Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

I thought that because of the cancellation, not that it was a surprise, but because they still had so many A plots knocking about, that it's been A/A all the way this year.

Pete is on Castle tonight.

His hair looks real and fine.

Loved Steve's reaction to Pete all episode long, especially at the end.

Claudia wins!

Myka is clueless.

Just one ep left.

Mrs. Frederick is powerless over something???

Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

Despite the events of the last episode, it looks like they really are moving the Warehouse to China. It's an interesting commentary on our times. The Warehouse seems to have been traditionally placed in a powerful country of the time (usually the most powerful). Following reality, that power is less and less in the hands of the USA and more in China.

I couldn't help watching this as Crowley trying to recover demonic artifacts for his evil plans. Curse you, Mark Sheppard and your ubiquity.

Warehouse 13 was not placed in America because of any military power, it was placed there to hide it because of the world wars and humanity becoming more likely to find it.

1-12 were placed in "empires", which aren't really around anymore, just nations. Warehouse 13 just needed to vanish, kings and power stop mattering.

Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

China wouldn't seem to be a very convenient location, in terms of agents traveling from there to where they need to be. I hope the Warehouse doesn't move there, if it moves at all.

This was another episode that felt very rushed, as if they intended the Mirror Valda storyline to play out over more episodes before they found out they had only six. But at least Clare is okay, and perhaps will be part of the team when the show ends, as I hoped.

Looks like they're waiting till the last second to resolve the Pete and Myka thing.

One more episode. I will miss this show.

You're saying Beijing is LESS convenient than in the middle of nowhere USA?

South Dakota is the middle of nowhere compared to the empty western half of China Warehouse 14 would be?

The idea since 1914 has been to hide it as far away from everyday sight as possible while still allowing the operatives of the warehouse to function. There are a lot of remote areas in China that aren't frequented often, but within a couple of hours travel of cities.

Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

Besides, based on recent episodes, there's obviously some teleport device in use by our favorite agents. They just get around too fast. In some cases they even bring a Prius along.

All they needed to do was transfer the TK power into someone who's already comatose and will be dead within the hour.

Mrs. Silvercrest has been replaying the DVD sets so I've done a little catching up. The bronzing process involves cryogenically freezing someone, but they're somehow awake afterward???

And is why on Earth are the bronzer, and the bronzed people, kept in the Warehouse itself? The Warehouse organization should be storing them far, far, from anywhere.

For the writers, keeping the bronzer in the Warehouse makes it easy to introduce peril. In-universe it makes no sense at all (for that exact reason).

It's been clearly stated that the Warehouse is always moved to whatever empire or power seems to be leading the world at the time, including Warehouse 13. I'm not sure where you're coming up with the war bit, or that the United States was chosen simply as a means of evading the World War (especially since the US was involved in it). Doubly so when you consider that the first Warehouse 13 was built around 1898 before it burned down, as mentioned by Artie when he was talking about Mrs. Frederic becoming the caretaker.

When did they suggest that it would be in the empty half of China?

It was being transported to Beijing in the episode. And we don't know where it's moving to right now...

So, 13 is an abnormality. Who is to say that the trend would continue?

It'd be interesting to seem Chinese artifacts being tamed by some Chinese agents. How does that work in W13, are there supposed to be other teams out there or is it just the team we see week to week?

I thought it was being transported to Beijing because that's where Valda was directing it to go. He was planning to sell artifacts to the Chinese.

I prefer to think of 13 as the start of a new trend instead of an abnormality. The first twelve warehouses were kept in their host nations' capital cities, but as technology progressed and it became harder and harder to keep something as big as the warehouses a secret right in the heart of their host's capital, it was decided that the next warehouse would be located in the middle of nowhere, where there would be fewer prying eyes. If Warehouse 14 does end up going to China after all, I think it's more likely they'd put it in one of their more sparsely populated regions, perhaps Qinghai province or the Xinjiang autonomous region.
