Tying up some loose ends from last week, the gang is definitely suspicious of the Widows - Mercedes and her sister. And Wynonna is certainly not playing nice or coy about it.
They’re also conscious that their plans have gone somewhat awry but they only need to break one more seal and then “out love burns bright and true”. Whoever that is. I’m going to say most likely not good.
There’s a moment here where Wynonna and Mercedes use the word “bitch” a lot to refer to each other - which is certainly more of a slur than we like to see on a show - but there’s an interesting moment where Dolls tries to join in with Wynonna’s repeated useage and Wynonna steps in with a “you can’t say that, that’s our..” It’s nice to see her making this point about reclaiming and who is allowed to call her and her friend that - but less nice that she has a pregnancy fainting thing to interrupt her.
There’s also another random weirdness this week - immortal ghostly deputies who have returned from their deep, dusty slumber to hunt down their mark - Doc Holliday - for terribad crimes he committed way back when. They let him know about this with a boy and a brand just so he can spend the whole episode on edge and give everyone the wrong idea. No, really, this whole plot line seems to be about giving people chance to bond and lecture people.
Dolls manages to get a doctor to examine Wynonna (once she confirms that Wynonna isn’t being held against her will): among other things she wants blood tests from both parents to check if anything’s up. That would be Wynonna and Doc.
Or Wynonna and someone anyway… because there’s another candidate for the father position. There’s lots of emotion, Wynonna being torn and Waverley completely freaking out which is really not helpful and to make it worse Doc is being all kind and understanding and saying he just wants Wynonna to be happy which means Wynonna bails telling Doc (especially after Waverley runs for the hills despite her pledge to support).
Points to Waverley on Doc’s emotions: “The more he feels, the less he says. Like a masseuse.”
Instead Waverley has Nicole follow Wynonna around until she can rejoin her. This seems convoluted but hey who cares because they are AWESOME together!
Poor Wynonna now has to be sober since she’s pregnant and she and Nicole are going to go find the man she slept with. Which mean going to a strip club and Nicole drinking for both of them.
Nicole is a hilarious drunk.
