SUMMARY: Margo is just a mousy librarian working at
the research assistance desk, happy not to be noticed and with
no ambitions to move up to the front desk - despite scorn from
her overbearing supervisor, Eleanor. But one day, a
mysterious and rude man named Lancaster arrives. He tells
her that her job is obsolete, but Margo proves adept at telling
him where in the library to find the answer to any query.
He is testing her... and, after revealing that he knows far too
much about her, via an app on her phone that has assessed her as
having genius-level talents, he springs his final test on her:
setting two thugs on her. Time to kill or be killed.
Margo, to her own shock, manages to kill them both. As she
stands in the bloody carnage, shaking, Lancaster hires her as an
assassin, to be trained to be among the best killers in the
world, and unleashed upon the enemies who oppose all that is
right and good.
SUMMARY: Margo enters training for "The
Establishment," but it soon becomes
clear, to Lancaster's confusion, that Margo has no idea how to
fight. She has no clue how she defeated and dispatched
Lancaster's thugs when he recruited her at the library.
But eventually Lancaster deduces that Margo can only fight when
her life is actually threatened. He tells the other
recruits that the first to kill her will get $100,000... and
within moments, they're all dead by Margo's quivering and
confused hand, and Lancaster informs her that she's "graduated."
She still doesn't want to be a killer. She wants to build
libraries. But Lancaster tells her that with the money
she'll earn, she'll be able to build all the libraries she
wants. Margo doesn't trust him, but agrees to take the job
anyway, and Lancaster prepares to send her on her first
FEATURED SERIAL KILLERS' 1000th ACTOR
TO TAKE THE STAGE, EUGENE NOVA AS "MERCENARY"!
SUMMARY: Lancaster has Margo parachute into the
midst of a bunch of terrorists, knowing she'll be able to kill
them all once attacked. Lancaster tells his superiors that
he'll find a way to keep her on the job if she ever wants out.
Which she does. He finds that way when Margo falls for
Henry, a handsome and shy man who works for the Establishment as
a cleaner, cleaning up the dead bodies Margo leaves in her wake.
And the men Margo killed in the library the day Lancaster
recruited her were Henry's brothers. If she ever quits,
Lancaster will tell Henry who his brothers' killer is.
SUMMARY: Margo once again makes short work of a
group of terrorists, while Lancaster becomes convinced that
she's falling for him. He is rudely awakened when he finds
Margo and Henry passionately kissing while she assists him with
his "cleaning" duties. As Lancaster takes Margo aside to
once again threaten to tell Henry that she killed his brothers,
Henry is attacked by a terrorist... and Margo rescues him,
killing his attacker. It seems that Margo's skills are
activated not just by herself being in mortal danger, but in
anybody she cares about being in mortal danger. And so
Lancaster plans to use Henry as bait on Margo's next mission.
SUMMARY: Margo rescues Henry from a group of
terrorists, killing them all - and this isn't the first time.
Lancaster's been using Henry as bait for a while now.
Lancaster says he'll only stop when she realizes that only
killing when she or her loved ones are in danger is a crutch,
and she can use her murderous skills any time she wants.
Margo once again threatens to leave, and Lancaster confesses his
romantic interest in her... and once again threatens to reveal
that she killed Henry's brothers. She decides to chance
running from The Establishment. Lancaster sends out three
operatives - their next best killers after her - armed with
guns. He thinks there's no way she can outrun bullets...
but, with a single motion, she throws three daggers into their
throats, killing them instantly. She really IS that fast.
As she and Henry make their escape, pledging to be together
forever, a heartbroken Lancaster speaks on the phone with his
mysterious boss, telling him that he opened up his heart to her
and she still ran off with the cleaning guy. And now he's
going to kill her. The operatives may not have worked, but
he's got an idea: the only way to kill a librarian... is with
SUMMARY: Margo and Henry are hiding out in a small
town, trying to build a new life, and Margo is the librarian at
a small library. However, their new
neighbor, kindly Mrs. White, turns out to be a former librarian
- and killer - herself, and she's guessed Margo's secret.
Mrs. White has left that life far behind, but she has some
advice for Margo - including, never ever tell Henry her secret.
Things seem idyllic until Lancaster calls. He's found
them. As they get ready to go, Lancaster tricks her into
revealing her secret while Henry is listening. Henry,
heartbroken, breaks up with Margo and leaves. As Margo
prepares to leave as well, she is confronted by her old boss
Eleanor, who is also a librarian and assassin in Lancaster's
employ. She quickly overpowers Margo and stabs her,
twisting the knife. As Margo sinks to the ground, she reveals that her
deadly library clerks have captured Henry and rendered him
unconscious. Mrs. White
arrives and knocks out the clerks. Eleanor makes as if to
leave... and then whips around and deals the old lady a mortal
blow. The clerks revive and leave with Eleanor, the
unconscious Henry in tow, as Mrs. White dies in Margo's arms.
And to make matters worse, a detective bursts in, finds Margo
holding Mrs. White's body with a bloody knife in her hands, and
places her under arrest.
SUMMARY: Detective Crane finishes grilling Margo,
who the medics have patched up as best they could. He says he
believes her, but he's not in charge - his partner is. And
that partner... is Lancaster. Crane isn't a police detective;
he's part of The Establishment, and Crane simply wanted to meet
her. They have one more job for her: Eleanor has turned
traitor, and is training the Clerks as her own private army.
Margo accepts, but only because it's the only way to save Henry,
who Eleanor still has captive. After she leaves, Crane
muses that she can't win, and that no matter what happens, it
would seem to be the end of The Establishment. And in
short order, Crane realizes that it really is the end...
Lancaster has poisoned Crane's cofee, wrapping up loose ends as
The Establishment comes crashing down. Meanwhile, Margo
has a final, blistering confrontation with Eleanor, who was
about to kill Henry. Eleanor seems to have the upper
hand... but Margo turns the tables when she realizes that
Eleanor can't read. Eleanor, emotionally vulnerable, takes
a hit from Margo, but soon escapes to the roof, where she
threatens to throw Henry off. But Margo... offers to teach
Eleanor to read. She began the day as a killer, but would
really like to end it as a librarian. Eleanor, moved,
finally relents, and lets Henry go. Margo is good to her
word, and not only teaches Eleanor to read, but also trains
Eleanor's Clerks to be librarians. Henry is still feeling
betrayed from having learned that Margo killed his brothers, but
it looks like the two will eventually work it out. The
idyll is shattered when Margo gets a call from Lancaster... who
says he killed Henry ten minutes ago. Henry is drinking
poisoned coffee he got from a truck outside, and he collapses
and dies in Margo's arms. Lancaster appears, and tells
Margo that they can be together now. He thinks he's safe
because Margo's life isn't being threatened, but Margo throws a
knife into his throat and kills him... because she can.
Margo, devastated by the day's events, leaves, never to
return... but leaves the library she loved in the hands of the
Clerks. It's a place of love. Of hope. Of redemption. But
if anybody ever comes looking for trouble, the newly-minted
Librarians will be ready. All the best killers are
