Delle Seyah tries to push before Zeph determines that the baby is too large for a conventional birth
Partly-Hullen John keeps banging his head against the wall in the lounge where he is restrained. (Zeph theorizes that the Hullen parasite is creating a massive inflamation in his brain and the concussive stimulation relieves the pressure.) D’Avin is worried about that, but apparently Lucy has no method of restraint that would prevent violent prisoners from injuring themselves. (This actually turns out to be a useful thing, since Delle Seyah’s baby is too big for a normal birth (because of accelerated fetal development) and a C-section proves impossible because pregnancy hormones accelerate the Hullen healing process making the incision close too quickly.

It all starts with Robin (Justin Kelly) finding a bleeding tree along with clothes partly buried in the snow nearby. He calls it a “murder tree” and doesn’t explain further. Robin doesn’t notice, but the tree seems to have someone trapped inside it. (Is he hiding in there, or is he imprisoned?) Robin is a jazz historian working as a forest ranger and later in the episode Waverly will fix him up with Jeremy (Varun Saranga). But before that, Waverly asks Nicole if she’s gotten rid of Bulshar’s ring yet. She says she hasn’t. Then, once Waverly is out of sight, Nicole tosses the ring into the woods, just to be done with it.
The Shelterlands music festival massacre, at which everyone but Nicole died, happened in 1996, and Nicole remembers being already down by the river when the attack happened, and escaping in a canoe. Since Nicole was six years old at the time, it seems likely that someone who knew the attack was about to happen made a point of rescuing her. It might have been Michelle, or Ward Earp, or Bobo Del Rey, or someone else entirely. The question is, why, out of the entire crowd, was Nicole singled out to be the only survivor?
This is the second mention of a canoe on the show this season. A couple of episodes ago, we learned that Wynonna lost her virginity in one. Continue reading →
Hullenized Johnny is preoccupied with finding Dutch. He locates a pool of the green, and seems to use repeated attempts to kill his brother as a device to get Dutch’s attention. (He could have jumped into the pool to make himself fully Hullen, but did not.) And it works. Just as he is about to strangle the life out of D’Avin, Dutch walks out of the greenpool and shoots John (non-lethally) with the gun he threw in there earlier. Then Dutch loses consciousness. (The pool crystalizes after she leaves it. Even Zeph doesn’t know what that means.) Continue reading →
