Episode 4:

Train yard. Jarvis paying some thugs. 3 guys outside as guards. Jarvis is told to give more money. A smuggler deal.

A guard checks out a rail car. Peggy knocks him out. The other 2 come investigating and she takes them out, too. All in a dress.

Jarvis says he doesn't agree to extortion. They insist. So he presses a button on the briefcase. They open it and a gas takes out one. Peggy knocks out the other.

Their package is Howard Stark! He asks how they're getting along. Peggy asks why he came. He says he'll explain at the house. She spots 2 agents and tells Jarvis to take a left. He asks where can I hide? She says take a right up ahead. They stop at The Griffith.

Peggy sneaks him in the building. She tells him to get in the dumbwaiter. Miriam finds Peggy. The hours you keep worry me. Do you know how many men I've caught in that dumbwaiter? She insists on walking Peggy to her room.

Chief and Thompson at the office. They don't know where the signals go from the typewriter. Chief wants to go to Germany. Nobody wants to talk about what really happened in Finhau. He leaves Thompson in charge.

Miriam and Peggy. Miriam says young women do not know how to govern their own impulses. Your laundry? Peggy gets a sack from the dumbwaiter. No Howard. Miriam leaves her. Howard is in another girl's room already. 3B. He has lipstick all over his face.

Howard wants to order room service. She says there is none. And he's bound for Rio in 3 days. How many of my devices have you recovered? She asks why not have Jarvis ask me. Howard has a pen camera. Heh.

Thompson calls a meeting. Says he's in charge and none of you will be resting. Form a single file to my office to get your assignments. Sousa and Peggy talk. He wants to check out the public phone. Peggy is told to get lunch orders.

She visits the lab. And starts taking photos with the pen. The scientist says Howard Stark is either an ignoramus or a genius. She says most likely both.

Sousa at the dock. Chats with a couple guys. Homeless guys. Did you see anything? One says he wasn't there. The other, Frank, gets arrested.

Mr. Mink is not happy with his goons. Kills them with a rotating barrel pistol. The actual model would be a muzzle-loader. A bit of TV magic on this one.

Peggy returns home. No Howard. He's in a different room with a different girl. Peggy says he's disgusting.

Sousa brings Frank in. Tells Thompson the man may have seen something. The agents mock him.

Peggy and Howard look at the negative. Angie's knocking. Howard tells her she should go. But bring back some food.

Sousa talks to Frank. I walk into a diner and everyone starts clapping. For me in my dress uniform. And then another GI walks in. And no one claps. They clapped for my leg and my crutch. Clapping because I make them feel guilty. We're both people nobody cares about. Frank says no one clapped for me. We all got sad stories, but I still don't talk to cops, even pathetic ones. Sousa leaves the room. Thompson listened. Sousa says the guy would say so if he didn't see something, so he saw something.

Angie and Peggy. The girls sneak food from the dining hall. Peggy goes back to her room. Howard says I need you to steal one of my inventions from your lab.

Every invention can cause large scale destruction. The Blitzkrieg Button will cut out all the power and the lights won't come back on. The grid gets destroyed. Howard says he's the only one that can deactivate it. He tells Peggy to not let anyone touch that device. Hands her a mock-up to swap.

She meets up with Jarvis.

Thompson comes in on Sousa's interrogation with food and booze. Eating and drinking in front of Frank. Sousa tells him he should leave. Thompson says this is yours if you tell us what you know. Frank says a fancy guy and a woman got off the boat. That's all....he hid when the cops came.

Nuremburg Prison - Chief meets with the Nazi. Do you know these men? They're Russians said to have died in Finhau. Tell me what happened at that battle and I'll help you escape.

Peggy and Jarvis. Jarvis is nervous. She says you don't think Howard would use it, do you? Of course not. A car is following them.

Chief and the Nazi. Chief offers him cyanide. Now tell me about the Battle. There was no battle. No German fought a Russian there. We found a massacre. Whoever attacked them was long gone. Chief doubts the story. Nazi insists. Chief gives him a pill. He leaves and offers the guard a breath mint. Ha!

Thompson tells Sousa he did good today.

Peggy sneaks into the lab and does the swap. Leaves the lab. She looks at the device. Uses the switch and opens it. There's a vial inside of blood?? She goes in a room and....runs into Thompson. He says only the men had to stay late. He asks why she works here. He says you're hiding something. And no man will ever consider you an equal. It's how the universe works. She says she can always rely on him to tell the truth. Goodnight.

Peggy goes home and asks Howard what's in the vial. Okay, you're angry. She says she's curious. He says you know, we both know. She says I don't. Tell me. He says Steve Roger's blood. She punches him.

