I wonder if the woodsmen are slowly getting more power to do things like that. This may explain why they weren't able to kill him while he was in prison.

Any theories to WHY he was killed? And why not killed in jail?

I sure hope Tammy & Co sees that his corps looks a lot like the New York couple, and makes some kind of connection. But I have no idea as to why he had to go.

It's possible he was killed for revealing the portal's location to allies of the White Lodge, or was about to give them even more information.......

I do think that the killing of Hastings after so much time was to maximise the pain and suffering that could be gained from such an act. If you think about it, when he killed the disc jockey, he only crushed his head after a substantial amount of time had passed. Perhaps this is why they walk so slowly, to create a large amount of fear which will mean the body is tense and therefore more pain will be felt.

Agreed, Hastings had certainly been (put) through some kind of hell (real world as black lodge).

Like Eric, I think it is curious that the Woodsman in the jail cell did not take the opportunity.  They can move through walls, why not step over a couple cells and take him out.  That Woodsman did seem frozen unlike our more active Woodsman in the death scene.  At the time, I thought it was maybe the Log Lady's husband, but if it was one of the Woodsman, it would have been a great time to take out Hastings.

If the Woodsman are clever enough to either wait on explicit instructions or wanted information out of him first, maybe they'd wait, but otherwise it was a wasted opportunity.

I think the Woodsman seen on Hastings cell was only instructed to keep an eye on his movements and watch who are the folks (police, FBI) who came to see him in his cell. He was not instructed to kill him, hence he did not do it at the time.

The Woodsmen only killed Hastings in the car because he had serve his purpose (showing the location of the coordinates to the FBI agents), which was apparently something they were lacking previously.

I think the Woodsmen were the minion henchmen of the ultimate evil (Mother??) who obeyed whichever directives s/he told them to do, but do not have independent minds and desires of their own. That's why the one Woodsman in the cell did not kill Hastings despite having plenty of opportunity to do so (he was alone most of the time and the guards were away), as he was not yet instructed to take his life, just to spy on him.

To my understanding, spirits are more like animals feeding on prey, rather than spying or planning. There are certain things that attract them. If you got light, you are most likely shielded, however if not, fear etc. Mai got make you vulnerable. All predators usually go for weakest prey.

I'd respectfully disagree because there have been some instances of spirits actually making elaborate plans (like MIKE's plans to stop BOB, Mr. C creating Dougie (presumably)). Given these plans we've seen before, I wouldn't think it too far of the Woodsmen to lurk and watch their victims to see who they can cause the most havoc to.

Mr. C is a Doppleganger, Bob and Mike are inhabiting spirits. Woodsmen are something else entirely. I don't believe we can project one type of Lodger's ability/talent/knowledge on to another. Really, all we can do is speculate about their abilities and learn about them from observation.

I guess. I jumped to conclusions. But it's easy to when the rules for the different spirits are so undefined (not a detraction in my eyes).
