Who died in The Terminal List Season 1?

July 1, 2022

This article, “Who Died in The Terminal List Season 1,” contains spoilers regarding the Amazon original series.

Access recaps, reviews and news from The Terminal List.

You don’t adapt Jack Carr’s ever-popular series for streaming TV without expecting a death count. For one thing, the main characters all have deadly military training. Second, it’s the story of a man avenging the murders of his wife and nine-year-old daughter. Not only will the main character, Jack Reece, likely kill those responsible, but possibly anyone associated with it. As he says throughout the series, it’s a battlefield, stretching from the streets of San Francisco to Mexico.

Just be careful if you see him. You don’t get in his way.

who died in The list of terminals season 1?

Ben Edwards

It turns out that Reece’s best friend was the anonymous stockholder who profited from the death of the SEAL team. He explains that he did it because Admiral Pillar assured him that all men would die from their terminal conditions. Reece shoots himself in the head, off-camera, in the cabin of Ben’s sailboat in the season finale.


The only survivor of Reece’s team left us in the second episode by the hand. Except he was killed by the men and women behind Kahani’s ambush cover-up and made to look like a suicide. How did Reece figure it out? Well, they planted a nine millimeter gun as the murder weapon because it was standard issue. Boozer only used a .45 caliber.

James Reece’s entire Navy SEAL team

The opening episode had Reece’s Navy SEAL team ambushed on a mission to capture a chemical weapons terrorist named Kahani. All but one of his men are laid to rest that day, including a handful of Syrian forces and US support troops from the SFD.


Fox News reported the death. Reece sees the story when Secretary Hartley is at a military bar. This was done to end the cover story in hopes that Reece would back down.

Lauren and Lucy Reece

In a shocking and heartbreaking scene, two sicarios kill Reece’s wife and daughter to fake the death of a military husband/father with PTSD. This happened when Reece left for the CT scan, where the doctor was also shot.

Marcus Boykin

A man who profited from the experience and access to sicarios he commissioned for Steve Horn because of his ties to Mexico’s big oil companies. Reece took it out with a sniper shot in Wyoming.

Mike Tedesco

Nubellum’s owner lost his authority with the company when Capstone Industries purchased controlling shares. He is shot and killed while running from two of Horn’s private security guards down a stairwell after leaking damning evidence to the media.

Pillar, Cox and Howard

Reece’s bosses, all three men, administered RD-4895 to the SEAL team. Reece drowned Commander Cox in the ocean and blew up Admiral Pillar by strapping a bomb to Captain Howard’s chest. Howard walked into Pillar’s office to do the deed, or Reece said he would kill his son.

Private Security

Dozens of Steve Horn’s private security personnel died at the hands of Reece and a handful of those bought by Hartley – including a cold death of Reece killing an unarmed man who posed no threat to him.

Saul Agnon

Reece injected a lethal amount of methadone into Capstone’s account manager because he was the intermediary between the company and Holder. He passed it off as a drug overdose.


I don’t know how many sicarios left the planet that day. I think I counted at least 15 men and that of the pilot. However, the primary target was whoever escaped that night from murdering Reece’s family. That man is El Navajas, whom Reece injured by stabbing him in the left forearm. Reece hung the man up and gutted him with a hatchet. He then suspended his intestines over his hands, cut him and made him walk until there was no more rope. He ended up bleeding.

Secretary Hartley

She shot herself in the forehead before Reece could do it for her. She endorsed the SEAL Team’s blind experiment without their permission in hopes of ending PTSD and reducing troop numbers to end the constant cycle of sending troops in and out of battle.

Steve Horn

The billionaire owner of Capstone Industries was shot in the head up close and personal by Commander James Reese on the stairs leading to his office building.

And that’s who died in the Amazon original series The Terminal season 1.
