T H E R E V O L U T I O N R E W A T C H - Episode 111: “THE STAND”
Miles and Charlie, along with the rest of their rag-tag group, just barely escape fire from Monroe’s helicopter. Nora, Charlie, Aaron and Danny rush to warn the Rebels that Monroe is coming to wipe them out. Miles and Rachel set off in search of another scientist, John Sanborn, who can give them better weapons to fight the Militia. Sanborn informs Rachel that Grace has been taken by Randall - and that he, too, is working for Randall. He attacks Rachel and Miles, but Miles is able to free himself, escaping with Rachel, another pendant and a rocket launcher. They arrive at the Rebel camp just in time to shoot down the choppers, but Danny is tragically killed in the fight.
Anne Cofell Saunders: “Up until this episode, the goal of the series was find Danny. We talked a lot in the writers’ room about what would be the next big emotional event that would propel our characters forward. It turned out that losing Danny was the one thing that would keep all the characters in the fight… So we really worked hard to give Danny a huge heroic send-off. Steve Boyum, the director, nailed the war movie of it all.”
