After a way-too-long hiatus, one of my favorite shows is returning to the airwaves. In case you have forgotten who's who in Jericho, I will give you a list of characters (at least as many as I can recall). Feel free to add or correct:
Anderson, Gray – owner of a mine outside of town, in which some of the towns people take refuge against fallout after the attacks; he successfully opposes Johnston Green’s campaign for re-election as mayor.
Bailey, Mary – bar owner; girlfriend of the married Eric Green.
Cafferty, Mitchell – former friend of Jake Green and Chris Sullivan; the trio were involved in a failed armed robbery several years ago, resulting in jail time for him while Chris lost his life and Jake left town; after his release, he went to work for Jonah Prowse; after murdering store owner Gracie Leigh, he framed Prowse for the crime; but stock boy Dale Turner discovered his guilt and murdered him in cold blood.
Cale, Shep – implicated in the death of a man named Scott who sought refuge in Gray Anderson’s mine during the fallout after the attacks; he later disappears on a reconnaissance mission.
Clark, Mimi – IRS agent from Washington, DC; auditing the farm of Stanley and Bonnie Richmond at the time of the attacks; ironically, they agree to let her live with them afterwards; she gives Sean Henthorn her gold watch to steal fertilizer from Gracie Leigh’s store, to be used on the Richmond farm; eventually a romance blooms between her and Stanley; she gives bar owner Mary Bailey advice about her rocky relationship with the married Eric Green.
Dhuwalia, Kenchy – doctor; discovered amongst the survivors of fallout at Rogue River and brought back to town; he spends an inordinate amount of time in Mary Bailey’s bar; treated wounds of Jonah Prowse while he was a fugitive implicated in the murder of Gracie Leigh.
Doug – former boyfriend of Darcy Hawkins; presumed killed in the attacks on Washington, DC.
Goetz – leader of the Ravenswood mercenaries; pursues the Green brothers from Rogue River after they retrieve medicine from the abandoned town along with Dr. Kenchy Dhuwalia; prevented from entering the town, but threatens to return.
Green, April – wife of Eric Green (married 15 June 2001); a doctor; had divorced papers drawn-up shortly before the attacks, but never actually filed them; discovered she was pregnant just before her husband left her for bar owner Mary Bailey, but did not tell him.
Green, Eric – younger son of Johnston and Gail Green; husband of April Green; served as his father’s Deputy Mayor; left wife to begin new relationship with bar owner Mary Bailey.

Green, Gail – wife of Johnston Green; mother of Jake and Eric Green.
Green, Jake – elder son of Johnston and Gail Green; left town after a failed armed robbery ordered by Jonah Prowse, in which his friend Chris Sullivan was killed; another friend Mitchell Cafferty was arrested and imprisoned for the crime and resents Jake for his escape from punishment; returned to town after death of grandfather Eric Jacob Green; attacks left him stranded there before he could return home; his activities since he left town are a mystery; to the consternation of Heather Lisinski, he rekindles a relationship with former girlfriend Emily Sullivan until her missing fiancé turns-up amongst a group of survivors.
