Brother AdrianIf Brother Adrian, the real one, and the Black Diamond Brotherhood were trapped who was it that warned Artie about unleashing great evil before he used the Astrolabe? Or was it because he touched the Astrolabe to begin with that the apparently dead Brother Adrian suddenly starting talking to him about the repercussions of using the artifact?
Brother Adrian: the more important questionIf Brother Adrian never came to South Dakota due to having already been trapped, how did Artie and Pete encounter him in the previous timeline? Nothing Artie did in the new timeline could have resulted in Adrian and the Black Diamond being suddenly trapped. Unless Artie himself traveled out and trapped them to aid his own delusions... yeesh, these writers.
Mrs. Frederic vs BatmanYes, I know I'm a pathetic nerd for even wondering this, and I really should get a life, but I found myself thinking; does anyone else here think that Mrs. Frederic would probably be able to successfully intimidate Batman?
Warehouse 13 is run by Cadmus.And Mrs. Fredric is Amanda Waller.
Myka and H.G. Wells are in love.Or at the very least have some Unresolved Sexual Tension... check out the meaningful glance they gave each other seconds before the warehouse exploded.
Pete and Myka will go on to be famous for something and eventually spawn at least one ArtifactH.G. Wells, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, probably a whole bunch of other historical figures have been Warehouse Agents and architects and while the regents are all Almighty Janitor s it seems that many people leave the warehouse famous for one reason or another.
Warehouse 13 contains the Lost Ark.The Lost Ark was stored in a large warehouse and it wasn't used during any war etc. Warehouse 13 seems to fit the role of such a warehouse.
Mrs. Fredric is a Time LadyOr Artie. He even has the pocket watch! (Of course, that might be considered evidence that MacPherson is a Time Lord...)
Alternately, Mrs. Fredric is a stable time-loop older version of Leena.Seriously, they do vaguely resemble each other, and I've thought a couple of times that Leena MIGHT be Mrs. Fredric's daughter.. but as long as we're Wild Mass Guessing, here...
The female H.G. Wells is, despite her claims, NOT the H.G. Wells that wrote those books, but merely a hyper-obsessive fan.Admittedly this is a thing where MST3K Mantra can certainly be invoked (after all in the Warehouse 13 universe Alice Liddell was a psychopath), but the main problem is that she apparently was bronzed early in the 20th Century (Syfy.com said that Warehouse 12 closed sometime in WWI, so I'm guessing around there), which would make it impossible for her to have written later books like "Men Like Gods", "The Shape of Things to Come" and "Star Begotten", not to mention much of Wells' socialistic writings. Instead, Wells is a very delusional fan (or perhaps one of HG's many mistresses), a Warehouse agent who, through her own encounters with Artifacts and her constant reading of Wells' books, came to believe herself to be Wells.
When you are bronzed, you only have a week or two of consciousness, though it feels like an eternity.If there is some residual energy left in the bronzed statue and it is all directed at the brain, the brain could perhaps continue to function for a while, but not forever. It would explain why Artie doesn't care about the bronzed people being conscious, but would still allow someone who got bronzed (who have nothing else to do or occupy themselves with) to have a long time to think, as H.G. Wells revealed she had. It would certainly seem like a long time to them, but it is not an And I Must Scream situation.
H.G. Wells new inventionIs a time machine. When you hear her ranting about how woman were treated in the past, she brings up a time machine. She certainly seems smart enough, had a lot of time to think and could probably pull it off with the Imperceptor (read:cavorite) technology.
Mrs. Frederic is immortal and was an agent of Warehouse 1She was affected by artifact that grants immortality.
The neutralizer goo is the good ectoplasm from Ghostbusters 2That is why negative emotions seem to counteract it's neutralizing qualities. And that is also why it turned Pete and Myka from bickering to playful in one quick splash.
The Ghostbusters sold some of their Cursed Artifacts to Warehouse 13 in one of their lean periodsVideo game only, but it would make sense for Artie and Mrs. Frederic to want things like Asmodeus' Hotline and the Pin-up Calendar OF DOOM. And, since the game is mostly canon with the films, it seems like this one's ironclad.
