Nathan Stark appeared in episode two of our first season ("Many Happy Returns") and his character experienced a lot of growth in his 30 episodes. He went from being head of Global Dynamics, Allison's ex-husband, and Carter's nemesis, to losing his job, winning back the girl, and, ultimately, making peace with Carter in their competition for Allison's affections. I loved watching his character suffer a great fall, then slowly climb his way back to the top. We got to see Stark in a different light, which for us as writers (and, hopefully, for you as the audience) only deepened our connection to him. Stark was a guy you loved to hate, or hated to love, and his legacy will live on even as we bring in new characters and dramas for our heroes to contend with in the next half of the season. Many thanks to Ed Quinn for his commitment to making Stark the best he could be.
As for whether Nathan Stark will make future appearances in "Eureka," there are currently no plans. However, like I said, on "Eureka" you never know when someone might show up again from the dead. We realize that some fans are upset about the loss of his character, but I can assure you that the legacy of Nathan Stark will continue to be a part of our series. He will not be forgotten.
With Stark gone and Eva Thorne's secret agenda soon to be revealed, we are now immersed in what we affectionately refer to as Season 3.5, the back 13 episodes of our 21 episode order. I can promise you that there are big surprises in store... Part of the challenge that we face is crafting a new mystery/mythology for the back half, and this one is unlike anything we've done so far.
Oh. And if anyone has information on Mary Perkins, please call the number on the right. The Department of Defense has identified her as a "person of interest" and wants any traces of her whereabouts reported immediately.
