Recap: Revolution S 1 E 8 Ties That Bind

Directed by Guy Bee
Written by David Rambo and Melissa Glenn

When Nora encounters her sister, she must make a difficult choice between family and her promise to Charlie and Miles. However, when she learns that her sister is actually a bounty hunter and has made a secret deal with the militia to deliver Miles to them, she rejoins Miles' band to help them escape the ambush. Meanwhile, one of the most ruthless members of the militia, Strausser, is tracking Miles, Charlie and the gang. General Monroe hands Major Neville a stern warning. The locations of numerous pendants are revealed on a working computer screen in the unknown location where Randall is holding Grace prisoner.

Flashbacks: Nora is shown to have been a teenager at the time of the blackout, as well as having a younger sister. Living in Texas shortly after the blackout, the two flee the home of their mother for their father's home in Galveston, Texas. When they arrive, their father is nowhere to be found. They make a pact to always be there for each other.

Tropes (See Your Mileage May Vary items here):

  • Adult Fear: Nora and Mia Clayton were only teenagers when the blackout occurred. They had to hide when a stranger broke in and killed their mother. They went to their father's home, but he wasn't there, and he hasn't been seen since.
  • The Dreaded: Sergeant William Strausser. Even Badass Miles Matheson is scared of this guy.
  • It's All About Me: Mia Clayton. She pretty much did nothing except whine over and over again about how much she missed her sister Nora and that they should only be looking out for themselves.
