Revolution Episode 107, ‘The Children’s Crusade’: The One-Image RecapNBC
This was the seventh episode of Revolution’s first season. Let’s get you all caught up on what’s happened, in case you’ve been skipping the biggest new hit of the fall, like a crazy person with no regard for being entertained:
- The world lost all of its electricity, for mysterious reasons that are becoming increasingly less mysterious.
- A horse-drawn carriage improvised from a sawed-in-half car cruised by once, Wrigley Field was covered in vines, and a dude was printing a Harry Potter book by hand.
- Periodically, a character has used the magical amulet you see above to turn the power back on just long enough to do something crucial to the fate of humanity, like check their iPhone wallpaper, listen to Marvin Gaye on a Discman, or revive a lighthouse for five seconds.
- A ragtag gang of rebels has chased after the lead girl’s kidnapped brother for, like, the entire time. This might actually be a show only about rescuing that one guy, now that we think about it. What happens when they get him back? If this were Homeland, the producers would have beheaded that kid in Episode 2 and turned this into a series about what happens in a postapocalyptic world with too much electricity, blowing all our minds.
That’s it. You are current on Revolution. Pun intended, kill us now.

Not shown: every other useful thing in the world.

We bet you can’t even tell that one is Photoshopped. You know why? Because it isn’t.
Next week: The magic amulet falls out of Mr. Google’s pocket, which is a bad thing to have happen in the context of this show.
