  • So sad that they canceled the show

    8.5
    I love this episode, it was a perfect ending for a season.

    To all people complaining about this not being a good ending for the show, this was not intended as an end.

    Some people seems to don't understand that when they wrote, filmed and edited this episodes they didn't know about the cancellation of the show. This was probably shot months if not one year before the network decide to cancel the show.

    Unfortunately networks cancel a lot of good shows during the year, this maybe wasn't the best one but they kept worst show instead of giving another chance to Revolution.

    At the end, I'll miss Revolution and this goes to my infinite list of favorites show that got cancelled instead of others not so great shows.moreless
  • This is goodbye

    9.0
    So we are now saying goodbye to this show. They kind of wrapped up the patriot storyline in this episode. I thought it felt a bit rushed after a whole season of our little band of rebels not making any progress at all in their fight against the Patriots, they suddenly get the upper hand and Texas in their side ( they never mentioned before that Texas has that much more troops than the Patriots and will surely win an armed conflict with them). It was nice that they managed to show Monroe doing the right thing, even if it meant loosing his son in the process. I think when Connor says that he is his family and not Miles and that is the reason that they should stick together, he doesn't quite see that Miles is essentially a brother to Monroe.

    Nice trick with the president , when I really thought that they now all get killed, and it turns out that it was a trick to get the president to confess and that the "patriot soldiers" really were the rebels. I didn't see that coming.

    Nice scene where Charlie tells Miles that she is all for him making a life with her mother, even though I didn't get the feeling that they exactly kept their relationship a secret ( which she seemed to think). I always thought that Charlie knew, as did Monroe and Rachel's father.

    I always thought that the real danger would be coming from the nano and couldn't quite understand why Aaron and Rachel didn't seem to bother telling the others about the development concerning the nano ( they also seemed to think that getting Priscilla free of the nano was a victory). This was probably supposed to be the set up for the next season. It would have been interesting to see what they would have made with this. As pistols, swords and explosives wouldn't do anything to the nanos I just wonder how they would brought this kind of action into the further future story development. I can only imagine that this would have retooled the show and made it something different ( an example would be the epitath episodes at the end of season 1 and 2 of Dollhouse).moreless
  • Spectacular episode, although sadly it left the door wide open.

    If there was a Season 3 coming, this would have been the perfect conclusion to Season 2 and the perfect premise to Season 3. Sadly that's not the case, and I'll really miss this very underrated show.



    So much happened today - I loved the way they got Texas on their side and tha t was really ingenious. The nano storyline was promising but sadly it will never hit full potential aftet a brilliant set-up for a nonexistent Season 3...



    I just liked everything about this episode - if there was a Season3 on its way, this was the perfect cliffhanger... Ugh, but since there is no Season 3, we finish with a whole lot ore uquestions than answers...



    I'll miss Revolution a lot...moreless
  • Deserved to be canceled

    5.0
    If you take out all the identical gun/sword fights and "We're gonna go rescue X but oh noes! now we got captured and they have to come rescue us!" (rinse and repeat), all the episodes of this show would be like 10 minutes long. All the most interesting stuff about the nano tech and how/why the power went out was such a small part and nearly forgotten.



    Should have been a promising show but lazy execution and unsatisfying ending.moreless
  • This Was Not a Proper Ending.

    10
    So lets start with Priscilla, even though the Nano Tech left Priscilla, she was out for most of this episode until the end when she tells Aaron something (which i will mention at the end). Miles, Monroe and the A Team eventually stop the mustard gas from killing everyone and they evacuate everybody from the building after President Davis gave his speech. The one thing i dont understand is Carver was in the building when Miles came in and told everyone to get outside, the next time i see him, he is with Truman and President Davis hiding. Then Truman kills Carver and some soldiers, shoots himself in the arm and the next thing we see is Truman, President Davis giving a speech basically saying Miles and Monroe and Californian collaborators tried to wipe Willoughby off the map and declares war. Back at base camp, Miles comes up with this idea to kidnap Davis and Monroe goes along with the plan and it really does work. Neville tells Conner and Scanlon that he is going to kill Davis for what he did to his family, the patriots catch up with Miles and Monroe and to cut a very long story short Monroe makes it back to base camp with Davis and General Blanchard of Austin Texas is the there and takes Davis back with him. Neville and Conner are locked in a shack together courtesy of Monroe, Priscilla wakes up and tells Aaron that the Nano Technology wants to control everybody like mindless automatons, the Nano Tech does pay a visit to Truman, Davis and Neville. Apparently they already have taken control over people in Bradbury, Idaho. This is how you end a show NBC. Not Happy.moreless
