TV Review: Wynonna Earp S1E11 Landslide

wynonnaearp1-075f2Wynonna barely has time to digest the discovery she and her sister made in the Barrens when duty calls in the form of a gambler who was found torn apart in his hotel room. Meanwhile, Henry meets a mysterious stranger.

Wynonna Earp shows some improvement with this episode that begins to shake things up in an interesting way.

It was pretty obvious at the end of the last episode that the woman rescued from the cult was the thought dead third Earp sister. But how did she fire the gun? Why can Wynonna do so? This episode begins to answer some of those questions as it’s peppered with flashbacks as we learn more about Eve and the night she was taken and the Earp girls’ father was killed.

All of this leads to friction and a fight that gets captured on film and things begin to unroll from there.

There’s some good in Eve is very uneasy about the situation, but by the end of the episode she’s completely ok with the situation and where things are, no matter how odd it all is. It’s a rather quick switch that probably should have played out over a few more episodes.

Wynonna and Eve as a team though are entertaining and I finally feel like Wynonna could actually kick ass, though scenes are over the top.

The thing that really stands out is the mysterious Juan Carlos who deals with Henry and talks in riddles. This is something I can’t figure out, nor can I guess where Bobo is connected with Eve. There’s some good build up and mystery here as the episode is a vast improvement in every way from what’s come before.

Hopefully the series has figured out its stride and voice, and if it’s like this episode the series will be far more enjoyable.
