WARNING: If you don't want to know what happened in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
Last we left Charlie, he was lying cold and dead on a slab in the morgue. He's still there, but Waverly puts her hand on his hest and, with the power of Bulshar/Julian's ring, she brings him back to life. Definitely unexpected!
Waverly, spooked, has run off into the woods, to occupy herself with the mysterious stairs that lead to Eden. Wynonna doesn't want her getting into any trouble, especially since there's no bannister on that stairwell! To prevent her baby sister from doing anything stupid, Wynonna knocks Waverly out cold.
Wynonna, who doesn't know Charlie has mysteriously been brought back from the dead, asks him to drive an abducted Waverly far from the Ghost River Triangle and detain her there until this whole apocalypse thing blows over. There have been bigger requests... but not many.
Doc has wrangled a couple of kinky townsfolk to bare their necks to slake his and the Contessa's appetites. It's a great bonding experience. For all of them.
Bobo's old Revenant buddies drop by the deserted police depot to raid the place of its munitions. Bobo entreats them to let him out of his cage, even gives them some valuable information — that Wynonna no longer has Peacemaker. But they're through with him.
The Revs beeline it for Wynonna, whom they round up and prepare as an offering to Bulshar. Like a present.
Charlie takes Waverly to the greenhouse, where there's a really creepy stone angel. Just looking at them. This is perfectly harmless.
To bide the time, the two decide to trade stories. Waverly talks about Nicole, and how much she loves her. Then she asks Charlie to talk about his past. For some reason, he can't remember anything before he came to Purgatory. But then Waverly touches his hand with the ring, and his memory starts to flood back.
Doc and the Contessa bled their human blood bags dry, and Doc is still hungry. But he wants one meal in particular: Charlie. So he drops by the firehouse to get the chief to squeal on Charlie's twenty. After the chief gives away Charlie's coordinates, Doc shoots him and the Contessa in the process. Why? Doc isn't in a mood for giving answers.
Looks like the Revs have shanghaied Mercedes into their service as well, and by service, we mean service. She and Wynonna are handing out drinks at Bulshar's soiree. #waitressstyle
But when Bulshar sees Wynonna nearly give herself up, he goes a little cuckoo, and demands that she be thrown into a cell. Hmmm....
After Waverly's touch, Charlie is hesitant to reconstruct his memories. He's been here before, he knows this place, and he knows Waverly. In fact... he's her daddy. He's the angel Julian! Which might explain why Doc is obsessed with his blood.
Once inside the cage, Wynonna manages to convince an ambivalent Revenant and Mercedes to unlock the door, and then she gets to work. She strips herself of that suffocating, ugly, dress, and with nothing but a large hairpin for a weapon, prepares herself for a counterattack.
Doc finds Waverly and starts to rough her up because he believes (rightly) that she's hiding her father, Charlie/Julian. Julian makes a grand appearance, and protects his daughter, throwing Doc across the greenhouse with one toss, knocking him out. Angel powers to the rescue!
And then this happens.
Wynonna breaks out of her cell, and gets the rest of the Revs on her side. After all, a dead Bulshar will bring the rest of them down too. Moreover, Wynonna's discovered Bulshar's weakness: he can't touch her. So he ops for the second-best defense... disappearing.
Wynonna, the Revenants, and Mercedes, make their way to find Bulshar. And 86 him for good.
And, with nowhere else to turn, Bulshar resorts to enlist the abandoned Bobo as his personal assistant. Bobo, with nowhere else to turn as well, accepts. We'll see how this plays out...
