The Librarians and the Image of Image

After witnessing a bizarre magical event involving showing all the signs of being hit by a car without the accident occurring and connecting a group of others all involving victims facing consequences for someone else's excesses and mistakes, Eve (Rebecca Romijn), Cassandra (Lindy Booth), Ezekiel (John Harlan Kim) and Stone (Christian Kane) check out a nearby dance club which seems to be the epicenter for the calamity. "And the Image of Image" casts Luke Cook as an updated version of Dorian Gray who has left his painting in the past and moved on to 21st Century technology to keep his youthful looks and lifestyle at the cost of his ever-growing list of victims.

The unfortunately-titled episode is memorable more for its comedic moments (such as Stone's inability to make it into the club and Cassandra's drunken ramblings) than its actual story. Although powerful, Gray isn't that interesting a character. The episode takes a few potshots at social media along the way, however the script also relies on the Librarians' use of the very same technology to fight back. Eventually the Librarians find a way to uses Gray's collection of selfies against him and keep the world safe from a magic for at least another week.
