Are you ready for The Librarians season 4 finale on TNT next week? It feels almost like an understatement to call this episode big. The future beyond this episode is unclear and, while we hope that there is a season 5, we’ve come to learn when it comes to TNT that it’s better off to not assume anything. If we do that, there’s a good chance that we’ll get our hopes up only to have them crushed later. (We haven’t exactly forgotten what happened to Major Crimes — it’s impossible to just push that in the back of our mind.)
We could rant on for a while when it comes to what TNT will or will not do with the future of The Librarians, but that’s not the ultimate focus of this article. Instead, take a look at the finale synopsis below for some details regarding the story itself:
After the world is morphed into a horrible and unrecognizable place – one where the Library never existed – it’s up to Baird to bring the Librarians together before this bleak, knowledge-less world becomes the new reality.
In the end, this is what matters the most for now: The story of Baird as she tries to find a way in order to ensure that she can save the much of the known world. Have the stakes ever been higher? This almost sounds like a terrifying version of It’s a Wonderful Life, one that is driven by a specific purpose and one that forces Baird to test herself in a way that she hasn’t quite been tested before. This should be a really intense finale — as much as The Librarians has brought you fun, lighthearted stories for much of the year, things are going to be a wee bit different.
As for the finale title, we adore it: “And the Echoes of Memory.” There is a sense of resolve that is present here, but also a terrifying sense of fear and longing. There is a realization that unless something changes, the memories of the Library may cease to exit altogether.
