EPISODE REVIEW: Eureka: "One Giant Leap" (Season 4, Episode 20) Season Finale

Anna's picture

I tried to guess how the season is going to end, knowing the Eureka writers’ penchant for cliffhangers, and boy, my guesses are nowhere near the mark and what a hanger this cliff turned out to be.

Or maybe not so much, since within minutes of the episode’s ending, we get a sneak preview of next season that kind of kills off some of the suspense of who will be back or not. (I hate you, SyFy!)

To summarize the season-ender:

EPISODE REVIEW: Eureka: "One Small Step" (Season 4, Episode 19)

Anna's picture

A freak accident with the FTL drive causes Deputy Andy to be stranded on Titan, and the Eureka folks race to get him back before the extreme environmental conditions do permanent damage on him. Meanwhile, Taggart is back, and when Taggart is around, some crazy scheme that may involve pretty much anything is bound to go out of control. In this case, it’s genetically-manipulated bats that literally crap acid. Of course, the bats cause this week’s mayhem in GD.

EPISODE REVIEW: Eureka: "This One Time In Space Camp" (Season 4, Episode 18)

It is six weeks before Astraeus takes off for Titan and the trip’s aspiring crew members need to pass one more hurdle before the final list is done. Senator Wen heads a panel that interviews each aspirant separately, asking a variation of the question “What makes you want to go to Titan so bad that you are willing to let us use a brain interface that lets us watch your deepest memories?”

EPISODE REVIEW: Eureka: "Clash of the Titans" (Season 4, Episode 17)

So we are four episodes out to the end of Season 4 (4.5?) and the Astraeus mission is getting close to crunch time. But not without a minor hitch or two. The return of Tiny from her Titan prep mission and her rapid demise soon after she reaches Earth starts a series of investigations that culminate in a massive red cloud of doom hovering over the town and threatening to kill everyone. But even worse, a government bureaucrat descends on Eureka to assess the "intimate alliance" of two of Eureka's top personnel. Oh, noes!

EPISODE REVIEW: Eureka: "Of Mites and Men" (Season 4, Episode 16)

"Of Mites and Men" starts with the Astraeus countdown clock at 91 days and change.

The set up: It’s about two weeks after the affair with Beverly Barlowe brainjacking Allison, and Allison is raring to get back to work. Carter is not convinced that she is ready, and neither is Senator Wen who refuses to reinstate her in any position of responsibility. She is not even welcomed back to her medical office, with a new doctor literally taking her chair.

EPISODE REVIEW: Eureka: "Reprise" (Season 4, Episode 12)

I have to wonder how Comcast purchased a controlling stake in NBC at the beginning of the year and I not notice it until now.  I was looking for ways to view this episode of Eureka in case I missed it when I discovered that July will only be airing all SyFy shows after they've finished their season runs.  Enough complaining though, we should get on to the review.

EPISODE REVIEW: Eureka: "Liftoff" (Season 4, Episode 11)

This week saw the return of Eureka from the seemingly eons long departure that was their mid-season break.  I'm beginning to have trouble understanding the logic to these breaks.  It almost seems that it would make more sense to start the season in July and end it in November if you're going to have a seven month break between episodes in a single season.  Maybe someone else can explain it to me.

(Delayed) EPISODE REVIEW: Eureka: “O Little Town” (Season 4, Episode 10)

Meanwhile, over in the (Slightly) less stupid corner of the Warehouse 13 universe…

PLAY BY PLAY

Sheriff Carter is bored, and buttonholes some kids into having to listen to his Christmas story:

The force field over Eureka is sketchy, and no one can get in or out. Carter can’t go visit his brothers in danelaw, and Zoe is trapped in town as well. But since she’s Zoe, this amounts to nothing, so we’ll just ignore her.

EPISODE REVIEW: Eureka: “I’ll Be Seeing You” (Season 4, Episode 9)

Man, I’ve just got to find a way to write these reviews shorter. I did a Retrospeculative review for Galactica today that ended up running seven pages. On top of that, I wrote four other articles today. I’m a bit knocked as a result, and the annoying thing is that there’s always more to say. I never feel like I’ve quite nailed it, but as you all know, I generally go on waaaaaaay too long with everything.

Anyway, before we begin, there’s some good news: Eureka has been renewed for a fifth season.
