WYNONNA EARP – Season 1 Episode 9 – SPOILERS
After binding her with the gallows silk provided by the late blacksmith, Doc and Wynonna take the Stone Witch (Rayisa Kondracki) to an isolated part of the salt flats considerably north of the triangle. Doc digs a hole in the salt and Wynonna buries the witch up to her neck, putting Constance in a position much like Doc was in at the bottom of that well, and leaving open the chance for someone to find her and dig her out. (The nearest salt flats to Purgatory would be in Wood Buffalo National Park, about a fifteen hour drive from Purgatory.)
Three quotes of interest from this episode:
- In the course of balancing Wynonna’s needs and the requirements of the bureaucracy for which he works, Dolls (Shamier Anderson) says this: “Technically, it’s not the gun that kills them. It’s…” He never finishes the sentence.
- During Wynonna’s psych evaluation, we get a bit of information about her past. The analyst (Shawna Burnett) tells Wynonna: “The bomb in the Bleaker Case was traced back to a young woman who ran briefly with the Bandidos. You ran with the Bandidos.”
Sheriff Neadley (Greg Lawson) tells Dolls, “You ever notice that we get some pretty high winds here in Purgatory? You ever notice that the weathervane in the town square always points west? Took it down, oiled it myself. Works fine, any direction. But a high wind comes up, always points west.” Is Neadley saying that high winds in Purgatory always blow from the west? Or that no matter which way the wind blows, the weather vane points west? And why only high winds? If he oiled the weather vane, even light winds should be able to shift its direction.
Bobo buys the bar. It seems he believes that the “lead” promised him by the Stone Witch may be concealed there. Will the Earps open a competing pub across town? Will they find a legal way out of the sales agreement? Shorty’s has been the place where Wynonna and Waverly interface with the town. The new management will make that difficult.
Now that Waverly and Nicole are a couple, Nicole will need to be told about the Earp curse, which may make things awkward for Officer Haught at work, because Neadly has told her to rewrite her report on the kidnapping incident, removing any mention of the supernatural. See, Neadly told Dolls that he knows stuff, but won’t tell anybody and that includes Nicole. So if Nicole and Neadley both know what’s going on but tell each other they don’t, much confusion should arise.
Here’s some of what Katherine Barrell had to say about Waverly and Nicole in an interview with The TV Junkies:
“Relationships are not easy and nothing comes without a cost. It’s not like all the sudden Nicole and Waverly are going to walk into the sunset. Just like every real life relationship, they still have their challenges and we don’t know at this point if this is something that will just last a couple months or a week or be something that will be around for awhile…It would’ve been so easy for Waverly to break up with Champ and then Nicole to come to the rescue in Episode 7, but that’s not what happened at all. They didn’t even see each other. Nicole had a whole episode with Wynonna and they worked a case together because Nicole’s a real person and not just there to be the LGBT representation on the show.”
Michael Eklund has been cast as Martin, the violent ringleader of The Rowdy Three, in BBC America’s eight-episode series based on the Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency novels by Douglas Adams. The show will follow the adventures of Detective Gently (Samuel Barnett) and his reluctant assistant Todd (Elijah Wood), as they cross paths with sometimes dangerous characters. Filming began in Vancouver on 24 May with a premiere slated for sometime in the fall.
There is now WayHaught merchandise. T-shirts, mugs, and stickers can be had at Redbubble.
Some of the cast of WYNONNA EARP will be at San Diego Comic Con 2016. The announcement, from David Ozer, President of IDW, specifically mentioned Melanie Scrofano, Tim Rozon, Dominique Provost-Chalkley, and Shamier Anderson. SDCC will run from 21-24 July at the San Diego Convention Center.
Katherine Barrell tweeted that the height difference between herself and Dominique Provost-Chalkley is slightly less than 5 inches (the same as the height difference between Rachel Skarsten and Anna Silk on LOST GIRL). In the scene where Waverly and Nicole finally get together, Barrell was in boots with two inch heels, and Provost-Chalkley was in flats, making the total height difference seven inches.
