Sort of a fun episode with some childish very adult pranks and an unfortunate fatality that seemed easily forgotten.
Big Ed Fowler is a Biologist who also was a former pro in the Pro Bowlers Tour. Fargo recruits him to play on the towns team in the annual contest versus the Area 51 team. It seems that scientific pranks are the rule of the day. The whole Eureka team is turned green by a small amount of radiation. Unknown to everyone Big Ed who is the Clean Room Cleaner had been working on a specimen to clean up radioactive waste. When he returns to his lab the blob ingests him and we now have a big problem.
Tess and Allison are forced to bring Jack in on the need for some Globidium Power Cells that run all sort of units around town including S.A.R.A.H., Jack's house. He needs to round up the cells and get them back to Section 5 so they can use the power to run a telescope so they can see what's coming from the signal.
As Jack goes to each person with a power source it is found that all the Globidium Cells are missing. That's when they check with Big Ed, but all they find is his clothes and a pile of goo.
In the end Jack manages to help in solving the crisis and putting himself in harms way to protect the town and the weird goings on.
On a lighter note Duncan stays around and manages to convince Lexi to go with him and to try being together. It was also good because he managed to turn all the green people back to their original color. Fargo and the Eureka team win the match this year and they turn their opponents red. I guess we all forgot about Fowler? An entertaining episode with a quirky story and still fun in the end. You can never take any of this too serious. Thanks for reading...
