Review - Warehouse 13 Season 2 Episode 11 Buried

Warehouse 13 went all out with "Buried," the first part of the season finale. After three college students discover the entrance to Warehouse 2, they become mummified and Mrs. Frederic begins to suffer from a brain overload, the effect of being Warehouse 13's caretaker in addition to Warehouse 2 making her its caretaker.

H.G., Myka, Pete, and Valda enter Warehouse 2, located in Alexandria, Egypt, and find an awesome interior. Filmed Sanctuary-style--with all visual effects--the inside of the Warehouse looks fantastic and fairly realistic, especially in comparison to the "Sri Lanka" in Covert Affairs. The four pass a series of dangerous tasks, but Valda, largely a side character without too much significance, has to sacrifice himself to fulfill an arbitrary rule of the Warehouse that one must die, so the death was pretty much a wash.

There's a subplot involving the transfer of caretakership of the Warehouse from Mrs. Frederic to Claudia, who apparently is special for reasons unknown. In the end, Pete stops the Warehouse from consuming Mrs. Frederic's mind and Claudia is saved from taking on a monumental role.

However, H.G., finally reveals her trump card, taking out Pete and Myka before walking off. Is she still interested in her daughter? Did she find something in the Warehouse? Did Artie leave the Warehouse to catch her? We'll have lots to look forward to next week!

Score: 8.9/10
