Jericho Episode 9 – Crossroads

Here is the ninth 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 mercenaries from Rogue River are on the way.  Ravenwood arrives outside of town at the Richmond Ranch. Stanley’s confrontation with them ends peacefully and he bolts to town to tell Jake. The men of Jericho decide to take a stand at the bridge leading into town. Jake and Eric disagree on a plan to blow the bridge to stop the mercenaries.

Emily struggles as today is the day she was supposed to marry Roger.



A couple things I took from this episode:

  • Someone has to take charge of those who need it. Hawkins and Jake take the lead on the bridge to establish barriers and organize the security force.
  • Tough decisions have to be made. Both Jake and Eric make tough decisions and are confident they are right.
  • Flares. Although radio’s are a great way to communicate there could be reasons they may not be able to be used. A flare is used to signal Ravenwood was coming. Not a bad idea to put back a few flare guns and extra flares.
  • Networking is critically important. Going it alone isn’t likely to lead to a high level of success.
  • A bottle of Scotch can lead to a good time.

As what was commented last week I was surprised the armament on the bridge was not more “modern” with at least some AR’s. Of course remember this was 2006 and the popularity and ownership of modern “black rifles” was not back then what it is today.

Firearms and knowing how to use them is of paramount importance.
