The tension is getting positively palpable over on ABC’s Revenge. Luckily, EW has an exclusive sneak peek at all that tension coming in the next new episode of the primetime soap, which returns from a three-week hiatus tomorrow, Feb. 8, with an hour titled “Perception.”

The clip below is important for two reasons: First, it’s viewers first glimpse at Grandpa Grayson, played by Knots Landing actor William Devane, and secondly, it reveals the hot-headed side of Jack (Nick Wechsler), who was recovering after being beaten up by henchmen the last time fans saw him. The official release from ABC says that Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) “tries to regain the upper hand by using Conrad’s own father against him,” and regarding Jack, he’ll find himself “wandering deeper into the fray.” That’s illustrated here, when Jack arrives at Grayson Manor madder than hell and ready to take the Graysons down.

Check out the clip here:
