    Niall Matter and Erica Cerra from Eureka are guest starring on tonight's episode. I'm just wondering if there will ever be a cross-over episode involving the town of Eureka. And do you think it would be a good or bad idea, mixing the mythologies?

    Also, just wondering if the roulette wheel seen in the trailer is an "object" or not.

    Fun episode.

    Joanne Kelly can really turn it on when she wants to. I like the way Artie and Myka are beginning to clear the air some but I have a feeling that Claudia is contemplating putting her electrified handcuffs back on him if he doesn't lighten up on her.

    I loved tonight's episode! The Studio 54 disco ball, mixed in with Lewis Carroll's mirror, and the whole Vegas spin on the whole thing. Who could've thought mixing these ingredients together could provide us with such an amazing episode?

    Lena, Artie, Claudia: Loved them all together. I liked when Artie grabbed onto Lena's jeans, and he said, "Don't let your mind go to the gutter," or somethin' like that, pretty cool, how she "felt" the mirror, I'm very interested to know the depths of Lena's abilities/powers, because what she can do seems pretty awesome to me. Claudia was quirky in this ep, but I enjoyed her input, and her inventions.

    Pete & Myka: What great chemistry! Loved her turn of character, you could really tell that it was *somebody* else using Myka's body. I'm kind of surprised that Pete didn't feel any vibes like he usually does with these things. Their kiss was great, loved how Pete was distracted with her...

    The Gamblers: Quite cool that it was a little chip that turned their luck, and the deterioration of their flesh after using it for so long. What people will go to for money, loved the guy's line about "cashing out," in the end, I think he had enough.

    Loved the purple latex gloves that they're using!

    So, in previous episodes when Pete was playing ping pong with the mirror, was it Alice's ghost he was playin' with?

    There were also some things that were said by Artie that sorta caught me off guard in this episode, I'll have to go back and re-watch it, but it really made you think about previous warehouse agents, and previous experiences, and the ins and outs of the werehouse itself. Intrigue and good mystery, makes for great television!

    I liked that Myka flat out told Artie se didn't trust him and he just looked her words were going in one ear and out the other

    as for the episode itself for me it was kinda (fillery) but I liked when Claudia was trying to get to the mirror and Artie was blocking her and the childlike was she tried to get around him

    Joanne Kelly really surprised me with her acting abilities I definitely got the feeling there was someone else controlling Myka

    Hi Amaryllis,

    I agree. I thought it was a very good episode. Who would have thought that the unintentional mixing of two separate elements could have such dire consequences?

    Pete and Myka's chemistry gets better and better. Pete was definitely aware that something was wrong, though. He evaded the issue during his video conversation with Artie, while in the casino, knowing that Myka was listening in. Artie was unaware that they were using the earpieces to communicate. Pete later made the comment that Myka would NEVER kiss him. I loved his reaction to the kiss in the hallway.

    As far as the ping pong goes, I think Pete was playing his own reflection, not Alice. I believe Alice was dormant the entire time, that is, until the negative effect from the disco mirror ball woke her.

    I think Myka's impassioned plea/accusation(?) directed to Artie, while trapped in the mirror, was the best moment of the series to-date!
    It was honest, raw, and packed an emotional punch. It definitely woke Artie up! I think he will now finally open-up more (if not totally) to Pete and Myka.

    "Kirk out."

    Still trying to see the whole episode, as wrestling strikes again and goes over. Um, Syfy? Get that crap off your station!

    Anyway, will come back and comment when I have seen it all.

    Hi! I missed posting in the other episode thread..I did see it though. I loved reading everybody's interesting theories, comments, posts, I'm glad that we can have an intellectual, yet comedic, and thought-provoking discussion. Makes for interesting reading.

    That's right, I didn't really think of the ear-pieces, I guess I plum forgot! lol I wonder what really gave it away to Pete, letting him know, that at this point, something was definitely OFF with Myka? Do you think it was before their kiss in the hallway, or would that have been the clincher of, "Yeah, this is not Myka."

