Mrs. Frederick is impressed with Steve’s performance and invites him to become an agent. Which he accepts and is introduced to the Warehouse team. He and Pete are sent out to investigate mysterious deaths based on Shakespeare’s plays.
They meet FBI Agent Sally Sakowski who proceeds to kick them out of her crime scenes.
According to Myka, who is now working at her family’s bookstore, the artifact causing the murders is The Lost Folio. Cursed by an actor who was rejected by Shakespeare.
One of the Folio pages is sent to Steve who is saved by Myka and Pete. The three of them crash an investment banker party and save three bankers. Bringing the folio under control in the process.
Back at the bookstore, Mrs. Frederick brings Myka a hologram of H.G. Wells. Wells explains to Myka that she’s not proud of what she did. That she became so consumed by her hate for the Warehouse and what it did to her that it turned into fear and she strayed from her truth. Wells asks Myka not to let the same thing happen to her.
Myka decides to rejoin the Warehouse.
Meanwhile, Claudia, Artie, and Leena try to figure out why a statue of Zeus is firing thunderbolts in the Warehouse and at Hera. It turns out Hera doesn’t like that Zeus sleeping around with multiple women and they need to separate them.
Claudia opens a box that contains a green beetle that burrows itself in the concrete underneath the concrete of the Warehouse.
