Revolution Series Finale Review: Keeping the Lights On for No Reason at All

Revolution S02E22: "Declaration of Independence"


Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

No no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no.

Well, yes. It's over, folks. Revolution ended its two-season run in denial with "Declaration of Independence," the Season 2 finale that ended up being a series finale after NBC canceled the show on May 10, just 11 days ago. Given the typical TV production cycle, it was already too late to course-correct and make "Declaration of Independence" a proper season-ender. So creator Eric Kripke and his writing staff obviously penned the Season 2 finale on a wave of optimism, with hope that the series would earn a third season, because "Declaration of Independence" was left wide open with a clear idea of what Season 3 would've looked like (or as much of an idea that can come out of a Revolution writers' room).

This finale had to be a disappointment for everyone. For fans who've really enjoyed Revolution (bless you), "Declaration of Independence" meant untapped potential for what could have been. For viewers who stuck around just to get some answers, it was one last helping of the torture that Revolution has doled out on a regular basis. There was very little closure; just a wide shot of a town in Idaho powering up as the nano found a new home base from which to operate. 

It's actually kind of shocking that Revolution went into its Season 2 finale ready to set up a whole new chapter, given its ratings. Many people, even hacks like me, predicted the show would be canceled a long time ago, and it would've behooved Kripke to at least have a proper series finale in mind (think about the DVD sales!). It's easy to restart something that's supposedly finished, but it's impossible to properly end something that will never come back. I have no idea why Kripke didn't see that and at least give it a shot. 

As for the hour itself, it felt like a typical episode of Revolution with neck-snapping direction changes for little or no reason, shootouts where everyone who wasn't one of our heroes was apparently firing blanks, and the series' best element: unrequited man love between Miles and Monroe. 

The whole mustard gas plan that had been in the works for the last few episodes was completely shunned when Miles, Charlie, and Monroe foiled the attack by—what else?—shooting their way into a heavily guarded area with whatever magic bullet repellant they usually wear. That would have been bad enough on its own, but Ed Truman, one of the worst villains in television history, came up with a Plan B that involved shooting Texas president Carver and all of Carver's men all by himself, and then turning the gun on his own arm to make it look like Miles and Monroe had done the attacking. So instead of mustard-gasssing everyone, it was point-blank shooting, and in the end, the result was the same. The Patriots had their excuse to convince Texas to go to war with California, and then they would clean up the scraps and take the country for themselves. Or something like that. Honestly, it was really boring. 

I wasn't alone in seeing the entire ineffectiveness of this whole scenario; Monroe even said "that whole hero act was for nothing," before explaining that he sacrificed everything for nothing. You know, much like the Revolution viewer who showed up for this finale looking for closure after putting so many tiring hours into the show. 


From there, "Declaration of Independence" scurried to make something happen, and Miles came up with a plan to kidnap the president. It did actually happen, but the episode couldn't even bother to show it, instead letting Tom and his two lackeys stumble into a scene full of dead president-escorts and an empty carriage that once held the guy. There was some false tension about whether or not Monroe would show up at the rendezvous point with the president after the group had to split up, but he did. And that set up one of those "Let's make the bad guy confess!" scenarios so that the general of the Texas Rangers could hear President Davis's true plan and then break the treaty with the Patriots. It worked! But man, was it a lazy letdown. At least Rachel got to call President Davis a lying car salesman. 

As for the nano, well, that was lame, too. You know what I hate? When shows have some person under the influence of something that they just have to "wake up" from, forcing another character to scream, "Wake up! Wake up! I love you!" until something clicks and they snap out of it. That's what happened with Priscilla and her nano control. It doesn't matter how many flashes of images or kids with their eyes and mouths covered by skin we saw, they couldn't disguise what that was, which is one of the stupidest television devices ever. It's so overused that it should be legally banned. I don't care if Nano-Priscilla was shocked and it made her weaker—don't go down that "Wake up!" route. Next time, just shock her again and again until she falls apart. And how does something that controls electricity get hurt by electricity? Or not think to turn it off when it's getting electrocuted? Whatever, show! I throw my hands up. 


