Jericho Recap - Episode 107 - Long Live The Mayor

The recap for episode 107, "Long Live The Mayor," is now up at Fandom Talk! Here's the teaser:

It’s Halloween in Jericho. Apocalypse be damned; if we’ve learned one thing, it’s that this town knows how to get its party on! The Green brothers reminisce about Halloweens past, and Jake gets in a couple of good snarky lil’ comments at Eric’s expense. Hee! I think It’s good for Eric the Uptight. Apparently he’s the only one who didn’t get the memo that post-apocalypse, nobody really cares if all of your clothes are perfectly pressed. Seriously, I bet this guy starches his underpants.

In the meantime, Heather and Emily are, for some reason that is not entirely clear, moving pumpkins from one place to another in Town Square. They’re discussing Jake, and Heather thinks it might be weird that she’s asking about him. Emily, who apparently has been living under a rock wearing a blindfold and earplugs, asks why that would be weird. Fortunately, however, she quickly figures out what the rest of us have known for weeks: Heather wants to be sitting in a tree k-i-s-s-i-n-g Jake. Emily pauses for a second, but says of course it’s okay; her history with Jake happened a long time ago. She does, however, warn Heather to be careful, because there’s a lot about Jake she doesn’t know. Damn your naysaying, woman! First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes babies in the baby carriage!

Just then a car pulls into town square. But not just any car, oh no. It's the return of Jake’s beautiful blue muscle car! Oh muscle car, I have missed you so! I was incredibly dejected at the thought of you wrecked and abandoned on the highway. But here you are, with not a dent on you! It's a Halloween miracle! Everybody stares, because after the EMP, this is probably the first car they have seen in weeks. A man steps out, and Emily gets a good look at him. She backs away quickly with an "Oh my god." Her expression is full of fear as the guy, whoever he is, heads into town hall.
