The NBC series Revolution has been following the character of Charlie and her search to find her brother Danny who was captured by the militia.
For all of you Revolution fans out there who don’t want to know upcoming events, TURN BACK NOW, we’ve got a MAJOR SPOILER ahead.
During a Revolution conference call on Thursday with executive producer Eric Kripke, The Deadbolt asked Kripke how long he felt the Charlie’s (Tracy Spiridakos) quest for Danny (Graham Rogers) could continue before he and the writers needed to shake things up.
As we’ve seen in the past on other sci-fi shows, fans often grow tired of a long quest without a payoff. As it turns out, that won’t be the case on Revolution when it comes to Danny.
“We can keep that quest going until episode 10,” Kripke admitted, “and then we shake things up. They catch up to Danny in episode 10 and we climax that story because you can’t keep that story going.”
As we’ve seen so far on Revolution, the search for Danny has been the central motivating factor for Charlie over the course of the first four episodes. For many, the search for Danny appeared to be a season long story.
Did Eric Kripke and the Revolution team always plan on taking the Danny storyline in a different direction?
“We never had any intention to keep the search for Danny going forever,” Kripke continued. “It was only a way to bring the audience into the world and introduce the characters with a nice, clean and simple storyline as the prologue to a much bigger story. I’d say by episode 10 we will have played that prologue out and it’s time to begin the next chapter of the show and it’s time to explore much more why the show is in fact titled Revolution.”
There you have it Revolution fans, the search for Danny will be over by episode 10. How do you feel about the show taking a new direction?
