Jericho Recap - Episode 108 - Rogue River

The recap for episode 108, "Rogue River," is now up at Fandom Talk! Here's the teaser:

It’s one month after the bombs. Jake and his brother roar sexily down the road in the muscle car. Not that what they’re doing is particularly hot – it’s just that everything seems sexier with the muscle car around. Jake’s at the wheel, and as they come up on something in the road, Eric tells him to slow down. Instead, Jake floors it and blasts past what proves to be an overturned car. A woman lies stiff on her side, half in and half out of the smashed vehicle, her hand a clawlike silhouette against the sky. Suitcases and other belongings are scattered across the highway, and we hear the sound of flies buzzing. Oh dear. I’m thinking there won’t be any Halloween parties in this episode. No way, no how.

Eric protests that they can’t just leave the woman lying there, and I shout, “Um, can and will!” Jake agrees with me, saying darkly that they’re not stopping until they get to Rogue River. He saw a second set of skid marks at the accident site, and surmises that someone forced the woman off of the road before robbing and killing her. The culprits may still be lying in wait, and if Jake and Eric don’t make it back with the meds, Johnston will die. “This is the world we live in now.”

Darcy Hawkins pulls a pie out of a jerry-rigged (formerly) electric oven, praising her husband’s smarts for setting it up. Enjoy your pies while you can, Jericho residents. Before you know it the canned pie filling and Potted Meat and Ramen and Velveeta will run out, and then what will you do? I guess we’ll have to wait for Sweeps Week to find out. As the pie cools, there’s a knock at the door. Darcy interrupts Hawkins, who is working in his Evil Basement Lair. Gray Anderson and Deputy Jimmy are there to see him. As he exits, Hawkins closes and locks the heavy metal door of the EBL.

I'm not requiring that anyone wait until after the episode to comment in this entry, so if you don't want to be potentially spoiled for tonight's episode, I would suggest not reading any of the comments before or during the episode.

Also, do not refer to anything that happens in future episodes in this entry, unless they were shown on the previews for next week. Thanks!

Finally, I wanted to remind everyone that tonight is the Dancing With The Stars finale, so if the ratings for tonight's Jericho episode take a hit, that's why. It's no cause for alarm. :)
