All new episodes of Revenge begin again this Sunday on ABC, in it’s new old timeslot from 10PMEST/PST! In an interview with Xfinity.com, the series showrunner, Sunil Nayar answered some questions about the same-sex romance of Nolan (Gabriel Mann) and Patrick (Justin Hartley) and previews just who comes into Nolan’s life next!
On the duo of Polan, Nayar related: “It’s a fascinating dynamic because it’s not the love triangle that you usually see. It’s a person torn between a passionate love of two people with whom they want to be in a relationship. It’s the person who’s torn between the love of the person who’s their mother, who they’re just getting to know, and their lover, who they’re just getting to know. So that was really for us what the power of the story was, and so I think the fact that it was a gay relationship was almost secondary to the fact that it’s just a powerful relationship story that we got to tell.”
As to what is ahead for Nolan, Nayar would say: “He’s fully in support of what Emily’s (Emily VanCamp) doing. I mean, you’ll see how he deals with the nature of Emily’s blackout situations. It affects him very deeply, and then coming up later in the season he also has sort of a young protégé from prison join him who also sort of rattles his entire world.”
So, do you hope that Nolan and Patrick will somehow continue? Are you intrigued to find out who the “young protege’ from prison” could be and how it will affect Nolan’s world later this season? Comment below!
