Lincoln Lawyer Season 2 Part 1 Ending Explained: Is Mickey Alive?

Mickey Haller returns to Netflix in a two-parter The Lincoln Attorney Season 2 with a brand new case. Last season he may have acquitted a murderer with an acquittal, but this time there may be even more at stake in his latest case.

In the first part of the second season based on the book The Fifth Witness by Michael Connelly, Mickey battles a new rival (played by Yaya DaCosta) in court while his new lover (played by Lana Parrilla) is arrested and personally represented by Lincoln’s attorney. Talk about mixing business and pleasure in the worst possible way.

Maggie, Lorna, Izzy and Cisco are also back to weather (and/or deliver) the ups and downs, and the end of the first part of season two will have our jaws dropping. So where does the Mitchell Bondurant murder trial end? Does Lisa have an argument for her innocence? And what can we expect from Mickey in Season 2 Part 2?

WARNING: Major spoilers follow The Lincoln Attorney Season 2 Part 1!

Did Lisa Mitchell Kill Bondurant in The Lincoln Lawyer Season 2?

That’s the million dollar question in the first part of The Lincoln Attorney Season 2, and Mickey begins to lose faith in his client and very complicated friend. Lisa insists that she didn’t kill Mitchell Bondurant, but after winning a small victory against the people at the preliminary hearing, Lisa confesses to Mickey that she did in fact do it was in front of Bondurant’s building on the day of his assassination.

Combined with the fact that Bondurant’s blood was discovered on Lisa’s gardening gloves and the missing hammer from her toolbox, which is believed to be the murder weapon, is still missing, the cards speak against Mickey’s ability to defend her. For some reason, Lisa really cares that Mickey believes she didn’t kill Bondurant and has a hard time hiding his doubts.

At the end of Season 2 Part 1, Lisa insists that she didn’t kill Mitchell Bondurant and claims that she is being framed. She could very well be telling the truth, or she could be lying through her teeth. Given what happens at the very end of Episode 5, there’s something incredibly shady going on in this case that Mickey couldn’t yet see clearly.

Does Mickey die in Season 2 of The Lincoln Lawyer Part 1?

After the announcement of Henry Dahl’s limited series, Mickey gets into a violent argument with Lorna over the lack of Lisa’s life rights contract. He accuses Lorna of misplacing the contract, but she tells him she didn’t take the contract off the Lincoln’s files. Looking for the contract, Mickey searches the trunk of the car in the parking garage and finds Lisa’s file empty.

He barely has time to process the fact that someone broke into his car and stole Lisa’s paperwork until he is attacked by two men. They knocked him unconscious, punched and kicked him while he was lying on the ground. Mickey’s attempts to fight back are no match for this attack. Season 2 Part 1 ends with Mickey lying unconscious on the floor of the parking garage… but there’s no way he’s dead. It’s his show!

The biggest questions for Part 2 will focus on who staged Mickey’s attack, who the attackers were, and who stole the papers from Lisa’s file in Mickey’s car. Did Lisa make enemies with the wrong people? Is Alex Grant somehow involved? Perhaps the most shocking question of all: could Lisa be behind all of this?
