Lost in the Stark stuff was Eva's actions. We know she was surveying that area, but Henry said there was a pocket of radiation. I think. What is she up to? Is she evil or just a capitalist trying to make a buck?
I've been wondering about that as well. I don't think it's about money, rather it's about power. She's trying to unearth a powerful weapon (or research and resources leading to such a weapon).
Well, it obviously ties in with the A-bomb tests footage from 1936(?) and the discovery of underground "chambers."

So, what's down there? Or is it who's down there?
Right, I figured it was connected to the A-bomb tests footage (hence my reference to power and weapons). I'm guessing there's some special kind of special bomb buried deep underground and she's trying to figure how to properly access it without 1) Alerting anyone and 2) Killing herself.

In order for the Allison and Carter romance to happen, Stark had to disappear. That was the only way for Allison to believably get close to Carter without appearing to be a fickle woman. On their wedding day or after they are married, I think Stark will return for dramatic effect. I think the character will return, whether the same actor plays him or not.

Nah... Stark could have cheated on Allison, or yelled at Kevin. Plenty of ways to break up the relationship.

However, a noble death was probably the best way to maintain the character's likability.

I don't believe they ever mentioned what happened to The Artifact after they separated its field from Kevin last season, did they?

It was buried on Earth for hundreds of millions of years, and they never specified precisely where it was found. Maybe they built Eureka where they did specifically because they found The Artifact near there accidentally while doing the A-Bomb tests, and it was in the underground chambers Eva is studying. It would explain the weird radiation signals Henry picked up, and it might have "evolved" somehow after connecting with Kevin and thus may be unrecognizable to Henry and the others, but Eva knows what it is, and is possibly a member of The Consortium and a replacement for Beverly, albeit with more power.

Also, that Dr. Carlson guy once told Stark that "he would someday know what The Artifact had revealed to him" and now Stark has had a very scifi "death" so he might be experiencing that version of enlightenment or "heaven" within The Artifact right now.

Except both of those actions would be completely out of character for Stark. A noble death is not.

Hmmm...interesting points there. You might be onto something there.

A bit of an aside, but did they ever say explicitly if Stark was Kevin's father? As I recall, they always played it a bit ambiguously, and I'm curious about where the kid actually came from.

I've been wondering the same, particularly during this episode. As far as I recall, it has never been stated that Kevin is Stark's son and that's something I would have expected to be mentioned sometime in the first two years, especially in the season two finale. I'm guessing Allison had Kevin prior to meeting and marrying Stark, perhaps even before she moved to Eureka. Do we know how long she's been at Eureka?

Re: Eureka - "I Do Over" (spoilers)

Kevin's Wiki page states his father died when he was younger.

That is a pretty good theory about Stark and the artifact. That would leave open the possibility that Beverly, the Consortium, and Stark might return. They can't leave the Consortium thread loose. It was too much a part of S1-S2.
