EUREKA “This One Time At Space Camp…” Review

EUREKA "This One Time At Space Camp…" Season 4 Episode 18 - On last week’s EUREKA, Dr. Hughes reported that Allison and Carter should break up to prevent their relationship interfering with their roles at Global Dynamics and the Sheriff’s office. Carter and Allison have appealed the decision to the DOD, who send their top man, the recently promoted Dr. Hughes, to hear them out. This week also marks the final interviews for the Astraeus missions and they really get to whats on each candidate’s mind, in this case through bio cortex recorders. Throughout all this a series of strange but familiar occurrences puzzle Carter and Henry until they find the unlikely culprit. At the close of the episode we know who’s made the cut for Titan and whats next for Carter and Allison.

It usually turns into some kind of weird exposition or an excuse to show old footage, but this week’s Eureka uses them smartly to reinforce what we know about the characters and not to rewrite the past. It makes sense that Zane is a trouble maker in the fifth grade and Jo is trying to outdo her brothers, to see anything else would seem disingenuous.
