WARNING: If you don't want to know what happened in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
Doc is now a full-blown vampire, having spent weeks hibernating with the Contessa. He can say goodbye to sunlight.
Meanwhile, as part of his retirement ceremonies, Nedley hands over the keys to his secret cache of supernatural goodies he's pinched off crime scenes.
While rifling through the cache, Nicole and Wynonna have a fight, and an artifact goes crashing to the floor. Was probably nothing, right?
Wrong. It unleashed this dude from the past.
Later, Haught is advocating for her own promotion as sheriff to the mayor of the town, Bunny Loblaw, a real crankypants. The mayor has serious doubts about Haught, and her predecessor, as she believes they've been covering up crimes (which they have). Wynonna busts in with official police businesses, and the mayor pits the two against each other, vocally considering Wynonna for the role as sheriff.
While Wynonna and Nicole are hashing things out in the kitchen, that stranger from the shed peeps through the window and scares the mayor half to death. When Wynonna and Nicole find her passed out, they believe her cat allergies acted up, and throw her in a patrol car to get her to the hospital.
The patrol car is invaded by two civilians, and driven away with the mayor in the backseat. That's probably a problem.
A drinking contest! If Wynonna wins, the Revs have to give up their prisoners. If they lose, they die. Wynonna fares pretty well, until the Rev leader learns that she's been spitting out her shots into a beer bottle. She and Nicole have to make a swift escape before they suffer the ultimate price.
Wynonna and Nicole, handcuffed, run all the way out into the forest to evade the Revs, who ultimately descend upon them all. The two do the best they can to fend off their pursuers, but it's that strange, unshaven man from before who guts the Rev and sets them free. In exchange for saving their lives, he wants one of them as his wife.
Jeremy and Waverly found the broken artifacts — a mirror (hence the bad luck befalling our heroes) and a broken gnome (hence the full-grown gnome pursuing them). It really all makes sense now.
Once Jeremy and Waverly are able to reconstruct the statue of the girl gnome, a bolt of lightning strikes, fusing it back together into the wife the gnome knew and loved.
Doc, feeling remorseful of how he treated Wynonna, decides to help her mom skip town and find Julian. To do that, he smuggles her a gun, some money, and the ID of a woman that the Contessa used up like a bloodbag.
And after things calm down, Wynonna has some big news for Haught: it wasn't Black Badge that saved her from the Cult of Bulshar... it was Sheriff Nedley. The guy whose job she's getting.
Nicole confronts Nedley on this new news — that she's got a father figure in him, and that she got Bunny's blessing on her promotion. It gets emotional.
Speaking of getting emotional, Waverly finds the note Michelle left explaining why she left.
The hole keeps getting deeper. Doc passes off Bulshar's ring to Wynonna, to keep her safe for when the demon comes a knocking. But that's not enough to keep from her asking questions about his new identity. Once she finds out, it's with a heavy heart that Wynonna bans Doc from entering her home ever again.
