WAREHOUSE 13 meets Mad Men in the When and Where episode while tackling the question of whether or not you can change the past. Rebecca St. Clair tells the team about a 1961 case she and Jack investigated where four women connected to a were turned to glass and shattered, explaining that she has no memory of the last day of their investigation. Helena realizes that their twenty-two hour, nineteen minute blackout means someone used her time machine and to go back to that day via Jack and Rebecca. After a film in the time machineâs crate shows it was Pete and Myka who went back, they do just that and find and hide the artifact, but are unable to prevent any deaths.
I knew the time machine had to come into play, but it happened much sooner and in a much more interesting way than I expected. The case itself is a bit meh - I pegged the wife very quickly -but itâs also not the point of this very rich episode. Iâm glad Rebecca gets such a lovely and bittersweet send-off with her character starting her younger selfâs romance with Jack with her dying breath.
Helenaâs reveal of why she went back in time and what she so desperately wanted to change is deftly handled and her hopeful face when she asks if Pete and Myka were able to save anyone breaks my heart. Does anyone doubt that what she did to the men who killed her daughter was in fact the worst pain a person can suffer? Iâm glad Warehouse goes with the whatever happened, happened version of time travel. Anything else would be much too messy.
