The moment we’ve been waiting for in REVOLUTION has finally happened in this fall finale. Miles and Monroe finally reunite in a giant display of awesomeness and complete stupidity.
Last week, we knew our heroes finally arrived in Philadelphia. This week, it’s time for them to make their move. Their goal? Find Danny, and rescue him. That’s it. There’s no other priority.
To do this, the group holes up in a militia member’s house (apparently someone friendly to Miles), and Miles goes off to do some recon. At the HQ, Neville notes that he received a coded message from last week’s dead guy that he was bringing Miles in. Since that guy is dead, Neville rightfully assumes that he made it to town and is there right now. Mr. Smart Guy that he is immediately figures he’s somewhere close to those tunnels and that the militia member’s house is where Miles would likely go. This is the smartest thing Neville has ever done. The dumbest thing? Not killing Miles the 80 opportunities he’s had to do so in the past.
So, Neville gets to the not-so-safe house and captures Charlie, Nora and Aaron. He throws Charlie in a cell with her mother. Inexplicably, Neville leaves the other two alive. Naturally, Miles recognizes what’s happened and hatches a brilliant plan. He goes to Neville’s house and holds Julia hostage (at sword-point) unless he releases our heroes. Neville brings back Nora and The Googlenator. No Charlie, but Neville does give up her location before he and Julia get locked in a closet.
At the power plant where the kids are held, Charlie and her mother are reunited with Danny. Monroe tells Rachel that the doctor she killed last week was building a pendant amplifier as a backup. Rachel has to finish it or one of the kids eats a gun. She reluctantly agrees and gets to work with Sgt. Strausser breathing over her.
Fast forward a little bit, and the gang infiltrates the power plant. Rachel finishes the device, and she manages to kill Sgt. Strausser in the process. The kids are rescued, and this leads to one of the most anticipated epic battles in the show. Miles finally faces Monroe, and the general offers Miles a place at his side again. So, while Miles has a gun trained on an unarmed Monroe, he hesitates about shooting him. Miles says he’s sorry for not shooting Monroe when he had the chance before. They struggle, and the gun completely discharges. It’s gonna be a sword fight, and it leads directly to the cliffhanger. Check it out…
So, that’s it. REVOLUTION returns to NBC in late March, and the creators promise that it will pick up exactly where it left off… with that hovering helicopter!
What have you thought of the season so far? Are you going to stick with it when it returns in March, or is the four-month hiatus going to kill your interest? Let us know in the comments!
