When he says that he'll die before he tells her, Mercedes tells him that he'll do both and Beth comes up behind Juan Carlo sand bites him on the shoulder.

Wynonna leaves without wanting to see it, going out past Dolls who brought her there. The doctor gives him Wynonna's confidential file, and he runs out in time to see someone taking Wynonna off in a truck... and blood on the ground.

Dolls goes to the sheriff's office and tells Neadley what happened. He asks her to run the truck's plate. The sheriff discovers that it's not in the system, and has Dolls describe the truck.

When Waverly points out that Wynonna isn't big on parties, Rosita says that Doc mentioned that Wynonna was worried about becoming a mother, and Waverly and Nicole agree. Once Rosita leaves, Waverly takes in the fact that "they" are doing it.

Dolls brings Evan in and tells him what happened, and asks why Juan Carlo did. Evan figures that Wynonna went with Juan Carlo of her own free will, but Dolls tells him that it's bad. Dolls' phone rings: it's Wynonna, who says that Juan Carlo had some things to discuss with her. She says that she's at a cross roads, and Juan Carlo takes the phone away from her when she tries to tell him that she's at a church. Meanwhile, Dolls realizes from Wynonna's clues that she's at a church, but Evans doesn't care. He says that the Order has only been tasked to protect the Triangle from demons. Dolls insists that the Order will need allies, and Evan finally gives him the address of the church near Juan Carlo's chops hop.

At the church, Juan Carlo tells Wynonna about Waverly's text that she wants Wynonna at Shorty's. Wynonna draws Peacemaker on him, and he points out that she came with him voluntarily. He explains that he can't tell her answers because of his curse to survive and witness, but never decide. However, he can show Wynonna wants to know but she must go willingly. Juan Carlo tells her to go into the church with Peacemaker and a badge, place it in the center of the mark he made, and read the words on the badge the sun sets. He says that the Earp sisters will be reunited before sunset, and tells her that it will show her a shitload of things.

Wynonna enters the church and performs the ritual. There's a sudden wind but nothing else seemingly happens. She goes to Shorty's and sees Doc at the bar.

Everyone laughs as Doc insults Bobo, who introduces himself and says that the sheriff in Purgatory is a madman. Wyatt wants Doc to ride with him to Purgatory, and Doc says that Purgatory is a lost cause. He tells Bobo to go to hell, and Bobo says that he would ride to hell and back for Wyatt, and once Doc would do so as well. Bobo walks off, and gunshots ring out. Everyone goes out to see what happened, and Wynonna wonders if she should risk going as well. She finally chooses to go out, and sees a horseman ride off.

Juan Carlo tells Dolls that Wynonna needs to see the past to save the future. Dolls goes in and tells the comatose Wynonna that he's there.


Juan Carlo and Constance put the widows in a box and seal it shut. Constance says that she has priorities and if her demon husband gets then she'll be running for her life. She explains that with the use of her wedding ring, they can create the seal and tells him to put it on holy ground and it will keep her husband locked away. The three of them leave, and Wynonna follows Constance.

Dolls goes out and asks Juan Carlo how long it will take. He says that he was granted immortality like and got a few other perks, and isn't allowed to interfere.

Constance leads Bobo to the well where Doc is trapped. He begs them for help, and Constance tells Bobo that her vengeance on Wyatt means that she made Doc immortal and trapped him to suffer.

The widows feed on Juan Carlo.

Doll remembers his past with Wynonna and wakes up out of the coma that the Widows put him in. Summoning his dragon self, he shakes off the rest of the spell, goes to the church, and drives off the Widows. Juan Carlo begs him for death, and Dolls shoots him and then goes into the church. He barricades the door and then collapses in pain from the aftereffects of the spell. Clutching at his head, he tells Wynonna that it would be a good time to wake up.

The Widows realize that Dolls has claimed sanctuary and they can't open the door. They set the church on fire.

Bobo lies in the church, dying, and Wynonna can only watch. He sees her as he dies, and believes that she's his guardian angel. Wynonna coughs and hears Dolls yelling at her to wake up. Bobo begs her to save him, insisting that he's a good man, and Wynonna points out that he left Doc to suffer in the well. She figures that Bobo was jealous and left Doc to rot, and Bobo confesses but says that it was a moment of weakness. Wynonna calls him Bobo, and says that will be his name when he's resurrected from Hell as a revenant. She sees Peacemaker lying nearby and aims it at Bobo, and the barrel glows. Bobo recognizes it as the gun that killed him, and Wynonna lowers the gun and says that she's trying to remember how much Bobo loved Wyatt.

Wynonna continues coughing and Bobo figures that she's dying because of him. He holds her, able to touch her because he's dying, and promises that he'll never hurt her no matter what form he takes. Bobo asks what his angel's name is, and Wynonna says that it's "Waverly." He promises that he'll remember, and Wynonna passes out. Bobo runs to the church bell and rings it.


In 2017, the firemen try to put out the burning church while Dolls begs Wynonna to come back to him. She finally starts breathing, and Evan says that the firemen came when they rang the bell. Wynonna says that it was Bobo.

The next day, Waverly stands by the frozen pond and looks at the DNA report. She remembers that it was Bobo that rescued her from the frozen lake when she was a child.

Later at the homestead, Dolls and Wynonna lie in bed and Wynonna says that Doc's ring is the third seal. She explains that Clootie the demon will rise if the Widows break the third seal. Dolls points out that she clinically died for 77 seconds, and Wynonna says that she saw Bobo when he was a man. She wonders if the curse was renewed when she died, but laughs off the idea because she was dead so briefly.

Out in the wilderness, Bobo emerges from his grave.
