Later on, it seems that Mickey is more involved, more willingly in Yevgeny's life and tries to be fatherly to him, while Ian enthusiastically helps take care of him.

In Crazy Love, Ian steals Yevgeny and takes him on a road trip in a full psychotic break which also shows Mickey's concern for his son's safety. After Ian is released, Mickey is shown Yevgeny by the cops and he is happy to see him again and holds his son.

Season 8

When Lana is imprisoned and nearly deported, V takes Yevgeny with her to visit Svetlana. Yevegeny is happy to see his mother and V uses him as a way to get Svetlana to accept her terms since she needed to be in her child's life. Lana looked at her son and reluctantly agreed to them.

  • He is named after his grandfather; Svetlana typically uses the Russian pronunciation of his name (Evgeni).
  • It is unknown if Mickey is Yevgeny's biological father. Another possibility is Terry, who also has had sex with Svetlana.
  • Since Mickey returned in season 10, there was no mention of Yevgeny.
