H.G. Wells is working as a forensic scientist for the police in Wisconsin. While there, a person who was suspected of committing a crime but wasn't charged because of lack of evidence, comes running into the police station saying he did the crime he's accused of. His lawyer says he was coerced into confessing. H.G. while examining him sees something that makes her think that an artifact is involved with what happened to him. So she calls Myka who along with Pete go and are surprised to see that she's not the person she was; that she's now living with a man and his daughter. And when an earthquake hits the Warehouse, Artie, Claudia, Jenks and Abigail try to find out what's causing it. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Did You Know?


H.G. tells Pete and Myka that she learned everything she needed to know to fake a profession as a forensic scientist from watching television. Pete jokes that he hopes she didn't study Dexter (2006) while holding a knife - an apparent reference to the fact that Dexter is a serial killer. Jaime Murray, who plays H.G., played Lila Tournay, the love interest of Dexter Morgan in Dexter's 2nd season. See more »

Getting it Right
11 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Reviewing the series (separate review) I criticized its tendency to get Soap-Opera-y over the past few seasons and I especially criticized the character of Pete, who would make me cringe every time he screamed LOOK AT ME! At the same time I said I liked Warehouse 13's premise and especially the character of Claudia, with H.G. Wells a close second and the rest of the ensemble a close third.

Instinct is what I was talking about - Pete spends the entire episode without once a whine, an I I, a Me Me, a Mine Mine. Not a single LOOK AT ME! or even a trace of self-absorbent narcissism. Wow! And the episode completed two stories, Claudia's tussle with the Warehouse and the latest rogue artifact, both within a single episode and without a hint of histrionics or Soap-Opera-y melodrama.

True, Claudia's tussle was a subtext spanning several episodes but subtext is not Soap Opera - subtext can be used as a link or a recurring theme, like Gormagon in Bones, that does not interfere with the resolution of its episode's puzzle or, if it is central to that puzzle, is resolved to a degree consistent with the puzzle.

Confused? So am I but what I mean is that a theme can be reoccurring without being Soap-Opera-y.

Like Claudia's mysterious tussle with the Warehouse, which turned out to be a kind of flirting, very pleasantly resolved by Claudia's admission that she wants to be the Caretaker and the Warehouse's acquiescence to same - very much like a mutual seduction.

The rogue artifact was pretty good, too. Good story well written and well-acted. Hell, Pete was not only non-offensive, he actually contributed to the story.

So, when I said, 'I like Warehouse 13' in my series review, Instinct is what I was hoping for.

As a bonus, H.G. Wells is back! I though they'd killed her off. OOPs, that was the serial with the wheel-chair guy and guess I missed her resurrection.
