Things are getting critical in Jericho.
With more and more refugees coming into town, the resources are spread very thin people are starting to become irritable. It’s just a matter of time before someone snaps and brings the whole thing down like a castle of cards.
It’s funny, because of all the people who would do this, I didn’t think it was going to be this one.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
A few kids are hunting rabbits and they find the tank.
The town is almost in revolt because they discovered that the marines were con artists. But the town keeps giving away their food to refugees and strangers, the food isn’t going to last long. I find it strange they would actually take the chance to help all these people, because that is what most of the other towns are doing.

Roger asks Jake to get Jessica to help Gray. Roger is behaving irrationally and keeps Gray as a hostage. After some negotiation with Jake, they come up with an agreement. But I think that its not going to work out.

Dale hired some of the refugees to act as his goons, so his trading post is fine. Martha decides to take in a few people.
While people are fighting over food, Hawkins is printing out pictures of the buyer. He has access to a satellite and finds the old man. They give him a message to say that they will double the price.
