Warehouse 13 2.02 – Mild-Mannered

Superhero time for our intrepid artifact hunters. While Helena Wells stew away in places unknown and unseen our storehouse workers face Iron Man, the super hero and a ghost.

Warehouse 13 is so super geeky this episode lots of comics jargon and references. It’s fine the way they play off Pete’s over-enthusiasm with Myka’s ignorance and lack of understanding. Bickering and goofing around is such a big part of what makes w13 work.

Location wise it is quite charming the way Peter tries to charm everyone they meet in the small town where they live now. Myka gets her personal stuff from Washington and we learn she has a middle name that begins with O. Peter tries to guess what it is the whole episode, cute. (it is [Ofelia]).

The aftermath of McPherson’s incursion lingers. Claudia has a hard time forgiving Leena. Artie is seeing McPherson’s ghost and that leads to an entertaining cleaning session with Artie, Leena and Claudia.

Myka and Pete are sent off to Detroit where a masked vigilante is fighting crime. You should see how excited Peter becomes and how befuddled Myka is of that. We understand pretty quick who the masked avenger is but it takes the team a little longer. There is a love story at the bottom of it all, which never gets old. The artifact is somehow affecting the user’s density and strength but in an unstable manner that eventually gets out of hand.

Myka gets to dress up in an awesome outfit worthy any superhero to drain the artifact.

It ends on a sweet note when Myka and friends goes a little extra to make Pete feel at home even though his stuff hasn’t arrived yet.

Great episode, fun lighthearted genre entertainment.
