Warehouse 13 Season 4 Finale Review: Bringing Down the House

Warehouse 13 S04E20: "The Truth Hurts"


Oh, Warehouse 13, always with the really great finales to (sort of) make up for seasons that sag in the middle. I knew I could count on you to be awesome in the end... mostly. I mean, the truth hurts and the truth is that "The Truth Hurts" once again featured a warehouse in peril, but ehhh, Anthony Head and BAMF-y Claudia facing off for control makes me all tingly, so I'm willing to overlook the been-there-done-that portions of our finale's plot. 

I mean, just look at that face:


You in danger, Paracelsus. 

After dropping the bombshell that Paracelsus was a former warehouse caretaker just like our beloved Mrs. Frederic, Warehouse 13 proceeded to destroy everything we hold dear: Claudia and Artie's BFF-dom, Mrs. F's place in the warehouse hierarchy, Pete's generally lighthearted nature, and Myka's,well, Myka's everything. 

With Paracelsus un-bronzed and ready for world domination, his initial link to the warehouse kicked in and began to override Mrs. Frederic's. This would have sucked simply even if Paracelsus only had access to all the toys in the ever-expanding library of crazy, but his override didn't simply sap Mrs. F of her influence, it also slowly killed her. Oh, and Paracelsus also figured out how to recreate his immortality-granting experiment from 500 years ago because what the warehouse gang needed in addition to a crazy-evil, narcissistic super-genius running the show was an immortal one. YES. 

Guys, I'm so torn. On one hand, I'm so Team Paracelsus it hurts because he's a dick and he's Giles + an out of control ego + nefarious evildoing on overdrive and his ability to completely not even give half a damn about anyone or anything except reaching his supposedly amazing potential reminds me of the reason I doodle pink Sharpie hearts around Lex Luthor from time to time. If we were talking about a Paracelsus vs. Pete or even a Paracelsus vs. Steve situation, I'd apologize and wave my giant Paracelsus #1 foam finger high—but that's not the case. It's Paracelsus vs. Claudia and I can't not cheer for Claudia. Girl had it rough this finale. 

In addition to watching Mrs. Frederic fade and prepping herself to inevitably take on her Caretaker duties—the very same duties she didn't want to touch with a ten-foot pole earlier this season—Claudia also learned that her sister Claire, previously believed to have died in the same car accident that killed Claudia's parents, is actually alive and well and apparently real evil. So evil, in fact, that Artie concealed his knowledge of her survival from Claudia, and Claudia's from Claire, in order to protect Claudia from... I don't know. Warehouse 13 hasn't taken us that far yet. 


Claudia was understandably not pleased with this revelation, but before we could go beyond the obligatory poop-face and accusations of BETRAYAL AND LIES OMG, Pete tried to turn Paracelsus mortal again and accidentally made P and the warehouse mind-meld instead. So now, Paracelsus doesn't even have to touch an artifact to ruin your day with it. Nice going, Petey. Claudia saved Mrs. F's life by relieving her of Caretaker duties. Then it was time to blow that crazy popsicle stand before Super P changed his mind about not using the team for guinea pigs and brought his "house" down on their heads—except for Claudia, who was confident that the warehouse would protect her as she fought Paracelsus for its soul, bringing us to that delicious stand-off shot that "The Truth Hurts" closed on. 


At first, the big secret about Claudia's sister seemed like cheap drama for the sake of drama, but all of that hinting at Claudia having been "born" for her role as Mrs. Frederic's successor and the fact that Artie had known about Claire for years raises some interesting questions about the entire Donovan family and its connection to the warehouse. After all, Claudia originally came to the warehouse looking to drop a little vengeance on Artie for taking her brother away from her with their botched teleportation experiment—which was based on an artifact from the warehouse. The teleportation experiment took place years after Claudia's parents, and supposedly her sister, had been killed, and Joshua's apparent loss eventually drove Claudia down the path that led her to the warehouse. From here, it honestly looks like some sort of vast conspiracy to force Claudia toward her warehouse-sanctioned "destiny," and knowing Claudia, she probably had that very same thought herself (though it had to have been fleeting, what with the impending immediate doom and all.) 