In the last moments, Priscilla talked about how the nano would find new hosts to do its bidding, which was to make us all run around in circles like a whirlpool of rats or something. And we saw the nano find some new hosts—President Davis, Truman, and Tom—and tell them to go to Idaho. Then we jumped over to Idaho and a town started to power up and people were already there? And that was the end. That's how Revolution ended. 

Revolution had its moments over the course of its two seasons, but the series never decided where it wanted to go or what it wanted to be. The Season 2 do-over worked initially, but a whole season dedicated to stopping the Patriots got boring by about Episode 6. The science-fiction portion of the series, which is the reason must of us started watching the show in the first place, was left to Aaron and his wacky adventures with nano manifestations of his dead girlfriends and ex-wives. If Revolution wanted to make its fans happy, Aaron should have kept setting people on fire with his mind. Some viewers may mourn the show's passing after this finale, but Revolution was dead a long time ago. 



POWER LINES

– The highlight of the evening was Miles entering the Willoughby building and telling everyone to "Run, you idiots!" A nice callback to when he said the same thing to Charlie back in Season 1.

– Wow, Tom's character got TOTALLY hosed. His arc this season was a complete mess.

– President Davis was basically George W. Bush, right?

– After all that, Texas can steamroll through the Patriots and save the day because they outnumber them four to one.

– How would you have ended Revolution?


What did you think of the ending? Will you miss the show?

The show was entertaining, it was too close for comfort for our governments practices. Rule by fear, as quoted by the lying salesman "Americans don't want the truth, Americans want to feel safe and they'll hand over control to anyone who'll give them that." So true about our society today. Gov't creates controlled chaos, they come in, clean it up and catch the "bad guy," and becomes our savior once again. We get to live the "American Dream." Too bad we don't have a real Miles or Monroe to expose the real "bad guys."

The show wasn't bad at all. Yeah the fights were corny and unrealistic but who cares, most shows are like that. It's amazing the shows that stay on air yet shows like this get cancelled, people have no taste. Jericho was another good show in this genre that got cancelled.

100% guarantee the people who watched the show and thought it was bad, immediately turned on honey boo boo afterwards.

I watched it but gave it because it got more ludicrous and stupid over time. I can assure you, I wasn't watching honey boo boo. I don't waste my time watching stupid crap, and that's pretty much all of what nbc universal has these days. Since it was last May, I was probably watching stuff that did not suck, which was AMC, HBO, FX, etc. Network tv just sucks.

My guess? The guys upstairs wanted something more climactic than a post-apocalyptic drama and thus, the nano was born. The writers finally folded in a desperate attempt to keep the show running at the end of season 2. Fear not viewers, there is a conclusion to this story going by the title of "The Matrix". It should satisfy your expectations, disappointment and all!

I think they could have easily taken this into a 3rd season. Writing for what was going to go on in Idaho should have been fun for them. I enjoyed the Nano's addition. It showed the whole man-made thing was evolving and leaving man behind. I would have liked to have seen that played out.

Let me first of say this, I'm glad I'm not the only one still thinking about this. On to my rant-ish comment. I was a BIG fan of Revolution in the beginning, yes I'll admit it. And the show at times had its good points just like any other show it was also filled with bad points as well. As the second season came around I fell into a "habit" of forgetting to watch 'Revolution' itself, or just not caring anymore. When the season finale of the first season was over I was pretty disappointed. How can a TV show keep itself running if it gives the whole main point of the background conflict to the show away in the first season? I'll be honest, yes, some shows have that capability of running that way like sit-coms, and other shows with really no conflict in the "plot". And then again other shows similar to 'Revoultion' excel at that also. But most shows of that matter don't set "one BIG conflict" to begin with. They have some background motivation behind the story, but if a conflict occurs they play it out...It seems 'Revolution' just kind of all together failed at making that happen. They sprung way too much at their viewers in very little time, and didn't draw the potential out at all. Which either left us mind-fucked, or on the edge of our seats. I went with the previous. I am sad cause it ended but not because it was a "good show", but because it had wasted potential.

