Question: Please tell me you got some Revolution scoop out of the NBC upfront. Something, anything? — Kyle
Ausiello: Not only did Matt Mitovich score you some scoop, he scored it directly from Giancarlo Esposito, who told him, through the finale, “Tom’s next move is to try and cover his own butt, first. But also, there is a race to figure out who really is in control of the power. The final episode will blow your mind in terms of all of the elements coming together, and some questions you haven’t even thought of asking will be answered.”
Ack! Monroe has Nora. What’s going to happen on Revolution? — Ben
NATALIE: Suffice it to say, Nora being in Monroe’s custody is not a good thing, but according to Daniella Alonso, she may use her plight to her advantage. “Even though she’s chained up and has a lot of guards on her, she does her best to try to kill him,” she says. And worry not, though we’ll see moments of weakness, Alonso assures us that there’s no way Nora will be turned to the militia’s side.
Episode 1.20 – The Dark Tower
The rebels infiltrate the tower; Miles faces a situation that tests his character and leadership ability; Aaron’s knowledge comes in handy.
05/20/2013 (10:01PM – 11:00PM) (Monday) : NORA IS LEFT FOR DEAD AND MONROE IS STALKED BY RACHEL AS MILES SEEKS A MURDERER AMONG HIS CORE GROUP- A captive Nora (Daniella Alonso) is tortured and left for dead. Monroe (David Lyons) learns of Rachael’s (Elizabeth Mitchell) attempt to reach the Tower but is unaware of her deadly plan for him. Meanwhile, Miles (Billy Burke) is desperate to find out how so many of his close associates are being brutally murdered. Later, Miles, Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos), Neville (Giancarlo Esposito), Jason, (JD Pardo) Hudson (Malik Yoba) and Sanborn (Leland Orser) struggle to make it out of the Plains Nation to join Rachel and save her from what they believe to be certain death.
At 10, “Revolution” (2.1/6 in 18-49, 6.3 million viewers overall) was up a bit over last week’s preliminary estimate and should finish up about 11% in the nationals. The network went with more emotional, uplifting promotions leading up to this episode and that may have helped hold on to more of the core female audience from “The Voice.” In the 10:30 p.m. half-hour, “Revolution” matched last week’s rating in men 18-49 (1.5) but surged by 16% in women 18-49 (2.2 vs. 1.9).
Revolution 1×17 “The Longest Day” – Romantic connections heat up between two couples — Miles (Billy Burke) and Nora (Daniella Alonso) and Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) and Jason (JD Pardo) — but disastrous drone strikes from the Militia threaten them all. An assassination attempt on Monroe (David Lyons) heightens his paranoia and Georgia Federation President Foster (guest star Leslie Hope) contemplates surrender. Meanwhile, Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell) and Aaron (Zak Orth) push through the Plains Nation into Colorado.
