I know I have some Jaime Murray fans on here, and if the Warehouse 13 preview elicited a few squees, this short preview showing her in both Defiance and Warehouse 13 on Monday should drive you crazy…as they say, Jaime Murray looks good in anything… 🙂
In next Monday’s new Warehouse 13 episode, “Instinct”, H.G. Wells re-enters the picture to help Pete and Myka with an artifact that’s forcing confessions out of criminals. Meanwhile, the rest of the team deals with earthquakes INSIDE the Warehouse.
Don’t forget to tune in Monday at 10/9c on Syfy!
There was no new Defiance last night due to the holiday, so the next episode is next Monday, June 3rd – “There’s a Storm Coming” – and it’s heading straight for Defiance! Catch the sneek peek below, plus watch the actors describe each other in one word, and Grant Bowler and Kevin Murphy discuss episode 6 in “Shooting the Shtako”!

Two more episodes will air later this year.
To celebrate, LEGO took over Times Square and unveiled a life-sized X-Wing constructed from LEGO bricks – over 5 million of them.

The X-Wing will spend a couple days in Times Square, and then it will be relocated to LEGOLAND in California.
