Revolution (2013): S01E14 – The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia


Introduction

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.

Outline

Paranoia strikes Monroe deeply as Neville disappears and word reaches him that Jason is with the rebels. Miles, Charlie and Nora infiltrate the Georgia Federation to chase the nuclear device, which Monroe has had Miles’ former protege Alec plant in Atlanta, the federation’s capital. During a battle, Alec tells Charlie to ask Miles what he did to Rachel. Monroe uses a helicopter to drop leaflets over Atlanta demanding unconditional surrender. Miles is captured by Georgia police and turns out to have had a personal relationship with Georgia Federation president Kelly Foster, who ultimately frees him to find Alec. Miles kills Alec just as Monroe orders Alec to detonate the nuke. Meanwhile, Rachel and Aaron locate her former co-worker Dr. Jane Warren (Kate Burton), who reveals that the nanites kept Danny and keep her partner Beth alive through their cancer-eating abilities. Jane believes that if Rachel shuts down the nanites and restore the power, Beth will die. However, at Beth’s urging, she provides Rachel with her technical journal, which has information that will permit Rachel to turn off the nanites if she reaches the Tower. After the nuclear weapon has been disarmed, Charlie asks Miles about Rachel, and Miles answers only that he hurts anyone close to him. President Foster declares war on the Monroe Republic and offers Miles command of an army made up of 200 soldiers from the Georgia Federation, to help the rebels open a second front within the Monroe Republic.

Flashbacks: Seven years after the blackout, Miles gives Alec a “lucky” knife from Miles’ father and grandfather, which he tells Alec to pass along to his own son, when he has one. Nine years after the blackout, Miles has his troops turn Alec over to Texas after Alec’s attempt to assassinate the Texas leader failed and the leader could identify Alec.
