PREVIOUSLY ON WOLVERINE THE LONG NIGHT:
The Langrocks are hiding something. While their company employs much of the town, the family is a bit peculiar in general. The investigation took Agent Marshall and Bobby to the Langrock estate, where some light was shed on how things work in Burns. We also learned more about the Aurora cult and their interesting practices. And, of course, at the end another victim is found, but this time, she’s still alive.
CHAPTER 5: INTO THE WOODS
The town decides to go to the woods to find the bear that’s done this to everyone. The sheriff wants blood and still refuses to acknowledge there might be more going on.
The agents also come across some footage of Logan in custody after the bar fight. The sheriff offered him a job in “enforcement”, but Logan turns it down. After he is released from jail, he is then picked up by the Langrocks who make him a similar offer, which he also refuses. As we all know, Logan is not really a “muscle for hire” type.
Bobby lets them know that Bret Langrock is tracking a grizzly and tells Pierce and Marshall to come watch. Marshall follows Bobby while Pierce goes to track down another lead. Mallory, the waitress that Logan defended, received a call from Logan after he was released from jail. Pierce tries to get more information from her, but she’s not budging. While they talk, there’s an explosion at the mill that doesn’t hurt Mallory or Pierce, but causes a lot of damage.
Marshall and Bobby watch Brett Langrock kill a grizzly bear with a knife and learn that he has a history of hunting animals with bows and arrows and knives as opposed to guns and more sophisticated weapons. It is left for us to wonder if he’s more involved with the “bear” attacks than originally thought?
CHAPTER 6: ARCHAEOLOGY OF THE NIGHT
Prophet begins the episode by talking about ley lines. We’ve heard of them before in the first episode, Logan had a book about them in his cabin. It leads us to wonder how they play into the “bear” attacks, or if it’s just Prophet’s superstition.
Marshall and Pierce go into the woods to see what is left behind from the hunt of the “bear” that attacked the women. The survivor, Dinah Moses, of the latest attack lost most of an arm, but there is no sign of it there. The doctors have told them she came in awake, but not lucid and has been in a medical coma ever since. Pierce asks to take a closer look, but the doctors aren’t liking the agent’s investigation. Unfortunately for the town, Agent Pierce only counted 32 teeth in the marks on her skin. A bear has 42.
Marshall is headed to meet Dinah’s brother, while Pierce found a conversation between Logan and Mallory. Mallory planted the bomb, which was meant to disrupt a drug supply, but was a bit more powerful than they expected. Logan had the Strawberry kids build the IED, which is why it was too powerful. Langrocks have just bought up a large parcel of land and Pierce and Bobby are out to get to the bottom of it all.
Pierce and Bobby go back to the woods and come across a cave full of bones. Pictures carved into the walls show constellations and images, some of which date back to prehistoric time. Bobby goes back to town and tells the sheriff all about what they found. He also approaches the sheriff about the drugs he saw at the explosion. He doesn’t want to be left out any longer. He’s still double dealing and the agents know it.
While visiting Dinah’s brother, Marshall also talks to her son, Johnny, who saw something with claws that night. Determined to prove Logan’s involvement, Marshall and Pierce try to piece more of this puzzle together.
