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, Rachel, and Charlie move to rescue Aaron. They discover all the soldiers knocked out and Aaron and Cynthia gone. Following their escape route, they look in a fog-shrouded forest, with the Patriots searching too. They are eventually joined by Monroe and follow the trail to a local high school. At the high school, Aaron wakes up next to Cynthia, alive and apparently healed from her injuries. He discovers a small boy who says he lives there. After Cynthia wakes up, she notes that she does not see the boy and it becomes apparent that the boy is a manifestation of the nanotech. The nanotech says it has been helping Aaron because he woke it up. The Patriots arrive at the high school just before Miles and company. A competing search begins for Aaron. Miles collapses from his arm infection and confesses his love for Rachel as Patriots burst in. Neville boards a train bound for Washington D.C. with Jason and Commander Allenford. They are headed for the White House. His wife boards the train too, although she is newly married. After reuniting, they conspire to greater political ambitions. Horn discovers Aaron fleeing and holds him at gunpoint. After Horn shoots dead Cynthia, the boy reappears. In his grief, Aaron requests that the boy kill all the Patriots in the school. He complies, but wonders why Aaron did not ask for Cynthia to be healed. The boy is confused and vanishes, leaving Cynthia dead and Aaron alone.
Flashback: Six years before the blackout, Miles arrives at an airport, and is met by Rachel. Before he departs, Rachel offers to leave her husband for Miles, but Miles says to Rachel that they can’t keep doing this. Rachel tells Miles to love her, but Miles, who wants Rachel to be with her family, tells her that he doesn’t love her. Miles apologises and heads into the terminal, leaving Rachel devastated.
