What message are we to glean from the Season 2 promo poster for Revenge? There will be blood, perhaps? So much blood that it produces a red sky at morning?
The image itself is very much like the one used to pimp the show’s freshman year: Emily/Amanda (Emily VanCamp) modeling a gown of thorns on a Hamptons beach. She’s even pointed in more or less the same direction as last time (so presumably “Her Next Move” will not be a U-turn that involves forgiving and/or forgetting).
Maybe, because this time Curlylocks has turned her back to us, it’s a signal that, whereas before she tried not to hurt any innocent bystanders, now anything goes? She’s turned her back on her conscience to fight dirty (the Graysons) with dirty (her own mad skills, minus pesky pangs of guilt).
Your astute analyses and wild speculation in the comments below, please. And remember: Revenge‘s sophomore season kicks off Sept. 30 on ABC.
