Last night, Syfy aired the series finale of Eureka. Last summer, the cable channel renewed the TV show for a limited sixth season but then ended up cancelling Eureka instead. In order to give the cast and crew a chance to end the series properly, Syfy execs ordered one additional episode — “Just Another Day.”
In the last installment of Eureka, the government is shutting down the town of Eureka. The various characters start dealing with this revelation and try to find a way to say goodbye and move on. Meanwhile, memory-less Holly Marten starts discovering the wonders of the small town, much like Zoe and Jack Carter did years ago.
Jo and Zane hold back from telling each other how much they care and Carter seems pleased that he won’t have to save the residents week-after-week. Zoe returns to say goodbye and Fargo goes through the roof when Department of Defense movers show up a month and a half early. Fargo uses a strong force amplifier to lock himself to the ground and won’t move unless the DOD changes their plans.
To save the town from some unstable wormholes, Carter volunteers to take Fargo’s strong force amplifier into a wormhole. As he travels, he sees visions of his past, present and potential future. He makes a hard landing on the lawn beside the Archimedes statue, and Henry rushes to his side. It worked.
He learns that Trevor Grant, the founder of Eureka, has returned. With knowledge of the future, Grant (under the alias of Doctor Trent Rockwell) invested heavily in the stock market and is using his fortune to create a new Eureka.
Zane downloads some data regarding Grace and Old Henry. Following an anonymous tip from Beverly Barlowe (she turned in Senator Wen), Grace is later released from government custody. Henry becomes the new Director of Global Dynamics after Fargo steps down. Holly has regained her memories — including those of her relationship with Fargo — and has offered him a job on a top-secret project.
Jo proposes to Zane and he wholeheartedly accepts. Allison is thrilled that Carter wants to stay in the new Eureka and tells him that she’s pregnant. As Jack takes Zoe to the airport, they pass younger versions of themselves entering Eureka. The circle and the series are both complete.
What do you think? Were you pleased with the last episode of Eureka? Was it all that you hoped it would be? Were there any disappointments for you?
