As Part 1 of the confusing and muddied Rogue Team episode ended, team members Buck, Huck, and Jeff were roughly thrown into a van by the Rogue Team, winding up in Part 2 (S5/Ep2) in an interrogation room in a cabin deep in the woods. Things became surreal when the masked head of a figure became visible through a window in that room, ordering the boys to capture “The Woman of the Woods,” a witch-like figure last encountered in Lee City, VA. In return for doing this, the captor promised to deliver the identity of those who had killed “the Stonish Giant,” a Bigfoot variant. When their captor had left, a boot knife was produced by which the trio freed themselves. Buck threw a chair through the window where their host had appeared and found a decapitated hog’s head on a stake…eww!
Reunited with Willy and Wild Bill, the team went to team leader Trapper’ s house, and found it ransacked. In a secure safe was found a note and cell phone video from Trapper, detailing that he was going by invitation to a cabin of the Rogue Team; GPS coordinates were found. Going to this location the team failed to find Trapper, but rammed around the neighboring roads a bit until they found his truck. Also finding blood in the area, police were summoned. With a canine unit brought in, the trail led to another cabin where a bloodied Trapper was found inside. The blood stemmed from a reopened surgical wound rather than foul play. On the walls of the cabin were pictures of the AIMS team illustrating things that they had missed in their investigations.
Going back to the cabin where three of them had been held captive (pictured above), the gross hog’s head was examined, and coordinates were found secured in a shotgun casing found in the hog’s mouth; so glad that I wasn’t eating for this segment! The coordinates were to a location in “The Dark Forest,” with team researcher Jeff sharing that he had gone alone to the Dark Forest, but didn’t know how he had arrived there: presumably the “Woman of the Woods ” was influencing Jeff from a prior encounter.
And what is to be found in “The Dark Forest?”- – Why, that’s where “The Black Wolf” lives, a creature to be revealed in an upcoming episode called, “Secrets of the Dark Forest.” – – Are you not entertained?!
