In the last episode, we see Jonah is on the hunt for Wilhelm Zuchs also known as The Wolf. He was the Nazi doctor who tortured Meyer and Ruth and Jonah wants retribution for this. After a series of clues leading him to a surgeon, possibly The Wolf, Meyer executes him. However, Meyer does not recite the prayer he had sworn to read while executing The Wolf. This creates suspicion in Jonah and he realizes that Meyer is The Wolf.
Zuch reveals his identity as fake Meyers. He claims to have undergone plastic surgery to escape the Soviets. He regrets his actions and therefore decided to bring the Hunters together as an apology. However, Jonah decides to kill him for his betrayal. The hunters continue their mission to Europe after this drama.
