Slumber Party Review

Here is my review of Supernatural season 9, episode 4, Slumber Party.

Any character in that appears in more than one episode is bound to die eventually. Tonight was Charlie's turn. Thankfully, the writers were kind enough not to kill her off halfway through an episode and had Zeke bring her back. She seems to be an important enough character not to receive a permanent death, but then again, Bobby and Meg both got killed off eventually. In the end, I think every character in this show will die permanently sooner or later (unless they choose to go happy-ending for the series finale).

I'm glad we got to see more of the bunker in this episode. Sam and Dean apparently still haven't fully explored it yet, which would indicate that either they don't have the time or there are too many twisting passages to explore fully (like the TARDIS). I know Sam and Dean don't have the resources for this, but it'd be interesting to see what the systems there could do with modern server technology. There's something to be said for old-but-reliable, but with modern technology, they might just be able to track not just angels, but every other supernatural being on Earth. The bunker could just be the key to giving humans the edge once and for all.

I hope we get to see more of Dorothy in the future. I'm always keen to have more badass female hunters on this show. She and Charlie will probably return later in the season after they've finished cleaning up Oz. By that time, Charlie should have fully versed her in the 21st century. They could totally end up being tag-team female hunters together in season 10. I also wouldn't mind a lesbian thing.
