  • Another exciting journey with something for everyone.

    Aside from the storyline with Gail and Mary, which was conspicuously awkward, this episode was a blast. It had something for everyone: answers, questions, love story, ravings that could possibly be construed as proof of alien life...what's not to love?

    The core of this episode was the party sent to the fairgrounds to retrieve a key item--another compelling quest episiode. The motley crew of unpredictable Jericho residents dealt exceptionally well with the extreme conditions at the trading post (at first), and they were rewarded with new information about the state of the union, as well as the possibility of future trades.

    This setting also provided fertile ground for character development, especially in the case of Dale, who seems to be fostering a new independence--and not necessarily in a good way. Still, his increasing similarities to Jake become even more intriguing in this episode. The Hawkins family situation--especially the mother-son and father-daughter relationships--is becoming more and more complicated. Add into the mix Heather's temporary departure, and the characters and their relationships are bound to become even more fascinating later in the season.
