After an artifact search goes wrong, Pete finds himself trying to take down a regent on the twisty Around the Bend episode of WAREHOUSE 13. Pete acts erratically during a mission to retrieve an earthquake-causing walking stick, to the point that Myka calls for an intervention because she thinks he`s drinking. Pete thinks he's on a mission from Mrs. Frederick to find a breach in the warehouse and he soon believes Valda is selling artifacts and threatening the team. He sets up a meeting with Valda at a junk yard, and is set to shoot him when Artie and Myka arrive. They figured out that a telegraph Pete played with at the museum where they found the walking stick was an artifact that caused many soldiers to go insane and that Pete has been having paranoid delusions. Artie manages to shock him back to reality before he can kill anyone.
Around the Bend is darker and more intense than we usually see with Warehouse 13. There are nice twists, and I like that clues like the tapping sounds and the waitress's odd look are there. Because the regents are so mysterious, it's easy to buy one of them could go rogue and I totally bought into the story. I love that Artie's first attempt to re-balance Pete comes in the form of Oye Como Va. It's just so gloriously random. The shoot-out scene is the most intense we've seen on Warehouse 13, and I like that we saw more of Valda and that he's willing to forgive, of not forget. Plus, we see Pete touch Mrs. Frederick's face and survive.
