Supernatural RECAP 10/29/13: Season 9 Episode 4 “Slumber Party”

SUPERNATURAL continues on the CW tonight with a new episode called, “Slumber Party.”  On tonight’s episode Sam and Dean try to get an ancient computer on.  Did you watch last week’s season 9 premiere?  We did and we recapped it right here for you.

On last week’s show Ezekiel told Dean (Jensen Ackles) a group of angels was hunting Castiel (Misha Collins). Dean and Sam (Jared Padalecki) raced to find their friend before the angels did. Meanwhile, a homeless Castiel was trying to make his way through the city and comes across some unexpected surprises.

On tonight’s show Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) discover that the table in the Men of Letters house (the one that lit up like a Christmas Tree when the angels fell), has an ancient computer attached to it. They figure if they can get the computer on, they can track the angels.

Who better to call for help than the best IT girl there is, Charlie (guest star Felicia Day)? While moving the massive computer, they dislodge a hidden hexbag that unleashes a magical green-webbed wall. Sam and Dean break through it and discover the one and only Dorothy (guest star Tiio Horn) from Oz.

She had trapped herself and the wicked witch (guest star Maya Massar) in the web years ago to stop the witch from finding the key that would open the gate that connected their world with Oz. With the wall broken, a massive and magical fight ensues that threatens to destroy the Men of Letters house. Robert Singer directed the episode written by Robbie Thompson.

Tonight’s episode looks like it is going to be great and you won’t want to miss it, so be sure to tune in for our live coverage of CW’s Supernatural at 9:00 PM EST! While you wait for our recap hit the comments and let us know what you thought of last week’s episode?

 Tonight’s episode begins now – Refresh Page for Updates

We see a black and white intro of two men entering a secret facility via a key kept in a pentagram box. They unlock briefcases chained to their arms. They are Haggerty and James. They turn on the lights and one says the place is a dump. The other says “the dump” is the epicenter of the ultimate chess match of good versus evil. Six months later the two are playing actual chess and the optimistic one now agrees that the place is a dump.

The phone rings. It has a pentagram on it! The older of the two answers it but doesn’t accept the bad password given. He tells the other that there is a Hunter coming – Frank’s kid. There’s the sound of scraping and banging and we see a woman come in – Dorothy – dragging a parcel she says contains the Wicked Witch!

Now, Crowley greets Sam who gives him a paper to list more demon names. Crowley tells him he wants a room with a view and Sam walks out as C yells that he’d settle for stretching his legs. Dean comes in and asks how Kevin is and he says he’s got him tucked away safely for a mental break. Dean tells him that they need a break too and says he brought Sam Season One of Game of Thrones. Sam says he thinks he knows how to help Kas.

Dean says he’s all ears and Sam says when the angels fell the table lit up and Sam says maybe they can hotwire the table to be an angel LoJack of sorts. Dean asks how it would work and Sam has no idea. He says he traced the cables to try and figure it out and that Dean will never believe what he found. He takes him into a room and shows him a computer from the 1950s. Sam says it’s not plugged in anywhere but is still operational.

Dean pries the case open and finds a flagon of sorts. They look at the insides of the computer and have no clue what they’re looking at and rue the fact that there is no manual and no tech support for this kind of thing. Dean says he may know someone who can help and they leave. The flagon loses its lid and starts to spew blue fluid that climbs the wall and gets all viny and funky.

Flashback to the two guys trying to interrogate the Wicked Witch. Dorothy tells them that she cut out the witches’ tongue but she can’t figure out how to kill her. She asks if they have a way to kill someone from Oz because she’s tried ending the witch in a variety of ways.

Sam escorts Charlie into the lair. She tells them it worked out great because she got fired last week. Turns out the company she worked for was outsourcing child labor and she Wikileaked them. She tells them she’s been keeping busy LARPing and doing a little hunting. She tells them it was intense but that Hunting isn’t magical enough for her tastes.

She asks them to show her to the computer. She says its belongs in a museum and that it has an alarm that goes off when global badness is going on. Sam asks if it can be used to track angels and she says she’ll see what she can do. Charlie gets busy tinkering with the derelict computer powered by magic. She plugs a surface tablet in and says it’s all ready.