Loretta and Sheldon from "Mild Mannered" are actually Kaylee and SimonAfter the events of Serenity, the crew drifted apart, with the two lovebirds buying their own ship and traveling the black. One day, they happen upon some sort of Negative Space Wedgie, that shunts them into Warehouse 13s verse. It takes a few years for them to adapt to this different reality, but eventually they settle down in Detroit, change their names, and open a pie shop. When Simon finds the trunks, his first instinct is to use them to protect Kaylee, but the trunks, as with many artifacts, have a will of their own, and he finds himself becoming the Iron Shadow, convinced he's still protecting Kaylee by doing this.
MacPherson is not really deadHe is detached from his body at the moment of death by an artifact. He already had a Heel-Face Turn so he will be back and will help.
Mrs. Frederick, after doing a good job of running Warehouse 13, will get a promotion.She'll end up being put in charge of a super-secret organization dedicated to protecting humanity from Metahumans.
Mrs. Frederick has a teleportation artifact.This is how she manages to make such sudden entrances and exits.
H.G. Wells is planning to commit GendercideShe got along well with Myka and Claudia, she's mourning a daughter, and she rants about the treatment of women in the past. So far, the only people she shows feeling for or cooperates with (without killing them) are women.
Warehouse 13 is run by the same Secret Masters that run the SCP Foundation and Warehouse 23
H. G. Wells' daughter is
H. G. Wells will die, do a Face-Heel Turn, or get stranded in the future in the last episode of season 2
The Regents are all Time Lords and the Warehouse is their TARDISThey fled the Time War, fell through one of those dimensional gateways and ended up here during ancient times. This explains why the Warehouse is bigger on the inside. Every time the Warehouse has changed, they just programmed the chameleon circuit to turn into something new.
Many artifacts gain their power from a mixtures of the energies of a person or a group of people after they die and their association with the artifact-to-be and their claim to fame by the general public. This is part of the reason the Bronze Sector exists.This could explain in-universe why there have yet to be artifacts of the possessions of living people. Artifacts that were actively used in their source time period would have been activated after the creator's death. Dead Artists Are Better, indeed.
The artifact Hitler's Microphone is not an artifact.The finale is supposed to have that artifact as a focus point, but a neat, if maybe a bit common, twist would be that it actually has no artifact powers at all, but everyone assumes it does, and the ideas they have about what it could do make them too scared to test it, so it just sits there, a totally normal microphone.
Artifacts were given their power by the Eureka Artifact.The crossover episodes mean that the Artifact from the early seasons of Eureka exists in the Warehouse 13 universe as well. On Eureka, it has been shown that the Artifact is capable of strong outbursts of energy, and those exposed to the energy of the Artifact can gain immense powers (the two people affected on the show were at close range, the first Ascended to a Higher Plane of Existence, the second was said to be able to control the "Akashic field" and also exhibited powers like being able to heal others before being separated from the Artifact's energies by a teleporter). It has evidently been buried on Earth for at least millions of years, so if it periodically emitted energy pulses (dampened by rock and distance), it is possible that the people or objects that got hit could have been imbued with some extra sort of knowledge or power (though far less and more limited that the effects of the Artifact at close range). This would explain why most artifacts are connected with people of note (they used their power/knowledge or an affected artifact in their possession to gain fame/notoriety), and why there are so few people working at the Warehouse in modern times (even 40 years ago in "Where and When", you could see other possible collection teams in the background). Previously the Warehouse was a larger organization, but after the Artifact was discovered and contained at Eureka, it couldn't affect as many people, so most of the collection since then is to recover artifacts from before it was discovered, so fewer teams are needed today.
There is one Warehouse for each major civilization in historyWarehouse 2 fell when the Romans conquered Egypt. Warehouse 12 fell when the United States entered and helped win WWI, cementing themselves as the world's dominant superpower. And where was Warehouse 12? England, the dominant power during the colonial era. A rough list (feel free to fill your WMGs for missing sections):
There was a Warehouse 0 in Mesopotamia. Alexander the Great destroyed/conquered it when he conquered Persia.Because it fits. Surely the artifact problem didn't start during the Hellenistic era, and if someone was dealing with it before then, Mesopotamia is the original center of civilization. (Arguably it would have made more sense for it to be in Egypt for some of that time, but we already know the Egyptian Warehouse was during the Ptolemaic dynasty...)
