History WMG / Eureka

Go To




to:

It would make sense after the original Artifact "died". All the residual energies would have to go somewhere. Some of that energy ended up in Kevin, who's to say it couldn't find it's way into the people responsible for creating new Artifacts.



to:

[[WMG: Someone else travelled back in time during Founder's Day and was stuck in the past]]
Alison, Fargo, Henry Jack and Jo all arrived in different places in the past. They found each other largely by chance. It's possible someone else was included in what Kevin did but they didn't end up in the military base, thereby not encountering the others. So when everyone travelled back to the present, they didn't.

After 10 years stuck in the past, this person intervened to take Pierre Fargo's place so he never got frozen (explaining how Fargo's became a "legacy") and so could be unfrozen in the present (or rather a couple of years before Founder's Day like Pierre was). Once they were awoken in the present, they set about intervening in the lives of the people who'd "abandoned" them in the past. They sabotaged Jack and Alison's relationship, which actually resulted in his relationship with Tess starting sooner and hence being stronger (hence she didn't leave). Out of spite they used the memory wiping device to make Henry forget his love for Kim, which actually resulted in him being open to getting together with Grace (she was in Eureka before Founder's Day but Henry just didn't notice her in the original timeline). Of course, they sabotaged Jo's relationship with Zane. Without Zane in her life to distract her, Jo was less tolerant of not being promoted leading to her quitting and ending up at GD.


Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: The universe is fated to loop-end in 2010 because of Henry]]
In the season 1 finale, we learn Henry maneuvers to become director of GD in order to go back in time and save Kim. However, doing so ultimately causes realities intersecting in 2010 to collapse on one another. While Jack does go back in time himself to stop Henry from saving Kim that sets everything in motion, Henry remains committed to repeating the same steps (in the end of the first episode of season 2, Henry meets with Allison in order to get a job at GD so he can start working his way to the directorship). While this arc is ultimately abandoned and forgotten, the series ends with...Henry becoming director of GD. With Henry being Henry (as in the Henry that already traveled back in time to save Kim despite knowing the consequences of what would happen), he uses GD's resources to send himself back in time to save Kim, thus putting the universe timeline back onto the season 1 finale path. Which ultimately leads to all timelines collapsing, which leads to Carter going back in time to stop Henry...This cycle continues for all eternity.

[[WMG: ''{{Warehouse 13}}'' (and by extension, ''Series/{{Eureka}}'' and ''Series/{{Alphas}}'') take place in the "Normal Again" world from ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''.]]
Magic clearly hasn't overrun the world in ''Normal Again'' as it had in the Wishverse and the "What if Buffy died" verse, so the [[RightHandVersusLeftHand bureaucratic confusion]] amongst various government agencies ensures that the [[{{Warehouse 13}} Secret Service]] and [[Series/{{Alphas}} DCIS]] are unaware of the Watchers and the Slayer, and the British are still ticked about Warehouse 12 being moved so the Slayer and most Watchers don't know of the existence of the Warehouse. Most of the creators of artifacts put their own brand of energy into the artifacts by the focus and near-ritualistic repetition of what they did (see: witchcraft and its demon-worshipper equivalents), strengthened (or even [[TheThemeParkVersion changed outright]]) by their [[CommonKnowledge public]] [[TheThemeParkVersion image]]. Alphas are probably unrelated to magic, and more closely tie into the MadScience of Series/{{Eureka}} and [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Warren Mears]].

Most of the geniuses in Eureka are of the Hi INT/Lo WIS variety, nerds who have lots of "great" ideas, but terrible in coming up with practical applications or ones that don't have absolutely lousy side effects. Jack is much more of an engineer type, who prefers to use Occam's razor on situations (something that bit him in the ass when he had to be evaluated along Eureka's standards). In a different show, Jack would easily be the smartest of the group, as he can IndyPloy and/or [=MacGyver=] himself out of any problem. He's just surrounded by a group of people whose intelligence is as much an asset as a liability.
