Spaceship to Relationship
22 May 2018 | by GunnersMateSee all my reviews

Ship Happens is not as strong an episode as If You Build It, but it is a fairly solid follow up in the continuing story arc. Henry struggles to deal with understand how and why the spacecraft that he and Kim built 20 years ago has returned to Eureka, how BioKim came to be, and his conflicting feelings about the new version of his late paramour. There is plenty of theoretical science-speak and emotional angst. The episode is heavy on the latter. Not just Henry and BioKim, but Jo and Zane, and Carter and Tess. The first has a melancholy feel, the second is a romantic progression, and the third is boring and forced (Tess's character is all over the place and a real square peg into the proverbial round hole that is Carter's love life). It's pretty clear that the real life pregnancy of Salli Richardson-Whitfield (aka Allison) compelled the script writers whip up a plot device to give Carter an interim romance and someone to do some of the story-line heavy lifting - a valiant effort, but the result is overtly manipulative. Let's hope it's a thing of the past sooner than later.
