Revolution returns with new episodes this Wednesday (February 26), and to get our audience ready for what happens next, we visited the Texas shooting location for the series and talked to members of the cast, in interviews you will find here on KSiteTV in the coming days and weeks.
A lot of interest came our way about the romantic entanglements of Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos), who recently slept with Sebastian Monroe’s son Connor (Mat Vairo) and may have a reunion with Jason (JD Pardo) in the near future. Tracy spoke with us a bit about what’s going on with a possible Charlie-Connor-Jason love triangle.
“With Connor, and as you see after the whole sex thing happens, she sits down with him and she’s just like ‘only if you care.’ She’s very just ‘whatever’ about it. It’s a fling. It’s not a big deal. And then all of the sudden, this bomb comes in and she sees Jason, and there’s a lot of anger there from her. He’s tried to kill them a few times. That’s a little bit of a problem! And so she’s mad, but he’s still her first love, and he’s still that person for her. I see Jason as somebody who she’s afraid to trust him, because she doesn’t trust herself with him. Because whatever it is with him, she’ll kind of do it, and she’ll get herself into trouble,” Tracy said, before reminiscing about what the situation was like in Season 1. “Year one, there was always Miles going like ‘your boyfriend did this’ and she’s like ‘Damn it! I did it again! I trusted him! Ahh!’ So I think that’s a big part of why she holds back with him. It’s interesting to see [it] happen, but as far as which way she goes, I will not tell you that,” she teased.
Despite the difference in age, Revolution fans have also been interested in Charlie’s relationship with another character — Sebastian Monroe, played by David Lyons. What did Tracy Spiridakos have to say about that?
“I think that the Charlie and Monroe relationship is really interesting, for me,” Tracy said. “There’s so much anger and hatred there, but they say the opposite of love is indifference, right? So when you despite somebody, there’s a lot of passion that’s there, when you hate somebody very passionately. I don’t think that it’s a sexual passion; I think there’s just something that she just — and he’s responsible for so many things that went wrong in her life. And then there’s another giant pill to swallow, because here he is, and you’ve got to get over all of the things that he’s done. He’s on your team now, and you have to deal with it.”
“I don’t really know where they stand,” she continued. “He saved her life and he does all these good things at the beginning, and then he kind of goes to Jerkville for a little bit, dabbles there, and then comes back. So, I think she just kind of handles him with great care. There’s a lot of caution there.”
