When it comes to finding where you belong, "What Matters Most" is surrounding yourself with people who care and love you; this theme is forever present in Warehouse 13 as a series, but this installment really put the motif to the test, as the bad news and confessions just kept coming.
Nick being right in the middle of the Warehouse family was something I didn’t see coming. In hindsight, it makes perfect sense for Nick to be Charlotte’s mole and I’m excited finally see some progress on the longer story arcs. Plus, Nick being the mole gives a very meaty story to Claudia.
Claudia wanted to pay forward the chance Artie took on her, and - no matter how Claudia tries to portray herself - she is an incredibly trusting and emotional person. On one hand, Claudia really embraced another step in her maturation process and demonstrated the capabilities needed for being a caretaker... but she’ll probably take the news of Nick being a mole very personally. She opened herself up to him and he took advantage of it.
Pete and Myka’s trip to a poor imitation of Wysteria Lane (I’m sure Bree Van De Kamp made far better cookies) wasn’t the strongest of cases in the beginning aside from the usual banter between Pete and Myka:
Pete: Grip strength is the first muscle to go.
Myka: Oh, I know how important that is to you. | permalink
However, the ending of Pete and Myka wrapping up the effects of his artifact whammy? It was beautiful. There’s a lot of love between Myka and Pete. Maybe it’s romantic love, or it might be deep friendship. Whatever it is, they are partners and they look out for one another. Pete’s confession and his old drunken days are still incredibly painful for him. The weight of his past actions weighs on his shoulders and influences almost every decision he makes.
For Pete to confess in Myka to that degree shows how much trust and confidence he places in her. And I can only wonder what Myka’s decision now will be now that she has ovarian cancer. Will she attempt to go it alone so no one will worry or will she tell her friends?
With Steve committing himself completely to the Warehouse Myka won’t get the chance to lie.
Quickly, Steve and Abigail are more computability than either of them come across. Being able to detect lies and basically reading people for a living forced them to open up and talk about what was actually bothering them; and thanks to their small sessions with each other, both of them made the B&B a little more like home.
