It's a lot easier to keep your secrets when the world has been plunged into darkness. But, sooner or later, they get out anyway. NBC's post-doomsday adventure series Revolution — about the fight to reestablish America in the years after a worldwide blackout — continues tonight with startling revelations about Miles Matheson, the moody, Han Solo-esque swordsman played by Billy Burke.
"This is the episode where the audience will finally understand why we're calling our show Revolution," creator Eric Kripke says. "We've set up our chessboard and are about to have the first battle in the ongoing war between the Monroe militia and the rebel freedom fighters. With that comes a big bombshell. So far, all we know about Miles is that he's a real badass. Now we find out why."

What caused the blackout? That's what everyone who watched Revolution's record-breaking premiere last week wants to know — even the series' own stars! Elizabeth Mitchell (Rachel) and Giancarlo Esposito (Capt. Neville) talked to TVGuide.com about their theories on what turned off the lights...

Lots of reunions are coming up on Revolution. Mark Pellegrino, Todd Stashwick and Colin Ford will all join former Supernatural showrunner (and Revolution creator) Eric Kripke on the new NBC series this fall, TVLine reports.

I can't say I was surprised that the premiere of Revolution Monday night left me with far more questions than answers (after all, the series is produced by Lost mastermind J.J. Abrams). Whether or not the NBC drama will actually resolve all these mysteries is something we'll have to wait and see. Until then, here are the 20 biggest questions that will be...
Where were you when the lights went out?
That scenario, which has been played for comedy in the past, is the stuff of escapist fantasy-adventure in the more appealing and promising of two new network dramas premiering tonight. NBC's heavily hyped Revolution (10/9c) follows a long line of high-concept quick fades including The Event (same network, same night), Terra Nova (same night, different network), FlashForward, V, Alcatraz and so on. Will this make the grade where so many others failed?
Many shows have fallen victim to the three most cursed words in recent TV history: "the next Lost." Ever since the island drama debuted in 2005, networks have been scrambling to re-create the series' irresistible combination of poignant drama and the bizarre supernatural. Unfortunately, most shows that try to fill those shoes — FlashForward, The Event and Alcatraz, to name three — have floundered within just a season. Does NBC's latest foray into sci-fi mystery genre, Revolution, have what it takes to break the curse?

Last fall, eight of the top 10 shows added to Watchlist were picked up for a full season. Coincidence -- or are TVGuide.com users just that savvy at picking winners? And will they have the same Midas touch this year?
