The Oct. 23 episode of NBC’s “Revolution” may have had slightly less bloodshed than other episodes this season, but there was still plenty of high-stakes drama! In an attempt to overthrow the town’s evil occupying force, Miles had to ally himself with a Texas Ranger he once tried to kill! Here’s what happened, in case you missed it!
The enemy of my enemy is my friend
Not only is Miles trying to team up with the Texas Ranger, but he’s also teaming up with Monroe! In order to win the support of the Texas Ranger captain in his fight against the official government, Miles teams up with Charlie and Monroe to find evidence about the government’s misdeeds.
The trio investigate a rail car that had previously contained prisoners who were marked for death, but the car had been cleaned of all evidence. The three walk right into an ambush, but manage to turn the tables and capture a government man they can use to make their case to the Ranger.
Tom Neville’s discovery
While working on a security detail for Madame Secretary herself, Tom has to fight off a bunch of her attackers. She gets injured, and Tom considers leaving her for dead…until she reveals that Tom’s son Jason has been taken to one of the “reprogramming” camps! Tom saves the Secretary’s life in exchange for the info about his son.
Seriously, Aaron is some sort of wizard now
After making a joke a few episodes back that he wasn’t Harry Potter, Aaron does kind of seem to be some sort of wizard now. He’s got crazy magic firefly powers that allow him to set people on fire!
Answers about Aaron’s powers aren’t forthcoming, but a flashback shows how Aaron got together with Cynthia. Turns out Aaron first used his crazy firestarter powers on Cynthia’s cheating, low-life husband Carl several months back.
A thrilling conclusion
In addition to being a firestarter, Aaron also has visions. One vision shows him Charlie, Miles, and Monroe hiding in a barn. Meanwhile, the government prisoner that the trio kidnapped kills himself using a poison tooth that was filled with cyanide.
Monroe goes a bit nutso, and just kills the Texas Ranger. His justification? Killing the ranger and pinning the blame on the government accomplishes the same goal of getting the Texans to “go nuts.” Looks like things are going to get even more heated in next week’s episode!
“Revolution” airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC.
