    • Good to be back!

      Loved the long awaited return of WH13! Looking forward to the rest of the season and what's to come. Liking the introduction of a couple of new characters with their own possible agenda. Love it! :)
    • The Living and the Dead

      The Living and the Dead was anintriguing return of Warehouse 13. I really enjoyed watching as Pete and Myka race to find a cure to the Black Orchids deadly pandemic. It was great to see Reagent Jane again. Ms. Frederick wss awesome as well. It was great seeing Claudia and Steve inside Artie's mind. I liked how things played out and look forward to the next episode!!!!!!!!!

    • A good return for the second half

      I did enjoy this episode even though I am never too fond of dream plots. But that was only about half the episode and the dream part entering Artie's mind to bring him out of his denial of Leena's death was well done even if a dream scenario. I did enjoy the artifacts in this one and the story line to get the ring back. Marstens was quite good in his role and I can see a branching story line with him and Charlotte. Myka and Pete's parts were very good but I think they ought to make Pete look a bit less dense, he isn't really after all but seems to be the brunt of jokes each week. A bit would be fine but sometimes they write too many for him. I just read online that Eddie McClintock is hoping for a renewal for next season but it hasn't been decided yet. I hope they renew it as it is one of the shows I look forward to each week.moreless

    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (9)

      • Myka: Before what? What--what happens?
        Mrs. Frederic: Chills, rapid pulse. Intense thirst, heart pain. Ultimately death.
        Pete: Right. You--it's always ultimately death. I mean, artifacts never release a plague of tickles or an epidemic of kittens.
        Jane: Some do. They end badly, too.

      • Claudia: Holy metaphor. Artie's brain is...
        Steve: The warehouse. I can't say I'm surprised.
        Claudia: Figured it either had to be this or a magical land made entirely of doughnuts.

      • Claudia: Why bother if we just keep losing?
        Steve: Because it's not the win, it's the fight. Evil is relentless, it always has been. You take one evil out and another one pops up to replace it.
        Claudia: Worst pep talk ever.

      • Pete: Well, I'll bet you know who lives here, and not in a good way.
        Sutton: Don't wrinkle your forehead, you look like sheet music.
        Pete: Hey hey hey. I have a handsome forehead, okay? Just ask my mom.
        Sutton: Oh.
        Pete: And on the plane... I swiped your nuts. (realizes what he's saying) Wait...

      • Pete: Okay. Okay. So you're--you're like really really old, with a lot more reallies. Are you--what--are you like a vampire?
        Sutton: Oh, please. Vampires are for Gothic novels and apparently preadolescent girls.
        Pete: I don't know, I kinda like--I kinda like vampires.

      • Myka: So you're three hundred years old? That's amazing.
        Sutton: Five hundred and nineteen, actually. I moisturize.

      • Pete: So you were really friends with Marie Antoinette?
        Sutton: Uh, not friends per se. We were but we weren't. The woman seemed to think I was using her for her money.
        Myka: Why would she think that?
        Sutton: Probably because I was using her for her money.

      • Sutton: I always wondered if being ageless meant being immortal. Apparently a poison dart through the heart will kill me. That's good to know. Won't do that again.

      • Artie: Go away.
        Mrs. Frederic: That's the nice thing about being me. I don't take orders from you.