    Ok, that makes sense, it was the combination of the 2 artifacts together that caused Alice to "wake up," so to speak. I loved the brainstorming that occured between Artie, Lena, & Claudia, trying to figure out how Myka got trapped in the mirror, the way in which Lena spoke, it's like we were all figuring it out too, but she was doing it in a way that flowed better with the moment.

    A very enjoyable episode with pretty good storyline. Now that some of Eureka artists ended here a combined episode might be interesting. Say an artifact landing in Eureka or something from Eureka ending up in the Warehouse.

    The thought of Artie skulking around Eureka after "The Artifact" in Section 5, while Jack, Myka, and Pete grapple with jurisdictional issues would be kind of fun.

    I could also see Mrs. Frederic communing with it in some way, or having some sort of connection to the Section 5 Artifact.

    We also learned in the Eureka episode "Try, Try Again" that Global Dynamics has its own warehouse full of weird, interesting, and dangerous items, so it wouldn't be too much of a stretch to have Claudia learn from GD's filing system and try to kick Artie into the 21st century a bit.

    Excellent! Absolutely, positively...excellent!!

    Like I said, last week: it would admittedly be a painfully slow process for Artie to break out of his hardshell. But, this week, after a much-needed heart-to-heart with Myka, he has taken a very strong first step. And, I cite as irrefutable evidence how the whole _team_ (Claudia and Lena included) worked together to bring Myka back into the real world.

    And, to think: none of this would have happened if Myka hadn't been wearing...a red shirt.

    I love the irony. Ten stars!

    OMG, I love it when someone points out something I missed. I did not even think about the fact Myka was wearing red. Like you said: I love the irony.

    I also loved the soundtrack leading up to the climax, while "Alice" was working her way through the warehouse. Having Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit" play as the backdrop to the scene was brilliant. It was one of the great songs of the psychedelic-rock period, and was perfect for that scene.

    Now this was a good episode had the fun and suspense it was perfect. The Eurka guest were good and I hope they don't try to merge the mythologies to answer an earlier post. Man Alice was creepy that was one frightful little girl and I'm so glad Myka and Artie had their emotional blow out. This was perfect the disco ball, the character issues, Las Vegas, and Lewis Carrol perfect mix real good episode.

    Loved the episode but the ending was silly, sorry.

    Alice can see the future, and she doesn't use the chip more often to see that they are trying to catch her?

    And how did our gang figure out that they even had a chance to catch someone who could see the future?!

    Sorry, the ending was a cop-out for me.

    Couldn't agree more! I loved this whole scene.

    Plus, this show is just so....so....fun!

    I was on the fence about watching more episodes of W13, but I think this episode finally tipped the scales. I really enjoyed it. I can't say what it was about the episode, but it just seemed to work for me. Personally, 'Duped' had the most serious/heartfelt moment so far, with Myka's little confession to Artie, and his reaction, and the funniest with Myka's and Pete kiss. It was quite intense, but the bit that made me laugh out loud had to be the way Pete kept leaning into the kiss as Myka pulled away. I believe he had the best reaction to an impromptu make out session ever...

    I like the way Pete and Myka's friendship is developing. I know that the 'partners at each others throats' plot device is used in pretty much EVERY TV show now days, but with them it's a little different. They may argue a lot, but it's always in a kind of playful way. Pete seems to be able to 'diffuse' Myka quite well, and she knows not to take him too seriously. What do you know, they are beginning to understand each other.

    And then there's is Artie and Myka's relationship. I loved her completely honest speech to Artie, and I'm glad they've began to tackled their whole trust issues already. I'm looking forward to seeing them work them out slowly... Speaking of Artie, that scene with Claudia, when she tries to get pass him to get to the mirror... Loved the whole childishness of it all. It looks like they're setting up a father/daughter relationship.

    And finally... The ferret. Did anybody find it extremely funny that we find out that Myka named it Pete after he claims it was him and not the ferret who peed in her shoes? I totally did.

    I concur!!!

    Hey Kalel, how are you? Was it only me or were you dying laughing when you saw the face of the electrically charred and tied to the chair gambler when Pete pretended he had been killed? He was electrically fried and in obvious pain but that facial expression was priceless... Another great episode!!!
