What's up with the sister? Is she possessed? Killing off Rachel Skarsten's character so fast seems a waste.

I loved Waverly's cheerleader routine.

Episode 2 was uneven, but it has hit its stride in Episodes 2 and 3. It's really just Buffy-ish now which is OK with me. And Waverly is pretty dame talented and hawt

Guess I am the only one still watching. Season 2 has been pretty excellent.

Why does Waverly think everybody is lying to her? Wynonna did not correct Waverly when Waverly said Wynonna saved her from drowning, but if Waverly believes that she has no reason to suspect Wynonna is omitting the truth about it.

Oh, props for Waverly in a bikini.

Johnnysd, I suspect a lot more people are watching but this show will never generate a fraction of the on-line heat that something like Game Of Thrones does. The Friday block of shows that is Killjoys, Dark Matter and Wynonna Earp is just wonderful fun to watch. No regrets being home on a Friday night when genre television is so much fun to watch.

What happened with Peacemaker at the end? Can Wynonna remotely activate it now? And it turned blue, not yellow, and didn't kill the target, just briefly "de-eyed" her.

Yes I love all three shows. I know Wynonna Earp has been renewed, waiting on the other two. All quality shows.

Loved the finale. Loved how they have fully embraced the Buffyish lingo. Really works well for the show.

You are right, these shows are just FUN.

I agree on the peacemaker question. Will be a mystery for next season. I like how they dont stretch out plotlines and mysteries too long like Waverl's possession.

I'm guessing it makes them human again.

That would explain why her "revenant eyes" went away.

Re: Wynonna Earp (SyFy) -- Series Discussion Thread

this is one of those shows I tried really hard to like and just couldn't commit to. I love westerns and the concept is up my alley but somehow it fell flat for me. Surprised to see its in the third season now.

Re: Wynonna Earp (SyFy) -- Series Discussion Thread

Looks like it got a renewal for season 4. I assume Waverly is the new guardian, which is why she was stuck. That doesn't explain how Julian could leave though. What's the current thinking on what "Paradise" really is?

Those were my thoughts exactly on this show. I'm assuming the extremely low budget fits Syfy's need to fill holes in their schedule.

Re: Wynonna Earp (SyFy) -- Series Discussion Thread

This show is maddeningly inconsistent. Last season ends with the mother staying in an RV on a mountain. They wait, no sheís been institutionalization the hole time. The show is filled with these type of things. In the finale Julianís sword canít be held by a corrupt soul but the big bad is waving it around like he just donít care. Maddening. The cast is the shows saving grace.

Future in doubt. Not because of SyFy. IDW is having financial troubles: https://deadline.com/2019/02/wynonna...fy-1202562901/

SyFy actually renewed this for 2 more seasons.

Re: Wynonna Earp (SyFy) -- Series Discussion Thread

I had no idea that IDW was actually shelling out the cash for this series which may explain their financial predicament. You would think they would know better than to use their own money as the old Hollywood adage goes always use other people’s money when financing your projects.

I love the show but if it can only continue by jettisoning some of the core cast for budgetary reasons I would prefer it to end. Wrapping things up in a film is always an option or a comic one shot or mini series could give the fans some sort of wrap up to the unresolved plot points in the last episode.

Interesting on the legal front.

I gave up on this series during the 2nd season when it appeared the focus was going to be soft porn.
It was too ridiculous for me to remain interested....

Re: Wynonna Earp (SyFy) -- Series Discussion Thread

Soft porn??? Was it the fairly discreet scenes of woman on woman action that bothered you? There were not a ton of these scenes in the show and again...no real nudity on the show. The LGBTQ community loves this show so I am curious if that bothers you. I am not trying to pick a fight, if you are more socially conservative than I am that is cool, I am just befuddled why someone would think this show is softcore porn, Game Of Thrones I could see someone making such a claim but this show, not so much.

I can care less if you are not as woke as the average millennial (FYI...I am not a millennial because I am 47 yrs old) as I am just looking for an honest answer.

In hindsight, my term "soft porn" is a little too strong.
It doesn't fit the definition.

The lesbian encounters began to define the 2 characters, bringing nothing to the overall story arc.
It was obviously meant to titillate audiences.

If IDW is having financial difficulties wouldnít selling the show to Syfy make sense instead of shutting down production? Everybody knows Syfy wants to own everything they broadcast.

So you are saying this show is a literal example of the saying "get woke, go broke."
