26 1 "Bad to the Drone" Bryan Spicer Jaime Paglia July 29, 2008 (2008-07-29)
Success comes at a price, as several citizens of Eureka discover when the DOD sends corporate fixer Eva Thorne, reputed for completely revamping more Fortune 500 companies than anyone else, to town during an Anti-Missile test that sees the target drone named Martha threatening Eureka. Martha terrorizes the town, blowing up the Viper (a weapon that shot down all other drones like her) and stalks Carter, destroys Carter's car, and attacks Carter and Jo at the sheriff's office. They discover that Martha went from having the mindset of a toddler to the mindset of a teenager, and find out that the wife of the scientist who built her increased Martha's intelligence. At Cafe Diem Martha befriends Zoe and attacks Thorne and her escort, the suck-up (and Fargo's arch nemesis) Larry. Larry is knocked unconscious. Martha is taken to GD. Carter and Jo investigate and find a remote control device on her. They discover that Larry put the device on her so he could control her and impress Thorne. However, with her teenage mindset Martha did not care for being controlled and attacked him. At Global Dynamics Martha wakes up and releases other drones similar to her. The fleet of drones heads toward Eureka, and begin taking down the EM shield that would keep them inside of the Eureka city limits. Thorne calls in a squadron of F-16's to stop the drones just in case they escape. Carter, Stark, Fargo, and Allison think that Martha just wants room to breathe, and she feels that she cannot do that inside of the EM shield. But Martha may also be trying to prove herself as being independent and may plan world domination, which would cause World War III. So they purposefully take the EM shield down, hoping Martha will see it as an olive branch. The drones and the F-16's charge each other and Zoe (understanding what Martha is going through) talks to Martha over the radio and is able to convince her to come back to Eureka. The drones disengage and return to Global Dynamics

They find that he is de-evolving into a reptile, and so are the other 10 people who have been in Lab 27 for the past 11 years. Stark eventually comes down into the Lab to help them, and Henry (who is in prison) is hooked up with a holographic device and appears in the Lab as well. Further investigation shows that everyone is turning into reptiles, and that a scientist up at the surface wanted Bob to get sick so he used the artificial lighting to irradiate Bob's garden, hoping that Bob would just get sick, but he turned into a reptilian humanoid and everyone else is too, including Carter, Allison, and Stark. Bob escapes and grabs Allison, planning on eating her. So Carter, Stark, and holo-Henry shoot him and a cure is found. Thorne gets Henry a pardon and he returns to Eureka.

Meanwhile, Jo and Zane get stuck together, literally, and Zoe's life is imperiled by the aging syndrome that killed Mary's colleagues which she got from slipping in that puddle. Allison is found to be pregnant with Nathan's child. Thorne sacrifices her only chance for a cure for her condition to save Zoe, but the radiation that caused the aging condition is released into the town. The team realizes that the scientists managed to create a cure: the doomsday bomb in the bunker was a fail-safe to neutralize the radiation if it ever got out and the scientists ran out of time to use it on themselves. The bomb is triggered and the town is saved. Meanwhile, Jo and Zane are finally freed and renew their seemingly failing relationship.

Jo fills in as active sheriff while Carter is taking the test, as well as taking care of Zoe while Carter is otherwise occupied. Allison wants to put a new security measure into effect that uses a DNA scan to grant or deny access to various points of Global Dynamics. Henry doesn’t want to install the new devices, so Jo is called in as the deciding vote. Jo decides to have the devices installed and is the first one scanned for identification, but the device malfunctions and nearly electrocutes her. When Jo comes to it is discovered that someone had stolen a critical piece of the device. Allison wants to pull Carter out of his test to have him help find the thief, but Jo insists that she can track down the thief herself. When Jo asks Henry about the missing piece of equipment, he tells her that he is also missing an important piece of equipment. Leaving Henry to ponder a possible link between the two stolen items, Jo heads for the Smart House to help Zoe with homework. Jo finds that walking a mile in Carter's shoes is proving to be a challenge, especially when Zoe wants to blow off work and go to karaoke night at Café Diem. Jo's still feeling the effects of her near-electrocution and forbids it, wanting nothing more than to sleep. Zoe uses this as an opportunity to sneak out. Jo soon catches Zoe performing at the Café. Yet instead of grounding her, Jo joins in the fun, drinking too much as she sings and flirts with Fargo. Jo ends up kissing Fargo just as Zane enters the Café. Jo insists that she's fine, but Allison and Henry worry about Jo's state of mind after she begins behaving more erratically. A third theft then occurs and the DNA scanner identifies Jo as the thief.

Several mysterious events take place after Dr. Drechmeyer is supposedly contacted by his late mother, a famed clairvoyant. He thinks that the readings on his new energy-measuring device indicate the presence of ghosts. His lab partner and ex-wife, Mary-Beth Curtis, fears his obsession will cost them their funding, but something strange is happening. Carter finds a car parked in the middle of the road, but its driver - a spirited and beautiful new arrival, Dr. Tess Fontana - denies leaving it there. Tess leaves Carter annoyed, yet intrigued. Meanwhile, Carter's sister, Lexi, enjoys her new "Invis-Apparel" maternity shirt courtesy of GD, which completely hides her pregnant tummy. It also proves useful when the twins' world-traveling father arrives in town unannounced. Lexi hides her condition, not sure that Duncan is fatherhood material, much to Zoe's disapproval. Later, at Café Diem, Carter finds a highly agitated Dr. Drechmeyer claiming the high readings he sees prove the spirits are active. Suddenly, various objects begin to fly about and Carter has to tackle Tess Fontana to keep the espresso machine from decking her. Then, to Carter's surprise, Allison arrives and greets Tess with open arms. They are old college friends and she's been brought in for a secret project. Following another energy burst, Allison admits that GD has decided to re-open Section 5 under Tess's oversight. And she wants Carter and Tess to work together to solve the paranormal activity — even though they clearly can't stand each other. When Tess gives Carter a tour, they encounter a strange device, and some odd sensations, in one of the labs. Leaving the area, they realize that no one can see or hear them. This causes them to ponder whether they are dead; however, Tess believes they've somehow crossed into another dimension. Returning to the lab, they find Dr. Johnson recovering from an unsuccessful attempt to break out. His research on inter-dimensional travel created a temporary door into the Fifth Dimension. Unless they can re-calibrate Johnson's device before Henry and Allison unknowingly shut it down from the other side, the trio could be trapped inside forever.

By the time Carter determines that Big Ed is the Globidium thief, there is nothing left of "The Cleaner" but a pool of green goo. It seems that Big Ed had a pet project that grew out of control. Carter and Tess find a container for Ed's radiation-devouring microorganism that is now empty. It seems the blob had Ed for lunch and has now gone out for dinner. "Team Green" would be a likely target but Duncan, returning to confront Lexi, concocts a mud bath to cure their radioactive condition. In a scene reminiscent of "Psycho", the radiation-starved blob attacks. Carter comes to the rescue, but the mutating green menace retreats down the drain and heads for Eureka's last source of Globidium — the Smart House.

Famous quotes containing the word season:

    The season developed and matured. Another year’s installment of flowers, leaves, nightingales, thrushes, finches, and such ephemeral creatures, took up their positions where only a year ago others had stood in their place when these were nothing more than germs and inorganic particles. Rays from the sunrise drew forth the buds and stretched them into long stalks, lifted up sap in noiseless streams, opened petals, and sucked out scents in invisible jets and breathings.
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)
