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.
Aaron wakes up after being dead for hours. Rachel and Gene discover that he’s alive, much to their shock. Aaron begins to believe that the nanites were responsible for bringing him back to life. Meanwhile, Miles is held captive by Titus Andover and his tribe members. The holding area contains a red door through which prisoners are taken and do not return. The town discovers that the sheriff is dead and Miles is being held captive. Rachel tries to organise a rescue for Miles, but no one agrees to join her, eventually leading her to try to rescue him on her own. While Rachel is leaving town, Gene and the others join her. Miles tries to escape, but gets caught instead. He is brought before Titus Andover who, after revealing his history, smashes Miles’ right hand with a hammer. It is revealed later that a key member of Titus’ group is a Patriot. Back at Willoughby, Aaron reveals to his girlfriend Cynthia the truth behind the blackout and his resurrection. Meanwhile, Charlie is captured by Monroe’s abductors and discovers they are contracted by the Patriots. The lead, Adam, notes that the Patriots need Monroe alive. The pair let Charlie go and ride off with Monroe, only to have Monroe escape. Charlie manages to save Adam but not his partner. In Savannah, Neville organises an assassination attempt on Allenford, but turns on the would-be assassin to further his goal of infiltrating the Patriots. At the tent, Allenford allows Neville to join the Patriots. The episode closes as Miles is brought behind the red door where Titus is next to a sick woman who is receiving a blood transfusion from a dead man lying on a table nearby.
Flashback: During the incident at the Tower, Miles, Charlie, Rachel and Aaron try to stop the nuclear missiles from hitting Atlanta and Philadelphia, but fail when the computer crashes. Neville and the Monroe Militia burst in and order them to surrender, but the lights go out. Then the room begins to explode.
