First Look: Revolution Scares Up Halloween

A world without power is a terrifying enough concept, but the denizens of Revolution‘s dystopia have grown so accustomed to the horror that they’re not afraid to celebrate Halloween. In the Oct. 16 episode, Rachel and the folks of Willoughby, Texas, try to show the town’s kids that life does go on. “There’s a homespun feel to it,” says co-executive producer Anne Cofell Saunders, who also co­wrote the episode. “If you watch carefully, you’ll see that when kids wear an old Darth Vader or Tweety Bird mask, the costume is mismatched. They don’t know the pop-culture references.”

For Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell) and Aaron (Zak Orth), the psychological scars from indirectly ­assisting in a nuclear strike on Atlanta and Philadelphia — and, in Aaron’s case, dying and being brought back to life — are still fully in evidence. Says Saunders, “The town’s Halloween celebration ­becomes an eerie backdrop for the drama going on in their lives.” — Additional reporting by Michael Logan
