Felicia Day Makes A Guest Appearance On ‘Supernatural’

Published 2 years ago by , Updated July 24th, 2013 at 9:27 am,

Sci-fi staple Felicia Day will be stopping by the CW’s hit thriller Supernatural in an upcoming episode, amusingly titled “The Girl With the Dungeons and Dragons Tattoo.”

The April 27 episode will feature Day as a low-level tech at one of Dick Roman’s (the season’s primary antagonist) companies whose amateur computer hacking gets her some face time with the Winchester brothers.

When asked about Day’s appearance, executive producer Sera Gamble teased “[She] unwittingly gets wrapped up in Sam and Dean’s problems… It’s a classic story of an everyday girl who does not want to be in a whistleblower position.

As a fan-fave, Felicia Day is kind of a geek TV nomad, popping in and out of various sci-fi shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dollhouse and Eureka, the latter of which will meet its end after its upcoming fifth season–where she usually tends to play the cute, naïve, slightly ditsy girl. Although Day’s character is described in this episode as someone “unwittingly” getting involved – Supernatural has a way of turning the tables on its viewers at the last minute (for better or for worse).

While most of her TV roles have been limited to guest spots, Day has built herself a strong cult following with her web series.  Day currently divides her multi-talented skills as creator, writer and producer, of fantasy web show The Guild in which she also stars as Cyd Sherman and her alter ego Codex. Outside of her work on The Guild (which is expected to go into its sixth season) Day is quickly recognized to web fans as Penny on Joss Whedon’s Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, also staring Neil Patrick Harris.

Following the events of the last act of Dr. Horrible’s first season, it’s not yet known if Day will make a return to the musical dramedy when the web show begins filming of its second season this summer.

There is no question Felicia Day has her fair-sized loyal geek fan base – so while her Supernatural debut as a Leviathan whistleblower may not be anything to throw a parade over, Day is still expected to add her own quirky unique sense of comedy to the character and will fit right in.

The seventh season of Supernatural has been met with mixed reviews from both critics and fans, so the addition of Day for an episode or even the much anticipated return of Mischa Collins earlier in the midseason will probably not do much to mollify disappointed fans, especially with the reality of a ninth season still being up in the air.

  1. 9th season??? Aren’t you skipping 8???

    • I was thinking the same thing.

  2. This doesn’t make much sense. A ninth season? We haven’t had the 8th yet. There isn’t a TV season, TV series, book or film that you couldn’t say had had ‘mixed reviews’. There is never100% consensus. But s7 has gone down extremely well with SPNs viewers. There are no legions of ‘disappointed fans’ as you imply. The only quantitative measure of that, ratings, bears that out as the show’s audience this season has been steady as a rock. You write as if you don’t know anything about the show eg the fact that you don’t know what season we are on or how to spell the name of one of its stars (it’s Misha not Mischa).

    • Well said. :)

    • Uh, where have you been? The fandom is filled with people who are disgusted by this season. The only reason we have hope is because Sera Gamble is stepping down as showrunner and Jeremy Carver is taking her place. I and many others have simply stopped watching altogether. I only watched again to see Misha back.

      So yes, the author of the article is right on that point. There are a ton of pissed off fans. A lot of them may be Castiel fans, but the quality itself has taken a turn for the worse. It’s a pretty common thing among series that last this long.

      • Long time Supernatural fan here and I am totally disappointed with the last couple of seasons. Bad move to practically eliminate Cas and Bobby. So many story hack jobs it’s ridiculous-the Mother of All? Dragons? Big business Leviathons? Marrying off Sam and making Dean a dad for a day? What happened to the Heavenly weapons story from last season? That was going really well-until they killed off our favorite Angels.

  3. I’ve watched Supernatural since its very first episode and I’M disappointed with this season. I doubt I’m the only one.

    • You are not alone. I’ve been very disappointed until the last 3 episodes of this season. Seriously, (SEASON 7 SPOILERS) Sam got married in one episode this season, and Dean had a kid in another (END).
      How lame is that? Very. However, the Cas/Meg episode made me think that perhaps the writers do have a long-term goal for these last two unnecessary seasons…that I continually tune in for because I am such a big fan of the characters. Even at its worst, Supernatural is still better than most shows on television. So right there…as a fan, I’ve posted my own personal “mixed review.”

      And regarding this article, I’m excited to see Felicia Day on the show. And Scott Stoute, watch out for typos…the NERD RAGE backlash will get ‘cha.

      • Well, I never…this nerd is most certainly outraged!!! :)

  4. Errr… actually that’s not entirely true on the mixed reviews, the response has been fairly positive, nor is it true about the 9th season, seeing as we haven’t had an 8th season yet…but seeing as the CW just announced they’d signed a new showrunner in the shape of past producer/writer Jeremy Carver, an 8th season is a sure thing. Also, Misha is spelt wrong…sorry but just a little bit of research and attention to detail wouldn’t go astray when you are essentially panning a show at the end there. That said, I’m really looking forward to Felicia. Supernatural have fabulous guest actors and she’s one of them She won’t mollify me though…because I don’t need mollifying.

  5. Ive been a die hard fan since day 1 and ive been dissapointed this season. namely the lack of story progression, and cas and bobbys missing most of the season.

  6. I also have been a fan since episode 1. I am happy wit this season even though I was missing Cass and Bobby. Then I got Cas and now I get Bobby so what is there to complain about? Despite being a Walking Dead, American Horror Story fan, Supernatural has been a mainstay and I always look forward to each and every episode. AWESOME show!

    • Soup, I’m fans of those shows too and Lost Girl, Being Human(prefer American version) the Walking Dead and Supernatural. :)

    • I’ve been a fan of the show since it’s first episode too and to be honest I’m sick of listening to the complaining about the show. I’ve loved this season. It’s been exciting and very well done. I wa upset about Bobby but as you can tell he’s not gone. As for Cas obviously he’s not gone either. Personally I could care less about him. Sorry but I loathed the angel storyline. It went on far too long. Also the critics have mostly been very positive with the show. As for season 8 that really looks good considering Supernatural won 2 Peoples Choice Awards including Best Drama and Best SciFi/Horror. The CW already made it clear that Supernatural was one of their shows that will be back for another season. They just haven’t made it official.

  7. Wow, this show is still on television??? I thought it ended after season five..how is there still a story to tell?

    • TV Magic. It honestly should have ended with season 5, especially after seeing the season 7 premiere with those stupid ‘Leviathans’.

    • Ha, ha. You know it’s still on the air you’re even posting on it.

      • i honestly didn’t know. Maybe when Kripke left after S5 I decided that the main storyline was concluded. It seems like CW is just beating a dead horse. Why do American television shows go on ad nauseam, until the show becomes a hollow shell of it’s former glory?

  8. MAKE HER A REGULAR! Long lost sister/recurring awesomeness!!!!!!!!

  9. I’m a huge fan and this season has been very good. Can never get enough of Crowley!

  10. I wonder why fans are disappointed. This season reminds me of past seasons where there is a major threat but that threat is not dwelt on episode after episode. I am anticipating the Leviathan threat being handled in a major way soon, so in the mean time, I’m enjoying seeing Cas back again, and Bobby soon. Fan now, fan always.

  11. Die hard fan here. This season hasnt been the best, especially when they killed off Bobby. But they have him on as a ghost now which is a little better. I don’t know how that will work out on the show. Their father had escaped from hell and then you never saw him again. Regardless of being disappointed or not, I will still be a loyal fan and stick with the show. Most long running shows does have a not so great season or two
