When Jack walks into his work area, Dactylos is making sparks with a MIG welder, holding the electrode end several inches above his work. The actual use of a MIG welder involves holding the electrode end about half an inch above the work surface so that gas can flow around the arc to prevent oxidation of the deposited metal.

Jo: We just became the richest town in the world!
Henry Deacon: Well, that's one way to look at it. Gold is a soft metal, so it doesn't bear the same weight as steel, so our infrastructure could be collapsing. We'd be rich, but dangerously unstable.
Jo: Like Paris Hilton?

The Crisis is Only a Vehicle
19 May 2018 | by GunnersMateSee all my reviews

All That Glitters has a reasonable crisis and some solid humor, its just not all that engrossing. Things in Eureka mysteriously start turning to gold and digging through he layers as to why is mildly entertaining plus Carter is a funny and protective father (which is the best bit of the experience). It's an easy watch throughout the episode but before the closing credits roll it becomes clear that everything that happened was only a vehicle for propelling the story into the next episode. The viewer just feels so used... One look at the season episode listing tells us that we are prepping for the season finale. That fact rather jades the whole story experience. Wish it didn't
