It's hard to believe there's only one episode left in Revolution's freshmen season. So what questions did Monday's penultimate episode raise and which did it answer? The people who've taken over The Tower, for one! Read on to find out that and the answers to five other burning questions. [Warning: This episode contains major spoilers for Revolution's episode "Children of Men"]
1. Into the belly of the beast Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell) really screwed herself over on this one. After her attempted suicide bombing fails, Monroe (David Lyons) forces her to let them inside The Tower — the last place on Earth she wants Bass to be! Not only can you turn on the power, but you can also use The Tower to spy on anyone in the world and even kill them — but only from the oh-so ominous Level 12. Before they can make it all the way down, they're brutally ambushed by The Others who usurped The Tower from Randall.
2. Separation anxiety Whoever thought Aaron's (Zak Orth) lack of stealth would come in handy? Thanks to his not-so-sneaky spying, Miles (Billy Burke) and Co. accidentally find Google Boy and decide to storm The Tower together. Too bad Jason (JD Pardo) and Neville (Giancarlo Esposito) get trapped outside and ultimately are captured by Monroe's people. Ruh-roh!
But thanks to some sweet-talking by the father-son duo, Neville and Jason talk their way out of cuffs and recruit a few more anti-Monroe men. Not really too bad a day, in the long run.
3. Bunker buddies Rachel and Monroe are forced to hide out in a bunker where Monroe makes an emotional peace offering (anyone else get the idea that maybe the sad guy who jumped off a bridge might have once been him?). But suicide stories aside, it was great to see Rachel and Monroe working together. Even though they're on opposite sides, there's no denying this pair has chemistry!
4. An unlikely hero Miles, Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) and Aaron make it down to the slaughterhouse that is Level 11 and decide to head towards the armory to gear up for another potential attack. Too bad it's already been ransacked. Of course, Rachel has the power to unlock the guns in the Vice President's bunker, which she ultimately decides to do but only after Monroe promises to help keep Charlie safe. In a happy turn of events, Monroe actually follows through on his promise, rescuing Charlie from an impending attack. Miles, on the other hand... Well, let's just say he isn't exactly one to forgive and forget.
5. The people inside The Tower are... Friends. Well, kind of. It turns out that Grace wasn't kidnapped (again) but has actually been rescued by a new generation of mole people who dedicate their lives to guarding the Tower. Their leader, one of Rachel's old colleagues, has forbidden any access to Level 12. But not for any selfish, tyrannical reasons. It turns out, Rachel hasn't been completely truthful (shocker!). Yes, if Rachel turns the power on she might save the world — or she might set it on fire. Do you think it's worth the risk?
Revolution's finale airs Monday, June 3 at 10/9c on NBC.
