Wynonna Earp 2x03

Okay it was a great episode as always but I have to complain about one thing: “I ain’t doing it for him.” Why was that necessary? Doc and Dolls have shown genuine liking for each other. Remember how Doc praised Dolls in ep 1 of this season? Am I honestly supposed to believe that he doesn’t care about Dolls’ well-being for Dolls’ sake just because they like the same girl? That if Wynonna somehow got over Dolls, Doc would lose interest in helping him? I’m so tired of the trope where romantic rivals only ever do nice things for each other for the sake of the person they’re in love with. I had actually been thinking of writing a post about how nice it was that Wynonna Earp hadn’t yet fallen into that trap, but so much for that :/

That said, this one line doesn’t cancel out the genuine regard for Dolls that Doc has shown in the past, nor does it cancel out all the good things about the episode. I just would be more content right now if Doc had said “I ain’t doing it just for him.”

Just… a reminder that you should always say goodbye, alright? Always say goodbye, don’t leave on a bad note, and if you love the person remember to tell them “I love you.” Even if it just a short trip down to the store or the daily route to work. Because accidents happen and you can’t control them. Life is scary that way. Those horrible scenes you see in the news, as terrible as it is, could happen to your friends and family.
I’m not saying you should be afraid. I’m never saying that. Because this is life, and life has so much good in it too. Just remember to say goodbye because it’s better than wondering later what the last thing you told them was. The last thing should always be love.

Writers: it’s just the way the story took us

Me:

Can we talk about American Gods? We really have a dark-skin black woman playing a Biblical Queen and a Love Goddess. We have Black People portraying Egyptian Gods. The lead of the show is black. They have West African Gods being portrayed on mainstream media. Seeing black people’s mythology and history represented on screen by black actors is a big thing. People aren’t even aware of nor regard the several figures in Abrahamic religions being African. .
