The Librarians s02e01
Titre original : Just Returned
Frances O'Brien, devout Catholic and panic disorder sufferer, is back at the Middleton Interactive Learning Centre. But being head librarian of this outer suburban library is harder than ever — especially when her right to the throne is being threatened by her Muslim colleague Nada — touted as the N.B.L (Next Big Librarian).
Frances can't seem to get anybody's attention. Ky is in love, Dawn is broken hearted and Matthew is exploring his sexuality. Neil, the convicted thief, is back — a free citizen and proudly wielding a Middleton library card. Father Harris is on sabbatical — Frances is at sea.
Life at home isn't any better. Terry is masturbating more frequently and their daughters are wilder than ever. Frances tries valiantly to ignore her responsibilities as a mother — in fact, not even think about motherhood, which is a little difficult when Christine is seven months pregnant and again working as the Children's Librarian.
Single and dreading being a parent, Christine still manages to make pregnancy glamorous and Frances is constantly reminded of her own deeply unattractive pregnancies — and how they bore her wayward daughters. It all leaves Frances breathing harder into her paper bag than ever as she wrestles with being a mother, a lover and a librarian.
