Really loved the meet-cute between Waverly and Sheriff Nicole at the bar in this episode.

Officer Haught is definitely int the top three reasons to watch

Officer Haught has finally made me understand the hot cop thing. Wow. I spent this entire episode screaming for Waverly to dump Champ already.

Lol - "Special Deputy! Special task... ... CRAZY CHICK WITH A GUN!"

Using Meteor Crater National Park as a site of US Gov blowing up a bunch of revenants is really cheap/ weak.

It's a little bit weird that the producers felt the need to introduce Officer Haught and Waverly's wardrobe malfunction. It just feels unnecessary and and felt like "gamergater" food/ reward pellets - to appease them against a strong-ish female lead and her retinue of female henchmen/ subservient-male-supervisor.

The Waverly character is... interesting.

White-patch beard-guy feels like a touchstone for Richard Moll who was the baddie in the pilot for 'Highlander.'

The shooting-guns-out-of-hands... I hope that isn't a recurring thing to temper the inherent violence of gunfighting.

Pet peeve - Doll's pulling his pocket knife; he's law enforcement, he's allowed to purchase and possess automatics. "Assisted" or "flipper" folding pocket knives are almost as fast and available to civilians - and they're often a even a little bit more reliable; a fixed blade pocketknife is even moreso but ends up on the edge of the horseshoe curve for (inadvertent) intimidation. There's absolutely no need to flick his wrist to open his knife. It's super duper obnoxious.

Obnoxiousness compounded by that he had to use two hands to close it.

The sister's relationship is nice. The trope reversal where The Man is the source of supernatural knowledge rather than the underdogs trying to convince the world is refreshing.

Kicking ass in flannels and mocs? My kind of show but those are kind of ugly mocs.
