Jake Green and Hawkins
18 January 2008 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

"The day before" episode thesis is about character back ground and development for the shows main characters. The two main protagonist Jake Green and Hawkins are centered on this show. One learns of Jake's past with Ravenwood, and Jake trying to help his friend out. Jake's troubles direct him to Jericho in need of money. On the other hand, Hawkin's we no little of except, he is a highly trained weapon, who knows about the upcoming disaster, and wants to save his family. I like the show. A few slow spots. 7 out of 10. The Ravenwood incident will always haunt Jake and he will have to face the past in a latter episode. Jake's problems are small compared to what ever Hawkins must face. Next season will be interesting.
