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


The virus vaccine question and the surviving witnesses motivate sheriff Jake's men, Goetz's team and a radical resistance team out for revenge from New Bern to lay siege to the hospital. The evidence quest proceeds, thanks to which Goetz is discredited and fired by his company director, but more primordial revenge still primes. Written by KGF Vissers

Major Edward Beck: [Speaking to Jake] And you have my word. Tomorrow I'm going to get into this, but for tonight I'm trusting that you can keep things under control here. That means Goetz is off limits: no threats, no retribution, no exceptions. Do you understand?

Not bad
24 March 2008 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

Not a bad episode. One notices the close up and dark lighting of the episode which creates a feeling of closeness and tragedy for the show. The lighting gives a feeling of the aftermath of a horrid situation. I believe the J & R subplot, the phone calls to Hawkins, and the show's ending is all building up for the season finale. There is a lot of anger building up in the town of Jericho. I believe all the tension is build up for the climax. I think Jericho may only be 2 seasons. What can the series do for a 3rd year? Not much. 7 out of 10 the second best show on TV. Beck is the key character in the series now. How will Beck react to the circumstances?
