Episode 181 The Librarians S03E06 And the Trial of the Triangle

As The Librarians moves into the back half of its third season, the death of one of the characters continues to loom ominously overhead. Tracking down the Eye of Ra, the artifact that should help prevent the release of pure evil into the world, requires the team to descend into the wormhole popularly known as the Bermuda Triangle. Once there, Noah Wyle's script incorporates elements from Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass as Flynn Carsen is forced to examine his own life choices and how they impact those around him. Dave and Wayne predict who is most likely to die before the end of the season, and they take a brief look at the 2016 Doctor Who Christmas episode "The Return of Doctor Mysterio."

Episode 180 The Librarians S03E04-05 And the Self-Fulfilling Prophecy/And the Tears of a Clown

Dave and Wayne get together in Studio B to knock out two episodes during their lunch break. In "The Librarians And the Self-Fulfilling Prophecy," Eve is marked for death by the Oracle of Delphi, but some quick thinking and a silver compact help her defeat The Reaper in this episode that is bookended with the team in a pizza joint. With two high profile guest stars, "The Librarians And the Tears of a Clown," finds Sean Astin as a heart broken sociopath bent on finding the girl who jilted him at a carnival some twenty years prior. Playing his lost love, Felicia Day rocks the episode in a role we rarely get to see her perform.

Episode 178 The Librarians S03E02 And the Fangs of Death

Briefly reunited with Charlene, the team must fight off not only Apep, but also Anubis who has been released via a hole in the space/time continuum. To complicate matters, some of the military personnel working at the super collider facility have been turned into werewolves, but the team rises to the occasion and sends the two villains back through the collider. Additionally, we learn a rather important detail concerning Charlene and her connection to Jenkins and The Library.
