Charlie Bradbury (Apocalypse World)
|Episode(s)|| 13.18 Bring 'em Back Alive|
Charlie is a member of the human resistance's inner circle. Like the original version, she is also a lesbian.
After being captured by angels, Charlie and two humans are brought to a bridge where they are to be executed for high crimes of fomenting rebellion against the archangel Michael. When Charlie's hood is removed, the lead angel recognizes her as part of the resistance's inner circle, someone who has met Jack and Mary, and he orders her to be taken to the Northern Camp for interrogation.
At the POW camp, Charlie resists her interrogator, telling the angel to "bite" her. Realizing the pointlessness of the interrogation, the angel orders her death. As Charlie is tied to a post for execution, Dean Winchester arrives and tosses a grenade, preventing the executioner from delivering the killing blow. Dean and Ketch attack the camp, killing a number of angels and rescuing a confused Charlie.
While making their escape, Dean explains to Charlie about his universe, and how it had another version of her, who died. He tells her they were very close friends before changing the subject to Jack and Mary's current location. Charlie tells Dean that last she heard they were in what remains of Dayton, Ohio. She begins questioning why she should believe anything Dean has told her, when they come upon the rift, which is about to close. As Dean tells the group they need to go through, Charlie tells him she will be staying behind along with Ketch. She tells him it's her home and her friends need her, but asks that if Dean has a way to stop Michael, to come back and do it. Until then the fight is hers.
Charlie gets news of an angel kill squad executing human prisoners. She journeys with Ketch to intercept the angels leading the human to his death. When Charlie removes the hood on the prisoner to tell him he is saved, the prisoner reveals an angel blade and captures Charlie at blade point, forcing Ketch to drop his weapon.
The two are then taken to an old Gas-N-Sip where Charlie sits, restrained and bruised, while Ketch is brutally tortured by an angel. When Ketch proves resistant, the angel makes a call to the Apocalypse World version of Castiel. Upon his arrival, Castiel tells Charlie she has a strong will, but like everyone it will be broken, and all her information will flow from her mind to his. As he places his hands on her head and begins to extract information, the power cuts out. Realizing they are under attack, Castiel flees as Jack and the Winchesters mount a rescue, killing the angels. Upon seeing Charlie and untying her, Sam gives her a large hug, only to realize she is not his Charlie and apologize. Charlie is just happy to be rescued.
They return to Bobby's camp, where Charlie is among the refugees to make it through the rift. On the other side, Charlie enjoys a beer with the rest of the refugees in the Bunker.
Bobby reveals to Mary that after settling in, Charlie and Rowena are road tripping through the Southwest.
