This is not a story about forgiveness; Revenge is a show about retribution. Meet Emily Thorne, the newest resident of The Hamptons. When she was a little girl (and known as Amanda Clarke) her father, David Clarke, was framed for a horrific crime and subsequently sent to prison. While serving his time, the conspirators plotted and murdered David in order to prevent the truth from coming out. Emily is now back with a new identity and ready to take vengeance on the people that murdered her father and stole her childhood. Central to all the conspirators are Victoria and Conrad Grayson. Conrad is CEO of Grayson Global, David's old employer, and Victoria is Conrad's wife (David's old lover to boot). At first we believe these two power players are the masterminds of the cover up, but we soon realize that they are only the tip of the iceberg. Emily's friend Nolan Ross, is there to aid Emily in her plans. Most notably, Nolan provides assistance to Emily is the areas of electronic surveillance and espionage and keeps Emily's childhood friend, Jack Porter, out of harm's way. Nothing will stop Emily's pursuit of justice and no one is off limits.
