There’s no point binging and falling in love with characters, if they’re going to be dragged off our screens by the grim reaper. A show has to really sell me with the trailer to get me to make an exception, and Wynonna Earp did just that.
The eps fluctuate from being about demons of the week to potential long running plots and family drama, so again, not given the opportunity to get too comfortable. Our lovely friend Bobo Del Ray is a capable villain; never swallows up more screen time than needed, owns being bad, has some great one-liners and wisely, there’s no soppy story ordering us to feel sorry for the bad guy. Along the way we meet Nicole Haught, a Police Officer with the hots for Waverly, lose the dumb boyfriend and gain the supposedly dead sister Willa.
More LGBT characters and couples do need to be at the forefront of our screens, not in the background. As much as Waverly’s admittance of love was undoubtedly cute, it also doesn’t feel earnt to me because I haven’t seen anything on screen to suggest their relationship is that deep. Is it possible she only said it so Wynonna would hand over the gun? Possibly, but I doubt it.
