'Jericho': 30 Seconds Over Cheyenne
So, like all good things in life, it all comes down to Cheyenne, Wyoming.
That's where the last bomb's heading, so that's where Hawkins, who lost the darned thing, is heading. And he's taking Jake with him.
Who's also on their way to Cheyenne (if he's not there already)? Hawkin's Mystery Man, a.k.a. John Smith, a.k.a. the really bad man responsible for blowing up 23 American cities. What a disappointment he turned out to be! Hawkins should have known better -- I mean this is the guy supposed to know everything, right?
Yes, our mystery man -- who we all thought was the savior -- turns out to be the evil presence behind the whole thing. Just who is he, "Jericho" fans? Answers now!
Another disappointment from last night's episode? Beck. What happened to him? Just when we thought he was starting to come around, he winds up going all Abu Ghraib on poor Jake and imposes the worst kind of Martial Law on Jericho.
Of course, good ol' Jake wouldn't give up his fellow Rangers or reveal where Stanley the Assassin is hiding. A little hallucinatory visit from Grandpa didn't hurt. (I was half-expecting him to tell his World War II "Nuts" anecdote again.)
How 'bout that blink-and-you-missed it appearance by Pamela Reed as Jake's mom. Ah, it made me nostalgic for that classic first season.
Don't get me wrong -- Season 2 has not disappointed. But, man, those ratings. Yikes. They're approaching CW levels.
So, Jericho Army, with one episode left, the big question is: Will next week's episode be a season finale or a series finale?
Either way, we've got a showdown in Cheyenne coming next week
