"Tesla grenade. Don't leave home without it."  
Warehouse 13 2.08 "The 40th Floor"

There have been two dramatic episodes in a row, both of them really awesome. If this keeps up I think this might be my favorite season yet.

The plot is thickening with the seasonal arc mystery, and it is definitely very intense. Someone is trying to get inside the Warehouse for whatever purpose, learn its secrets and destroy the Regents. We don't know for why and for what, but this is leading us to know more about those higher ups that Warehouse agents respond to. I knew it was about time to learn more about them. Plus, it adds more complexity to how these people are connected. Not just with the cliffhanger but the concept of destiny, how they all have a purpose and are chosen for something. I mean, thinking about it, it makes sense. They are all there because of a connection to an artifact or something of that world. Claudia because of her brother's experiment, Myka because of her partner who was killed due to an artifact, and now we learn about Pete and the reveal that his own mother is a Warehouse Regent herself. It's all connected. I think this season is getting to, or at least setting up, for something much bigger than that, and whatever the Regents do.

Also, this makes me wonder if this is going to continue the arc involving Claudia and her supposed destiny about becoming the caretaker of Warehouse 13.

This leads me to something else this episode did: Mrs. Fredrick fired Jinks from being an agent.

This fills me with a lot of emotions, because I love Jinksy. He just became part of the team and then he got fired, all because he showed morality in a situation which he felt wasn't right. Even though yes, it was under dire circumstances and Mrs. Fredrick saw no other choice but to use drastic measures, but you can't really blame him for using those instincts. He protects people, he doesn't want to torture them even if they are bad. How is that wrong? This brings up questions about Mrs. Fredrick and the other Regents who would do absolutely anything in their power to protect the Warehouse, and whether the FBI agent was right about how not so saintly the people running the Warehouse operation really are.

Unless this is some kind of ploy on Mrs. Fredrick's end. Because Warehouse agents don't usually get fired, do they? Now pulling a gun on Mrs. Fredrick might have something to do with such a decision, but somehow I can't help but think about how there might be something else behind this.

Who is this new big bad? Why can't we see his face? Perhaps it's because we already know who it is.

Already there are speculations that it's actually Jinks, perhaps from the future via artifact, who is trying to uncover the mysteries of the Warehouse because of what happened. I mean, think about it, how else would this mysterious man know about Jinks and what he would do? How he would react to the situation? Mrs. Fredrick firing him would lead him to question things, investigate more, hence why this was all done in the first place. This could be reaching here, but what if Jinks joins the other side because of his suspicions and what if he can't detect whoever the mysterious man is and whether he's lying because it's actually him?

Okay, all of this is reaching for answers. I may be wayyyyyy off. But after this episode you never know. D: I'm just really sad about Jinksy, okay? And Claudia, my bb Claudia she was crying. She is clearly not happy about this at all and when Claudia is sad, that just ain't cool bro.

Still. Just, this episode. It broke my brain. In the best possible way.

Okay, WH13 fans, what did you think of this episode and what happened? What this is possibility leading to? I just need to talk with someone about this because the two-week hiatus is gonna be killing me.

I've read the theory that the firing of Jinksy is a fake-out--possibly so he can become a mole for the Big Bad? Whatever the reason (if it's real or not), I'm still upset and Claudia crying just broke me. It's the Willow Rosenberg syndrome all over again: when my girl cries, I cry.

Mrs. Frederick's darkness...scared me. When did this show get dark?

Yeah, what a huge episode. I enjoyed it, even though it hurt me. <3

That seems to be the popular and most plausible theory, considering the major threat of the Warehouse they need someone who can tell when others are lying and try to gain information. But yeah, I felt upset because not just because I love Jinks and how he fit right into the family, but also because of Claudia. They formed a really lovely bond between each other, and suddenly it's gone.

I hate seeing Claudia upset, it just breaks my heart. :(

This show has always had a certain level of darkness to it, but I think with two really dramatic episodes in a row you'd think otherwise. It really adds the tension and mystery of what is going on this season and the bigger threat they are facing.

It really was a mind-whirling episode, that's for sure.

Somehow it does not surprise me that Mrs. Frederick went there. Like she said, she's not Artie. Dark but kind of cool.

And Poor Jinks. I wonder if this is his Baptism of Fire. I just don't think this is the end of him yet.

And Dude! Pete's Mom is a Regent! Wow!

Me neither. I mean, remember she choked Leena in order to get the Pearl of Wisdom, and Mrs. Fredrick is definitely a bit scary sometimes in regards to her authority. So I'm not surprised that she would use such tactics either, especially when lives are at stake sometimes you need to take those desperate measures.

I don't think it's the end for him, either. It seemed too short, too easy. There is something else at work here. Either he'll be switching sides or working as a double-agent, or prove himself in other ways.

Omg, I know! I can't wait for more of that because what a cliffhanger!

I was SO sad about Jinks leaving. If he's leaving. I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENING OT HIM! He just got there, and I love him, and I don't want him to go! And poor Claudia :(

Honestly, I'm not really sure how I feel about this season so far. I kind of think I liked season 2 better, but then, I don't know. This season has sort of stepped up the game, but then it's also been a little underwhelming too. I don't know.

And Pete's mom being a Regent?! WHAT WHAT! I just *blink*. I have no idea. I am VERY excited to see where this goes.

The only thing I saw in last night's episode that really bothered me was the whole Pete/Myka thing. I've said from day one that if they put them together romantically, I'll stop watching the show. And I stick by that. My heart tells me that they're just good friends, and that's all the show is hinting at. But then something happened last night that made me worry that maybe the show is actually setting us up for something more significant between them in the future. I just. I don't want that :-/ But...I won't worry too much yet.

It's still so vague about what exactly is happening to Jinks. I keep wondering if it's all a ploy, you know, like it was a setup so he can spy on their new enemy? idk idk

There's definitely a whole new feel to this season. I like it, but I'm curious to see where they're going with it. What it all means.

I think I can reassure your feelings on the Pete and Myka situation -- the actors and producers have said that there won't be any inter-romancing with anyone in the Warehouse. That is not their prime focus, which I am glad for. I think the vibe I got between them, mostly due to Pete, was because he didn't want to lose his partner. He almost lost her once before, he doesn't want to lose her again. I think this season is kind of strengthening Myka and Pete's relationship as friends and partners instead of a romantic pair. You know what I mean? So yeah, those are my thoughts on that subject.

(besides, even Joanne Kelly says that the only romance Myka has/will experience is with H.G. Wells..... ;D)

I really liked this episode.
I <3 Jinxy so I hope the fake-out theory is true.
But Claudia crying, I wanted to hold her.

Who is this new big bad? Why can't we see his face? Perhaps it's because we already know who it is.
My thought too.

The torture!!! I was like WTF?! Way to go there W13!
