SUPERNATURAL: Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki Preview Charlie’s Return and Taking on THE WIZARD OF OZ Characters in ‘Slumber Party’

October 18, 2013 by  

It’s SUPERNATURAL-meets-THE WIZARD OF OZ in the upcoming episode, “Slumber Party,” and thankfully, Sam and Dean won’t be on their own as they have to try and wrap their minds around it: they’ll have the help of Charlie (returning guest star Felicia Day)!

“This is also what kind of stuff that excites me,” SUPERNATURAL star Jared Padalecki (Sam) shared with reporters in the video below. “Like, these little fun little ways we can tie in real pop culture or real urban legends — kind of how the show started, tying in…existing urban legends into the lore of the show. [In 'Slumber Party'] we find out that Dorothy has been trapped in the Men of Letters bunker for a long, long, long time. And accidentally she is set free, but so is the witch…so now we have them running around our bunker, and we have to employ the help of the coolest computer nerd we know [Charlie] to help us try to figure out what happened.”

“Dean kind of tries to battle with the fact that there’s an actual Wizard of Oz, and there’s an actual Dorothy, and it’s all being unfolded in front of him,” Jensen Ackles (Dean) added later in the video.

Take a look at what else Padalecki and Ackles had to say about “Slumber Party,” the expansion of the Men of Letters bunker, and more…

    Every time I hear Charlies or Garth’s in an episode I think back to Jo, Ellen, Rufus and Ash and can’t help but wonder what happened to Supernatural and it’s backup characters.

    Lets be honest folks. the recent backup characters (outside of Benny) just don’t feel right.

    I used to think the same thing about backup characters until I recognized a theme in the current SPN. With the introduction of the MoL and Abaddon we saw the destruction of scholars leaving only hunters. The archangels needed John raised in ignorance of his true heritage but since the archangels have been defeated and imprisoned in the cage it is time for Team Free Will to embrace their legacy. Ideally this should include the book knowledge represented by Sam the researcher and the street knowledge represented by Dean the hunter. Yes I realize both brothers are hunters and researchers but from the beginning their strengths and interests were different. With their new awareness of their family history Sam no longer feels like such an outsider and Dean finally has the home John wanted for him.
