So last season on WAREHOUSE 13 things ended with a big bang, literally. Walter Sykes (Anthony Michael Hall) got his chance to walk again and then blew up the Warehouse with pretty much most of our main cast inside. Pete (Eddie McClintock), Artie (Saul Rubinek), and Myka (Joanne Kelly) were only spared due to the intervention and self sacrifice of H.G. (Jaime Murray).
Mrs. Frederic (CCH Pounder) turned into a withered husk and disappeared, and oh yeah new Warehouse recruit Steve Jinks (Aaron Ashmore) was also on the list of the deceased. Whew! That’s a lot of dead people and the destruction of our main set and location for the series.
So starting back up literally where we left off is “A New Hope”, where hope is pinned on the watch Artie was holding when the Warehouse went kerblewie. It’s a failsafe device, but the gang only has a set amount of time to figure out what it does and what it is leading them to, in order to correct the past 24 hours.
This merry chase introduces yet another STAR TREK alum to the cast Brent Spiner as Brother Adrian, part of a mysterious brotherhood that have artifacts of their own that they are protecting. It’s a bit shocking to see Spiner all these years later since the last STAR TREK THE NEXT GENERATION movie. Not too be mean, but he will never be Mister Data again…unless he has some plastic surgery or they CGI the face. Spiner doesn’t look bad at all, but as people age they develop wrinkles and let’s face it kids androids don’t age.
The crew pause for a brief discussion with Claudia (Allison Scagliotti) about going back and saving Jinks, but she agrees that this is more important in the now, and she will return to save him once this mission is done. Small problem. If the mission works, this conversation will never have taken place, and Claudia will still have a mad on about Jinks meeting his untimely demise … this is going to be a MAJOR plot point for the rest of the season.
Artie is warned by Brother Adrian that if he uses an astrolabe artifact to turn back the clock and save the Warehouse, he will unleash an evil of his own making. I like the fact that time travel and meddling with past events has consequences. Too often science fiction series and movies have people changing the past with little or no ramifications on the future or present.
Needless to say that through the course of the episode not only does the Warehouse have to be put to rights, but there are a LOT more people in need of having the 24 hour period erased.
There are some ominous warnings about future events for Artie by the end of the Season 4 premiere of WAREHOUSE 13, and Mrs. Frederic is acting creepier than usual. Perhaps there’s more than one thing that has been affected by turning back time?! We’ll see ….
