Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Darcy Hawkins (as April D. Parker)


Major Edward Beck and his troops, sent by the Western states' Cheyenne-based president, impose pacification with Phil Constantino's New Bern men. Longing to revenge his dad and many others, even Jake is against, yet Beck offers him the post of sheriff. Arriving CIA agent Chavez teams up with old mate Hawkins to make sure proof that the nuclear war was domestically, not overseas-plotted, isn't eliminated. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


In one scene at the clinic early in the episode, Bill is seen eating peanuts. This is an obvious reference to the tons of peanuts sent to CBS after they threatened to cancel the show at the end of the first season. See more »


In the very first scene when Jake is being restrained by the army personnel, the flag on one man's arm is visible and while the new star pattern is visible, the stripes are still horizontal rather than vertical in the rest of the episode. The flag on Major Beck's arm, however, has the correct stripes. See more »

Not bad episode!
18 February 2008 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

Not a bad episode. I wish they showed more of the fighting and what happened. The viewer will have to wait for future episodes in order to understand who won the battle. I like the realistic military characters especially the portrayal of the captain. The captain is emotionless, logical, and pragmatic which portrays his military training. Vendetta killings with the invading town and reconstruction of Jericho is a realistic portrayal of what would really happen. The mayor/sheriff of New Bern is in lots of trouble. Green is chosen to be sheriff. A logical step for the transition from military rule in order to ease peace and normality to Jericho. Amnesty is given for war crimes in order to provide peace between New Bern and Jericho. If not there would be a lot of future counter revenge killings. The script writer's story displays what really happens in a war zone and how the military tries to defuse future hostilities. The Hawkin's subplot is slowly unraveling more to come on this front. 7 stars out of 10 stars for the reconstruction episode. I wanted a bit more maybe a 2 hour episode would have been better.
