You misunderstand me. I know why he is investigating the crime--the theft of the device, but why is he working on the solution to the force field problem? that would require people with multiple PHds, who know and understand the physics of the device. He seems like the wrong guy to save Fargo, yet he was the one doing it. No one else was working the problem, except getting the nuke. That's what I was questioning, his working the problem, not his solving the crime.balboa dave said:Eureka is a company town. Carter was a U.S. Marshall assigned to the sheriff position by the same government that funds GD, and is still their employee. So why would it be odd?
