Tyler did see Mikey again and tried to go after him, but was stopped again by Duncan MacLeod and this time they fought. Tyler was defeated and beheaded by Duncan.
According to the DVD profile on Tyler King, his Watcher, Lino Ortega took a disliking to Tyler King from the beginning. In the Chronicle of King, he wondered why famous poets, writers, and so forth, died so young, but never understood how Tyler King lived longer than any of them when his only contribution to society was leaving a heavy bar tab and fashion tips.
