WYNONNA EARP – Season 3 Episodes 1&2 – SPOILERS
A busload of vampires comes to Purgatory to celebrate the resurrection of Bulshar, and runs into Sheriff Nedley’s speed trap. (They aren’t pulled over. They just stop in front of the Sheriff’s cruiser.) Nedley (Greg Lawson) quickly falls prey to their glamour spell and invites them into town. Did the Sheriff’s invitation give them free entry into every building in Purgatory, or just the Ghost River Triangle? (No one else grants them permission to enter, but they do.) What would have happened if Nedley hadn’t spent the night searching for speeders on the highway? Without Nedley’s invitation, would the bus have been unable to enter the Triangle?
The vampires kill sixteen people at Pussy Willows as the club was preparing to open. The way the bodies are laid out (and the runes carved in some of them) triggers a memory in Deputy Haught (Kat Barrell). She tells Wynonna: “Black Badge Division’s been tracking these massacres since the 1920s. They call it the Cult of Bulshar.” This makes Wynonna immediately suspicious, and Nicole continues: “It’s not like that. When I first heard the name Bulshar — when Faux Mercedes said it right before you shot the widows — it twigged something in me, like I’d heard it before. So I asked Dolls, and he gave me some old BBD files.” Later, Nicole begins to suspect that she might have once been involved with the Cult and suppressed the memory. Continue reading →
