Jericho Episode 5: Federal Response

Here is the fifth 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.



The power comes back on which causes a fire in the town’s library. Emily is electrocuted. A frantic rescue effort takes place at the library and Emily survives. The fire spreads across the community and Eric loses his house – just as he is about to end his marriage. Jake and Hawkins team up in an effort to fight the fire and tensions – and suspicions – between them grow.

While government messages suddenly come across TV’s and computers Hawkins seems to be able to bypass internet blocks and gains access to more information. There is no doubt Hawkins knows a lot more than he is saying.

This is the most action packed episode so far.

The episode ends in dramatic fashion with missiles heading into the sky.




Great episode. A couple things about this episode struck me. First and most obvious is fire. Without the normal service of a local fire department even the smallest fire can turn disastrous. Fire extinguishers should most certainly be a fundamental prep however more substantial systems should be considered.

The second thing is teamwork. When things got rough people came together and fought to put the fires out. The “lone prepper” will have serious problems in any serious situation.

Those that haven’t watched past episode 5 I’ll leave comments regarding the very end until next week.
