That wasn't Placebo's version of "Running up that hill". It was a group called Track and Field (although some are saying it is Stars of Track and Field, or Track N Field). Allison Scagliotti tweeted it the night of the finale. Please everyone stop saying it is Placebo! They never did an acoustic version of the song :)
OH YEAH! I forgot. Since MRS. Frederick was the keeper of the warehouse, if the warehouse got destroyed, she would die too. I forgot. Althought I have to agree, the shriveling up death scene was unnerving.
I agree with those who said maybe the explosion was too powerful to be contained by the barrier. Hope so anyway, otherwise H.G. appears really stupid...or worse, suicidal.
As for the watch, if it does work by turning back time then there is a problem. In that case, Mrs. Frederick would be alive, H.G. would be alive...and the bomb would be live! Everything would just happen all over again in an endless loop.
Only way out I can see is if the watch turns back time far enough that Sykes is also alive. Then H.G. can go Kempo on him until he agrees to disarm the bomb.
Not Mrs Frederick!! She was the best acted character in the whole show!! Fine to get rid of HG, she was irritating anyway but Jinks was great, I hope they bring him back, although will he be portrayed as soul-less perhaps? Then maybe he wont be so nice.... I do wish they'd have a longer run, I dont like this 12 episode rubbish that shows have now - oh the days of star trek style seasons are long gone. I know they need to save money but I get really fed up waiting so damn long in between series. Oh and when is Leena going to come out?!
My theory on why HG didn't put the forcefield around the bomb: from a physics standpoint, it was easier to protect the 3 agents with a shield, rather than try and bottle up the whole explosion in a tiny dome. Remember, she wasn't 100% even the shield would work, so she was probably pretty sure containing the explosion in such a small area wouldn't. The explosion was able to expend a lot of its energy by taking out the Warehouse etc, and thus was easier to contain in the bigger dome. That's my rationalization, anyway, as I had the same question at first. :P
Loved this episode--except I /didn't/ like Pete's idea to smash the coin. I was with Myka all the way--you don't kill someone to thwart the bad guy. You just don't. But the rest was great--loved Pete trying to protect Claudia from Jinx's death, loved Myka & HG's final moment as Artie & Pete were yammering seconds before the explosion, was really worried they'd kill off Leena and was glad when she was saved...all of it.
My last concern though is that all of this pathos will be undone by Artie's Artifact watch. Reset buttons need to be used sparingly, if at all!
That's how I took it with regards to the metronome and the stopwatch, but I'm wondering if the two artifacts are an either/or situation since Steve was killed much earlier than the warehouse.
I wondered the exact same thing in my review, but putting it around the three of them instead of the bomb allowed her redemption arc to a significant and satisfying conclusion because it was a truly selfless act.
I cried so much during this episode. First when Steve died, and then when HG and Mrs Fredrick died. I can't wait to see next season.
Anyone else wonder why HG didn't just put the force-field around the bomb and keep the explosion inside of that and they would have all been fine? I mean, if it can keep the explosion out, then why can't it keep it in? It should have been able to.
Loved this heartbreaking last episode of Warehouse 13. I hope that HG will be back again next years (and Jinks too).
I'd like that Artie's watch could turn back time to prevent the warehouse from exploding so HG won't be the hero but remain being the villain. That would explain that she is not re re instated (and so Jaime Murray could still play in others TV show).
Anthony Michael Hall played Sykes. He's very famous for 80s movies and recent stuff too and The Dead Zone tv series. Usually he is amazing. I liked him in this role, but he was muted a bit.
