Wynonna Earp: Let’s Pretend We’re Strangers

Original air date: July 7th, 2017

Warning: Spoilers

Whoa doggy, things are getting crazy in Purgatory.  I am skipping straight to the end of the show—Wynonna is preggers! Of all the twists, this was not expected. Having said that, as far as twists go, this is awesome. I can’t wait to see a momma-bear Wynonna; demons won’t stand a chance. And Doc’s the father right? I’m not missing anyone am I? Oh, it is going to be fun when the others learn of this development. Seeing how the dynamics of the different relationships change with this news is going to amazing.

Finally, Mikshun (The tentacle goo demon), has been dealt with. I am glad we wrapped it up this episode. As fun as it was to watch Melanie Scrofano act as possessed Wynonna—I think this story arc needed to end. However, the idea that Mikshun could possess more than one person was a really cool concept. It does make me wish that while Waverly was possessed she spread Mikshun to a few others, leading to a battle royale between Mikshuns and Wynonna and The Order.

Besides the big reveal, some other important things happened this episode. The Order was introduced; they also look to rid the triangle of demons and could be allies with Wynonna and the gang. I think they will be helpful, but only for so long. Any group called The Order is going to be a pain to work with. However with Black Badge HQ deserted, when the big bad does show, The Order might be the backup Wynonna will need.

Now, I know I said I wanted Agent Lucado out of there, but having your head explode—that’s rough.  It won’t help her any now, but it turns out Black Badge wasn’t ghosting just her– they’re not there anymore. I am very curious to see if they are on the run, or if something has wiped them out. Either way, it’s good news for Dolls, because I doubt Black Badge is worried about him anymore.  And thanks to Doc, Rosita and Jeremy, he has his own supply of demon juice. (Can we call it that, because it makes it sound awesome.)  At first I didn’t know if I missed Dolls—but I did. I think the dynamics of the group were skewed without him. I’m looking forward having him back in then fold and if he can keep breathing fire, I’ll be really excited.

Can I take a moment to talk about Juan Carlos. What’s up with him? Are we going to find out what he is soon? I just don’t know how I feel about him. Right now he’s been a convenient plot device, but will he turn out to be more than that?
One more thing—anyone else want to try hot sauce and syrup with their pancakes?
