Synopsis: After spending time apart, the librarians are drawn back together when a strange storm hits Manhattan, while Jenkins learns the Library is unstable.
Review: Flynn and the team go up against Shakespeare’s Prospero and Jame Moriarty as they attempt take over the world via the use of the magical ley lines that were reactivated in the shows first season.
The team are reunited to Manhattan as they are each summoned by their flick books to hunt down several different objects in the museum. Moriarty who Flynn mistakes initially for Sherlock Holmes is doing all he can to charm Eve. While Ezekiel Jones, Jake and Cassandra are all seeking different objects, which are all elements in Prospero’s magical spell to whip up a nasty storm.
The resolution of this story happened quite quickly, but ended things with Prospero and Moriarty getting away, which suggests to me that they are to be the main villains this year.
It was nice to see the team back together again and the humor in the series is still quite prevalent. I particularly enjoyed the moment where Ezekiel, Jake and Cassandra wind up bickering like kids and realise the the reason that they could not work well together on their own terms was because they didn’t have Eve’s leadership.
I look forward to seeing how this opening story resolved when Syfy here in the UK show the second episode next week.
- Great to see the team back
- I felt the final few minutes were a bit rushed
