    Didn't the computer Beverly's group was using get confiscated when they were caught? Part of it was taken to GD which is where Zane and Fargo discovered that Holly was still in there, but then that part got taken away as well.

    I didn't say it made sense! That was just my understanding :)

    Actually, I thought the whole thing was confiscated, I just figured that they had gotten it back somehow.

    That original computer could not keep the simulation running properly with only one extra person plugged into the system. How will it EVER function with the whole town plugged into it? It would completely break down!

    I'll be sorely disappointed if they DON'T address it. That would be very appropriate...keep Eureka going, but Carter leaving to meet Allison in SF to live "happily every after"......**barf**.....

    The NPCs wanted the 'real' people back in their pods, so they could work in the virtual world and harvest their work, as per their original programming. This suggests that the NPCs weren't smart enough to do the actual research, just smart enough to create enough physical bodies to coral everyone in and let the real human intelligence do the hard work.

    Obviously this leaves the Beverly angle unaddressed, but I think their whole motivation was just to follow their original programming. We don't have a clear indication that Beverly has escaped the confines of her prison and was able to control the NPCs at all.

    I thought Beverly was on the loose after she put Senator Wyn into the fake cell in the computer...

    Err. Right. I got my antagonists mixed up.

    They could make Beverly even less evil in the finale, by delivering the actual masterminds of the people behind the Astraeus hijacking and general espionage.
