Let me preface this with, “OMG. I LOVED this episode!”
For anyone who didn’t manage to catch the premiere episode of Eureka, you might want to skip this, because I am going to talk about all the juicy details that I loved and there will be spoilers, starting with the ending.
Although I was tempted to hope this reality was real, I felt enormous relief when I realized it was a construct created by Beverly Barlowe, one of my favorite bad girls from Eureka.
I still hope to see some time line changes before the end of the season, or at least something that brings back Nathan Stark, because I still miss him to this day.
I absolutely loved the emotional upheaval Allison has been put through, and seeing the tears in her and Carter’s eyes when they were having their discussion felt like it was going to break my own heart. Zane, of course, is still a favorite of mine, and seeing his own reaction was also awesome. I’ve wanted Jo and Zane back together since the beginning of season 4 when the time line changed (for the second time if you count the changes that happened in Once In a Lifetime from season 1, and I do).
I’m not sure how long this arc will last, at least while they actually believe they’re 4 years into the future, and honestly, I’m not sure how long I want it to last. Because although I like Allison, Jack is my favorite character and I’ve always considered Eureka to be his story. Keeping the fake reality alive only means keeping the fake Jack alive longer and I would rather spend the rest of my Eureka days with the real guy.
Finally, in the promo clips at the end of the episode, I know I saw Nathan Stark, and my hope is that he’ll be back for more than a single episode. I’m also still enjoying Holly (Felicia Day) and hope she sticks around, along with Dr. Parrish. :)
