"He kind of sounds like you"

An excellent return to the series. Every time I wonder if this show can continue it starts to get a new head of steam. Love it.

However, I thought DC was one of the cities that got hit by nukes in the last season, along with Philly and Atlanta. I would have thought it to be a radiation wasteland at this point. Instead, it's almost the idyllic countryside that it was during the founding of the country and the White House and Washington Monument still appear to be largely intact. Did I misremember the scene in the Tower? It's been a while, and I likely forgot exactly what happened, but I could have sworn DC was one of the targets.

If true, then they're going to have a whole town's population tripping balls and psychotically homicidal in a matter of hours.

What's the plan there again??

I guess the Patriots are going to convert Willoughby into a psyops camp and recruit the younger healthy townspeople into soldiers.

Re: Revolution Season 2 - spoilers

One thing I’ve noticed about S2 is the prevalence of modern assault rifle machine guns and no muskets and civil-war era rifles, like what Monroe’s people mostly used in the first half of S1. I assume the Patriots have a large supply of ammo, or even figured out how to manufacture precision-made ammo without electricity, but even the Mexicans are using Kalashnikovs and M16s. The Texas Rangers, who use shotguns and pistols as hand-held weapons, even have wagon-mounted machine guns. I guess concern over shortages of ammunition for modern semi-automatic and automatic guns that was mentioned early in S1 is now a non-issue in the series. About the only ones who haven't had modern guns so far in S2 are the war clans.

^Yep, and sword play seems to have gone out the window with the ammo shortage.

Re: Revolution Season 2 - spoilers

Any moron can make bullets. You see it on those survivalists specials now and then.

It's just a device the size of a coffeemachine with a hand crank to bend the casings into shape.

Munroe decided that his people would be easier to control/safer without guns.

Other states had different more tolerant gunlaws.

Ancient Rome, dilly dallied on the formation of a fire department for 200 years becuase they didn't want the fire department to turn into a militia and take over the city, true story.

It's a tiny shitty town, with probably only a couple thousand people in it, even though we've only seen a few dozen.

Patriots are like sickos messing with Halloween candy. Meh. LOL.

ETA: I thought it was strange Grandpa looked at Charlie in horror like his innocent little granddaughter was a monster. I could be wrong but hasn't she been like that since they met?
