The last time we saw Revolution's Charlie, Danny, Miles, Rachel, Google Guy, and Whatsherface, one of Monroe's recently recharged attack helicopters was ready to mow then down like an unkempt lawn. NBC has released a new trailer promoting the show's way, way, way far off return, and if it's any indication, whoever is flying that helicopter and manning its guns is really bad at their job.
The bulk of that promo is recapping what happened in the first half of the season, but it looks like when Revolution does return on March 25, we can expect some angsty rebellion from Nate/Jason, a mad dash for the power pendants, and a lot of people whipping their heads around with surprised looks on their faces!
The trailer was released as part of NBC's weekend session at the Television Critics Association press tour, in which producers J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke dressed up Revolution's four-month break (normally a death knell for serialized shows) with lipstick and glitter. The two said the time off has given the writers a chance to look at where they are, and the second half's repeat-free schedule favors a sped-up pace. But that's what we expected them to say, right?
