Ezekiel uses the Magic Door to visit his mother and sisters, but his mom takes time out from celebrating Thankstaking Day to do a little taking on the side. Unfortunately, she steals a painting from the Bank of Thieves, and the team unites to return it to its "rightful" place. Along the way, Jenkins comes to the rescue, and not only does he save the young Librarians but Santa's sleigh as well.
