After taking last week off, Eric Kripke’s “Revolution” returns with two new episodes, today’s “Sex and Drugs” and next week’s “The Children’s Crusade”. Check out our preview of both eps.
“Sex and Drugs” finds Miles and company going to an old friend looking for help to save Nora. Well, “old friend” is probably overstating it. It looks like Charlie ends up having to weigh an indecent proposal. Hopefully she’ll survive her encounter with “sex and drugs” as the same ol self-righteous Charlie we know and love.
In order to save Nora (Daniella Alonso) from her injury, Miles (Billy Burke) leads the gang on a detour to visit an old acquaintance of his for medical support, but they quickly find themselves in unfriendly territory. Aaron (Zak Orth) recalls his meek history as he looks back at his pre/post-blackout life, and Neville (Giancarlo Esposito) delivers Danny (Graham Rogers) to Monroe (David Lyons).
Next week’s episode, “The Children’s Crusade”, finds Charlie and Miles once again doing that whole, “It’s the right thing to do!” debate. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Charlie wins the argument. Again.
When Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) meets a boy who’s suffered a plight similar to her own, she relates and longs to help him and his young friends. First, she must convince Miles (Billy Burke). Meanwhile, Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell) grows weary of General Monroe (David Lyons) as she meets someone from her past. Zak Orth, JD Pardo, Maria Howell, Tim Guinee and Giancarlo Esposito also star.
Maybe we’ll finally learn how is it that Aaron is still overweight despite living 15 years in the Blackout. Seriously, how do you stay fat in the post-apocalypse?
