Wynonna Earp Season 2 Episode 12 Review: I Hope You Dance

at .  Updated at . Comments

We got us a baby girl on Wynonna Earp Season 2 Episode 12, and these tears of joy aren't just because it's healthy, but because Alice Michelle is a Holliday.

Yes, people, Doc is the daddy!

Time Is Running Out - Wynonna Earp

Not that we ever thought anything different, right? A tiny Earp revenant would have made Wynonna's life much more complicated than it needs to be. 

While it was heartbreaking watching her and Doc say goodbye to baby Alice, it was for the best.

She's going to be safe, and they can go on with the business of demon hunting without having to worry, though demon hunting is probably an understatement at this point.

The big bad is coming, and the team is going to have to pool all their resources to deal with it. The Widow sisters may be gone, but they left something horrible behind.

Oh, look, sister. An Earpitizer for both of us.

I was a little confused about the whole Clootie/Balshar thing, but I guess that Clootie is Balshar and somehow Wynonna's mom (another surprise) was involved with him.

But if Balshar is as old as the hills, how can Wynonna's momma still be alive? Could Wynonna's mother be some sort of witch? That wouldn't make any sense, but the idea that Wynonna's mom is alive is extremely intriguing.

Doc - Wynonna Earp Season 2 Episode 12

Why is Wynonna hiding her? Is that who Wynonna was living with before she returned to Purgatory on Wynonna Earp Season 1?

We were never told that Wynonna's mom wasn't alive, only that she left when Waverly was a baby, but it was assumed (by me at least) that the mom was dead.

Whatever Balshar is, Nicole and Dolls know about it, and for a team that promised not to hold any more secrets, it sure looked like those two were holding the biggest secret of all. 

It could be that Wynonna told them what she knew and asked them to keep it from Waverly so she shouldn't worry. That seems like something Wynonna would do while she went to visit her mother to find out more information.

But do Nicole and Dolls know about Wynonna's mother?

And here I was hoping to not be dead for a few more hours.

It seems that it might be how it is, but this is a huge secret, and Waverly might not be so forgiving once she finds out. And you know she's going to find out!

It was disappointing that Bobo stayed on the dark side. I truly believed that he was going to help Wynonna and the team not work against them, but he did and got what he deserved. He isn't Waverly's father, so that's a relief, but it doesn't clear up Waverly's parentage. 

Waverly's DNA results showed she's not a blood Earp, which she shared with Wynonna earlier, but Wynonna didn't want to hear it. In Wynonna's mind, Waverly is and always will be an Earp. Blood or not.

And we now know that Waverly's not a revenant, either, which begs the question as to what is Waverly exactly?

Waverly - Wynonna Earp Season 2 Episode 12

At Wyonna's command, Waverly was able to use the peacemaker on Rosita (though it didn't kill her), but when she did, the peacemaker turned blue instead of yellow. The only other time that happened was when Wynonna killed Willa.

I'm not sure what it means, but there has to be a connection to the whole Balshar mystery. Could Rosita be related to Waverly somehow? 

And unless I was imagining it, Waverly's hand sizzled a bit after using the peacemaker, so what does that mean? Could Waverly be some sort of special revenant that is immune to the rules of all the other revenants? 

Bobo seems to have broken the rules of revenants since he came back from hell, so it seems possible.

There's some reason Waverly is with the Earp family. Could it be similar to Alice Michelle's situation? The Earp's taking Waverly to protect her from something or someone?

There are so many questions and so few answers! And we have to wait how long for Wynonna Earp Season 3?

What did you think of the season finale of Wynonna Earp? What are your theories on Balshar and the Peacemaker?

What was your favorite moment of the finale?
