Loved this episode. Love Henry/Grace getting closer together. Nathan was a perfect combination of sardonic and funny. Nice seeing the little Zane/Jo moments even if it was with imaginary Zane. When is Grant going to buy a clue about Beverly? Seriously. He doesn't strike me as naive. Loved Fargo growing a backbone with the general.

My daughter thought it was a lot like Urgo with their imaginary friends.

Great episode.

And I just caught something in the second airing. If Beverly is what's-his-face's daughter - that Allison saved back in 1947 (obviously before Beverly was born) is this changed/current timeline the actual one? Beverly was around before. And they were willing to declare the guy dead in 1947. So maybe everything is finally as it should be?

Am I stretching too far?

I got quite a kick outta that BSG refrence from Dr. Grant. Totally didn't expect them go there. :D

Can't wait to see what happens next week.

It was great to see Nathan and Tess again, but I'm bitterly disappointed that they were only hallucinations. I was kind of hoping for something grander like say timelines collapsing into themselves. Even something simple like the initial explanation for Nathan's return would've been good enough for me :(

I want both of them back on the show full-time really really badly. The Carter/Stark relationship was just so fantastically snarky that now that I've seen it again I realize how sorely missed it is. And Tess, oh man. Besides being impossibly hot, I really miss the Carter/Tess relationship. And the Carter/Allison relationship is just frelling terrible :mckay:

Considering the A-plot was just a hallucination, that means that the Beverly/Grant B-plot was a whole lot more interesting to me. Which is a bit annoying, because it got so much less attention. I'm guessing (and hoping) that it becomes a more overriding story arc (particularly considering the episode's conclusion). I was a bit puzzled though about how it is Grant's hallucination could tell him exactly what the code was for--that was a bit Baltar/Head Six.

And just how many times has Carter's Jeep been destroyed now? :D

That's a very intriguing thought, I hadn't even considered it!

More generally, I'm thoroughly impressed that they've been bold enough to stick with the alternate timeline story instead of simply reseting it after a few episodes.

It's amazing how I forget what kind of show Eureka is sometimes, especially when Carter pulls out a gun and I cannot honestly remember the last time he did that.

I loved it, really. As much as I love Tess, and as much as I love Stark, we're living in a timeline right now where the writers of Eureka are angling for Carter/Allison, and have been for a while now. And it works for me. It's not my first choice, but that the writers are able to angle it and make it enjoyable enough for me to really get behind it, that's a good thing. Besides, apart from her relationship with Carter, there wouldn't be much for Tess to do on the show, similar to how Ed Quinn left last year because there was no major storyline for Stark to deal with.

But, onto this episode: Fantastic. I very much missed the Carter/Stark banter, and it was here in full force - probably deliberate by the writers to simply have only Carter see Stark. It made for some greatness and Ed Quinn knocked it out of the park, easily sliding back into his old role. Jaime Ray Newman was great as the jilted Tess-hallucination - nice outfit, by the by. Jo's Zane hallucination was... ouch. Seriously, torturing her must be the writing staff's newest favourite pasttime, especially now that Henry is getting some (Woo!), and Erica Cerra is on the top of her game.

Zoe I felt was underused as all hell in this episode, but it was still nice to have her around. Fargo's little thing was great - "I'm seeing a twelve-year-old girl. It's not as creepy as it sounds.", as was Grant's. Beverly being back and her usual self was fun, though I couldn't help but wonder how much of her presence was caused by the new timeline or not (How did that artefact storyline go down in this timeline? I have to wonder, because Kevin's normal, Henry was probably married and didn't lose Kim and didn't go nuts for a while there... Hmm.)

So yeah, overall, I loved this episode. Carter/Stark interaction was the highlight of the season. I'll miss it, but I'll live.

EDIT: And I just got Grant's reference to a leggy blonde in a slinky red dress.

I'm handing in my BSG fancard for not picking that one up. Goddammit.

The only reason that the guy was nearly killed was because Jo had been sent back.

You are stretching it too far. The reason the guy was saved by Allison in the first place was because Jo caused an accident that killed him, or someone did, I can't remember. He'd never have died in the original timeline since they weren't there to cause mayhem.

I have to say, I loved Stark in this. He was a great character when alive, and he was a great character when Jack thought him up. "hey, it's your dream" was gold. They have to bring the real Stark back now, Ed Quinn is just too great to be doing something else. Part of me was hoping it really was Stark and he was just playing at being part of Jack's mind. Sort of like Daniel when he appeared to Jack and Teal'c.

