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.


Monroe and the others debate what to do about the Patriots, especially after their remaining safe house is compromised with the help of the cadet Miles allowed to go free. Gene tries to convince local bar operator, Marion, to get the townspeople to side with them. Meanwhile, Monroe and the others have found more of Duncan’s men, and one of Duncan’s tribe members reveals that Duncan was killed by the Patriots, because the Patriots are hunting down war clans. With Duncan’s men backing him, Monroe moves to attack the re-education camp and kills every patriot soldier there. Meanwhile, Neville and Jason are captured by Doyle, who knows that Neville is going to kill him. When Monroe attacks the camp, Neville kills Doyle and escapes with Jason. At the bar, just as Marion is being convinced by Gene that the patriots have lied, Truman arrives for dinner (he and Marion are engaged). Marion is horrified by the killing spree at the camp, and tells Truman about Miles and Gene managing to escape. After translating an Arabic journal, the group learns that Patriot cadets will be used to attack Austin, seat of the Texas government.
