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.
Miles is now in command of the combined rebel forces and 200 Georgian troops. His capture of three southern outposts of the Monroe Republic draws the attention of Monroe, who reminds Jeremy that the militia started with a few small victories. Monroe, Jeremy, and several troops travel by helicopter to Miles’ and Monroe’s home town and round up all the citizens, including Emma (Annie Wersching), Miles’ former fiancée and Bass Monroe’s former lover, and Monroe sends a runner to Miles stating that he will execute everyone if Miles does not come alone and surrender. Although Miles sneaks away from camp at night, he is later followed by Charlie, Nora, Jim Hudson and some Georgian soldiers. In the battle that ensues, Emma tells Bass that she gave birth to his son while he and Miles were away in boot camp, but she is then killed by a Georgian officer trying to shoot Monroe. Miles shoots and kills the Georgian officer for killing Emma. Jeremy leads a wounded Monroe back to the helicopters. Meanwhile. Aaron and Rachel cross the Mississippi River into the Plains Nation on their way to The Tower. The pair stop in La Grange, Missouri , where Rachel tries to decipher the diagrams in Jane’s journal. She declines help from Aaron, who has two technical doctorates from MIT, and asks him instead to shop for supplies. While doing so, Aaron sees his wife, Priscilla whom he abandoned in the months right after the black-out, but she acts cold and distant. Priscilla tells Aaron that she has moved on, but Aaron believes her actions indicated that she was in trouble. He ultimately finds that she was being held by a bounty hunter and rescues her (with her help). She tells him that she has remarried and her family is in Texas; the Monroe Republic put a bounty on her after she killed an official while defending her eleven-year-old daughter. They say goodbye. President Foster decides to appoint a former militia officer who has defected to her side as her new liaison to Miles: Tom Neville.
Flashbacks: Teenage Miles, his fiancée Emma, and his friend Bass form a threesome in town just before Bass and Miles have to report after enlisting. While Miles is passed out drunk, Emma and Bass make love.
