Last week I said that Revolution needed a big episode for me to continue watching next March, and I think it succeeded. For one, the stuff between Miles and Monroe was excellent, some of the best acting of the season, and we got a whole chunk load of backstory between the two of them. It's also great we got this backstory because now it makes the fight between them all the more meaningful. That entire scene, from the staredown to the sword fight might have been the best scene of the show thus far.
Really wish the show was coming back earlier than March, but I think I will be back. Yeah they ended it on a bit of a cliffhanger, but I saw it more of wrapping up one story and moving on to the next chapter. That's really what I wish more arc shows would do. Either have great character work, or don't drag things out for such a long time where the show is cancelled before the mystery is solved, a la, Alcatraz last year.
