Did I miss something?

Did they show rifles, or is this conjecture?

The data recorder didnt say, or if they did I didnt catch it. But since they are RIGHT next to each other, if one wa hit Im sure the other felt the fury.

Ah, ok. Hopefully there's a second drum somewhere with the ammo, eh?

Otherwise he has a drum full of metal clubs.

He definitely has assault rifles in the storage he went to. I don't think that's what he put in the barrel though. I think the barrel was already there and ready to be moved. What's in it? Dunno?

Although there was a package taped to the top of the barrel. So if it's rifles in teh barrel, then perhaps the package on top is the ammo.

It looked to me like there were rifles in a rack standing vertically near the barrel but not in the barrel.

I could be wrong but I don't recall a shot of what was in the barrel.

Here's one possibility:
It's a nuclear weapon. He was supposed to deploy it in some city but he got cold feet. This would explain hiding it in the manner he did. There are better ways to hide rifles than bricking the up behind a wall.

Also from the 2nd episode, he marked a lot of cities based on a short Morse code message. This could be explained by a coded phase that indicated the success or failure of a known plan.

Yeah I cant recall if it was in or near. I just remember seeing a rack of rifles in some sort of container.

I like you're possibility..........I had pondered that too. I think that that possibility has a good chance of truth to it.

Well, we should know next week, net says next episode will show a map of cities that were hit, so I suppose we will see!

However, everyone seems just too calm, if 10+ of our large cities were destroyed, well, I'd think there would be more panic!

Remember we're barely a day or two into it. People go through stages. They're still in shock and disbelief. They need time to grasp the nature of the problem to get all the way to panic. They need to feel the ravages of hunger, see a mob coming to eat them, feel their child's skin fall off for it to begin to sink in.

Maybe he was supposed to blow up St. Louis? It hasn't been listed yet as destroyed. (look at my location)

edit:
In the first episode the "ex-cop" was marking the map: did anyone see if he was using more than one color of push-pins? I was thinking one color for succesful explosions, another for questionable and another for failures/non explosions.

Am I the only one who saw little black creatures coming out of the crashed plane behind the one that landed on the highway? What could these things be? Robots? Rats? Boar? Whatever they were, they were coming out of it pretty fast.
post #314 of 3245
Never really understood why there were dead birds on the road in the first episode. However on the walk this morning I wondered if it was part of a conspiracy that others in this forum have been alluding to.

Remember the part in Close Encounters where the authorities claim that nerve gas has escaped and then quickly gas Roy Schneider's pigeons when they catch em...

Just wait. This week's "Lost" started outling all the 'others' and adding more flashbacks for the main characters. Think of all the potential episodes for flashbacks developing with Jericho characters. :-). Creatures scuttling from the aircraft? Missed that. -- John
post #316 of 3245
Yeah, I wish that I could find a screen cap of the creatures coming out of the aircraft in the background. They were hard to make out from that far away. They looked like black dots. Maybe someone who still has it saved can post a screen cap. This is where HD makes a difference. Can someone go to that scene and tell us what you think?

I noticed something moving around there, too. I just assumed it was either scavengers or light debris from the crash blowing in the wind.

Good point, but then again, geography hasn't been too much of a concern of this show thus far.

(tries to cover shame of lack of knowledge of US geography)

It was explained in the episode, the birds simply flew through the radiation coulds.

Jake drives for 50 miles ("he should have done 50 miles by now, lets try him on the radio"), and finds 2 downed planes.

Where did the pasengers go ? Why does he not see any people on the way ?

I mean, its not like the planes landed near any town. So why did they just not stick around. Also surely they'd have been better off in the plane with the fallout than out of the plane...

The black things coming out of the plane were definitely creatures and not just debris. I thought they were rats or something feasting on the remains..

No it wasn't. They simply showed the birds and said nothing about it. It was certainly implied but not explained.

Some explanation. But yes I heard that. I just could not figure out where this rad cloud came from, because next thing we see, she's walking near jericho (the sheriff car is the jericho sheriff car) with a gas can, ergo the birds were not too far from jericho either...and yet the fallout cloud is 2 hrs away (on the storm).
post #324 of 3245
The birds could have been flying for hours... irradiated miles away and only dropped dead when they neared Jericho. Don't think this proves anything.

Yeah, I thought they were rats too.

The birds all drank the same radioactive kool-aid.

I know there are holes all over this series, but i have to admit to being a little hooked. Not sure I'll be able to take 22 episodes unless some things start to pan out a little more however.

I remember the Day After when it was shown in the UK, and then Threads as made by the BBC. Both of them very scary. I was trying to work out whether i was less scared of Jericho because (a) I'm older, (b) the prospect of nuclear holocaust does not seem as likely, (c) those TV events were downright scary (think of the DA bit where the girl escapes the shelter and rolls in the fallout (yummy), or the bit in Threads where the commentator intones "this first harvest after the war will be the most critical" while the people stoop to pick up wilted shrivelled crops against a darkened sky).

So far jericho has not had any defining moments, just a few creepy ones, but nothing you didn't know was coming.

Yes, I understand this. I just like it because it's 1) thank the lord not yet another stupid reality show, and 2) different from anything else out there.

Don't underestimate that power of the tease. They can draw people out for an awfully long time revealing one tidbit or two per show. The protracted timeline makes it plausible, as we have only seen a day or two, as best I can tell, pass from the time of the blasts. We could be at one week by the end of the season.

I'm enjoying it.
