"From Fear to Eternity" is the eighth episode of the third season of Eureka.


Zoe is feeling sick. The key to curing her may be in the underground bunker, but Thorne steps up the plan to seal it forever.


A doomsday weapon built in the abandoned military complex is discovered, as is the secret Thorne wants to stay hidden – she's 107 years old, real name Mary Perkins, and was involved in a pre-Eureka research project that developed the first atomic bombs (using radioactive material from meteorites). Meanwhile, Jo and Zane get stuck together, literally, and Zoe's life is imperiled by the aging syndrome that killed Mary's colleagues which she got from slipping in that puddle. Allison is found to be pregnant with Nathan's child. Thorne sacrifices her only chance for a cure for her condition to save Zoe, but the radiation that caused the aging condition is released into the town. The team realizes that the scientists managed to create a cure: the doomsday bomb in the bunker was a fail-safe to neutralize the radiation if it ever got out and the scientists ran out of time to use it on themselves. The bomb is triggered and the town is saved. Meanwhile, Jo and Zane are finally freed and renew their seemingly failing relationship. After Jack lets Thorne go to find a new life as he feels she's a victim too, General Mansfield tells Carter that his services are no longer needed by the town of Eureka.
