Exclusive Interview with John-Paul Nickel for Warehouse 13 on April 17, 2014Interview with Jamie RubyWritten by Jamie Ruby
To many fans' dismay, Warehouse 13
unfortunately reached its end last night on Syfy. The writer of the series finale, John-Paul Nickel, who also wrote the episodes "The Greatest Gift" and "The Big Snag," recently talked to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview about working on the episode.
In the series finale, fans got to see the characters' defining moments. Nickel had some of his own from the show to share. "I started as a fan of the show, not on it in any way, and then I got hired as the writers' PA, so I went from fan, to coffee bitch, to guy who wrote the series finale...I kind of have a few defining moments. The first is, Jack gave me the second Christmas episode ("The Greatest Gift") to write, and the fact that I got to write not just like a freelance staff, not just any episode in the series, but the Christmas special. And there were extenuating time circumstances involved with that, so to be able to write quickly and still be treated like a writer on the staff, and to be given that chance to actually sit down and write the story and be welcomed aboard, and write and do rewrites, and then go up and shoot, just like I was any writer, to me that was amazing.
