  • Based on Kim's information the scientists discover Nemesis which is a Neutron Star that is in a binary star of our Sun's. This causes someone to experiment with Magnetic Fields and that causes a big problem. Both Zoe and Tess may leave Eureka.moreless

    So Jack is faced with big changes and other people are making big decisions. Zoe gets accepted into Harvard Medical a year early and Tess is offered a job to run a new satellite array being built in Australia. Jaime Rae Newman is great as Tess and I wish her well in her new show Eastwick. She and Carter made a great couple. There was tremendous chemistry there and it is a shame. Here's hoping that eventually they are able to get together.

    The magnetic field situation is as dire a anomaly as Eureka has ever faced. Jack must do his duty and risk himself to save the town for the umpteenth time. He and Deacon with help from Lucas must figure out how to reverse the polarity. With Zane and Fargo out in the field Jack goes into the danger zone.

    This season has been very good. I loved the Carter/Tess story and the episodes were pretty strong in general. Hopefully we'll see this show back on fairly soon. I recommend seeing this episode for yourself! Thanks for reading...moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • (Jack enters the garage with implants that allow Tess to control his movements.)
      Tess: Stop stalling already and move.
      Carter: Yeah, don't boss me, blondie! (Tess pushes a button that makes him slap his eye) Ah! What is that for?
      Tess: For saying blondie like it's a bad thing.

    • Zoe: Thank you.
      Carter: For what?
      Zoe: For... never giving up on me.
      Carter: That was an option?

    • Henry: That surge in electromagnetism fed back into the strength of the amplifier, creating a loop of building energy, and voila, a new North Pole.
      Lucas: I swear I had no idea.
      Carter: (bending down very close to him) Well, you are gonna have to tell Santa that he needs to move his workshop.

    • Tess: Can we talk?
      Carter: What do you want me to say? I mean, you started something when you knew you were going away.
      Tess: I haven't decided if I'm gonna leave yet.
      Carter: Well you had a job offer that you didn't mention, so--!
      Tess: (interrupting) Which I haven't accepted yet.
      Carter: Well, I-I– it doesn't matter, all right? I'm having a really rough day, so what do you need? What do you want, what?
      Tess: What do you need, what do you want, huh?
      Carter: (quietly) Whatever makes you happy.

    • (Jack and company run to a lab after an alert sounds where they're met by a drone.)
      Carter: Hey Martha, what's up?
      (The drone chirps and moves into the lab, drawing everyone's eyes to the ceiling.)
      Fargo: I am.
      Carter: Of course you are.

    • Tess: Isn't this exciting? I mean, if we find dark energy we could prove the existence of the Higgs boson, discover the nature of quark-gluon interaction, maybe even find a true unification theory.
      Carter: I love it when you talk nerdy to me.

    • Julia Golden: (to Carter) Nemesis is a neutron star that's been theorized to be in binary orbit with our sun.
      Fargo: It crosses earth's orbit every 65 million years, causing an extinction-level event.
      Jo: Like a killer asteroid?
      Fargo: That's not even the half of it. The tidal stresses from the star's gravitational pull could cause a sudden reversal of earth's magnetic poles and unleash earthquakes, tsunamis, total global chaos!
      Julia Golden: The world could literally be turned upside-down.
      Carter: All right, um, I'll check with Henry. How much time do we have?
      Julia Golden: If we're lucky? Maybe 2,000 years.
      Carter: (disbelieving) Two … thou– Mmm. See, that's not so much a problem. So next time, don't bury the lead.
