Warehouse 13 Season 5 Review “Cangku Shisi”

Sadly, we have reached the second to the last episode of Warehouse 13. This week, we got some closure on the storyline of Claudia’s sister, Claire. We also inched closer to a Myka/Pete coupling that I still find profoundly disturbing. As they have many times, the team foils another plot to take over the Warehouse. This time, the culprit is Benedict Valda. He uses his Borg technology to harness Claire’s powers for his own purposes.

It’s too bad that the season is so short. Don’t get me wrong; it’s better than not having a season. But, I guess I expected the Claire story to go in a different direction. With the need for a resolution, though, her recovery had to occur quickly. Though Claire fights her Borg monocle, she’s only able to fully overcome its control with the help of Claudia. In another schmaltzy sing-along of Garbage’s “When I Grow Up,” Claire finally breaks free. Claudia figures out that if they turn the monocle around, they can send Claire’s power to Valda. This ultimately is a neat solution. Claire is able to return to normalcy, while the bad guy gets what’s coming to him.
