Prospero and Moriarty's scheme is actually not to recover the staff but to replace it using wood from the Tree of Knowledge located in the heart of the Library. Baird and Carson are able to reach this location despite problems with the Library's security system and the interference of other fictional characters summoned into existence by Prospero. Carson destroys a tree that Prospero incorrectly believes to be the Tree of Knowledge, and Prospero flees, while Moriarty (under threat of being sent off a cliff by Baird) agrees to withdraw from the dispute. Jenkins confesses that the Library has systemic problems he cannot explain, including several artifacts that have disappeared. Carson leaves alone in search of these, while the reunited Librarians prepare to help Baird with the Library's work.

The word "Celtic" is mis-pronounced by Moriarty as "seltic" instead of "keltic". The former pronunciation refers only to the Scottish football club and the Boston basketball team. Only the latter refers to the ancient culture and language group. See more

Again? This is the third time this place has been attacked since I started working here. We need to have a serious talk about the so-called security.
