Eureka Finally Tanks

Eureka got canceled by SyFy last fall, taking effect at the end of the season that started 2 weeks ago. The writers decided to protest by destroying the show and the universe in the cruelest ways they could think of. They started out by taking half the characters and placing them in a virtual reality box seemingly four years into the future.

Now besides a lot of platonic friendships, there are three significant relationships among the main characters that have been built up over the past four seasons. With two of these, one of the partners ends up in the virtual reality and one doesn't. And of course, the ones stuck inside get their hearts broken by the fake virtual partners. Just because the writers decided it would be fun to be cruel.

One of the relationships though, (Fargo and Dr Martin (Felicia Day)), was seemingly spared. Both went on the mission at the end of last season that got hijacked, and so both were stuck in the virtual reality together. So up to this point, I was willing to wait and see what happened.

Turns out that the writers were just delaying an episode to give us the taste of hope for a happy ending, in order to make it all that more painful when it was snatched away. In a giant ██████ to Fargo, they killed off Felicia Day in episode 2. So they managed in two episodes to destroy everything that took 4 years to build up.

So I want to write this to the writers of Eureka. You are the most cruel human beings I've ever interacted with. You are ██████ people, and the world would be a better place if you ████ a █████ ███ ███ ████ ███████. ██ ████ ██████████. I hope you ███, slowly and █████████.

After writing the above, I decided that posting it in public might not be the best idea. So I'm compromising and blacking out the choice words. But don't worry, writers of Eureka, I've sent you several emails in which I'm very specific on my thoughts to you.
