    Warehouse 13 "Instinct" Review: H.G. in Love

    I'm always a fan of episodes that explore the inner-workings of the warehouse after which Warehouse 13 is named, even if I didn't particularly care for this week's H.G. wells storyline.

  • Episode Summary


    H.G. calls the agents when she needs help with an artifact. Meanwhile, a series of mysterious quakes shake the warehouse.

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (4)

      • Pete: I'm really hoping it wasn't from Dexter.
        Referencing the psychopath Dexter Morgan, created by author Jeff Lindsay and featured in several  novels and a TV series starring Michael C. Hall. Dexter is a bloodstain pattern analyst by day, and a serial killer who only stalks and kills murderers by night.

      • Pete: Like dangerous, Jekyll and Hyde?
        Referencing the novella, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, written in 1886 by Robert Louis Stevenson. In this novella, researcher, Dr. Jekyll, creates a serum that inadvertently unleashes the bestial side of the human personality by creating a second personality. Dr. Jekyll's second personality goes by the name, "Mr. Hyde." The novella has since inspired dozens of book, movie, and TV adaptations and parodies.

      • Pete: The showerhead from Psycho.
        Referencing Marion Crane's shower murder in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (1960). In it, Marion takes a shower and the killer enters and stabs her victim repeatedly with an overhand strike while shrill music plays repeatedly in the background.

      • Claudia: I'm gonna need a Silkwood shower.
        Referencing the 1983 movie based on the life of Karen Silkwood, who died while investigating report of wrongdoing at a nuclear plant. A scene in the movie features being scrubbed down in an anti-contamination shower for suspected exposure to nuclear materials. The term "Silkwood shower" has since entered usage as any long drawn-out shower designed to remove accumulated filth and contamination.
