    Basically after finding out that his mom is a regent, Pete is still pretty mad but agrees to go into his mothers memories to see if they can get any more information on the people whom are trying to destroy them.

    Great interplay between Pete and his mom (Kate Mulgrew aka Kathryn Janeway) who is a fabulous actress. Growing up watching StarTrek Voyager I squealed when I saw her on here. It was great to see just how far back they went and to find out that Jane was a warehouse agent as well. Although Ms.Fredrick never seems to change.

    Myka and Claudia had a good storyline as well going after an artifact that made a young girl believe she was disintergrating people.

    All in all a great episode from Warehouse 13.moreless

    8.5
    I gave this episode an 8.5 rating. I particularly enjoyed the Myka/Claudia mission to search for the artifact responsible for disintegrating people. The way the plot line proceeded about the young woman who thought she was causing people that were giving her trouble to be vaporized was very well done. The actress portraying that woman did a great job and the ultimate cause was nicely plotted as well as another very cool artifact.

    I wasn't quite as enamored of the Pete and his mom "dream" plot but it was still quite good. I have to admit I have a bit of trouble with these "dream" sequences but it did end up being critical to Pete's relationship with his mom, his dad, and the overreaching arc of the Warehouse itself. It also ended up providing us with the motives and actions of the, until this episode, mystery man plotting against the Regents. I must admit that development has clarified what is going on and will provide more stories for future episodes. The bad thing is the season is rapidly coming to an end.moreless

    Shadows was a superb episode of Warehouse 13 and I really enjoyed watching this episode because it had a lot of character development for Pete and his Reagent mother, Jane, who was played by one of my favorite actresses. I enjoyed the back story and it was a great way for Pete to have the truth explained to him as best as it could be. It was interesting how far back every thing went, including Ms. Frederick who looked the same in each time. Myka and Claudia had an interesting story line as well, and it was not as predictable or apparent at first what was really happening. I was very entertained and I look forward to watching the next episode of Warehouse 13!!!!!!!moreless

    • Artie: Silence! This is not snag, bag, and nag.

    • Artie: There have to be other ways. Less risky ways.
      Mrs. Frederic: Travel back in your memories and watch them? Oh, yes, hundreds.
      Artie: You're joking, right?
      Mrs. Frederic: I'm very dry.

    • Claudia: So I guess the landlady didn't see anything, but she definitely heard Brandon out here caterwauling the other day.
      Myka: "Caterwauling"?
      Claudia: Yeah, her word, not mine. I like the way it rolls off the tongue, though.

    • Pete: Wow. Not just a regent, but a super regent. Man, if I had known, I'd have gotten you a mug that said, "World's Greatest Secret Overlord."

    • Claudia: I'm telling you, we're a lot alike.
      Megan: You make people vaporize with your mind, do you?
      Claudia: I definitely have the "make people disappear" curse. I recently lost a... a really good friend. He didn't, like, die or anything, but he's just gone.
      Megan: Not exactly the same.
      Claudia: I have a boyfriend in the Witness Protection program.
      Megan: Impressive. But still...
      Claudia: My brother disappeared into an inter-dimensional bubble.
      Megan: What?
      Claudia: It took me 12 years to get him back.
      Megan: Fine. You're cursed too, congratulations.
      Claudia: Thank you. Maybe we should start a support group.Called the Arms Length Club.
      Megan: I don't think so. The Ten-Foot Pole Society.
      Claudia: Nice. Better.

    • Myka: Claude, did you find Megan?
      Claudia: Safe and sound. We're bonding over our ability to repel people.

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Brandon's Roommate: He was gonna turn her on to Eraserhead.


      Referencing the 1977 movie by David Lynch, his first theatrical project, which features a vacationing printer named Henry who is thrust into increasingly surrealistic situations.

    • Claudia: What do you wanna bet we find her dead mother in a rocking chair up there?


      Referencing the 1960 movie Psycho, which initially chronicles the exploits of a secretary embezzling money from her employer. She hides at an isolated motel owned by Norman Bates, who likes to stuff animals. He claims to have a mother who lives in the house at the top of the hill, but it is eventually revealed that she is a figment of Norman's delusional mind, and he dresses up like her to kill anyone who offends "Mother."

    • Claudia: Fine, but if her hair starts blowing around like Firestarter, we're out of here.


      Referencing the 1980 novel by Stephen King, which features a young girl, Charlie McGee, who has the ability to generate fires with her minds after her parents are experimented on by the U.S government. It was adapted into a movie in 1984 and spawned a sequel in 2002.
