Revolution builds a Particle Accelerator like the LHC at CERN (?)

Large Hadron Collider

   This screen captures are from episode 1x08 "Ties That Bind", in which Randall talks with Grace about the pendant that Monroe has and how this will have "ramifications". Then they show a giant machine that is being build and it reminded me of the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) experiment at CERN. After googling it I found that that particular machine they showed is exactly like one of the particle detectors at the LHC called ATLAS (picture above).

24 Alum Annie Wersching will Guest-Star on Revolution

   TVLine has learned that Annie Wersching, who played 24 FBI agent Renee Walker, will guest-star on TV’s highest-rated freshman drama as Emma, who was Miles Matheson’s first love — and also the first object of Sebastian Monroe’s obsession. When Emma resurfaces in the current timeline, it sets the stage for a dramatic confrontation between the gentleman frenemies.

   Wersching is the third 24 alumna to appear on Revolution. Kim Raver recurs as Captain Neville’s wife, while Leslie Hope recently booked a multi-episode arc as the president of the Georgia Federation. (The connective tissue: Onetime 24 EP Jon Cassar directs for Revolution.)

Revolution Reduces Episodes From 22 to 20

This is what The Futon Critic informs:
As for "Revolution," Greenblatt made an off-handed remark during the executive session to "the last 10 episodes" of the season left to air. Said number would put the season total at 20 episodes, two shy of the traditional full season order of 22. A spokesperson subsequently confirmed to me that there are indeed 10 episodes left to air.

Leslie Hope is President Foster for the Georgia Republic

  Is the Monroe Republic going to have some competition when “Revolution” returns to NBC on March 25? That we do not know; however, we can say with some certainty that there is going to be at least some more competition on the show from powerful people across other parts of the country.

  Sources have confirmed that former “24″ star Leslie Hope (whose last name seems strangely appropriate given the destitute state of many of the characters’ lives on this show) has signed up for a significant multi-episode storyline on the drama series, where she will be serving as President Foster for the Georgia Republic. She is described as being both tough and seasoned, and we’re personally hoping that she will give Miles, Charlie, and the rest of this crew someone different to turn to.

Revolution Animated Webisodes - Episode 1

   Missing Revolution on Monday nights? NBC is keeping the show’s power on during its winter hiatus by rolling out a series of animated webisodes.

   Starting today, the network is debuting online webisodes every week through Feb. 18 on, YouTube, Hulu and on VOD. The network is also putting a version of the show’s pilot online that includes commentary from showrunner Eric Kripke and executive producer/director Jon Favreau.

   The six webisodes are based on the letters written by Sgt. Joseph Wheatly (Reed Diamond), the character who led Miles (Billy Burke) into those oxygen-depleted tunnels toward Philadelphia and into a trap set by Gen. Monroe (David Lyons).

6 Tips About Revolution's Return

Miles and Monroe
   "The revolution and the battle against Monroe really begins."

   That was the party line Sunday at Revolution's panel during NBC's winter TV previews, as executive producer Eric Kripke promised reporters that the second half of the series' freshman season will actually begin to deliver on the promise of the title.

   When last we left Miles (Billy Burke), Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos), Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell) and the rest of the gang, they had escaped Monroe's (David Lyons) clutches only to come face-to-face with his fleet of helicopters — all thanks to Rachel's pendant amplifier, which provided power to his new army.

   Impending battle aside — and there will be many on several fronts — Kripke says that at its core, Revolution is a family show and in the second half of the season, the Matheson family will be tested. "The story becomes about can this family — some of them are related by blood, some of them are just related by loyalty. Can they stick together in the face of these overwhelming odds and this overwhelming danger?" Kripke says. "And can you maintain your soul when you're a warrior?"

   "This is The Waltons with swords," he adds. "We really want to make sure it always has an incredible amount of heart."