We'd already known that Artie and the Donovans go back pretty far, but now it appears that their relationship is older than we originally thought. So... why? Is Claudia just that special? Or is the whole family tied to the warehouse in some way? How evil must Claire be for Artie (and Mrs. Frederic? What about the Regents?) to declare her an enemy of the warehouse, unfit to be reunited with her sister under any circumstances? 

And how did Artie get a hold of her DNA? This is all weird and fishy and I love it. 


Between Paracelsus in charge, the whole Donovan family conspiracy coming to light, and Myka apparently taking a turn for the worse, the boredom that (for me) plagued so much of the second half of Season 4 is little more than a bad memory as of this finale. I'd made peace with Warehouse 13's cancellation, with just a limited-run fifth season to wrap up the loose ends. I was ready to say goodbye, but now I'm not so sure. Will a mere six episodes be enough to do everything justice? And even putting any closure concerns aside, I'm already nostalgic for a memory that "The Truth Hurts" effortlessly jogged: When Warehouse 13 is good, it's very good. 


NOTES FROM THE LIBRARY OF CRAZY

– Ghost Leena Strikes Again: Can we puh-leeze address that, Warehouse 13? Please? I'm not mad, I'm just curious. 

– "I liked you better as your usual annoying 12-year-old self." Ugh, no, Myka, shut up.

– Details, Warehouse 13, DETAILS: Aren't you supposed to fast before surgery? Unless Myka's procedure was an emergency... but I was under the impression that even though it got bumped up in priority due to the pain onset, it was still exploratory. Or something. 

– Honestly, Myka's story seemed a bit rushed this week, like it was written simply to orchestrate the big Pete/Paracelsus disaster. Despite being such a huge, world-shaking arc for her, Myka has yet to actually have the spotlight to herself during her Big C plot.

– "We don't use artifacts!" YOU USE THEM ALL THE TIME, PETE! ALL THE TIME! 

– What are your Claudia/Claire/Donovan Family theories? 

– Claudia and Claire are similar names. Twins? ARE THEY TWINS? 

– How do you think Myka's story will play out? Will Paracelsus be redeemed and heal her, or is Pete gonna have to go steal the Philosopher's Stone or something?

– Any other predictions for Season 5? Wants and desires?

– What'd you think of Season 4 as a whole?

– Thanks for reading, gang! I'll see you when Warehouse 13 returns! Kisses! Mwah!

Ware house 13 will be missed greatly I will never understand why this has to happen but since it is going to happen I thank everyone who is responsible for making this show possible and I'd like to wish you all the very best.

Well, just spent the past week watching all 4 seasons. It only got better for artie and claudia, as well as jinks and mrs fredericks. The finale was epic, this show is awesome, I'm somewhat glad paracelcus got free because as he was suspended there and pete was going through the plan I couldn't help but think it seemed too easy.

I agree with the lackluster'ness of pete and myka. They were great in the first 3 seasons but they started to become predictable and every scene seemed to be mirror images of countless previous scenes. As well as the whole "Artie is claudia's father" thing I have to admit I there too but figured they wouldn't be that obvious with it, yet the whole twin sister thing surprised me. It makes sense though because they have a whole host of cards to play now, I'm thinking the car crash wasn't a car crash, and was actually an artifact that she got ahold of (although she would've *one would assume* have been really young at the time) somehow purposefully killed her parents and they didn't wanna tell her or something.

As to where she's at, if she's so evil obviously she isn't just walking around. Since she wasn't in the bronzer (seeing as jinks and claudia were there the whole time and it was broken), the most obvious explanation would be the janis coin, leaving her somewhere with her mind erased (and would be fresh on everyones mind since it was referenced with paracelcus).. and no other explanation would work for why he could so easily and quickly get a blood sample or contain such a dangerous person.

