Katherine talked about the fun of playing a different version of the character. Even if she doesn't know Waverly and is still married to Shae, she knows Waverly is going to be big in her life. Dominique said it was fun to explore the psychology of why a person is who they are and how siblings inform the way you are as an adult, so she could go back and reinvent who Waverly is and what would have happened if. Despite the fact that she's getting married to Perry, she still has this beautiful connection with Nicole, like star-crossed lovers. Emily: "You want to talk about fate and destiny and free will - this is almost the flip side of it. You really see that Waverly and Nicole are destined to be together. That in whatever alternate universe they are, they are dawn to each other."



Emily Andras sat down with EW and The TV Junkies to discuss 2X11.




Highlights:
[Spoiler (click to open)]
* When sorting out everyone's alternate story line, they tried to make it as flexible as possible, emphasize the emotion of it and the relationship they wanted. They weren't too hung up on precisely how exact it was, they just had fun with it. Two things that were important for them was for Doc to be the one to fight to rally everybody and the idea that Nicole and Waverly are somehow destined to be together in any universe, like soul mates.

* While they love the actor who played Champ, they're not huge fans of the character himself, so if Waverly matured, they liked the idea of her with someone who wasn't necessarily a jerk, like Perry. They also liked the idea that she still hasn't found herself- Wynonna showing up allowed her to really examine who she is and what she wants. So if Wynonna never existed, it might have taken her longer than anticipated to figure it all out, but just by being around Nicole was going to wear her down eventually and make her realize the truth.

* Doc is a character who lives in shades of gray more than any other character, Emily says "I honestly think Doc is almost a high-functioning sociopath on some levels" (WTF Emily?). Doc is super selfish, a consummate survivor who has been on both sides of the law, wherever it suits him. When he gets out of the well in S1, all he cares about is revenge, but his proximity to the Earp sisters, particularly Wynonna, re-teaches him love, affection and friendship. This exercise for Doc- if and when he comes back- will touch him the most.

* If they had more time, Emily would have loved to see some of the other Revenants without Wynonna there to put them down. It would have been interesting to see what other kinds of psychopaths were roaming around Purgatory.

* About the finale: [Spoiler (click to open)] It's going to shake out in a blistering finale. There are a lot of hanging threads that they're very excited to close off. We're going to get answers on a lot of things we've been waiting to find out all season. We will get some closure on maybe what Waverly is. The finale is really emotionally taxing, but at the same time it kicks off a new story for S3. It's one of Emily's favorite episodes of the year.






Highlights:

* At the end of the episode Wynonna appears to go into labor in the middle of a field, having just seen that Bobo has teamed up with the Widows, like everything on the show, she never seems to catch a break. The saddest part for Emily was when she woke up and had a moment of 'what if we just stayed here?' just a moment of peace that she so rarely gets. Melanie is incredible and the heart of the show, but Emily feels like the rest really stepped up their game in her absence. They block shoot and shot episodes 11 and 12 together and Melanie was due a week after they wrapped (she actually gave birth four days after they wrapped), so they had to make sure that if something happened (if she went early or was on bed rest) that they had a backup plan. They knew at the end they needed to give her a break.

* There will be some resolution with the pregnancy and the baby, there's a lot they still need to answer this season and there are some incredible surprises to come in the finale that hopefully make sense, but maybe we didn't see coming. Emily thinks there's a lot of potential for S3. Bobo is terrifying and the Widows are terrifying (debatable) so together it's a whole cataclysmic situation, and the one person tat could take them out might be going into labor. About Robert turning into Bobo, Emily says that the horror of the curse and torture and torment of hell can make even the best person go bad, even if your intentions are pure.

* Michael Eklnd (Bobo) is so off the chain and the other actors love working with him because he's so committed and gives them so much to play off of. Michael tries all kinds of crazy stff, but Dominique never breaks in the outtakes and she can match him. Michael has an enormous presence and charisma and they're happy he's back. They wanted to use music a little differently in this episode because it was an alternate universe, so it gives the episode some fun and energy. Emily talks a bit about the song choices this episode- when Bobo leaves the Insane Asylum and the song when Waverly goes to give Nicole her lunch.

* We should be worried about Doc, Dolls and Rosita dying in the alternate universe, some things still survived from that universe, like the Widows and Bobo working together, the third seal being broken and people still having their memories of what happened. We only saw Jeremy, Nicole, Waverly and Wynonna, finding our people is going to be a huge problem and challenge. Doc dying and calling Waverly 'baby girl' was the last scene they shot this year and had them all crying on the sidelines.

* WayHaught are soulmates and destined to be together. Destiny can be a cold, hard mistress and not give you a choice, but it also has plans for these people that are sort of magical, their connection is universal. Because of Mel's pregnancy, they lost a lot of script writing time and didn't have time to sit down with actors and tell them exactly where their characters were going, like Dani and Meghan (Mercedes and Beth) and had to just go with it. If you want to have fun villains, you should let them loose and give them room to play, but at the same time we need to see what they're truly capable of and the danger involved. About the finale: [Spoiler (click to open)] It's really powerful and moving. Every single person on the team, still alive, gets a hero moment, gets to make a choice that really defines who they are and who they want to be. It's really about the team coming together and making sacrifices, but as always it's really about Wynonna deciding, wherever she can, what her own fate is going to be. There are two moments in the finale that had Emily bawling (she says she doesn't cry often at scenes, due to reading the script in advance many times), one of them really defines the Earp sisters for Emily.
