** If the personal effects aren't dangerous or have powers... why the heavy security then? Warehouse personnel are certainly GenreSavvy enough to have ways to counter things like artifacts acting up. The Dark Vault has backup generators for instance. It's not that dangerous things need to be accessible, it's the security surrounding non-dangerous things with no powers at all.

** You could chalk it up as an attempt to be GenreSavvy. Wells' had already demonstrated that she had contingency plans in place. He may well have suspected she developed a counter to the tesla and decided to go the lethal route. She just thought ahead on that, too.

** For what it's worth, it is in-character for them to bronze their enemies, seeing as how it's their ''entire job'' to keep dangerous things safely tucked away until the world is ready to co-exist with them.

** It was implied that there ought to have been more agents, but Artie had seriously been letting things slide a lot. Artie got badly emotionally burned over the [=MacPherson=] affair and it basically amped up his already secretive and paranoid tendencies to the point that he just let things slip until Mrs Frederic forced his hand with the hiring of Myka and Pete.

to:

** Pete's mentioned that his vibes aren't always trustworthy, and he goes along with them because the one time he didn't, his dad died. Maybe Jane did get a vibe, but like Pete, they aren't always trustworthy, so she chose not to worry her husband with a potential false alarm.




to:

** I don't know about multiple people; seems to me like someone brought Marcus back, died, and the metronome just kept him alive even after that.




to:

** I figured it was just her own Tesla from back in her Warehouse 12 days and she had it on her the whole time. There was no indication she found it in the Warehouse.




to:

** The Dhoti got rid of the evil in Walter's heart. I highly doubt it would get rid of Claire's powers, since those are activated by intense emotions, not any actual evil intent. The Dhoti instills peace to counter hatred; at most it'd calm Claire down temporarily until something else set her off.

** Already brought up on the Headscratchers/{{Alphas}} page. Basically, it's been established that Artie has protocols for determining whether or not an Artifact is responsible for weirdness. Presumably, those protocols include determining whether or not an Alpha is involved. Maybe there's an Artifact that keeps track of every Alpha in the world.

* Now that Series/{{Warehouse 13}} is known to share a universe with {{Alphas}}, it's pretty easy to see the agents' special abilities (like Pete's vibes) as being Alpha powers. But that couldn't have been the writers' original intent. If {{Alphas}} hadn't come along, would the agents' abilities have been explained as being artifact-related? From the pilot, I especially got the impression that Leena's aura powers were the result of some artifact's influence.

Added DiffLines:

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Open Sesame]]
* I understand PlotTailoredToTheParty but why in "The Greatest Gift" would Artie even suggest that they'd have to find another way in unless one of them knew how to say "Open Sesame" in Arabic? If he knew that was the password, wouldn't he have simply looked up how to say it beforehand?

** TheOtherWiki also notes that the goo is made by Global Dynamics (Eureka). So it may very well be that all three organizations coordinate tracking methods and pass out pings appropriately. One could easily see it going like: W13 (is it something crazy and unexplained?) No? Go to -> GD (is it something crazy?) No? Go to -> Alphas (is it a person?).

** Both the WildCards books and the WhateleyUniverse stories feature “inventor” characters whose inventions are actually just channeling their creator’s supernatural power. They shouldn’t work under the normal laws of physics, but the inventor [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve believes they should work]], so they do. What if certain people like Wells and Farnsworth in the Warehouse 13 universe have a similar ability? The resulting items might look vaguely scientific but under the hood they would be just like any other artifacts; [[MagicPoweredPseudoscience powered by magic]].
