But the cast got to film a happy scene for a change on Monday as they shot a wedding sequence in Redondo Beach.
The nuptials were between Amanda and Jack (played by Margarita Levieva and Nick Wechsler respectfully), who got engaged during an episode of the show which aired in the US last month.

But the actresses in particular looked chilly and were quick to get into slippers and padded coats when the cameras stopped rolling.

Discussing why the show has proved so popular, Emily recently told GQ: 'I think revenge is a universal theme. It's fun to delve into the lives of the rich and beautiful people of the Hamptons.
‘I always feel like I'm playing a character when I'm in a beautiful dress, with my hair coiffed. I like getting down and dirty. It's really fun,' she said.
‘There's nothing better than setting an a**hole's house on fire. It's those moments when I think "I love my job!"'
Close knit: Emily was seen cradling her on-screen godson Carl and then shared a cuddle with Gabriel
Something he said: Emily and Gabriel clearly get along great and at one point Gabriel had the star in stitches
