In the latest episode of Eureka, they were experiencing some… issues with their emergency drills software. It got a wee bit out of hand, to say the least. And during the episode, they rattled off a lat and lon location to place a shield generator to protect the region that the town of Eureka is in! And a buddy of mine looked it up!
But first, since I have your attention, I thought I’d toss out a few other observations so far, in this final season of Eureka:
Andy and his emergency coil, and all he had to do was “Whip it out!“ LOL.
Add that to the “premature evacuation” and various other phrases, I see that the creative team is having as much fun as they can with this final season of the show.
And in the previous episode where many folk had to act like Jack was a bit of a hoot too. But we’re also getting a lot of eye candy time with the girls.
Jo Lupo (Erica Cerra) is having more skin time (Nothing Mr. Skin would notice though) and her hair is down more often.
Allison (Salli Richardson-Whitfield) even had a bedroom scene in her skivvies, and I was totally stunned to see the 6-pack she’s built up. Wow! Who’d a thunk!
All joking aside, they’re beautiful women and I think it’s awesome that they’re being showcased in numerous ways (not just via the skin scenes, nor is it just the ladies) so that they might be able to get other acting jobs down the road.
Fargo (Neil Grayston) is having one heck of an emotional roller coaster going on, in regards to Holly (Felicia Day) and he’s been incredibly believable. I was finding myself incredibly sad for the guy!
We even had the dark side of Andy (Kavan Smith) in the beginning of this season, which was actually creepy. But showcased how serious of a character Smith can put out. Like I said, creepy good on that one!
But the MOST important thing I’ve taken away from the latest episode is a curious set of coordinates they tossed out in the episode titled “Worst Case Scenario.”
Carter (Colin Ferguson) had to put up a device that emanated a shield to protect a part of the town from some incoming missiles and he had to put it in just the right spot… so they radio’d him the lat and lon to put the device.
National Forest Development Road 4515
Winema National Forest, Chiloquin, OR 97624 0.5 mi S
These coordinates point to a location off of Co Hwy 600/Williamson River Rd., right next to a fire rd titled NF-4515. This location is just E, NE of Chiloquin, Oregon, in the Winema National Forest.
HA! We gotch’ya now people! We found where Eureka might be hiding!
But since they’re having fun with it, so am I.
This last season has been rather enjoyable which is making this also a very bittersweet experience. Below is a list of the upcoming remaining episodes we have left, leaving us with the series finale on July 16th. All, way too soon.

And this will end the run of fan-favorite show on Syfy.
If you’re angry, don’t be angry at Syfy. They kept the show going for fans despite the ratings. But the timing of Comcast taking over and then the show getting axed seemed circumstantially strong.
In one piece, I point out something that one of the executive producers had to say about this:
In another, a fan of Brusimm finally made contact with Comcast about the cancellation, and got back a ridiculous form letter about the cancellation, including the misspelling of the network. Seriously people, you need to update your form letters more than once every few years:
We’re in the midst of saying goodbye to a great showcase of scientific comedy or dramedy… and Eureka will be sorely missed.
In this case, it does seem that the machine of profit-minded greed may have just stepped in and stomped on a fan-fave. (And if you know me, you know I don’t usually say that about show cancellations.)
