The One With the Book Witch

00Ep. 85
TBOL ch 16Episode description: Chapter 16 offers us a much needed off-ramp to the familiar roads we are used to traveling on; books, libraries, labs. Miriam is there to gain control of the situation, and Gallowglass is present to lighten the mood of the situation in question. Diana is getting warmer as far as the missing page(s) trail, and Matthew is finding his feet in Chris Robert's lab. We meet a new friend, and we even had the opportunity to crash into the ditch a few times.
