On tonight’s midseason finale of Revolution, not only did we have a death — bye, Cynthia — but a resurrection…sorta. In the episode, Neville discovered that his thought-to-be-dead wife, Julia (Kim Raver) was actually alive after spotting her while, of all places, boarding the train to Washington, D.C. Shocking? You bet. But also part of the plan all along, according to executive producer Eric Kripke. “We always knew from the beginning that we wanted the midseason twist in Neville’s story to be that Julia appears,” he says. “And, of course, we heard, much to our anxiety, that she was going to be going back to 24, but she was very gracious and had a window where she could work with us for multiple episodes.”
That’s right; the former Mrs. Neville is sticking around for a while. “She has a multi-episode arc and then, ultimately, she has to go back to 24. But her enthusiasm for Julia and her drive to make it work in her schedule to come back and play the character again was greatly appreciated,” he says.
So what comes next? Lots of planning and power play. “Well, what we love about Julia and what Kim has done with the character is that she kind of out Nevilles Neville,” he says. “She’s every bit of cunning and conniving as her husband, if not more so. So her arc is really going to be about the two of them strategizing to place themselves in the highest most powerful position possible.”
