Jericho Episode 8 – Rogue River

Here is the eighth 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.



Mayor Green is in a desperate situation and needs medicine which is unavailable in Jericho. Eric and Jake take off for Rogue River where there is a hospital. The hope is they can find the necessary drugs to save their father. After arrival it is discovered that a team of mercenaries have taken over the hospital. Eric and Jake run into trouble getting the needed drugs.

This was an action packed episode.



Jericho’s continues to show how the absence of modern services can mean the difference between life and death. Risk assessment is featured as the trip to Rogue River is decided on. What would have happened if Eric and Jake had been captured or killed? Of course Mayor Green would have died but additionally the resources in Jericho would have been diminished. Risk assessment will become a much bigger deal than in the comfortable conditions we live today.

Hawkins continues to be under suspicion. Paranoia –  and possibly rightly so – will increase dramatically under SHTF conditions and change people’s judgements. These changes may be for the better depending on the situation.
