'The Magicians' Season 4, Episode 8: Will "Home Improvement" be Magical Tool Time?

Now that we've firmly established that the Library is the Big Bad on this season of SYFY's The Magicians, I predict we're about to see a lot of momentum and menace aimed at the Brakebills crew.

Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley) is right in the middle of the danger, since she's the reason the hedge witches were able to tap into a leak in a magical pipeline and blow up a satellite Library branch in Modesto. Alice is pretty desperate to help her new friend Sheila (Camryn Manheim), who went missing after some Librarians visited her house.

Speaking of Librarians, Zelda (Mageina Tovah) has come to Alice for help, since she may be the only person that can find Zelda's daughter, who is trapped in the Mirror Dimension. And the Mirror Dimension looks like a pretty hellish place to be lost, frankly!

Quintin (Jason Ralph) and Julia (Stella Maeve) may be over their heads with the Monster that has taken over Eliot's (Hale Appleman) body, since they inadvertently may be helping it re-build its original "indestructible god-body". The problem being, of course, that the Monster may not leave Eliot's body in one piece while they work.

Fen (Brittany Curran) is also hunting for clues surrounding her newly acquired precognitive powers, and is going on a quest to get to the bottom of those powers. Margo (Summer Bishil) may not be the best friend in the world sometimes, but when it comes to having someone's back, she's aces, so Fen should be in good shape!

(Margo continues to find new ways to "Jesus Christ", and it's just delicious writing. Thank you, SYFY!)

Oh, and Poppy's (Felicia Day) back! That's bound to be terrible news for Quintin, but entertaining for us!
