Seeing the writing on the walls, the move to the British Empire proved to be the smartest one for the Warehouse since Alexandria. The introduction of working agents flourished under the Brits, and through the Imperialism of the British Empire, those agents were able to travel farther than ever before in their search for distant artifacts. Being at the center of the Industrial Revolution was also a boon to the Warehouse, letting it lead the way in the most state-of-the-art devices and upgrades. But then, with the assassination of Ferdinand, and the start of World War I, the next world power seemed clear.
On a rainy day at the Warehouse, Pete accidentally triggers an artifact that transforms the team into two-dimensional diorama versions of themselves, and returns the Warehouse to its original, unstable design.
Who knew Claudia had those moves?! OK, so maybe they're artifact-induced, but we're so in love with the spangles, we don't care!
