Tom Neville is a man who does not deviate from his plan, not even if his own son Jason is asking for help, as Revolution Season 2 Episode 18 so aptly proved.
There was a moment in the beginning when Tom grabbed Jason's face with his hands like a father would, making Jason think that for once he is actually listening to him... only to shoot down Jason's feelings and pleas for help once again.
It's a harsh reality of living with Tom, and Jason heading out on his own away from his father is a good call. Tom is nothing more than an escape artist. He escapes all of his problems by hiding behind his grandiose plans, ambitions and goals.
