S2E20 Victorias Gift 192

Victoria, full of the spirit of the season, has a special gift for her “uncle”, The Librarian. While Christmas Eve is the anniversary of a very traumatic event for The Librarian, Victoria is confident that a special gift she’s had made by her friend, Nicola Tesla, will delight her uncle.

What happens when two very different forces are brought together in one place? Strap in for a dark ride in this year’s season finale of The Lift, an epic crossover with The Wicked Library’s agent of chaos, and a touching holiday tale.
