Revolution Review Episode 1x15 Home

Review - Episode 1x15 Home

Episode 1x15 Review: "Home"

by SpoilerTV

   Tonight’s episode of Revolution, “Home,” was written by David Rambo and directed by Jon Cassar. Rambo also wrote the episode “Sex and Drugs” which featured flashbacks of Aaron (Zac Orth) and his wife Priscilla (Maureen Sebastian) who are reunited in this episode. In fact, the episode revolves around several romantically entangled reunions. The episode, while called “Home,” actually proves the old saying that you can’t go home again.

   As the episode opens, it’s clear that the war is taking its toll on both Miles (Billy Burke) and Monroe (David Lyons). Miles is clearly weary and disturbed by returning to the battlefield, and Monroe is increasingly paranoid and obsessed with killing Miles. Neither are relishing being "home" on the battlefield. It was nice to see Mark Pellegrino back as Jeremy Baker who seems to be Monroe’s new second in command. Pellegrino delivers his usual great performance. Baker, who has likely known Miles and Monroe the longest as they rescued him on the road as seen in the flashbacks in “No Quarter,” seems to know how to handle the increasingly volatile Monroe. Baker keeps an easy smile and makes his suggestions clearly suggestions so as not to set Monroe off.

   Meanwhile, Miles is dealing with his own staff problems in the form of Captain Dixon (Joe Knezevich) who is the liaison for the Georgia troops. Neither Miles nor Hudson (Malik Yoba) like Dixon. Their instincts are justified by the end of the episode when he disobeys Miles’ direct order and shoots Emma (Annie Wersching) hoping to kill Monroe. Miles then kills Dixon, nicely setting us up for the return of Tom Neville (Giancarlo Esposito) as President Foster’s (Leslie Hope) new liaison. And I can’t wait to see Miles’ face when Neville shows up to join the team!!

Revolution Episode Review: 1x14 "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia"

Revolution Episode 1x14

Review Episode 1x14

by SpoilerTV

This week’s episode of Revolution, “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia,” was originally supposed to air last week, but due to the Boston Marathon bombings, it was quickly pulled from the schedule and delayed until this week. Given the scenes of terrified citizens fleeing from a potential terrorist attack, I applaud the people who made the decision. It’s pointed out several times that the bomber wants to try for the “maximum innocent casualties.” Even a week later, those scenes very much resonated with me, and I’m sure with many watching.

The episode was written by Paul Grellong and directed by Nick Copus. Grellong again delivers an action packed episode and flashbacks that help to flesh out Miles’ back story this time. Copus is new to Revolution but has turned in episodes of both Arrow and Supernatural this year. He brings a great sense of timing and delivers some really emotional scenes and some great action sequences. I particularly liked the fight sequence in tight quarters between Miles (Billy Burke) and Alec (Dayo Okeniyi).

The episode begins with Monroe (David Lyons) learning that the Nevilles have snuck out of town and that their son has been seen alive. Monroe is clearly becoming paranoid and kills the Captain who bears the bad news to him because he was Neville's aide. Monroe also looks to be finding solace in alcohol. I hope that this is not the beginning of the end for Monroe as I’ve very much enjoyed Lyons. I’m still hoping they’ve got more for him to do other than simply unraveling and that we’ll see him reunited with Miles (Billy Burke) in flashbacks and in ‘present’ day.

Burke gives a wonderful performance in the episode as Miles is faced with one of the people he betrayed – a young soldier whom he mentored and considered a son. Miles trained Alec and gave Alec the knife his grandfather gave to his father who gave it to him. In flashback, we see that Miles had to sacrifice Alec to prevent a war. Alec botched an assassination attempt, and therefore, Miles has to give them Alec to placate them. Alec feels betrayed as he expected Miles to protect him. Ultimately, Alec feels even more betrayed because when he finally did return to the Republic, Miles had left, making Alec feel like his sacrifice had been for nothing. Ironically, it is Miles’ family knife with which he once again must sacrifice Alec for the greater good – to stop the detonating of the nuclear device.

Review of Episode 13 "The Song Remains The Same"

Review by TVLine

Monday’s Revolution finally revealed what caused the power to go out 15 years ago, and the answer is: Tiny, tiny, tiny computers?

Rachel shows Aaron a sketch of a design involving a very small circular object with extending arms. Each one is the size of a virus, and they’re everywhere, even in the air they’re breathing at that moment. There’s a couple hundred quadrillion of these things floating around out there with two programmed commands: To absorb electricity and to replicate. One day, something went wrong in the tower and they started reproducing out of control.

And there you have it.

