The Revolution season finale flipped the switch before leaving us on a cliffhanger and several contentious issues. Here’s what we observed down at “The Dark Tower”.
- Grace confirms that Aaron’s code runs the Tower’s operating system – explaining why he was in Dr. Warren’s spell book and why he’s something of a celebrity in Tower Other circles.
- She goes on to reveal that MIT sold it to the D.O.D. without his knowledge, confirming that Ben later befriended him because he was the architect (presumably as a precaution), thus contextualizing his motivations for giving Aaron the magical pendant in the Pilot.
RACE TO LEVEL 12
- As expected, Randall wasn’t killed off-screen. He resurfaces in Cheney’s bunker to retrieve a key card hidden behind the George Bush photo. So that’s why the camera lingered on it last time out.
- I can only assume the Tower Others didn’t know about this hiding place considering they didn’t show any interest at all in Cheney’s bunker. Randall may have hid it there pre-blackout, unless it’s protocol to hide key cards behind presidential photos.
- Rachel gives Grace a chance to join her in
setting the world on fireturning the power back on, before knocking her out and grabbing her key card. All stairwells lead to Level 12 (except those on Level 1!).
- You’d think the Tower Others would be more cautious with handing out those key cards. Though in fairness, they appear to open all locked doors in the Tower, making it slightly less of a contrivance that Grace had one (if you ignore the contrivance of an all access system).
