NBC’s ‘Revolution’ season 2 spoilers: Executive producer charts story of second half

The latest -We’re just about to the midway point of “Revolution” season 2, and when the show returns in the new year, we are going to have an opportunity to see a battle for what really could be the characters’ freedom. This is a different sort of story than was told last season; it’s not not so much about restoring the power as it is preservation, and making sure the right people are in power to oversee this new world.

In the universe set up for the show, the ones identifying themselves as the “United States” may ultimately be the bad guys. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, creator / executive producer Eric Kripke gives a little bit of insight into just what we are talking about here:

“The second half of the season is part of our group marshaling their forces and pulling everyone together — that includes Monroe’s son and Neville — and bringing everyone together against the bad guys. Meanwhile, the bad guys’ plan becomes terrifyingly clear as well as the audience getting to know really the big bad of the season, which is the president of the ‘United States’ — in quotes. All the chess pieces are moving into position for a final confrontation.”

What has us interested here is that there is a very clear plan for what the overall story of the season is going to be, but also some of what is going to be a smaller, more intricate character story. As Monroe starts to get used to being a dad (which he previously never knew about), this could lead to some fun opportunities to get to know about him that we did not have previously. This could be a very good thing for us as viewers to find Monroe more sympathetic. Even if he does remain a villain, it is always nice to have your villain be somewhat conflicted as well as complicated.

What do you want to see with “Revolution” moving forward, and do you think you could come to really root for Monroe? Share below, and also click here if you want to read read our full Midseason Report Card for the show.
