A failed experiment causes an unexpected change
14 November 2018 | by TweekumsSee all my reviews

As this episode opens Sheriff Jack Carter is being pressured to take a medical. To avoid this he responds to a call out from Dr Carl Carlson, a scientist who is paranoid about germs and wants a lift to work at Global Dynamic. Once there he undertakes an experiment concerning cell regeneration but something goes seriously wrong; an explosion throws him through a glass wall. He is quickly fired and told he must leave Eureka. Unable to take that he calls the sheriff suggesting he intends to take his life. Jack finds him on a bridge threatening to jump; both of them end up falling. Jack lands on Carl and survives with a few cracked ribs; Carl is more seriously injures but soon starts to recover. Later it becomes clear that he isn't just healing but is somehow evolving.

This episode was rather fun; largely down to the guest appearance by Saul Rubinek as Carl Carlson. He does a solid job in the role... no doubt it helped him get the job as Artie in 'Warehouse 13'; a series taking place in the same universe as 'Eureka'. His character's story is interesting with a few nice twists. It also leads to some character development for other characters. The side story concerning Jack's trying to avoid Allison Blake's demand that he undergo a medical provided some laughs, advanced their relationship and most importantly didn't detract for the episode's main story. The episode concludes well with an ending that answers some questions before immediately raising more. Overall an impressive episode.
