Revolution Episode Recap: Everyone Says I Love You, the Details
Season 2 Episode 9 of Revolution, titled Everyone Says I Love You, begins with Miles, Rachel, and Charlie having snuck into town, plotting how to get into the building to rescue Aaron and Cynthia, as well as Gene. However, as they get closer, they discover several soldiers laying on the ground. Miles checks their pulse, but they’re not dead, just out cold. They go in through the front door, and find more soldiers knocked out inside. Charlie finds Aaron’s footprints, which she can identify by the boots he wears. They follow the footprints to a door, behind which they find a tunnel. The soldiers begin waking up, so they escape through the tunnel.
After the soldiers wake up, one reports to Horn that it looks like Aaron and Cynthia escaped through the tunnels. Meanwhile, Miles, Rachel, and Charlie exit the tunnel, which has brought them outside the town walls. Charlie picks up the trail and begins to follow it. However, Rachel says she has to go back for her dad, and tells Miles and Charlie to continue on and find Aaron. They hear a sound, and hide behind some tall grass. It’s a group of Patriot soldiers, heavily armed, some on horseback and in wagons, including Dr. Horn. Miles tells Rachel she doesn’t have a choice but to find Aaron with them.
Aaron wakes up in the school library, and finds Cynthia laying nearby. She is alive. He checks where they stabbed her, but she is completely healed. Suddenly, he hears a sound. It’s a young boy, who says he lives there. The boy says Aaron walked in on his own, and Cynthia was in his arms. Aaron doesn’t remember.
Monroe to the Rescue
Charlie loses the trail. They see 3 Patriot soldiers approaching in the fog. Charlie throws a knife into one’s chest, and Miles uses his sword to kill the other two. However, shots are fired, which attracts a couple more soldiers. Monroe, who has been hiding nearby, jumps out and saves them. They run off together.
Aaron gives Cynthia some water and the boy asks if she’ll be okay, and Aaron says he hopes so. Aaron asks the boy if he’s seen him around town, because he looks familiar, but the boy says no. He tells Aaron he’s been looking for his parents, and that he’s from Spring City, Oklahoma. A Patriot soldier peers in through the window at them.
Dr. Horn and other soldiers come across the dead soldiers. He tells a soldier to take a horse and ride back to town to tell Truman to send everyone he’s got. He says they need to find Pittman now, and that he’s out of time.
Monroe brings the crew down into a cellar. He and Miles speak privately. Monroe doesn’t seem to want to help Miles out anymore, and just wants to know where his son is. Miles shows him that his wound is infected, and tells him that he’s having trouble swinging a sword, so he needs Monroe’s help saving Aaron. Miles says that if Monroe doesn’t help, then he’ll never help him find his son. Meanwhile, in the other room, Rachel feels bad about the way she left things with her father. Rachel and Charlie tell each other they love each other. Monroe and Miles rejoin them so they can all go look for Aaron.
“We Just Wanna Talk”
Flashback to 6 years before the blackout, Rachel catches up with Miles at the airport before he is about to ship off with the Marines. He tells her they have to stop doing this, that his brother is a good man, and better for her. She says that all he has to do is tell her he loves her, and she’ll leave Ben and wait for Miles. Miles, with tears in his eyes, tells her that he doesn’t love her, but she says she doesn’t believe him. He apologizes and leaves.
A soldier reports back to Dr. Horn that he found Aaron.
Back on the trail, Monroe notices that things seem a little quiet. Rachel comments that the Patriots must have found Aaron. Charlie finds and follows the trail the Patriots left.
Cynthia wakes up, and Aaron says they’re going to get out of here. The boy tells him not to go, not yet, that he needs to talk to Aaron. Cynthia asks Aaron who he’s talking to, and Aaron says the kid standing right there, but Cynthia doesn’t see anyone. The boy tells him, “We fixed her. We brought you back to life. We just wanna talk.” Aaron freaks out and leaves, but Cynthia convinces him to go back in and talk to the boy he saw.
The boy is looking at Spring City, Oklahoma on the map when Aaron returns to the room. Aaron recognizes the boy as his friend Kevin from 3rd grade. The boy says they know everything about him, even his “thinks.” Aaron realizes the boy is the nanotech. Aaron asks if the boy is saying they’re AI, that they’re alive, and how. The boy says that Aaron woke them up. We get a short flashback to that night when Aaron turned the power back on, at which point a crazy lightning storm broke out. The boy says Aaron made them. Aaron asks what they want from him, and the boy asks if he’s ever been to Spring City, Oklahoma. Aaron gets frustrated by the riddles, and demands answers. The boy says Aaron made them, so they just wanted to help him. The boy explains that Aaron says “kill” in his head, and that’s why they killed those people. But Aaron tells them to stop killing people, and to go away. The boy looks outside and replies, “They’re here,” and we see the Patriot forces arriving.
Miles and Rachel, Charlie and Monroe
Miles and company arrive outside of the school, see that the Patriots are already there, and move in to rescue Aaron. Inside the school, Dr. Horn doesn’t look too good, and nearly stumbles. Miles and crew take out a guard and sneak in. They split up — Miles with Rachel, and Charlie with Monroe. Meanwhile, Aaron and Cynthia hide in the library. A Patriot soldier enters, and they slip out unseen. Rachel and Miles enter the library, and Miles falls down. Rachel barricades the door with a chair. Miles reveals his infection to Rachel, and tells her to go. However, Rachel says he’s not pushing her away this time, and she’s not leaving. Just then, Patriots try to enter the room.
