Daddy’s home!! James Tupper who plays David Clarke on the hit ABC drama Revenge has been upped to series regular. This news isn’t that shocking now that we know David Clarke is in fact alive. We kind of expected him to get a permanent job following his very-much-alive appearance right before stabbing Conrad.
But what does his return mean for our favorite revengers when they finally find out? Assuming he actually reveals himself. David being alive is literally a game-changer not just for Emily, but Victoria and Charlotte as well.
Wechsler along with executive producers Gretchen Berg and Aaron Herberts discussed what was ahead for season 4 during the ATX Television Festival.
“How it changes the series moving forward is [encapsulated] exactly where Emily and Nolan had that conversation in that sound-booth where she said, ‘I don’t know who Amanda Clarke is anymore.’ She’s really got to start confronting who Amanda Clarke is,” Harberts said.
It is said that David will also cause a lot of problems, namely for Emily and her arch nemesis Victoria. Obviously, Emily is his daughter and she’s been trying to avenge his death, but Victoria is his ex-lover and the two have a complicated history. I mean, lets not forget they have a daughter together! I feel like it is something Emily never thought of; what if her father was here. Would he want her to be trying to ruin Victoria’s life? Would he ask her to stop because he still loved her? It’s an interesting dynamic because Emily hates Victoria and vice-versa. Now with David being back, no one really knows which next move is the right one.
Victoria’s Revenge Agenda
Peace is not a possibility between these two, especially when Victoria finally gets out of the psychiatric hospital.
“She’s done terrible things, she’s obviously a very wounded and messed up character, but at the end of the day, when she manages to get out, she’s going to be setting her sights on Emily,” Harberts teased. “That’s going to be quite a drive, because we did see how Victoria reacted when ‘Amanda Clarke’ was out in the world, and she was bad to her … but when she actually takes stock of all the horribly awful things Emily has done and all the chaos she’s rained down on the Grayson family, she’s gonna be pissed, and she’ll come out swinging. As Emily is trying to create a new, more positive life for herself, as she tries to move forward, Victoria is going to be coming up behind her.”
Goodbye Emily, Hello Amanda
Emily will also be coming out to the world as Amanda Clarke, which is someone she doesn’t really know anymore. She’s been hiding behind Emily for so long, so seeing how people react when they find out will be really interesting. She’s obviously going to be coping with losing Aiden and that really does open up some doors for the Emily and Jack relationship we’ve been secretly hoping for. I guess it wasn’t a possibility when Emily was still Emily. Jack wanted to be with Amanda and now he has that chance.
“This year, Emily has the opportunity to come out as Amanda Clarke … as we get to know more about Emily/Amanda, she has to start confronting all the things she’s left undone and the mess she’s left behind, and how willing is she to clean up messes for all the people who’ve taken such good care of her? As we launch into season four, Jack becomes the center of that turmoil,” Harberts admitted. “There’s really only one character on the show who knows the relationship between David Clarke and the girl who was Amanda Clarke, and that’s Jack Porter. In a year of Emily asking herself ‘who is Amanda Clarke, how do I get back to that?’ Jack’s going to play such a huge component in that.”
Does Weschler (Jack Porter) agree?
“I think he’s crazy about her and wants to see justice being done,” Wechsler agreed. “His feelings for her will draw him into some morally complex situations. He might be willing to do something illegal, but less likely to do something immoral.”
Why Did They Bring David Back?
Well, he’s the only person that can really turn Emily’s world upside down and shake her to the core. With his return, she literally loses sight of everything because the one thing she’s been focusing on for so long is revenge for this man!
“It’s hard to introduce new characters who don’t have a past history with Emily, but will make her invest as much in their character,” Harberts said. “As we looked back, David seemed like someone who would shake an unshakable character to the core. She’s certainly not predictable, but she’s a machine and we know how she’s going to react in certain situations, but we don’t know how she’s going to take it when she finally sees her father. What if he says, ‘I’m disappointed in you.’ And what happens when he crosses into Victoria’s story and says, ‘She did some things to you. You don’t really know why, but there might’ve been a reason.’ [David] is a new barrier to entry [and] he can fill in a lot of the gaps Emily wasn’t privy to.”
What are your thoughts? Are you excited for season 4? Do you think Emily and David will get along? How will she react when she finds out her father never really died?

The Cleaning Lady Season 2 Finale—Premiere Date, Photos, Trailer and More
The Cleaning Lady is treating fans to a larger-than-life season 2 finale.
