I have to admit i was getting slightly bored with Jericho, gone is the tension about the bomb and all the suspicion and gone is the mystery surrounding some characters. With that i thought it was going to fail, and the first half of this episode confirmed this for me. I didnt care about any of the charcters any more, it all seemed a bit boring. However the entire scenes within the hospital and operating room were brilliant. It was tense and heartbreaking at the same time, something i didnt think they would do with it (i had a feeling they would go with the happy ending with everyone ok and april alive)
Hopefully Jericho keeps like this now (maybe drop some other mysteries in) but the human survival element is what is keeping this show great.
A bit of coldplay always helps aswell
