Revolution is an American post-apocalyptic science fiction television series that ran from 17 September 2012 to 21 May 2014, when it was cancelled by NBC. The show takes place in the post-apocalyptic near-future of the year 2027, 15 years after the start of a worldwide, permanent electrical-power blackout in 2012.
Now fleeing from the Monroe Militia, Nora leads the gang back to camp, only to find many of the fighters are injured from an earlier trap set by the militia. Besieged, they try to dig a tunnel to escape, while the sniper rifle Nora stole keeps the militia at bay, but the tunnel finally collapses. They capture the militia’s commander, Jeremy, to use as leverage, but Jeremy tells the rebels that his troops are under orders not to deal for him because of Miles’ presence, and then, realising that the others didn’t know Miles’ history, tells them that Miles was the founder and former commanding general of the Monroe Militia. Miles gives himself up to Jeremy in exchange for the militia allowing Charlie, Nora and the others to get away, but Charlie and Nora later ambush the Militia on a bridge to rescue Miles. Meanwhile, Aaron and Maggie go in search of the address that Ben gave Aaron, which turns out to be Grace’s, but find her house empty. Aaron finds it strange that she still had a computer, but he can’t make it work. Later, the pendant powers up unexpectedly, making Grace’s CD player and Maggie’s iPhone work for a moment, but then everything goes dark again. Finally, Danny gets physically abused by a soldier bent on revenge, but manages to even things out.
Flashbacks: Some months after the blackout, Miles and Monroe go AWOL in search of Miles’ family. While on the road, they find a couple who have been killed and some time later they come across two men who are attacking a man. Miles realises they are the same men who killed the couple and kills them, much to Monroe’s shock. The man they rescued is Jeremy.
