Allison Scagliotti is so wonderful, we just couldn’t get enough! Even though we had a video interview with this lovely lady, we still sat down at the roundtables to check in with the snarkiest of Warehouse agents.
Claudia Donovan is slated to be the Warehouse’s next caretaker, but she’s got a few problems to take care of first. With Paracelsus attempting to reclaim his former place as Warehouse controller, Mrs. Frederick is fading away, the Agents have been ejected from the Warehouse, and Claudia is left behind to take on the immortal. Things at the Warehouse aren’t super great.
What’s in store for Claudia in these final episodes? Read on!
Allison Scagliotti: So, what do you guys want to talk about? Warehouse 13 season 5?
What can you tease about your confrontation with Paracelsus?
AS: Oh, it’s my Buffy moment! It’s great! Claudia really gets to come into her own in that moment, and realizes that no, the WH is going to protect me, I belong here and you don’t, get out of my warehouse. It feels very dangerous, the first one back in season 5, and maybe this is a spoiler but I don’t even care anymore. We get to see what an alternative Warehouse reality would be if certain things transpired and how terrifying that is. But the main thing with these last 6 episodes is I think the fans are all going to be so satisfied – it’s a season that totally honors what we’ve all grown to love about the show – it’s fun, and we’re a family, and we’ve pulled out all the stops. We get to go to a Renaissance fair, there’s a telenovella episode that’s half in Spanish, I sing and tap dance at one point. It’s nuts and it’s great. I’ve been saying, I cried when I read the finale, I think everyone has, and it might be my favorite script of the entire show. It’s just – oh – so celebratory of the whole life of the series
Do you think the fans are going to be really emotional?
AS: Yes, but I think they’ll really like it. I don’t there’s any reason to be sad, especially because the finale just preserves the mythology and the legacy of the warehouse and make sit feel eternal. It doesn’t feel like something’s ending. It feels like your imagination could run wild.
