I must admit, lights just turning back on as if by magic gave me pause as well, I'm willing to suspend belief for the sake of the story but even for me that was really pushing it! All I could imagine is that the creators of the show just wanted that shot of the lights coming back on across the darkened globe so badly they were willing to overlook all the "picky details" that would actually make it possible.

I especially like the boom-box sitting under the counter that started playing. I assume it was supposed to be plugged in, but if there were batteries in there, there is no way it would be playing.

Guess Kim Raver is a goner, unless i missed the part where she moved far away ...

 

I think she was supposed to be in Atlanta, so I would think so...

We already saw an iPhone, which hadn't been charged in 15 years, come back to life when it was near one of the "pendants." Presumably, the explanation is that the nanites' electricity-blocking power extended to keeping batteries from discharging.

At least they had the boom box radio picking up static, rather than immediately getting a actual broadcast.

Although it's totally bogus, they were originally working on a way of distributing free energy, so maybe the nanites are now generating the electricity rather than inhibiting it.  That would be a lame excuse, but a part of me is expecting them to use it.

True. And that would actually make some sense then.

I would have loved a nod to reality in having only hydro-electric systems "come on".  Some specials I've seen suggest that, even without maintenance, dams COULD still produce some electricity - just nowhere near peak efficiency.  I think that would have made Las Vegas the new capital city what with all the hydro-power from Lake Mead.  Quebec would also be a major power source.

I thought my favorite character in this show was a goner.
