Pippin somehow survived the explosion that was thought to have killed him in Episode 4.9, and Zeph finds him in one of the four cocoons on The Lady’s ship. (Actually, Lucy locates him when she scans The Lady’s ship, but doesn’t ID him specifically at the time.) When Zeph is understandably quite suspicious of his resurrection, Pip tells her: “You could just relax, chill with all the science stuff for one minute, and celebrate with me, ’cause, yay, I’m not dead.” He might at the same time be admonishing viewers to put away scientific quibbles and just enjoy the happy endings.

Wynonna and Waverly Earp (Melanie Scrofano and Dominique Provost-Chalkley)
Greg Bryk as Cobbs Pond in the upcoming Netflix series FRONTIER. A tweet from Bryk indicates he will guest in at least one WYNONNA EARP episode.
On her 27th birthday, Wynonna Earp (Melanie Scrofano) learns that she has inherited her great-great-grandfather Wyatt’s ‘mythic abilities’ (as well as his Buntline Special), and that she is also heir to a family curse. She reluctantly returns to her home town of Purgatory, Alberta where, because of the curse, the resurrected souls of criminals once killed by Wyatt Earp are attempting to take over the town.
As to how Scrofano got the lead role in the series, according to the Calgary Herald, Andras said Scrofano’s tape immediately jumped out, particularly since the young actress nonchalantly chewed gum throughout the entire audition.

