'Revolution' series finale: Let's talk about it!

WARNING: This post contains spoilers for the season 2 finale, “Declaration of Independence.” If you haven’t watched, proceed at your own risk.

To be completely honest, Revolution’s second season was what its first season should have been: dark, gritty, and edgy. I will say this, though — as much as the show had its ups and downs, it really did attempt to reinvent and revitalize itself by taking notice of what didn’t quite work during the first season (spoiler alert: pretty much everything.) Season two was a vast improvement over season one, the kind of growth that, if this was 15-20 years ago, would have been considered normal. And as much as Revolution was unlikely to get renewed, I really think it could have continued to improve if given the chance to have a third season.

But sadly, that’s not the case, which meant that tonight’s season finale was really a series finale. Let’s see what we ended up with. READ FULL STORY

Did 'Revolution' miss its chance for a 'Game of Thrones' moment?

Habitual baddie Sebastian Monroe was supposed to die on last night’s Revolution. But he probably didn’t. And that’s a kind of a shame.

You see, the previews for the episode seemed to hint at former militia leader Monroe’s demise at the hands of those mean Rangers. For someone who is a casual viewer like me, this tease upgraded the episode to Must Watch Live status. I had major doubts that they’d actually carry out the deed — it’s largely agreed upon that Monroe is one of the best parts of this rodeo — but I wanted to be sure I wouldn’t miss a really big moment.

'Revolution' star Elizabeth Mitchell takes the EW Pop Culture Personality Test -- VIDEO

Even as Revolution wraps its first season tonight (NBC, 10 p.m. ET), Elizabeth Mitchell still can’t believe the reception to the show. “Stephen King loves Revolution. Who the heck does that happen to?” she says. “He came as a guest into the editing room, and I couldn’t believe it. I’m a huge fan of his. I’m always amazed at the people who watch what I’m doing.” She hopes he, like other viewers, will enjoy the season finale’s payoff. “I think it’s enormously gratifying,” she says. She starts to say more, then stops herself. We’ll let her off the spoiler hook this time because she was willing to reveal what TV show she thinks should be remade (it involves an island!), who she wrote a fan letter to when she was young, and what her most prized and geekiest pop culture possessions are in our latest EW Pop Culture Personality Test. Watch it below. READ FULL STORY

'Revolution' react: All along the Tower

Revolution delivered an hour of intense TV for its penultimate episode of the season. “Children of Men” was an all-around superb episode for the show, but to me the highlights were the Rachel and Monroe scenes and learning more about the Tower. READ FULL STORY

'Revolution' react: Paranoia

Revolution presented its own dark take on the 1985 comedy Clue in last night’s episode, also called “Clue.” No multiple endings in this whodunnit, but there were multiple red herrings as Miles and co. tried to figure out who was offing their men on the mission to the Tower.

Who killed the Commander Ramsey and helicopter’s pilot? They’re refueling in the middle of nowhere, so it’s doubtful any local Plains Nation folk did it. Evidence at various moments points to John Sanborn (he did mysteriously escape the militia with a questionable sudden change of heart), Jason Neville (he has a bloody pocketknife in his pocket after Miles has collected all weapons — but is it a plant?), or Nora (that torturous injection mixed up for her in the militia prison can cause hallucinations and paranoia).

'Revolution' react: Better off alone?

The latest episode of Revolution had many of our heroes wondering whether they’re better off on their own. Charlie sympathizes with Jason’s wish to be rid of his dad, as she recalls feeling better off without her mom. Nora decides sleeping with Miles was a mistake — odds are one of them will die soon, and it’s better to not grow close again before that happens. Rachel, leg broken until her mysterious capsule fixes it, continues to beg Aaron to leave her, to trek to the Tower alone. Monroe’s distrust in his friends and allies reaches new tragic heights.
