Tonight features the return of Jericho. Left for dead at the end of last year, the fans sent tons and tons of nuts, literally nuts, to the head of CBS in protest for them not picking up Jericho for a second season. The response? Jericho was picked up for seven episodes to end the series on a good note. If they didn't end up picking the show up, the series would have ended just as the war between New Bern and Jericho was starting. Now at least we can get some resolution.
This episode takes place 4 weeks after the war between the two towns and is now over because it was broken up by the Cheyenne government. We'll get some hints regarding more of Jake and his backstory, and we'll see that him and Emily are living very happily together right now. Major Beck will be a new key character in the series. Jenning's & Rall becomes a very important company in the town of Jericho, helping out many of the residents, however they might not be all they're cracked up to be. Robert Hawkins is back and he figures out who is trailing him (from the end of season one). The United States is still divided into at least three factions. All of the states West of the Mississippi are together except for Texas and the capital is located in Cheyenne, all the states East of the Mississippi are together and the capital is located in Rome, NY, and Texas is doing it's own thing because well, everything is bigger in Texas.
Welcome back Jericho. We missed you. Finish out your series the right way.
