WYNONNA EARP – Season 3 Episode 10 – SPOILERS
Kevin (Anna Silk) walks out of the abandoned uranium mine where Bulshar was once entombed, . She removes her protective gear and heads for the Earp homestead, somehow acquiring a Smart FourTwo Electric Drive Coupe along the way. (Smart vehicles are distributed and sold by Mercedes-Benz.) Kevin describes herself “a representative of a long line of Ambassadors tasked with looking after the balance in the world” She calls her bosses “The Menfolk”, and seems quite resentful of them. And she tells Wynonna and Charlie that Bulshar’s arm is still in the mine and it can be used to make a weapon that will kill the demon. (It turns out that Kevin is lying, and the quest for Bulshar’s arm is a device to find out if Waverly can control the power of her father’s ring.) Continue reading →
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. Continue reading →
