Even with the clock ticking on a looming medical apocalypse, a worldwide pandemic of fatal "English Sweating Sickness" initiated by the unleashing of a magical Black Orchid thingamabob, Syfy's quirky fan fave Warehouse 13 manages to find time to crack wise about the end of the world.
"It's always 'ultimately death,'" Agent Pete (Eddie McClintock) bemoans when clued in about just how nasty the disease is that has infected the entire team and much of the rest of the planet. "Artifacts never release a plague of tickles or an epidemic of kittens." A plague of tickles: not a bad way to describe this tongue-in-cheek supernatural lark which pulls out all the guest-star stops in an eventful episode (Monday, 10/9c) by Drew Z. Greenberg that kicks off the second half of Season 4 with Evil Artie's (Saul Rubinek) life and soul also in jeopardy. read more
"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. While that arc sparks the action-adventure fun W13 is known for, the hour also takes a more serious turn as the team continues to deal with the fact that a possessed Artie (Saul Rubinek) has killed one of their own. "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
