Next Monday (October 1st) is the mid-season finale for Warehouse 13! In the episode things come to a head as the Warehouse’s battle against an unspeakable power that has steadily consumed Artie Nielsen (Saul Rubinek) comes to a devastating conclusion!
Explains Jack Kenny, Executive Producer, Warehouse 13: “In a surprising and thrilling culmination of the evil that Artie created when he used Magellan’s Astrolabe in the season premiere, Eddie, Myka, Claudia and Steve chase Artie across the world to prevent him from unleashing a far worse menace on humanity.”
