By now, I think most people are familiar with Revolution‘s premise. Electricity all around the world goes out thanks to some as-yet-unknown cause and we flash-forward 15 years post-blackout to a dangerous new world. It‘s a high premise: does the show deliver? The Set-UpThe show does an interesting thing in setting the story 15 years after the blackout, thus avoiding all of the initial survival drama and dropping viewers into a new world with new rules. Another smart move on the part of the creators is in making a naïve young girl our main protagonist. By having Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) drive the plot, the audience gets to learn about the dangers and intricacies of this new world as Charlie discovers them. The drama surrounding Danny‘s (Graham Rogers) kidnapping is a bit of a cheat in getting the audience to connect with the characters right off the bat but it is something that will probably pay off in the long run and it makes a good introduction to the deadly militiamen.  Read more »
Now on Team Charlie, Miles (Billy Burke) sets out to find another fighter for the group and we are treated to the first of hopefully many twists in tonight‘s episode.Introducing NoraAs our gang is likely to face off against some highly trained soldier-types during their journey, Miles decides they should have at least one more skilled fighter on their side. Enter Miles‘ gal pal, Nora (Daniella Alonso). Apparently, she is very good at blowing things up and Miles thinks they will need her if they have any chance of rescuing Danny (Graham Rogers) from the militia. Like Miles, Nora is a pro at fighting and will clearly be an asset for our group, assuming she and Miles don‘t kill one another first.I imagine we will learn more about their seemingly complicated history in the weeks to come but for now, it is fun to watch them team up and take out militiamen in order to retrieve their very own sniper-riffle. A riffle Nora plans to hand over to the resistance movement, as she joined the rebels in her time apart from Miles. Oh, and she wants to be the one to take out General Monroe (David Lyons). That is lofty goal but I like Nora‘s can-do attitude, as well as her ease at putting Miles in his place so I‘m definitely rooting for her. Read more »
Last week, Team Charlie got a brand-new member in rebel fighter Nora (Daniella Alonso) but lost two when Aaron (Zak Orth) and Maggie were left behind. Will the two groups be reunited in tonight‘s episode?Charlie to the rescue The rebels do not seem to be fairing so well in their war against the militia, as Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) learns when Nora takes them back to the rebel base. Nora‘s rifle certainly makes a difference once the soldiers come calling but the rebels are still far out-matched. And yet, Charlie convinces Miles (Billy Burke) to help the rebels fight off the attacking militia. But the militia is just too powerful and Miles has to turn himself in to save Charlie, Nora and the rest of the rebels. Of course, Charlie and Nora simply rescue Miles a short time later, proving that even in this post-blackout world, you never leave a man behind. (Also, you should probably brush up on your archery skills.) Read more »

Last week, Team Charlie bonded with some rebel fighters and had fun with explosives, but this week they have resumed their search for Danny (Graham Rogers). Sadly, this episode marks the end for one character.Family TiesMiles (Billy Burke) confesses to Nora (Daniella Alonso) that he plans on leaving the group. He thinks they will all be better off without him, but Nora calls him out on running away before he can get attached. Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) overhears their conversation and is not pleased at the prospect of Miles‘ departure. Luckily -- or maybe unluckily from Charlie‘s POV -- Charlie gets kidnapped by a man pursuing the group for killing one of his attack dogs, and that puts Miles in protective mode. Once Charlie is safe, Miles promises he will stay.The developing dynamic between Miles and Charlie is one of the show‘s biggest draws, but I hope Miles is sincere about not leaving Charlie, even "for her own good," as his wavering on that front is rather annoying. Miles has seemingly been on his own for a while and is not used to anyone slowing him down or needing his protection, so he acts like he resents the others for that. But it is obvious he already cares about Charlie enough to risk his own life 10 times over, so I‘d say his days of not being attached are over, whether he admits it or not. Read more »
Revolution has been knocking it out of the park with its action, intrigue, and interpersonal relationships. It‘s the most watched new show of the season.

The group splits up to search for Danny and Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) runs into Captain Neville (Giancarlo Esposito). She tries to follow him but he catches her and Miles has to step in. Like everyone else in the Monroe militia, Miles has a history with Neville. (I know we are only on episode 5, but I really wish we would learn more about Miles‘ militia past and explore the connections he has with the show‘s villains.) Read more »

But in order to save Peter, Charlie has to go undercover in a conscription facility, also known as a place where kids are turned into militia soldiers.As with all of their plans, this one does not go well and Charlie has to be rescued along with Peter. In the end, Miles (Billy Burke) and Nora save the day and everyone is brought back safely.  Read more »

As the group prepares to head out again, Mia asks Nora to leave with her. At first, Nora refuses but after a chat with Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos), Nora decides to go be with her family. But before long, Nora realizes that Mia made a deal with the man in charge, Strausser. Mia hands over the pendant and tells Strausser where he can find the others. Nora is horrified by her sister‘s actions and abandons Mia to go back and save her friends. Nora manages to rescue the others from Strausser and Team Charlie remains in-tact. However, there might be some new tension in the ranks after that ‘goodbye‘ kiss Nora planted on Miles. Will those two ever get their timing right?  Read more »
