Whose days are numbered on Revenge? Viewers will find out by the end of Sunday's two-hour season finale.
"For the first time, one of our core cast members will not survive the season," executive producer Mike Kelley tells TVGuide.com.
As the season winds down, The Initiative is kicking its plan into high gear, staging a city-wide blackout that signals that something major is about to go down. But who is the group's target? And will the death be by its hands? Or will the victim — and the killer — come as a complete surprise? We rank each of the main cast members' odds for demise.
Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp): 100 to 1
Let's be realistic: The show is about Emily's quest for revenge, so unless the writers are planning a major plot shift, there's no way she's a goner.
Revenge Video: Do Victoria and Emily have something in common?
Jack Porter (Nick Wecshler): 50 to 1
Since we've been essentially told that Emily and Jack are the endgame, this option is also pretty far-fetched. Jack has gotten his hands dirty a bit this season and has certainly been involved with shady characters, but it's very unlikely that he'll bite it.
Daniel Grayson (Josh Bowman): 25 to 1
Would anyone even mind if Daniel kicked the bucket? Probably not, but he is Emily's main "in" to the Grayson family, so he's not going anywhere anytime soon. Plus: The writers already played with the idea that he was dead in Season 1.
Nolan Ross (Gabriel Mann): 20 to 1
If fan favorite Nolan is killed, the series might lose its remaining loyal viewers. Aside from being Emily's wingman and a one-liner machine, he's also one of the only people who knows Emily's secret, and the series needs that confidant as a character and for exposition. Also, without Nolan's tech-savviness and brains, Team Revenge would get nowhere.
Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe): 15 to 1
Like Daniel, the series already led us to believe she was dead in the Season 1 finale. But while Victoria serves as Emily's icy nemesis, her death could serve as both a game-changer and a big notch in Emily's revengenda belt.
Conrad Grayson (Henry Czerny): 15 to 1
Conrad is a great villain on the show, but with his story line taking an unnecessary turn towards politics, the show could easily survive with him out of the picture.
Charlotte Grayson (Christa B. Allen): 5 to 1
Before her pregnancy reveal, Charlotte would've been a likely candidate to die, but now it seems like there's a reason for her to remain relevant for another season. Plus: It's through her that we see Emily's secret longing for a real family and her protective instincts as an older sister.
Ashley Davenport (Ashley Madekwe): 2 to 1
What does Ashley even do anymore? Her accent is fun and she's become quite the manipulative schemer over the past season, but is there really a need to keep her around? This is the best way for the series to tease a "major death" without suffering any consequences by losing her character.
Declan Porter (Connor Paolo): 2 to 1
Yes, Ashley's useless, but there's probably not one person who would miss Declan if he were gone. (Sorry, Dec!) The only reason to keep him around is for Jack, who has already lost every single person in his life and it would not feasible to add another to that list — let alone add two in one season (RIP, Fauxmanda). That said, Jack has already hit rock bottom, so would this really make things much worse for him?
