Wynonna Earp: Forever Mine Nevermind
Original air date: August 4th, 2017
Warning: Spoilers

How kick-ass was it that the very pregnant Wynonna was doing back flips and then high-fiving her belly? How more impressive was it that she finally got all her throw pillows to coordinate in color?

Okay, so Waverly and Rosita kissed. I don’t know how I feel–actually, I have too many feelings. I mean I love WayHaught. I’ve wanted them to be the couple that withstands everything; I want them to make it. I still do, in the long run.  But, I like Rosita. I don’t even care that she is a Revenant. I’m glad she’s not dead, but after last week’s episode–we see Revenants are not necessarily evil, and like Rosita, they may have just been in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Now I’m going to play Devil’s advocate. I don’t think it is going to happen, but maybe at the moment Rosita is a better choice for Waverly. Waverly is still trying to figure out how she fits into the group. Rosita is secure enough to let Waverly grow and change. Also, if Waverly turns out to be half Revenant, there will be no judgement from Rosita. She may in fact help Waverly come to terms with it. They don’t technically need to be dating for any of this to occur– I guess I’m just exploring options for Waverly.

It’s easy as part of the audience to look at WayHaught and say what they should do. But as very well written characters, they are bound to make mistakes like the rest of us. I know Haught had good intentions keeping the paperwork from Waverly, but what did she think was going to happen? It seems to me what Waverly wants is support not protection, and Haught likes to protect (she is a police officer). I think in the long run they’ll get it worked out.

Speaking of strained relationships–Doc and Wynonna. First, I love that she made him mac & cheese with hotdogs. Second, the doll (and painting), were creepy as hell. But I have a thing about dolls. The argument it prompted was probably one Doc and Wynonna needed to have.  I want them to be on the same page when Clootie is released. The Meredith Widow has now learned the location of the last seal (Doc’s ring). I hope Jeremy can do a cloaking spell or something to protect the ring so as the Widows can’t mess up any plans.

The one relationship I love right now is Jeremy and Dolls.  They are just too funny together.  Dolls is the perfect straight-man to Jeremy and I like that we are getting to see more of Jeremy, especially more of him out of lab. I’m glad they were proactive in taking on the Widows in this episode, and I hope they can help Meredith get her face back. (There’s a sentence I never thought I would write.) And given time, Jeremy can perfect his anti-paralysis gel.

What we did get this episode was some resolution with Tucker. At least I’m assuming he’s dead. I don’t think the Widows have left any of their meals alive and I can’t say I’ll miss him–but I really wanted Haught to be the one to take him out. But I was excited when I thought he was burnt to a crisp, so I’m not complaining too much.  This series just keeps getting better and I’m in a slight panic over the fact we only have three more episodes. I am so happy that those aren’t the end I’m already looking forward to season three!
