I really enjoyed the show.
Monroe is one of my favorite anti-heroes. Monroe, Miles and Rachel on the road together could have been a volatile situation. Rachel expressed her anger succinctly when she commented about helping Monroe find his son after he killed hers.
Monroe is quick to take matters into his own hands when the others are not responding quickly enough for him. He was typical "Monroe" when he got rid of the drivers of the wagon and told the other passengers to enjoy their stay in Mexico.
I wonder if we will see an alliance between Monroe and his son, Connor. The previews did not make that seem likely, but stranger alliances have formed on Revolution.
Grandpa still has not comprehended the life his daughter and granddaughter have lived. I liked the way Charlie asked him what did he think she was going to do when he asked for her help. That left him speechless.
Aaron lives! The Springfield/largest ball of twine has been mentioned in conversations throughout the episodes so I think the show always planned for something very important to happen there.
Grace! Am I the only one who wondered what happened to Grace?
More importantly, what was being injected into the oranges? There is no limit to the deviousness of the Patriots.
I agree, Anti, it was a good episode. Not great but compelling. I thought Miles sure healed up quickly from what should have been a really life threatening affliction. Just putting some maggots on a blood infected arms heals you in less than a day. I want Grandpa for my doctor!
Monroe was a little short on recognizing his son....who looks remarkably like him. But his son doesn't seem to want to have anything to do with him. Will Bas regret leaving the fireside to try to convince his son to "rule with him" in a new Monroe republic. Seems likely since the previews for next week see him strung up by some ropes!
Aaron runs away again. How does he stay so....well-nourished....after so much time on his own? He doesn't seem like the hunter/killer type to me. I love his character, though. Wonder what he'll find in the city. Was that his dead girlfriend in next week's preview? Or did he say it was his wife?
Tom and his wife are up to their old tricks. Trying to do anything to gety to what they see is the top of the heap. What did their son see on that paper he took out of the folder? Whatever it was, he looked mighty concerned.
Nope, it's back as of last Monday. Suggest you update your DVR or watching schedule. Next new episode is this coming Monday, Jan. 13.
I'll look more closely at what was recorded when I turn on the TV tonight. If it's the newer TiVo it'll be all right because there's not much on there. But I would surely have seen a warning on the older one.
Tom's wife sure is pretty. I'm glad they told us what happened previously because I'd have forgotten who she was.
How does the White House look so good? Interesting how it looked on the outside. You can do anything with CGI!
Now this is irony. The Mexican dream. Americans crossing the border illegally. Something I never thought about: the entire border with Texas is the Rio Grande. I saw a river AFTER they crossed. How DO you cross?
We were promised Aaron would be a big part of the episode but I don't recall more than a few seconds when he was even on.

I did appreciate the irony of people illegally crossing into Mexico. I thought there would be more irony of people living in a modern and civilized way, but they chose to portray the town as filled with drugs and other illicit activities. I did not like that, but I still enjoyed the episode.
Aaron had an important role, but he certainly was not in the episode long. That ties into my earlier comment that the episode was spread out into multiple physical locations.

They were more surprised with the town being like that than I was.
