Jericho: Black Jack, recap No. 1


Welcome to our second week of Jericho guest bloggers. Here’s guest blog No. 1, by Jane, of Alabama. Here’s the basic info on her:
Started watching Jericho:The pilot episode.
Favorite character: Darcy Hawkins because she is a strong female character. She changes to become more and more independent as the show progresses. [Amy note: This was an excellent episode to see that strength and independence evolve!]
What makes Jericho special: It’s the sense of community, the spirit of neighbor helping neighbor. It’s like in past times when a person’s barn would burn and all the neighbors would come help build a new one.
More about Jane: I am proud to be a Jericho Ranger.
Jane’s Jericho site: Jericho Monster
Jane got very creative with her blog post (more so than I’ve ever been!), so I present it to you here without further blather by me—except to say that I’d forgotten what a good episode “Black Jack” was!

Breaking News: Jericho, Kansas

The gas supply for the town’s generators is running low. It has been suggested that windmills are the answer but Jericho doesn’t have the needed parts to get a windmill working. This may be the only way our town can survive. Johnston Green, his son Jake, Dale, and Heather will be traveling to Black Jack Fairgrounds, a trading post in Nebraska, to acquire the needed parts.

Breaking News Update: Jericho, Kansas

We have just learned that Johnston, Jake, Heather, and Dale arrived safely in Black Jack although they found it heavily guarded. They discovered a News Board and have been informed that the United States now has six capitals with six people claiming to be President. The board also has news predicting the worst winter in decades coming soon.

News Flash: Jericho, Kansas

Johnston, Jake, Heather, and Dale found the needed part. Unable to trade salt for the part Dale stole it. Our townspeople were caught, but some old friends of Heather’s helped them escape. Heather explained to Jake that her friend, Ted from New Bern, has a way to build the part they need and she has the knowledge so she will go to New Bern to help build the windmill.


Robert Hawkins and his family have a newcomer named Sarah staying with them. Sarah has come to Jericho from St. Louis where she and Robert worked together. Hawkins and Sarah are looking for their employer (Old Man) whom they feel betrayed them. It appears to us, however, that Sarah may be the traitor because she received a message asking her if she has located a certain “package.” While Hawkins thinks he and Sarah are going to go kill the Old Man, Sarah receives a message asking if she has found the package. When she replies that she has not, she gets the response, “How should we proceed?”

Sarah replies, “We use his family.”

Stay tuned……

    Great job, Jane! Loved your take on this episode and the the news bulletins-like they’re coming right off the TV in Bailey’s—two thumbs up!

  2. Vicki

    I agree about Darcy Hawkins. She was so cool in this episode. lol, don’t mess with me or mine.

    I am telling you, her daughter is no slouch either – learning from 2 smart parents, you better not mess with that girl!!

    To quote your entry:
    “It’s the sense of community, the spirit of neighbor helping neighbor. It’s like in past times when a person’s barn would burn and all the neighbors would come help build a new one.”

    This not only is a good description of the fictional town of Jericho, but also of the very real community of fans who have come together to support the show.

    Thank you for being one of them.

    Awesome job Jane! What a great way to sum up all the most important scenes from the show. I agree with you about Darcy, it blew me away when she told Hawkin’s to kill Sara. Momma Tiger’s can get down right evil if they need to. Thank you for posting.

  5. PhillyPhan

    Loved it! I, too, liked that you mention Darcy’s strength. While watching the show, I keep thinking I want to see a woman be a hero. Maybe Gain can become a Deputy Mayor and smack some sense into Gray! And I can’t wait til Mimi gets a gun and someone threatens her turf!

    Jericho makes me want to move to Jericho. Besides the fact that Philly was a target, we wouldn’t survive even without a direct hit.

    Great recap, Jane! Hadn’t thought of Darcy in that light but you are right about her. I also like that they are all reconnecting as a family. I agree that the sense of community is what makes Jericho great. I came from a small town and it was the same there. Keep up the good work.

  7. Jane

    Thank you all for the comments. I really think Darcy is so important to the show and I want to learn more about her next season.

    Excellent write up! I enjoyed it very much! I have to admit, I got a little choked up when Darcy confronted Hawkins about Sarah. I can’t imagine how it must feel to be in her situation! She is definately one strong woman!

  9. Yvonne

    That was a really cool and creative way to recap the episode! Very nice job. I enjoyed it very much!

    Many years ago, Net sports activities book betting was risky.
    The advent from the internet has dramatically changed the way
    in which bets are placed on football or soccer. I guess
    a handful of suspensions was enough to satisfy the NCAA.
