COMEDY THE ODD COUPLE
7. 3 0PM, T E N

REVENGE 9PM, S E VEN So by now we know, and Emily (Emily VanCamp) knows her dad David Clarke (James Tupper) is alive and in town. Trouble is that evil Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) is somehow pulling the strings. Meanwhile Emily is trying to organise a reunion to introduce herself and grappling with the guilt about all she has done in his name. Thought it couldn’t get more complicated? Welcome to Revenge.
