Review: Wynonna Earp S4E1 “On the Road Again”

Wynonna Earp - Season 4
“On the Road Again” Episode 401 — Pictured: (l-r) Tim Rozan as Doc Holliday, Anna Quick as Young Willa — (Photo by: Michelle Faye/Wynonna Earp Productions, Inc./SYFY)

When season three of Wynonna Earp ended ,we saw Waverly, Doc and Wynonna going toe to toe with Bulshar, killing him, Waverly heading into the Garden and Doc headed in to save her.  Wynonna vows to get them back and then drugs the rest of her team to protect them. Before the first commercial break, a lot happens and we find out where everyone is and how they’re doing and it isn’t all good.

Kate & Nicole Nicole wakes up trapped on a moving train moving far away from Purgatory. After a quick tarot card reading, Kate believes the best course of action is to risk herself and open the shock doors to give Nicole a chance to escape and save Waverly.

Mercedes, Nedly & Wynonna Wynonna is on a Waverly hunt and tries to fling herself into the garden and falls on her face. Nedly gets shot and they return back to the homestead where they find VALDEZ carved into the wall but, Jeremy and Nicole are missing. They hear a sound and after a thrown knife lands in the wall next to Wynonna’s head they find Mercedes grabbing a bite to eat in the kitchen, and she can throw knives now. The merry trio heads off to retrieve Doll’s files for some intel into where everyone went and trade the best quips along the way.

Waverly & Dodidn’t end up together after the season 3 finale but, Doc manages to find her, chained to a post and in pain. Doc uses his vampire strength to free her and after a heartfelt embrace they head off to find a way out by trying a whole lot of doors.

Jeremy: Was scooped up by black badge agents with laser sites and used his Hail Mary play to carve Valdez into the wall to help Wynonna find a way into the garden to save Doc and Waverly or maybe a hint to where they were taking him?

Best Lines:

Wynonna explaining to Nedly where the rest of her team is and why they aren’t there to help her rescue Waverly

I drugged them at the kitchen table” –Wynonna

Well, that’s a felony” –Nedly 

….and, nary a dialogue  has summed up the awesomeness and allure of Wynonna Earp better.

Something New: Rachel, a teen looking for her mom who may or may not be a zombie… oh yeah, and there are ZOMBIES who might be standing in between Wynonna & Nicole reaching the door that leads to the garden and rescuing Waverly & Doc.

Episode MVP: Nicole! Sassy and plucky as ever, she also managed to keep it hella real when Wynonna’s genuinely happy to see you smile was met with a punch in the face because, Wynonna should know by now, you don’t drug your friends! She’s also so good at being level headed in stressful situations and under fire, has some of the best lines, injects logic into the ridiculousness of the crazy situations that come up and would do anything for the love of her life, Waverly, including jump off of a moving train and fight her way through heaven (or hell). How can you not stan such a complex written character?

Overall: I missed my weekly dose of wit, action, and hot mess action and this was the welcome back party that we hoped for. Sure the team is spread all over the place but, it’s a great reminder of why we love the show so much. Even though everyone is on their own adventure and dealing with their own perilous situations, they’re strong enough characters to make you hella invested in each and every one of them. Wynonna Earp is well written and the writers make sure that every scene is verbal perfection, the actors play their parts with such honesty and reverence to their characters that you forget that they aren’t real people. The whole team manages to create a world that is campy but, tugs at the heartstrings and makes you feel real feelings. The show keeps Wynonna, her struggles and triumphs, front and center while creating a space to fall in love and root for the rest of the ensemble in a way that gives everyone a favorite without taking away from the title character. While you may follow other character’s journeys and side quests the writers make sure to bring focus back to Wynonna without taking away from the other character’s lives allowing the viewer to get a full picture of the world as a whole. The only thing wrong with this season premiere was that it ended way too soon and the hour went by in a snap.  It has been such a long hiatus but, the creators made sure that it was worth the wait by offering up a masterpiece with another cliffhanger that makes sure we will come back next week and revel in all of this amazing shows glory.

SRP: $12.99

There’s a prison break at Black Rock and it’s a family affair! Wynonna Earp, descendant of the legendary gunslinger Wyatt Earp, and her whole family are members of the U.S. Marshals Black Badge Division-a unit dedicated to protecting the world from all things that go bump in the night. Two of their greatest assets in the fight against evil are the Division’s relative secrecy and Black Rock Prison, the only facility capable of holding major paranormal threats, and both were just exposed. That means it’s time for Bobo Del Rey, Wynonna’s old enemy, to step up his plans on a breakout to free his brother. It’s family against family as the Earp clan and the Del Reys go head-to-head in a rip-roaring, knock-down, drag out fight to escape the Bad Day at Black Rock.

Season 4 of Wynonna Earp premieres on SyFy Spring 2019!
