Meanwhile, Artie uses an artifact to take Claudia back into his memories of an old case, to show her the truth about her sister.
Pete and Steve immerse themselves in a Renaissance Faire as they search for a dangerous artifact which animated both a horseless chariot and a life-size chess piece and set them against the faire patrons. Meanwhile, Claudia risks combining artifacts in a desperate attempt to revive her sister Claire from her artifact-induced coma; Myka struggle to prevent Artie from finding out and stopping her.
Pete, Myka, and Artie help Kelly Hernandez (Pete's ex-girlfriend) save her grandmother who is trapped inside a Telenovela, and in the process "fall in" and become characters of this Latino Soap Opera themselves.
