Revolution – Season 2 – Details from WonderCon 2014 Panel

The Patriot and the nano storyline have been separate so far, with the group being divided and each of the characters following their own quests. O’Bannon said that both of these stories will come together in the last episode of the season and the nano storyline will become a huge factor, with Rachel taking center stage. Mitchell for her part said she really enjoys being part of both the Patriot and the nano world.

O’Bannon teased the aftermath of Jason’s death, stating that it will have an emotional resonance but gives the series a right turn. It will hit Charlie in an unusual way and her means of dealing with it will be unexpected. The decision to kill off Jason was a difficult one to make but O’Bannon assured that ultimately it shows that any character is vulnerable and it makes the stakes more real. He also warned to be prepared for Neville to revert back to his old self and become even worse.

When asked if Rachel would be providing Charlie with comfort and helping her cope with her loss, Mitchell admitted that Rachel isn’t the best person to come to for help with problems. However, she believes Rachel is trying to lay moral hope and also be a good mother. She will try her best to help Charlie with the situation but whether Charlie accepts that help is yet to be seen.

Aaron’s Journal Entry
Walking

The woman I’m sitting next to is a complete stranger – a stranger I’ve known for more than 20 years. A stranger I married, built a life with, shared all of my secrets with… but I don’t know her at all.

I feel like such a fool. For some truly idiotic reason, I thought the nanotech might be done with me. That after giving them everything they wanted, I might be free and clear. But everything that’s happened since I woke up in that hotel room in Lubbock – it’s all been another manipulation.

Priscilla is being controlled. The nanotech is inside her head, firing her nerves and synapses. Picking through her memories, her thoughts. Pulling her strings… for what? What else could they possibly want from me?

I don’t know what’s worse, the idea that they’re going to force me to help them again, or the idea that they truly are just using Priscilla’s body to experience the world from a new perspective. And if they decide they like the feeling of being in Priscilla’s skin, what hope do I have of ever getting the real Priscilla back?

But more than anything, I can’t help but think about the choice Priscilla made. They constructed a fantasy world for me, full of Bud Light and working toasters and bacon, and it took a while, but eventually it became all too clear that it was an illusion. We’ve been walking for more than a week. Priscilla has to know that whatever world they built for her is fake, too. But she chose to stay inside it. She chose the illusion. And I kind of feel like an idiot for not choosing it, too. Because honestly, being with Priscilla again… that’s what drew me back to the real world. I didn’t want to fail her again. But I chose her, and she didn’t choose me. I gave up paradise for her, and it was all for nothing.

I gotta say, being out on the road with a bunch of sorta sentient robots driving around my wife like a lady-shaped RV – I thought I’d hit the apex on surreal experiences, but this is a new high. I’m half expecting to round the next bend and see an army of talking apes on horseback.

So now I guess I have to just continue on, side by side with this stranger. Head back to Willoughby, and my friends, and do anything I can to get the real Priscilla back. Because after everything I’ve given up for her… what’s a little bit more?
