Is what we have below quite possibly the greatest “Revolution” sneak peek of all time? After watching this a couple of times, we’re starting to really think so. Ever since midway through the first season, one of the things that we have hoped to see more on the show are subtle reminders that this is a product of Eric Kripke, such a smart and witty guy who brought us “Supernatural.” This may be one of the best examples of a Kripke scene ever: It starts going in one direction, and then takes a complete left turn that makes you laugh.
As a matter of fact, this scene is in some ways so surprising that there is a certain amount of anxiety that comes in saying anything about it at all, since it may spoil some of the fun. For now, the best way to tease it is to say that the clip starts off with what appears to be a torture situation of sorts, where there is a mysterious red door that people enter, and then never leave. Everyone loves seeing this sort of thing on a show, right?
It is moments later that the comedy starts courtesy of a nostalgic story about a man whose legend has been passed down from generation to generation, and the feeling here is that this is going to be one of the few funny moments in an episode that could otherwise be somewhat serious. With a name like “There Will Be Blood,” after all, it is somewhat hard to imagine anyone rolling on the floor laughing after watching the end of the hour.
