I love Wynonna Earp so much more than I did before the latest episode.
I was already really into this show and loving every episode of Season 2, but after watching “Let’s Pretend We’re Strangers” it is officially my absolute favorite show airing right now. I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to be a woman and watch writers on a show you’re watching make a female lead character pregnant and then throw the character’s personality right out the window (like when Alias’ Sydney Bristow got pregnant and stopped being the bad-ass agent we loved and ended up sitting around being lame all day). But Emily Andras (Wynonna Earp writer) isn’t doing that with our crazy, snarky, fun and hardcore heroine Wynonna. Instead she is keeping the main characters amazing charm and I am confident Wynonna will remain our #womangoals baby bump and all.
Every woman who has been pregnant knows how annoying and intrusive it is when people are constantly telling you what you can/can’t do, how you should act, what you should say and what you should not say. Now, I’ve never been pregnant myself but I have watched friends and family go through the motions and I can tell you that just because they have a tiny human growing inside of them, it doesn’t mean that they’re going to stop being who they are. Being pregnant doesn’t make you a wimp or change your personality at all (you know minus the hormone changes later on when you flash from happy to angry to sad really freaking quickly) and most of my friends still enjoyed doing the things that they loved. I’m not saying that you should be guzzling down liquor and hacking back cigarettes or pill popping, I’m just saying that women don’t become boring when they find out they’re pregnant. They still do whatever they want, they just do it carefully.
Wynonna has always been someone we could count on for not giving any f*cks and being herself unapologetically. I am so happy that we get to watch her and how she’ll deal with growing a little person all the while kicking demon butt and whatever other supernatural creatures come her way. Also have you ever had an actual conversation with a cranky pregnant lady? They can totally kick ass, and are ready to if any random stranger even tries to touch their big belly with their smoky hands (why do strangers always want to touch pregnant bellies? #creepy)
I am happy that the show has Emily Andras to rescue any scenario that comes her way and to do it in a way she knows her fans will love. Even though Melanie Scrofano was worried to tell the crew about her pregnancy, I’m positive it will be one of the best things to happen to the show.
It will definitely be exciting to watch how Waverly, Doc and Dolls (oh my God) react and the support that they (I’m sure) will show Wynonna.
I can’t wait to see how our crazy woman handles the news on the next episode; Whiskey Lullaby (which airs this Friday the 14th at 10:00 on SYFY)
