Loser Daughter of Loser Dad: Part of the reason Amanda was in Juvie until her 18th birthday will have been due to a chain of foster households who treated her according to this trope.It has been revealed that the child psychologist in charge of Amanda's case was bribed by Victoria into treating Amanda like this. She then used Amanda's refusal to accept this as a reason to keep her committed in a juvenile facility. We don't know if Amanda was ever even placed in a foster home.
It wasn't Daniel who was killed in the How We Got Here opening.The camerawork clearly goes to some trouble to never show the body's face, which has to have some purpose as we see Daniel in the same episode.
It was Daniel who was shot in the opening, but he isn't dead.No one has checked for a pulse yet.
Charlotte is Amanda/Emily's sister.Victoria Grayson and Amanda'a dad were lovers. Charlotte is surprisingly nice, gets good grades and her love interest is the little bro of the guy who carries a torch for Amanda (a 17 year old torch). The two girls have much in common. And think, what a lovely, twisted arc this would be... like the Albert character in the Caveizel movie (you know, when Dantes discovers that Albert is actually his and Mercedes' son. The reason why she rushed off so quickly to marry Fernand was because she was pregnant, not because she forgot Edmond so quickly.)
Before he was sent to prison, David Clarke invested in a biotech company that was working on life-extension treatments, and they tested them on Sammy the dog.We know that David was willing to invest in another young entrepreneur with a wild idea, and there has to be some reason that a 17-year-old Labrador is still not only alive, but pretty active.
Tyler is running his own revenge scheme on the GraysonsHe got close to Daniel so he can use him to get closer to the Graysons. By appearing as the responsible friend who is trying to keep Daniel out of trouble he can gain their trust.
Tyler is running his own revenge scheme against Daniel himself
The reason Tyler's been acting the way he has toward Emily is that he's a clingy jealous boy with regard to Daniel.
Sammy the dog had an encounter with Ned from Pushing Daisies.That would totally solve the problem...
The Grayson's have a hidden Dragon (not Frank) who participates in the cover-ups from the shadows. Wouldn't that explain how Frank should have been caught on camera entering Lydia's suite but that footage never made it to the police? Or how there should have been obvious signs of struggle that should rule out suicide? And, maybe, that's where Conrad thinks the footage inside Lydia's suite came from.
David Clark is still alive.We never see his corpse.
There's a reason why Nolan is so unpopular, and it's going to be revealed at some point in the near future.Tyler said it himself: 'You'd think people would be crawling all over you, and yet here you are, all alone.' Nolan did something that got him alienated, and eventually, we'll find out what.
The killer's identity.We know it can't be Jack, as he didn't show up until after the murder was committed. And it seems highly unlikely to be Daniel, as that's just too obvious. My money, at the moment, is on Takeda.
Jack will find out Emily is Amanda in the season finale when he notices the double infinity tattoo from "Legacy" on her arm.Now that the original Emily is out of the way, he's going to have to catch up with the game pretty soon or it will be increasingly difficult to find things for him to do in each episode. The tattoo would give a needed importance to "Legacy."
Ashley will ultimately be the Big Bad of Season 2, which will conclude with her being destroyed.[[spoiler:Jossed. Looking at the season 2 finale, it looks like it was really Conrad.
Nolan is alive, and will remain so.It really wouldn't make dramatic sense to kill him off at this point, and the white-haired man needs to interrogate him to find out who else is hunting the Graysons anyways.
Big Ed is working for other bosses.Worst. Security guard. Ever.
Amanda Clarke is this universe's Batman.Think about it... left an orphan at an early age, she used her wealth to travel around the world, training for vengeance. She bugs and hacks everyone around her, looking for conspiracies to help her take down the dark forces of the Hamptons. She's also a martial arts/stealth master who comes up with a Batman Gambit for almost everything. True, her vengeance is a little more focused and a little less productive than Batman's, but she's clearly at least a second cousin. Once she takes down the Graysons and her revenge is complete, she'll turn her skills to vigilante crimefighting.
The double infinity is later on going to represent love, kindness and family in opposition to Amanda Clarke's choice of revengeDavid Clarke wanted Amanda to choose a normal life where she could be happy, the double infinity will later play into the theme of the show because it was his love for Amanda. The double infinity is the symbol of love.
David Clarke is still alive.In The Count of Monte Cristo, Edmond Dantes escapes from prison by faking his own death. It will eventually be revealed that David Clarke, as his updated version, has done the same.
The whole show is one big Batman Gambit by Satoshi Takeda.If David Clarke was so invested in his daughter forgiving his enemies, why would he provide her with the contact information for a man who could and would train her to destroy them? Answer: he wouldn't. Takeda planted that info in the box, knowing that Amanda would come to him and he could mold her into a tool to destroy the Graysons and/or the Americon Initiative for his own reasons.
Takeda is working one long Xanatos Gambit to destroy the InitiativeSimilar to the above one: He probably will also turn out to of been part of their group originally until he saw how bad they were becoming and decided to seperate from them. Then after what happened with David Clarke he found out they were involved and knew it was time to get to work taking them down. Part of this being he arranged for Amanda to find out about him and start her quest for revenge. Nolan out of loyalty to her might then go against Takeda believing he's doing the right thing (feeling bad about how things went before) and become a potential Spanner in the Works. If that happens then she'll have to prevent him from Takeda.
David Clarke was involved in the Initiative.David Clarke actually was involved in something murky with the Initiative and was guilty of a crime, but not the crime that he was set up for. Either the Initiative agreed to set him up to get him out of the way, or he was so high up in the upper echelons that even they didn't know they were setting up one of their own.
Jack is an alien.
Revenge takes place in the same universe as Once Upon a TimeRather than being a modern-day version of Edmond Dantes, Emily quite literally is Edmond Dantes (a female version) transferred over by the dark curse Regina cast who somehow managed to escape Storybrooke and is living in the Hamptons (just like with Frankenstein, a literary character who isn't from the Enchanted Forest but got caught in the curse anyway).
