Reilly was supposed to monitor the Colonists' progress on G889 and, supposedly, report back to the Council on their activities. Julia believed that he was a real person, located somewhere either on the planet or in orbit. In the last episode, however, Reilly was discovered to be part of a sophisticated biological monitoring program called EVE. EVE was created and set into orbit by Dr. Franklin Bennett, a Council scientist sent to explore G889 and report his findings. The Colonists discovered Reilly's true nature when the EVE computer began to malfunction, causing them to become ill. With Yale's help, the colonists "reset" EVE, and Reilly was back to his old maleveolent self. Whether Reilly was an actual person or a creation of EVE is discussed ad nauseam by E2 fans everywhere.
