What I’m Watching: Revolution

Revolution: Season 1, Episode 9 “Kashmir” (F)

I think that I may have a needed as much reassurance from Miles as Charlie did that they’re going to get Danny back eventually. There’s no reason this trip to Philadelphia in search of the world’s blondest and most annoying teenager should have taken so long, and this entire episode had to take place in a tunnel. I enjoyed Aaron’s scientific reasoning that they must be losing air and that hallucination had to be the last stage before death, something everyone managed to avoid, even amid treachery and gunfire. I thought that the casting of Reed Diamond as a rebel was too good to be true, and of course he had to wait until he could only get off a few shots and injure pretty much no one to make his double-crossing move. It’s also silly that he as an undercover agent should have been hallucinating due to his equal loss of air yet managed not to be affected at all. The Miles-Monroe dream reunion was too much of a tease, and just means that we’ll have to wait longer for it to actually happen. It’s nice to see that Rachel has a backbone and was actually building a bomb, and she sure proved her feistiness by brutally stabbing her former friend, something no one else even tried to stop, to ensure that both she and Danny would be kept alive. I just hope that once Danny is no longer a prisoner, and maybe even Rachel too, this show can take on a new, more interesting direction.
