Wynonna Earp 2×02, AKA The One Where Literally Everyone but Waverly Knows Not to Touch the Goo

Many thanks to those of you to gave me such positive feedback on last week’s installment. I almost scrapped it all because who would think this was entertaining but me? I’ve never been so happy to be wrong. This is a little later than last week because my wife was finally home after three long weeks away, and my life is way busier when she is in it.

Previously on Wynonna Earp, the Purgatory Scooby gang got themselves up a Black Badge creek with no paddle (via a blood oath) — all except for Nicole, who is back to feeling like she can’t sit with the cool kids at the lunch table; we were introduced (and then…extroduced) to Tamsin Eliza; we saw Dolls get saved and then run; Doc somehow managed to turn down Wynonna’s offer of a co-ed shower; and we (and Nicole) realized that sweet little Waverly is suffering some side effects from that mysterious goo she touched. This week, Evelyn Andrews and company knocked our socks off with a shit-kicking episode two. Let’s jump in!

We open on Wynonna and Doc in the shower (guess he couldn’t resist her forever), sexy music thumping in the background. Talk turns to turnips and Revenants because these two kids can’t believe how hard it is to find one in the Ghost River Triangle! Like finding a Pride flag at the White House these days. Lucado, who likes to watch hot people shower, I guess, reads excerpts from Wynonna’s report and blames her for letting all manner of supernatural beasties into purgatory.

I…like your mustache quite a bit now, thank you. That is a top-shelf mustache.

Wynonna Earp 2×01, AKA The One with the Valkyrie in Her Underwear

So, despite my nonexistent track record with recaps, I’m attempting to write about each episode of Wynonna Earp for this here blog. They’ll be unnecessarily detailed, chock-full of random pop-culture references, and replete with screenshots and snark. They’ll take me way too long to write, and I have no idea if anyone will find them entertaining but me. But I like them, so I’m writing them. Hope you enjoy!

Welcome to the first post in my new series, Monica’s Unnecessarily Long and Detailed TV Recaps! My promise to you by the end of the season is that they will get better.

Previously on Wynonna Earp, Emily Andras blew our minds, Melanie Scrofano made all of the faces and gave us all of the feels, Tim Rozon and Shamier Anderson made all of the queer ladies question their sexuality, and Kat Barrell and Dominique Provost-Chalkley made us realize that we do, in fact, like the ladies and created a couple that made us willing to trust a show again in the process.

WE is back with a vengeance, and yours truly was lucky enough to finagle an early shift to watch it and live-tweet its premiere. I’ve made the questionable decision to recap/review/shout about each episode after it airs. Grab your whiskey, procure your doughnut, and make a salt circle for protection, Earpers, because here we go.

Many thanks to the writers for only making us wait about 3.7 seconds to realize Waverly didn’t shoot Doc or her remaining sister. I mean, we’d all seen the season’s footage and an educated guess would tell you that you couldn’t shoot Doc freaking Holliday and then do a sexy cheerleader dance (complete with sexy-yet-dorky finger guns) for your GIRLFRIEND, but still, good to know it was a Random Creature and not Sweet Baby Waves taking a page from either of her sister’s books and turning the gun on her family.

Waves and Doc run, Wynonna shows up and saves the day, then uses Peacemaker to dispatch Random Creature.
