It seemed as if Emily Thorne finally got payback on the season 3 finale of "Revenge." With a new season being filmed, what can fans expect from the characters? It is being teased that season 4 will be just as exciting, if not more than the previous seasons. On July 24, Hollywood Hills posted casting details for the upcoming season. There are also "Revenge" season 4 spoilers regarding why David Clarke is turning up alive, so if you don't want to know what will happen, then stop reading.

Casting news

A new character has been cast for the upcoming season. Brian Hallisay will be playing Ben, a local police officer and a new friend of Jack's. He is described as being fun-loving and easygoing. There are rumors that he will be Emily's new love interest, but that hasn't been confirmed. Viewers will meet him in the "Revenge" season 4 premiere episode.

Jack will be key

It is no secret that David Clarke will be a huge storyline when the show returns. However, he isn't the only character that will be focused on. With Emily Thorne attempting to "live in truth" and figuring out exactly who she is, Jack is going to be key this season. Executive producer Aaron Harberts revealed that Emily is going to ask Jack for help with that.

Why is David Clarke alive?

For three seasons, fans believed that David Clarke was dead. Emily spent a lot of time trying to get revenge for her father. On the season finale, viewers realized that he wasn't dead after all. In season 4, Emily will find out, but how will she deal with that? Harberts told E! Online that Emily needed a new element, something to really shake her up and force her to discover who Amanda is. He added that David Clarke is the one person who can really push Emily's buttons.

What do you think is going to happen in season 4 of "Revenge?" How will David Clarke affect Emily? Do you think that Ben will be Emily's new love interest or will his storyline be something else?
