Monroe has lost faith in Tom Neville but gives him one more chance to redeem himself. He's sent on a mission but the rebels intercept him and he is soon their prisoner. Miles and the other rebel leaders want to question him but Rachel wants only one thing: to kill him. Charlie intervenes and keeps her away from him. When Jason Neville and other rebels soon arrive and he too wants to speak to his father but Miles thinks it's too much of a security risk. They do learn that Neville was headed to a nearby one-time cement factory but when they get there, they are not pleased with what they find. Meanwhile, Rachel explains to Aaron exactly what caused the lights to go out 15 years ago. After the find at the cement, she decides there is something the two of them can do. Written by garykmcd

Finally Living Up To Its Potential...
13 April 2013 | by (London) – See all my reviews

So, like some others that have reviewed this show, I haven't really been all that impressed by Revolution. I love the concept and I love some of the acting (Esposito and Lyons especially,) but I just hadn't really been able to quite get into it as something I eagerly waited for each week. But, I have been following it here and there just to see if things would pick up. Last month I decided I would check out the mid season premiere and if I didn't like it I would be done bothering with the show. After all, Kripke said they had taken the time off to dramatically re-assess the show and I was hoping something might surprise me. So, I watched it, felt it hadn't really changed or improved, and decided I was done.

However, about an hour ago, because I was bored (and because I'm sadly weak willed), I decided to check out the newest one since it had been PVR'd on my TV, and I have to say, I was kind of shocked. That was not only the best episode of Revolution I've seen, but I would put it right up there with my other favourite TV shows right now, including Game Of Thrones, Dexter, The Walking Dead, Boardwalk Empire, and Spartacus. I don't know if it was the new director (Showalter) or the writers (Breen and Pitts), but everything from the camera angels (loved the shots of Esposito after the explosion), to the plot, to the suspense (didn't like to see Padre killed off but it reminded a lot of Saving Private Ryan in a great way), to the script, just about everything was what I've been waiting for from an episode of Revolution. It was liking watching an average C+ student finally realize their potential and start writing A+ material.

If they can keep up this kind of quality for the show I will definitely stick with it. For now at least though, they've convinced me to tune in for another week again.
