WARNING: If you don't want to know what happened in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
Remember last week when the Iron Witch cast a spell that disappeared Wynonna, sent Doc back into the well, and made it so that nobody in Purgatory remembered either of them and everything went straight to hell? Well, it happened. Doc is saved from the well by one of his goons, because in this world Doc is a kingpin in charge of a Racket pushing all kinds of illicit substances. Basically, he's back to his old tricks.
But Doc is not the Doc everyone thinks he is. Whatever Doc he isn't has shackled Rosita and forced her to cook up drugs he peddles on the street. Realizing he has a lot to explain, Doc sets Rosita free and sets out to find Dolls.
Dolls is busy interrogating the captured Meredith Widow, whose magic is fading faster than her one-time good looks (that rash can't be cured with antibiotic ointment). Meredith is giving Dolls hints about what will happen if Wynonna doesn't return — aka complete ruin — but neither he nor Jeremy remember Wynonna, and so they're SOL ("shit out of luck", team).
And also in this world, Nicole and Waverly are totally NOT dating. Waverly is getting married to Perry (the hockey player who once promised his kidney for some quick wins), and Haught is still hot for Waverly, but has to keep her hands in her pockets.
When Doc arrives at Black Badge to try and jog Dolls' memory, he's immediately thrown into the glass cell holding Meredith. Strange bedfellows, these two. Doc's not in any real trouble because of Meredith's waning magic, but he is at risk of exposure to one bad case of halitosis.
Oh, and Bobo del Rey has been resurrected and thrown into St. Jude's mental hospital. In this reality, he's the Revenant that killed Waverly's family (Wynonna excluded), and Perry manages to track him down. Bobo piques Wavelry's interest with his knowledge of her past, so she listens to him.
So she springs Meredith free from her makeshift prison and they escape. There should definitely be more than three people working Black Badge at any given time. However, the unexpected incursion also gives Doc an opportunity to talk one-on-one with Jeremy, brief him on the rift in reality, and regain his confidence. Jeremy's on his side!
Doc, broken out of Black Badge, heads to Shorty's, where he aims to find one of the Earp sisters and get them back on his side. He's found by Dolls, who's ready to blow him into next Tuesday. But Doc is the fastest shot in the West, no matter the century, no matter the alternate reality...
Doc fires and Dolls is blasted in the side. Hot damn, that shot was not supposed to be THAT effective. But...guns. Ya know? Doc knows that once he fixes the reality issue, all this will go back to normal, everyone will come back to life, and no harm no foul. That's the plan, at least.
But Dolls, though down, is not out. And he retaliates by shooting Doc in the gut…a mortal wound. Before Doc "dies" he tells Waverly she needs to find the Iron Witch and reverse the curse. Then he checks out for the episode. Oh, why is Waverly wearing a wedding dress? It was her mother's, and she was prepping for her own wedding to Perry. That's going to have to be delayed...
Before Dolls died, he always wanted to see an out-of-the-way road on the edge of Purgatory beset on both sides by cold, pointy wheat. Not really. But that's where he ended up crawling to to breathe his last breath. Jeremy is very sad about Dolls' death. There, there, J-dog.
Waverly manages to convince Nicole, who would do anything for her crush, to take her to the Iron Witch (who's got a rap sheet). There, the Iron Witch lifts the "glamor" spell she cast on everyone for seven seconds. It's long enough for Waverly and Nicole to remember who they are, who Wynonna is, and what they need to do to fix this sh*t. See? Seven seconds is good enough.
Waverly breaks Bobo out of St. Jude's so that he can help her and Nicole get onto the Earp property, now crawling with Revenants. He's willing to do it, because Waverly is his angel. And that suit jacket of his is a few sizes too small. He needs a refitting. Onward!
Jeremy has approached Rosita to tell her that Dolls and Doc are dead, and that he has a conspiracy theory that might explain why everyone has forgotten their lives up to this point. Black Badge is contaminating the water supply with psychoactive suppressants — the stuff she's been cooking up at Holliday Haus. Jeremy, what are you smoking? Really? He manages to persuade Rosita with this crackpot theory, and they go to blow up the whole drug operation.
Meredith and Beth go hand-in-hand to try and resurrect Clootie a second time. Still no dice. They can't break the seal, and somebody's moved his body. It just goes to show you that sometimes it's really hard to bring things back from the dead.
Waverly and Haught are looking for the trophy that, if broken, will break the glamor spell. Just their luck, a bunch of Revenants are killing each other outside the place where that trophy's at — the barn.
Nicole and Waverly get into the barn and find the trophy. But they need to destroy it with fire and brimstone. How exactly? Well, Jeremy combines his plan to ignnite the drugs with Waverly's plan to bring ruin to the possessed plastic award to form this one = blowing sh*t up. Here's to hoping it works.
