Revolution Spoilers: Major Reveal to Come

at . Comments

The cast and crew of Revolution were featured last night at PaleyFest in Los Angeles, and producer Eric Kripke wasted no time dropping a major bomb at the outset of the show's panel discussion:

"We reveal why the power went out - and we do it early," Kripke said of the hit series' return.

The major reveal will take place on Episode 13, scheduled for April 8, and “it opens the door to a bigger story and a bigger mystery,” Kripke added, saying the drama will feature a “much more epic scope” as the fight against Monroe really grows more intense.

“The fights get bigger, the emotion gets more fraught."

Kripke also previewed an abundance of answers, telling those in attendance:

“Every question that has been asked, at least certainly in the first 10 [episodes], we answer it before the end of the season - and still allow for a lot more questions and interesting developments to happen."

Such as?

Why did Rachel slap Miles? What is their history about? Where’s Grace right now? What’s Randall want from her? What turned Miles and Monroe against each other?

Among other developments on the way:

  • Leslie Hope’s President Foster is a “badass," Kripke said. "She’s really steely and strong and has her own management style that is quite different from Monroe’s.”
  • Monroe is a "broken man," said David Lyons. "And the question is: Can he be mended? I’m not sure.”
  • Charlie and Rachel will clash, with the former having "a lot of anger and resentment" toward her parent for leaving her behind, said actress Tracy Spiridakos.
  • There will be a confrontation between Nate and Neville.

Revolution Season 1 finally resumes on Monday, March 25.

I watched it. Pretty awesome, feel sorry for both Rachael and Charlie. And of course Randall would have to be the one who caused all this. Like a crazy experiment.


Can't wait ofthe show to return the second half looks absolutely amazing and looks like the show will be moving a lot faster which is good and we'll get a lot of answers to the big questions we've been asking. Just something I've been wondering for a while do you think Maggie will be brought up again like Charlie telling Danny or something because I don't think he knows since they never got a chance to have a real conversation and it seems he didn't know they came after until the train and she was already dead then so he wouldn't of known she came with them.
