Im really surprised more people on this site aren't into this show.
I'm surprised too, especially because it seems to imply, in the begining and imo at least, that things like the WOT and the ascendancy of the right
were causing severe civil war scale divisions within the US. I also have to wonder, just who were those nukes flying torwards in that last episode,
some foreign country that attacked the US, or at cities held by a radical faction within the US? Is it all politics as normal, or is there some
secret cabal behind it all, manipulating everyone into warfare, and then using that chaos to install themselves into power.
Very apopros of ATS!
Btw, what were those missiles? Nuclear ones?
I think its implied, yes. The idea is that there are nuke silos all over the US, such that in a full scale counter attack, even a tiny, meaningless
backwater town like Jericho would see them streak off into the sky. The whole episode lead up to that point, the telephone announcment that there'd
be 'further instructions', and then the mysterious apparent press conference on tv. We don't see what happens there, we get cutoff before it
starts, but it was almost certainly whatever authority is left saying 'we've been attacked, and we're going to get those muthas!", then the launch
of the counter-attack.
The fact that it takes, in the timeline of the show, at least, what, a few days, for the counter attack, is interesting. It implies that so many
authorities were wiped out, that it took that long to figure out who's in charge and how to even send them. Or that the attack was utterly
mysterious. IN the old days, it'd've been a soviet attack, with soviet armies massing to invade the US, and a counter-strike would be
instantaneous. But today, the world is more chaotic, so they'd probably need a few days to decide who hit them, you'd have to be certain of who to
hit, you'd only get one chance perhaps.
Also, if there were nukes launching from near Jericho, then why was Jericho spared? Wouldn't that be one of the first targets?
There is a bit of a problem in terms of geography for the show. Jerhico is supposed ot be in Kansas, apparently, but they can see the rocky
mountains, even denver, off in the distance, which is nonsense.
Small towns wouldn't be targeted in a traditional soviet first strike, but all silos and bases would be. Jerhico is only spared because its
I see either 2 glaring plot-holes or two very big plot-twist that will come by the end of the season(with a cliffhanger ending of course).
Do tell. The only think I can think of right now is that the blonde's boyfriend's plane is 'known' to have landed safely, for some reason. So
presumably he will eventually come back.
I do feel Jake was some kind of military, secreat agent kind of thing, tried getting out and couldnt, that is why he came back for some money.
I get the impression that he was in prison or something like that. Maybe he learned about power plants and all these other things while he was doing
various jobs as an inmate. Though they did note that his passport was flagged by the US government, maybe he left the country and was invovled with
some wacky groups, or maybe he was in the military and over seas, but got kicked out.
