Warning: If you don't want to know what happened in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
Wynonna is tasked with a solo mission to take down the Revenant known as Red, who was complicit in the killing of her father. He’s mingling at a club — if biting off women’s fingers is the new mingling.
Though Wynona gets some blows in, and makes a huge scene, the handgun Deputy Marshall Dolls issues her is ineffective when it comes to Revenants, proving that only Peacemaker is of any good. The demons escape unscathed.
In need of some firepower, Dolls and Wynonna trip to a remote field with a cache of automatic weapons to see which can come close to Peacemaker’s effectiveness.
Later, Red winds up at the Purgatory’s saloon where Waverly works, and it’s there he aims to wrestle Peacemaker from Wynonna.
But when he gets the gun in his palm, the thing fries his hand and he has to drop it. Wynonna picks it up, and puts a bullet between his eyes. And welp, Red’s dead.
While Waverly is cleaning up the place, new Purgatory police officer Nicole Haught (pronounced “hot”) comes into the bar to introduce herself to the bartender. They say that justice is swift, but not nearly as swift as the moves Haught puts on Waverly
When the Revenant boss man Bobo hears of how Red was vanquished at the hands of Wynonna and the unforgiving barrel of Peacemaker, he resolves to hire the Shadow Assassin Jim “Killer” Miller to take down the Earps
Meanwhile, Doc, uncharacteristically disguised in street clothes, goes snooping around Waverly’s apartment looking for whatever Earp goody he can get his hands on to appease Bobo.
After finding a small roster of the undead outlaws, he’s interrupted by Wynonna, who dropped in to find her sister. Instead Wynonna gets in a bit of a shoot out with Doc, who looks like a regular burglar. Doc’s a quick draw, and shoots the Peacemaker out of Wynonna’s hands before she can connect.
In order to beckon the Shadow Assassin, and get in Bobo’s good graces, Doc offers up a blood sample (let’s hope that knife was clean!). Throwing the booklet of outlaws’ names — bona fide Earp property — into the Shadow Assassin’s lair successfully calls him forth.
But there’s a caveat: because the booklet was technically Waverly’s property, the Shadow Assassin is headed for her.
After doing some mystical digging, Dolls learns that the Earp residence was built on a bedrock of mineral that tends to attract evil (whose bright idea was that?), and that somewhere on the property is a special talisman that could come in handy in warding off Revenants. But they've gotta find it quick - see that darkening sky? The Shadow Assassin is on his way!
The Shadow Assassin has arrived, living up to his name; and into one of his shadows went Peacemaker, the last place it should be.
While Killer Jim is occupied with mistakenly trying to kill Waverly, Wynonna shoots him from behind before blowing his brains out.
Levi the Revenant, who’s always lurking around trying to spot the action, tries to get his hands on the dug-up talisman. But Dolls wallops him good. Instead of killing him, Wynonna sends Levi back to the Revenant camp with a message: she’s going to “blow them all to hell.” She doesn’t mince words, this one.
When Doc returns to camp, Bobo initiates him into the Revenant fold. But first, he must hand down punishment on Levi, who has failed them all.
Doc ties Levi to a wheel which basically roasts him from the inside out, proving that he’s loyal to the Revenant cause. The wheel is on the other side of the Ghost River Triangle line, a line that all Revenants can't cross (hence Bobo's larger goal of "freedom" - meaning, he wants to get to the outside world). In exchange, Bobo promises to get Doc what he desires: The woman that ruined his life. But who is that?