Sam asks again about her Hunting activities. They aren’t happy she’s been doing it and she says she knows the Supernatural books said to not do it alone. They ask how she found the books that allow her to learn to hunt and she says she’s been getting them on Amazon. Ha! Those are all the books that are written on the show about Dean and Sam’s adventures (BTWs there are also actual books on Amazon based on this series!)

She tells them that someone even uploaded the unpublished books to the net and she says it was uploaded by Becky Winchester. They pretend they don’t know that’s their biggest fan.

Charlie says it will take time to decrypt the files and suggests they get takeout and braid each other’s hair. They watch Game of Thrones and one says Joffrey is a dick and she says wait until… Sam stops her and says Spoiler Alert! He says he hasn’t read all the books yet and Dean acts shock that he reads.

Charlie complains the bed is too hard and asks if they’re going to move in. Sam says it’s just a place they work and Dean says it’s home and they should treat it like it is. Dean goes to get them more beer and Sam asks Charlie why she says hunting doesn’t feel magical.

Charlie says she grew up on Tolkien. She holds up the Game of Thrones disc and asks where the quest is and the volcano to throw the ring in. Sam tells her that quests suck.

Flashback to the two guys discussing they can’t find a way to kill the witch. She gets loose and enchants Jenkins who demands she be taken to the thing they have that she own. The other guy stabs Jenkins and he comes back to himself long enough to tell him there’s nothing worse than adventure. Then he dies. The other dude runs after Dorothy.

Now, the crew comes back into the computer room and notice something is amiss. They pull aside the shelves and see what looks like a shell that grew from the blue goo. Dean peels it open and sees an arm inside. He cracks it open more and a body falls out and wakes up. It’s Dorothy!

Charlie finds a report on the old Dorothy case and says that the first case that took place there was the Dorothy case. She’s amazed that Oz is real and is part of the fairy world. Dorothy tells them they have to find the witch rather than talk. She tells them they are dumb Men of Letters that like to talk while their secretary takes notes. Charlie is offended and says she’s not a secretary and Dorothy asks if she’s a Woman of Letters and how long she’s been out. Sam tells her she’s been out for more than 75 years!

Dean tells her they’re hunters. Sam says their files say she disappeared. Dorothy said they couldn’t kill her so she did the only thing she could.

We see a flashback to her cutting her hand and bleeding it into a jar and telling the witch – it’s you and me forever bitch. Their souls were frozen in the jar the guys knocked over. She tells the brothers that if she’s awake then so is the witch.

Just then we see the Wicked Witch come into Crowley’s room. She can’t cross the ward line. He tells her he likes her work and tells her to write down what she needs so he can help since she can’t talk. They asks why the witch didn’t kill Dorothy and she’s protected by a kiss from the Witch of the North. They tell Charlie to try and find a way to deal with the witch and for Dorothy to rest up and help the smartest person in the room. Charlie smiles. Dorothy chafes and Charlie tells her she was much nicer in the books.

Turns out her dad was Frank Baum and Charlie tells her that the two brothers she dismissed are wicked smart. Charlie’s idea is to make up some poppy bullets from poppies harvested in Oz.

Crowley sits whistling Over the Rainbow when the brothers come in. He tells them their new guest is misunderstood and asks if they saw Wicked. Crowley tells them he knows what she wants but won’t tell them until he gets to stretch his legs. Sam wants to douse him in holy oil and set him alight.

Dean unlocks the demon king of hell and he stands up to stretch. Sam asks what she wants and Crowley says to let him air out for a moment. Dean shoots him and says he’s aired at out enough. He shows them the note the witch left that simply says “Key.” He tells them he told her to go look in the kitchen.

The brothers come in to find the kitchen trashed. Charlie and Dorothy come in and she tells them they have 4 bullets of poppy that will stun the hell out of the witch. They tell her the witch is looking for a key. Dorothy says it’s a key that will turn any door into a portal of Oz. She says if she gets the key the witch will destroy all that’s good in Oz. The brothers ask what it looks like and she shows them a drawing in a book. Dean says he’s seen it and the key is in his room.

Dean tells her to go to the dungeon to hide out and stay safe. Charlie says she’s not missing out on a quest with a wicked witch. She’s thrilled.