On Monday, December 12, FOX will air two back-to-back episodes of the thrilling series. Yep, you heard right—two hours of The Cleaning Lady are coming at you to wrap up the extraordinary and gripping second season!
Below, we’ve got your synopsis and a gallery of photos that reveal what you can expect from the final installment of the year!
When Does ‘Firefly Lane’ Season 2 Come Out?
The wait is almost over!
Netflix is allowing fans to reunite with the Firefly Lane girls on December 2, 2022!
FireFly Lane Season 2 Part 1 will debut on Friday at 12 a.m. PT (3 a.m ET and 2 a.m. CT) on the streaming service, and while that may be very late in the night, the good thing is you’ll have all weekend to catch up with Tully (Katherine Heigl) and Kate (Sarah Chalke).
Why Is Kate Mad at Tully at the End of Firefly Lane Season 1?
The biggest question on everyone’s mind is why is Kate so mad at Tully. At the end of the first season, it’s revealed that Kate’s father, Bud, died, but when her best friend Tully arrives at the church, Kate tells her that she has “some nerve showing up here.” Season 2 Part 1 will hopefully answer what led to the rift between Kate and Tully in 2004/2005.
How Many Episodes in Firefly Lane Season 2 Part 1?
The season will have a total of nine episodes.
Part 2 of the season is set to arrive sometime in 2023 with episodes 10 through 16.
Who Died on Firefly Lane Season 1?
Bud, Kate’s father, passed away in the first season. Kate and Tully are at his funeral when it’s revealed that they are not on speaking terms anymore despite a decades-long friendship.
Firefly Lane Season 2 Cast
The key cast of the upcoming second season includes:
- Katherine Heigl – Tully Hart
- Sarah Chalke – Kate Mularkey
- Ali Skovbye – ’70s Tully Hart
- Roan Curtis – ’70s Kate Mularkey
- Ben Lawson – Johnny Ryan
- Beau Garrett – Cloud/Dorothy Hart
- Yael Yurman – Marah
- India de Beaufort – Charlotte/Charlie
- Greg Germann – Benedict Binswagner
- Jolene Purdy – Justine Jordan
- Ignacio Serricchio – Danny Diaz
Firefly Lane Season 2 Synopsis
What could possibly have ended the tight-knit thirty year friendship of Tully and Kate, our “Firefly Lane Girls Forever?” We’ll learn the answer this season — but first — Kate grapples with the painful aftermath of Johnny’s ill-fated trip to Iraq, while Tully faces a lawsuit after walking away from her talk show, and must start her career over from the bottom. This leads her to search for answers about who she is and where she comes from — including a quest to find the father she never met, against the wishes of her secretive hippie mother, Cloud. In the ’80s, we see Kate and Johnny first fall in love, creating more than a little drama in the newsroom where they work, as Tully’s career rises and she spars (and flirts!) with cocky sportscaster Danny Diaz. She just might have met her match — that is, if they can stop arguing for five minutes. While in the ’70s, teenage Kate and Tully struggle to keep their friendship together as Cloud goes to jail for dealing drugs and Tully goes to live with her grandmother, far away from Firefly Lane. As the girls face the tumult of high school apart, they know the one thing they really need is each other.

‘Emily in Paris’ Season 3—Premiere Date and Trailer
Netflix is giving Emily in Paris fans the best holiday gift of all—a brand new season.
The third season of the Paris-set dramedy is set to premiere on Wednesday, December 21.
Fans can also unwrap an early gift as the streamer just dropped the trailer for the new season, which reveals Emily Cooper (Lily Collins) is pulling double-duty in both her professional and personal life.
Her indecision has left her in a bit of a mess, as she’s now juggling two jobs—her old gig with Madeline (Kate Walsh) and a gig at Sylvie’s new agency (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu). On top of it, her heart is also being pulled in two different directions as she’s torn between chef Gabriel (Lucas Bravo) and businessman Brit Alfie (Lucien Laviscount).
And based on the 2-minute trailer, her decisions will have plenty of consequences.
But don’t think that Emily isn’t carving out time for prioritizing life, as Parisians do, as she informs her gal pal Mindy (Ashley Park) that she’s all about “life” right now.
The work-life balance includes stunning vacations (and a balloon ride), incredible outfits, plenty of champagne, and much more.
As the trailer suggests, choose Paris… on December 21!
