WAREHOUSE 13: Implosion

Warehouse 13

Warehouse 13

Yessssssss. Yes, yes yes! A character driven storyline supported by interesting plotline makes for one very happy Seeleybaby. Throw in no Claudia, and a helpful relevant dash of Leena, and it was the best episode of the season. Artie, Myka and Pete were all people in this episode, not just characters. We learned more about Artie’s past, Mrs. F’s purpose, and got to see Pete and Myka fight for their team. I loved it. LOVED it.

But let’s not forget…INVISIBILITY! Woot!

THAT whole dealio wasn’t played up enough. That sword was one sharp as heck piece of scary, no? The invisible swordsman (ha!) was only really in a few minutes. When I saw Roger Rees was going to be on this episode, I was mega-pumped. When there were only about ten minutes left in the episode, and we still hadn’t seen him, I was bummed. I thought his ten minutes were choice though, and scary (he cut that guy’s head OFF! When he was INVISIBLE!), so I’m pretty pumped that he’ll probably (please say yes, writers) be around for more! Did you notice the rocking chair in the warehouse at the end of the episode? It started rocking as if someone, invisible, perhaps, was sitting in it. Word!

Pete at the beginning of the episode with the sword was funny fun fun. But I really loved the way Pete felt hurt by Myka’s “you be the smart one this time” comment, and by the way Pete didn’t want to acknowledge Artie’s treason. Myka, though, needed to know the truth, and I like her more for that too.

I want to comment some on the lack (in my opinion) of UST in Warehouse 13. I am enjoying that very much. Right now, the relationship between Pete and Myka is based on loyalty and partnership and friendship; Def a sister brother type vibe. I don’t think anyone’s saying they could NEVER get together romantically, but I find it refreshing that sexual chemistry isn’t being shoved down our throats. Thoughts from you?

They were called ‘Filing clerks that protect us from invisible bad guys’, and they thought that pretty much summed it up, but they both know it’s more than that. Pete said it, but I bet we were all thinking it during the last part of the episode that this week’s title Implosion, represented both the artifact’s power and the way the team sort of imploded on itself. Where Artie used to be the glue of the team, Pete and Myka now had to step up and decide if he and the warehouse was worth their trouble. Dickinson offered them the chance to get out, and they didn’t take it. So now, loyalty is the glue for the team. I like that.

The best line of the night was when Artie was assisted by Mrs. F’s henchman, and Artie said, “I’d tell you, but then he’d have to kill you”. I mean, we all knew the line was coming, but it was still great.

And, I just want to say that I’d like to think Pete would think it was so cool that I knew what a red shirt was too.

The comments are open…time to talk.

    I love the Dartmouth references (3 so far) – did you go to Dartmouth too?

    A second season has been ordered!

    And, my comment has disappeared? Was there a problem with it?

    No Claudia was good…. I’m sorry, but after the ep where she saved her brother, which was fine, she should have just faded away. She’s way too annoying to show up every week.
