UPDATED with recap. Is Jeff on Rogue Team or just pissed at Buck?
Season five of “Mountain Monsters” moves on with the episode “The Black Wolf” and we return to the Dark Forest in Lee County, Virginia. The AIMS team had a lot to recover from, covered in last week’s installment. Jeff had a terrible reaction to being in the forest, both physically and emotionally.
He ran from the team after a figure that looked like a young girl dressed in white, came close to him. That was after he had fallen unconscious earlier in the team’s trip into the Dark Forest. They knew they had a Woman of the Woods, but now there might be a Girl of the Woods.
Weird and strange things are adding up in the forest. They’ve seen the Woman of the Woods and their mission in the Dark Forest was to find her for their arch enemies in the Rogue Team. Once that is accomplished, something that seems almost impossible, they’ll learn the identity of the folks who stole the body of the Stonish Giant.
They are ready to confront them whoever that may be and retrieve it. All these guys want is to justify their years of investigating the existence of these “Mountain Monsters, something the Rogue team has tried to prevent.
But, on their way, the AIMS team learned about yet another creature in the Dark Forest. That would be the Black Wolf. In the sneak peek video clip posted below, listen to Buck explain the legend, when the wolf is said to appear and why. Then the team spots claw marks on a tree and the ground that make them realize the wolf might stand as tall as any one of them, perhaps weighing more than 250 lbs.
These guys are hilarious when they’ve spotted something, eyes widening, yelling at each other, “Look at this!” and “What’s that?” , while calling each other’s names out over and over. Buck seems to be the new leader in the field, because Trapper’s health won’t allow him to go traipsing around a forest. Buck was accused of trying to push out Trapper but denied it. What do you think?