Mykas cancer was retarded, its like they just threw it in your face as a last resort to not having or wanting to figure out something more juicy and like an episode later boom surgery and she is seemingly going to die. No worries though, personally she's my least favorite character at this point. Not a dislike just got bland and predictable, pete too but he still makes me laugh occasionally.

Could go on and on, this show is awesome, I came into it after watching the librarian thinking it would be half assed version of that but ended up being amazing, not because of the artifacts (as I had hoped) but because of the characters. Double edged sword but I hope they don't sell the rights and do a spinoff WH14 because it most likely wouldn't have hardly any if any of the same characters and like I just said they are the whole reason this show is awesome and if they picked up with a new cast and used some kind of retarded "wh13 exploded and we picked up and started wh14 here with new agents blah blah" i most likely wouldn't watch it.

Also, (as if I didn't type enough) it would seem likely that they would kill off paracelcus (despite everyones love with him, I admit he emanates badassery with the whole slow motion theme song stuff) in the first episode, and the remaining 5 are going to be claudia taking over WH13 as caretaker and the "big bad" as everyones referring to it, will be claudias evil sister. I'm just hoping they don't go nuclear (figuratively speaking) and kill off everyone). I wouldn't be surprised if they killed off most of them though before the shows over. Pete, Myka, Mrs. Frederick, Artie…all fair game and the season finale being the conflict being over with and just claudia and steve being left (seems fitting since they are both young in terms of everything and have bright futures) to continue the warehouse legacy.

But this would leave the whole pete family warehouse legacy angle open and unanswered but it isn't a huge angle, his mom is a regent selected for her insight to children and unintentionally raised to be an agent, not exactly conspiracy material or anything and doesn't NEED to be elaborated.

I didn't think Myka's cancer was that much of a surprise though... She's been getting paler and paler, though that might just have been a coincidence.

I agree this opens up so many possibilities that six episodes will not be able to really deal with. So many questions. I am just confused why they are canceling Warehouse 13 at all. I don't think viewers are a problem. This is my favorite SyFy show.

Claire might be Claudia's twin. I personally think, as evil as they make her out to be, she's going to team up with Claudia and take down the now immortal, warehouse controlling Paracelsus (loving the guy for his manipulation of Pete).

I don't understand how Paracelsus has an effect on Mrs. Fredrick and is basically reducing her mind to mush but the NEXT head of warehouse AKA Claudia will not be affected. Correct me if I'm wrong, doesn't he still have precedence over her. Or is she not in effect until he dies?

I'm sad it's getting cancelled but with their ever so stupid schedule and mid breaks. Ratings will only go down, down, down. My biggest beef of the season is the mid-season finale.

The way that I understand it is Claudia's role as caretaker is still in the future at some time. Mrs F is probably very very old and the warehouse is/was sustaining her. So when Paracelsus showed up and since he is an older caretaker (timeline-wise; bronzing seems to freeze all aging), Mrs F started losing her grip on, well, everything. Without the warehouse to sustain her any more, she is just wasting away.

Actually come to think of it, it wouldn't surprise me to much if it came down to using the Philosopher's Stone on either Mrs F or Myka, but only one, hence the drama.

Claire is probably in the bronzer section, under a different name. Obviously they won't post her real name if they know Claudia has access to everything and no one wanted her to know for the first 3? 4? years now. He de-bronzed Claire, took DNA and re-bronzed her immediately lol. I hope some old friends show up for the final episodes, and I hope the Dr and Artie have a happy ending as well.

I doubt that, unless they have a vial of Claire's blood somewhere else. Because Steve was with Claudia at the bronzer, and it isn't like Artie could debronze Claire and take her DNA, and then Bronze her again, with the whole bronzer machine being broken.

Totally gutted that this is ending. I think Syfi should listen to us and keep in going. I can't wait until next year that's far to long to wait for the last series. I think you should at least do a special episode.

This episode is entirely why Claudia Donovan is my favorite character of all time. She will always be the one I will root for.

Claudia is just so ranged as a character, and Allison never ceases to amaze me of how much she has made Claudia her own. No one, in my opinion can play Claudia better than Allison.

