Character History

Four Months Later...

At a Cork shipping yard, Ricky, Tuko, and Will search for a shipping container which they believe to contain iPods. Instead, they find a half-naked Peter handcuffed inside the empty container. They ask him where the merchandise is, to which he replies that he doesn't know.


Ricky asks Peter further about the iPods missing in the container he was found in. However, Peter has no memory which Ricky doesn't believe and has Tuko try to beat answers out of him. Against Ricky's wishes, Caitlin later tends to Peter's injuries and explains that Ricky owed the shipment to a man named McSorley and will be in serious trouble if he can't find out what happened to it. Ricky eventually departs with Will and Tuko and warns Caitlin to keep an eye on Peter.

Later that night, Ricky returns to his pub where Peter is treating Caitlin's injuries enraged that Peter knocked around McSorley's son. When Peter sarcastically tells Ricky he could just leave Caitlin to the man instead next time, Ricky tells him that as a result of Peter's actions, he has "turned a simple monetary problem into a blood feud." Ricky tells Peter that to make up for it, he will help them commit another bigger robbery to get McSorley off their backs. Ricky calls Peter by name and reveals he has a box containing everything Peter had on him when they found him. Ricky threatens to burn the box if Peter doesn't help them but offers it up in exchange for Peter's help with the robbery.


Ricky explains to Peter that in order to get his box back, he has to help Ricky and the boys steal a lockbox. When Peter reads the thoughts of Will and accuses him of wanting to steal the money from Ricky, Ricky takes offense and explains to Peter that Will is family. He trusts Will much more than Peter.

Peter distracts the guards of the armored car as Ricky, Will and Tuko tie them up. Ricky holds another guard up as the gang take the money. The guard sounds an alarm, and Ricky knocks him out with a shotgun. They all run away from the scene.

Ricky, Caitlin and Will open the lockbox and drink a pint. Will points a gun at Ricky and tells him to give him the money. Ricky originally thinks its a joke and is surprised when Will turns out to be serious. After Peter enters and points out he was right, Will shoots him twice, apparently killing Peter. Will continues to threaten Ricky, but is suddenly pinned to the wall with telekinesis by Peter. Ricky watches in shock as Peter regenerates then nearly chokes Will to death before Caitlin gets him to stop.

After Peter saves him, Ricky accepts him as part of his family and has Caitlin give Peter a tattoo of their family crest. As Peter gets the tattoo, Ricky gives him the box, stating that he may not know what Peter is, but he knows who he is and they are now family and families don't keep secrets.

Fight or Flight

Ricky brings a man to Peter, who says that he heard from some men down at the docks that an American girl was looking for him. Ricky promises Peter that he'll take care of everything, and that he'll protect Peter as Peter is now with Caitlin and Ricky sees him as family. As foretold, Elle comes to the pub and asks Ricky if he's seen Peter, and shows him a picture. Loyally, Ricky lies and says that he's never seen Peter. Elle repeatedly asks him and Ricky keeps giving the same answer. Just when she's about to leave, however, she suddenly attacks Ricky with an intense bolt of blue lightning. Later, Caitlin receives a call and she and Peter rush over to the pub to find Tuko next to Ricky's charred remains. Seeing Ricky dead causes Peter to decide to stop running.


  • Early spoilers described Ricky as being 45 years old.
