The Egyptian god of chaos, Apep, is released from his imprisonment in the Great Pyramid of Giza by a Navy veteran visiting a museum exhibit, whose body he subsequently possesses. The Librarians track him to the Boston Science Museum, where he uses an old submarine to open a pathway to an ancient shrine that prevents the realms of evil and chaos from overtaking the world. When the group tries to stop him from unlocking the shrine, he uses his powers to turn them against each other, which they counteract by singing in harmony. Shortly thereafter, agents of an anti-magic government division, DOSA, arrive and place the Librarians under arrest. Apep subdues them with his power when they make contact with him, allowing the group to escape while the veteran, who has no memories of his actions as Apep, is taken away to be interrogated by the head of DOSA, Cynthia Rockwell (Vanessa Williams).

|Directed by: Marc Roskin||Air Date: November 27, 2016|
After having a dream of the world ending, Carsen seeks out his old friend Charlene (Jane Curtin), who has retired to a remote Incan temple and wants nothing to do with the Library. When Flynn explains that Apep has returned, however, she agrees to leave with them. The next day, the two wake up to find her servants dead and Charlene missing. Using a pendant Flynn gave her as a gift, the Librarians follow her trail to a supercollider facility in Alberta, where a failed experiment has allowed Apep to summon the Egyptian god of death, Anubis, who has turned most of the facility’s workers and guards into werewolves. While Flynn and the team work with the surviving crew to close the portal, Jenkins and Eve encounter Apep in the body of a perimeter guard, who leads them to the portal. With Ezekiel turning into a werewolf, Flynn, Jake, and Cassandra seal the portal, returning Anubis and his followers to the land of the dead while Apep escapes. Having confirmed that Charlene was not responsible for helping Apep in the first place, Flynn sets out to find her, as she is the only individual besides Judson who knows how to defeat him.

They find a remote hotel to shelter in, but the receptionist demands that they leave due to the hotel hosting a private reunion. They soon learn that the “reunion” is actually a peace summit between warring clans of Frost Giants who intend to seal their alliance by feasting on the crystal’s power. Posing as a giant, Jake is exposed when the real one arrives and he is tied up while the giants prepare to devour Cassandra. Using Cassandra’s magic and some help from the Library, the two escape.

The Librarians eventually discover that the school’s swimming team had been using mystical water from Greece to grant themselves incredible luck, unaware that the water was actually taken from the Oracle of Delphi, who turns out to be disguised as the cleaning lady. The Oracle explains that she had a vision of her own death and sought to prevent it by summoning the Reaper to kill Eve instead.

Posing as clowns, they return and look into the carnival owner, Kirby Goulding (Sean Astin), a magician who has gained control of real magic through a new artifact. It turns out that he has been using the carnival to track down his childhood sweetheart Charlotte (Felicia Day) so that he could perform an “Ascension” (a trick conceived by Harry Houdini) and send the carnival into another dimension. The Librarians try to steal his wand, which they mistake for the artifact, but are eventually caught and sentenced to be turned into wax statues. Stone deduces that the magician’s real artifact is his flower, which Charlotte manages to steal. Ezekiel uses it to lure him into the wax vat, erasing him and the carnival from existence.

Not wanting to risk the lives of the others, Flynn tricks them into leaving him behind while evacuating a flight being sucked into the Triangle and enters it himself. There, he finds that the missing Librarian intentionally stranded himself within the Triangle, creating a world based on the stories of Lewis Carroll to protect the Eye.

Cassandra, who has recently learned that her tumor has become terminal, bonds with one of them, Estrella, who offers to grant her immortality. Meanwhile, Stone and Ezekiel learn that the spa is built on soil full of rare meteor fragments, which Estrella’s brother Tomas intends to distill into an elixir that will allow the vampires to walk in the sunlight away from the resort.

While escaping from his treasure room, Flynn and Stone discover Charlene and spring her from captivity. Fearing that Apep will use her to access the Library, Charlene reveals that she plans to give up her immortality, which Flynn opposes.

They free him, but Apep soon escapes from Rockwell’s custody and takes control of her body. Baird reveals that she and Flynn have been playing Apep from the beginning in order to vanquish him with the Eye of Ra. Apep detonates a bomb of pure evil inside the Library’s catacombs and assumes a spectral form.
