The Librarians and the Curse of Cindy

A love potion run a muck sends the Librarians in search of the my the reasons why a cult has sprung up a failed reality-TV star named Cindy (Rachael Perrell Fosket). While humorous, such as when Flynn (Noah Wyle) and Stone (Christian Kane) fall for Cindy's spell, and insightful, as in Ezekiel's (John Kim) line about not needing others to validate your worth, "And the Curse of Cindy" is a goofy episode full of some puzzling plot points (such as DOSA, their involvement and disappearance, and the entire missile subplot).

Ezekiel is given the chance to shine in "And the Curse of Cindy," although I have mixed feelings about the episode's final scene which seems to undercut a fair bit of logic concerning why the love potion didn't work in favor of a less interesting one. DOMA's involvement continues to be periphery here and their sudden disappearance after the spell is broken is confusing as you would expect they would at least stick around long enough to learn what was happening (and even more likely to try and capture the Librarians).
