(S02E04) Well now things are just getting ridiculous. There must be a way that the residents of Jericho can take a stand against the occupation in their town. Are we to believe that Jake, Eric, Dale and a few others are the only people who have a problem with the new government? Considering how well they were doing on their own, I find it hard to believe they would stand around and be bullied by Ravenwood.
As for Stanley, he talks like he won't come around until the government literally comes and takes everything he holds dear, including Mimi. With that in mind, I have to say that this review was difficult for me to write considering the way it ended.
I think it's hilarious how Mimi and her freakish accounting abilities are the only thing that poses a threat to Goetz. I suppose the only person qualified to take down an oppressive government agent acting outside the law is someone who has experience doing the same exact thing, i.e. an IRS agent.
Did I miss the scene where the Hawkins kids went to live somewhere else. I understand that they aren't very convenient to the story right now, but that's no reason to give them the Chuck Cunningham.
I'm very curious to find out whether or not John Smith is someone we've already met. Could it actually be Mayor Douchebag working from the inside or is it one of Jonah's men? Either way, I kind of need some closure on this bomb thing. I mean, someone's got to find it eventually, right?
The only thing better than Hawkins' plan to make Beck see what he wanted him to see was the reassurance that Beck is smarter than anyone gives him credit for. Now if only he would come around and help expose Valente and the rest of the conspirators.
My favorite scene in the show had to be Heather's search and destroy mission in Beck's office. Sprague Grayden's acting along with the dramatic camera angles made for a very tense part of the show. It makes me wonder why Grayden has been so underused this season.
At the risk of sounding naive, wouldn't it be easier to expose the conspiracy if Ravenwood and the military were gone? It's really frustrating watching the entire population of the town turn into mindless sheep when only a few weeks ago they were all banding together to defend themselves from an attack. Jake and the rest need to say "Nuts" to the Cheyenne government, make their own flag and declare themselves a sovereign government.
At the end of the day, it appears the only one with balls enough to do what needed to be done was the helpless little deaf girl. As sad as I am to see Bonnie go, I can't imagine any character who would make a better martyr.
