Good episode! Not a correction but rather an additional thought from me: the Librarian is not only hated by (some of) his brothers, he is also feared (especially the Blood Angels librarians who are prone to killing with one carelessly angry thought) and respected. One should not forget that in the TT, the Librarian is an HQ selection. If it wasn't for Deathwatch regulations of electing a team leader, the Librarian would be the natural default choice by virtue of rank. This gets reflected in the Librarian's description in the Core Rulebook where it says that the DW Librarians are nominally not attached to a specific kill-team but are part of the Watch Commander's officer cadre instead.
So these mixed emotions can make for a much more nuanced roleplay regarding the use of
mutant psyker scum esteemed Librarian Battle-Brothers.
