Revolution has had some good banter recently, but it seems sharp and often funny here. There's some good one liners too such as "you woke us up", "who is this @$$ clown you're with", and "all you can do is act like an idiot" to just name a few.
"Everyone Says I Love You" opens as Miles, Charlie, and Rachel prepare some kind of "Hail Mary" offense against "the bunker" to rescue Aaron and Rachel's dad. But the expected bombastic three against a hundred and three isn't required because all present US forces are laying passed out as if dead. Chalk another one up for Aaron's fight or flight relationship to the nanobots. Miles and company are too late as Aaron has already left the building necessitating finding Aaron before the other US forces and Horn do.
As Miles, Charlie, and Rachel try to find Aaron the US troops find them. After a quick fight where they're the victors they find themselves immediately in a no-win situation. Monroe to the rescue in a very Batman like way. Now, the unstoppable foursome are back! Of course, Horn would just as soon "kill 'em all" excepting Aaron which means some more bad times are sure to occur.
Oh yeah, don't forget Tom and his boy, using the leverage they now have with the dude that killed his wife (remember her, the president's arm in the field who was amending her agenda), Tom is finally a US soldier without a leach. He's on a train going to the capital. His plans to kill the president are foremost, until he gets a big surprise. His wife is still alive. She's not only survived the holocaust, but she's also another man's wife now. He's obviously something, maybe even the president himself? She sees Tom, excuses herself and makes it clear to Tom she still loves him and if they both bide their time they'll get whatever it is they've always wanted. Since nothing is as it seems it's hard to know if her loyalty to Tom is true at this point making for good tension. She's Tom's soft spot, that is if he has any humanity at all which remains to be seen.
And now for the quantum shift, Aaron wakes up post escape in a library not knowing how he got there. A young boy appears saying he lives where ever it is they're at, but It ain't no child as the boy is a manifestation of the nanobots which Aaron has an innate bond to. Aaron realizes he is the only one who can see this and in typical Aaron fashion denounces the killing the bots have several times enacted. He goes further demanding they leave him alone. Talk about biting the hand that saves, this is really Aaron in cloud cuckoo land because Aaron has been repeatedly saved by actions taken by the bots. It doesn't take long for Horn to confront Aaron with a moral dilema whereby Aaron learns his less than prudent instructions to be left alone have grave consequences. Aaron's ire was unbridled when Horn shoots and kills his girlfriend. He calls back the child/bots who appear once more telling him his thoughts are without clear cut meaning or even sense. Nonetheless, Aarons commands the bots to kill Horn, then quickly goes all Metallica and barks: "kill 'em all". The bots respond with Hprn and all US forces in the building igniting in flames. Aaron pleads for the bots to go ahead and revive his dead love, but, strangely, the child/bot says we'll leave you alone instead. Assuming there's a lesson in this is not hard, knowing how to glean the message intended, however, is left open.
There's so much happening in this episode it's hard to digest it all in one sitting. The story here is moving so fast with such intensity it's hard to not be engaged and even harder to guess what is next. Whatever that is, this is a very interesting episode that really worked on all of the, at least, three story lines simultaneously playing out. A big ride for everyone here with lots of aftermath about to spill over next week. Truly about as good as a masterfully played season finale is and it's just mid-season! Oh, before I forget, a big revelation from Miles with a flashback to his earlier rejection of Rachel. I guess that's where the title come's from??? Anyway, the other stuff had more relevance it would seem, but Rachel with bangs, those cheek bones and big blue eyes just worked. Uh, sorry Miles, but you're the idiot.