Myka will return at the beginning of Season 3Yeah, sure. Myka's leaving forever. Okay.
MacPherson will be resurrected sometime later in the series.Artie recently stated that there are ways of doing it, just that it's dangerous to attempt. The trick for the writers will be coming up with a who and a why.
Season 2 was planned by Adwin Kosan and the RegentsThe reason HG wasn't bronzed by the regents, was that they knew about her desires/knowledge and use it to retrieve the trident and the location of Warehouse 2. Next season will have Myka finding out at acting outside of the warehouse to find out why.
HG will return in some fashion to act as a Hannibal to Myka's Clarice.Considering how many ways artifacts allow people to get around and things like the time machine allowing forward and back, it wouldn't be hard for HG to be able to communicate if nothing else.
All of the Regents are The Ageless, and there's about one for each iteration of the Warehouse.That's why the Organization is so top-heavy. The Regents stick around until they die, but putting someone with that sort of experience in a dangerous or even suicidal mission is a horrible, horrible idea. Some of the Regents either have a youthful disregard for their own immortality (like Mrs. Fredericks) and died before they could gain the cautiousness that comes with age, fell into Who Wants to Live Forever? and/or made a Heroic Sacrifice, or were killed in the line of duty. Most of the Regents not fitting the appropriate look for their time period can easily be explained by Magic Plastic Surgery, being a minority of the time, or both.
At least some of the Regents are actually ascended beings.Hear me out on this one. In the episode "Breakdown", one of the Regents named Theadora disguises herself as a waitress. Oma Desala in Stargate SG-1 is also an extremely powerful being who disguises herself as a waitress. The two look identical to each other, and are played (I think) by the same people.
All warehouse employees are Alphas.What's the drawback? Pete being immature?
Van Gogh's paintbrush is an artifactSimilar to the one about iCarly above, anyone who paints with the brush will be renowned as a fantastic artist, and everyone who looks at their art will be amazed by it's beauty, even if it's weird. Alternatively, they can paint things to life. But that's too generic.
Warehouse 12 still existsAnd is situated under the British Museum. Honestly... do you honestly the British Empire in 1914 would ever let the Americans in charge of something as dangerous as the Warehouse?
Warehouse 13 (and by extension, Eureka and Alphas) takes place in the "Normal Again" world from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Beatrix Potter was the pen name of Anyanka the Vengeance Demon.Anya/Aud's worst nightmare was something happening to her beloved bunnies. As her experimentation with mycological toxins for vengeance purposes during the increasingly technological Edwardian era turned back on her, giving her nightmares about her bunnies being put in dangerous situations, harmed, and worse, her fear evolved from bunnies being harmed with her unable to help into a fear of the bunnies themselves (a sort of Pavlovian response). Magic clearly hasn't overrun the world in Normal Again as it had in the Wishverse and the "What if Buffy died" verse, so the bureaucratic confusion amongst various government agencies ensures that the Secret Service and DCIS are unaware of the Watchers and the Slayer, and the British are still ticked about Warehouse 12 being moved so the Slayer and most Watchers don't know of the existence of the Warehouse. Most of the creators of artifacts put their own brand of energy into the artifacts by the focus and near-ritualistic repetition of what they did (see: witchcraft and its demon-worshipper equivalents), strengthened (or even changed outright) by their public image. Alphas are probably unrelated to magic, and more closely tie into the Mad Science of Eureka and Warren Mears. As for the thing in Sector 5? It is (among other things) the heaven-dimension equivalent of a Hellmouth. Beauty, comfort, energy, and a Mad Science field come from it the same way dark feelings, demons, and an increased magical field come from the Hellmouths.
The characters of Warehouse 13, Eureka, Alphas and Haven will all be involved in an Avengers-esque team-up.Of these shows, only Haven hasn't been canonically confirmed as part of the Syfy-verse, even though it has a lot of natural links to both Warehouse 13 and Alphas.
