On turkey-hunt, which proves most 'recruits' for the security force are unskilled or inept, Jake and Stanley suddenly see military planes dropping unannounced supplies.Jake, Stanley and the townspeople cautiously inspect the supplies, made and labeled in China, parachute-dropped from Vietnam-era Russian-made airplanes, as Jake noticed. They fear poisoning to prepare a land invasion, but the civilians fight for everything; Gray tastes the food, which come with fliers 'China is your friend - Do not fight'. Mitchell Cafferty's gang plunders Gracie's store, she accepts the mayor's offer to serve as town depot. Stanley sends his girlfriend to get Jake as they even found a generator, but is meanwhile attacked and robbed by Jonah's men, who want compensation for loosing the store. The mayor heads an attempt by persuasion or force to make Jonah surrender at least the generator. Jake and Hawkins discover the parachutes have microchip-tags, only used by the US military...

When Jake tells about seeing the planes, he tells the others that the fighters were MiG-19s, and the others looked like Antonovs. The fighters were definitely not MiG-19s, but Swedish SAAB-37 Viggens. The Chinese never had anything like that. The other aircraft were C-130 Hercules cargo planes which may be confused with a Russian An-26 from a distance, but a military veteran wouldn't make such a mistake because the Hercules has four engines and the An-26 has only two.

Where is it going?
28 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

OK we first started watching this series because it seemed a little different. Around episode 5, we started getting a little bored, after all there wasn't much new stuff happening, just the same old, "LOST" sort of scenario with lots of secrets and who really cares right? OK, I was wrong, starting last episode and this one, the story is really starting to pick up. The interpersonal interactions between characters is clearly defined with some very memorable moments. I can't emphasize enough how interesting this show is finally getting. Its certainly building itself up for the break and will be one of those shows that you will be waiting for next year. Oh and a little thing I've noticed, the Morse code at the start of every episode seems to be different. Will be waiting for the DVD version so I can listen more closely.
