Meet the actor: Christopher Wiehl
His last name is Hammond.
He is an investment banker.
He is from a very well-to-do family.
He and Emily have a house in Jericho and were planning to be married in November.
He wanted 5 children and Emily said she would be good for two then he (Roger) would be on his own.
He wanted to take a job in Chicago (which is why he was there just before the attacks), but decided that he would rather stay with Emily.
What We Know:
He was on a plane back from Chicago when the bombings occurred. The plane was able to land safely in a field.
He led a large group of refugees to Jericho, promising them they would be safe there.
He makes a stand to protect the refugees in ep 1.17 One Man's Terroristand is exiled from town. Jake tells him to travel to New Bern and meet up with Stanley and Eric.
What we don't know:
How he and Emily met.
How long they've known each other.
Whether or not Roger knows or really understands who Emily's father is.
Whether or not Roger is aware of Emily's connection to Jake, and Jake's involvement in Chris' death.
Does he make it to New Bern? I hope not. After seeing episode 19, they may lynch him when they find out he's from Jericho.
Will he eventually return to Jericho?

Fiance: Emily Sullivan

Roger is one of my favorite charcters, right up there with Stanley, Jake, and Heather. I didn't like it how they kicked him off the show, but *sigh* that's the world we live in. The best characters are always kicked off or dramatically altered. One of the reasons I like Roger is beacuse he is a good developing character; he started off being a "big, bad city boy" but after surviving and for three monthes after the attacks and leading fifty peole to safety, he has changed. Since he returned to Jericho, Roger has admitted to being selfish and ot listening to Emily's requests before. Roger is now very humble, and he takes it as his responsibilty to make sure the people he loves are safe, both Emily and the refugees. His unswerved caretaking of the refugees is so awsome! Of course, when Roger loses his temper and the people he loves are in danger... he can get a little out of it. But so can everybody.
Not that I've heard anybody say otherwsise, but...he shot Gray Anderson by accident! Roger has this grin that he's been wearing from "Black Jack" and up. But on "One man's Terrorist", he has his angry face on...man, Christopher Wiehl can be SCAREY!

From the episode Blackjack: Roger tells Emily about what happened to him on his way back to Jericho. He remembers passing out in a field in Nebraska thinking that he was going to die there. He then remembers seeing a light with a ring around it and he followed it for about 2 miles when he fell right into a refugee camp. Roger believes that this light saved his life.
There is an interesting parallel with this story and the 1856 Battle of Blackjack which John Brown the abolisionist played a part...Read a quote of John Brown's:"'T is time...New hopes should animate the world, new light
Should dawn from new revealings to a race
Weighed down so long."
I bet Roger will play a big part someplace...somhow...and it will have to do with being a "new man"!

I'm glad to see in the preview that Roger survived. All of a sudden, Jericho was marching down a predictable path with Jake and Emily... and personally, I found it boring because every word and every move is canned Hollywood poo poo. I appreciated that the writers were taking Jake in a less predictable direction to begin with and had originally paired him with a more real and solid character in Heather. I hope that Roger's return allows us to see Roger and Emily's love renewed instead of using him as an expendable prop to set up a predictable and disappointing triangle. The scenes in which Emily was remembering good times with Roger and imagining her wedding day were sweet and surprising and definitely should be used as the foundation for Roger and Emily to renew their love. I've seen enough shows where the writers fall back on writing the main character and the cast's bleach blonde into a show-cancelling hook-up. What a snooze... anyone can write that garbage.
