Revolution Season 2 Review “Why We Fight”

I’ve said time and time again how much Revolution has stepped up its game this season, but it’s always the first thought that comes to mind when an episode is as good as “Why We Fight” was. From Monroe’s first big success at taking back power, to Tom’s continued manipulations, to Charlie’s spiral into despair, everything about this episode had me excited to see what happens next.

I laid out my favorite moments in a bit of a list there, so I might as well start with Monroe. This episode served as reminder of how bloodthirsty he can, but it also showed how easily he can take advantage of a situation. When the group came across the remnants of New Vegas, he was quick to set himself up as a charismatic figure, one that would lead the vengeful men into battle. While it was a bummer to hear about the destruction of New Vegas and the death of the underdeveloped Duncan, it’s good to see Monroe getting a taste of the power he once had.
