"Just when you think the writers can't raise the stakes, they threaten to destroy the entire world!" says Eddie McClintock with a laugh. He's talking about Syfy hit Warehouse 13's midseason premiere (Monday, 10/9c), which picks up with his artifact-hunting agent Pete and bestie-slash-partner Myka (Joanne Kelly) in a mad dash to find a cure for the sweating-sickness epidemic unleashed in October's cliffhanger.
Helping their cause is Buffy the Vampire Slayer veteran James Marsters, who guest stars as a professor with a specific — and very old — skill set that may help stop the global pandemic.

"We have to honor the demise of Leena [Genelle Williams]," McClintock says, while promising that Season 4.5 won't be all death and destruction. "It's still Warehouse 13. We're gonna paint with all the same colors and just add a couple of different tones."read more
