This was a great episode to follow up last week's flash back episode. Last week, we had some holes filled that concern the past. This week, we had some progression in the story line...some major progression. It was particularly interesting to get news from the outside world. It is evident that not only Jericho is having trouble.
We learn that there are six people claiming to be president...SIX! That makes for a great story! The writers have created a great situation where they can develop some extensive story lines that will entertain us for years, I presume. This episode also had some action that was helpful to make up for some of the slower moment. This episode also had a significant amount of character development.
