When her uncle dies, Wynonna Earp returns to her hometown and reluctantly takes on her role as Wyatt Earp's heir: demon hunter. With help from her sister Waverly and U.S. Deputy Marshal Dolls, she must battle the resurrected souls of the criminals her great-great-grandfather killed.
- Kris: I liked it! I've watched it three times now, and I've liked it more each time. It does feel a bit bogged down with exposition, but it serves its purpose well, because I'm really excited about the next episode (and the rest of the season).
- Stephanie: I liked it pretty well. Like Kris, I liked it better on rewatch. I thought it had some issues that are almost always there in pilot episodes, but it had several things going for it, including good dialogue, likeable characters/actors, and great music.
- Annie: I thought it was pretty good. There’s some talky parts that have a bit too much exposition, but it’s a solid pilot episode. I really like Melanie Scrofano in the title role — perfectly cast! Looking forward to finding out more about Doc Holliday and the dynamic between the Earp sisters.
- The scene between Wynonna and Doc Holliday was intriguing and brought out Wynonna’s conflicted feelings about her ancestor. However, Stephanie wonders if the big Doc Holliday introduction could have been put off until episode 2 to give the pilot a bit more breathing room. Kris and Annie say no.
- The scenes between Wynonna and Waverly were pretty great, and the exchange between them when Wynonna arrived at the big showdown was a favorite.
- Stephanie really enjoyed Shamier Anderson as a scene partner for Melanie Scrofano, but Dolls sadly received little character development.
- Loved the “Purgatory: You won’t want to leave!” sign
- Nooooooooo! Not revenants!!! We're not big fans of zombies, but these revenants don’t seem to be very zombie-like. What purpose are they going to serve in the storytelling?
- Why’d she have to blow up the motorcycle?!?
- The tongue pulling was acceptable. Waving it around was pushing it. But did he really have to step on it???
- Where is the show taking place? Wynonna makes a comment that Dolls doesn’t have jurisdiction in Purgatory.
- What exactly is Doc Holliday? He’s clearly not of this time. He is hanging out with the revenants, but is he a revenant? Is he friend or foe to Wynonna?
- Did Stupid Carl actually die? And for that matter, the dude on the motorcycle? They weren’t shot with the Peacemaker.
- Do all Earps get demon-hunting powers on their 27th birthday? Or is only one Earp “The Heir” at a time?
