'Revolution': Blackout Mystery Explained?

Just seven episodes into “ Revolution ” and the show is already answering questions about some its biggest mysteries, like how the blackout is even possible. Apparently Rachel, Ben and Grace inadvertently created a device that turned off all electricity while trying to develop a clean power source. And the Department of Defense took interest in the project. A flashback revealed them grappling with the decision to work with the DOD. "Rachel, we are crashing a burning here. Another month, we won’t be able to keep the lights on. DOD is a lifeline,” Ben urged. “What if they want to use it as a weapon?” Rachel ominously asked. TV Guide loved the reveal -- and said they can’t wait to see what questions the show answers next. But TVLine pointed out that some questions still remain. Did they take the DOD contract? Or is someone else responsible for the blackout? TV Replay scours the vast television landscape to find the most interesting, amusing, and, on a good day, amazing moments, and delivers them right to your browser.

Revolution to Reveal Source of Blackout?

To the shock of almost every viewer, Once Upon a Time broke its curse at the conclusion of its opening season. Now, Revolution showrunner Eric Kripke tells Entertainment Weekly his hit NBC series may go a similar route, unveiling the answer to the drama's central mystery long before most fans likely assumed. “We’re talking very seriously about revealing [what caused the blackout] before end of this season,” Kripke says , adding that the explanation will be scientifically plausible, according to physicists to whom he has spoken. When might Revolution make this reveal? Kripke didn't specify, but its final episode of 2012 is scheduled for some time around Thanksgiving. It will then take a four-month break and return in late March . “The sweet spot is to find an answer that’s actually scarier than what you were thinking,” Kripke teases. “Like, ‘Oh wait, this is not even just about electricity.’ And that’s what we’re designing. I don’t see any reason to withhold it much longer.”
