Season four of Revenge has centered around the shocking return of David Clarke (James Tupper) – the father of Emily AKA Amanda (Emily VanCamp) – and former lover of Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe). For three seasons the series focused on Emily’s takedown of the entire Grayson clan to exact revenge for their part in killing him. But now that David is alive, was all that for naught?
Actor James Tupper who plays the mysterious-acting David Clarke chatted it up with TV Line about: David’s reunion with Emily which began at the end of last week’s episode cliffhanger, what David truly feels for Victoria now, why the guy is acting so strange and much more. Here are a few interesting excerpts below!
Tupper on the audience finding out what did happen to David for those 20 years he had been missing: “Oh, you’re going to find out soon. It’s like peeling back the layers of an onion; every episode moving forward will reveal more of what happened. This Sunday, the FBI begins to investigate more of David’s history. You’ll find out more about the surveillance photos from last week and what he’s been up to. David and Emily finally also acknowledge each other as father and daughter for the first time. He finally gets to tell her how he feels about her past actions, how she’s taken revenge. I think it’ll be shocking for the fans.”
Tupper on if David’s opinion of Victoria is changing: “I think, even from the beginning of the season, that was a question. But she’s also the love of his life. When he went away, he dreamed of having her back, having that life back. In a way, it’s a battle between his head and his heart when it comes to his relationship with Victoria.
