Review of Episode 11 'The Stand'

Review Episode 11 "The Stand"

Review by SpoilerTV

   And we’re back! Revolution returns with a strong episode in “The Stand” written by Anne Cofell Saunders and Paul Grelling and directed by Steve Boyum. Boyum, of course, also directed a number of Supernatural episodes for Kripke and has already directed “Sex and Drugs” in the first half of Revolution’s season. Boyum is adept with both the emotional scenes in the episode and the action – and this episode had lots of both. I think we are going to have to prepare ourselves for every episode Saunders writes, as she was also the writer of “The Plague Dogs” in which we lost Maggie (Anna Lise Phillips). This was a good episode, tightly written and well-paced, but I’m curious to see what the ratings are like after such a long hiatus. I confess that some of my enthusiasm for the show had worn off, and I wasn’t as excited for its return as I was for its initial premiere. That said, I am pretty excited to see where we go from here as this episode unfolded a lot like a second premiere, setting the stage for the rest of the season.

   The episode begins with a quick re-cap of the first half of the season, re-setting the stage, which was particularly helpful after the long hiatus. And then, we’re right back to our group facing down an armed helicopter. It was a bit implausible that no one was killed or even wounded as they ran away across an open field, but perhaps the helicopter pilots and gunners were rusty after not having flown for fifteen years.

   Neville (Giancarlo Esposito) is the one who has to tell Monroe (David Lyons) that Miles (Billy Burke) has gotten away again. Interestingly, Monroe seems to suggest that Neville isn’t trying very hard to capture/kill Miles, so perhaps, there’s more of a backstory there that we will see unfold. We do learn that Monroe is much more interested in expanding his Republic by destroying the Rebels, Georgia, the Plains Nation, and California than he is in killing Miles, however. This is a great set up for where the series is going. They’ve already cast the leader of the Georgia Federation. President Foster will be played by Leslie Hope. It will be interesting to see where our band of heroes fits in – will they end up fighting with Georgia against the Republic or is Georgia corrupt too?

I've been holding this for a week waiting for the first episode to air, so now I can post it. That means this is heavy on spoilers if you haven't watched "The Stand" episode 11 and I recommend not reading this. Thanks to

Elizabeth Mitchell & Eric Kripke Tease An Epic Return

Revolution returns March 25
When Revolution returns from its four mouth hiatus, there won’t just be power – there will also be answers. At least, that’s what creator Eric Kripke and star Elizabeth Mitchell promised when we talked about the show’s explosive second half of the season, which resumes March 25th.

“For me, the story was never about what caused the blackout,” Kripke said. “It’s not just based on one particular mystery – it’s based on these characters, and this world that the characters have these adventures in.”

That world: a post-apocalyptic landscape 15 years after a blackout destroyed all forms of power. Following the November episode that also doubled as the show’s winter finale, Monroe had achieved enough power to unleash some deadly helicopter missiles on our characters who were on the run from the Milita, having just broken Rachel out of Monroe’s confinement. The action reunited the until-then absent mother with her two children, bringing kidnapped Danny back into the fold.

Eric Kripke. Revolution's creator
Kripke, who previously mentioned that he intended on answering what is no doubt the biggest question on everyone’s mind, confirmed that Episode 13 would reveal “pretty much everything there is to know about why the blackout happens. The reality was that as a character, Rachel knew why the blackout happened and now she’s back with our heroes,” Kripke admitted. “We were really wrestling with the question of, ‘why wouldn’t she just tell them? And Jon [Favreau] said, ‘so have her tell them.’ We reveal why the blackout happened, but the card we really have up our sleeve is that we open our door to a whole new world of questions.”

Among those questions – where is Grace? What happened to Randall? And what is the dangerous history between Miles and Rachel? While Kripke mentioned the storytelling would move at an “aggressive red-blooded pace,” viewers shouldn’t worry that Revolution will run itself into the ground answering questions.

What happened to Nuclear Power Plants after the Blackout in Revolution?

Radioactive Zone
   A lot of fans have complained that Revolution's producers and writers didn't do their homework when writing the show. Some of the complaints over the first episodes were the lack of steam machines. Of course this stoped after the steam-train appearance in episode 5, "Soul Train". Clearly, writers and producers knew from the begining that steam machines and steam engines must be used, simply because it's the most advanced technology out there that doesn't work with electricity. But, among this complaints was one that caught my attention: "what happened to Nuclear Power Plants after the Blackout?". Some say that a complete blackout like in Revolution, would cause a catastrophic nuclear crisis, probably like Chernobyl.

   The explanation of what could happen in this scenario is quite long but this article explains it extremely well using Japan's nuclear crisis caused by the earthquake of 2011.

