Wynonna Earp‘s “Better Dig Two” felt like a season finale. Honestly, I can’t help but wonder what else is there left to fight off or settle? The gang has saved Waverly, Wynonna has settled her issues with Doc, and black badge has essentially been booted from Purgatory. What else is there?
Well, besides Doc and Wynonna finding their daughter and getting her back. And a wedding of course. But they did such a good job in “Better Dig Two” that all I want next is mushy happy stuff with zero cliffhanger. ZERO. And with one episode to go, we’re going to distract ourselves by talking about everything we loved from “Better Dig Two.”
We know this might not be in the order that you expect, but we need to talk about Mercedes. Our girl is dying, bleeding out, and she’s down to be “sucked off” by Doc if it means surviving this wound. After all, Mercedes has always been made for greatness and now she’s part of a supernatural collective in Purgatory.
Mercedes humor was and forever will be one of our favorite parts of Wynonna Earp. Sure, Wynonna herself is pretty fucking funny. But there’s something about Mercedes that always made her stand out. Maybe it was her outfits or her blase attitude about what was going on around her when it came to the creepy and weird. Either way, we love her and glad she’s ok.
Then there’s Dark Waverly. That didn’t last long but it totally made sense. Dark Waverly appeared when needed to protect the Ghost River Triangle. And with Nicole swearing herself to be the shield that stands by Waverly’s side (*swoon with a side of “We knew you had it in you, Haught!*), Dark Waverly backed off because she got what she wanted.
But we can almost guarantee that this show isn’t done with Dark Waverly. Yeah, she might’ve chilled out and disappeared for now. But she’s part of Waverly, always has been, and when things go to shit once more, she’ll rise. Plus there’s the whole thing about the throne being empty. Someone’s going to have to sit in it and if not Waverly then who?
And finally there’s Wynonna Earp herself and Doc Holliday. Ever since what Wynonna did in 4A, there’s been a divide between them. And instead of talking about it, they separated from each other and dived deeper into themselves. That wasn’t healthy for either of them and it took almost dying for them to finally forgive and move forward.
They’re both changed people now. Wynonna knows what she did is wrong, that she needs to reel it back, and that she has the support system around her to make sure of that. And Doc, well he’s got a new lease on life that isn’t weighed down by the guilt of who he is as a person or as a vampire.
What comes next….well, we hope it’s a whole lot of fluff. This is what Wynonna Earp deserves, especially if this is the end. No cliffhanger, no will they/won’t they. And no disappearing on Nicole’s part in a twisted way to make it her turn because Waverly disappeared last time and left her alone for months on end.
We want fluff, weddings, and holding. Ohhhh and LGBTQ characters having a happily ever after or beginning to their adventure in Purgatory. Because you know that each day that they’re there will be full of family, fun, danger, laughs, and so much adventure that they’ll always be busy.
P.S. We thought we were done with this review but then we rewatched some bits of “Better Dig Two” and we realized we didn’t give Jeremy the credit he deserves. He put himself on the line for his brother. He was willing to die to protect Doc from himself and in turn gave us one of the best scenes of this show as a whole. Thank you Jeremy, for your strength, kindness, and big ass heart!
Wynonna Earp airs Fridays at 10/11c on Syfy.
