What I'm Watching: Jericho

Jericho: Season 2, Episode 5 “Termination for Cause” (B)

This episode does not quite build off of last week’s high but is sort of on the right track. The loyal citizens of Jericho, and one traitor, get stuck defending the hospital from rather hostile Ravenwood guys. It is all very “Jericho”, but sending Beck out on a pointless raid seems a bit forced. I personally had forgotten all about New Bern, but it looks like they are still out there. I hope this means the return of Timothy Omundson as Constantino. I was pretty shocked that Stanley actually pulled the trigger and killed Goetz but I wish the scene had been played out more dramatically. With the exception of Jake, who has a permanent expression of shock molded on his face, no one looked the least bit surprised or troubled that Stanley had just shot someone in the head. Hawkins should really meet Sayid from “Lost”: the two of them could teach a class on not reacting to shocking events and staying perfectly calm and in charge.
