Recapping Season 1 of Wynonna Earp: Episode 3: Leavin' on your mind

Previously on Wynonna Earp: Wynonna came back to her hometown Purgatory, where it's full of demons called revenants. Luckily, she has a nifty gun that can kill them, and an overly serious partner Marshall Dolls and a cute sister Waverly to help her fight evil. Waverly and Officer Nicole Haught met and it was totally adorable. See my recap of Episode 1 and Episode 2 for more details.

Look at him, he's like almost all moustache.


Wynonna is at Shorty's carrying all Waverly's stuff downstairs, so she can move it into their old family home. While she's there she takes some time to flirt with Doc Holliday. She tells him he's just her type and he responds with: "What makes you think that you are mine?"

God knows what she sees in him, but maybe it's just his enormous moustache that's putting me off. Also, his name always makes me think of that 10cc song for some reason. Waverly doesn't really get Doc's appeal either, but Wynonna tells her not to judge.

Waverly is taking her new role as consultant for the Black badge division very seriously, by giving a presentation about her research on the history of Purgatory and revenants. It's all very adorable, although Agent Dolls and Wynonna are less enthusiastic about it.

















Waverly's cuteness is wasted on these two.


















They come to the conclusion that what they have to do is contain all demon activity by killing the revenants one by one. How is any of this new information? Wynonna goes all serious, saying she's going to kill them one by one by shooting them in the face.

Wynonna:      I want them to tremble with fear before me

Agent Dolls:  You've got powdered sugar on your nose

Wynonna, badass donut eater.
Waverly is all excited about her research, but Agent Dolls is his usual unimpressed, bossy self. "Welcome to team do as he says!" Wynonna tells Waverly. I wonder if the Earp sisters hate being told what to do as much as me. Probably, at least Wynonna, I am not sure about Waverly, she seems much more agreeable.

They are interrupted by Nicole who has some important information for them. All you need to know from this scene is that the looks Waverly and Nicole gave each other were absolutely adorable.



They are so adorable...
















While Waverly is putting away her research she notices a photo of Doc Holliday. "Oh shit!" she proclaims, as that is the exact same guy as Wynonna has been flirting with.

Throughout this episode there are numerous revenants scenes, which I can sum up as follows: the revenants are up to no good. They like hurting and killing people for no good reason. Oh, and they like gory stuff. So far we've already seen a severed tongue, this episode it's a severed hand.

Apparently, the revenants are planning a ritual, like you do when you are evil. If they succeed they will be able to leave Purgatory and maim and kill all over the world.

Agent Dolls is explaining more background stuff, to which Wynonna replies: "Sometimes you come so close to cool, then cool makes a run for it." Poor guy. Wynonna has heard enough and goes to look for some Tequila. Tequila is never a good idea.

Waverly just wants to know what his game is.










At Shorty's Waverly is trying to question Doc Holliday without actually telling him she knows who he is. She's not too happy when he tells her he's staying at Bobo's trailer park. Bobo is the revenant boss, who Waverly mistook for her imaginary friend when she was little.

Wynonna is visiting her dad and sister's grave. She feels she shouldn't be the one hunting revenants and she misses them both a lot. Her conversation gets interrupted by a revenant trying to dig up a grave.

Death really sucks.

















She tries to shoot him, but he is too fast for her.

Agent Dolls has looked into the grave the revenant was digging up and shares the boring details with Wynonna. He tells her to drink her coffee and then they are are leaving.

She complains it's really hot, then does attempt to drink it, only to burn herself. Why can't she take the coffee with her? After all, It's already in a handy plastic cup with a lid on it.

Meanwhile a revenant is checking out Champ, proclaiming: "Look at that body! I call dibs!" Champ is rather pleased with that, saying he gets that a lot. He thinks he's hitting on him, or just admiring his body in a totally straight kind of way. But of course the revenant is thinking of possessing his body.

Champ: so unbelievably pretty and dumb.




















Luckily, Wynonna and Agent Dolls show up. The revenants are searching for a vault in the store and are using Champ and the other shoppers as hostages. Agent Dolls is just telling Wynonna they can't go in because they are outnumbered, when the police arrive. Agent Dolls isn't very pleased with that, but to me any scene with Officer Haught is a good scene.

Officer Haught looking all badass.

