WYNONNA EARP – Season 3 Episode 5 – SPOILERS
Jolene (Zoie Palmer) is a demon in disguise. Her charmed (or possibly drugged) baked goods make those who eat them see her as a trusted, long-time friend. (She is the opposite of that.) “I was born at the exact same time as you,” she tells Waverly. “The universe craves balance, and you came and arrived out of the light. And I, I crawled out of the muck. Everything good was given to you. Freedom, flaxen hair, family. And what did I get? Shunned, starved, reviled.” (Note the use of the word “born”, which might indicate that she did not just magically appear.) Waverly asks if they were twins, and Jolene responds: “Yes, In a sick sense.” Continue reading →
WYNONNA EARP – Season 3 Episode 4 – SPOILERS
It all starts with Robin (Justin Kelly) finding a bleeding tree along with clothes partly buried in the snow nearby. He calls it a “murder tree” and doesn’t explain further. Robin doesn’t notice, but the tree seems to have someone trapped inside it. (Is he hiding in there, or is he imprisoned?) Robin is a jazz historian working as a forest ranger and later in the episode Waverly will fix him up with Jeremy (Varun Saranga). But before that, Waverly asks Nicole if she’s gotten rid of Bulshar’s ring yet. She says she hasn’t. Then, once Waverly is out of sight, Nicole tosses the ring into the woods, just to be done with it.
The Shelterlands music festival massacre, at which everyone but Nicole died, happened in 1996, and Nicole remembers being already down by the river when the attack happened, and escaping in a canoe. Since Nicole was six years old at the time, it seems likely that someone who knew the attack was about to happen made a point of rescuing her. It might have been Michelle, or Ward Earp, or Bobo Del Rey, or someone else entirely. The question is, why, out of the entire crowd, was Nicole singled out to be the only survivor?
This is the second mention of a canoe on the show this season. A couple of episodes ago, we learned that Wynonna lost her virginity in one. Continue reading →
