Jericho Ep 9 - Nov 15th - Crossroads post #1  quote:



8 AM and an alarm clock radio wakes Emily Sullivan up. Roger Hammond is with Emily and they are discussing the wedding. Roger is talking about living in the city and that his parents live in New York and may not adjust well visiting Jericho. Emily tells Roger that when they are married that she still wants to live in Jericho. Roger then asks her if she?s sure that is what she wants (it?s not completely clear if he is referring to the marriage or where they will live when he says that)?..then Emily calls out his name ?Roger, Roger!? and then she wakes up. It was all a dream.

Bonnie Richmond is alerted by some noises outside and wants to go out and check on it. Stanley Richmond walks outside with a rifle and he can see some Ravenwood troops filling up his vehicle with gas. He says that he works for the federal government and they are there get medical supplies and food. Stanley confronts the men and Goetz says that he?s there to look for Eric Green and that he will reimburse him for the gas that he?s taken. He thanks Stanley and then leaves.

Eric Green comes downstairs to find Jake still holding a gun waiting. Eric starts to talk to Jake Green about the 5 years he was away but then Jake quickly changes the subject and asks Eric how it went with April Green and if he spoke to her about Mary. There is a knock on the door and Eric goes to answer it. It?s Bonnie, Mimi Clark and Stanley and they tell them about the guys showing up at his farm in Hummers and guns. Jake and Eric know that it?s Ravenwood.

Jake and Eric are telling Jimmy, Gray Anderson, Robert Hawkins and the rest about Ravenwood. Jake tells Stanley to leave his farm and to come into town temporarily, the group decides to fortify the town and build up a resistance at the bridge.

April and Gail are watching over Johnston. April has good news about Johnston and says that his blood pressure is stabilizing and that Johnston is getting better. April still hasn?t spoken to Eric about the baby and she?s worried about how Eric will take the news. She?s having trouble telling Eric about the baby because she?s afraid of bad timing. Gail tells April that the timing couldn?t be better.

Jake is with Robert Hawkins and they are on the bridge, Robert is asking Jake about his run in with Ravenwood and questions what happened between Jake and the group at Rouge River. They have a minor argument but Jake says he didn?t lead them to Jericho on purpose and that he wants to protect his family.

Emily is looking in the mirror holding up her wedding dress. Heather Lisinski knocks on the door and walks in with some flowers. Heather said she wanted to acknowledge her wedding day with the flowers but hopes it is not weird. Heather planned a day to keep Emily?s mind occupied.

Robert and Jake continue to talk about Ravenwood and they are using cars to fortify the bridge. Jake comes to the conclusion that Robert has experience with Ravenwood himself.

April stops Eric and tells him that she needs to talk to him. April says that when she had the divorce papers drafted she couldn?t see a future and now she can, but before April can say anything else Eric tells April that he is in love with someone else. Eric finally tells April that he?s in love with Mary Bailey. April gets really upset and walks away crying.

Ravenwood is approaching and the group is getting behind the cars and aiming their weapons. Jake and Robert are on the front lines. The apparent leader of Ravenwood, Goetz steps out and says that they are under government order to collect supplies. One of the men behind the car shoots his gun and then there is gunfire back and forth from the town members of Jericho and Ravenwood. Goetz orders a ?cease fire? and then demands that the bridge be clear or he will come back and clear it himself.
Jake and Robert conclude that they will have to take out the bridge because they will not be able to hold it if Ravenwood comes back with reinforcements.

Jake proposes that the bridge will have to be taken out. Robert, Gray and Jake agree but Eric disagrees with losing the bridge. Eric feels like it will cut the town off from the outside world but Gray is worried about Ravenwood now. Eric refuses to take the bridge out and says that the answer is no and orders Bill to lock up the dynamite.

Heather is trying to spend time with Emily to keep her mind off of her wedding day. Heather warns Emily that if she leaves the motor running that the truck could explode. Emily starts to daydream. She is in her wedding dress and Heather is dressed up as well and the town seems normal again.
Heather comes out and catches Emily daydreaming with the motor still running. Heather turns the car off and tells Emily that the roads are blocked but they are going to keep themselves busy with another plan.

Robert is going to round up supplies to make explosives because Gray has decided to blow the bridge anyway. Jake is going to venture on the other side to warn people that the bridge will be blown and to come to the other side and into town.

Heather and Emily are at Bailey?s bar and Mary has a drink for them. Heather thinks that they should spend some time having a few drinks. Dr. Kenchy is at the bar drinking and has been there since he?s been in town.

At the bridge Robert and Jimmy are wiring explosives. Jake goes to Stanley?s farm and is trying to get Bonnie, Mimi and Stanley to come over to the other side but Stanley doesn?t want to leave; Bonnie wants to stay too. Stanley wants to fight for his farm but Jake warns him that if he stays he will be completely on his own.

Stanley is still in his home and Bonnie does not want to leave. Stanley says he can?t force her to leave. Mimi doesn?t understand why they won?t leave but she is leaving.

Heather and Emily are drinking shots at the bar. Heather says ?hi? to Dr. Kenchy and he sits next to Emily and starts a conversation. He makes a toast to privacy and they drink a shot. Emily asks Kenchy how bad it is out there and he says that there is poverty, murder and disease and that he?s drunk and hasn?t slept in weeks. Emily hasn?t slept in a long time either.

Eric can see that Gray has taken the dynamite away and that they have decided to blow the bridge even though he said no.
Eric wants to talk to Mayor Johnston Green and he is confronted by Gail Green. Gail is upset that Eric has slept with Mary and does not want to be with April anymore. Johnston is up and he?s talking to Eric about the plans to blow the bridge. Johnston is completely against blowing the bridge as well and tells Eric to stop them.

