Television Review: Warehouse 13, "Don't Hate the Player"

Published: August 13, 2011
It's a special Eureka crossover on Warehouse 13 when Douglas Fargo (Neil Grayston) finds himself trapped in a virtual reality videogame -- one that's been given a bit of an extra boost from an artifact. Claudia (Allison Scagliotti) is called in as his emergency contact, and she and Pete (Eddie McClintock) risk entering the game while Myka (Joanne Kelly) works out what the artifact is, and how it has caused the game to become a psychic deathtrap.
While Elf Claudia and Gladiator Pete play their way through the levels of the dungeon -- that look astonishingly like Warehouse 13, including a rhyming King Artie -- Artie (Saul Rubinek) and new agent Steve Jinks (Aaron Ashmore) work a separate case together involving a rather deadly painting. But they're not the only ones on the scene, as we once again encounter FBI Agent Sally Stukowski (Ashley Williams), whom we already know to be secretly working against the interests of the warehouse.
There are a lot of fun surprises in this episode, particularly seeing Fargo's crush on Claudia manifest itself in embarrassing ways in the game design, and a musical performance by one of the main characters. However, the ending is an absolute chiller that will leave viewers fearing for the fate of the warehouse -- and those in it!
Warehouse 13, "Don't Hate the Player," airs Monday, August 15, at 9pm/8pm CT on Syfy.
