Sounds like Predator to me
This week’s episode starts off like an episode of Finding Bigfoot where a couple of kids are out looking for trouble at Wolf Creek Valley. They find some broken branches which is a common sign apparently of Bigfoot marking his territory. I don’t know why but I thought most animals mark their territory with pee not broken branches but you learn something every day. One of them starts making Bigfoot noises in an attempt to lure him out because you should always aggravate Bigfoot by doing a mating call. They eventually come across some sort of dead animal entrails and then hear a loud roar. The roar is followed by some loud footsteps, screaming and a dude getting tossed into a tree through the video camera.
Who put this tree in the way?
Later, a ranch owner is working in his stable when his horses get spooked. He shoots at something in the darkness that is attacking his horses. He calls Juliette, who doubles as a pet detective, shows up to investigate and finds large claw marks on the animal that she says are bite marks from a big animal. They walk off to where Tom shot the intruder and Juliette spots a large footprint and seriously asks Tom if he runs outside barefoot. Not only would his foot not match the print but it’s about the size of his head so Juliette is definitely a master detective. Nothing gets past this girl! She collects some hair samples she finds near the broken fence and notes that they are not from the horses. The start following the footprints and blood trail like a bunch of dummies instead of calling Nick and find the dead bodies of the kids from earlier.
Fantasia? Atlantis? Pandora? Tattoine? WHERE?
Nick is playing with his key print and not worrying about why Juliette is out in the woods in the middle of the night when he gets a call from her about the crime scene. You would think with all the close calls and Nick’s knowledge of what is really going on in the world that he would keep a better leash on his girl but I guess since he got her a gun, he thought she would be safe. Nick figures out miraculously that the imprint on his key is a location on a map. Nick would do well on a season of Road Rules with all those wacky puzzle challenges and things they do…oh wait.
Not something you find everyday
The police arrive on the scene and start looking around for clues and wondering what type of animal could have done such destruction. Clearly wolves and bears don’t impale their victims on sticks so Nick theorizes that it could have been another person. Sgt. Wu says that it’s a barefoot man carrying a wolf because that’s what people in the backwoods of Portland do on the daily. They soon find the video camera the kids used to record the footage as well as a girl that was with the group of kids earlier. She frantically claims that Bigfoot killed her friends and that he’s still out there waiting to get them. I’m kind of wondering how she managed to get away unharmed because you know women are the worst in survival scenarios. Seriously, they are usually the first to go unless they buddy up with a stronger male and it’s just her so yea…how did she get away?
What kind of bear impales a man?
At the station, Nick, Captain and Hank identify both bodies as Bigfoot hunters and that the girl they found is currently ranting at the hospital. Nick, Captain and Hank review footage from the camcorder and find that the kids were indeed attacked by something that appears to be wearing a red flannel shirt. Maybe the wolves and bears were cold last night? Flannel is a good heat insulator. Renard takes the case from the forest division and tells them that the footage needs to stay quiet so the media doesn’t turn it into a circus. Nick and Juliette are talking in bed and she asks what killed the kids. Nick tells her that he doesn’t know but the image on the camera showed it was wearing clothes. Juliette tells him that if it was what attacked Tom’s horses, then it was not a man. Methinks someone is finally opening her little eyes to the world around her.
That looks like Bigfoot rape to me.