Jake and Robert continue to wire the bridge with help. Eric shows up and says that Johnston wants them to stop. Eric is going out on the other side of the bridge with a truck and Jake is warning him not to leave because he?ll be cut off.

Jake can see a launched flare and knows that Ravenwood is coming. Jake tells everyone to get off the bridge and to get as far away as they can. Jake nods to Robert Hawkins and Robert nods back to Jake.

Heather and Mary are playing darts at the bar and Dr. Kenchy is still speaking with Emily. Kenchy tells Emily that he?s in Kansas instead of Las Vegas and that he should?ve been living the American dream instead of where he is now. Emily tells him that she was supposed to be married today.
Emily starts to daydream again. Emily is in her wedding dress and it?s her reception. Bailey?s bar is full and they are having a great time at the party. Emily and Heather are drinking champagne and they make a toast and are all smiles. ?To Emily and Roger?may they live happily together in total blandness?. Emily is having negative feelings in her dreams about Roger.

Ravenwood is on their way driving in Hummers and Jake is wiring the explosives. He has the detonator in his hands. Jake tells Goetz that the bridge is wired and that he will blow the bridge if they do not turn away. Goetz makes his usual statement about gathering supplies but Jake will not back down. A sniper has Jake in his scope but Jake will not back down. Goetz starts to negotiate with Jake and says that he just wants to take what he needs and leave. Robert takes out the sniper that had Jake in his sights and then aims for Goetz.
Jonah is with Eric as they drive up behind Goetz and his Ravenwood men. The Ravenwood group is surrounded. Jake asks Goetz, what this town is worth to him. Goetz tells Jake that when things get back to normal the government is going to send him back to ?help? them. After that he and his men get in their vehicles and leave.

Jonah gets no ?thank you?s? from Jake or anyone else for his help. Jonah said that if Eric didn?t get him that Jake would be dead and buried in a shoebox and that they need to get themselves together if they want to defend the town.

Emily is still daydreaming about Roger and he is speaking to her in a dream. She asks him if he is dead and Roger asks her if it would make it easier for her. Roger asks Emily why she has never left Jericho and wonders what keeps her so tied to Jericho. Roger walks up to kiss her but then whispers in her ear. Heather walks in the room and breaks the daydream.

The town is scared and wants to know what they will do if Ravenwood comes back. Gray still wants to take out the bridge when Mayor Johnston Green shows up and announces that he is in charge. He tells everyone that the whole world is on the other side of that bridge. Stanley is with Eric and Johnston and says he is not for blowing up the bridge either. Gray challenges the Mayor and says that maybe it?s time they decide if they still want Johnston to still lead them.

Jake walks into the Mayor?s office to talk to his father and Johnston tells Jake that he?s being used by Gray. Jake tells Johnston that they need a security force.

Eric tells his mother, Gail that he?s not coming home and that he?s going come back the next day to pack some clothes. Gail tells Eric that April will have a home with them as long as she wants one. Eric still doesn?t know about the baby.

Emily is on her way home and she stops inside a church and takes a seat.

Robert and Jimmy are still on guard at the bridge. Robert tells Jimmy that they got lucky today.

Emily is still sitting in the church when Jake walks in and says that he?s seen Heather and that she?s wasted. Emily says she?s over served herself. Jake tells Emily that he knows that today is her wedding day. Jake says that he never talked to her about Roger and wants to know how he proposed to her. Jake was engaged to Emily before and has a joke about how he proposed to her in a video store parking lot. Emily wants to know why Jake came back and Jake walks over to Emily and leans in like he?s going to kiss her but then he just whispers in her ear. It?s another daydream. Emily has been sitting in the church the whole time by herself.

I'm NOT happy that it looks to be that Emily is still having feelings for Jake. I DONT want them together. I want Jake and Heather together.

I don't like Eric... but, at least he finally was a man and spoke the truth. His mom almost said something about the baby. I hope that when he does find out, it's too late for him to have April back. He doesn't deserve her. JERK!!!

I'm a little war like, when it comes to war like stuff, so I was a little irked with the plot.


Here is how ole Whid would have handled it: Instead of rigging the bridge, with you on it in a suicide bomber deal, rig the damn bridge and stand on the other side, or hide. Then when troops roll in, blow the bridge and troops, then mow them down.


Just kill them already. There has been a nuclear war, it's time to step up to the plate and take out the bad guys.


I wasn't into Blondies flashback scenes. Overall a good show though. I enjoyed it.

Well, taking out that bridge would have hurt the town of Jericho... and daddy mayor had a great point. What if they took it out, and were attacked on the other side of town... HOW would they have gotten out? They could have just hidden and snipped 'em... or planted bombs elsewhere, before the town bridge, and taken care of them.

I wasn't all that happy with all the flashbacks, and visions of "what could have been" with Emily. It was rather annoying... and her wanting Jake really chaps my ass.

Still, it's Jericho... one of the best shows, and I'm happy, each week, with what's happening.

Walking Tall was on TNT yesterday and I gave it a go. It started out halfway decent before it degenerated into an 80's style beat em up movie.


I thought the Rock did pretty good. He was hero enough to pull it off.


The Blond girl from Jericho was his girlfriend in the movie. Poor thing had to crawl under a trailer in her bra.

Chief from Battlestar Galactica was in for about 3 minutes as a crooked card dealer.


Pickett from LOST was the bad guy sherrif.

The guy from the Star Trek movie that got turned into a Borg was the main bad guy.
