While sweeping up her documents, Waverly comes across a tattered old photo of Doc Holliday…who looks suspiciously like the well and historically dressed stranger that’s been hanging around the bar lately. Either he’s returned from the dead, or he’s got the best plastic surgeon in Purgatory.
At the cemetery where her father and sister are buried, Wynonna interrupts a Revenant’s grieving process, which is at the stage of “Dig up the body of the person who can lift the curse that was put on you.”
Wynonna tries to send the Revenant back to the grave, even if it’s technically someone else’s. But he’s just too darn fast. Also, Wynonna recognizes this Revenant as one The Seven who were there the night her father died, and he’s looking as creepy as ever.
The Revenants have taken over the surplus store and former Bank of Purgatory, with Shorty and Champ as their hostages. You could say there’s a surplus of tension in that shop, but a shortage of backup.
Wynonna successfully breaks into the safe, wherein lies the locket of Stanley Gatewood’s deceased wife. All this for some flea market antique? This trinket seems to be the last puzzle piece to their scheme.
Since he’s the one nearest death to begin with, Shorty offers himself up for possession by the Revenants so that Wynonna can be spared. Although, once the Revenant is inside his body, he won’t go down without a fight.
And after a long day of fighting Revenants and having to kill her friend, Wynonna returns home to receive some uplifting, but equally surprising news: Doc Holliday has returned from the dead, and is ready to help the Earps in any way he can. Duuun!