It's why I will be sad when Warehouse 13 ends after a measly six episodes, because unless there's a spin-off, which I highly doubt, it will also be the end of Claudia Donovan, and right at this moment, while Warehouse 13 is not the only show on television I watch, from my perspective, Claudia Donovan is the only character worth watching. I'm not saying I dislike everyone else on Warehouse 13, Myka and Pete have had some really funny scenes, but man, my heart only centers around Claudia. I enjoy watching her, do these things, and her decision to stay and fight Paracelsus, just reaffirms my decision on why I love Claudia Donovan so much as a character. Because not only is she funny when it calls for it, Claudia has a moral backbone, that can't be matched.

And it's a shame that Claudia Donovan will always be a one in a million character to me, and even though I see success (for the most part) for Allison Scagliotti, I'm not sure I'll ever feel the same as I do Claudia Donovan.

I first started watching Warehouse 13, primarily because of Allison Scagliotti (it was the 2nd season when I started because I had forgotten all about it). And even though the first few episodes were fine, Warehouse 13, just would never be the same had Claudia not been included into the show.

So I sure hope Claudia kicks some ass next season against Paracelsus, because anything less, would be a disservice to her character. Maybe fair, and realistic, but a disservice none the less.

Especially since in my opinion, Claudia has developed the MOST out of everyone else.

Also I should point out, my favorite "funny" scene (at least of this season) with Claudia is when she mocks Jinks for being afraid of horses.

Claudia: I'm not laughing at you, I'm laughing with the horses *Laughs like a horse*,

Most awesome hilarious scene ever.

Funny, that face says to me "we shot this scene 3 months after wrapping which is why it's the worst greenscreen job and Claudia looks so different from the rest of the episode".

This whole episode felt like too many plotlines thrown together and underbaked to result in a set of stupid, silly cliffhangers. Some stuff went utterly nowhere as Nick and his dad drove off into the sunset, others were way overkill like Myka's surgery, and then Pete's obvious stupidity with Parishiltus just became a crushing weight.

The fact that the episode wasn't worse, that it actually moved along and crammed multiple episodes-worth of plot together without having to be played in double-speed is a small success at least. A soapy, goofy mess of a success with clumsily-put-together elements of the group running around the warehouse in a tight clump, but a non-failure none the less.

Season 4 didn't seem as much like a whiff to me as it did to you, apparently. This plotline really didn't carry its own weight evenly, I suppose giving reason to cramming it all into the end after starting off setting up its weak foundation, but overall it was ok.

Ok, here's how I see things:
A miracle will cure Myka, maybe in the form of the philosopher stone
Claudia will be head of the new WareHouse 14, as WareHouse 13 will get trashed, Paracelsus will die.
Artie will die as he sacrifices himself for Claudia
Pete will live and so will Steve.
Mrs Frederick will live but no longer have powers and Abigail will still be around.
Well, there are 6 more episodes to prove me either right or wrong :)

You should have made a list of six stuff that might happen in Season 5. Oh and btw that last one is completely right obviously Abigail will still be alive she wasn't in the Warehouse at the time and Mrs. F definetaly will still be alive I mean she was alive when they got out of the warehouse! And I believe two things are wrong. One Claudia was destined to be the Caretaker for Warehouse 13 not 14 and 2 Artie won't be able to save himself because theres and IMPENETRABLE force field around the warehouse Obviously Pete and Steve will live they ain't dead now. BTW Sry to be so rude XD

I liked the finale, but I'm puzzled by the comment that the finales are usually good? They are usually terrible on this show. Almost all of them involve a huge build up for a villain that wants to use an uber artificat for a secret plan... and turns out to be crap.

Quite the finale. Loved it in fact. That final staredown between Claudia and Parcelsus was an awesome way to end. While Parcelsus makes one hell of a bad guy (and he is a really good one) rooting for him, to me, is just wrong, especially when it involves facing Claudia. Sorry, but I hope she kicks every square inch of his ass. I mean lets face it, after killing hundreds of people, ruining an entire family history, and bronzing Claudia, Parcelsus has it coming.