Please bring back this show. It has a ton of potential. The actors work together really well. There was a storyline and it's perceptive of the apocalypse was different from many other shows. They took the idea of colonies, war, and politics and put it together in the modern world. Interesting. I hope another network picks it up.

I think that the fact that it kept you guessing in many ways than one was one of the great things about it. Granted I didn't watch the show when it was "in season" because I didn't know about it, I really am sad that it is done. Honestly more pissed off than anything. My Husband and I love this show and were really excited to watch it for season 3 but now can't..so it is very frustrating. But we are strong fans of the show and certainly hope that if it can ever get enough funding for even at least half of another season then it needs to do that.

This was a halfway decent show. It had some annoying plots to it such as characters who you never knew whose side they were on and the close ups on the action where you couldn't make heads or tales of who was shooting who from where and where they were escaping to. Could give us a long view of things and at least one constant villain. (Tho I probably like Monroe the best) I hated how they rescued Danny then killed him off right away. That was lame. And the direction they went with the Nano is season two was very lame and disappointing and it was really annoying how whiny Aaron was about it killing the people who were trying to kill him and his friends. And I won't even get into the head games aspect of the Nano. I'd hate to bore you about how boring that was. dispite all the the little nuisances I couldn't stop watching and would have liked to seen a third season or at least an actual ending of sorts. But nope, it just like NBC to say fuck it's viewers and leave us all hanging. Anyone remember Kings? I like that show as well and just as it began to get good, ohp- we're NBC- Cancel.

I'm not sure what all the vitriol is about, people. Would I have put this show in my top five? No. Was it good? Mostly. Did I have to put my reality in my back pocket a lot? Oh, so many times--but I wasn't watching for a dose of reality. I was watching because the basic premise of the show intrigued me. America without power. My biggest complaint was that they didn't address that subject enough. Initially I billed this show as a portion man's The Walking Dead. Everyone was reduced to the bare minimum, eeking out what they could for survival... without the gruesome zombies that probably wouldn't have made it past the network sensors anyway. But I came to love the sword fighting ingenuity and power games of those who had grasped power from the ashes. It disappointed me when guns and bullets became so readily available. But I stayed for the power-plays and the characters. Sebastian Monroe was probably my favorite. He just seemed so tortured all the time and I have to say that I'm a sucker for that kind of character. Maybe that makes me unsophisticated but thems the brakes. I'll miss the show but I'm not outraged it's gone either. Farewell, Revolution.

The show started out with a somewhat okay beginning...they are ALWAYS fighting, every important character (except danny pretty much) gets saved at the last possible second, episode after episode, and then of course you have mortal enemies changing sides to work with people they "hate", like a person changes their underwear. I ran out of shows to watch so I gave it a shot, watched both seasons just because I wanted to see what would happen...and nothing did. People who "love this show" and think its "the best ever"...I feel sorry for you. There are so many shows that are so much better than this...Continuum for example...that got a little hazy tho so they shut that down too...idiots.

The problem with the series is that for me, the writers squandered the promise of the premise, which was to establish and observe various interesting ways that people would live and behave in a world without power. I didn't mind the nanos, as there always had to be a way back to a world with power. But that should have been saved until later, developed slowly towards a series ending finale. Instead, the writers got bogged down into too much macho rivalry and tedious political conspiracies that you can tell they were making up as they went along.

