Good to know the goo is non-toxic.

Hmm. Way back in the first ep, didn't they say that consuming the goo was a no-no, that it caused nightmarish dreams and hallucinations or something?

Maybe the goo canceling the artifact as quickly as it did disapated any nasty side effects.

The Wiki page confirms that ingesting the goo causes you to see things, but doesn't say anything about it being injected. Also, the neutralization effect may be mutual. Or maybe the guy went home and dreamed of bunnies with butterfly wings.

Re: Warehouse 13 Season 4 (discussion, spoilers)

So who thinks the temptation for H.G. to use the astrolabe to change her daughter's death will be too great? She did dedicate her life to this very purpose for a long time.

I was under the impression that the astrolabe only let you go back one day, hence why they couldn't save Jinx.

That's correct. You can only go back 24 hours.

Re: Warehouse 13 Season 4 (discussion, spoilers)

I suppose that, conceivably, H. G. could use her time machine to go back to the day her daughter died, and then use the astrolabe to undo the day . . . .

Re: Warehouse 13 Season 4 (discussion, spoilers)

I think the Time Machine only transports consciousness, doesn't it? She wouldn't be able to take the astrolabe.

But if she could find out where the astrolabe was in the 1890s, maybe....

Implant her consciousness into a Brotherhood member of that era and undo the day. But I think she's reformed now, flip-flopping between good and evil too many times gets boring.

Re: Warehouse 13 Season 4 (discussion, spoilers)

These petty astrolabe rules are for the small minded. H.G. will find away around it.

And if this does happen I predict that it is what Mrs. Frederic wanted to happen. That's why she gave H.G. the astrolabe in the first place, setting in motion events needed to occur to undo the evil whatsamathingy that Artie brought into the world. Thus, her crafty little smile.

I wonder what would happen if the astrolabe were destroyed...

Pretty much anything they wanted to happen would happen, LOL

Re: Warehouse 13 Season 4 (discussion, spoilers)

But wasn't the astrolabe a MacPherson back-up plan? I had assumed that H.G. has always known about its existence through that link; but she also knew it was of no use to her due to its limitation. Of course, who's to say H.G. didn't already use it the distant past? What happens if H.G. were to undo her one day? The next season of Warehouse 13 may see a big shake-up on the status quo.

As for the overall arc, I would join in the speculation that Artie himself is the great evil that will be with him for the rest of his days. Each artifact downside usually has a correlation to the origin of the artifact. In the case of the astrolabe, the upside is that you step back across the line into the day before; the downside could relate to the reason you could do that. In effect, we live in a world where two days always exist at the same time; some might even say that makes the world bi-polar.

The Artie is evil theory was pretty much shot down, Mrs Frederic can tell when something's wrong with people/time (oh my god she's El Aurian) so she wouldn't have left evil Artie to do whatever he wanted.
