Also, Jackal was creating a 'Wall of Blast' around him in order to defend, so if he was in a situation where he couldn't see, he would just explode everything around him (kind of like how Banbietta fought when Hirako used his Sakanade on her in Bleach ch 555-556).
Plus, both Loki and Capricorn are close-combat types (if we don't count the anime), which is like a double-edge sword in the fight against Jackal because of that "Curse".
Another factor is that Lucy got easily trapped in that Enchantment, and most likely even a small movement to use magical power would have triggered it.
I believe that Jackal is not the right opponent for Lucy.
My guess is that her opponent would be either Franmalth or Ki-Su. While i believe that Wendy's (along with Chelia) opponent would be Seira.
Also their are some freaks who get hold of high power (in our real life) and went on to think that they are the most important of all people of the world and are willing to sacrifice others for their own life, so why wouldn't that happen in story.
Plus just like Jackal pointed out, what would one expect from a man who left his own granddaughter behind and ran away. If a person can't think of saving their own bloods life, then how could we consider him to save the others.

So did anyone else laugh when Natsu came with that elbow to the neck on Jackal?
I'm not sure Natsu's strategy is a particularly effective long-term approach. At least we got to see the girls in some action. Although, I don't get why Lucy so frequently doesn't particularly go out with her attacks, she's shown that she's more than capable of summoning multiple spirits, so why is it that even in such situations she holds back? The most interesting thing for me was the mention of 'Enchatment', I'm curious to see what the distinctions are between the two. And our useless magic councillor should've at least tried to be a tad more dignified.
another good chapter, not a single wasted panel
the former magic council member dissapointed me a bit, surely i would have assumed he would have said to save the pregnant girl instead of an old man like himself...
however natsu saved the day so its a moot point
i love wendy's confidence and courage, she is definitely not your average cute little loli

lol at blown up natsu just standing there like its all good
he can seriously take a beating, growing up with a "big-sis" figure like erza and a dragon for a father really paid off
fucking Best chapter in a while! everything was perfect, art, pace, acting etc... I'm really excited for this arc and the rest to come. I i think hiro getting his shit together for this.
If I were Lucy, I definitely would have saved the pregnant woman..the ex-councillor's hooting and hollering about how he is more valuable to the world would have only made my decision easier.
I am must have to say the start of this arc was much more promising than the last few chapters.... This chapter was for me 1 of the worst ones in Fairy Tail actually. I mean every1 gets Natsu is great but this chapter could be mcu better if Wendy and Lucy did something. They are doing nothing and I expected things to change a little bit after the tournament and the village arc.....
Only thing I kinda like is that councilor to get K.Oed.....
I thought it was a nice chapter.
And Lucy didn't summon more spirits because she needed a spirit with a ranged attack.
She could summon the archer but he's kinda weak and not agile.
I think she made the right choice but summoning that scorpion.
But did Natsu eat the explosion of it's arm or something?
This chapter was kind of... a let down? I wouldn't have been surprised if Natsu got back up right away, but when he didn't and Lucy and Wendy spilt, I was really hoping to see Lucy take over. I bet she could have pulled off some cool tricks with Aquarius. Like, thrown the key while summoning, so it would land in the water before the hostages were taken (and so she could get punished later for tossing the key), and then Aquarius could have rushed the guy with water before he had a chance to make anything go boom. All of his explosions so far have seemed fiery, so unless he has another trick he forgot to mention, so taking the fight underwater could have worked well...
Fingers crossed that she'll still try something like that to help Natsu fight.
I wish Lucy would have decided a second earlier and let the council member die, what a piece of shit. He deserves hell for what he has done to his granddaughter and wanted to do to the citizen.
"see? I'm about to show you how truly ugly all humans are on the inside.."
I think he meant watch how fast they'll lie to make you save one of them.
