Revolution Season 2 Review “Dead Man Walking

At some point or another, the network is going to put the advertising machine into overdrive and hype a show up as hard as it can. For the past week, NBC has been doing just that with “Dead Man Walking.” Hyped as the episode we’ll be talking about all season, the question was whether or not Revolutioncould live up to the hype. Thanks to several big moments, I think it’s safe to say the show pulled it off.

This was an episode that was at a bit of a disadvantage because, thanks to the previews, we knew Monroe was going to get captured. This made the first few scenes a bit of a waiting game, though they were played well, showing just how reckless Monroe was in attacking the Patriots. Still, his capture did seem a bit too easy, so it was clear that someone had rat him out. The obvious culprit was Rachel, who in fact did give the Patriots a heads up about Charlie and Miles’ breakout attempt. I wasn’t even mad at her for this decision, as she has numerous, justifiable reasons to hate Monroe and want to see him dead. I was actually more surprised that Miles was willing to consider helping him at all.