Jinks will end up Bronzed at the end of the seasonFace-Heel Turn, Good All Along The Mole, doesn't matter. After he is finished working with the Big Bad, he will be Bronzed, despite him having only tried to have done the right thing. It leaves open the door for his return at any time, if need be. And also makes a nice Call Back to his earlier (accidental) Bronzing.
Pete was once a secret, unseen crew member on the Starship Voyager.His Mom is Captain Janeway and his ex-wife is Seven of Nine. Clearly the guy's been hanging around in space.
Congratulations Jinx on your upgrade from agent to double agent.His disagreement with Ms. Fredericks was real, but after his first chat with Claudia, this is what the regents decided to do with him. That's the only way to explain him being a jerk to Claudia on the phone two episodes later, but being clearly happy to get her text message in the bar.
The watch Artie received from MacPherson is a Reset Button.Or, alternatively, a basic time machine that, unlike HG Wells', could actually change the past.
As of the double-length season finale, Janus' Coin has been coded to Jinks.He was potentially still useful information-wise when he was Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves, just a liability if he had any way to physically interfere, and the villain may not even have know that Jinks was being a mole for the regents. Since we have yet to see the coin again, it's certainly possible. The only thing that really counts against this is that the other option involving the coin would have given him another chance at beating the chess lock.
Steve will come back wrong.Every artifact has a downside, and the metronome's will be a doozy.
The Warehouse will come back wrong.See above, but substitute "pocketwatch" for "metronome".
Jinks will have some serious religious issues with his forthcoming revival.I'm pretty certain the Buddhist cycle of reincarnation doesn't include zombification by magic metronome.
Some people (Nikola Tesla, H. G. Wells, Claudia Donovan) have The Spark of Genius, possibly because of an Artifact.Their inventions are clearly not considered to be artifacts, and they can sometimes be duplicated or even (with the help of another gadgeteer / Spark) improved upon. However, the inventions are far beyond the understanding of typical science at the time (and can still be beyond typical engineering capabilities of the present), being based on logical leaps that happened to work despite not being obvious to anyone in the past or future. Georg Joachim Rheticus may have been one of the few Sparks who spent enough time in The Madness Place with a single, emotional project or item that an artifact (the compass) was created, or many minor artifacts may be produced by any strong/emotional Spark. M.C. Escher was probably not a spark, but rather someone the Regents hired to think outside and through the box and give the actual Sparks someone to give them ideas and further their own ideas in interesting directions.
H.G. Wells' request to keep her love of literature before most of her was hologrammatized was intended to be a Batman Gambit.She had memories related to her love of reading and literature that she hoped they wouldn't be able or willing to destroy after promising that she could keep her love of literature. She might have been able to break through the programming, depending on how the artifact worked (it seemingly did not work that was, from what we know), or might have been able to find herself through flashes of odd memories that she had every time she remembered certain books. This is in no way contradictory against her sincerely wanting to not in any way lose her love of literature.
Claudia will do a Face-Heel Turn in Season 4Claudia is pissed off at the Regents for letting Steve die, and she wants to use the resources of the Warehouse to save him. She's "tired of arbitrary rules" and wants to bring back a loved one, no matter the cost. This is exactly the same frame of mind that both H.G. Wells and MacPherson were in when they began their Start of Darkness.
If the Warehouse is rebuilt (as apposed to revived) it will be referred to as Warehouse 13.2Doubt it. As of the season 4 premiere, except for Artie, no one is aware of the (averted) destruction of the Warehouse... except maybe Mrs. Frederic.
The next Warehouse will be rebuilt in a different location
Warehouse 13 and Eureka weren't always part of a shared universeSo, season 2 established the shared universe in episode 5, "13.1" and in Eureka's season 4 episode, "Crossing Over." This much is irrefutable. BUT, in the season 1 episodes "Duped" and "Regrets", the actors who play Henry, Jo, and Zane show up, but not as their Eureka characters. So the way I see it, when the Eureka gang went back in time to 1947 and caused a bunch of changes to their timeline, one of the things that was changed was that Warehouse 13 and Eureka began existing in the same universe.
