The episode begins with Monroe (David Lyons) learning that the Nevilles have snuck out of town and that their son has been seen alive. Monroe is clearly becoming paranoid and kills the Captain who bears the bad news to him because he was Neville's aide. Monroe also looks to be finding solace in alcohol. I hope that this is not the beginning of the end for Monroe as I’ve very much enjoyed Lyons. I’m still hoping they’ve got more for him to do other than simply unraveling and that we’ll see him reunited with Miles (Billy Burke) in flashbacks and in ‘present’ day.
The episode is, however, populated with interesting women. The Governor proves to be a good leader who has both protected her people and made the economy grow while fostering international relations with England. I felt bad that had Maggie ever made it to Georgia, she might have been able to reunite with her family. Interestingly, the Governor also has a history with Miles. It seems likely that they had a relationship at some point in the past. I am getting a little weary of Miles having – apparently – slept with every woman we meet.
Next week’s episode looks intense. It looks like we are quickly moving toward another kind of "revolution." What did you think of this episode? Should Miles agree to become a General? Should the Rebels join forces with them? Did you want to know more about the mysterious Jane Warren and her super weapon? Let me know in the comments below.