Elsewhere, Monroe gives Neville a mission to retrieve something very important. But before he leaves, Neville exchanges some name-calling with Randall (Randall: “Your record represents a staggering level of incompetence.” Neville: “You’re just a civilian with a smug smile and a cheap suit.”) The officer ends up proving Randall right though when he lets himself get hijacked by Miles and the rebels on the road while joyfully listening to Lionel Richie. Rachel wants to kill Neville for what he did to Ben and Danny, but Miles plans to beat him, let him heal and then beat him again until he tells them where he was headed.

Interview with JD Pardo and Tracy Spiridakos

Revolution - Jason and Charlie

   Last week's Revolution saw Jason finally take a stand against his father and do the right thing. But does that mean he's a rebel now that he's abandoned the militia? The war is only just getting started, and while Jason might not believe in the slaughter of innocent families, it's unlikely that he supports killing his own family either. So can Jason be trusted?

"His intensions are good, but is he gonna screw you over again? Who knows?" JD Pardo, who plays the former soldier, tells "But I believe that what Charlie brings out of Jason is a different side. She forces him to see things from her perspective and it doesn't match up with what he's being told, so there's a struggle ahead."

Even if Jason does decide to take up arms against his father, he still needs to convince Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) before he can join her Scooby Gang. When asked whether or not her character can trust Jason, Spiridakos kept it blunt: "Why should she?"

"He's saved her life, yes, but he's also put her in harm's way and done things to kind of mess things up for them a few times," Spiridakos continues, adding that while Jason will be around more, she's unsure if that's a good or bad thing. "She's been through so many times where she's trusted the wrong person and gotten kind of scolded for it. You've got to tread lightly."

Spiridakos is not kidding about Charlie being a little too trustworthy (see: Ray Kinsey, Maya Clayton). Although her hesitation to trust Jason is understandable, he is more than worthy of an exception. Even when Jason was in the militia, Pardo explains, he always thought that he was doing the right thing. That is, until the militia butchered entire rebel camps.

But while Jason's unwavering desire to do good has currently alienated him from his family, Pardo is simply happy that Jason's finally making his own decisions. "Let's say he doesn't choose the rebels. He doesn't choose Monroe. Let's say he's independent. That's great. As long as he's his own man," Pardo says. "Live and die by your own choices."

Pardo may be proud of Jason's autonomy, but it has come at a cost for the star. "I think that as an actor I've walked away from the set frustrated, not feeling like I have a group," he says. "Like, where do I fit in? How do I fit in? Then it took me a second to realize, 'Oh, it's OK because that's how the character feels.'

"It is a lonely place," he continues. "[Jason's] loyal to a father that sees right through him and he wants to be with the girl, but there's no trust there. Where do you go?"

What do you think Jason should do? Do you think Charlie should trust him? Sound off in the comments below!

Review of Episode 1x12 - "Ghosts"

Revolution Episode 1x12 Ghosts

Review by SpoilerTV

   This week’s solid episode of Revolution, “Ghosts,” was written by the team of David Rambo and Melissa Glenn who also wrote a solid episode in “Ties that Bind.” Once again, the story deals with family. Most of the characters are dealing with a loss and fragmentation of their family. The episode was directed by Miguel Sapochnik whose credits include another JJ Abrams’ show: Fringe. Sapochnik’s use of tight focus and light and shadow in the first scene between Monroe (David Lyons) and Flynn (Colm Feore) is particularly effective in being evocative of the cat and mouse game the characters are playing as they vie for dominance in their relationship. There is also a beautiful transition between a slow motion shot of Flynn walking in the present to a regular speed shot of him walking in the past.

   All the characters are still reeling from Danny’s (Graham Rogers) death, and Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell), Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos), and Miles (Billy Burke) each deal with his death in their own destructive way. While many viewers felt cheated that the entire first half of the season was about saving Danny only to kill him, his death is an important catalyst going forward. It also is in keeping with a precedent that Kripke began in Supernatural when the entire first season was about finding John only to have him die in the season two premiere. It’s also a device used by Abrams in Lost when Boone survives the plane crash only to be killed relatively shortly thereafter.

   Danny’s death, perhaps most importantly, really causes Miles to commit to helping the rebels and he embarks on a mission to gather all his own former senior officers, starting with Jim Hudson (Malik Yoba). Going forward, this supplies us with at least a few episodes that will revolve around the quest to build Miles’ special force and has the potential to supply us with a number of interesting characters going forward. When Nora (Daniella Alonso) tries to reach out to him about Danny’s death, he tells her, “I’m fighting for your stupid rebels, what more do you want from me?” He’s committed to getting revenge for Danny’s death as opposed to the rebels themselves.
