Lexi hadn't made me angry in previous episodes, but in this episode I wanted her to GTFO. In what world does she have the right to dictate to Carter how to keep his
daughter safe? And if my aunt had given me permission to miss three days of school my mother would have punched her in the face. You know it's bad when I hated her more than Zane. And her ability to run around and know about GD stuff and actually be allowed inside
GD itself was really, really annoying. I think they went the wrong direction this season, relaxing the rules about Eureka's secrecy and...well, commercializing it, for lack of a better term. I think it worked a lot better when it was a much tighter, closed-off community.
And as for Zane, he was like, a normal dude. He still had permasmirk etched on his face, but I was able to live with it. I even hated Zoe's floppy boyfriend more than Zane. Man, it's not good when viewers hate most of your secondary characters.
Speaking of secondary, they're still doing that irritating thing where Jo disappears as soon as she's done with her exposition. You know, she cares about Zoe a lot too, probably just as much as Aunt Annoying. She'd have gotten right in line to put on the vest and go down there. Where on earth was she? Writing traffic tickets?
And which of us did not
know that Chuck was Captain Eureka? If they introduce a new character in an episode, odds are he or she is the crazy scientist behind the plot of the week. This one was clumsily handled.
At least Henry and Carter are back together again, bantering over old radios and whatnot. We even got to see Henry slap on one of his many labels. It made me all nostalgic for season 1.