Dorothy tells Sam she can’t believe she’s been in that place for 75 years. She says she prefers the open road. She sees the witch behind Sam and shoots her. The witch screams and poofs into red smoke and enters the air vent. They split up to try and chase her.

Green smoke pours out of the vents into Dean’s room just as he finds the key. The witch grabs the key and strikes Charlie down. Dean shoots her and she poofs into smoke and heads into the vents again. Dean calls her name but Charlie seems to be completely out.

Dean picks up Charlie and puts her on the bed. Sam comes in and Dean calls for Zeke. He tells him that Charlie is gone and he can’t bring her back without weakening himself too much which will leave him in Sam’s body longer. He says he can either help defeat the witch or save Charlie. Dean asks him to save Charlie and he does. She jerks awake and says – Merry Christmas. Dean tells her he told her to stay in the dungeon. Sam comes to and he says that the witch knocked out Sam and Charlie but got away.

Charlie wants to go hunting but Dean tries to stop her. Dorothy tells the witch is wounded and they may still have time. The brothers head out with the last poppy bullet. Sam asks who Zeke is said he heard Dean call that name when he came in.

Charlie tells Dorothy says that she had a weird dream about Christmas. D tells her that she died and came back. She says that heaven is your perfect dream. She tells her that the witch killed her once too in Oz. She says that as a child she was always tagging along with her dad and accidentally got left behind in the Emerald City. She says some freedom fighters thought she was a miracle kid. She says the fighters were turned into – Charlie finishes by saying a scarecrow, lion and tin man. She says that after that the witch hunted her down and killed her. Charlie says that wasn’t in the books. D says real life is darker than fiction.

Dean asks why Sam hasn’t move in. Sam says he has no memories of their childhood home and that any time he’s tried to make a home it’s turned out badly. Dean says this is the closest they are going to get.

D says her dad’s happy ending books were his ways of denying the truth. Charlie says her dad’s books were actually guide books. D says Charlie’s a genius and they have to get to the garage. Charlie is stunned there’s a garage there.

The brothers are hunting the witch and she grabs Sam and zaps him and then zaps Dean. They are possessed and are ready to hunt down and kill the girls!

In the garage, D finds the head of the tin man (he didn’t make it…) and then what she’s looking for – the ruby slippers. She says the shoes have sharp magic from Oz. The boys turn up speaking low and eyes glowing green. Charlie asks if that’s Dean’s Batman voice. Dorothy says the witch is possessing them both. Charlie tells them to fight it. Dean has Charlie cornered and Sam has Dorothy cornered.

Elsewhere the witch is mixing up a potion of sorts that’s all fiery. She then uses the key to open the door and we see Oz. She laughs maniacally (if silently).

Charlie tells Dean sorry about the nards and them kicks him in the crotch. D tells Charlie to go and that she’ll buy them some time and throws her the ruby shoes. She’s ready to take on the boys.

The witch has her crazy brew boiling and we see the flying monkeys circling.

Sam grabs hold of Dorothy and chokes her.

The witches eyes glow green and then go out as Charlie stabs her with one shoe and then the other. She slams the door to Oz closed just as a flying monkey tries to crash its way in. She reopens the door and sees just an empty room. All is well.

The witch is just a pile of empty robes and two shoes. Charlie snags the key and comes to show it to the boys and Dorothy. She says ding dong the witch is…

Crowley is rechained and locked back down as he protests. He says that after all he did – that’s what he gets. Sam gives him a pen and paper and leaves.

In the garage, Sam tells Dorothy he found something in the archives that belongs to her. He hands her the Wizard of Oz book and she says he has no idea how weird it is to have a book written about them and he says he actually does know.

Charlie thanks Dean for bringing her back from the dead. She asks if she’s a zombie now and he says no. He tells her to keep it between them for now and she says he has to explain it later.

Dorothy asks them to keep an eye on her bike for her. She tells the boys she has a rebellion to finish and invites Charlie along. Dean says there are flying monkeys and all kinds of danger. Charlie says – promise?

She hugs Dean and Sam and tells them to take care of themselves. She and Dorothy head into Oz – courtesy of the magic key – and go to do battle. Charlie smiles as she steps onto the yellow brick road. For those about to rock is playing! Cool!

The boys close the doors and then reopen them and Oz is gone. Dean asks if they’ll be back and Sam says – of course, there’s no place like home!