Mr. Mink followed her home. He enters the lobby. Brought flowers. For Peggy. Miriam says he can't deliver them. Are you the delivery man or suitor? He says he loves her. Then leaves.

Peggy and Howard argue. She's angry. He says I grew up on the Lower East Side. You don't climb without learning some bad habits. My natural instinct is to lie, and I'm sorry, I shouldn't have lied to you. 1 vial went to Howard. The gov't has 11. He thinks Captain America's blood holds the key to saving millions of people. She accuses him of only looking for profit. Steve Rogers dedicated his life to this country. So thank you for reminding me who he was and what I aspire to be.

Mr. Mink went through the ventilation shaft. He's on the 3rd floor. Dotty kills him and takes his pistol! Oh damn!

Peggy is joined on the street by Jarvis. She tells him he's a bad liar. He says he and Howard respect her. She isn't interested. Jarvis isn't happy with Howard. Stan Lee borrows the sports section of the paper from him.

Sousa colors the photo of the woman to darken her hair.

Chief returns. He tells Thompson what the Nazi said. Thompson shows him a record of Howard on a plane. Chief says we got ourselves a conspiracy.

Peggy returns home and turns the radio on loud.

Dotty in 3F. Mink is under her bed. She's very happy to have his pistol.

Peggy pounds a hole in her wall to hide the vial.

Chief sees the typewriter activate.

Next ep - Peggy gets a mission to Russia. With the Howling Commandos.

#Supernatural Recap Episode 11 - There's No Place Like Home

Episode 11: "There's No Place Like Home"


CHARLIE RETURNS FROM OZ — Sam (Jared Padalecki) is scanning the internet for suspicious paranormal activity and comes across a video of Charlie (guest star Felicia Day) beating up a district attorney. Dean (Jensen Ackles) suspects she’s back from Oz and hunting on her own, assuming the district attorney must have been a demon. When they do find Charlie, they are shocked when she tells them why she really came back from Oz. Phil Sgriccia directed this episode written by Robbie Thompson.

Ep 11 recap:

A house. Screaming. A man runs from someone throwing things at him. His wrists are bound. He gets outside, nose bleeding. Stands. Begs...says he doesn't know anything else. But Charlie's going to torture him anyway.

Sam on the phone with Cas. Dean made egg white omelets and slept past 7. 8 hours of sleep, no drinking in a week, and healthy food. More research time. Dean hates the taste of all the health food. Sam finds video of Charlie attacking the guy. Dean tries calling her. The victim is a District Attorney in Topeka. And a court stenographer was assaulted the day before. Dean says let's go out there and see what's going on. She could be hunting.

He gets the shakes when he grabs his knife.

Sam and Dean interview the DA. He says she asked about a case. The Middletons. The case never went to trial. Files were sealed. There's no record of the case anywhere. Anything you can remember about the case? No. Too long ago, sorry. Sam says the attacker didn't let the stenographer go until she gave up a name. Your name. Dean grabs him and yells at him to talk. Sam is disturbed. DA says he got paid to leave the case alone. Councilwoman Barbara Cordry.

Sam reading Charlie's social worker file. We need to find her before she does something she can't walk away from. Sam and Dean get to Barbara. She says she has no idea what they're talking about. Make an appointment with my assistant.

Dean eating in the car. What the hell is kale? LOL. Sam reading the file. Charlie's report isn't sunshine and roses. They hear a scream from Barbara's house. Break in and look around. Find Charlie holding her at knife point. What the hell happened to you in Oz? Charlie insults them. Dean says this isn't you. She runs. He chases her. She wraps him up and punches him, then kicks him. Runs out.

Sam talks to Barbara. Charlie wanted the bank statements.

Dean goes outside. Charlie drives off. The tire on the Impala is flat. Charlie with curled hair drives up in a yellow car. Two Charlies!!!

Sam and Dean and Charlie in a bar. Charlie says she made a deal with the Wizard. To win the war she had to unleash her true darkness. They're connected physically. Hurt her, hurt Charlie. And being good is really annoying. Dark Charlie is trying to win Charlie back. She won the war, but Charlie doesn't want her near her again. Dean says it's not you, it's a twisted version of-- Me. Charlie wants to lock her up. Sam says that's not the answer and Dean agrees. Charlie says Dark Charlie broke the key. No way to get back to Oz. Okay, so we need to trace the payments. Charlie says she can't hack the accounts. Dean gets refills.

Dean stares at his reflection. Has the shakes.

