Hunters season 2 episode 6 recap – what did Jonah do in Spain? first appeared on Ready Steady Cut.

We recap the Prime Video Hunters Season 2 Episode 6 series, “Only the Dead,” which contains spoilers.

Season two of Hunters mainly focused on hunting Adolf Hitler (Udo Kier). This journey ends in “Only the Dead”, as Joe (Louis Ozawa) leads the gang to Hitler’s stronghold. As always, the episode intercuts this traumatic adventure with informative flashback sequences. These deal with how Meyer (Al Pacino) and Sister Harriet (Kate Mulvany) first meeting Chava (Jennifer Jason Leigh) in Argentina in 1977.

Hunters Season 2 Episode 6 Recap

Jonah try to make amends with Clear, but she is frightened by the harsh reality of this situation, mainly the fact that her fiancé is a cold-blooded killer. Jonah tries to reassure her and explains the purpose of all this bloodshed. They hunt the Nazis because the government won’t. This injustice needs to be righted and Jonah has another mission to complete, before it’s all over. Clear don’t believe it. She escaped her captors by appealing to their humanity, not by violence. They see things completely opposite. Then Jonah admits he killed a child in Spain, by accident, which explains the Hunters disbanding in the first place. Clara ends the conversation poetically, stating that she cannot marry a murderer or love a monster.

Those words hit hard and Jonah asks Chava if they are monsters after all. Roxy returns before they can have a real heart to heart. She is seriously injured but will survive. Roxy confronts his attacker and surprisingly frees Joe from his restraints. She doesn’t think Joe would hurt her, that it wasn’t really Joe who tried to kill her. Lonny doesn’t see things the same way, he passionately wants to kill Joe right now but we’re talking about it. Joe is the only person who can lead them to Hitler, they need him alive and have to trust him reluctantly.

Meanwhile, Adolf and the Colonel are waiting for Joe and Travis to return. They bicker as usual, discussing their torrid past. The Colonel is frank with Adolf, he lost the war, he is now obsolete. She wants to lead a new movement, to carry Hitler’s name forward. Adolf retaliates, stating that he is the one in all the history books, not her. She deserves nothing more. Later, they play a memory game and Adolf guesses that every card is wrong. The Colonel reminds Adolf that he begged for the cyanide pill, but she saved them both, she promised he would win the war one day. The Colonel urges Adolf to let her take over, to let her lead a new army. Hitler scoffs at his suggestions.

Flashbacks reveal how Sister Harriet became an ally of Chava. She discovers that an assassin is killing Nazis alone in Argentina. Meyer agrees to travel to Buenos Aires with Sister Harriet to meet this killer, hoping to form a new alliance. They track the killer to a cabin in the woods and Chava ambushes Sister Harriet, with a knife to her throat. Meyer explains the Hunters’ plans and announces his name. Chava responds, stating that his sister was in love with Meyer. It’s a strange family reunion.

Chava admits she knew at Ruth’s location and life in general, even being aware of Jonas, but she chose to remain silent for twenty years. She didn’t want to give up this job she loves so much, and she knew that Ruth would have talked her out of it if they had met again. Meyer and Sister Harriet are forced to keep Chava’s whereabouts a secret as they return to the United States with this emotional knowledge weighing on their consciences.

Back in the present, the gang runs through a forest in the dark, heading for Hitler’s abode. Chava stops the party for a well-deserved break. She talks about a Nazi killer, nicknamed the plague. Chava met and fell in love with The Plague (real name: Zev), and they fought the Nazis together for twenty years. He was a myth in these parts, she promises they will soon become legends themselves if they succeed in killing Hitler.

Joe leads the gang to an escape hatch outside the grounds. He explains that this will lead them to a system of tunnels, this is the safest way to enter Hitler’s compound. The traitor doesn’t know if there will be armed guards on their way to the compound, but that’s their only option. Mindy blows up the hatch doors with explosives and the fighters enter the enemy lair. We still don’t know if we can trust Joe or not at this point, but he offers to go in alone at first before the hunters follow him afterwards. He predicts that there will be a shootout and that Hitler will be taken to a bunker. They must beat Hitler to the bunker, otherwise he will be impossible to reach.

The ending explained

As Joe enters the compound, it appears the Hunters have made a mistake. Joe warns the guards of an impending attack and they sound the alarm. The gang enters the compound, watching the community fall into disarray and the villagers running in blind panic. Joe doubles (or is it triple?) the guards and kills the Germans. A shootout ensues.

The guards lead Adolf and Eva Hitler to the bunker. Jonah and Chava manage to infiltrate Hitler’s mansion and get him in sight. Chava can’t quite make a clean shot and they are forced to follow their enemy once more. He is about to enter the bunker, when Jonah and Chava start shooting again. Chava distracts the shooters, while Jonah slips into the bunker just in time to pursue Adolf. Unfortunately, Chava is shot and killed for her heroic actions.

Jonah closes the bunker doors and chases Adolf deeper into the maze of rooms. The Führer waits for him with a gun raised, but not at Jonas, he tries to shoot himself instead. Jonas stops Adolf from committing suicide and holds a gun to his head, contemplating murder. Jonah chooses not to kill Adolf, remarking that he must be held accountable for his crimes. Jonah ties him up and takes Adolf into a tunnel. In a symbolic ending, many of Adolf’s victims silently watch as the Führer is taken away. They nod in silent appreciation for what Jonas has accomplished.