The reason that interesting shows are cancelled and the crap vampire shows are still on the air, is due to the fact that the majority of the people with nielson ratings boxes are jobless morons. Yes, jobless, lazy, brainless morons that have nothing better to do with their time than watch mindless television. I mean really, why watch something that might have you thinking about actual technology, military advancement, or current events and how they mirror a show in some way. Science fiction shows have influenced technology for decades, But instead let's just imagine how awesome it would be to be a vampire or wolf, OR BEST OF ALL HYBRID!! F My Life!! Real people with real jobs and real lives don't have time these days to sit and watch the shows they want. They DVR TIVO or watch them online, leaving their children in the room with the ratings box to watch Pregnant teenagers, vampires, Kardshians and all the other stupid garbage,
P.S. Tell your kids to go outside, discover, play, invent!!

interesting?, yes, but not very imaginative like real scifi shows and vampire, wolf, hybrid, alien, witches, monsters, and supernatural shows which enhance your imagination rather than making more fuddy duddies which only watch boring dramas/crime dramas with no scifi elements at all. If you want boring everyday drama, read your friends ans celebs facebook walls and tweets. If you want crime drama, read the newspaper, watch the news, go to your local courthouse and police/sherrif offices and read the public records,

Honestly, I wasn't too sure about season 2 initially, with all the sci-fi stuff. The whole storyline with the nano kind of appeared out of nowhere. I know they showed Aaron's formula from MIT or whatever college he went to and that lady who could burn people and all that, but the transition from virtually no discussion of the nano to "Nano-mania" all of a sudden seemed pretty forced. Season 1, with the great character development and drama, seemed like a distant memory with the whole focus on the nano and dealing with the president. Too bad now there's no season 3 to try and tie things together.

That last serial sci-fi/fantasy show I can remember that ended gracefully and with some closure, despite early cancellation, was "Day Break" (2006) with Taye Diggs. Not sure if it was forethought by creator Paul Zbyszewski, or simply a bit of advance notice on the cancellation, but they managed to tie up the loose ends with a bow, while leaving a thread--just a small thread--to pick up on if it was renewed. Unfortunately, for every show like "Day Break" that gets it right, there are are a dozen that do it wrong: "Revolution", "FlashForward", "Jericho", "V" (old and new), etc. There oughta be a law, I tell ya!

Ignoring the unnecessary ad hominem attack, the original V was pretty good for the times in which it was produced -- if you grew up in those times, like I did, you wouldn't be shamed by having liked this show. Or the original BSG, for that matter. It (V) was its own thing, and it was different from all the other crap that was on -- mostly cheesy sitcoms, prime time soaps, and cheesy/gimmicky action and detective shows (can anybody say Knight Rider?). It was a cheesy era of television. V was at least a novel idea, and less cheesy than e.g. Jake and The Fatman. But hey, to each his own. I was talking about bringing a serial story line to a satisfying conclusion. I stand by my remarks.

Just like Jericho, anything that's good gets cancelled and all the stupid stuff stays on the air. I don't know who they have with Nielsen rating boxes but they must live on another planet because it clearly has NOT been what we want to see. But I guess I have to get to the bottom line; if the viewers have no say so, then clearly someone with deeper pockets than the general public is/are calling the shots. This series deserves a two-hour finally to wrap up the nano question and fix it. At least Firefly got that with Serenity.

It was apparent NBC didn't like this from the beginning. I loved the show~~never missed an episode. That said~~why do shows like "Falling Skies" and "Defiance" keep showing up year after year and they are just plain stupid!! This was NBC's apocolyptic series.....which seems to be all the rage today. The difference is Revolution had good-looking, talented people in the series. The others are just battling "skitters" in the dark or something! The other one (being from St. Louis) is just plain stupid I'll Agree the writers got boring but there was so much potential there. A lot of directions they could have gone in a third season.

Revolution was one of my favs but, when it comes to apacolyptic shows, it did'nt have the scifi elements that ppl want to see. There needs to be grousome, special effect, aliens, monsters etc to be a good scifi show and revolution didn't have any other than the necklaces. And no, the nanobots are real, and being used now in science so they are not scifi.

I think they should have just ended it with Monroe and the Rangers "ending the treaty"....that way Miles could have gotten the girl, Tom could have a son (Conner hates Monroe anyway), Priscilla/Ben could live happily ever after, and Monroe could have been given the rule of Texas (duh! their president was just assassinated, there is an opening now),. Wouldn't that have been a great panoramic scene....Monroe overlooking his new kingdom! I think that is how I will view the end....forget Idaho!
