Recap: Supernatural, Episode 7.20 – The Girl with the Dungeons and Dragons Tattoo

So, we skip to five hours prior and meet our heroine, Charlie. I have to say, I adore Felicia Day. She is just made of win. And I love how fresh Charlie was. She fit all stereotypes and none at the same time. A computer something-or-other working at Richard Roman Enterprises, Charlie shows up for her work day, dressed casual, with her cross-body shoulder bag and her iPod playing “Walking On Sunshine.” She breezes past security, gets in the elevator, glances around to see if anyone’s looking (it’s a glass elevator) and breaks out dancing in what can only be described as Willard-esque (and if you get that reference, 10 points for Griffindor).

She sits down at her superhero-adorned desk and shares pics of her ‘hook-up’ at a reproductive seminar (I think) with her cube-mate co-worker while simultaneously sending company funds into an animal donation fund (I think…again). It all happened really fast, but the gist is, she hacks for the good of the underprivileged and she is having a good week…so far. Just then her boss (looking Totally Freaked Out) calls her into his office and Charlie’s (slightly adorable) co-worker gives her a worried look saying, “I love you.” Charlie responds with a wry, “I know,” before she heads to the bosses office. HA! Nice little Star Wars shout-out there. *grins*

She heads unconcerned into the bosses office…only to come face-to-face with Dick Roman and his eyeroll-worthy double-entente’s that really only mean something sinister to those of us who know he’s a monster who eats humans and make him sound simply pompous to everyone not in on the joke. He hands her Frank’s hard drive and wants her to hack it — he’s utterly unconcerned about her hacking into the company funds for donations to adopt-a-pet or whatever. Thinks that is adorable. He wants to know why she’s so hard to copy.

Charlie tells him that she has a problem with authority, so to get away with being her, she makes herself indispensable. I like it. Unfortunately, so does Dick.

Dick: You’re kinda completing me right now, Charlie.

Charlie & Me: Um, eww.

He tells Charlie she has three days to hack into Frank’s hard drive or she’s fired (and by fired, we all know he means eaten) and then leaves. She looks at her Totally Freaked Out Boss and asks, “Is this real life?” He’s basically like, why are you still sitting here? Go!

Heading out to her cube, she runs into Cube Mate Guy and tells him that Dick Roman just gave her an assignment, which means that, “The Eye of Sauron is on me.”

Cube Mate Guy: If you need anything, I’ll be back in the Shire.

Hee. I would totally get along with these guys. It’s…kinda scary.

Charlie sits at her desk, then looks at her figurine of Hermione Granger for a brief pep talk before starting to hack into the hard drive. Aaaaannnnddd….go!

Aside? In the Orlando airport, there’s a Harry Potter store. And Mo Chuisle saw it.  Now, I’ve only let her see up to the 3rd movie and we’re currently reading book three, but she’s totally hooked. I just have to wait until she getsa little older before I introduce Dementors because…well…nightmares. But she and I saw that store at the same time and the hubs was basically like, “Ach, I’ve lost them.” We headed inside and squeed over the clothes and candy but then…she saw the wands. And whose do you think we walked out of there with? Yep – Hermione’s. And Mo Chuisle spent the whole first night at Disney casting spells around the hotel room.

Anyway, Charlie’s busy hacking away when suddenly the computer greets her as Professor Falken and asks if she would “like to play a nice game of chess.” LOVE IT! War Games. HA! She thinks she found her way in when she gets a “Nice try, Zero Charisma.” *laugh* I was doing a lot of chuckling through this part.

Back with the boys, they’re planning the Winchester equivalent of the Trench Run to get to the hard drive and Bobby wants to go into Dick’s office, but the boys are like, um, yeah, no. Not a good idea. Sam’s the one who vocalizes their worry that he’ll go vengeful spirit on them, though by Dean’s expression, he totally agrees. They make Bobby “ride the pine” and He. Is. Not. Happy.
