Can someone make up their minds? Emily VanCamp surprised fans on Sunday, May 17, when she tweeted about the Revenge series finale’s biggest twist.
“Emily did not receive Victorias heart!! The idea was that it was a recurring nightmare that would haunt her forever. #Truth #Revenge,” the Canadian actress, 29, wrote.

But the Captain America: Civil War star’s tweet directly contradicts what both costar Madeleine Stowe and showrunner Sunil Nayar told Us Weekly following the explosive finale.
“It was absolutely real,” Stowe, 56, told Us. “We wanted Amanda to be haunted by something. She can never be totally rid of [Victoria]. So they created this recurring dream — and Amanda’s a very credible witness. We believe everything that happened. You have to believe in the credibility of this young girl. So the answer is, in the first draft, we actually started shooting and it was Victoria’s heart. We wanted to leave the audience with a greater sense of a haunting. Because Amanda wouldn’t know.”
Nayar admitted he purposefully left the answer up to interpretation.
“I had lots of conversations with Emily and Madeleine about it, and I know that they had definitive opinions,” he said. “Emily really loved the psychological reality of it, I think having been shot before at the other wedding and for what this character can actually withstand in the way of living. Emily loved the psychological underpinning of it, which Madeleine also embraced, but I think there was to her, also the fun of both women actually died and both women actually lived, which was something that I felt was really interesting also.”
Tell Us: Do you prefer the physical reality of the heart transplant or the psychological idea of it?
