the-librarians-and-the-echoes-of-memory

Picking up immediately following last week’s episode, the season finale opens with Eve (Rebecca Romijn) stumbling through a dreary world run by “The Company” in which the Library has never existed struggling to keep the idea of it, and Flynn (Noah Wyle), alive in her mind long enough to find the Librarians (all of whom all only remember Eve and the Library as nothing more than a hazy dream). After finding her three friends, and sparking a glimmer of memory in each, Eve is captured and locked away in a mental institution with Flynn as her memory of the Library and the real world slips away. Thankfully, she’s done just enough prodding to reawaken the idea of better world for the Librarians.

the-librarians-and-the-trial-of-the-one

Has the end begun? With the Library beginning to crumble due to a tethering ceremony having not taken place, Jenkins (John Larroquette) provides a temporary fix while imploring Eve (Rebecca Romijn) to choose a Librarian for the ceremony. Against Jenkins’ advice, the group chooses to use the Library’s oldest scroll to help determine their fate. Unfortunately for everyone involved that means all three Librarian and their Guardian are transported to the testing grounds for the “Trial of the One” where Jenkins (controlled by the spirit of the Library) orders them to each face their deepest fear and then fight to the death to determine the one true Librarian. Failure to compete will not only sacrifice Jenkins life but leave the Library untethered, and growing less interested in humanity with every passing second.

librarians-hidden-sanctuary

“And the Hidden Sanctuary” continues to play on the concept of another Librarian leaving the Library. After Cassandra (Lindy Booth) freezes up during a mission, she decides to follow Flynn‘s (Noah Wyle) lead and take a sabbatical. Choosing to visit Havenport, the self-appointed “Safest Town in America,” she does her best to ignore the obvious magic in place around the town preventing harm to anyone or anything. The curiosity of a young boy (Benjamin Flores Jr.) helps reignite her curiosity and show Cassandra you can take the Librarian out of the Library but you can’t take the Library out of the Librarian.

the-librarians-and-the-silver-screen

Directed by Jonathan Frakes, “And the Silver Screen” offers an amusing adventure when Flynn (Noah Wyle) and Eve (Rebecca Romijn) become trapped in one of the Guardian’s favorite film noirs. Doing their best to complete the story, the pair only find themselves stuck in a loop and will need the help of Jenkins (John Larroquette) uncovering a hidden truth about the film, and the other Librarians (trapped in other films), to break the cycle and make it back to the real world.

the-librarians-and-the-dark-secret

The Librarians open up their Fourth Season by going back to the beginning, not the beginning of the series but the beginning of the franchise. News that one of the original cornerstones has been uncovered (which, if combined with the others, could be used to make the Library solid in this dimension once more) pauses preparation for the tethering ceremony to connect Flynn (Noah Wyle) and Eve (Rebecca Romijn) to the Library. Knowing the situation is dire, and the Librarians must stop the heretic Order of Shadows from recovering the remaining stones and destroying the Library, forces Jenkins (John Larroquette) to reveal the dark secret of who he’s been keeping prisoner in the Library for a century – Flynn’s original Guardian Nicole Noone (Sonya Walger).

the-librarians-season-three-dvdThe Third Season brought new challenges for the Librarians in the form of D.O.S.A. (the Department of Statistical Anomalies, a secret Unites States Government organization tasked with dealing with similar phenomena and who view the Librarians as potential threats) and Apep, the Egyptian God of Chaos, attempting to release Pure Evil on the world.

Highlights from the season include Stone (Christian Kane) and Cassandra (Lindy Booth) stumbling on a lodge full of Norse Frost Giants, Eve (Rebecca Romijn) targeted for death by the unstoppable Reaper, a mystical carnival run by Sean Astin, the search for the Eye of Ra inside the Bermuda Triangle, the discovery of a vampire retreat, and the return of Jane Curtin as the Librarians head to Shangri-La in the penultimate episode of the season.

the-librarians-2017-1-librarians

Dynamite Entertainment brings TNT’s adventure series The Librarians to comics beginning with The Librarians #1. For those unfamiliar with the premise, the Librarians are a group of talented archaeological heroes and their Guardian Eve Baird who keep the world safe from magical artifacts and groups who would use them for evil. Appearing to be set sometime during or after the show’s Second Season, which saw a more hands-on involvement by original Librarian Flynn Carson, the first issue of the series involves the group heading to the film festival of an archaeological hack who is murdered on stage by a mysterious wooden weapon by his longtime partner.

the-librarians-and-the-wrath-of-chaos

The Third Season finale wraps up both of the ongoing storylines involving Apep’s attempts to unleash pure evil into the world and D.O.S.A.’s interference with the Librarians’ work. Beginning with betrayal, Eve (Rebecca Romijn) allows the goverment to pillage the Library and kidnap Jenkins (John Larroquette) while sending Stone (Christian Kane), Ezekiel (John Kim), and Cassandra (Lindy Booth) on a wild goose chase to keep them out of harm’s way. Meanwhile, Flynn (Noah Wyle) remains in the Library salvaging what artifacts he can while preparing to sacrifice himself to stop Apep once and for all.

the-librarians-and-the-fatal-separation

Heading into next week’s season (possibly series?) finale, The Librarians continues to weave in pieces from the original Librarian movies. For this week that means both the return of Charlene (Jane Curtin) and Flynn (Noah Wyle) and company heading to Shangri-La (last seen in the The Librarian: Quest for the Spear). There’s actually quite a bit happening in this episode including Eve (Rebecca Romijn) learning that her old mentor is running D.O.S.A. – and wants Eve to switch sides, Stone (Christian Kane) getting some weapons training to help make sense of why he’s had an increasingly strong Elliot Spencer vibe the last-half of this season, Cassandra (Lindy Booth) getting used to her new gift, and the show saying goodbye to one of the franchise’s oldest characters (and foreshadowing the departure of another).

the-librarians-and-the-eternal-question

“And the Eternal Question” is one of the few episodes of the show to directly reference the specifics of one of The Librarian movies. A case of spontaneous combustion leads Stone (Christian Kane), Ezekiel (John Kim), and Cassandra (Lindy Booth) to a holistic retreat run by vampires who have found the one place on Earth they can live outdoors during the daytime. While it may be the weakest of the three made-for-TV movies, The Librarian: The Curse of the Judas Chalice did offer an unusual love interest for Flynn (Noah Wyle) in the undead, but ravishing, Simone (Stana Katic). Flynn’s previous relationships haven’t been discussed until now, and I still wonder just what happened to both Emily (Gabrielle Anwar) and Nicole (Sonya Walger).
