‘Big Sky’: A Rundown of All the Characters Who Died or Left in Season 2 and What Happened

Big Sky Season 1 began with the death of a significant character, Cody Hoyt (Ryan Phillippe), so it is no surprise that someone dies in nearly every episode throughout season 2. However, it can be challenging to keep track of the various characters and deaths. Only a few Big Sky cast members remain that began with the series in 2020 — Kylie Bunbury, Katheryn Winnick, Jesse James Keitel, and Dedee Pfeiffer as receptionist Denise Brisbane. Here’s a rundown of everyone who died so far or left in Big Sky Season 2.

Who killed Wolf on ‘Big Sky’?

The syndicate murdered Wolf in Big Sky Season 2 Episode 13. After a gunshot wound in episode 12, an ambulance transports Wolf to a hospital. However, on the way there, EMT #2 (Brian Landis Folkins) questions Wolf about Scarlet Leyendecker’s (Anja Savcic) whereabouts. Then, the EMT holds a plastic bag over Wolf’s head until he dies. Although the medic is the one who kills Wolf, the last word the man hears is, “John Milton sends his regards.” Viewers assume that John Milton is responsible for Wolf Legarski’s death in Big Sky

Bob died in ‘Big Sky’ Season 2 Episode 13

When Big Sky Season 2 Episode 14 opens, Travis shows Jenny the body of Bob (Alex Knight). In the last few minutes of episode 13, Travis stabbed Bob with a steak knife to prove to Ren (Janina Gavankar) and Jag (Vinny Chhibber) that he’s not a cop. 

Is Ronald dead on ‘Big Sky’?

In Big Sky Season 2 Episode 12, Wolf took Cassie Dewell and Mark Lindor (Omar Metwally) to Ronald Pergman (Brian Geraghty). Scarlet threatened a doctor into fixing Ronald’s gunshot wound, and then Ronald killed the doctor. Cassie faced off against Ronald in a dark barn in the last few minutes of the episode. Although he slashed her with a barn sheer, Cassie finally used the same weapon to kill Ronald. His last words were, “I was a good boy.”

T-Lock died rescuing Rachel and Max

Although T-Lock (Arturo Del Puerto) had questionable morals in Big Sky Season 2, he died trying to save Rachel (T. V. Carpio) and Max (Madelyn Kientz). In episode 12, T-Lock shot Bob (Alex Knight); however, the man who kidnapped the two girls was wearing a bullet-proof vest. So, Bob unexpectedly got up and shot T-Lock, killing him. Jenny Hoyt found T-Lock, but it was too late.

Madison, Bridger, Rachel, Max, and Harper all left the show in episode 13

In the middle of Big Sky Season 2 Episode 13, the four teens reconvened and agreed that things would “never be the same.” Bridger (Jeremy Ray Taylor) and Madison’s (Lola Skye Reid) parents send them away to boarding school. They shared a group hug before splitting up. Then, Max and Harper (Troy Leigh-Anne Johnson) share a kiss and head off to meet Rachel together. Will we ever see the teens again? Probably not, since their storyline is over.

Agatha Legarski died in ‘Big Sky’ Season 2

Romy Rosemont portrayed Wolf’s wife, Agatha Legarski, in the Big Sky Season 2 cast. However, Scarlet killed Agatha with a syringe in episode 9, “Trust Issues,” after she attempted to murder Scarlet. Ronald Pergman hit Wolf with a blunt object in the same episode but didn’t kill him.

Cassie Dewell’s father died in ‘Big Sky’ Season 2

Although Joseph Dewell was another reasonably minor character in the Big Sky cast, his death left a significant impact. Jeffrey Joseph portrayed Cassie Dewell’s father. He was the one constant in Cassie’s life besides Kai (Gabriel Jacob-Cross). In Big Sky Season 2 Episode 8, Ronald Pergman kidnapped Phoebe and then made a pitstop at Dewell & Hoyt. At first, he only threatened Cassie’s father (who was fixing the boiler). However, when Joseph tried to attack Ronald with a wrench, the murderer had no problem killing him. 

‘Big Sky’ Season 2 character, Smiley, came and went

Although Smiley (Michael Tomsu) began Big Sky Season 2 as a minor character, viewers quickly realized that he was Dietrich’s (David Meunier) right-hand man in the drug ring. However, he was “skimming off the top” and tried to have a small business selling drugs on the side. Smiley dies in Big Sky Season 2 Episode 6, “Heart-Shaped Charm.” Ren (Janina Gavankar) and Donno (Ryan O’Nan) killed him.

‘Big Sky’ Season 2 cast member Michael Malarkey left the show

When Big Sky Season 2 began, Deputy Harvey (Michael Malarkey) became a significant player. He proved that Rick Legarski (John Carroll Lynch) wasn’t the only bad apple in the bunch at the local law enforcement agency in Montana. Harvey helped the local drug ring and attempted to track down the missing money and drugs. However, he didn’t last long — Creary (Ryan De Quintal) shot Harvey in Big Sky Season 2 Episode 5.
