I have to give this week's bone-breaking episode one thing: "No Pain, No Gain" answered a question I have been asking for the better part of four seasons: Where do artifacts come from?
And now we know that they are the cumulation of a person, an item and an event happening in just the right balance. Oh, and apparently Mrs. Fredric (and now Claudia) can sense them before they happen. Of course, I’m guessing that Mrs. Fredric doesn’t actually try and go to the birth of every artifact.
Who wants to bet that the larger majority of artifacts are created at horrific events? I know at least a few of the artifacts they have bagged this year were. Is anyone else looking forward to more modern day artifacts like Anna Nicole’s necklace that makes you super sexy, but also a bit of a bimbo?
Speaking of artifacts, how were Brother Adrian and his ilk able to stroll through the Warehouse picking and choosing what they took? For that matter, how did they know what specific items to take?
For a secret government program, Brother Adrian seems awfully knowledgeable about Artie and the Warehouse. While I’m on the question asking spree... did anyone else catch Claudia and Myka using an artifact to recover an artifact?
First, this completed one of my wishes from last week’s Warehouse 13 Round Table discussion of having Myka and Claudia team up. But second, I thought Artie didn’t trust anyone to use an artifact to recover another artifact except himself. Apparently stressing over Claudia killing him has him distracted.
It was great to see Pete let his guard down and admit to Myka that he loves her. I would love her too if she would just brush her damn hair a bit more! Overall it was a fun episode with a good amount of heart in the middle of it all.
So what other modern day artifacts do you think there could be? Post your idea for a modern day artifact below, but remember: don’t be to mean!