Charlie guided Sam in the hack. Leads back to Russell Wellington. Dean wants to talk aside. Charlie says secrets are bad. So they tell her she shouldn't go near this guy, and Charlie is part of you. Okay, lets go to the bunker and research the key. Dean says do that and he'll watch Russell. Protect them both. Got it.

Charlie asks Sam if Dean is okay. I'll tell you on the way.

Dean tries listening to meditation tapes. Sees Russell arrive at work. Dean goes in and signs in. Sits in the waiting area.

Sam finds the file on the MoL that found the key. Clive. Where did he end up? Let's find out.

Dean signed as Mr. Presley. LOL. He's the last one waiting. So he meets with Russell. Russell's going to the lake house after work. They chat.

Charlie thinks Clive might still be alive. So let's go.

Dean describes his dream house. Russell says I'm a busy man and you're wasting my time. Dean says show me what you got. I can show you the door. Dean says I'm the guy that's going to save your life. Starts talking about Charlie's case. Lights go out. Dean tells him to stay there. Phone is out, too.

Dark Charlie with a knife. Dean asks to talk. She's not into it. He says you don't want to do this. She says she just wants to talk. Like the others? You're right. I got out of hand. But this was never about revenge. I want him to see my face, what he did to me, to us. That's all. Please Dean. I deserve that. And then we hand him over to the cops. He takes her knife. Okay.

Russell calls her Celeste. Says I'm so sorry. What I did, I was young, stupid. What I took I can never give back to you. And after the accident never should've happened. it was selfish and wrong and I should pay for it. She says you took everything from me. He says he's so sorry. She says she forgives him. Then shuts and locks the door. She has a second knife and stabs Russell. Then she's out the window. Russell is dead.

Dean calls Sam. Sam puts it on speaker. He says it's over. She killed Russell. I'm so sorry, Charlie. She says it's my fault. He says no, it's not. Did you find a way to Oz? Maybe. Sam texts him the address. Dean's on the way.

Dean in the bar. Dark Charlie sits next to him. He says you lied to me. You lied to yourself. But something's off with you. I'm not the monster here, Dean. He was. Being dark sets you free. Part of you knows that's right, too.

Sam and Charlie reach Clive. The man says he's not Clive Dylan. Charlie shows him the key.

Dark Charlie wants the bartender. She tells Dean there's no right or wrong. Dean says they're going to fix this. You won't be you much longer. She says we'll see. And wants to ask the bartender to dance. Dean, she left out the back, you dumbass. And took the Impala! He runs out and calls Sam. But he told Dark Charlie the wrong town.

Clive says the keys can only be repaired in Oz. Sam asks who kidnapped you. Bad people. Charlie says you're lying. Clive says what happened to you happened to me. My Id was awful. He became the Wizard of Oz. Charlie says Dorothy is in trouble, then. Clive says there's a way to summon him here. He gets his pistol. If I'm mortally wounded, he'll have to come here to save us both.

Dean arrives in a minivan. Hears a shot. Then Dark Charlie pulls up. She followed him. He says take one more step and I'll put you down.

The house shakes. Wizard comes through a mirror. "What have you done, you fool?" The Wizard is a young version, but they both have the same facial scar.

Sam pulls his gun on the Wizard the the Wizard ties him up.

Dean and Dark Charlie fight.

Sam pleads with The Wizard. Wizard starts killing Sam.

Dean breaks Charlie's arm.

Good Charlie picks up the pistol and shoots Clive. Wizard dies.

Dean beats on Dark Charlie. Sam yells at him to stop, carrying Good Charlie. Sam lays her next to herself. Dark Charlie says you killed the Wizard. The magic was in you all the time, Celeste. Sam gives Charlie a key and Dark Charlie goes back into Charlie. Sam pulls her into his arms. She cries. Dean looks at his knuckles.

MoL. Sam on the phone. With Cas. We gotta find Cain, or something. Charlie's patched up. Sam tells her she should be resting. She says 2 days of sleep is long enough. Anything about the Mark? Maybe. Book of the Damned in Tuscany. She'll check it out. What about Dark Charlie? She's, uh, quiet. Just gotta keep moving forward. We all do. She goes to Dean. We are going to fix this. I'm not letting what happened to me happen to you. He says it already did. She says you have something Cain didn't. You're a Winchester. I forgive you, Dean. He says yeah, well, I don't. She knows. How's that working out for you, huh? He hugs her. I'm so sorry, kiddo. She says then prove it. A hug from Sam and she leaves. Sam tells her to be careful. She says she'll call if she finds something. Arrivaderci, bitches. LOL.

Sam tells Dean that he can do this. We can do this. Dean says let's get to work. Dean looks at his hand again.

Next week - teen Dean? LOL.
