Season 1

"The Rooster Prince"

Wrench is first seen with Grady driving down the freeway to Hess & Sons Transport. There, they meet with Max Gold. Numbers tells Max they are from Fargo, North Dakota, and have come over to find out what happened to Sam Hess. They are told he was murdered, and Max gives them a description of the man that came into the shop the same day. He, along with Numbers, visit The Lucky Penny, the place where Sam was murdered. They speak with the owner of the club, as well as Paprika, the girl Sam was with right before he died. She says it could be Lenny, another man who frequently visits the club and fits the description. They find Lenny drinking at the bar and talk to him. Lenny threatens to stab them, and Wrench knocks him out and he is put in the trunk of their car. They return to the Hess & Sons with Lenny, only for Max to tell him that he doesn't think it's him. Wrench is later seen with Numbers dragging Lenny out onto the frozen lake and dropping Lenny into an ice hole while he is still alive and conscious.

"A Fox, A Rabbit, and A Cabbage"
