Tim Rozon (Doc Holliday) is Nick Roman in THE SURREALTOR. Nick owns the Roman Agency, a realty company specializing in “metaphysically encased” properties. The Agency employs a research scientist (Father Phil Orley, played by Adam Korson), and a tech specialist (August Ripley, played by Maurice Dean Wint), who makes ghost detectors and other devices that are sometimes successful at ending hauntings. (Wint is also Marcie Diggs’ father in the CBC series DIGGSTOWN.) The main supposition seems to be that ghosts are part of the natural world and are subject to its rules. The Agency’s office manager is Zooey L’Enfant (Savannah Basley). Susan Ireland (Sarah Levy) is a realtor who does not believe in ghosts, and one of the first houses the Roman Agency will deal with is a lakeside property belonging to Megan Donovan (Tennille Read), a med student who inherited it from her grandfather.
The WayHaught love scene at the end has deservedly gotten a great deal of attention, but there are other very interesting things in this episode written by showrunner Emily Andras.
A stone throne, three crystals each with a different face, a force field, and replicator technology. All these things are present and suggest that The Garden in which Waverly (Dominique Provost-Chalkley) and Doc (Tim Rozon) find themselves is technological in nature rather than mystical. The throne reminds of the control chair from STARGATE SG1 (with wings added). Continue reading →
Mercedes Gardner (Dani Kind) turns up unexpectedly in Wynonna’s kitchen
The Garden where Waverly (Dominique Provost-Chalkley) and Doc (Tim Rozon) are trapped turns out to be a frozen wasteland. Doc finds Wynonna’s sister chained to a rock. The chains (she tells him) are tightening, and Doc discovers that this is because they are tied to a large, apparently organic mass which has been thrown down a well. Doc frees whatever it is from the well (he himself was freed from a similar hole in the ground some years previously) and takes the pressure off. There seems to be a general consensus that this strange unknown blob is significant. @EarperBex noted on Twitter (perhaps not entirely seriously): “…it reminds me of Beljoxa’s Eye from Buffy” (Beljoxa’s Eye appeared in Episode 7.11 of Buffy. It was a large, extra-dimensional creature with many eyes of many sizes. It could not see the future, only the truth of the present and the past.) @kko5572 speculated: “It looks like a gigantic version of the seeds that Bulshar was forcing down people’s throats in S3” and @gin_gasi suggested that it might be Jolene (the demon with a talent for baking played by Zoie Palmer in Episode 3.5, who was in the end absorbed by a tree).
