Take a look below to see what Booth had to say about the supposedly stellar guest star that she thinks fans will love, the relationship status of Jake (Christian Kane) and Cassandra and, most importantly, her true feelings about cranky, old Jenkins (John Larroquette).
Zap2it: The show has grown such a strong fanbase. How has it been to hear their support and questions and excitement?
Lindy Booth: It’s been amazing. When we started shooting this show, we all knew what we were doing was pretty cool and pretty special, but you never know what is going to happen when you throw the baby into the wild and watch it grow. We’ve all been on Twitter — live-tweeting all of the episodes — and on social media tracking fans’ reactions. … And I love everyone’s take on it, I love everyone guessing what’s going to happen next, and whose identity [is whose] and who is putting who in what kind of relationship. It’s been really fun for all of to us to hear everyone’s theories on the show.
Have you heard a lot of people trying to ship Cassandra and Jake?
I have been shipped with everyone on the show. Sadly, no one is shipping me with Jenkins, which is what I’ve been shipping from day one. I think the Prince Charming [“The Fables of Doom”] episode threw everyone off, and now I’ve been shipped with everyone.
It’s obvious that Jake and Cassandra’s friendship still isn’t fixed because of what she did early on in the season, so do you think that’s going to work itself out?
All good relationships — all strong relationships — always have to overcome something, and this is Jake and Cassandra’s thing that they need to overcome. And I think it’s one of those things that you’ll be better for it on the other side and I think once these two get over this trust issue, they’ll be so locked together because they’ve overcome something together. I think it will bring them closer together, ultimately.
So do you think there will ever be something romantic between them?
You never know. I always think that romances come out of friendship, so I think right now it’s very much a friendship, but, we shall see, I suppose, what the writers have in store for us.
Is there anything you can tell fans about the finale?
The finale I can say is so fantastic, and yet again we’re going to see a different side of Cassandra, so that was incredibly fun for me to play. I can’t say much because no one lets us say anything, but I can say that we have yet another amazing guest star in our finale, and I think the fans will be excited. There’s the big spoiler — not only who the actor is, but the character who he is playing. I think fans are going to be pretty happy about it.
But here’s the biggest question: Are fans finally going to find out who Jenkins really is?
I think there are some theories out there that I’ve read that have come pretty close [to the truth], but we will definitely be getting to the main mythology of the show, and Jenkins is definitely a huge part of that.
If there’s a second season for “The Librarians,” what would you like to see the actual librarians go up against?
Our writers are so amazing, that I literally have no idea what they’re capable of. I would love to see the Librarians travel more. I love it when they end up in strange places and have to deal with strange people in boring cities when we’re totally all thrown out of our comfort zone. I’d like to maybe go to Australia and deal with some relics there and poor Ezekiel [John Kim] would have to show us around.
And, finally, say Cassandra had nothing to do one day — no magic fighting, so Santa helping — what would she spend the day doing?
Probably reorganizing her extensive wardrobe because she does seem to have an awful lot of clothes and she does seem to be very well-organized. I think she’s probably take some time to make sure that all of the stockings and socks match the right blouse and sweater and skirt.
“The Librarians” two-hour finale — “The City of Light” and “The Loom of Fate” — airs Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on TNT.
