As Revolution rolled through its early episodes, it was easy to feel a bit of Lost-ispired deja vu. With a huge mystery at its core — why did every electronic device stop working 15 years before? — it was easy to assume that, if it lasted longer than a season, the show would keep kicking that question further down the line, holding any definitive answers back for the final season. Instead, creator Eric Kripke promised what caused the blackout would be revealed sooner rather than later. And sure enough, we got the answer shortly after the show returned from a mid-season hiatus. In its second half, the big quest became to find a way to “turn the lights back on,” and they did precisely that in the finale. But with season 2 set to premiere tonight, Kripke says Revolution’s characters are going to have too many other problems on their hands to be worrying much about electricity this year.
