Warehouse 13 - 5.06 - Endless - Recap
Note - I really dislike this series finale. In fact, every time I watch it I like it less. It's not that long-running shows don't get to have a clip show, although a bizarre one. It's that this is the last thing the audience will remember about Warehouse 13. Having been through 60+ shows, this audience deserved better. It actually deserved better all season. For me, Warehouse 13 should have ended with the season 5 premiere tacked on to the end of season 4.
Previously - Everything was wrapped up in a decent series finale….oops, penultimate episode.
Grade: D (and that's generous)
him an apple
Best Awww Scene / Best Character Interaction - Artie tells Claudia that it's okay to be a little selfish and be your own self
Best Quote - Pete: "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?"
Best Reason to Watch - It's the finale. If you need a reason, it's not worth watching.
Best Tagline - Endless Wonder
Best Action - Ninja cat burglar kung fu fighting
Most Way Out There - Steve's heart epiphany
Biggest Shock - Artie has a son
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 that pretty much negates much of what happens in the episode
The "Say What?" Award - With all the times that Claudia has said that she wants to be caretaker, how did Steve not call her out for lying if she really did not want to be one? He seems as surprised as everyone else. This makes very little sense and in light of the flash forward, it serves no purpose except to get Artie to reveal his son. Foul on that play.
