The hit ABC primetime drama series, Revenge has released some tune-in information, and threw a little scoopage to TV Guide, too, on the appearance of Adrienne Barbeau, who will play Victoria Grayson’s (Madeleine Stowe) wicked mother, Marion, in a flashback-filled November 25th episode! Soap fans last saw Barbeau as Suzanne, the wife of the Balkan, in the convoluted Brenda storyline on General Hospital!
In an all-new episode of Revenge titled, “Lineage,” hindsight is 20/20 when a flashback to 2006 has Victoria getting a surprise visit from her estranged mother, triggering memories of her tumultuous upbringing. Emily embarks on her first mission under Takeda’s training, where she meets Aiden and learns of his revenge path. 2006 is also the year Nolcorp goes public, and Carl Porter gets into hot water when he crosses the wrong people on the docks.
“We’re explaining how Victoria became Victoria” originally teased Revenge creator Mike Kelley. “If you think Victoria’s bad, wait until you see how she got that way.” Now according to TVG: “While the majority of the hour flashes back to 2006 (when Emily first met Aiden and Jack and Declan’s father got caught up in some trouble), Victoria will also think back to when she was 15, “right at the point where you know the events happening around her are going to change her into the wicked woman we know,” says Kelley, who eventually plans to have Victoria go search for her MIA daddy.”
