Interview: Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelley and Jack Kenny Dish on New Warehouse 13 Episodes
Is it just me or does it seem like forever since we last saw Warehouse 13? And considering that last cliffhanger, I’m rather upset about having to wait so long for new episodes. It’s not fair! Fortunately, that wait is finally over and a brand new episode airs on Syfy tomorrow night. But what can we expect? Series stars Eddie McClintock and Joanne Kelley, along with show creator Jack Kenny, told me.
At the end of last season, Lena is dead by Artie’s hand. And now Artie has to deal with what he’s done, along with the fallout. “Artie’s having a very hard time dealing with what he did,” Kenny said. “He was affected by an artifact, but he sees it as his hand is the one that did it and so he’s responsible. And then there’s the tension between Claudia and Artie where we spend the next three episodes dealing with it in terms of what she had to do to him. She had to stab him and bring him back when he didn’t want to come back.”
McClintock joked, “Like I understand the guilt that Artie’s going through. When I was in college I drank and I was in a blackout and when I woke up I had shaved the dog. And I felt guilt about that but everybody was like but Eddie it was the tequila and I said no but it was my hand.”
One of the biggest questions I always get is whether we’ll see the return of H.G. Wells (Jaime Murray). Well, the answer is in and that answer is yes! Kelley spoke about the relationship that her character, Myka, currently has with Wells’ character. “I think there’s a lot of confusion and I think that we see these women trying to connect and try to redefine themselves after the huge events that kind of have befallen them both,” she said. “And I think that their relationship is kind of a constant journey.”
Finally, the crew talked about the upcoming noir episode. Kenny said, “I think it’s one of our most fun episodes that we’ve done.”
McClintock agreed, “We didn’t just put on the era costumes and then take color and turn it into black and white and rely on that. I mean we shot it with the lenses and depth of field that they used to use back in the day. The lighting was the same type of lighting that they used. So it really once you see it on the screen, I mean it really looks like we are in an old film, in an old noir film.”
Kelley said, “It’s so fun to go into work for us as actors and not only do we get to do Myka and Pete but also do noir versions of them. It was a really, really, really awesome eight days of work.”
Don’t miss Warehouse 13 on Monday nights on Syfy at 10/9c.
