Recap and Review

*Warning Contains Spoilers*

Revolution fans (me included) are begging the network executives to renew this show for a third season. It’s teetering on the line. I can’t see why the ratings are so low. I don’t know why fans haven’t received a confirmation on renewal, yet. I want to know my show is safe, so some of my tension will be removed as I watch these upcoming episodes. They’re going to be tense enough. << UPDATE: We know it’s been canceled.  We are pissed.  Check out my Twitter to see the conversation. >>

This show takes my breath away. It’s action-packed, fun, exciting, confusing and wonderful. Tonight’s episode proves that.

Quick Summary: Miles is finally found. Truman finally grows a backbone, but this is bad for Miles, Monroe and company. Monroe and Miles appear to grow closer and Miles pulls away from Rachel.

What I don’t like about this episode is the dialogue between Monroe and everyone else. It just doesn’t seem like what I’m used to. I don’t know if it’s because he’s angrier than normal or what, but I don’t like it.

What I do like: everything else I especially like the intensity between everyone. These characters have been through hell and back, more than once. Miles recovers from near death experiences at least three times, including in this episode. However, he doesn’t get to fully recover because the Patriots come with mustard gas.

The Patriots gas Miles, Monroe and crew, forcing them to hide in a tanker until the gas clears out. Most of the men didn’t make it, so the survivors were looking for some payback. Monroe decides they’ll steal some of the gas, no matter the consequences, to take out as many Patriots they can.

However, Rachel seems to have her own plan, and with the help of Charlie and Gene, she succeeds. Miles betrays Monroe but I can’t help but be happy he did. As Miles says, “We are doing this his way. I have to believe that is the best way.”

Of course this does not set well with Monroe. He goes with Connor to meet up with Tom.

Things we learn in this episode are interesting. Priscilla, all hyped on Nano, is scary, creepy, and dangerous. She can control people. I don’t like this Nano experimenting thing. It freaks me out in ways I haven’t been in a long time, by a TV show. This is why the show is creepy and exciting.

I’m watching. Are you?
