It's a good day for Carter – someone robbed a bank! He rushes to the scene, thrilled to finally have a case that he can crack using good old-fashioned police work, but when he arrives, he finds that it's not that someone stole the money – they stole the bank! The entire building has been rooted from its foundation and gone missing.
As Carter grumpily goes searching for a scientific explanation instead of a masked bandit, the rest of Eureka is under the fierce gaze of Jo as she whips them into physical shape for the Astreus Mission. Grace is not sure she'll make the pull-up challenge, while Zane is exceeding expectations. His criminal past automatically bars him from going on the mission, but he's determined to show the selection committee all they'd be missing out on.
Fargo has other issues. In addition to struggling with the physical challenges of Jo's training, he's also getting some stiff competition for Dr. Holly Marten's heart from Dr. Parrish – or, Isaac, as Holly now calls him. In a competitive display, Parrish lobs a medicine ball at Fargo, which takes him sailing through the air and lands him in a tree! Somehow, the massive medicine ball became light as helium.
