Jericho: Vox Populi
(S01E11) So Gracie the store owner is dead, stabbed by an unknown assailant, and you just know five minutes into the show that the person who is suspected of the crime, is not the guilty party. And when Mitchell comes back into town, injured, saying that Jonah "confessed" to the crime and then ran off, you know that Jonah didn't do it. But Gray and the townspeople form a posse to go get Jonah anyway. He's hiding at Emily's house, and Jake finds him there, bleeding to death.
Dale finds guilty about the way he quit the job at Gracie's store, but Gail has some shocking news for him: Gracie left the store to him in her will.
The election is tomorrow, and more and more people are starting to side with Gray, which doesn't make Johnston and Gail happy. Gray is even campaigning, talking to a crowd outside. And it works: he is elected Mayor.
Jake gets the doctor to patch up Jonah, but Jonah leaves before Jake can get Johnston to take action and protect him. He doesn't get far: the angry mob finds him and take him in.
Bonnie isn't too happy that Stanley and Mimi ("Manley?" "Stimi?") are sleeping together. She goes into town and tries to comfort Dale, but the other girl gets to him first. So Bonnie, of course, goes on a date with the jerk kid that's always giving Dale a hard time.
Whoever is talking to Hawkins on the other end of the computer tells him that the traitor has been exposed and they need his help. But Hawkins wants to spend more time with his family, and tells the person that he's been compromised and that they should proceed without him.
Dale finds out who killed Gracie, and it's exactly who we thought: Mitchell. He says he'll kill Dale too if he fails to make him a partner in the store. Just when I was about to say "oh no, one of those TV situations where the person threatened doesn't go to the police and tell them just because it will drag out the drama," Dale actually goes to Johnston and Jake! They rush to the police station. Gray and the cops were about to "transfer" Jonan to safety (translation: kill him), but in a dramatic confrontation, Jake convinces Gray that he shouldn't kill Jonah, that justice should prevail. They reach a deal to throw Jonah out of town and arrest Mitchell. Gray and Johnston come to a semi-truce.
Jonah says goodbye to Emily, but not before telling her that he left town years ago for his mother's sake, and that she shouldn't blame Jake for Chris' death, and that Jake still loves her. Their song is "Nothing Compares 2 U." Oh God. But what about Heather? What about Roger? Gah, there are more triangles in this town than in a geometry class.
But since this is the fall finale (til February), we have some big developments at the end: Dale shoots Mitchell, a group of survivors from outside stumble into town - one of them is Roger! - and Hawkins gets another mesage on the computer, asking why he's lying to them. They have pics of him and his family from a satellite. And they send the message "See You Soon."
