What I’m Watching: We Hunt Together (Season Finale)

We Hunt Together: Season 1, Episode 6 (B+)

This show’s title feels like a bit of a misnomer now that one of the two killers is dead, although maybe it always referred to Jackson and Lola instead of Freddy and Baba, since they were the ones hunting the killers. Baba’s death, however, represents his sacrifice to save Freddy, mainly because there was never any way that he was going to get out of there alive. I fully expected Jackson to walk in with no concerns about escaping with his life, but he also knew that Baba wasn’t the one with the murderous spirit since, all along, it’s been Freddy more than ready to pull the trigger and continue doing what she’s been doing since she pushed her best friend into the lake as a child. Jackson did seem more concerned with making Baba’s demands happen quickly than his colleagues who were stalling, though it all ended up being for nothing because Baba walked out ready to be shot dead. Freddy had the perfect setup to bring up the tears and pretend that she was a victim in all this, something she portrayed convincingly for all those watching who didn’t have a sense of who she really is. Giving Jackson and Lola the finger on her way out when she passed them was all the encouragement Lola needed to continue looking into her, and she was very gratified when she found proof that Freddy was the architect of all this and not Baba’s helpless assistant. I have no idea if a second season of this will ever happen, but I’d return to see these characters again, even if we’re just down to three of them.

Season grade: B+
Season MVP: Hermione Corfield as Freddy