The Regents are/were immortals, with each having been an Agent at a previous iteration of the WarehouseJane Latimer is American, and apparently the most recent Regent. The head of the Regents is a man of Middle Eastern origin, possibly from Egypt, Turkey, or India/Pakistan (Warehouse 2 was in Egypt, 9 in Turkey during the Ottoman Empire, and 10 located in India under the Mughal Empire.) There was a Regent named Theodora, same as the Empress of Byzantium, wife of Justinian, and Warehouse 5 was in the Byzantine Empire. Warehouse 12 was located in Britain, and a British Regent. One Regent had the last name Petrov, and Warehouse 11 was located in Russian. There is a Regent of Asian origin whose actor has the name Loc, a Vietnamese name. Vietnam was once part of the Khmer empire, where Warehouse 6 was located. Another Regent had the name Ganz, of Germanic origin. Warehouse 8 was located in Germany during the Holy Roman Empire. While we are missing some other Regents of matching ethnicities (like Mongolian, among others), it creates an interesting idea nonetheless, when the pieces are put together.
Claudia's quest to revive Jinks mirrors H.G. Wells's attempts to revive her dead daughterI always wondered why most of H.G.'s backstory wasn't elaborated on very much. Maybe the writers were saving it for this plotline. According to H.G., she looked for an artifact to save her daughter, and got another Warehouse agent killed in the process, after which she asked to be bronzed. Maybe Claudia will face a similar scenario as Season 4 plays out. Heck, maybe H.G. will try to convince her of her folly, as part of her Heel-Face Turn. Although, looking at the opener, which still includes Claudia, she probably won't be out of the Warehouse's clutches for too long.
Season 4 will end with the world being destroyed and the team having to find a Reset Button for that. Season 5 will end with the universe being destroyed and the team having to find a Reset Button for that.Seems to be the way they're ending each season. Season 1, Artie & part of the Warehouse blows up. Season 2, team breaks up. Season 3, the Warehouse itself blows up. And each time, rather than preventing it, some sort of Reset Button is used to undo things.
Artie has an 'out' with the astrolabe, at least as far as telling someone. He can tell the dog since, being psychically linked with the dog, they're effectively the same mind. Plus, of course, it's a dog.Wouldn't that very same psychic link backfire on Artie once the dog is put "in grave danger"?
Myka will eventually come out as bisexual. But like with Jinks, it really won't be much of a plot point.At most, it'll be used similar with Kelly - more about the relationship and the demands of the Warehouse rather than "OMG! Bisexuality!"
Time travel will become a recurrent theme for the show.Mental Time Travel has already been explored with H.G.'s machine, as well as You Already Changed The Past. And now the latter trope has been averted with Artie's use of the Reset Button. I'll bet there's going to be at least one more plot line involving time travel. Although I'm hoping it won't be just another Reset Button.
The dagger is not a murder weapon, despite Artie's dreams.Maybe his nightmare is just being taken out of context. Now that the second episode shows that it may be an artifact, maybe it does something else, and his suspicion of Claudia being the "evil of [his] own making" is just a Red Herring.
Claudia's deconstruction of the Warehouse's organizational structure will be further explored in Season 4.It was actually refreshing for someone to have a different perspective regarding the necessity of Regents, Mr. Kosan and distinguishing them from the field agents. Now that Claudia has gotten to Jane, I think this issue will be tackled again as the season plays out.
The Brotherhood itself is the "evil of [the astrolabe user's] own making."It's starting to become a bit annoying how Brother Adrian insists that the pre-Reset Button scenario (where the world has lost hope) is much more preferable to the fact that someone has used the astrolabe to avert that timeline. Maybe they just want to keep the astrolabe's existence to themselves, but not due to any good intentions like the Regents being seemingly ordinary citizens, just out of sheer greed or selfishness. And another thing that bugs me is that there's a historical record of the astrolabe being used before (Robespierre's Reign of Terror). The mere fact that there was a record of that seems to imply that the astrolabe's use that time was not undone. With that in mind, Brother Adrian's seeming overuse of the word "evil" to refer to the astrolabe's consequence seems to me as just a subtle warning that they will stop at nothing to regain control of the astrolabe, even at the cost of other people's lives. Although I would have to wonder how they expect Artie to use the astrolabe again and antagonize him at the same time.
