The Retreat From BostonEdit
Jimmy met up with Cpt. Weaver, Hal and Tom Mason when they arrived back from Boston. He was surprised to learn Cpt. Jameson was killed and wondered aloud who would command the 2nd Massachusetts Militia Regiment now. Later, when the militia begins to pull back from Boston, Jimmy assisted with the preparations to evacuate. Throughout the night, along with the others, he began moving guns and ammo while listening to war stories from Click and Anthony. The main story was about two guys from the 5th Massachusetts Militia Regiment who managed to kill a Skitter when cornered with two bullets from point blank range. ("Live and Learn")
One Step Forward, Two Steps BackEdit
After the rest of the 2nd Mass begin to move out, Jimmy, along with Dai, Click, Anthony, Karen, and Hal, gathered up with Tom to plan their raid into Boston. Tom points out on a map that there is a store in West Newton and a food distribution center in Watertown, both places where there might be food. However, considering how close they were to the city center, they were most likely traps. He also points out that the main Skitter reinforcements would either come down River Road or Blanchard Road and they needed to know which on to avoid Skitters coming up behind them. He tasks Hal and Karen to scout the two roads to find out which one they're coming down, while the rest of them wait at the train station.("Live and Learn")
In Compass, when Ben and Jimmy go out in search of skitters, they find a pack of three in the woods. Using new dragons breath rounds, Jimmy waits as Ben attracts the three to their location. Jimmy shoots and kills two of the skitters, before firing at the red eyed skitter. The skitter dodges the round, before Jimmy approaches for a close range kill. The skitter again dodges his attack, before punching Jimmy into a tree, impaling him on a branch. As Ben approaches to kill the skitter, it raises its hand, causing the spines on Ben's back to glow and stopping him. Jimmy later dies from his wounds after an attempt is made to save his life.
