Pete has turned into a class clown. I don't enjoy his forced "lets have babies" thing with Myka.

The whole cancer thing was just blah...

Everything has just gone hoj-poj it seems...

Claudia's back story is about all I have enjoyed with this last batch.

It's just not as fun as it was when it started out.

I looked forward to each episode at the beginning, now I don't really care how they wrap things up.

Good ep tonight, albeit bitter sweet for Claudia & her sister, not to mention Artie and his "girls".

Nice to see "the boys" get out once in a while to snag and bag.

Loved Pete getting "stuck" with the Princess in the end.

Next week looks like fun.

Seems like a waste. They should be legally allowed to use those characters, if they can tempt the actors to one last hurrah.

Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

I liked both stories, but they each deserved their own episodes. It was all very rushed, and the transitions distractingly abrupt. I was surprised that Claudia's sister had to go back into her coma; I was so sure she would become a part of the team (which could still happen, I suppose). I think, like with Myka being sick, that the plotline would have lasted longer had they been given a full or longer season.

Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

It's hard to compress an entire season into six episodes without ending storylines abrubtly. This happened last year with Nikita's final season. It had six episodes and there was stuff there that if it had been a full season would've gone on linger. Six episodes doesn't give much time to develop things. I really wish W13 had gotten a full season for it's final one.

Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

Didn't Eureka's last season feel that way too?

This episode felt like a regular season episode rather than a series-ending episode. it was still fun (and liked mixing the characters)...but only 3 more left (and next week's, again, looks like a "regular" episode).

I did like the thought put out there that Pete will NOT hook up with Myka, but rather help her find the right man for her. Hopefully the finally will have a little coda for 5 years later, where both Pete & Myka are married to other people, and Pete is "Uncle Pete" to Myka's toddler.

Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

The thing that confused me is that they seemed to set up Benedict Valda as the big bad for this final run; but we haven't even seen a hint of him for two episodes. Is he just going to pop at the end with no build up? Looks like it.

I actually totally forgot about Valda.
As for this week's episode, I enjoyed it. I really enjoyed both stories, although I was really hoping Claudia's sister would stick around permanently. I'm hoping we do get more from that storyline before the end of the series. I did get a kick out of seeing the two Alpha's cast member's back together on Syfy.
I do agree with Morpheus 02, that this hasn't really felt like the ending of the show. I was honestly expecting a big epic final arc that would tie everything up.

That was due it was cancelled really close to the end of the filming for season 5, their final season. Only so much you can do when the notification is that late in the process.

Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

^^ Yeah, they really only had one episode to tie things up.

I forgot about Valda, too. He's not going to have much time to do anything big or bad. But there's also the possibility that he will learn about what he was like in this timeline and find himself drawn to the light side of the Force.

I actually hope they don't do a coda. That would limit the possibilities for reunion movies.

Well, she "is" going to be around "permanently", just not in a speaking role.

Since we have so little time left to season 5, I think having a "15 year old" (emotionally) dealing with the murder of her parents and a "30 year old body" would have sucked too much storytelling time away from the other characters.

Also, as smart as Claudia is, it would diminish the effort Artie had put into his research over the last 15 years to save the sister if Claudia "figured it out" the first time she tried.

Its nice to know that Claudia and Artie will now be working together on his project to restore Monica.

Who knows, maybe after all the years of artifact "research" in Paracelsus's timeline, the mysterious Benedict Valda could be the one to give them the answer.

That's a very good point.

Also a very good idea. Or maybe he'll end up with the artifact's power and be placed into a coma. Come to think of it, I wonder why Claudia's sister was put into a coma rather than bronzed.

Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

The Brozed are awake.

Leaving her alone with her madness and grief would have been mean.

Couldn't they take big sis back in time, purple goo the music box, and then take her back tot he future?

Nullification and destruction seem to be quite different.

Nullification by goo must release a "signal" that tells everyone effected to calm the shit down that destruction doesn't.
