I think he put it in a drawer or something after he was looking at it.

Re: Revolution Season 2 - spoilers

While Revolution isn't a ratings blockbuster like the Walking Dead, NBC cannot be comletely unhappy with this past Wednesday's take:

TV by the Numbers
This is NBC’s best premiere Wednesday in 18-49 (2.4) in five years (since 2008, 2.5).
NBC jumped 26% versus its year-ago premiere-week Wednesday to score its top rating for an opening-week Wednesday in three years.
In its first original with no “Voice” lead-in, “Revolution” (1.8/6 in 18-49, 6.8 million viewers overall from 8-9 p.m. ET) finished within just a tenth of a rating point of the 1.9 average for the last five Spring telecasts of its first season (1.9 was also the show’s average in the May sweep), and each of those earlier telecasts benefitted from a “Voice” lead-in. It’s NBC’s best rating in the time period with in-season regular programming since January, 11 2012. “Revolution” (1.8/6 from 8-9) also beat NBC’s premiere-week result in the slot last year by 20% (1.8 vs. 1.5 for comedies) and topped NBC’s slot average for the 2012-13 season by 29% (1.8 vs. 1.4, “live plus same day, non-sports”).

I'm confused, our characters chose to shut off the power AFTER the nukes hit? Why didn't they shut it off BEFORE the nukes hit? Or did it take them awhile to figure out how to do it?
Did you watch the episode? It was pretty clear they tried to turn the power off before the nukes hit and it took too long. The only question is if they could turn the power back on again or if their quick shut off eliminated any chance to bring the power back later.

Personally, I'm hoping they just blew up the tower, so we don't have to worry about any more turn the power on/off stuff and can just focus on the other elements of the show.

So our heroes wanted to turn on the lights, did so, and millions of people died. They realized they were wrong, and turned them off again. Sort of an expensive epiphany.

No, they wanted to turn on the lights. Did. Realized they were being tricked and were used to try and kill millions. Tried to stop the murder, but failed. I don't know why this is hard for people to understand.

Miles got both his hands/fingers broke didn't he? That would seem a significant injury in a world without power and lack of advanced medical supplies especially to someone who is a swordfighter. So unless there's a time jump, I'm guessing Aaron will gain the ability to manipulate the nanites consciously and heal Miles.

Looking forward to technowizard Aaron so if it doesn't actually happen I'll be bummed.

Re: Revolution Season 2 - spoilers

I thought this was good episode. Pretty much all of the stories moved forward in interesting directions.
I wonder what caused the computers to crash and then go boom in the Tower? I'm pretty sure there had to be someone or something behind that.
I'm wonder if Neville actually killed the ex-Rebel or just pretended to so he could get close to Allenford?

So far I am liking the new direction, but is anyone else surprised that it airs at 8:00 PM? It seems quite violent to air so early.

The Walker Texas Ranger thing was funny as was Aaron telling the kids the plot of Ghostbusters. Dead rats...brrrrrrrrrrrrr. That Titus Andover guy is way creepy...child porn and molesting...guy needs to die. Willoughby reminds me too much of Woodbury from The Walking Dead.

Yes, Titus is very creepy. I hope he dies a very creative death at the hands of Miles.

So, you think her security guys wouldn't have examined the body to determine it's actually dead?

Also, the look of surprise on the rebel's face pretty much indicates he wasn't in on that part of Neville's plan.
