revenge madeleine stowe victoria grayson falcon victory abc 'Revenge': Is the Falcon Victoria's son?

If you didn’t believe “Revenge” was a soap opera, the past few episodes should convince you otherwise. Kidnappings, crazy revelations, unknown offspring and previously unmentioned hackers have all appeared in the once calm world of the Hamptons. One of the biggest revelations of the most recent episode, “Victory,” concerns Victoria’s son.

And we don’t mean Daniel.

Warning: If you haven’t guessed by now, there are some spoilers in the following article. You probably should not read this before watching “Victory.”

Thanks to the always useful Mason Treadwell, we now know that Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) had a son when she was 16. The baby was given up and landed in foster care. Now that Emily (Emily VanCamp) knows this secret, we can surely expect to meet the long-lost child soon.

Or have we met him already?

There are really only a few options if Victoria’s pre-Grayson child isn’t a new and upcoming character. He would have to be a man in his early to mid 30s (depending on how old Victoria is supposed to be). He is probably a bad man, thanks to genetics and a life in foster care. He definitely has to have some connection to the story — mostly because it wouldn’t be fun otherwise.

Who could that be?

One possibility might be that Initiative henchman, Trask (Burn Gorman). He seems a bit old, but you never know when TV years are involved. This would certainly help increase the connections between the Graysons and the terrorists.

But there is another option. What if Victoria’s illegitimate son is the Falcon? This skilled, mysterious hacker has the ability to best even Nolan when it comes to computer stuff, and he has connections to both the Graysons and to the Initiative. It’s a safe bet that the Falcon has not yet appeared in-person, but we are definitely going to meet the man.

Unless the Falcon brings a twist (like “he” is really Padma or something), it would make for a good story if the guy were Victoria’s child.

“Revenge” airs Sundays at 9pm on ABC.
