Synopsis: When dissensions threaten’s the team, Baird takes the Librarians to a charismatic self-help guru’s team building camp on the edge of a forest where people have been mysteriously disappearing. Is there a monster in the woods? Or is it something far more sinister?

Review: In the wake of Flynn leaving the Library and Jenkins giving up his immortality to save the life of Nicole. The team is at breaking point, but when the Library sends them to summer camp they are reinvigorated by a mystery, which is so hot that even DOSA has a hand to play.

This episode focuses on the aftermath of last weeks episode, but while doing so pays playful homage to all those 1980’s summer camp movies like ‘Meatballs’ and numerous others like it.

Pretty much all our lead actors have their moments, but it is the potential romance with Jake and one of the camp instructors that lead to the team figuring out why so many of the campers have been going missing. Jake’s skills as a linguist go towards helping them solve it.

Cassandra drives Ezekiel to distraction with her constant pranking and I have to admit. Even I found some of the pranks she was playing somewhat amusing. Put me in mind of some of the crazy stuff I used to pull as a teen. Though Cassandra’s hyperactivity and constant upbeat attitude would likely drive even me nuts. So I felt a little for Ezekial who was trying to focus on the reason why they had been sent to camp.

Lindy BoothRebecca Romijn, and John Harlan Kim all put in fine performances, but it’s Christian Kane that somewhat steals this episode and his sensitivity toward Sarina who was played nicely by Dilshad Vadsaria and is a character I wouldn’t mind seeing recure at some stage. 

Overall. This was a reasonably okay story with a little more on the comedy side, which played as a little heavy handed at times. It was nice to see DOSA back again from last season. Hopefully, they recur again at some point.
