Lost in Oz, Chapter 13: Go For Kansas

Well, it all came together in the end. Dorothy comes up with a clever plan to sneak the gang into the castle so that Glinda can recover the Pearl of Pingaree, reverse the spell, and make everyone remember Glinda and how good she is again. Of course, all does not all go smoothly, and Langwidere gains the upper hand. It's West who proves to be the real hero, turning on her aunt by using her friendship with Dorothy against Langwidere. Dorothy's journal then gets filled with magic again, and all she has to do is say "Go forth" again, and she's on her way home. But something goes wrong, and the Gale house is now somewhere else!

Needless to say, I really hope there's a second season, not only to resolve that cliffhanger, but also because I really enjoyed this show, and want to see more of it. The liberal use of characters and places from the books is a lot of fun for this long-term fan, but there still wasn't a Tin Woodman! I hope we get to see this show's version of him in the new season, alongside Jack Pumpkinhead, Ozma, and other favorite characters.
