Jericho Episode 3: Four Horseman

Here is the third of a weekly installment discussing an episode of the popular TV series – Jericho – which aired originally back in 2006. Every Tuesday night we are watching an episode and then will discuss what happens the following day. It can be watched free on Netflix or purchased on VUDU. Jericho is also available on DVD.


Jericho Episode 3 – “Four Horseman”


The rain everyone was seeking shelter from in Episode 2 has arrived. Hawkins conducts a mysterious maneuver in the rain wearing an NBC suit.  The escaped prisoners at the ranch are no longer a threat. Emily, Jake and the others wait in the basement for the rain to stop and wonder the condition of Stanley. Tensions in the mine rise with each passing moment. Mayor Green’s sickness is becoming more serious.

Once the rain ends and people come out the questions remain – What has happened? Who did this? Is help coming?

Jake pushes his idea of sending people out in different directions to gather information. Four parties are selected and they head out – including Jake and local political businessman Gray Anderson.

During his travels Jake comes across a large airliner that used a highway as a landing strip. The townspeople cook all remaining perishable food due to no refrigeration with a big Mainstreet party.


Great episode and from a preparedness perspective some key points hit me:

  • Shelter is important. In this episode protection from potential radioactive fallout was needed. Protection from the cold winter weather or something else entirely could be next.
  • Communication is critical. The entire town is stressed not only over a mushroom cloud going off but what the future holds. Just a bit of information from a Chinese TV broadcast has everyone theorizing what happened and who did it. 
  • At the very end of the episode Dale discovers a train sitting idle on nearby tracks. He is searching for supplies. Something to consider is that supplies can be found in a variety of places.
  • Keeping your head is important. These are stressful times in Jericho and those that can think and rationalize are doing better.

Don’t forget to watch Episode 4 next Tuesday night.
