Outsiders Season 2 Episode 4 Review: How We Hunt

at . Comments

Margan is clearly up to something. 

That much was all but confirmed on Outsiders Season 2 Episode 4 as she concluded that sticking with G'Win was the best move due to the power she yields. 

Left Behind - Outsiders

Ever since Margan and her people emerged from the unknown on Outsiders Season 2 Episode 1, it's been obvious she's been looking for a way into the inner circle of the group. 

At first, she was uncertain whether that would be with Big Foster. She now knows she can get to G'Win, and she's trying to make Big Foster look bad to get closer to his wife. 

Considering how fast the drama has been playing out, G'Win never truly stopped to think about what still being married to Little Foster would mean for her. 

It's not like she loved him. More than anything, she was just with him to make sure she had a say in some of the events that were about to go down.

The former brenin appears to be happy to sit back and watch alliances crumble and swoop in for the power when he can. 

Let's talk about the closing scene. What the heck was that? Are we to believe that those ladies were sent on Margan's command? I mean, the group did just lose the food they obtained from the hunt. 

Murdering two police officers and dragging their bodies off to the mountain is only going to create even more hostility between the residents of Shay mountain and the people down below.

It's unclear whether the two police officers were to replace some of the meat that was lost during the arson attack. Either way, it was one of the most unsettling scenes on TV in recent memory. 

Having Margan in the mix has spiced things up, but I don't know if fighting over who should be in power on the mountain is the best route to go. 

This new Big Foster is not the same, and with the world below plotting to crush us and take our home, what sense does it make to send away our most dedicated warrior?

G'Win

The more appealing aspect has got to be the witnessing how challenging things can get between the warring factions. Both sides don't like each other. 

Sally Anne making her way up the mountain was always going to cause some upset, but I was so relieved when she revealed she wanted to keep the baby. 

She was worried about the way she would be treated in Blackburg if she gave birth to a half-Farrell baby. With that in mind, Hasil could have taken more interest in her. 

Yes, he has been getting a lot of tasks given to him by G'Win, but something just seemed off about the way he was acting with her. I thought for sure that Sally Ann would wind up having the baby on the mountain. 

Sally Ann: I'm glad you're happy to see me.
Hasil: Yeah.
Sally Ann: I was worried, I thought you'd be mad at me.
Hasil: I wasn't mad at you.
Sally Ann: Hmm?
Hasil: No, I was worried more than anything. I mean, you told me that we ain't got nothing in common.
Sally Ann: I know what I said, Hasil. The truth is that we got something in common.
Hasil: What's that?
Sally Ann: I'm pregnant.

However, going back down the mountain to make it work was a bit of a stretch. There are testing times ahead for them before they find happiness.

Ledda leading the charge in the protest was not exactly surprising, but I was shocked Wade went ahead and arrested her. I completely understand that he was doing his job, but it was a random chain of events. 

It was odd that she still gunned for Haylie when she found out from Wade that she was the one who managed to get her medical insurance. 

There's nothing quite like biting the hand that feeds you, and I'm sure Haylie will react to that by making Wade's life hell. The sad thing is that she and Wade were finally on good terms, but there's no way she's going to let Ledda's outburst go unpunished. 

Haylie has been one of the more problematic characters since the show's inception. Extending the olive branch to Wade proved she did have a heart. 

I was surprised at just how well Ledda calmed down by the time Wade returned home later that day. It seemed like this was going to be one of those plots that dragged on for dear life. 

It's clear Ledda is suffering. She lost Breece, and now she has cancer, so she's trying her best to find a way to make her time left somewhat worthwhile. 

"How We Hunt" was not my favorite episode of this WGN America drama series. Margan is going to prove to be trouble. I am intrigued to find out what comes next after that final scene. 

Other tidbits from the episode:

  • Did anyone think Foster was going to shoot either Sally Ann or Hasil while out hunting? It would have been a HUGE twist. 
  • Those two losers who went down to the store for the beer without money are going to cause some more trouble down the line. Why couldn't they just stick to the wine?
  • Lil's Foster's prison story has hit a disappointing lull. I had no idea it would go on for more than an episode. He needs to make his way back up that mountain. 
  • Matt needs to disappear. He's making things much worse in town.