How Japan's Nuclear Crisis Works

   Commercial nuclear reactors are a fact of life in many parts of the developed world. Because they do make use of a radioactive fuel source, these reactors are designed and built to the highest standards of the engineering profession, with the perceived ability to handle nearly anything that nature or mankind can dish out. Earthquakes? No problem. Hurricanes? No problem. Direct strikes by jumbo jets? No problem. Terrorist attacks? No problem. Strength is built in, and layers of redundancy are meant to handle any operational abnormality.

Shortly after an earthquake hit Japan on March 11, 2011, however, those perceptions of safety began rapidly changing. Explosions rocked several different reactors in Japan, even though initial reports indicated that there were no problems from the quake itself. Fires broke out at the Onagawa plant, and there were explosions at the Fukushima Daiichi plant.

So what went wrong? How can such well-designed, highly redundant systems fail so catastrophically? Let's take a look.

The Death of a Seminal Character and a Head-Spinning Cliffhanger

Revolution Returns March 25!
   Now we finally know why they called it Revolution. When NBC's rambunctious action-adventure series premiered to record ratings last fall, it was all about a dystopian future world without power or technology. But when the show returns March 25 after a four-month break, we'll suddenly find our ragtag heroes, led by crossbow-wielding Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos) and her sword-swinging uncle, Miles (Billy Burke), under attack by a squadron of military choppers. Juice has been restored — and the villains have it!

   "The goal of this series was always to put power into the hands of the bad guys and make the good guys overwhelmingly screwed," says creator-showrunner Eric Kripke. "This is a seismic shift for our show, almost like we've shot a new pilot that takes our characters in an entirely different ­direction. It's the true start of the revolution."

   The return episode is so packed with intense events — including the death of a seminal character and a head-spinning cliffhanger — that it had the cast in shock. "It's completely crazy," says Spiridakos. "When we got the script, we were all like, 'Whaaat? My God! This is all happening in one hour?' It was so ­insane, all we could do was laugh."

   And then get deadly serious. "We're coming back like we're a big-ass, big-screen, action-movie spectacular," Burke says. "As actors, we felt like we were in the middle of a war zone, what with the helicopters, bullet hits and explosions. And it was all really happening. We didn't need to fake it and make it work later with CGI."

New Pictures from the Set of Revolution

Revolution Arrives to UK on March 29 on SKY1 HD

The action-packed U.S. drama series REVOLUTION, executively produced by J.J. Abrams, is arriving on Sky 1 HD on March 29 with a blockbuster double episode.

The show is currently airing on NBC in the United States and has proved to be incredibly successful, ranking as the #1 new series of the 2012-13 season. REVOLUTION has also achieved an incredible 13.3m total viewers, which is the most successful scripted launch in over three years.

The series is an epic adventure thriller from Supernatural's Eric Kripke and J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions. The first episode begins with a family struggling to reunite in a post-apocalyptic American landscape: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology has mysteriously blacked out.

This is an action-packed adventure seen through the eyes of one strong-willed young woman, Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos, Being Human), and her brother, Danny (Graham Rogers, Struck by Lighting). When Danny is kidnapped by militia leaders, Charlie must reconnect with her estranged Uncle Miles (Billy Burke, Twilight), a former Marine, living a reclusive life. Together, with a rogue band of survivors, they set out to rescue Danny, overthrow the militia and ultimately re-establish the United States of America. Whilst also searching for answers on the mystery of why the power failed, and if it will ever return.

10 Things You Need to Know About Revolution's Return

Revolution Returns March 25
The revolution is about to begin!

On Monday, March 25 (10/9c), Revolution returns after a four-month hiatus — and though it's been quite a while since the show has been on the air, the NBC series will pick up exactly where we left off, with Miles (Billy Burke) & Co. on the run from Monroe (David Lyons) and his fleet of newly powered helicopters. But will they be able to make a daring escape? In short, duh! The show can't end like that! But what's in store for the survivors? The cast and executive producers teased what's coming up at Saturday's PaleyFest panel, moderated by TV Guide Magazine's Michael Schneider. Get the scoop below:

1. The Blackout, revealed: "We reveal why the power went out and we do it early," executive producer Eric Kripke said, noting that it will open the door to a bigger mystery. "It will be fun to see the audience's reaction to it." Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell) actually knows the real reason, so, "there's no reason she wouldn't say it."

2. The world expands: As Monroe's power grows, so too will the world of Revolution as the group may need to rely on other territories in the fight against Monroe. "This revolution against Monroe really begins," Kripke says. "[They] all join together to take on this evil tyrant." But executive producer Jon Favreau noted that loyalties with these other federations may change as power shifts hands. Among the new faces is Leslie Hope's President Foster, the leader of the Georgia Federation. "She's badass," Kripke said. "She's really steely and strong and has her own management style that is quite different than Monroe's."