They decide Wynonna is going in and will exchange herself for the hostages. Some hostages are released, but she's still stuck in there with Champ, who has the great idea she should cause a distraction by showing her boobs.

Agent Dolls tells Nicole to call Waverly and tell her about her sister. Nicole mentions Champ's truck in front of the store and Agent Dolls asks if that's Waverly's boyfriend, to which Nicole responds: "Unfortunately!" Don't worry Nicole, he won't be for much longer.

Nicole is thinking of ways to create a world without Champ.


Wynonna is helping the revenants open a vault. Turns out it's not the first time she's attempted something like that. She has sure lived an interesting life before she became a demon hunter.

Meanwhile, Waverly is snooping at the trailer park where Bobo and Doc Holliday are having a conversation. Of course she gets caught and Doc Holliday pretends to shoot her and she runs off.

Waverly is upset once again.


Doc follows her to Shorty's where he confronts her. Waverly cannot believe he is working with Bobo, while he is supposed to be a hero! That really pisses Doc off, probably because there is some truth to it.

He tells her if anyone is going to save them all, it certainly isn't going to be the heir's little sister. Waverly tells him she's stupid for thinking he is anything but just another a-hole.

Wynonna has managed to open the vault and now the revenants want to leave the store using the hostages as cover. Agent Dolls just lets them all go, so I am hoping he has some sort of a plan.

Unhappy hostages.

















It turns out Agent Dolls put a tracking device on Wynonna. He's followed them and is waiting for the right moment to save the day. They find out the revenants want to put something evil inside of Champ's body. He's horrified, saying "Wynonna, I don't even put gluten in this."

While the revenant is chanting, Wynonna tells Champ to run and he does almost without a second glance, although he assures them he is getting help.

Now there's a very dark evil something that wants to possess Wynonna's body. Shorty jumps in front of her and gets possessed instead. They fight and Agent Dolls hits Shorty over the head with a rock.

Wynonna: "This is not the kind of penetration I am used to."


















Then all that's left is for Wynonna to shoot the revenants. She doesn't want to shoot the one that is possessing Shorty's body, but she has to. It's not always easy being a fighter of evil.

Being a demon hunter sucks.














Waverly is at Shorty's crying over the death of Shorty. Nicole comes over to tell her how sorry she is. It's a very sweet moment. A sweet moment that is totally ruined by Champ. Then again, he is still her boyfriend, so we can't really blame him. Much.

You want to comfort her so bad, but she's not yours to comfort...
Waverly tells Nicole she got her voicemail about Wynonna, and that it was really sweet of her. Nicole just gives Waverly her Nicole smile, and says: "Sure." Then she walks off, because this whole situation is just way too awkward.

Champ says something about her just rubs him the wrong way. Probably the fact that she has the hots for his girlfriend. That's when Waverly starts to cry, because it's all just too much. Champ totally doesn't get it, when he proclaims: "Don't cry, it's ok, I am ok." Yeah, like any of this was ever about you.

Life's too short Waverly, dump him already!

Waverly tells him Wynonna said he was really brave and he has the nerve to actually agree with her that he was. He is also never leaving her side again and just keeps on kissing her, and neither is making Waverly very happy.

Nicole goes to talk to Agent Dolls to get an update on the case. He isn't very forthcoming. Dolls see her looking at Waverly, with a look that's saying she's so gone - she's fallen for her and nothing is going to change that.

She's a goner.
Nicole:           She said she was glad I called.

Agent Dolls:  I bet.

Waverly tells Wynonna she is one of the good guys. That's not a very hard thing to be when almost everyone around you is so very bad. Even Agent Dolls admits Shorty was just collateral damage, because he had to know for sure if revenants could really possess people.

Wynonna is rather pissed off about that, especially when Dolls tells her "it's a war" and "this is what our victories might have to look like."

Wynonna:    Wow. With all the shit I have done in my life. Dolls, working with you...I don't think I can look myself in the mirror.

She already knew he was older...




















Wynonna walks off and ends up at the Earp's family home, which is how every episode of Wynonna Earp seems to end. She's drinking away her sorrows again. Doc's there and she tells him Shorty was her only friend. Doc tells her he's Doc Holliday. Finally. He also says he's at her disposal. Whatever that means.

Wynonna:   Well, shit.

The end.
