Schizophrenic show. Lavish production, great direction, supremely attractive cast, potentially riveting storyline, cheesy throwaway lines, yet brain-dead setups that require a full frontal lobotomy for any suspension of belief.

I'll give it a few more eps.

I've thought it was pretty clear from the moment they introduced the pendants and Randall that there was some kind of a conspiracy involved in all of this.

So the DOD guy is Randal and he has a fully powered particle accelerator complex?

Hmmm, my earlier joke about a quest to throw "the one pendant" into the hadron collidor may have hit closer than I thought.

I knew that whoever the DOD guy was, he'd end up playing an important part in the series. You don't just waste Colm Feore in a one-shot role!

Re: The Revolution pilot is online now...

Strange setup with the accelerator. There are two tubes, both straight. I'm going to assume that whatever trick Randall pulled would need a lot of energy, and that you only get in the circular ones. The linear (stright) ones are used to accelerate particles into the circular ones, but having two is a little bit unnecessary, since they can't integrate with each other.

I'm even more confused with the conspiracy now that Randall obviously knew about the pendants, so they can't have been insurance for Ben and his friends, in case Randal went rogue. And what is Randall's end game? It can't be keeping the world dark, but he does seem to not want all the pendants in one basket, and therefore be used to light the world again. If he caused the blackout, he could be waiting for something, but I have no idea what.

Re: The Revolution pilot is online now...

It would seem obvious that Randal is working with (or planning to work with) one of the militias (unless he ha his own group) , for a power play. I don't think he is working with Monroe otherwise what would be the point of Monroe trying to find the pendants etc.. Maybe the plan was to thin the population out by having the militias fight each other for years, then give electricity to Randal's 'group' and take over the world. Monroe also want electricity to take over the world but he does not have the power to do that yet, Randal does.

Re: The Revolution pilot is online now...

The sad part is, after 15 years with no power, most things won't work if power is restored anyway. unless from the beginning they have been doing maintenance, all that military equipment will have dry rotted. It's nearly as absurd as the Harriers in Battlefield: Earth still being operational.

Re: The Revolution pilot is online now...

I thought this was really good episode. We got some good stuff with Neville and his family, got some nice development for Nora, and I thought Strausser was a pretty good new villain. I'm very curious to find out what Randall is doing at a large hadron collider. I'm still thinking he's working for the as yet unseen group responsible for the blackout. I'm honestly not sure yet if they'll be the big bads or if it will continue to be Monroe even after we start to learn more about them.

Ya and BE was 1000 years later too! LOL

Still Randal may have a stock pile of Military equipment stored away that will work. Keep in mind that he has electricity at his location, so maintenance can be keep up on that stuff.

I was thinking of Munroe, not Randall. We don't really know Randall's situation yet.

So where exactly was that lighthouse last week drawing its power from? Was it a battery powered lighthouse??!!
