Eureka: Final Season (Discussion, spoilers, etc.)

I don't know how many fans there are of this show, but tonight marks the beginning of the end for Sheriff Carter, Allison, Henry, and the whole Eureka gang.

I've always enjoyed the show for what it is: lighthearted fun. No grim desperation, no shaky cameras. The interaction amongst the characters is always infused with both humor and heart. And you really can't go wrong with a show where a robot is in love with a house.



I assume tonight we shall learn the fate of The Astraeus, and of Jo...??

Stay tuned!

Damn, this season has been a long time coming...

I'm looking forward to it. I love this show, and will be sad to see it go - but at least we know when it will finish, so they've had time to wrap it all up nicely. I hope.

They were filming their final episode of a 13 episode order when the got the news. Syfy did give them one more episode to wrap things up, so unless they went back and did a few reshoots, the entire season isn't leading to the end, just the last ep.

Ah, gotcha. I was assuming that writing/filming for most of the run was going on during the break.

Just FYI:

SyFy is running a marathon right now of the last episodes leading up to the premiere tonight. So if you missed anything or want to refresh your memory, you can catch up today.

Unfortunatly for those of us on the other side of the Pond we'll have longer to wait, before "A Town Called Euerka" returns to our screens.

Re: Eureka: Final Season (Discussion, spoilers, etc.)

Wow.

I could not be more surprised.

I managed to avoid all spoilers going in.

For most of it, I was thinking "I can't believe they rebooted the show again!"

Then that last scene...I kept wondering after Henry said that "someone else was controlling the launch", exactly where they were going.

I think that was actually pretty dark, for Eureka anyway.

I hope they have a good endgame here. I'd love to see ther series end on a high note.

Re: Eureka: Final Season (Discussion, spoilers, etc.)

I first though of B when they told the crew, the new head of GD was a she, and again when Zack collapsed from being shot by those drones.
I thought the reprogrammed Eureka would be a season long ark, but it seems, only the Astraeus crew is affected.

Man, they have gone through quite a lot, those people from Eureka, and towards the end of this episode I was actually liking the new route, but then again, it may have been too bold for Eureka upsetting the status quo, or the two big relationships, like that, thus the B route felt a bit like a deus ex machina.

But then again, it is good to see some new Eureka again and hear some Bear music.

Which begs the question: what are the people who weren't on Astraeus (like Jo and Henry) really doing?

Well one thing is dealing with the DoD. Allison was acting head of GD, and she disappeared with the ship. Remembering the season finale, Jo and Taggert were leaving town, so it's basically Carter and Henry working on the problem while also dealing with the organizational vacuum caused by losing Fargo and Allison.

Maybe they will bring Stark back to run GD in the interim. Hey, no one has shown that he is dead in new time line.

One would think the first thing Allison would check on, is whether the fathers of both her kids were around in this new timeline. But, this is Eureka after all.
Both her ex's could pop up to hinder the good sheriff's pursuit of his sweetie.

The episode had me worrying the entire hour, as I wondered whether they'd really reboot the show again so soon. The final scene was a welcome relief. Now I have to watch it over, just to enjoy the story without clinched teeth and fists...

Re: Eureka: Final Season (Discussion, spoilers, etc.)

i'm glad we have a thread here...it seems like Eureka isn't as popular as it SHOULD be...maybe one of the reasons why they're cancelling it?

Now, with the final scene...there were FAR MORE than the Astraeus' crew there. So i'm not sure who all is in the dream state, or WHEN it happened. Could this have been going on since the new timeline (with Dr. Old Spice), or somewhere in the middle of it?

i will so miss this show. There's very little, if anything, i really look forward to anymore on SyFy...

They really had me going until Shane got zapped-- then there were some consciousness artifacts going on that clued us in that it was a hallucination. I should have known Beverly would be behind it.

I hope Dr Old Spice makes an appearance before the end. I'm certainly going to miss this show when it's gone.
