What happened to Ronald in ‘Big Sky’?

In Big Sky Season 2 Episode 12, Wolf Legarski (John Carroll Lynch) took Cassie Dewell and Mark Lindor (Omar Metwally) to Ronald Pergman. Scarlet Leyendecker (Anja Savcic) 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 pulled the weapon out of her body and used it to stab Ronald. His last words were, “I was a good boy.” He fell to the ground and died. However, Scarlet and Phoebe escaped.

Big Sky Season 2 revolves around the Bhullar family and the drug cartel they brought to Montana. Jenny won’t stop until she brings Ren (Janina Gavankar) and Jag (Vinny Chhibber) down. However, her love interest, Travis Stone (Logan Marshall-Green), keeps getting in the way. Now that Ronald is dead, the storyline in Big Sky Season 2 continues in a different direction.

When Wolf Legarski died in episode 13, viewers heard about John Milton again. The mystery person is part of the syndicate that Rick Legarski and Ronald worked for, and they are looking for Scarlet. So, she might come back into the picture in Big Sky at some point.

Big Sky Season 2 airs on Thursdays at 10 p.m. EST on ABC.
