Background[edit | edit source]
Season 1[edit | edit source]
Mickey appears in the episode "The Hammer". Boyd Crowder visits him and tries to convince him to stop cooking meth, calling it a modern day plague like locusts, only worse. Soon, the other "flock" members come out holding shotguns and Mickey asks if Bobby Joe Packer was the cause of all this, to which Boyd replies that Bobby Joe joined a winning team. Boyd attempts to get Mickey, Gil, and Puller to join but to no avail. Boyd indirectly warns them that if he finds out that they are cooking meth, he will blow the lab up (although he says that he hears these things blow up all the time.) Later on, Mickey and Puller are forced out of the trailer at gunpoint by Boyd's "flock". Mickey pleads for Boyd not to throw a Moltov Cocktail into the trailer but gets hit in the head. After the trailer blows up, an angry Mickey tells Boyd that Gil was in the back, and was killed by the explosion.
Mickey appears in the next episode "Veterans". Mickey and Puller visit Bo at the bar, where Mickey apologizes for not taking his initial offer of protection. Mickey asks if it is too late to accept the offer, to which Bo replies it's never too late, and says that he will have them back up and running again in the meth business. Mickey reluctantly agrees to pay the $10,000 rate for protection. Later, riding with Johnny and Hestler, Puller and he are told that Bo will get them everything they need. Bo then steps suddenly into the road and flags their car down. Soon after stopping, Mickey and Puller are killed, with Mickey being shot by Johnny (Hestler kills Puller). Their deaths clear the way for Bo to take over the Meth business. When police inform the Marshals of the bodies being found, Raylan assumes that Boyd is behind the murders.
