Before we begin, let’s provide a bit of background for those just tuning into the show.
For the uninitiated, W13 is a top secret facility in South Dakota which houses rare and dangerous artifacts, such as Lewis Carroll‘s looking glass, Robin Hood‘s crossbow, and James Franco‘s brownie recipe.
Secret Service Agents Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly) and Pete Lattimer (Eddie) are assigned to retrieve the supernatural items, with help from Warehouse director Mrs. Frederic (CCH Pounder), agent-in-charge Artie (Saul Rubinek), and hot flame-haired tech geek Claudia (Allison Scagliotti).
This season also sees the debut of new agent Steve Jinks (Aaron Ashmore), who has the ability to tell when someone is lying, and is the first recurring gay character on Syfy since Caprica‘s Sam Adama.
This week’s episode of Warehouse 13 introduces us to Pete‘s ex-wife. Resistance is futile.
Okay, I apologize for that.
Oh, and we get backstory about Steve which is poignant and touching … and vaguely troubling.
Now let’s follow the action … in picture form, because there’s no better way to appreciate the goofy awesomeness than with snarky captions!
“I am so sick of that recapper saying I look like Elton John in these glasses”
“Pete, your ex-wife is here”
“”The Bitch is Back”
“Hey, It’s me, Myka. I’m back from my mission, raiding tacky gift stores around the world looking for cursed tchotchkes. I got this one at Bed, Bath & Bee-Yond”
“There’s no need to feel threatened by me, Myka, my silver catsuit and space pumps are in storage.”
Okay, I’ll say it. You just know that Little Pete is squeeing a little.
