Wynonna Earp leaned into the fun before getting down to business during its long-awaited season four premiere.
The witty jokes kept coming in the first 10 minutes. I’ve always loved Wynonna (Melanie Scrofano) and Nedly (Greg Lawson) scenes, while they didn’t get in the garden, these two provided us with everything we’ve been missing from the show.
After Nedly and Wynonna failed to get into the garden, I was confused for about five minutes, but as the storyline progressed, you put the pieces together.
The writers certainly gave us a lot, all packed into one episode. Not only did they give us the fun we’ve been missing and address Doc (Tim Rozon) and Waverly (Dominique Provost-Chalkley) in the garden, but we also got a new storyline.
Dolls told us there were other places like Purgatory, but it always felt like the city was one of a kind.
Now we are learning about a new place, and this one has zombies. I think I’ll stick with the remnants, those creatures we could at least handle, well when we had Peacemaker.
It’s a new chapter in the Wynonna Earp story with Bulshar dead and Peacemaker gone, Wynonna has broken the curse, but now she has to save her sister and Doc.
I’ve compared Wynonna Earp with Buffy the Vampire Slayer many times. I feel like it’s the R version of Buffy. And in Buffy, the Scooby gang left their high school that was on a hell mouth and moved on to other things. That’s what this show is doing now. I’m excited to see where this garden story goes next. Mostly, I’m thrilled that we get to see where it goes next.
While the new storyline has piqued my interest, I was mostly enjoying having the characters back and seeing their chemistry again. The fun didn’t stop with Nedly and Wynonna. It was even more fun when we got Nicole (Katherine Barrell) and Wynonna back together. They remind me of those classic best friends like Serena and Blair from Gossip Girl. They fight all the time, but at the end of the day, they will be there for each other. And no better time to be there for each other than fighting zombies.
I have missed these action pack fighting scenes. They’re always intense, fun, and at times hilarious. It was everything I wanted it to be and more. Some of the best fight scenes are when Wynonna doesn’t have her gun because she has to be more creative, and we reap the awards from that.
I’ve always liked the chemistry between Doc and Waverly too. It sucks that they’re stuck in the garden, but it was comforting to know they had each other.
We have only scratched the surface of what Waverly being an angle is. The garden was supposed to want only human blood, but it seems angel blood makes it more like the garden we all have pictured in our heads.
2020 has been a horrible year so far, but with the return of Wynonna Earp, it’s looking up, at least on Sundays at 10 pm.
