Wynonna Earp is a strange show. It is based on a comic by Beau Smith about Wynonna Earp- the granddaughter of a famous lawman Wyatt Earp. She went back to Purgatory (a small town in the middle of nowhere) after years on the run being a delinquent. Together with her sister Waverly Earp, her black-ops partner Agent Dolls, her weird immortal guy friend Doc, Wynonna sends revenants (the demons her grandfather killed) back to hell with her gun peacemaker. Here is 5 reasons why Wynonna Earp is awesome:
Wynonna is a badass who kills revenants (demons) for a living
Reverants are causing chaos in town and they can’t be killed easily. Have no fear, Wynonna is here with her glow in the dark gun, The Peacemaker!
Wynonna Earp is a badass who gets shit done. Well…. most of the time, other time she just stuffs donuts in her mouth.
WayHaught (Waverly Earp and Officer Nicole Haught) is how lesbian relationship should be portrayed on TV:
The way WayHaught plays out is like a classic romance. The scenes, the way it plays out, it could have been used to form a love story between a boy and a girl. Instead it is between TWO WOMEN.
Warning: there might be some spoilers about WayHaught below.
Starting from the introduction, Waverly sprayed herself with water and had to take off her shirt, except she got stuck in it. Fortunately, Officer Haught (hot!!) was there to offer her service with her unwavering confidence and charming good looks, causing Waverly to stutter about her silly boyfriend.
From then on, it was all lingering looks, small touches.
Until Waverly gave in and confessed her love to Nicole.
And guess what? The show is pretty amazing at defying the typical trope associated with lesbian relationships.
And then in the midst of the Clexa controversy and when other show are killing off their gays, Wynonna Earp is purposely PRETENDING to kill off Nicole for no apparent reason only to reveal a minute later that she has a vest on. Because lesbians are smart, and they don’t deserved to die as a plot device!
And that is why I trust Wynonna Earp to portray the relationship between Wavery and Nicole in a positive manner.
Waverly-Wynonna sisterly love:
The sisterly love between Wynonna and Waverly is a little awkward, but we know that they love each other. And they’re adorable!
Parallel between Wynonna Earp and Supergirl
If you’re having girl-power withdrawal after the Supergirl finale, you are going to like Wynonna Earp! You already saw the sisterly love between Waverly and Wynonna, and the cute romance between Waverly and Nicole. But the similarities doesn’t stop here. Because you are forgetting the co-worker that the show tries so hard to make them a love interest but it just might not work. Kara acknowledged Jim and she are better as friends. Would Wynonna admit the same about Agent Dolls?
And don’t forget, like Supergirl, you also got surreal kick ass fight scene.
Amazing characters who have their own quirks, personalities, and secrets (or if you prefer- parallel between Wynonna Earp and Supernatural)
Dean and Sam from Supernatural kill demons, Wynonna and Waverly Earp kill revernents. And strangely enough, if you look hard enough, characters from Wynonna Earp and characters from Supernatural aren’t that different:
And they are all… strange, but awesome in that same way.
I am mostly joking about reasons 4 and 5 with the comparisons. For real though, the action scenes are cool in that comic book style on TV way, and the characters are three-dimensional and worth exploring.
Wynonna Earp is full of humor, strangeness, and action.
I am excited to see what goes on in Season 2. Give me more Wynonna Earp!
