Eureka Review: Dust in the Wind

at . Comments

In never fails: you bring your dead girlfriend back to life by building her a new body and downloading her memories left in a matrix program and she goes evil on you and begins to replace your friends with evil copies.

Carter Searches For a Saboteur

"Mirror, Mirror" was originally written to be the set-up and intro for the original finale of Eureka Season Five.

While the fates have been cruel and we won't get another season of this great show, we can all be thankful that Jamie Paglia and his team were given an extra episode this season to wrap things up. Which means we have two more episodes to go!

I hope it also means we won’t be left wondering who’s home upstairs inside Holly head because it certainly isn't the lovable geeky girl Fargo fell in love with. 

My guess is Senator Wyn. We know she got put into a Matrix world somewhere by Beverly Barlow; it stands to reason she might have piggy-backed into GD along with Holly when they downloaded her. Hell, maybe she was there the whole time, we have no idea where Beverly stashed her (or her body).

Has anyone kept count of how many times Andy has gone “evil” this season? Kavan Smith must have had a ball being able to play both a good version and repeated bad version of Andy. While Smith may technically be the second actor to play Andy, he has done an amazing job and I wouldn’t trade him in for anyone.

How awesome was Zane? He managed to keep Jo’s integrity in place and still offer her the help she needed, even if it wasn’t what she thought she wanted. I usually take that as a sign of a strong relationship, the ability to know what the other person needs even when they aren’t sure themselves. 

Sadly the same can’t be said for Henry and Grace. Poor Henry wants to take responsibility for an action he technically didn’t commit. I think Grace said it best with

You made me a better person. If you're looking to take responsibility for something, take responsibility for that. | permalink

I agree. Henry should take responsibility for his actions, helping Grace become a better person. He shouldn't try to assume those of his alter-ego from this timeline. It doesn’t serve anyone for him to go to jail.

Oh, wait, maybe we can send the bio-printed copy to jail. Or better yet, make a bio-print of Grace and let it go to jail. And, before you say it wouldn’t work, remember – this is Eureka!
