While many were surprised by Daniel Grayson’s death on Sunday’s episode of Revenge, Josh Bowman wasn’t one of them.
The actor had pitched the idea of his character’s demise last season and said that this was the time for Daniel to go.
“We’re on our fourth season, and this is a show where that can happen at anytime,” said to TVLine.com in a recent interview. “I think it was a good decision for the story, and I think it’ll definitely serve its purpose to help the writers move forward. A death on this show can impact all the other characters; Daniel’s will definitely have a big impact on Victoria, Emily — and Margaux, of course, because of our little baby on the way.”
The actor also hinted at the show’s uncertain future and how Daniel’s death allows writers to end the series if they need to (and if it isn’t renewed).
“Yes. Helps the story to move forward and potentially reach its conclusion by the end of this season, but who knows? They probably want to do another season, but I have no idea.”
