||After so many years, the Odyssey
creators couldn't pass up an opportunity to tie up loose ends with
Eugene's missing father. We learn way back in
Last in a Long Line
that Eugene's dad was "lost" in an archaeological expedition, but no
answers were given to this mystery for years.
What better way to do that than with a story arc in which he finally
gets to see his dad?
The main purpose of the
Eugene's search for his father storyline is to clear up loose ends
and not necessarily to keep Leonard Meltsner in Odyssey. After all,
Leonard wasn't in Odyssey for years. He doesn't seem to belong
there. Yet, there is still hope that Leonard and Everett may show up
in a future episode. Keep listening.
