In what is now Cambodia, the Warehouse located itself for over four centuries. Thousands of east Asian artifacts were collected over this period - many with ties to the reigning religions of the empire, Hinduism and Buddhism. The Warehouse was located in the city of Angkor, known to be the largest pre-industrial urban center in the world, larger than modern day New York and protected by the wealthiest and most powerful empire ever to reign in this region. It lasted here until the death of Jayavarman VII, and the Thai rebellions began, throwing the empire into a state of political instability, and necessitating a move.
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!
