  • The power is out again and now the residents of Jericho have more trouble from some lowlifes.

    At the end of the last episode, the televisions showed a picture of the empty presidential podium. Before any answers were given, an EMP fried all the circuits and everyone was left in the dark – quite literally.

    Now, it's two weeks later, and the writers, possibly afraid of having no conflict, have brought in a pack of bandits from outside the town. Why these bad guys were left out of the story until now is a mystery, especially since they want to cause some trouble for our man Jake. How, in a town of five thousand, the same characters bump into each other and the others stay away until the plot allows them is strange, but, hey, that's TV.

    The guys from outside town are old friends of Jake and their past adventures were his reasons for leaving the town. They waited until now, almost a month after the bombs hit, to make their attacks. Why? Ploooot. Anyways, the baddies steal some of Jake's mom's horses and he goes medieval on them, like the mysterious tough nut that he is. Then the town has a harvest party. Really.

    Hawkins reveals some of his past and tells his daughter the difference between good guys and bad guys. Forgetting the bandits from earlier, he tells them there's no such thing.

    Good episode, but very family friendly, where everyone smiles and apologizes.
