'Revolution': 'Three Amigos' goes south of the border

"Revolution" remains unconcerned with burning through story in its second season. Wednesday's (Jan. 8) return featured Monroe, Miles and Rachel both searching for and finding Monroe's long-lost son; Aaron making it to the mysterious Spring City, Okla.; the continuing adventures of Charlie Matheson, unstoppable killing machine; Act II of Macbeth in the White House with Neville and his wife; and a mind-control plot on the part of the Patriots.The crux of the episode, though, was Monroe meeting up with his son*, Conner, whom Miles secreted away to Mexico years earlier when Monroe was in his crazy-dictator phase. They meet up, finally, and it turns out nature beats nurture in this case: Like his dad, Conner is a petty tyrant, leading a drug-cartel crew that runs the small town where he lives, and dismissive of other perspectives.(*David Lyons, who's 37 in real life, is obviously playing somewhat older on the show, but he tells Zap2it the... //

He's not entirely sure about the "likable" part yet, but he has been enjoying playing the version of Monroe viewers have seen thus far in Season 2."I wouldn't say that he's been redeemed," Lyons tells Zap2it. "I think what you're starting to see in Monroe is more aspects of his former humanity and his former self, intertwined with that megalomaniacal aspect of his nature. ... At the moment he's like this weird cross-pollination of two different creatures -- one that's trying to do the right thing but has this propensity to turn his back on people and go down that selfish road. ... "But I like where [the writers have] gone... //

He'll also perform the Poison song "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" on the episode, which will air sometime in the back half of Season 2."Bret is truly a great guy," series creator Eric Kripke says.
