This is the moment we’ve been waiting for in Revolution and it only took 10 episodes to get to it. Was it worth it and how do we feel from the pilot to this episode now? There’s going to be spoilers ahead, so just letting you know right off the top.
Revolution started off strong. It was something different. It made you think, what would you do? To me though it has kind of gone downhill. The reason is that they are milking everything to make this show stretch out. I hate that. There are no real cliff hangers on the show and sometimes I wasn’t in a hurry to watch it, letting two episodes stack up. Even for the midseason finale, I’m just getting around to watching it.
We still don’t know why the blackout was caused and why machines don’t work. What we do know is that Rachel is some kind of smarty engineer who helped develop this technology that may have caused the blackout and someone from the government is tracking the pendants.
Monroe has been making Rachel build this amplifier, which in theory sounds really good, but at the end of the episode we are seeing helicopters in the air. Where did they get the fuel for these things? I didn’t know they modified them to run on this magical fuel source, which I’m assuming is some sort of electricity. I’m kind of jumping ahead of myself though.
So in Nobody’s Fault But Mine, the gang is finally in Philadelphia to get Charlie’s brother back. The gang is captured while Miles is out scouting. Charlie is reunited with her mother and then shows how much she has changed by breaking her brother out of holding and escaping capture.
While this is happening, Monroe and Miles finally make contact after all these years. What is going to happen? We know in the last episode that Miles subconscious said he would join the militia if Monroe was willing to take him back. The scene was a little drawn out with the two of them making eye contact while it would cut to showing them as kids hanging out. Monroe says he forgives Miles for trying to kill him and would take him back. It looks like for a second that Miles apologizes and agrees to this but then the two start to duke it out with fisticuffs. I was telling the guys, I’m sorry but if I’m ever in a fight and have a gun or sword or something to get the upper hand in a fight I’m using it, forget honor and fighting like a man, I’m winning.
Well they finally pulls the swords and just as it’s about to come to an end with Miles killing Monroe, more of Monroe’s people come in and save him. Miles makes a quick dash for the conveniently placed open window and meets up with the rest of his gang and they are home free after rescuing Danny and Rachel. But then, that’s when the helicopter shows up with it’s guns a spinning and scene.
What do you guys think of the show, is it getting better or worse for you? I’m hoping that it really picks up after it comes back from hiatus and we get to see more fighting and less trying to rescue people. And less crying, dammit, there is crying in every episode!
