'Revolution': Charlie Learns What Miles' Role Was In The Formation Of The Monroe Republic (VIDEO)

Charlie finally learned her Uncle Miles' connection to Monroe on "Revolution." And flashbacks revealed even more of their relationship shortly after the blackout. There it was revealed that while Monroe was reluctant to kill or even get involved in the affairs of others, Miles took it upon himself to police the populace, acting as judge, jury and executioner.

He revealed to Charlie that the reason the militia is so very dangerous is because he created them. "I trained them, and they are brutal, and smart and vicious because of me," he explained. "When you see them coming, you don’t fight. You run.”

It was a major emotional reveal, but was it enough? Critics worry that the show is slowing down too much this early in its run. TV Fanatic felt the episode was "mostly plotless, but fun," which The Wall Street Journal agreed with.

Does "Revolution" need to stay focused, or is it alright to have these fun, character diversions? Tune in to new episodes every Monday at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.
