NBC’s ‘Revolution’ season 2, episode 12 preview: Who will survive the outbreak?

The latest -Did the Patriots intentionally try to engage in biological warfare? That is one of the suggestions of Rachel in the promo below for next week’s “Revolution” episode “Captain Trips,” and we really don’t have a reason to doubt her given how often that she is right.

But, the question that we have to raise at this point anytime that we have a sickness-related storyline in the modern TV world is if this is starting to become a little too much like “The Walking Dead.” Is there anything interesting that can come from this sort of story at this point that hasn’t been done already? The only real way to avoid this common TV pratfall is to make sure that the sickness story really leads us in somewhere surprising and unexpected, and that it doesn’t really last for that long.

There is still plenty of other stuff happening in this episode as well, including seeing more of Monroe and Miles actually working together. You can see some more of that in the synopsis below:

“When Gene (Stephen Collins) decides to assist the town of Willoughby, Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell) and Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) feel compelled to help too as Miles (Billy Burke) and Monroe (David Lyons) continue to join forces in order to survive.”

This winter is going to be the time for “Revolution” that we are definitely excited to see. For the first time, it is airing directly against “American Idol,” which is going to be so much more of a threat than “The X Factor” was in the ratings. Also, you’ll still have “Survivor” coming up later.