3. Charlie's not a kid anymore: Even though Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) has been reunited with her mother Rachel and brother Danny (Graham Rogers), she will continue to fight for the rebellion, which will put her at odds with herself. "Is she able to keep her humanity through it all?" Spiridakos said. She may find help in that department in Jason (J.D. Pardo), who Spiridakos noted will be around the rebels more in the second half of the season.

20 things we learned from the Revolution PaleyFest Panel

Revolution Panel at Paley Fest 2013
   After Friday night's spoiler-free PaleyFest panel for "The Walking Dead," Saturday night's (March 2) panel for "Revolution" was practically the opposite.

   Eric Kripke, J.J. Abrams and the cast were fairly forthcoming about what fans can expect both when "Revolution" returns to NBC on March 25 and beyond.

   That, of course, means that if you want to go in with a completely clean slate, you really don't want to read the information after the break.

So click through for 20 things we learned from the 'Revolution' PaleyFest Panel.

   20) Nobody on the "Revolution" writing staff cared about the Super Bowl. Remember that whole blackout thing during the Super Bowl and all of the "hilarious" jokes on your Twitter feed about "Revolution"? Well, it turns out that the shows writers weren't even watching the game. They were working on breaking story and one of the assistants read about it on social media. "We all had a moment like, 'Ah. I wish we were airing the next night,'" says Eric Kripke.

   19) They're overjoyed that they've been gone since November. You may miss "Revolution" and NBC may miss the show's ratings, but Kripke and company are giddy. Well, they're not really "giddy," but they're very good at putting a happy face on the break. "I'm very grateful for it, becuase I think creatively it really paid off and I believe very strongly that the second half of the season is better than the first," Kripke says. They said the same thing at TCA Press Tour in January, so it's gotta be true.

   18) Eric Kripke thinks he knows what the show did well in its first chunk of episodes. "I thought we did a pretty great job introducing the characters and these wonderful actors," Kripke says. "Character really has to come first in a show like this and it's more important than the genre and it's more important than the big concept, because stories come and go, but if you can make the characters stick, then I think you have a chance as some longevity and I think we did that well. We got to know them. We got to understand them. They got dimensionalized, they all sorta came to life, which is in a large part due to the incredible job that all of these incredibly handsome people on the stage have done."

7 Reasons to be Excited for Revolution's Return

Revolution Returns March 25
   It's been a while, Revolution. We've missed you. At least those of us who still remember the NBC hit after its seemingly endless four month hiatus. But now Revolution's return is only a few weeks away (March 25 at 10/9c) and the question is: does anyone still care? Creator Eric Kripke sure hopes so. "I think, honestly, it's an engine that's humming better than it ever has," he said. While Revolution was the biggest freshman hit of the fall season, many viewers were left lukewarm by the midseason finale. After taking this time off the air to reevaluate, Kripke now believes the show's return has what it takes to attract old fans, those still on the fence as well as a whole new audience. "We've learned from our mistakes and really sort of figured out what works and what doesn't work," he tells

Still hesitant to commit? Here are another seven reasons to be excited for Revolution's return:

1. Things are going to get moving — and fast! With Supernatural's Kripke and Lost's J.J. Abrams at the helm, viewers expected the same quick-paced storytelling we'd come to know from the pair's previous series. Unfortunately, Revolution's first 10 episodes — while a fun ride — moved at a snail's pace. (Ten episodes just to get one kid? Sheesh!) That's all going to change when the show returns. "It explodes into a big ball of fury after this," Billy Burke, who plays Miles, says. "I know [Kripke and Abrams] want to hasten, quicken the pace," Captain Neville's portrayer Giancarlo Esposito says, adding that they also plan to swiftly answer some of the series' biggest burning questions, including why the power went out!

2. There are going to be higher stakes (and an actual revolution) Now that Monroe has power — not to mention helicopters — gone are the days of a simple search-and-rescue mission. "It'll evolve into a really sizeable quest," Kripke says. "I think we really look at the first 10 episodes as the prologue to the story ... now it's time for the revolution to start." But things won't' be so easy for our heroes as they set out to restore power worldwide. "They've got crossbows and swords and [Monroe] has M16s and choppers, so they're woefully overwhelmed and outmanned and outgunned," the creator adds. To help even the playing field, Kripke hints that the rebels might look to outside forces for help. Georgia, perhaps?

3. We'll see a larger, complex world à la Game of Thrones "We've seen personal relationship struggles and personal revolutions happen, but we haven't seen how this particular power outage has affected the whole world. We're about to," Esposito teases. With the revolution finally beginning, everyone has their own role to play, roles that will take them outside of the Monroe Republic. "We'll see the Georgia Federation this season, we'll see the Plains Nation this season — and they're wildly different nations ... We really want this to evolve into kind of an American Game of Thrones." Kripke says. But with the world expanding, don't expect our recently reunited gang of misfits to stay together too long.
