songs--Theme song --Warehouse 13 Main Theme by Edward Rogers

  1. "No Reflection" by Marilyn Manson


Artifact: Featured:

  • Richard E. Byrd's Smoking Pipe: Grants control over the weather when the user smokes the pipe. It ranges from thunderstorms, blizzards, tornadoes and precise lightning strikes when the stem is pointed at the desired location.
  • Portable Ping Device: Allows the Agent's to access the Warehouse System offsite.
  • Boa Vista Plantation Token: Induces the exact symptoms of a spiderbite from the theraphosa blondi (Goliath Birdeater Spider) when one touches the token.
  • John A. Macready's Ray-Ban Sunglasses: Reflects light so well that it turns the user invisible, but renders them blind for double the length they've been wearing it. It also only renders the wearer invisible to the human eye, not to the digital eye such as from a camera.
  • Napoleon Bonaparte's Violin: Playing the violin summons glowing, concussive balls of violent energy that bounces around the surrounding area with enough force to demolish marble. Hitting a G sharp on the violin would cause an entire town to erupt in a wave of violence.
  • Bobby Jones' Golf Clubs: Magnifies anger so much that the slightest annoyance can cause the holder to erupt in a violent fury.
  • Catherine O'Leary's Cow Bell: Causes the surrounding area to erupt in a violent fire storm. Caused the Great Fire of London in 1666 and the Great Chicago Fire.
  • Birdcage: Causes surrounding avian life to turn hostile and attack whoever is holding the birdcage.
  • Maurice Vermersch's Waffle Iron: Makes the best tasting waffles but causes the consumer's skin to melt.
  • Headphones: Effects unknown, but Leena says it shouldn't be next to the mask.
  • Mask: Effects unknown, but Leena says it shouldn't be next to the headphones.
  • Clothes Iron: Effects unknown, but Leena says the iron shouldn't be left flat.
  • Rubik's Cube:If a person completes the cube, their intelligence will be increased permanently. Downsides
  • But if they take too long to complete the cube, then they will suffer from frustration and have fits of anger for long periods of time unless the cube is completed or it is neutralized.
  • Dagger: Artie calls someone to find the artifact before it "finds him."

Trivia: The date on the paper with the list of the 6 artifacts says "6/12/2012", about 8 months after Stand, which contradicts Claudia's statement on how Steve Jinks was dead for 3 days.


  • A continuity error of sorts occurs as Steve and Claudia leave the lingerie shop. At first, while Steve was monitoring the dressing room, Rachel (the sales representative) had her camera-equipped cell phone in-hand. When attempting to catch the Ray-Ban-wearing and otherwise-invisible Jordan, Steve grabs Rachel's phone. After the Ray-Ban snag however, Steve and Claudia are clearly leaving the shop, but the cell remains in Steve's hand despite their being no acknowledgement of this during their departure, nor thereafter.
