I am going to headcanon that Anubis being evil is because Apep is controlling him and/or Apep's general chaos aura.

Although that could have been bravado on their part just to keep him from trying again. Hm... I like that idea.
I like that idea too!

Anubis is a werewolf like Jesus is a zombie. I don't mind some playing with mythology (SG1, for example, had a particular take and kept it consistent) but this was flat out wrong.
Also I agree with the above comments that it seemed weird to get rid of the big bad so quickly/easily.

Jenkins was a star here, and I think there's a lot we don't know about how his immortality works.

I don't understand why the original Guardian was immortal; the locket have anything to do with it? An immortal Guardian would seem to be a good thing though, helping them protect the Librarians who seem to keep running into more danger than they can handle.

Things got crowded and I can see why they might want to lose a character. They're all a little too similar at times to need them all working together; I'd like to see more definition of their specific skill sets. Ezekiel stood around with zero lines until his moment for heroism came, and then Cassandra was almost wasted except for pulling a lever at the end.
It also seems Stone is the potential replacement for Flynn, but it's not there yet, as his "we're Librarians" failure where Flynn succeeded proved.

Also that ridiculous pulling up the bridge. Werewolves and marines can jump!

Patchy episode overall that wasn't quite fun enough for me to overlook the flaws.

<i><Not so much with Jake and his sudden super strength</i> Yes, I don't know if we're going to revisit that? It came out of nowhere.

I haven't yet seen the Librarian movies so I was hoping the immortality might have been explained in those. Maybe not then!

I agree there's no way we're losing one of the LITs. Stone definitely reads as a potential Flynn replacement at this point, but then I was wrong about Leverage and who took over Nate's role as leader. And Leverage is what I'm comparing with in terms of you can have a new leader who does things differently but your team all need different skills/strengths or they're ultimately interchangeable and replaceable, not good for charactes we're supposed to be invested in!

So is this season gonna be all Egyptian gods? Hmm.

I love Charlene already. Competent older woman (visibly-older as well as immortal-older) who solves problems by making herself an impromptu magic harem? Wonderful. Although she seems more like a Librarian herself than a Guardian -- handles things more with wit and cunning than physical prowess.

With all Flynn's knowledge, you'd think he would have noticed that "I am incompetent and putting you all in danger, so I must leave" is a trope that never plays out well. At least he ends with "I'll be back" instead of "goodbye forever."

Apep as perky Canadian woman was the most adorable thing about the episode. Well, that and Ezekiel playing fetch.

If she'd been making the cultists have sex with her, then we'd have a problem, but just making them give her footrubs? When (if Flynn's original deductions were right) their original intention was to torture her? I say that's an appropriate punishment.

...I had totally forgotten Charlene was in the movies. Mostly I just remember them being kinda formulaic, and really underwhelming in comparison to the series. Wonder if it's worth doing a rewatch just to fill in her characterization, and decide how I feel about how well the retconning works.

Just rewatched the scene -- human sacrifice, that's what Flynn said the cult's deal was. And then Apep mind-whammies them all into killing each other.

So "magically seeing Charlene as someone whose shoulders they would want to massage" is basically the kindest situation they're in all episode.

Words cannot describe how sad I am that Ezekiel is no longer a werewolf, and that he will never do puppy things again, like play fetch, or chase squirrels, or be very intensely focused on bacon. :,(
