Revolution: Aaron and Miles Face The Past While Neville Contemplates His Future
Zak Orth, Elizabeth Mitchell
On Monday's Revolution, two of our heroes—and a few of our villains — will come face-to-face with ghosts from their former lives.
While Aaron (Zak Orth) has been absent from the action recently, he finally gets some much-deserved attention when he runs into Priscilla (Maureen Sebastian)— the wife he abandoned in the woods fifteen years ago. "I think that the meeting between them is definitely awkward and weird and maybe misjudged," Orth tells TVGuide.com. "You can't just walk up and be like, 'I'm really sorry.' You can't just be like, 'What's up? Wanna get back together?' But it is sort of a mixture of all those things."
Check out our recap of last week's Revolution
Before the blackout, Aaron never seemed comfortable with his hot wife's affections and showered her in luxury in the hopes of keeping her around. Of course, when the power went away (thanks a lot, Rachel!), so did Aaron's wealth. After Priscilla suffered dysentery and a near-kidnapping, Aaron decided she was better off without out him and snuck off in the middle of the night, leaving only his wedding ring and a note that read, "Sorry I couldn't provide for you."
"I think that he is torn up by guilt, obviously," Orth says. "For fifteen years he has managed to push all that down and then has to confront it to a certain extent and it tortures him." But just because Aaron has been too guilty to move on, that doesn't necessarily mean Priscilla hasn't. Don't forget that when he abandoned her, she wasn't completely alone. There was still Sean, their hot, young savior who proved much more capable in the wilderness than Aaron. "I don't think that it would be smart to assume his wife as spent the last fifteen years going 'I hope Aaron comes back,'" Orth says.

Aaron isn't the only one to encounter an old flame in "You Can't Go Home Again." Now that Monroe (David Lyons) has gone completely insane, he calls Miles (Billy Burke) back to their hometown where he holds their first love hostage. Yes, you read that right. Not his first love, their first love. 24's Annie Wersching will make her debut as Emma, Miles' former fiancé and the object of Monroe's obsession. "She plays an incredibly pivotal character in the relationship between myself and Miles and certainly the genesis of that relationship since we were teens," Lyons says.
For the second time in as many weeks, it once again falls on Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) to rescue her uncle. "Miles and Charlie both go to dark places." Spiridakos says. "They need the other one to pull each other out. ... They've developed such a bond and they're so close now that it's really one or the other that can help get them back to where they need to be."
Monday's episode will also show viewers the first glimpse of Neville (Giancarlo Esposito) since he defected from the militia. But what's a soldier to do without an army? Why, find a new cause of course! "He's hard-pressed to move on to any other organization," Esposito says. "He's been so loyal to the Monroe Republic, but it is within reach that he's going to go someplace where he can survive." Does that mean he might join up with the rebels? "I don't think they would trust him or like it, but it would create, ultimately, a very interesting dynamic between them," he says. "Between Miles and Neville, they've been in the same trenches, they've saved each other's lives, they've been together for many, many years. They know each other like soldiers should."
