Ep 05 01

West kidnaps Dorothy

West interrogates Dorothy, forcing her to reveal East died by a gun. When West tries to use the gun on Dorothy, the weapon doesn't work - the clip has been removed and there are no bullets. The witch doesn't realise that, but she knocks Dorothy down with the gun.

West contacts Glinda and tells her that she apprehended their sister's killer. Glinda is certain West will botch the interrogation and decides to come herself. Meanwhile, West continues to torture Dorothy for more information. She wants to know the identity of "K.Chapman", a name written on the lab coat Dorothy carried with her.

Tip, having become the new "tea-girl" for West, is present at the interrogation and recognises Dorothy. Dorothy asks him to help her, but he refuses. They are overheard by Miranda, a jealous former closest servant to West.

When West tortures Dorothy by stretching her magically and slamming her body against the floor, the Elements appear on Dorothy's hands. West tries to remove them and is injured.

Later, a woman looking like Karen Chapman is thrown into the cell. Dorothy is fooled by the ruse and "Karen" manages to get some of Dorothy's memories about East via a kind of mind-melting. It turns out "Karen" is just shape-shifting West, now armed with the knowledge that East was suspicious of Glinda.

Ep 05 02

Glinda is not happy with West's incompetence

When Glinda arrives, West takes her to Dorothy's cell. However, Tip had a change of heart and he helped Dorothy escape via sewer. West and Glinda find Miranda, trapped in the cell. Furious, Glinda storms out. Unhinged West kills Miranda.

Dorothy escapes through the sewer and sees Miranda's body being washed out. Determined to get the answers, Dorothy walks through the Emerald City drunk and festive on the Beast Forever Festival. She steals a rabbit mask and makes it to the palace, to the Wizard's rooms.

Accompanied by the Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd (played from a yellow walkman married with a gramophone) Dorothy draws her gun on the Wizard, who asks if she came to kill him. When she asks about Karen Chapman, the Wizard happily welcomes her home and calls her by her name.

Later, Silvie signals to Lucas she knows Dorothy is in the city and the two go out to find her.
