About Amazon Prime’s Hunters season 2
Almost 30 years after World War 2, Nazis have escaped and are living secretly in America. Some have even gone up the ladders in politics, space, medicine etc. Vigilante crew of Amazon Hunters headed by Meyer (Al Pacino) is on a mission to hunt down each Nazi and give them the most horrendous death. But the series is not about Pacino as it seems. It is about the 19-year-old Jew, Jonah Heilelbaum (played by Logan Lerman) who grapples between revenge and justice.
The comic book fanatic suffers the tragic loss of his grandmother, Ruth and his world is blown when he discovers his family’s legacy. Meyer reveals that he and Ruth formed The Hunt to kill Nazis who are masquerading as God-fearing Americans.
The boy visions comic book heroes and villains play out in bold bright colours alongside Meyer demanding him to join The Hunt. Should he join them to take the revenge of the holocaust? Is repeating the same brutality on Nazis justified? This pop culture fanboy gets all his answers from superheroes out there. Be prepared for Marvel laced Tarantino’s styled bloody revenge when hunters come down hunting hiding Nazis.
Spoiler Alert! What happened on Amazon Prime’s Hunters season 1 finale?
The Wolf dies but The Wolf of the Wolves lives!
Meyer is disappointed with Jonah for not killing Travis when he had the right opportunity. “Words are small. Deeds are giants,” he says, expressing his immense dismay. Jonah is bombarded with examples of Peter Parker, Jean Grey and Dick Robin (his superheroes) who all kill the “baddie” to prove themselves. Later Jonah finds a letter of Ruth that will, in the near future, break the cover of Meyer.
Jonah follows The Wolf files kept by Ruth to track down Cosmetic surgeon (William Sadler) who he presumes to be The Wolf. He presents to Meyer his biggest enemy and he unceremoniously stabs him. The ultimate Triumph moment! But Jonah is troubled by the contents of the letter. In 1945, when Allies liberated Auschwitz concentration camp, Meyer was dreaming of saying the Kaddish prayer before killing the wolf. He promised to say the prayer if he ever gets the chance to kill the Wolf.
But this time was no Kaddish prayer before Meyer killed The Wolf. A revelation that shocks Jonah- Meyer is the Wolf! And Jonah kills him ending Al Pacino’s run for Hunters season 2 right there.
This doesn’t end here. The closing scene flashes an outdoor dining table in Argentina and sitting there is an old man with the infamously dreadful moustache- Adolf Hitler. He has been alive all through, and so is his wife. The colonel turns out to be none other than Eva Braun (Hitler’s wife). We see 4 identical Nazi kids and one can imagine how Amazon Hunters season 2 will progress.
