Trouble in Univille
26 September 2018 | by TweekumsSee all my reviews

Despite being the town nearest Warehouse 13 Univille has so far escaped the effects of any artefacts; that is about to change. Shortly after Claudia tinkers with her Farnsworth Device strange things start to happen in town. First the vet sees a group of marines moving past her window. Later Myka sees a man riding a horse down the pavement and both Pete and Myka see a group of cowboys engaged in a shootout. Before the latter to events their Farnsworth devices act strangely... this leads Artie to blame Claudia but she is convinced that her actions couldn't have caused the events. As they witness further events it is noticed that one person in each event looks the same... Pete makes a connection and if he is right the town is in real danger if they can't find a solution. In a secondary story Mrs Frederic tries to help Leena with the aftereffects of MacPherson's activities.

This episode was a lot of fun; the cause of the strange events in Univille wasn't too obvious; although it was linked to the prologue where Farnsworth's lab exploded in 1944 it wasn't in the way I thought it would be. Having the story set in the team's hometown led to some amusing revelations about why they aren't too popular with many of the residents. On the downside the subplot involving Leena was a bit of a distraction; hopefully something more interesting will come of it later. The cast does a solid job with the fun material. The final resolution was well handled and nicely linked to things that we'd seen earlier in the story. Overall a good episode.
