This is not a story about forgiveness; Revenge is a show about retribution.
Emily Thorne (Emily Van Camp) is the newest arrival in the Hamptons. By all appearances, she's a friendly and sophisticated "girl next door," but the exclusive world she's immersed herself in is tied to a dark family history, and Emily is anything but what she seems.
After her father was framed for a horrific crime by neighbours he trusted and was sentenced to a life in prison, Emily never saw her father again and spent her childhood consumed by rage, loss and betrayal.
Years later she returned to the Hamptons under an assumed identity with one endgame - Revenge - every social overture a carefully planned chip at the foundation of her sworn enemies until their lives come crashing down around them.
Now she must face the consequences of her actions and the havoc she has wreaked on those around her as she continues her fight to avenge her father's death.
Central to all the conspirators are Victoria and Conrad Grayson. Conrad is CEO of Grayson Global, David's old employer, and Victoria is Conrad's wife (David's old lover to boot). At first we believe these two power players are the masterminds of the cover up, but we soon realise that they are only the tip of the iceberg.
Emily's friend, Nolan Ross, is there to aid Emily in her plans. Most notably, Nolan provides assistance to Emily is the areas of electronic surveillance and espionage and keeps Emily's childhood friend and current secret love, Jack Porter, out of harm's way.
Nothing will stop Emily's pursuit of justice and no one is off limits.
