Warehouse 13 - 5.06 - Endless - Preview




Warehouse 13 airs Monday at 9/8C on SyFy.



For better or worse, shows often become synonymous with their finales. Some elevate a series beyond what it was. Hello, The Fugitive. Some leave people angry and disappointed, like The Sopranos or evidently How I Met Your Mother. Some will forever be debated. Looking at you LOST and Seinfeld. So what is Warehouse 13's finale legacy? To be honest, I'm not sure. It's a weird little clip show montage that is high on character catharsis but low on action or even fun. My guess is that how you judge the finale will depend in part on why you watch the show. If the characters are the most important part and you just want to spend a little more time with them, then this should be an exceptional finale for you. If you are more interested in the action, plot, artifacts, or mysteries, then chances are you will prefer the previous episode as a finale.

The saga begins with Mrs. Frederic saying the warehouse is ending and demanding that they all contribute their defining moments at Warehouse 13 to the time capsule. They do this by placing their hand on Arthur's Round Table so the warehouse can sift through their memories and choose the pinnacle for them. Obviously Pete rejects this assignment, feeling like they are giving up the warehouse without a fight. The warehouse means too much for him to just walk away and he sees the other's acceptance of their fate as a personal affront. He storms off but one by one, they do as they are told. For each character, we get a clip show of their greatest hits and then a defining moment that was not previously aired. Some are funny like Claudia's, although the ramifications of hers makes little sense as far as her characterization goes, especially with having Steve as a best friend. Artie's is shocking, a huge twist to the character that I never expected. Steve's is full of wonder and Myka's, revelation. They each get to say goodbye to the warehouse in their own way, a cathartic release of emotion we as the audience take with them. While I would have preferred to make last week's episode a two-parter and devote more time and depth to stopping Valda, many fans will find this a satisfying way to say goodbye to the characters they have come to love.


Grade: B-

Best Scene - Artie breaks down while talking to the warehouse

Best Awww Scene / Best Character Interaction - Artie tells Claudia it's okay to be a little selfish and be your own self

Best Quote - "Okay I've got an idea. How about instead of sitting around the mystical table of kumbaya, we do something crazy like, I don't know, stop it from moving, right?" / "I just want you to be happy."

Best Reason to Watch - It's the finale. If you need a reason, it's not worth watching.

Best Cameo - H G Wells

Most Surprising Cameo - *****

Best Action - Ninja cat burglar kung fu fighting

Most Way Out There - Steve's moment

Biggest Shock - Artie's moment. It is definitely a "What the what?!?" time.

Funniest Scene - Claudia's defining moment

The "I Wish I Were You" Award - Steve, who gets to see a lot of great warehouse moments we don't get to see. Not fair! He even got to see Mr. Frederic.

Bittersweet Moment - all of them shouting, "Best job ever."

The "You've Thought Too Much on This" Award - Steve knows exactly which one of the Munsters each of them are

Biggest Hypocrite - Artie

The "What the Heck?" Award - the flash forward at the end pretty much negates much of what happens in the episode

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
