Wynonna Earp Let’s Pretend We’re Strangers Recap
In the meantime, the demon-possessed Wynonna ties Waverly to a chair and taunts her while refreshing herself with the grossest Bloody Mary ever made (it includes a rat as an ingredient.) Before Demon-Wynonna can go to work on little sister with a hacksaw, Doc shows up, and she decides to go into town with him to start the work of spreading the demon plague.
Waverly is rescued by Dolls, now fully in control of himself, and after convincing the former black badge that she is no longer possessed, to set out to find Wynonna and restrain her. However, before that can happen, Lucado arrives, and she and Dolls have a fight until Waverly convinces them to stop with a shotgun.
Fortunately, Doc soon guesses that Wynonna is possessed by noting the atypical way she takes her coffee. The possessed Wynonna is thrown into one of the county lockups until the rest of our heroes figure out what to do with her.
Jeremy ascertains that the collector’s plate that was recovered in the previous episode had a painting of a symbol embedded in it, the same that is at the fire station. The fire station, by the way, is on consecrated ground and therefore not safe for demons to enter.
To create an anti-demon vaccine, Dolls takes a finger from the possessed Wynonna. In the process of analyzing the finger, Lucado touches it and, as a demonic force tries to possess her, her head explodes. While this is happening, Waverly entices the demon out of her sister’s body and back into hers.
The final confrontation takes place in the barn at the Earp Ranch. First, Team Wynonna have to persuade the demon-hunting firefighters not to deal with possessed Waverly their way. They do so by handing over the plate. Then, having drunk the anti-demon potion, Wynonna enters the barn, wrestles her sister to the ground, forces the potion down her throat, and then shoots the demon with Peacemaker when it is forced out.
The twist ending of the episode is that Wynonna is pregnant. That condition is going to prove to be a complication on so many levels.
