Jericho Episode 2 – “Fallout”


That iconic morse code audio leads the viewer into episode 2. Storm clouds coming from the direction of the nuclear blast are seen by Jake and Hawkins and the alert is sent up. The town scrambles to find shelter for its citizens and communicate the coming threat of fallout to all.

Issues develop as the old Civil Defense fallout shelter under the Medical Center is a wreck and it’s air filtration system inoperable. Meanwhile Emily Sullivan(Jake’s old girlfriend) has run out of gas on her way to pick up her fiance – and is oblivious to the situation. She is picked up by two fake police officers and she guides them to the Richmond Ranch.

Things happen fast. People get evacuated to the one working shelter under Town Hall while the Medical Center shelter cannot be repaired. The decision is made to bus people to the local salt mines and shelter in place there.

Hawkins displays some suspicious activity.

A dangerous situation develops at the Richmond Ranch with the two fake police officers who are actually escaped prisoners. Jake leaves the safety of the mines and heads to the Richmond Ranch after hearing Emily sending out a distress call on a police radio.


Great episode that highlights just how unprepared most people and towns are to handle a significant disaster. Episode 2 highlights how the absence of normal communication methods can mean the difference between life and death. The town and its people are making decisions on guesses and theories. Even the simple weather forecast we all take for granted could mean the difference between life and death in Jericho.

Don’t forget to watch Episode 3 next Tuesday night.
