  • Suicide Mission: Deliberately done. His mission was to get the power back on and nuke the two most militarily troublesome successor governments to the USA.

  • The Stoic: She remains calm and collected throughout the hard times depicted in the show.

Julia Neville

Played by: Kim Raver

Tom Neville's beloved wife, Julia has stayed by her husband's side all the way through the post-blackout world. She now enjoys a position of some importance as the wife of a respected military man. However, she also harbours secret ambitions to elevate herself and her family further.

  • The Bus Came Back: Was not in Atlanta when the nuclear strike took place, and ended up a refugee until a marriage of convenience with a high-ranking Patriot official. She is now working with Neville again on the down-low to bring down the President.

  • Social Climber: Has aspirations of this.
  • Start of Darkness: At the same time as her husband.
  • Your Cheating Heart: Revealed by Jason while coming down from mind-control drugs administered by the Patriots. He may have been saying it to mess with his father, though. It's played straighter when she instantly cheats on her new husband with Neville when she finds out he's alive.

  • Jerkass: He makes it very clear that he hates Neville, and even tells him to h
  • Properly Paranoid: Cooke doesn't trust Tom Neville, and makes no secret of it. He's absolutely right to distrust him.
