Thanks. Didn't realize that was him. I'll have to rewatch that scene.

I thought his voice sounded really strange also. I almost thought it wasn't the same actor for a few seconds.

I just checked this scene from the pilot. The other thing they screwed up, besides the cruiser vs. Jeep thing, was that the "other" Zoe in the pilot episode was grinning and waving.

I'm nitpicking, I know. I also realize it can be chalked up to another difference from this reality vs. the original one.

That's odd. It means "End of Series Zoe" remembered seeing herself from the pilot and was expecting the pass. Since it's obvious the writers tried to payoff that opening scene, I wonder why the writers didn't create some scenario where "End of Series Zoe" realized what was coming and waved, rather than she and Jack sitting there seeming to be just as clueless as the other set driving toward Eureka.

Unless, of course, this is an endless recurring loop thing, and the pass we saw in the pilot was not the same pass we saw in the finale. The pass from the pilot will happen sometime, in one of the iterations of the recurring loop, but this wasn't it.

I'm sorry to see the show end. I thought they did a great job with the final episode. I'll miss it.

I think that was supposed to be part of his new persona. Or just a slip up by the actor.

I will miss this show. Nothing monumental. Just a nice quirky small show.

Just watched the dvd's and the gag reel was hilarious and also the commentary for the final episode. They pointed out all kinds of people that were in the scenes that had been in earlier episodes or were part of the crew.

I wish Stark had returned, keeping with Eureka, in some really odd fashion like calling in from a base on the moon or something.

...except that he's dead. (Yes, in this reality as well.)

Well it is tv, we saw him dematerialize in some chamber, but then again people dematerialize in the transporter on Startrek. So maybe he's dead, maybe not.

I liked the ending. I was wondering how they were going to save Eureka.

Did anyone else think, when carter drove through the worm hole initially, that he was going to wind up in the original time line?

They definitively said that he was dead, in dialogue, after they returned from the past.

How many baby daddies does Allison have? I can't remember who Jenna's father is.

Allison was WEARING that brown dress in the first half hour.

Yes! I was thinking that would have been kind of both fun and frustrating!

3 babies, 3 daddies.

And in the dvd commentary they said that she bought the dress for some event to celebrate season 6 and then when it was cancelled she said "I am going to wear this dress."

In a TWO hour finale, I could see them going back to the original timeline. They could resolve the storylines in the "new" timeline (Eureka getting sold, etc.) and the have Carter drive through the worm hole and back to the "old" timeline. I was actually kind of surprised they didn't do a two hour finale actually. A lot of things felt rushed.

Jenna's father is Nathan Stark. On the other hand, we don't know anything about Kevin's father, other than that he's dead too.

Doesn't look good for Jack...spawn & die seems to be her mating pattern.

That would have been really cool and really a Eureka ending. The writers missed their opportunity.

No, but after he jumped into the wormhole to save everyone and he landed in the park, it did occur to me that he might be back in the original timeline...

I may be out in left field on this one, but I had somehow gotten the idea that Allison and Stark had been married before the series started, and had divorced by the time it started. I thought Stark was Kevin's father, and the wedding that never occurred was their second wedding ...

I kinda thought it would end with Eureka collapsing into the wormhole. And in 6 months, a TV movie would have the Sheriff finding a way to bring it all back. Maybe another animated Christmas special.

Again, outsmarting all of the geniuses of GD.

You're right about one thing, they were married before. But Kevin's not from that marriage. His father died shortly after he was born.

I have been an off and on watcher of the show for a few seasons and am wondering was this the first time Vincent's sexuality was referenced?

Me too. They kept showing that statue over and over. It looked deliberate. I know the statue changed between the timelines. But I forgot which was which. I figured that was supposed to be an obvious clue that he went back to the original timeline. But obviously that wasn't the case.

My only real gripe about the last episode: Now we'll never know what the artifact truly was. Yes, I'm still annoyed about that!

According to the Eureka Wiki, there has been at least one other reference:
Quote:
Apart from displaying the somewhat stereotypical flamboyant demeanor and mannerisms, in the episode Games People Play he inquires of Sheriff Carter, who is asking about Deputy Jo Lupo (who has vanished from the holographic representation of the town Carter is trapped in) "Is he cute?"
