“Revolution” Season 2 and Series Finale Episode 22 “Declaration of Independence” Recap:
“Revolution” Season 2 and Series Finale Episode 22 “Declaration of Independence” is directed by Charles Beeson and written by Rockne S. O’Bannon.
The episode began with the continued celebration of The Memorial Day concert in Willoughby’s Town Hall. The gathering went wrong when the Patriots chained the doors to gas them.
The tyrant President Jack Davis (Cotter Smith), Truman (Steven Culp) and their group were sent to a safer place. Truman thought of injuring himself and the other patriots, blaming the event to the innocent posse of Miles (Billy Burke).
Everyone including Monroe (David Lyons) wanted to end it all by killing the President, but Miles thought otherwise. Neville (Giancarlo Esposito) was on his way to ambushing Davis’ convoy until he learned that Monroe already got Davis. They were immediately captured by Neville.
Miles has only one choice and its to trust his former friend, Monroe in keeping Davis safe. It was revealed that Neville tapped Connor (Mat Vairo) and Scanlon (Billy Lush) in doing the dirty deed. Fortunately, Monroe stopped them. They escaped from their attempt and Davis was now held by General Blanchard.
Elsewhere, Priscilla (Maureen Sebastian) has been controlled by a nano. She has started hurting Aaron (Zak Orth) and Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell) when they tried to electrocute the nano out of her. The good thing is that the she got the upper hand over the nano’s control. Unfortunately, she learned that their battle with the nanites is not over yet, but has just begun.
