TV,eh? What's up in Canadian television

Link: Wynonna Earp: Emily Andras talks “Walking After Midnight”

From Bridget Liszewski of The TV Junkies:

Wynonna Earp: Emily Andras talks “Walking After Midnight”
“I think it’s good for Wynonna to start getting some allies in town in addition to her boss, the guy she has slept with and her sister.
