While things have been mostly uneven and sometimes boring for most of the year, Revolution Season 2 Episode 13 was a surprisingly fun and philosophical installment for the series.
There are a lot of plot elements in play with everyone once again setting out on their own adventure, but let’s start with Tom.
We finally get to meet the President, a hard man who hides behind his southern charm and immediately uses Tom to his advantage. He wants him to execute Monroe or Julia pays the price. It’s the only threat that would really work against Tom: going after his family.
One has to hand it to Tom, he never misses an opportunity to gain something. He’s been in solitary confinement, he’s dirty, thirsty, and hungry... yet he’s willing to make a play to the President to get Jason out too. He’s a survivalist through and through.