There was a lot going on in this episode, from Myka's very progressive disease to learning about Claudia's sister, to Mrs. Fredericks disconnection from WH 13, it was a lot to take in, and I couldn't help but love every minute of it. I think multiple things going wrong at the same time makes for a much more interesting and suspenseful finale.

Definitely looking forward to seeing how this all ends.

It's not only Claudia that is tied to the warehouse... Pete is also more involved that we first thought he could be (his mother is a regent) so that makes 2 out of 4 (if we don't count Artie) which makes me wonder about the other 2. Maybe one of Mika's or Jink's ancestors were involved with the warehouse too, or have some destiny with it. After all they all are special, Claudia is very smart, Mika has a more than awesome memory, Pete has his gut feelings that warn him of danger and Jinks knows when people lie.
All these people are born extraordinary so that makes me wonder... who knows, maybe they were born this way for a reason...

Alright, Im gonna share my theory with you. I believe Claudia was destine to become the caretaker because either she was born the same time as Warehouse 13 ((Which probably wouldn't be possible)) or her sister has some close connection with the Warehouse on a lvl above Claudia's connection. Plus Pete only has his vibes because there like instincts but on another level Jinks ability to tell when a person is lying is kinda strange. Oh and Myka is just and impressive person everyone in the Secret Service is like her (Almost).

How can SciFi cancel the show. There is still so much they can do with it. I have to agree with photorain below. It would be awesome if they did a Warehouse 14 right after.

The episode was fast. Really fast, I wish they would have extended it to two hours so that Myka's cancer would have been fleshed out a little. But overall it was a fantastic episode and finale that sets up so much for a very small season.

I like it when Pete steps up. They really harp on his immaturity and it gets cartoonish. When he steps up he does it well, even if they still are using Tesla weapons when it was already shown that they suck against P. If he had just shot him before he became immortal they could have all gone to the B&B for some pastries. But that would be a too swift end to perhaps the best villain that they have come up with thus far. P is a great enemy. But could Mrs. Frederick do the same things that he is doing with the Warehouse? If so, why haven't they done that before, that was cool.

The ending was good, aside from Myka lying on the bed. I am really interested to see how they are going to fit the fight with P and Claudia, which is going to have to be epic and squeeze Claire in as well.

But perhaps this is going to lead to the destruction of WH13 and WH14 could be waiting in the wings. I feel with a few tweeks it could be a ratings win for SciFI. Get rid of Mrs. Frederick or at least make her just another regent that we see from time to time. Make Claudia the caretaker and make WH14 Claudia's home. A state of the art Warehouse, with Myka, Steve, Pete and Artie going after bigger and better and newer artifacts. We saw a new artifact being born. If they were to go with new artifacts that are more in Claudia's wheelhouse than Artie's we could see Artie being a fish out of water, which is always fun when that happens. I don't know, maybe I am just not wanting to give this show up.

What I loved:

"No Light, No Light" - Florence makes the best background songs ever.

Claudia has finally become the caretaker. Also she looked amazing when she walked up to Paracelsus.

What I hated:

Myka has metastases and she's dying. Un fortunately, it looks like I was right and she will die in the series final :(

What I'm not sure about:

Six episodes left and they hint / introduce another Big Bad? Does Warehouse 13 have time for Claire's storyine?

Summary:

I can't believe one of my favorite shows is ending. As for season 4 - it was fine till they revealed that Myka has ovarian cancer. I hate this plot arc.

Thanks for season 4 reviews, MaryAnn!

OMG, "No Light, No Light" was an amazing choice for the background music there. Also, so pumped about Claudia taking on her caretaker role.

I'm with you worrying about biting off too much to wrap up in just six episodes though. They've got Myka's cancer, Paracelsus, and another possible big bad with Claire. I thought that Showtime's The Big C was in a similar boat with only four episodes on their last season to wrap up a lot of stuff, and they did okay, but it DID (to me) kind of change the feel of the show and I'm not sure if that would be a positive for Warehouse 13. I would have rather they'd just been given their usual thirteen episodes. I think this season proved that twenty was far too many to handle. Thirteen was a good number.

