"It’s like ‘The Matrix’."
nbc revolutionDreamcatcherCharlie MathesonAaron PittmanAaron + Charlie2.15GIF setmineI love that Tracy FINALLY got to do a Pop Culture reference. Coz Charlie was practically a baby when the power went out. Unless a situationsimilar to Dora the Explorer or Sesame Street comes up she's got nothing to contribute. And that's sad.And I love her hair. It flies really well - like a cloak of hair. I know people think she should wear it up for missions and fighting and the but I love that she always has it down. And maybe she doesn't own any hairties and it doesn't bother her. Because then her neck doesn'tget burned. She does spend a hell of a lot of time outside. And I have a weird thing about running - everyone looks more attractive running.And this whole episode would be very good material for an Inception!Revolution vid. (I wish I had the skill to make one...and the time)(BTW you may have noticed I move the text around from gifset to gifset. I can't decide where I like it. So sometimes it ends up in weirdplaces. I am sorry. But not sorry enough to go back and change it...especially because that wouldn't change it 'everywhere'.)And since I'm rambling - can I just point out that I think Charlie just killed the last Ginger haird person in Revolution (reality or not).The only one before Diego (OMG every time I type it I can hear poor Palek shouting it) was Emma - right? So what happened to them all?Did they form their own society away from the savages? Move to a small island with lots of shade? (I've always loved red hair so I usuallylook out for it. Red hair and green eyes. Having both is like - mystical.This episode really worked for me because I wasn't dragged between plotlines (unwillingly in most cases because watching Riles not!datingor belittling Bass or watching faceless nameless Patriots wander around pretending they're working or The endless Neville catastrophesand trying to pretend it's all relevant and I care - when I really want to get back to Charlie or Charlie and Bass or whatever is super tiresome) and I had time to really see the elements within each of the characters arise and play out in a different setting.The tone wasn't light exactly - it was tense I didn't know how it was going to end - but it was Meta. It was an adventure into whereAaron stands and WITH WHO. And I don't think he'd realised how much he relys on knowing they're all out there. Waiting.And I loved him being the centre of this storyline because the WAY he gathers them to him - it's like they're Superheroes in his eyes. THEYsave the day. He needs them to be who they are in reality because he doesn't see himself as strong ENOUGH. Stubborn yes. Every day inevery way. But he was my age when the power went out. His whole identity was stripped from him that day. And life with the Mathesonshas FORCED him to stand up. To figure out what he can and cannot live with. But he still lacks the confidence to take the lead.
