*** Actually, I was trying to be funny about something that's rather cynical. Someone earlier mentioned the difference in tone, and I think they're exactly right: IMHO, the only reason they crossed Alphas and Warehouse 13 was because they had already crossed W13 and Eureka, and SyFy wanted a hat trick with their Monday night lineup. W13 and Eureka were SyFy productions from day one, and Alphas was not -- hence, the difference in tone and the shoehorned feel of the crossover (the other two had whole-episode C/Os, rather than a quick cameo). I'm a fan of all three shows, but Alphas is pretty much a separate canon. (Or look at it this way: Why isn't Eureka's FTL drive all over the papers on Warehouse 13? Because despite occasional convergence, the two shows are functionally independent of each other.)

* How did a super-advanced sense of hearing allow Kearns to turn into [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Banshee]]? Rhythmic breathing at resonant frequencies?

** To me, the problem was in having Lindsay be the only {{Warehouse13}} character to appear. I missed part of the episode, was she the one who alerted Rosen's team? Shouldn't she have called in Pete & Myka [[AndZoidberg and Jinx]] because of suspected Artifact activity?

** My only HeadScratcher with the {{Warehouse13}}/Alphas/Eureka shared universe has nothing to do with {{Warehouse13}} (who have their secret purview which rarely crosses into the others). My question is why Rosen (expert in Alpha phenomenon) and/or genius level Alphas aren't relocated to Eureka. Skylar and Zoe would be right at home there (apart from the OneSteveLimit with Zoe). Even Skylar's antiauthoritarianism would find a kindred spirit with Zane.

*** There is a problem with that though. Unlike the other shows where weird stuff does happen, Alphas has basically superheroes existing in the world. Considering that both Pete and Fargo are huge comic book fans, you would think at least one of them would comment on the fact that super powers are suddenly confirmed as existing.

** There is a slight difference in the way male and female hearts beat, enough that a heart surgeon who knows what to look for can identify the sex of a patient from an ECG printout. Rachel has doubtless made sure that she knows how to 'hear' the difference.
