TNT’s The Librarians And the Rule of Three TV Show Review. The Librarians: Season 1, Episode 7: And the Rule of Three, lands The Librarians at the STEM fair posing as judges. Science projects begin to go haywire when someone introduces magic into the equation.

During this two-hour episode, we find out strange things can happen even on days off. The Librarians take a step closer towards fully bonding as an effective unit. This episode gives everyone a role to play, even Jenkins (John Larroquette) finds himself leaving the base and getting into the fray.

I do recall asking for more character development some episodes back. In the case of Cassandra (Lindy Booth) this was another episode where she surged. We find out from her background that she was a science whiz…with trophies. It doesn’t take Cassandra long to bond with Amy Meyer (Bex Taylor-Klaus), who is also a science whiz. Getting to see Cassandra geek out with someone else she can relate to was good. While working to gain Amy’s confidence, we are introduced to moments in Cassandra’s life that help fill in blanks. This was very well executed and she also managed to help her team overall. Cassandra has come a long way from being the girl with the Visual fx handicap.

Eve Baird (Rebecca Rominj), finds herself becoming more relevant in this episode and sells it fairly well. Actually the last few episodes she has come out of her box and delivered much livelier performances. Her showdown with Lucinda McCabe / Morgan Le Fay (Alicia Witt), was very entertaining. The only negative was after it was established how powerful Morgan Le Fay was, she didn’t kill Eve when she had the chance. To balance things out, when Eve had a chance to decide to kill Morgan or saving the kids…she chooses to save the kids. Hand well played.

Magic spells programmed into an app? Oh yes, technology was on display in this fair too. Ezekiel Jones (John Kim) was much more alive in this episode, especially with his kind gesture to Cassandra at the end. Does he raise his performance levels and balance out with his team? The answer would be…he is still a work in progress. For now we can see there was an attempt to sell his character better this episode.

It appears old Jenkins is much more than he appears to be. There was also a hint before some episodes back. After the Librarians handle the situation, Jenkins seems to be a bit upset with Eve for allowing Morgan to escape. Could there be something going on that the team will have to deal with in the near future? What is Jenkins hiding? With only a few episodes left, it looks like these questions may get answered.
