NBC Revolution penultimate episode: Get ready to burn the planet up
I caught the last half of the penultimate NBC “Revolution” Episode this evening as I returned from an outdoors trip.
So, what? The big Boss says they don’t dare turn the light back on because if might set the entire world on fire? (That sounds the end of my first unpublished novel "The Proles".) The previews for the Season Finale repeat that conservative adage, “Be careful what you wish for.”
The episode is called “Children of Men”, named after the 2006 Universal film by Alfonso Cuaron, with Clive Owen, Julianne Moore and Michael Caine, where all the women of the world have become infertile (except one).
If you have no biological stake in the future, who are you to speak? Is that the point?
The episode tonight ends with the handwritten directions for turning on the lights being turned, after Rachel, Zak, and Miles reach “Level 12”.
Zak says, if the power comes back on, he doesn’t have to live in fear. Or without point.