Jinks is an AlphaConsidering they've been confirmed to exist in the same universe, his ability to tell when someone is lying can be construed as an a Alpha ability. So far there really hasn't been an explanation for it other than he can just do it, and it would make sense.
Artie's pulling a Tomato in the Mirror for the "great evil," and Brother Adrian is a split personality.Or rather, Adrian is a real dude, but Artie only actually interacted with him in the original timeline. He's only been imagining him since, and any actions Brother Adrian has taken have either been imaginary or (like stealing the bag of marbles and mailing them to Hugo) actually performed by Artie in a fugue state. It's a bit suspicious that no one else has spoken to or seen the good Brother since the timeline switch, and there's surely going to be some kind of Prophecy Twist regarding the Great Evil and Artie's vision - i.e. the evil is probably not Claudia doing a Face-Heel Turn. Also, it'd be a lot easier for Artie to steal Artifacts than Brother Adrian, and this is minor, it's kind of weird that both times Brother Adrian has shown up, he hasn't actually opened the door or rung the doorbell or anything. Oh, and if Artie's doing this sort of thing, it was probably him who moved Alice's mirror out of the Dark Vault in the promo.
Dark Claudia from Artie's vision is actually possessed by Alice.If Alice's mirror has gotten out of the Dark Vault, it's fairly likely we're going to get an episode where she's escaped again. If she's possessing Claudia the way she did Myka, it would explain the vision without actually having Claudia perform a Face-Heel Turn. It would also mean the vision really was "of Artie's own making," if he was the one who moved the mirror like in my above WMG.
Alternatively, Artie in his vision is possessed by Alice.And the dagger just destroys a possessing being. Claudia is helping by removing (literally cutting Alice out) Alice, and her hateful expression is directed at the monster taking over her friend.
Alternatively it's the Dagger that's possessed by AliceAnd Claudia is along for the ride, trying to fight it.
Claudia will take over as the Warehouse's caretaker......which will make the search for another way to keep Steve alive much more urgent.
An artifact will be created by one of the main characters before season 4 ends.My best guess as to what that would be is an artifact that could keep Steve alive without the metronome. Or its nature would be left as a cliffhanger for the next season, if there would be one.
The rifle-looking thing Artie was holding when he welcomed Pete and Myka to the Warehouse is another Chekhov's Gun.A number of scenes and lines of dialogue from the pilot have already been revealed to be Chekhov's guns as of season 4, like the football and Pandora's box. Granted, the "rifle" (along with the straw hat) has also been seen being used by Claudia during the season 3 premiere, but that looked more like a Call Back to the pilot than a Chekhov's Gun. I'm guessing either that it may be connected with the hiring of new Warehouse agents (having been seen after Pete, Myka and Steve have been approached by Mrs. Frederic), or that it may be the book-end of the entire series. Or maybe it's not the "rifle", but the hat, for that matter.
The rifle-looking thing Artie was holding when he welcomed Pete and Myka to the Warehouse is Chekhov's Gun.Just because.
Brother Adrian is the evil the Astrolabe created.What it says.
Trailer the Dog survived the Warehouse explosion because of his link to Artie.That is, since they share a mind (sorta), as soon as Artie realized what was happening, Trailer did to. Which gave him enough time to (via Artie's knowledge) figure out some sort of personal safety plan. Whether this was hiding somewhere, using an artifact, or what have you.
The Claudia stabbing Artie is really Adrian using the Thimble to look like Claudia.The idea being that he, in trying to infiltrate the warehouse, disguises herself as Artie. Artie, not knowing it's a disguise and freaked out by the events, panics and turns it into a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Jinks can do deep cover despite being a terrible liar because deep covers require a lot of actual (ie truth) events to occur to happen.For instance, if his cover requires him to get fired from the ATF, he'd actually have to get fired (ie put down on paper with his superiors) that he's fired. This circumvents his inability to lie well since technically he did get fired. And so on.
Marcus' other for purposes of the metronome was already dead or comatose from all the abuse that Marcus suffered.In the comatose side, the person just wasn't feeling much (or couldn't do much). From the dead, well... for some reason the metronome just keeps working that way.
