And in the 1939 movie, she definitely set Dorothy up to have to kill The Wicked Witch. "Yea, she killed her, and look, she's wearing her shoes, and there they'll stay. Watch out, or a house may fall on you too" And... she knew all along Dorothy didn't have to do anything but, click her heels together and say "There's No Place Like Home" 3 times, but, she withheld that information until after Dorothy killed the Witch for her.
I thought the Wizard had Dorothy kill the Witch because he was afraid of them? It's been a long time since I watched the movie and I recall the books better.
Well he did, but, Glinda sent Dorothy to him, and that doesn't change the taunting of The Wicked Witch that Glinda did, ensuring The Wicked Witch would see Dorothy as her enemy (And again, Glinda could've saved all that grief by telling Dorothy how to get home, but, she deliberately withheld that information)
