Television Review: Eureka, "Reprisal"
by R.J. Carter
Published: July 18, 2011
Dr. Holly Marten (Felicia Day) joins the cast just in time for Eureka to experience one of its regular bouts of madness. With Allison (Salli Richardson-Whitfield) out of town, it's up to Jack (Colin Ferguson) and Allison's son Kevin to solve the multiple mysteries of the inexplicable and even dangerous behavior of Fargo, Zane, Henry and Jo.
Yes, all of your favorites are acting strangely -- well, more strangely than usual, at least. Fargo (Neil Grayston) sees the arrival of Holly as a threat against his position, and preps himself for a facedown by listening to Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger." It really pumps him up, because his reception for Holly is one that's cold and lethal. Shortly thereafter, Zane (Niall Matter) delivers a shocking housewarming gift to Jo (Erica Cerra) on the day of her moving into her new home. And Henry (Joe Morton), given over to the romance of his six-month anniversary, is driven to find a way to make the moment last -- which ends up being the biggest threat of all!
While the adventures in town provide quite the music playlist, the more sinister subplots are threading their way into the series in the form of Allison's trip. On the way to her medical conference, she comes upon an auto accident, and spends the episode helping a grief-stricken daughter track and treat her injured father. It's an event that's going to have far-reaching consequences for Allison and Eureka for several episodes to come.
Eureka, "Reprise," airs Monday, July 18, at 8PM ET/PT on Syfy.
