I’m not over it. Still. Almost a week later, it makes my little gay heart weep. Still. I just can’t stop thinking about the “Warehouse 13” finale. Still. Much of this is because of the wonderfully suggestive open-mouthed acting of Jaime Murray. Her HG isn’t exactly a poker face when it comes to her desires. But just as much, if not more, is due to Joanne Kelly’s subtle, poignant portrayal of Myka. Her cool, rational Agent Myka Bering has always been the perfect counterpoint to the excitable, overgrown Labrador that is Agent Pete Lattimer. But with the introduction of HG, we’ve peeled back another layer to see her warm, vulnerable heart.
What shipper long suspected, Kelly confirmed at Comic-Con this summer when she confirmed that Myka and HG “fell in love a little bit.” But in the finale, she gave a clinic on all the ways to say “I love you” without ever saying I love you. It was wonderful and terrible and something I won’t soon forget. That’s stick-to-your-ribs storytelling. But it wouldn’t have worked without Joanne, whose character has really grown the most on “Warehouse 13.” From uptight and by-the-book to badass and unexpectedly sensitive. Also, I’m a sucker for that long, lean smart yet slightly geeky type. She’s a charmer that Joanne, and a looker. And a heartbreaker with one look – or, in this case, many. Dammit, that pocket watch better do a lot more than tell time. Happy weekend, all.