You're welcome! Thanks for reading!

I agree, 13 episodes-season worked better for Warehouse 13.

I didn't watch The Big C - too close to RL for me.

I wish they announced Warehouse 13 spin-off called Warehouse 14 with Claudia, Myka and Pete. However, I know it won't happen and it makes me very sad :(

Yeah Myka's story was blah at best,that's why I never really took any real interest in cancer.Came out of nowhere and just doesn't have that effect on me.
Soooo,so so glad Paracelsus is still alive and I hope he makes it through all 6 episodes somehow and not be killed in first episode of season 5. Pleaseee,don't kill him!!! Don't get me wrong,I am team Claudia all they way!!!!...but I also love Anthony,so I understand your dilemma MaryAnn. Kill Pete and Myka,save Claudia,Artie and Paracelsus!
Did you see Claudia's acting out,how they will take Paracelsus out. I LOVED IT!!!!
Great finale and I think somehow with only 6 episodes,they can make it. Plenty of time to explain,if they focus on really important stuff. I hope and pray they deal with Myka in first five minutes of next season and not drag it out. Either she is ok or not. Got semi-tired of these last scenes between Myka and Pete...booring! :D

Important stuff for season 5:
Like,where did Artie get Claire's blood? Has to be somewhere really near,right? Since Claudia didn't have much time,etc.
Will Claudia run Warehouse 13 or Warehouse 14,if it comes to it? I kinda wish,since show will end,that Warehouse 13 gets destroyed as well and Claudia runs Warehouse 14. Sadly(but not really) Pete and Myka would die,Artie would become regent or immortal and play chess with Paracelsus:D I WANNA KNOW WHAT PARACELSUS'S PLAN IS!!!! So don't just go and kill him! Tell us his plan first. I don't care,if he kills couple of thousand people. There's too much of us anyway...7,163,968,991 !!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Artie got Claire's DNA super-fast. My first thought was that she was bronzed or something, but that doesn't really make sense and you'd think Claudia would have found her or something by now. Maybe he had it stored somewhere? But whyyyyy?

Only...maybe best to say logical thing I can think of is,that Claire is "trapped" in another dimension,something similar to Josh's situation in first season(but he way dying in there,right?). Or she was sent there...and how is she really evil I wonder:D Weren't they kids,when that accident happened? My best guess is,that she killed their parents and maybe wanted to kill Claudia,knowing that Claudia is destined to become Warehouse Caretaker. Don't ask me how she would know Claudia's destiny:D
Artie had to have some emergency transfusions bags,because stating that Claire is evil,one would think she ain't walking around freely:D

Unless they are identical twins, then claudia would have seen her. My guess is that she is bronzed, and since claudia hadn't seen her since she was a child, then there's no way she would recognize her. Also, why wouldn't they have blood bags in the warehouse for emergency transfusions. So many deadly artifacts...

This finale resolved nothing. Big Bad, not dealt with. Claudia, not in control of the Warehouse. Myka, mostly dead. New mystery about Claudia's sister opened up. I don't think they understand how finales work. You resolve things. You want a cliffhanger, you pick one of the things. You don't turn every single open storyline into a cliffhanger and then add one. Since there's only 6 episodes left and the storylines all started half a season ago or less I'm just gonna pretend this is the mid-season hiatus.

Going with the mid-season feel/theory, the packaging on my screener actually called it the "Season 4.5 Finale" sooo....apparently WH13 doesn't know how seasons work either.

It was actually seven months between episodes. I thought they forgot about it--they could have all had babies for all we know.

Agreed; I was a bit, what? Wait a minute, people you only have *six*, count them six, more episodes to tie all this up. I seriously doubt they will be able to do it and so we're going to be left with a "I wonder what all that was about Claudia's twin sister". I'm guessing twin because I doubt the writers are finished with new storylines yet; so I'm guessing evil twin, who shuts good claud in an artifact and then takes over....for a while until someone discovers the truth who then frees good Claud so she can reverse the tables on her evil twin.

