Season 2 of Wynonna Earp raced out of the starting gate, ran 12 furlongs at fun speed, and won everything.
“Steel Bars and Stone Walls” began seconds after the closing of season 1. Waverly (Dominique Provost-Chalkley) shoots a monster, not Wynonna (Melanie Scrofano) or Doc (Tim Rozon). One cliffhanger down.
Wynonna went to Dolls’ (Shamier Anderson) motel room to find clues to help get him out of Black Badge prison. She found Eliza (Rachel Skarsten). Yes. Rachel Skarsten from Lost Girl.
I’m sure it didn’t go quite like this, but
Wynonna and Eliza have a great fight, throwing each other against walls and doing all sorts of thrilling underwear-clad moves. Then they team up to go rescue Dolls. The bad part of this wonderful surprise was Eliza only made it through one episode. Alas, filled with lead by Agent Lucado (Kate Drummond).
If series creator Emily Andras is going to bring in more secret guests from her days on Lost Girl, there’s a certain succubus and her sidekick who would make swell surprises, too. (Never hurts to ask.)
Here’s the rest of the action, minus a ton of details. Doc’s hat gets eaten by a monster. They rescue Dolls, barely. Waverly tastes funny now that she’s infected with black monster goo and Officer Haught (Katherine Barrell) doesn’t like kissing her anymore. Waverly can use her valkyrie eyes (hat tip to Rachel Skarsten all along with the valkyrie eyes?) to scare off the new monsters invading the area. Melanie Scrofano does great crying.
The last surprise was the appearance of Kevin Hanchard from Orphan Black playing some bigwig in BBD who decides to give Wynonna a chance to use heir powers to help clear the area of monsters and demons. Wynonna, Waverly, and Doc join BBD with bloody thumbprints.
I love having Wynonna Earp, Lost Girl, and Orphan Black all mashed up into one great kaboom of a night. Such riches.
Action packed, hilarious, and unleaked surprises. How could a fan ask for more?