The dagger Claudia stabs Artie with is an artifact that will cancel out the Astrolabe's effect on Artie.Because Like You Would Really Do It
Leena is Mrs. Frederic's great great granddaughter. Her grand son is in a retirement home, and Leena's the right age to be his granddaughter. Mrs. Frederic also wants to protect her. Along with all of this, we don't know what Leena's last name or connection to the Warehouse is.Problem is that Mrs Frederic wants to protect all of them, not just Leena. So the only real argument that they are related is that they share the same ethnic origin.
Someone else will use the astrolabe to undo the blue orchid plague.The only apparent danger is if Artie uses the astrolabe; meanwhile, everyone else is fair game. And now that the dagger is at hand should the new user unleash another evil, things just got way easier.
Reusing the astrolabe does not undo the timeline created by its initial use.If the express purpose of the astrolabe is to undo the past 24 hours, then maybe that's all it can do. It's just that no one has actually tried using it twice. Or even if someone did, there would be no record of it, unlike Robespierre's "Reign of Terror". Heck, it has yet to be said if Robespierre did end up re-using the astrolabe at all.
The Warehouse allows a dead person to take care of unfinished business whenever someone dies inside it.MacPherson in "Mild Mannered" only disappears after Artie finds the watch in his B&B room. And Leena in "We All Fall Down" leads Pete to H.G. Wells's research on the dagger.
Mac Pherson is trolling the Warehouse from beyond the grave.Basically, one way or another he was determined to get Artie on the Dark Side. If the Phoenix didn't cut it, he had any number of backup plans:
Season 4.2 will begin with...Everybody sitting around in the boarding house in perfect health for a minute or so, and then Pete breaks the silence with: "So, Penicillin. Great invention or the greatest invention?" And then the show goes back to artefact of the week episodes.
The way to reverse the effect of the Orchid...Is inhalation of the gas form of the purple neutraliser goop.
Leena's death created an artifact
All of the Agents are BisexualThe Myka/H.G. Wells thing is pretty much canon. Pete has absolutely no problem with being ogled by another man (even though Steve really isn't into him), and is almost ecstatic when he realizes that Steve's ex resembles him and that he's Steve's "type." Meanwhile Steve identifies as gay, but he probably experimented in the past. Artie and MacPherson were very close; who knows how close? The odd one out is Claudia, unless she and Leena had a thing...
Season five will end with the birth of Warehouse 14And the final scene will be a flash-forward to 20 years in the future, where one of the current team is doing Artie's job, Claudia looks exactly the same but acts way more mysterious — and the new Warehouse is based on the Moon.
All or Most of the Agents will die in Series 5Myka will lose her battle with Cancer, Claudia's sister will enter the picture, killing Jinks while Claudia herself will be killed by Paracelsus, Pete will try and fail to revive Myka, and Warehouse 14 will be formed elsewhere by the Regents.
Myka is not dying of cancerThere's any number of reasons that it could have taken longer for her surgery. Remember the only person who told you she was dying was Paracelsus while he was manipulating Pete. He needed Pete to think she's dying so he would act to save her life. The start of Season 5 will reveal that the surgery was completely successful and she has a clean bill of health.
Warehouse 13 will end with a flash forwardThe final will move us several years ahead. Pete, Myka or Jinks will have taken on Arties job (whether retirement, crazy, death is to blame is up in the air)and we'll be shown them welcoming a new pair of agents to the Wearhouse. Claudia will have taken Mrs. Fredrics role.
Warehouse 13 is a S.H.I.E.L.D facilityIt was active and collecting weird stuff before the Fridge was created and Nick Fury thought it best to keep it active afterward in case the Fridge was raided. The Eagle sigil is nowhere to be found because this is one of his super-secret locations like Providence base.
Pete was whammied with a love artifactPete and Mike are a textbook case of Like Brother and Sister and all of a sudden Pete out of nowhere he wants Myka. This is the same Pete who used this to help them same Jynxy after the accidental bronzing
Warehouse 13 takes place in the same world as Defiance
Mrs. Frederick's husband was Frederick Douglass
The Warehouse moved to Canada
