I’m not going to throw out catchy phrases like, “We’re not in Kansas anymore” or any comments on Oz in general. Truth be told I thought in Oz storyline was an odd addition and was actually happy that it appeared that Charlie’s story was over. I felt her story was becoming a little forced, but after this episode I take it all back. Charlie was back and brought with her all the things I loved about her in the beginning– plus some.
Here are the most truthful, beautiful moments of this episode:
Dark Charlie — I thought Dark Charlie was perfect. Yeah she was a crazy psycho who like to kill, but the boys kinda are too and I love them too. Dark Charlie and Mark Of Cain Dean were pretty much made for each other. It made me pretty nervous when they were somewhat hanging out together. I was afraid that he was going to accept his dark side and run off with her (not romantically– but I like to kill people too kinda way). They somewhat surprised me by actually needing the key to fix her. I kinda expected the good and bad Charlies to combine after good Charlie killed someone. Even though it was a good act– killing is still damaging to the soul.
There were some awesome one liners — Wouldn’t hurt a Hobbit. Should have known Rocket and Groot would track me down. I even got my own little sword. Blah, blah, blah repressed feelings, blah, blah blah passive aggression.
Let’s just say the writers were golden this time around.
For Dean, the struggle is real— seriously he almost loses it numerous times. With the DA that Charlie has tortured, with the shot in the bar, when he was fighting outside with Dark Charlie. I’m over him being evil so I was so proud of Dean for holding it together. I’m happy that it looks like they are actually working together to find a solution to their problems. I think seeing Dark Charlie actually helped Dean realize how much it hurts others when someone you love is out of control. I’m also glad that it looks like Charlie will be hanging around trying to help. Maybe now they’ll be able to get somewhere with Charlie, Cas, Dean AND Sam all looking for the fix.
Dean on a diet is just like me on a diet— I have friends that drink protein shakes and haven’t looked at a burger and a coke in years. Well I’m proud of them, but any time I’m eating healthy food I’m just thinking about how good a bbq bacon cheeseburger with a large Dr. Pepper would be. Cause delicious is what it is. I know in real life Jensen Ackles is probably on a strict diet and exercise regime, but I love that fictional Dean struggles like anyone else. You can tell me that kale is delicious– but I’m sorry– it smells like a fart.
Charlie stealing Baby was a thing of beauty— If there is anything that would push Dean to the edge it’s someone messing with his car. So of course that’s what she did. Of course.
So now we get to wait until we see what goodness the rest of the season will bring. And it looks like Charlie will be right there helping them.
