Nightmare Fuel / Eureka

Go To

  • Eureka has a mortality rate twice the national average.

    open/close all folders 

    Season One 
  • The entirety of "Blink" - especially what happens to the kid who hits the car; the freaky thought of a drug that strong; and the horrific come-down you would face afterwards with your body starved of electrolytes and water.
  • The implications of Jason Anderson's memory wiper.
    Kim: I don't know anything anymore. Maybe I cheated on him. How many times did I catch Jason cheating on me and he made it all better? Maybe I left him. How many times did I tell Jason I'm leaving, and I walk out that door and boom, none of it happened?

    Season Two 
  • The aftermath of the Artifact in Season 2. Not only is Kim Anderson killed horrifically, but people who were in the general area of the artifact start spontaneously combusting, with only two exceptions: Stark (thanks to some timely intervention by Henry and Allison) and Kevin. And in the latter's case, there's a whole host of other changes that happen as a result.

    Season Three 
  • From "What About Bob?", Bob's transformation is rather unsettling.
  • In "Best In Faux", some of the robotic dog's "deaths" are rather nasty to see.

    Season Four 
  • "All The Rage", watching just about everyone who'd been turned into a rage zombie. It's a bit frightening watching them destroy anything in their path. Not to mention them chasing after Fargo, looking ready to tear him apart.

    Season Five 
  • Evil!Andy in the episode "Lost". It's amazing how chilling that omnipresent smile and happy-go-lucky demeanor can be under the right (or wrong) circumstances.
  • The ending of "The Real Thing", when Holly is murdered in order to keep the true nature of the virtual world a secret. What makes it even more frightening is the fact that it's the simulated version of Jack who kills her.
    • In "Force Quit", Zane barely manages to avoid the same fate.
  • In a sense, Evil!Andy makes a return in "Smarter Carter". Only this time he goes so far as to steal energy from SARAH.
    SARAH: Andy, what are you doing?
    Andy: (sporting a rather creepy smile) Recharging.

How well does it match the trope?
