Fans of the NBC series will be thrilled to hear Revolution is returning after a four-month hiatus. TV Guide has put together a mini-cheatsheet for viewers with what to expect and reminders concerning the show’s current atmosphere.
1. The Blackout, revealed: “We reveal why the power went out and we do it early,” executive producer Eric Kripke said, noting that it will open the door to a bigger mystery. “It will be fun to see the audience’s reaction to it.” Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell) actually knows the real reason, so, “there’s no reason she wouldn’t say it.”
2. The world expands: As Monroe’s power grows, so too will the world of Revolution as the group may need to rely on other territories in the fight against Monroe. “This revolution against Monroe really begins,” Kripke says. “[They] all join together to take on this evil tyrant.” But executive producer Jon Favreau noted that loyalties with these other federations may change as power shifts hands. Among the new faces is Leslie Hope’s President Foster, the leader of the Georgia Federation. “She’s badass,” Kripke said. “She’s really steely and strong and has her own management style that is quite different than Monroe’s.”
3. Charlie’s not a kid anymore: Even though Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) has been reunited with her mother Rachel and brother Danny (Graham Rogers), she will continue to fight for the rebellion, which will put her at odds with herself. “Is she able to keep her humanity through it all?” Spiridakos said. She may find help in that department in Jason (J.D. Pardo), who Spiridakos noted will be around the rebels more in the second half of the season.
