    Shown 06/Dec/11

    Eureka Eureka [Season 5, Episode 1] Lost
    Shown 16/Apr/12

    The lady Doc wakes up strapped into the pilot's seat in the Astraeus ship. The ship is about to crash-land, so she wakes the command crew. And as you will know from the trailers, they end up back at Eureka after being gone for four years!

    The town has been put in the charge of new management. Fargo and his Second in Command were both on the Astraeus when it went MIA, and Mayor Henry (Joe Morton - Terminator 2 ) took the blame for it. Andy (Kavan Smith - Stargate: Atlantis ) is now head of Security at GD, and he has a sinister side. They made a whole army of androids in his image, obeying his every command. And the flying drones keep the population in check.

    The epilogue gives an explanation that covers all the unanswered questions. We also get a story arc set up for the Season.

    The previous ep's cliff-hanger left Eureka's fate in the balance. GD's funding is cut, it is being sold off and privatised. The crew are being re-employed elsewhere. Not good ...

    Will every happy couple get their happy ever after? Andy (Kavan Smith - Stargate: Atlantis ) and Sarah, Fargo and Holly ( Felicia Day ), Zane and Jo, Sheriff Carter (Colin Ferguson - Haven ) and Allison, Mayor Henry (Joe Morton - Terminator 2 ) and his wife?

    This is a great chance to tie up all the loose ends and to say goodbye to a lot of recurring characters. Not bad, for a show that lasted five Seasons on a single premise.
