Bradley packs up to leave Jericho and Johnston warns him not to leave.
Gray Anderson has mixed feelings about the refugees in Jericho including
Roger. There is a rumbling outside on the streets of Jericho. Eric Green is
on horseback and he’s clearing the way for a tank. A tank rolls down the
streets into Town Square in front of City Hall. Sergeant Hill tells Gray
that he is with the United States Marines and they are there to help them. A
crowd gathers in front of City Hall. The marines tell them that they have
won the war and they are there to rebuild. The United States government is
reunifying in Columbus, Ohio. Mimi kisses Stanley and mumbles, “It’s over.”
Johnston tells the Sergeant that they should get a wish list. Mary invites
the Marines to the bar. Maggie Mullins wants to get communications back up.
Robert gets his family ready to leave. Sarah is in the basement sending a
message that she plans to use Robert’s family against him. Robert comes
downstairs so Sarah quickly puts away the messenger. Robert informs her that
he has changed his mind and he has decided not to move his family. After a
few minutes of talking to Sarah, Robert re-thinks his plan and decides to
drop his family off and leave with her. They kiss.
Mimi is thrilled that things are getting back to normal. She can just
picture herself in New York. Stanley becomes upset when he thinks of Mimi
leaving town. She begs him to come with her, but she knows that Stanley is a
farmer at heart.
Robert kisses Sarah and tells her that they need to be going. Sarah goes
back upstairs. Robert has used this time to take her messenger. He reads
Jake is in Mary’s Bar with Maggie. They discuss taking the jukebox apart
to use as a transmitter, but then decides to use the ham radio in City Hall.
Sarah helps Samuel and they look for her messenger and find it gone. She
knows that Robert has taken it. She walks over to Samuel with a gun in her
hand. Robert also has his gun loaded. Sarah tells Samuel to sit down on the
couch while she talks to Robert. Robert unloads his gun and puts it in the
drawer. Sarah points her gun at Robert. Robert puts the messenger on the
table. Sarah asks him when he had fallen back in love with his wife.
Johnston explains to the Sergeant as to how the town had made it since
the explosions. Mayor Gray competes with Johnston for the Sergeant’s
attention. The Sergeant informs them that since Jericho is in such good
shape, the Marines may have to skip over them. Maggie makes a call, and when
she gets the reply back, they are ordered back to Dodge City.
Robert wants to know what she will do with the package. Sarah informs him
matter-of-factly that she will sell it. Darcy walks in and sees Sarah with a
gun pointed at Robert. When she sees Darcy, Sarah points the gun at her.
The Marines were ordered to leave Jericho, so they are leaving. Gray
offers to get them fuel but wants assurances that Jericho will be taken care
of. The Sergeant assures him that Jericho will be at the top of the list.
Maggie tells Jake that she will not be coming back to Jericho. Maggie starts
to kiss him, but the Sergeant yells at her.
Sarah has her gun pointed at Robert and orders him to get the package.
Robert agrees to get it if she puts the gun down.
Another call comes in from the radio. There is loud gunfire in the
background. There is explosive popping. Going outside, Jake finds out that
Gray is popping fireworks to celebrate the Marines arrival in Jericho.
At dinner, Johnston makes a speech about Semper Fidelis which means, “Always
faithful.” Johnston is proud and happy that the Marines are in Jericho.
Johnston walks out with Gail and Jake. Jake fills his parents in on the
news. Johnston becomes worried about the tank and he finds out that the
so-called Marines are not really Marines at all and everything that they
told them was a lie.
Sarah holds Robert’s family at gunpoint until he retrieves the package.
Jake visits Maggie. She pulls a gun on him and tells him everything. She
tells him that they go from town to town gathering supplies. She warns Jake
not to make her shoot. Jake gets knocked out from behind. Robert rolls the
barrel out. Darcy becomes upset when she finds out that the barrel had been
in the house all the time. Sarah orders him to step back while she checks
Maggie and the Sergeant debate what to do with Jake. The Sergeant wants
to kill him. Johnston and Eric arrive with loaded guns. Gray wants to punish
them publicly, but Johnston wants to give them a “heroes” exit because of
the hope that they have brought to the town.
Sarah wants to leave with the package and Samuel as a little extra
insurance. Darcy rushes her and knocks the gun out of her hand. Sarah kicks
Darcy to the ground. Robert lunges at Sarah and begins to choke her. Sarah
grabs a knife and cuts Robert. Sarah comes in for the kill when Allison
picks up a gun and kills Sarah. Robert is upset that Allison had to kill
Sarah but Allison assures him that she is fine. They both tell each other "I
The “Marines,” no longer armed, pretend to be proud as they leave
Jericho, but Johnston and his men walk beside them with guns to keep them in
line. Jake tries to get Maggie to stay with him in Jericho, but she won't
because she feels that her life, short though it may be, is best spent with
the fake marines. Mimi admits that she has feelings for Stanley.
Robert gets a message on Sarah’s messenger. Robert sends them a message
(as Sarah) that Hawkins had been killed. He gets a return message that it
was a job well done and they would be in touch.
The Marines walk out of town without their uniforms or equipment.
Johnston orders the Marines to leave their weapons on the tank. At
Johnston's urging, Stanley plans to store the tank in his barn. Johnston
remarks that you never know when you might need a tank.
