** Episodes where the characters leave town and explore the outside even further underlines how easy the citizens of Jericho has it. Pretty much everywhere else has fallen to violence, anarchy, and complete collapse of order. While Jericho has energy, a salt mine, farm land, and is out of reach of radiation zones, all while maintaining diplomacy and law. It positively enrages all the other towns nearby.

Added DiffLines:

* ExactEavesDropping: The prisoners disguised as police men step out of the car to discuss something so that Heather can listen to the police report and learn about the missing deputies. The report stops exactly by the time the guys come back, so they would not suspect anything.


Added DiffLines:

* StoryboardingTheApocalypse: In episode 2, when the deputy sheriff describes the aftereffects of radiation poisoning to the billiard playing gang.

* AfterTheEnd: The end is actually the end of the United States (as we know it, at least.) The old country has been split three ways between Texas, the United States-states East of the Mississippi River, also known as the "Columbus" government because it's in Columbus, Ohio-and the ''Allied'' States of America, the states west of the Mississippi based in Cheyenne, Colorado.

* DividedStatesOfAmerica: In season 1, there are six federal governments. By season 2, there are only two contenders: the Allied States of America, of which Jericho is geographically a part, and what's left of the original United States government.

* ShoutOut: The producers evidently read ''AlasBabylon''. At one point, Dale can't sell some metallic trinkets because there's a fear of irradiated metal (which is identical to a plot in Alas, Babylon). Hawkins also suggests that Jericho is located away from projected fallout clouds and has access to useful resources, much like Fort Repose.
** In a scene almost directly lifted from ''AlasBabylon'' the townspeople hold a cookout to dispose of all of the meat in danger of spoiling in the local market. However, Jericho has access to a ''salt mine'', unlike the small town in central Florida where the novel takes place[[note]]The town runs into trouble because of a lack of a reliable salt supply later on.[[/note]] [[FridgeLogic How come no one tries to salt down the meat?]]

AnyoneCanDie and they stay dead. Also notable is the HeroicBystander approach to heroism, as a major theme is the common man having to choose to do the right thing or give in to baser urges or becoming DisasterScavengers. Other major themes involve family and [[InTheBlood heredity,]] redemption, and the struggle to preserve American values like democracy. Similar to ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'' drawing tension and avoiding the InferredHolocaust by dealing with issues like shortages in food, electricity and the people who want to steal from those who have these.
