8 Thoughts and Questions from the ‘Wynonna Earp’ Season 3 Trailer
On June 8, the trailer for Season 3 of Wynonna Earp was released, giving audiences a 90 second teaser of what they can expect in the upcoming season.
After watching the trailer a time or ten for myself, here are some thoughts and questions I have about Season 3, premiering later this summer.
1. Some things never change.
Perhaps the entire show can be summed up by Doc’s words: “I feel it’s about to get weird.” Wynonna licking a potato is hardly the weirdest thing that’s happened on this show, and Wynonna drunkenly riding a mechanical bull and putting a bullet through the head of a revenant with Peacemaker are equally on brand. One of my favourite things about this show has always been that no matter how far it strays into the supernatural, it always brings us back to the unique humanity of the heroine.
2. And some things are bound to.
What’s with Jeremy’s moustache? That wasn’t there before, right? Is he trying to look like Doc? (Because that would be adorable.) Moustache aside, I’m excited to see what Season 3 has in store for my favourite science nerd.
3. What role will Michelle Earp play?
Season 2 ended with Wynonna Earp finding her mother, who is able to provide both answers and help. The questions are: what kind of help will Michelle be able to provide, why did she leave Purgatory, and how did Wynonna know where to find her? Months ago, it was announced that Canadian acting legend Megan Follows (Anne of Green Gables) has been cast as Wynonna’s mother, so it can be assumed her role will be anything but minor. We catch several glimpses of Momma Earp in the trailer: next to Wynonna in the beginning, and later holding Peacemaker.
4. Wayhaught are still going strong.
We found out in Season 2 that Nicole had previously been married, but this doesn’t appear to have a lasting effect on her relationship with Waverly, as the two are shown kissing in the trailer. The relationship between cop and demon hunter has been one of the most consistent things about the show since the first season, and I look forward to seeing it continue.
5. Who is Wynonna’s new boo, and what does that mean for both Wyndolls and Wyndoc shippers?
Wynonna’s relationship with the two main men in her life — Doc, the father of her baby, and Dolls, her part-demon, demon-fighting partner in crime — has always been undefined, and this love triangle (if you can call it that) is hardly conventional. Based on the trailer — where both Wynonna and Doc are shown kissing someone else — it seems that having a daughter together didn’t change the nature of their relationship, and there’s no indication yet if Wynonna and Dolls picked up where they left off before Wynonna told him she was pregnant. Will Wynonna pursue a romantic relationship with either of these men this season, or will she find someone else?
6. The ring and the medicine.
Back to back, we’re shown shots of Doc holding up his signature ring while standing inside a circle of dirt or ash and Dolls holding up a vial of his medicine while his eyes flash orange. Last season, Doc gave up his immortality and the ring that granted it — could he possibly be trying to get it back? Will Dolls ever be able to rid himself entirely of the demon inside him?
7. Will we see Bobo Del Rey again?
Everyone’s favourite revenant, who was killed at the end of Season 1 and resurrected again in Season 2, was missing entirely from the Season 3 trailer. He’s currently stuck down a well, but I don’t believe he’ll be trapped down there forever. If and when he makes it back to ground, what kind of havoc will he wreak?
8. Who is the man in the hat?
The mysterious new antagonist (it can be assumed) appears three times in the trailer: stalking towards Doc in the woods, a brief front-facing shot as he lifts his head, and facing down Doc and Wynonna in a barn. The last shot of the trailer is of him blowing smoke off his gun; whoever he is, he already seems to be a capable and frightening opponent. Is this the husband of the sisters who was brought back to life at the end of Season 2?
Season 3 of Wynonna Earp premieres July 20 at 9/8c on Syfy.
