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

So, the boys watch Charlie on the monitor, poised to shift to the camera feed loop when she gets out of the elevator on 4 (where she’s supposed to go) then gets back in to go to 11 (where Dick’s office is). Bobby’s riding the elevator with her (of course). She gets off by Dick’s office, only there’s a big ass guard blocking the way, sitting down to read the paper.

Dean takes the phone from Sam and tells her she’s going to have to flirt her way through. She’s like, he’s not my type. Dean tells her to play through it. Only the thing is…not her type? Means he’s not a girl.

Dean: Oh. Oh. Pretend he has boobs.

I love how smooth and seamless his transition was there. Not even a stumble.

She says that makes it worse and Dean scrambles, thinking, then asks her if she has any tattoos. Give him a sneak peak. All tat’s are sexy. As someone with three, I agree.

Charlie: Mine is Princess Leia in the slave bikini straddling a 20-sided die.

Dean and Sam exchange A Look. I really like this girl. *laugh*

Charlie: I was drunk! It was ComiCon.

Dean: We’ve all been there.

Ha! Love it. So, they go to the split screen so we can see Dean’s (OMG, seriously, shouldn’t be legal) profile and Charlie working through what Dean’s telling her. He says he’ll walk her through it and his words propel her forward. The way he says those words would propel me forward, I can tell you that much.

Dean: Start with a smile. Relax. You just got home and Scarlett Johansen is waiting for you.

I love Dean Winchester. The man is velvety-smooth.

Charlie exchanges small talk with the guard about going to the gym, Dean feeding her lines through the BluTooth earpiece.

Guard: I’m trying to get back down to my fighting weight.

Dean/Charlie: It shows. You look amazing.

Sam is barely suppressing a grin. Dean pulls the phone down and shoots him a glare, hissing, This never happened. HA!

Dean/Charlie: You do anything else with your free time? Like take a girl out for a drink? Stop laughing, Sammy.

Whoops! Although, love that he said ‘Sammy’…that made me grin.

Charlie (quickly recovering): You don’t know that bar? Stop Laughing, Sammy?

After a few more (hilarious) flubs, she plays with her hair and manages to get the guard to agree to a drink, then let her past to use the ladies room to powder her nose. As she moves down the hall, she whispers, “I feel dirty.”

Dean: You and me both, sister.

She heads into the office and the boys are left to just wait. Using gloves (good girl!) she does her thing, downloading the email on her jump drive, but then the security guard gets suspicious. Bobby tries to “Yoda this” thing (ha!) and locks the door, buying Charlie some time, but the guard gets in. Charlie pretends as though she’s coming out of Roman’s bathroom, plays off the mixed up direction and writes her phone number (or a phone number) on the guard’s hand before snagging the jump drive and heading out of the office to her cube.

Back in the van, Dean is anxious x 10 as he waits for Charlie to contact them.

Dean (tense sarcasm dripping from his words): This is awesome. Y’know what? New plan. Let’s just stay in the van and send the 90 pound girl in.

Sam (who is making Borax bombs – and really? it’s about time…I think someone on the ramble brought up Super Soakers about 10 episodes ago…why aren’t they loading guns of some kind with Borax?) says she’ll be okay…or they will go in and get as far as they can.

It makes me feel both proud and sad that they’re willing to wade into this Leviathan mess as far as they can, knowing they probably wouldn’t get out of it. The first time I saw the hubs tear up in a movie, it was BlackHawk Down. Two Marines willingly went into the war zone to protect the pilot of one of the downed choppers, fully aware they wouldn’t make it out alive, but also knowing they were the only chance their wounded comrade had. That’s the feeling I got with Dean’s we’ll get as far as we can statement.

Charlie gets to her computer and sends the files to the boys, Dean’s face showing his relief at hearing her voice. Charlie’s “monster boss” (she can tell he’s not himself by the way he’s not acting Totally Freaked Out) checks on her and instead of heeding Dean’s advice and getting out of there, she stays to “get this over with.”

They find out that Dick stopped digging because he (apparently) found what he was looking for – something was being shipped in a case to him from Iran. My mind immediately went to Sunday school. Iran = Mesopotamia, Fertile Crescent, Garden of Eden, something Biblical….

A courier was set to pick it up in 42 minutes. Dean says that he needs one more thing from Charlie and then she can go…next thing we know, she’s standing up but Dick Roman is right behind her desk. *gulp*