Or indeed the other storylines I doubt they'll conclude; Leena's ghost, Myka's cancer, Pete's lack of maturity in any situation, what of Steves' zombification (kind of) now Claud's stuck in W13 all the time; is HG *really* dead this time (considering Jaime Pressley's getting her kit off and having sweet lady love over on Defiance?) or merely just hiding somewhere to miraculously save the day and everyone else at the very end? Which would be kind of cool actually.

Won't work. Jenks knows when you're lying--except when he doesn't.

Oh they can short circuit him, make evil Claud stick him with an artifact that means he can't tell anymore. They could even stick him with one that meant he thought lies was the truth and the truth was lies.

They could have the final episode where he's about to be shot or killed in some way because he's natural ability is trying to over-ride the artifact and it's driving him bonkers, and evil Claud is evil laughing and so Pete thinks he has to kill Jenks (which he can't because of the whole zombie thing with Claudia)....but then good Claud suddenly rushes in saves him (and the day).......*again*. She removes the artifact, curses her evil twin into some other handy artifact and everything's sunshine, lollipops and rainbows by the very final closing credit. Either that or they're just standing in a pile of rubble where 'her' warehouse used to be.

After ep. 18 and ep. 19 really ratcheting things up for W-13, in a way I thought this finale was slightly anti-climatic. I guess I mean the "kaboom pow" of it all but it more came through info like Claudia's sis Claire and that whole new issue. No doubt Paracelsus will be involved to cure Myka but at what cost? I can't see Season 5 dropping really big shockers now since we know Claudia will finally be in charge and Claire will now be involved. In the end, the show is a cousin of Eureka honestly and I'm sure there'll be smiles, hugs and kisses in the end which should be.

I'd still hope with just six eps. that they can squeeze in Jaime Murray again. And with this ghost Leena thing, why didn't they just keep her alive and have her away like HG? Now the hardest part is to wait forever but once those six eps. are over it'll be sad to see shows like Eureka and Warehouse 13 completely gone. There just has to be another show in the vein of these to come around another day.

The ending was pretty kick butt. I really hope we see Joshua and get more on Artie&Donovan connections. Not too keen on the sister angle but I like the Donovan family connection angle. We need Josh back for that. The best part of season four for me was the family relationships of Steve/Claudia/Artie/Pete/Myka/Mrs. Fredrick. Forget romance, Family is the best ship with this show. Especially Steve&Claudia and Claudia&Artie.

I really like Pete and Myka. They love each other like adult siblings. I hope they do not go "there" with these two.

Yes, pleeeeease explain what the deal is with Ghost Leena. I've believed from the moment she "died" that she wasn't really dead.
I looooove the twins theory! I hope it's true. One good twin, one bad twin.

Season 4 was boring and silly (not in a nice way) as hell. Only liked last 3 eps and basically because of James Marsters & Anthony Stewart Head together... and ok maybe the ep with Jaime Murray wasn't that bad...

I really would call this Season 5 since what started with Season 4 was all the brotherhood / Artie finally getting stabbed was really great. But this last half overall wasn't as good. I'd say the first ep. along with these last three were top rate. Some interesting things maybe but this back half wasn't as up to par.

"Look at that face." That's enough for me to keep coming back. This is a fabulous bunch of faces to say the least. Hope I see one or two of them at Comic-Con next week...

Saturday, 5pm to 6pm, Indigo Ballroom at the Hilton Bayfront south of the convention center will net you the starring cast on the dais. Naturally they counter-programmed it with Arrow in Ballroom 20 and the Adult Swim B-team panels in the 400-seater, 25ABC, because all TV should steal from other TV panels, apparently. As I saw W13's panel last year, I may end up doing one of the others.

If this goes as the previous ones do, expect to see the cast group signing in a booth earlier in the day. Last year I was trudging along and looked up to see myself face-to-face with said W13 cast as they were doing a signing line in the exhibit hall.
