Now, this is an interesting development. Dare I say, it’s a lovely one.
I’m reaching for the right mythological term, but the whole… succession of Earthborne “ambassadors” that’s clarified in this episode does carry some mythical qualities. It’s not yet clear, entirely, if Eureka and the flower girl were created under the same circumstances, but I can imagine plenty of details supporting the notion of our gal being the scubs improved or perfected second attempt at establishing a union with the humans. They’ve made a point of stressing that she can bear children, right? That seems like a step up from turning to goo if you ever step outside of your rosy little hut.
Oh! And I totally understand what the whole deal was when Eureka got covered in that carpet of underground snot in the episode from however long ago. Or at least, I think I do. She was trying to return back into the Earth, right? Is that what “acperience” means? She starts having freaky hallucinations whenever she tries to merge back with the natural forces of this planet, right?
I wonder if some added significance will eventually be revealed regarding how Eureka emerges from this “acperience” with her scars mostly removed and her hair largely longer and bouncier. I’d noticed that she looked so much… healthier in the new (totally catchy) intro, but I was wondering if that might’ve come down to a little miscommunication with whatever animation studio was contracted to produce that piece. Looks like it might actually be reflective of what happens in the show, though?
