Revolution - Season 1

Revolution, Season 1, Episode 13: “The Song Remains the Same”
Written by Monica Owusu-Breen and Matt Pitts
Directed by John F. Showalter
Airs Mondays at 10 pm (ET) on NBC

“What’s a boyband?” — Jason

Every now and then, Revolution offers a reminder that this is a world unfamiliar to us. Miles, Rachel, and Aaron may know our existence in 2013, but the world has changed immeasurably.

This is the future, one where tiny robots with devastating power permeate the air. Yet for all the science-fiction elements, the plot is still very much driven by the oldest of dramatic tensions, that within and between families.

The inter- and intra-family dynamics are the most pronounced they’ve been to date. Save for a brief firefight and a brief sojourn to Monroe HQ, we spend our time here with various combinations of the Mathesons and Nevilles.

Miles and Rachel are battling for Charlie’s affections, whether they mean to or not. Rachel recognizes she’s fighting a losing battle, and perhaps Charlie is best to follow in the footsteps of her uncle after all. The kiss between Miles and Rachel certainly stirs the pot, even if it was inevitable.

Tom and Jason can’t stand nor trust each other, and their chess match here seems to put the last nail in the coffin of their relationship. That is, unless, Julia is once more used as a pawn.

Many great shows have their roots in family ties. Look at Arrested Development and Game of Thrones as examples. It’s a well-worn TV path to tread, but there’s no shame in it. Placing greater focus on the family, even as the world is crumbling around our core characters, is a smart way to position Revolution moving forward.
