The Wicked Witch is coming to “Supernatural” season 9 … but so are Dorothy, Flying Monkeys, and the entire world of “The Wizard of Oz.” With next week being Halloween, it only seems appropriate that we have an episode that really emphasizes the strange and the silly, and we are going to see plenty of that over the course of “Slumber Party.”
Before we do anything else, let’s point out the obvious, in case you have not heard already: Felicia Day is back! Charlie makes her first appearance on the season next week, and she comes to help figure out a very wacky mystery that involves all of the classic characters. This is a one-off that won’t really have a whole lot to do with anything that you saw tonight on the excellent “I’m No Angel,” but it still looks like plenty of fun. Read the full synopsis for it below:
“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.”
One of the other benefits of next week’s episode is that with it taking place almost entirely in the new headquarters for the Winchesters, we’re going to get more of an opportunity to have a tour of the building. There are going to be some great stories that come out of the brothers having their own home base, mostly because it’s something that is both surprising and rather new for them. After all, these two have not really had a place in quite a long time to genuinely call their own home.
