WYNONNA EARP – Season 3 Episode 7 – SPOILERS
Wynonna has sex with Hottie McFireman, accidentally breaks a ceramic garden gnome (as well as a mirror), and semi-officially breaks up with Johnny Hank. (That’s what Michelle calls Doc.) Nicole, who is campaigning for sheriff after Nedley’s retirement announcement, finds she must somehow get the support of Bunny Loblaw (Jann Arden). Besides being xenophobic and homophobic, Bunny, who is Purgatory’s political boss, is allergic to cats, so Haught is not the favourite to win the job. Bunny thinks she wants Wynonna for sheriff because the Earps are one of the town’s original families, and because Wynonna is a “straight shooter”, who won’t lie to her about the more interesting happenings in the town.
The garden gnome and mirror come from Nedley’s secret closetfull of items infused with supernatural powers. Nedley kept his miniature Warehouse 13 secret from Dolls because he didn’t trust Black Badge. When broken, the ceramic gnome causes its mate (stored in a shed some distance from town) to come alive in human form. (He’s called “mountain man” in the credits.) The mountain man, dressed in a greatcoat and toque, chases Wynonna and Nicole into town demanding that one of them become his new wife. When the female gnome is re-assembled (by Waverly and Jeremy), the male gnome is appeased. He picks up his ceramic wife and leaves peacefully. There is no indication that he returns to a ceramic state, or that his wife takes a form similar to his, though presumably one or the other of those things must happen.
Nicole gets to be sheriff despite Bunny, and despite the bad luck generated by the broken mirror. On the way to that we learn that Nedley was the one who rescued six-year-old Nicole (although he did so after the she drifted downstream in the canoe). We also learn that Nicole failed college, and that both Wynonna and Nicole have seen Coyote Ugly (although it seems that Wynonna learned more from the movie). Nedley tells Nicole he thinks of her as a daughter, and that he’ll be around if she ever really needs him, so he’s not moving to Florida anytime soon. Wynonna needs a job, and will probably become Haught’s deputy.
MICHELLE: “I couldn’t wait to join the rodeo circuit and flee this shithole town. Then I came back one long, August weekend, and I got drunk, pregnant. Ended up marrying Ward Earp.”
DOC: “Well, he did give you three beautiful daughters.”
MICHELLE: “No, he gave me two. Waverly is Julian’s, remember?”
DOC: “What’s it like, being with an angel?”
MICHELLE: “What’s it like being with a demon? [takes a long swig of tequila] No, Julian made me feel like I didn’t have to break my spirit to be happy.”
DOC: “I do know what that is like.”
MICHELLE: “The night Waverly was born, Ward pushed Julian outside of the Ghost River Triangle. It happened right here. He’s been lost ever since.”
DOC: “How do you know that?”
MICHELLE: “Bobo told me.”
According to the Wynnona Earp Wikia, Willa Earp was born on 7 October 1987. Michelle says that she married Ward Earp after she became pregnant during a drunken August weekend. If Michelle remembers correctly, then Willa should have been born sometime in May.
Doc returns to the Gardner house to collect supplies for Michelle’s quest for Julian, and while he’s there, Kate (Chantel Riley) says something insightful about his relationship with Wynonna. Kate points out that Johnny Hank is both “the greatest gunslinger that ever lived” and a “dirty, rotten scoundrel” and then says: “All this helping and sacrificing she has you doing…Wynonna is breaking your spirit.” Perhaps with Kate, Doc won’t have to break his spirit to be happy.
Kate collects souvenirs from her kills, and Doc seems surprised to realize that Kate the vampire feeds on people from time to time. (This likely means that he hasn’t fed on anyone yet.) Johnny Hank may not yet be a full-fledged vampire. He still casts a reflection in the mirror, though it is fading.
Michelle leaves and Doc takes Bulshar’s ring (which now burns him when he wears it) to Wynonna, who has gotten a note from her mother telling her not to trust him. She provokes him into revealing himself to be a vampire, and then tells him he is no longer welcome in her home. “Bite me”, she tells Johnny Hank, and she says the line with considerable ambiguity.
Can everyone get the fuuuuuck out of the Gardner house please! Jeeeeeeezuz @WynonnaEarp

Will Michelle find Julian and return with him to Purgatory? How helpful will Bobo be against Bulshar? What will Mercedes do when she finds Johnny Hank and Kate living in her house? Is a giant gnome still roaming the Triangle, carrying his ceramic wife? What other artifacts lurk in Nedley’s Closet? And how did Wynonna get her truck fixed that fast? Or did she find another 1992 Ford pickup?
Natalie Krill (Willa Earp) is North in SUPERGRID, an homage to the golden era of apocalyptic cinema (the 1980s). The story is set in an alternate near-future where mining conglomerates have turned Canada into a wasteland, and a young smuggler (Marshall Williams) is forced to convince his older brother (Leo Fafard) to get back on the “Grid” and help him deliver a mysterious cargo. On the way, they must contend with road pirates and rebel gangs. SUPERGRID is directed by Lowell Dean (WOLFCOP), and will premiere at the 2018 Calgary International Film Festival on 21 September at 9:45pm at the Globe Cinema.
Krill will also be Anna in EVEREST, the story of Anna and her lover Olivia (Alexia Fast), who appear to be on holiday in Montreal, until Anna reveals that she plans to assassinate a pimp who was involved in the death of her younger sister years ago. Directed by Paul Barbeau, EVEREST is currently filming in Montreal.
Sebastian Pigott (Charlie) will be Brett Cundall in RADIO SILENCE, which stars Georgina Haig as relationship therapist Dr. Jill Peterman, who once was the host of a radio call-in show until a caller named Alexis killed herself on-air. She walked away from the show, but after a year has passed she is persuaded by the station manager to return to radio. As Jill starts to settle back into her show, mysterious call-ins begin, making her believe there could be a copy-cat out there. Jill begins to uncover a web of secrets and lies involving the mysterious voice she has come to know as Alexis. Carrie-Lynn Neales (SEED), and Erica Deutschman (LOST GIRL) are also in the cast. No release date has yet been announced.
Megan Follows (Michelle Gibson) will be Diane in Jerry Ciccoritti‘s film EXPOSURE, which stars Leslie Hope as Melanie, a recovering alcoholic who is comfortably married to Frank (Bruce Greenwood). But Melanie’s situation changes drastically when she is diagnosed with a terminal illness. Recognizing that life is much shorter than she thought, she leaves everything behind and heads for Los Angeles, where she becomes romantically involved with a photographer who has challenged her to sober up. (She fell off the wagon after her diagnosis.) Jeff Kober (the evil warlock Rack in 3 episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer) wrote the screenplay, which is based on his stage play Pornography. A trailer is available on Vimeo.
