Here is the eleventh 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.
Emily’s father is blamed for Gracie’s murder. The townspeople are out for revenge at the prodding of Gray Anderson – the newly elected mayor. Jonah is caught and set to be killed but Jake intervenes with a compelling case of morality.
Hawkins attempts to separate himself from whatever organization he is involved with.
The episode ends with Jake and Emily getting ready to kiss(go Jake!!) when they are interrupted due to a large crowd walking up through the center of town. A surprise guest is among them.
A couple things to consider:
- Continued wasteful use of electricity though I think it was done for morale reasons.
- What to do with criminals is certainly something to consider. In this episode the new Mayor is judge and jury. Some type of jury or group to look at all the evidence would be the minimum to deal with criminals.
- The episode ends with a group of refugees entering town. These additional people represent a massive security risk and potential drain on limited resources.
Lastly – Gray distributed all the food from the supply drop as his first action after being elected. Dumb move as those supplies should have been used as a last resort as winter is coming.
