Wynonna Earp‘s “Crazy” spent it’s time analyzing and breaking down the reasons behind the actions of two very different women; Wynonna and Nicole. Wynonna, who has been on the edge lately, is a bit lost. She’s struggling with her actions, missing her child, and losing the love of her life, even if she doesn’t want to admit that last part. Basically, our girl is hurting and prepping for some major loneliness in her life once Waverly moves out to live in wedded bliss with Nicole.
Our ex-Sheriff on the other hand is avoiding everything and anything that has to do with her previous job. It doesn’t matter if she had the highest clearance rate of any Sheriff before her. She’s kind of pissed that after everything that she did for this town they could treat her like an outsider and vote someone else instead of her. And she has the right to be mad or butt hurt about about it. Hell, I would be too.
There’s a little bit of shame that both of these women carry. Wynonna is carrying shame for killing a man in cold blood, even if it was a preventative measure meant to secure the safety of her family. And Nicole is carrying shame for the way she conducted herself that led to the name Chicken Kicker. One is definitely more serious than the other but they still have brought these women down to a place where they feel stuck.
Nicole humbles herself in “Crazy” and lays her cards out for everyone to see. She comes to an understanding within herself that she messed up. Nicole let her pain get to her and she did things that she now regrets, including basically selling off Doc Holliday as a means of getting Waverly back. Which, totally surprised that everything got fixed with her and Doc simply because they talked and came to an understanding.
But back to Nicole. She found a way to live with what she had done and is now stronger for it. That’s why she’s Sheriff once more and why she was able to take control of the town in “Crazy” as a means of protecting them because she cares in a way that no one else does. There’s love, kindness, and acceptance in Nicole that things are going to be tough but they will be better now that she’s there to help.
Wynonna is another story in “Crazy.” She’s pushing further into the spiral that is tearing apart her life and keeping her from the love of her life and her daughter. That’s why she went after the genie and that’s why she doesn’t feel about it. She sees it as a preventative measure to make sure that no one hurts her, those she loves, or the people of Purgatory. But that’s not going to last for long.
There will come a point where Wynonna will meet someone even more dangerous but truly innocent. Maybe that dangerous person is already there in the form of her sister. And what will she do when it comes down to it and that innocent is could destroy the town as a whole? Will she stand tall and do what needs to be done? Or will she come down from her high horse and understand that preventative measures just create enemies all around?
Whatever happens next, we’re excited for more Wynonna Earp!