Don't feel too bad about it, i tend to see Dr. Grant as a completly different character than Baltar so i didn't pick up on it imediatly. Took a about a second before it hit me.

I have to agree to all of the above. I think we are all wondering what happened in the new Eureka up until now, but I think that will be explained once Kim shows up. Speaking of it, when Henry shared his memories with his wife, couldnt she also see memories of Kim and his breaking bad?

I loved Starks visit. I actually screamed out of shock when he showed up. I always suspected that Starks "death" was a great way to preserve the Character for later. They could get him back anytime they wanted. They just have to let a experiment with Time go bonkers and there is the cause for the reappearence of a beloved character. I really hope they will bring him back again, at least for another season.

The end of this Episode was awesome. The end of this Season could be potentionally epic. Why? What would happen if Grant gets send back to his time with all the knowledge about the future he now has. Also wouldn´t that cause the same problem, that he pulls things from another time, into 1947?

To the thing with Joe I can only say that the writers really enjoy making her life miserable, but in the end there is a real glimps of hope that Joe and Zane will get back together. The thing with Zane´s Grandmothers ring will be interesting. Does anyone know if Timetravel objects get replaced just like Persons? Could it be that the Zane of the new Timeline has a duplicate?

What did Grant mean with the blonde in the red dress coment?

I liked the slinky red dress comment from Grant but did you guys catch the other reference that nathan stark pointed out to another show?

Carter: You're dead, or undead.
Stark: (looks in mirror) Nope, not a vampire

Maybe homage to when he played a vampire on True Blood?

I'm expecting in the next episode Zane would confront Jo and say "You had my grandmothers ring... but so did I!" or something...

I loved this episode. And I'm not a huge Nathan fan (I thought he was a jerk!) but he was hilarious on this episode. I kind of wish it was a two parter and that the extras remained for the second part. **sigh**

I'm glad that you guys brought up the red dress line of Grant's--I watched BSG exactly once, so I wouldn't have picked that up. But I love it when they pay homage to previous shows like that.

So, in this timeline, if Allison hadn't saved the man's life in 1947, I wonder if this coalition of bad guys would even be around.

I am looking forward to seeing what happens here--I haven't been this intrigued by a storyline since the Lost City arc on SG-1.

And yes--shades of Urgo--but then this whole story arc is classic, though provoking Sci Fi at its best. This has been a great season so far.

(On the teaser, they said that the next episode was the season finale--:eek: I thought that this season was supposed to be 22 episodes? I'm confused. . .)

According to Colin Ferguson (on Twitter), Eureka's coming back for one episode around Christmas, and the back 10 episodes will air starting around January.

I guess the Xmas special will be episode 10 then? I notice on the Syfy schedule that Eureka's entries end at mid-late September, while other shows (like Haven and Warehouse 13) list the remainder of their episodes for the year, or at least have blank spots for the remaining episodes.

All around a pretty cool episode. I actually liked the hallucination angle because it seemed a little too convenient that they both popped back up, one from the dead, at the same time. I did like seeing Tess and Stark though.

I was surprised to see Grant sucked in so quickly and easily, I would expect more from him. Kinda cool that he might get sent back to his original time, but I wonder what will change if he keeps the knowledge gained?

I'm hoping they don't leave that Jo/Zane moment at that, Zane has got to be suspicious of what went down. If they pretend that never happened...:mad:

Looking forward to next week!

What did Grant mean with the blonde in the red dress coment?

It was a nod to James Callis' character Baltar, on BSG, who was forever having hallucinations of one of the humanlike cylons - "a tall leggy blond in a skimpy red dress"

This was a great episode. I have no problem with the Carter/Allison ship. In fact I'm rather enjoying it. I was not happy to see Stark show up, until I realized he was a hallucination. I was afraid we were going to get more will they/won't they, everything tossed up in the air again angst, which would have been very annoying.

Seriously, I'm really liking this alternate time line and hope they don't go back and "fix it" somehow.

This would have been a good ep if it wasn't for the whole Carter/Allison thing. Watching them make googly eyes at each other like they were 15 made me wanna hurl :S I wish they kept this whole thing dead and not revived it. It's painful to watch :S

They really do enjoy putting poor Jo through the ringer this year eh. I hope she gets a happy ending at the end of the season, she deserves it after all she's had to go through this year. As for the alternate timeline, as much as it's benn interesting the last few eps I wish they would fix things and bring our timeline back.