“Which is like a mega no-no!” says Andras. (To be fair, Scrofano says she doesn’t remember the gum-chewing). “She just had this spirit of Not. Giving. A. Damn. She captured the spirit of that sexy craziness. I didn’t know what she was going to do next in the audition. She captured the charm but also the vulnerability of this girl with this massive burden of having to be a hero.”
Alex Paxton-Beesley as Megan Bates in a 2012 episode of the SyFy series ALPHAS, which can be streamed on Netflix (US).
Alex Paxton-Beesley is not yet listed as a cast member, but Sally Bishop is listed as a stunt double for her. Paxton-Beesley was Lola the Kitsune in the LOST GIRL episode The Kenzi Scale.
Greg Bryk of BITTEN may also appear on W.E. He tweeted on 14 December: “It will be fun to head to Calgary today to begin the end of the acting year @wynonnaearp.”
WYNONNA EARP’s first episode is directed by Paolo Barzman, who directed twelve episodes of LOST GIRL, including the series finale. Episodes 6 and 7 are directed by Brett Sullivan, who directed LG 2.17, The Girl Who Fae’d With Fire. Episodes 2, 3, 8 and 9 are directed by Ron Murphy, who directed nine LOST GIRL episodes including Groundhog Fae.
Could not locate a photo of Kate Drummond as Agent Lucado, but she did tweet this extraordinary photo of the view from her trailer on 5 February.
Here are some facts about Wyatt Earp. He worked as a lawman mostly in Kansas and Arizona (Calgary is 2600 kilometers almost due north of Tombstone, AZ and the OK Corral). There is no evidence that he ever actually possessed one of the Buntline Specials, or if he did, that he ever used it. Records were poorly kept in those days, but a revolver with a 12 inch barrel would be very conspicuous, difficult to handle, and might only be good for killing the walking dead. Wyatt had four spouses, three of them common-law, but records show that he had no children with any of them, so his relationship with Wynonna’s great-great grandmother must have been a more casual one.
WYNONNA EARP will premiere on SyFy (US) on 1 April at 10pm.
In Canada, episode one will air 4 April on CHCH TV, and CHCH will stream the first episode online simultaneously with SyFy’s April 1st premiere.
Lots of sparkage between Stacey the Valkyrie (Kate Corbett) and Dyson, who is now a lone wolf. STACEY TO DYSON: “Holy Odin, your jawline is insanely distracting.”
STACEY:Valhalla’s books are still unbalanced. TAMSIN:So are my boobs, but I make do.
Some speculation in the previous post was incorrect. Evony is no longer the Morrigan, despite the medical clinic bearing her name. And disappointingly, The Leviathan has not returned.
Hannah Anderson as Persephone
Bo takes the elevator to the Tartarus sub-basement, where she encounters Puca (Alex Appel), who takes a bite out of her leg. Then Persephone (Hannah Anderson) shows up and Bo heals herself with Persephone sex.
QUANTUM SEXUAL ENTANGLEMENT — Lauren, who is napping, has sex with an unidentified spirit at the same time that Bo is doing Persephone. Later in the episode, Lauren tells Bo that the ghost had some of Bo’s patented moves. This incident calls to mind the bit in Fae-ge Against the Machine where Trick and Stella share a kiss and Tamsin, far away in Brazenwood, is inspired to spontaneously kiss Bo at the same time.
Drawing (by Aife?) found by Bo behind some wallpaper in what used to be her nursery.
Persephone is the wife of Hades and, as it turns out, Bo’s stepmother. So Vex was correct (early in Season 4) when he described The Pyrippus as a boogeyman made up to frighten children. Odin is The Wanderer, and Odin (the Norse version of Zeus) is the brother of Hades and married to Hera, Hades sister. His assistance may have been obtained in Hades’ quest for Bo. Anyway, Bo’s dad is Hades, which is kind of cool, because a 1998 article by Margaret Matthews, titled IS XENA’S FATHER A GOD? YES! IS IT ARES? NO!, developed a quite well thought out theory that Hades was Xena’s father. Bo offers to help Persephone escape from the underworld, but after it is explained that she can’t do that for another few millenia, Bo takes Persephone’s moon candle, and uses it to light the path home.
Persephone and Bo
Earlier in the story, Lauren and Dyson dig up Kenzi. They revive her at the clinic, and Dyson returns to the gates of Valhalla to prevent them from closing and trapping Bo inside. Lauren and Kenzi discover that they have been followed by a spirit which writes ‘help’ on a steamed up glass pane, making them think it is Bo. One wonders why, since it turns out not to be Bo, it writes ‘help’ on the glass.
Kenzi and Lauren trying to deal with a ghost is funny but the best part of this episode is Stacey (Kate Corbett), the Valkyrie bully from Tamsin’s school days. She and Dyson have chemistry. What does one call this ship? Dycey? Dyson is free now, because Tamsin and he have declared themselves to be nothing more than friends.
Stacey is upset when Tamsin insults her hair. In this scene, Stacey is somewhat reminiscent of the Kitsune from previous episodes
Kenzi is off to Spain to live a Fae-free life, because Hale left her some land.
Home alone, Bo removes boards from a living room window and lights the moon candle, causing a lawyer in an elevator somewhere to become a vehicle for a beast from hell. The lawyer, played by Amanda Walsh, when she’s holding that candle, looks more than a bit like Celesta from Xena: Warrior Princess.
When Kenzi tried to make the ghost she thought was Bo visible, she gave it physical form. Later, when it attacks Lauren at the Dal, Kenzi shoots it. The ghost seems to have been Japanese, setting up the next episode, “Big in Japan”.

Thresa Healey as Hades sister and goddess of death Celesta, (who was entirely an XWP invention, and also carried a candle). Hades had no sister called Celesta. His sisters were Hestia and Hera. Thanatos was the Greek god of death.
Paolo Barzman, who directed LOST GIRL 5.1 and 5.2, also directs Episode 7 of M.A. Lovretta’s new series. KILLJOYS. The episode is titled Kiss Kiss, Bye Bye, and features Sarain Boylan (The Warden in Caged Fae) as Dr. Bliss and Sarah Power (Siobhan the Banshee in Fae Day) as the recurring character Pawter. KILLJOYS is currently filming, but as yet has no definite air date.
Amanda Walsh is Charlotte in the film MERCY, which was released in the US on 7 October, and is based on GRAMMA by Stephen King, a story written in 1984 and set in the Cthulhu mythos. MERCY can be streamed on Netflix (US).