Meanwhile, Monroe and Charlie look for Aaron, with no luck. They hear some Patriot soldiers coming down the hallway, and hide behind opposite corners. Monroe sees an exit sign, and leaves through the door, leaving Charlie to fend for herself. She is able to hide in a locker, and the soldiers don’t find her.
Miles tells Rachel he should have never let her go, and that she was always the one. Two Patriot soldiers enter the room, but Rachel shoots one dead, while the other one ducks away in the hall. Miles passes out. Rachel tries to get him to wake up.
As Aaron and Cynthia run down the hall, they run into Dr. Horn, who points his gun at them. Aaron pleads with him to let them go, but Dr. Horn demands that Aaron fix his brain tumor, or else he’ll kill Cynthia.
“Kill Them All”
Charlie comes out of the locker, and a soldier catches her. However, Monroe comes back and saves her. They are spotted by a few soldiers and run into they gym, where they hide behind debris, and heavy gunfire is exchanged. Meanwhile, Rachel holds off a couple of soldiers who try to enter the library.
Back with Aaron, he pleads for more time, but Dr. Horn says he’s out of time. Aaron calls for the kid to help him, and Dr. Horn counts to three, then shoots and kills Cynthia. Just then, the kid shows up, and Aaron asks where he was. The boy explains that Aaron told him to go away. Aaron tells him to kill Dr. Horn, and Dr. Horn bursts into flames. Then Aaron says, “Kill them all,” and all of the Patriot soldiers on the premises burst into flames. The boy wonders why Aaron didn’t just ask him to heal Cynthia. Aaron orders him to heal her. However, the boy is confused about why Aaron tells him to leave, and then to come, and to kill, and then not to kill, so the boy says he’s leaving, like Aaron wanted. Aaron yells for him to wait, but the boy is gone.
Commander Allenford reluctantly agrees to bring both Neville and Jason on his security detail, and they travel by train to the White House. Allenford reads a letter written in another language, then comes out of his compartment and asks Jason where his father is. Jason says he went up front to find out why they’re stopping. Neville looks out the window and sees his wife kissing another man. Later, Neville passes through the dining car, and makes eye contact with his wife. She meets him in the coat room, and they start making out.
After they finish up and start getting dressed, she asks if Jason is okay, and he tells her he’s here. She tells him that Atlanta started to fall, so she headed south and stayed at a house in Sandersville, and she was there when the bombs fell. Neville asks who the man she’s with is, and she says it’s her husband. Marrying him was what she had to do to survive. Neville tells her that these are the people who dropped the bombs, and he was on his way to the White House to kill the president for her. However, she tells him not to kill the president. She says he’s going to keep his job, and for now, both of them will keep their mouths shut. She says they can still get everything they wanted.
Neville brings his wife to see Jason, and introduces her as Mrs. Doyle. He says she’s a little turned around and asks Jason to help her get back to her husband.
Violet’s Thoughts on Season 2 Episode 9 of Revolution: Everyone Says I Love You
Things quickly took an interesting turn by the end of this episode. It was probably enough to make people who were already starting to be unhappy with Revolution because of the increasing sci-fi factor decide to jump ship on the show once and for all. On the other hand, those who liked the sci-fi factor, like myself, probably enjoyed this new twist involving the nanotech.
Even so, I found this episode as a whole to be a bit cheesy. Okay, that’s nice that they gave us a little more background info on Miles and Rachel’s past relationship, but to pick now of all times for them to essentially declare their undying love for one another? One might argue that it was because they thought they were going to die. But really, how many other times have their lives been in mortal danger? It just seemed a little out of the blue for them to express such strong feelings toward one another. It’s also sad to find out that Rachel was cheating on Ben, and only settled on marrying him because Miles was too honorable to continue their affair. I feel like the show has just dragged this secret relationship between Miles and Rachel on for so long that I kind of don’t care anymore.
Then there was the whole thing with Aaron and the nanotech kid. It was pretty obvious that the kid wasn’t real as soon as Aaron said that he looked familiar. However, I thought it was because the kid was actually himself. I did not guess that it was the embodiment of the nanotech. It looked like Aaron was starting to get a handle on controlling “his” powers, but it now appears that the nanotech has a mind of its own. Very frustrating, both for Aaron and for the audience, that the nanotech kid suddenly decided to leave without healing Cynthia, even though Aaron told him to. It didn’t make any sense why the nanotech would obey one order, then abruptly decide not to obey another, and to leave, in contradiction with something Aaron was saying right at that moment.
Another interesting twist was that Neville’s wife is still alive. I suppose I always thought of her as somewhat innocent, but it seems like she is just as conniving as Neville himself. I wonder what she and Neville have in store for the Patriots.
So what’s going to happen on the second half of this season? The big villain for Miles and crew, Dr. Horn, has been taken out, along with a large chunk of the Patriot soldiers under him. What about Truman, is he still around, or did he go up in flames as well? What’s going to happen to Miles and his infection? I’m thinking that Monroe and the gang can take out any remaining Patriot forces back in Willoughby, rescue Gene, and recover any medication to help save Miles – which Gene can take care of. Then my guess is that they’re going to head to Spring City, Oklahoma, to see what the nanotech kid wants with them there.
P.S. Best line of the episode: “I am Batman!” spoken by Monroe as he rescued Miles, Rachel, and Charlie. So random, but so hilarious! Literally laughed out loud.
