TV Review: Wynonna Earp S1E7 Walking After Midnight
Guests at an engagement party hosted by Waverly are put in grave danger as Henry remains focused on having his revenge. Meanwhile, Wynonna teams up with an unlikely ally to investigate a killer who’s targeting young women.
Wynonna Earp actually continues to improve this episode with a focused one that mostly has to do with Waverly and Henry. The episode really dives into Waverly herself and does an interesting examination of the character and provides lots of depth. The episode is her spotlight adding a lot and going far to make the character more interesting and well rounded.
There’s also a murder going on that Wynonna teams up with Haught to try to solve. That part is left open and dangling for another episode. Out of all of the actors and characters, Haught is the most interesting and talented. The episode really shows of Katherine Barrell‘s abilities on the screen and dammit, she’s the best actor on the show! There’s also something there with the character that I think it’s pretty clear what it is, but I want the show to just go with it.
Finally there’s a plot with Dolls getting dragged in by his superiors. It’s a little silly since he’s been doing his thing for how long? And now he’s being called in by his bosses?
The episode’s more focused plot helps it a lot with most of it taking place at Wynonna and Waverly’s home. It has a good look about it, something that’s not consistent on the show. Most importantly, the tone is very consistent throughout. It doesn’t try to smash in to much together as if it doesn’t know what it wants to be. There’s a clear vision here.
Hopefully the show continues to improve. This is the best one so far by a long shot and shows off the potential of it all. And the ending! It’s a good one!
