Revolution is definitely in the phase where they are showing us just how flawed our protagonists are. Aaron left his wife not long after the blackout and even if there was some sort of noble intention of doing that, you just don’t leave your wife! Charlie nearly killed someone because she thought her and her friends (not to mention brother) were more important than anything else. We found out a few episodes ago that Miles was the big head honcho of the Monroe Militia in years gone by and was one of the reasons such a corrupt organization was founded, not a kind or caring group, in fact they are pretty much a band of thugs and murderers serving the interests and power hunger of one man.
And of course there’s Nate. I figured he would be a complicated character right from episode one. And now we have find out he is Captain Neville’s son. He seems to have some sort of moral compass, but family and loyalty complicate the whole ordeal.
I wonder what we are going to find out about Nora? She seems to be the only one we haven’t had any dirt dished on yet.
Nothing has annoyed me too much yet. Flawed characters are pretty much essential to believable human drama, but I usually don’t want my characters to be too flawed or to stay that way for too long. There has to be movement and growth. We’ll see what happens.
