Storyline

Because the supplies will never last everyone trough the winter, mayor Gray Anderson decides the last wave to have arrived should leave. Jake is startled to find USMC men and a tank roll in, telling now the war against Iran and North Korea is won, the federal government reunifies in Columbus, Ohio and promises to normalize life, but Jericho, being in a better state then most of Kansas, will probably get a low priority for engineers corps help. Jake helps lance corporal Maggie Mollin repair a radio, which alas orders the platoon to rejoin the division. The mayor swings a deal with the commander, but Jake smells a rat and sends Stanley on reconnaissance; Army veteran dad Johnston Greene agrees they are fake Marines, who now have superior firepower and half the town's supplies, but they can be outwitted, only- what about the effect on the local moral?

Mayor Gray gets help
14 January 2008 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

I love this show. The Marines come to town in order to help, but are they really Marines? Mayor Gray tries to bribe the Marines with food, etc. The old Mayor(his dad) gets wind of the con job being pulled on the town. He sees the inconsistency of the military behavior as he was in the military himself and hears the town's fireworks from the command base and knows something is amiss. I will not ruin the rest but the town gets a tank out of the deal. Great directing, big budget, and strong acting. 9 out of 10. This show gives Supernatural a run for the money. I cannot wait for the next season. My favorite episode. I think it starts showing here in Canada in February sometime. I hope the strike is not going to delay the showing. I hope the evil mayor from the other town receives payback.
