Who is Wolfgang Legarski in ‘Big Sky’ Season 2 Episode 2?

To recap Big Sky Season 2 Episode 2, viewers finally find out who Wolfgang Legarski is. According to Wolf, he’s Rick Legarski’s twin brother, but the two men are complete opposites. Wolf’s new “mission in life is to undo all of the evil” that Rick “unleashed into the world.” The long-haired man with glasses begins his endeavor by teaching Ronald the fundamental laws of nature and the jungle. Rick’s twin believes that Ronald is less than a dog in the wolfpack right now. If he doesn’t want to be in the pack, then he doesn’t deserve to live. 

“Lex Talionis,” Wolf tells Ronald in Big Sky Season 2 Episode 2,” which is the law of retaliation.

Viewers also find out that Wolf’s wife (Romy Rosemont from A Million Little Things) keeps Scarlet (Anja Savcic). It looks like we will see those two again in a later episode.

What’s going on between Jenny and Travis?

At the scene of the overturned truck, Jenny Hoyt discovers blood and a scratched VIN. Her old friend, Travis (Logan-Marshall Green), turns up at the scene, claiming he’s late to work. However, Jenny tells him the crash is more than a drunk driver. Later, when Jenny heads to Travis’ hotel room, she finds him kissing another woman. The following day, he insists the woman was a front for a connection he was trying to make.

Madison (Lola Skye Reid) insists everything is fine, but the lurker, Creary (Ryan de Quintal), sits outside watching from his van. Later, when Bridger heads to the police station to report the crime the teens saw, he runs into Deputy Harvey (Michael Malarkey).

Later, when Cassie asks Max (Madelyn Kientz) to babysit Kai (Raejon Jones), she looks at the photo of Big Sam funny. The private investigator can tell that she recognizes the missing man.

Bridger tells his friends about the deputy. Plus, Max admits that she gave her mother, Rachel (T.V. Carpio), $2,000 of the drug money to get a crown put on her tooth. So, she gives each of the teens the same amount to use as they want. However, the lurker watches the interaction and follows Max and Harper (Troy Leigh-Anne Johnson) home. Max sprays the man with pepper spray, and the girls run off.

Cassie insists she can’t proceed with investigating Ronald

Cassie Dewell tells Mark Lindor (Omar Metwally) that she cannot have anything more to do with tracking Ronald or Trooper Dewey’s (Andreas Apergis) death. The state trooper had photos of Cassie with her son, Kai, so she believes she made her son a target.

Cassie and Jerrie end up working on the same case as Jenny

A local server at a restaurant, Tonya (Jamie-Lynn Sigler), tells Cassie that her boyfriend, Big Sam, never came home and hasn’t responded to her texts. The receptionist, Denise Brisbane (Dedee Pfeiffer), fusses over Jerrie Kennedy (Jesse James Keitel) passing her Private Investigator test. Then Jerrie finds out Big Sam had two flights booked for Cabo the night he disappeared.
