It happens tonight...
In an interview with Zap2It, Felicia Day spoke about tonight's episode "Slumber Party", which sees the return of Charlie Bradbury and the Winchesters dealing with Dorothy of Oz (yes, that Oz) and the Wicked Witch. Here are highlights:
On what Charlie has been up to since her last appearance: "Since the last time we saw her I think she's grown a lot. Obviously that was a really traumatic situation for her but in a strange way it was closure. With her mom passing away, saying goodbye to her, there is a sense of moving on. Also, she revealed her past to Sam and Dean in a way that she's never revealed to anyone else, so there is a sense of belonging and comfort with the guys. The new direction that Charlie is on is becoming a hunter. We haven't seen her but she's definitely been active and trying to grow what she knows about the lore and the world and exploring doing things on her own. That's where Charlie's at and she is thrilled to be able to help the guys out with this thing that they find at the bunker."
On Supernatural's take on Oz: "I loved it. When I first got the script I was thrilled beyond compare because this is exactly up my alley. Not only do I love the Wizard of Oz but I just love taking a world that's familiar and re-envisioning it. And the same writers who write all of Charlie's episodes have such an imagination, so it's always exciting to get called up and asked to do an episode. This one is so different -- it has a great sense of humor about it, it has a sense of wonder and fantasy, but it also has some really emotional things, so being able to put all of those aspects together is not easy. I think they did an amazing job with the episode."
On what she's excited for in the episode: "There's definitely an interesting moment that happens halfway through the episode that I think will get a strong reaction. And then at the end of the episode, the very end, there is actually a very interesting choice that Charlie has to make. I'm really interested to see how Charlie reacts to that and I think that people are going to have really strong opinions about it, too."
