Review - Warehouse 13 Season 2 Episode 7 For the Team

With the inclusion of Claudia, Warehouse 13 could have more diversity in the field, but never really took advantage of that until now. This week, the Myka and Claudia went to find the artifact while Pete and Artie stayed indoors.

The plot was average, the artifact being a ladle which made an energy drink toxic and Pete and Artie finding the courage to ask out women. The inclusion of H.G. Wells, however, was done very well. She returns, but not with the destructive anger we last saw her with, but a resigned outlook towards the world, having no one left after over a hundred years. She helps Myka greatly (slightly pushing Claudia out of the way in the process), and we see another side to her. According to H.G., her bronzing was due to her sex, because it was a different time. And in telling Myka, she gains her trust, even revealing that she'd like to become an agent again. Is H.G. genuine or pulling a long-con?

"For the Team" was a solid mix of everything, staying even-keeled throughout the hour. Warehouse 13 rarely has meaningful pathos, but Jaime Murray was great in bringing out emotion in her character and Joanne Kelly reacted in equal measure--simultaneously expressing fear of H.G.'s possible deceit.

Score: 8.6/10
