‘Wynonna Earp’ S2. E11: Bobo is the Key

Jeremy goes to meet Black Badge’s asset on the inside: Rosie. He conveys news of Doc and Dolls’ deaths, as well as Doc’s “theory” about the tear in the space-time continuum. Jeremy and Rosie conclude instead that Black Badge has put mind-altering drugs in the town water supply. Meanwhile, the Widows try and fail to resurrect Sheriff Clootie because he’s not buried where they thought he was. One person knows where Clootie is, however: Bobo. As Bobo helps Waverly and Nicole (once they dig up the talisman, all the Revenants will be blown off the Homestead), the Widows appear.


And so they linked their hands and danced
Round in circles and in rows
And so the journey of the night descends
When all the shades are gone

Bobo, evading the Widows, enters the Homestead and an insurrection starts between Revenants loyal to Doc and those loyal to Bobo. Out of time, Waverly decides they need to get the trophy from the barn and run, which is when the episode re-aligns with the opening sequence. When Waverly and Nicole enter the barn, they find that Rosie and Jeremy have rigged it to explode in an effort to stop the perceived Black Badge conspiracy.


Perry calls to check on Waverly, who explains she’s in a barn wired to explode “and also I think I’m gay. Call you later?” (Nod to Willow in the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” episode “Dopplegangland,” in which she notes of her alternate universe self: “That’s me as a vampire? I’m so evil, and skanky… and I think I’m kinda gay.”) Outside, the carnage continues. The Widows catch Bobo, and Rosie leaves the barn only to be mowed down offscreen. Waverly realizes that death is the only way out. When the explosives go off, they’ll destroy the trophy. “Where you go, I go,” Nicole says. Nicole and Waverly kiss, then the three detonate the explosives.


Waverly, Nicole, and Jeremy are standing in the barn and their hair is ka-ray-zay. Waverly says the only way they’ll know if the spell worked is if they find Wynonna. Meanwhile, the Widows are threatening Bobo to get him to reveal Clootie’s location. Bobo, however, believes that Clootie is the only one who can guarantee that he won’t be sent to Hell again, so he willingly breaks the third seal. Moments later, Wynonna wakes up in the same field and watches as the Widows and Bobo walk past in the distance. She discovers that the third seal has been broken and hears Clootie awaken just as, presumably, her water breaks.


This was another solid episode, and I can’t wait to see how the finale goes. As a reminder, the show was renewed for a season 3, so there’s lots more Earping to come!
