Jericho Season 2 Review, part 1

After the attacks and the fight for survival in Season 1, things now get
down to rebuilding in Season 2.


Memorable Line: "What happened with the flag?"

The Jericho/New Bern battle is crushed in a decisive manner and normality is
restored. Why is this reconstruction so ominous. A goodish start to the
final season. Beck is an interesting addition to the cast.


The self declared President visits Jericho and gives an ominous speech
renaming the country the Allied States of America and flying the new flag.
Hawkins plots. A reporter dies mysteriously after he and Jake have a candid
talk. There is talk of UN peacekeepers on patrol on the border between the
ASOA and the old USA. In the final scene, Ravenwood returns to Jericho.

Jennings & Rall

Everyone is disgusted that Ravenwood are back in town after their spree of
murdering and looting last season. Jake reveals that Ravenwood is the
mercenary arm of the Jennings & Rall corporation. He knows this because in
his 5 year exile from Jericho, he worked for Ravenwood. In fact he and some
other J&R mercenaries shot up a town in Iraq during said exile. Jake's
mysterious past is now revealed after all the hints in season 1. After
Ravenwood impounds the vaccine for the lethal Hudson River virus, things get
ugly. An okay ep, Jake looks good despite the fact he has spent the season
so far looking like he needs a shower.


Memorable Line: "This is not Red Dawn!"

Teen smugglers Dale and Skyler get called on their smuggling, extortion and
criminality by Jennings & Rall. With Dale headed for a Maximum Security
prison, Jake takes action. Meanwhile after J&R issues the new currency Mimi
discovers someone is embezzling from J&R. So Ravenwood goons show up at the
farmhouse and gun down her and Bonnie. Good.
