Episode 2 of the newly popular J.J. Abrams program is titled "Chained Heat" and will feature a slew of flashbacks through the eyes of Captain Tom Nevill. Tim Guinee and Elizabeth Mitchell will also be featured through the past as Charlie and Danny's parents, as the back-story of the blackout's immediate aftermath will unfold in more detail.
"Revolution" creator Eric Kripke said the following to the Revolution-Show fan site regarding the flashback plot for the second installment of the hit program:
"We get to see them trying to protect their kids a week or two after the blackout, when things are really getting hairy and violence and looting are starting to break out. And as things get increasingly dangerous on the streets, it becomes a more gripping, harrowing flashback."
Kripke also touched on the realism of his characters' panic to the blackout, as he discovered that a real-life catastrophe could very well result in a similar human response. Hence, Kripke stated that "the government report we read said it would be hard to maintain any sort of civil order five days in - and that was coming out of Congress!"
"Revolution" revolves around a blackout in which the United States has lost all of its technology, which put any survivors back to basic non-technological living. With no electricity available, airplanes fall from the sky, hospitals shut down, and communication becomes almost non-existent, amongst other long-term ordeals.
The program centers on a smart and strong 18-year-old archer named Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos). Upon the death of her father, the young girl goes on a journey to find more information on the world-changing event that occurred fifteen years earlier.
During the time period following the event, people have adapted by living in simplistic communities where they grow their own food and voluntarily offer their hand to the rest of their civilization.
