The mystery of who bugged the Walker household is officially over. 

But I don’t think that the case is closed just yet. 

On Walker Season 2 Episode 4, Cordell informed his family that they were being watched before launching a whole secret mission to prove and trap Serano as the culprit. 

However, Liam wasn’t convinced it was Serano at all and had his heart set on the Davidson’s being behind it. 

And neither of them were wrong!

Serano’s men did bug the house, but David, Denice’s husband, paid them for access to spy on the Walker family as part of some long-running feud between the families that dates back to the barn fire years ago. 

Denice and Walker decided to lay a trap by getting a little too cozy at the Walker household, which definitely fired up David who assumed he was watching his wife cheat on him in real-time. 

The fact that these two are having marital problems didn’t make the situation any better. 

And Denice and Walker really laid it on thick. There’s obviously chemistry and history between them, but it was hilarious to see them getting into “character.”

Things were only made more awkward by Geri’s arrival. 

Talk about poor timing. 

Walker tried to get her out of there so quickly, but when she refused to leave, Denice stepped in and cut Geri off from likely addressing her feelings for Walker. 

I honestly felt so bad for her at that moment. She clearly thought she walked in on some private affair, and there was no time for Walker to explain that it was all part of an undercover op. 

I’m sure Geri will understand eventually, but will she be able to move past it?

Walker didn’t have time to dwell on it because of the case. If his house was bugged then Serano’s people likely bugged the DA’s house. 

Before they could even investigate, however, the culprit made his way to Walker’s house. 

Liam was almost caught in the crossfire, but it was actually David who stopped the shooter dead in his tracks and saved his life. 

While Liam should’ve been grateful, he couldn’t shake the fact that David was there because he was spying on them. 

Listen, Liam’s gut has been right thus far, so I would suggest they listen to him. 

It’s hard to be mad at the man who saves your life, but it’s also pretty terrible when he’s part of the reason you’re in that situation in the first place. 

Walker and Liam got into a heated argument over it, and I hate to say that Walker will feel pretty salty once the truth comes to light and reveals David’s involvement. 

Because the truth always comes to light. 

It’ll also be pretty awkward for Denice who basically scolded Walker for considering the possibility that her family could be behind the bugging. 

Could you blame him?

There’s definitely potential for a Denise and Walker romance — two lovers, two forbidden families — but that’s down the road once she finds out the truth about what David did. 

And before that could ever happen, we also need to know the truth about that barn fire. 

Stella and Colton are getting closer than ever. A man who will pull the fire alarm to help you get out of finishing the SAT’s is a man who had some feelings for you. 

While I can’t condone the behavior, Stella wasn’t in the right frame of mind to take that test after finding out she was being watched for weeks. 

This relationship may be thriving, but Trey and Micki’s is hanging on by a thread, mostly because of her guilt over what happened with Garrison. 

Trey deserves to know the truth, but it also needs to happen when Micki is ready. 

She’s been living in denial, which isn’t ideal for her relationship or career. Instead of taking the time to come to terms with what happened and to grieve, she lunged right back into her work which made her careless. 

Micki ignored direct orders from Captain James and went rogue. Her heart was in the right place wanting to protect her team, but the recklessness could’ve cost them a life. 

Taking time off from the force is the best thing she could do for herself. 

And if her heart isn’t in the relationship with Trey anymore, I really do hope she tells him sooner rather than later. 

What did you think of the episode? Should the Walker’s trust the Davidson’s?

Will David’s secret come to light? What happened at the barn?

And what will that map that was found in the home help them prove? That the barn was on their land when it burned down?

Walker Review – Let’s Go, Let’s Go (411)

Walker Review Let's Go Let's Go Season 4 Episode 11

Walker and his team suffered a major blow during their hunt for the Jackal on Walker Season 4 Episode 11. 

If I’m this frustrated with a case, I know that they are over with how this serial killer keeps outsmarting and evading them. It’s taken so much from them in terms of sanity, time, and even loved ones, as we saw James spiral back into old habits that once again put his home life with Kelly in the crossfire, and Walker’s hallucinatory dream showed that one of his biggest regrets in life was not being there for his family enough; for the big and small moments. 

As the Jackal pumped up Walker with drugs, the hallucination began like a dream as Cordell finally had his wife back. In reality, Cordell was living through a nightmarish situation before being buried alive. 

I’m typically not a fan of hallucination/dream episodes, but this one was interesting as it examined Cordell’s life and motivations through the lens of his funeral. It was his subconscious bubbling to the surface, but it was showing him how his absence made others feel. The message was loud and strong, though he wasn’t entirely open to receiving it, even when Emily urged him to let it go and get back to reality.

The drugs pumped into his system were so strong that if it wasn’t for Cordell’s team tracking him down, he would’ve suffered the same fate so many of Jackal’s victims have over the years. I guess it’s slightly reassuring to know that they have no idea of what’s going on in their final moments of life, but it still doesn’t make the situation any better, especially knowing that Jackal almost killed two rangers as they were on his tail. 

While they got to Cordell just in time, David Luna didn’t have the same amount of luck—and it was honestly the most heartbreaking development in this season-long case. 

When I say the Jackal took loved ones, I also mean physically, as it seems Luna succumbed to his injuries and died in Cassie’s arms, which we know is going to absolutely destroy her as she was just coming around to admitting that she loved him.

I’m hoping that maybe there’s a reality where Luna still has a pulse and is spared, but it’s not looking good for him. Their pursuit of the Jackal meant that he was getting sloppy and needed to tie up loose ends, which included Luna as he took his eye off the prize. 

I knew it wasn’t going to bode well for him when he made that overly long phone call to Cassie, which was super sappy, and she hesitated to say the “L” word, something we know she’ll come to regret if he doesn’t make it. 

They could’ve saved that conversation for another time so that neither of them lost focus and allowed themselves to be ambushed by the Jackal. And if I’m being realistic, I don’t think this is a one-man show. One man wouldn’t be able to take out David Luna all while moving Cordell and burying him in a shallow grave. I think there’s a team working here, which is how they’ve been able to stay ahead of the police. 

Either way, the desire to stop and capture the Jackal is only growing stronger now that he’s targeted two of the Rangers’ own men. And maybe it’s time to bring in backup because this isn’t something they can handle on their own. 

As for Cassie, I hope she hasn’t lost the love of her life in such a senseless way—she deserves a shred of happiness. 

And with only two episodes on the horizon, I hope this case helps Cordell reframe what’s really important in life, and that includes slowing down and appreciating all the love he’s surrounded by, including his new romance with Geri. Maybe it’s time he stop running by leaving the rangers behind? 

What did you think of the episode? Do you think Luna’s really dead?

Walker Review – The Jackal Returns and Claims His First Victim (404)

Walker Review Season 4 Episode 4 Insane B.S. and Bloodshed Jackal Returns

Walker Season 4 Episode 4 made some major movement on two core storylines this season—the case of the Jackal and the mystery behind Witt’s death/resurrection. 

I’m torn between which one is more intriguing as they both have a lot going for them. Cassie was clued in on the Jackal case mere moments before she was sent into the thick of the action—and quite frankly, I wasn’t a huge fan of Walker and Trey on the sidelines for most of the episode. However, I do think that it was necessary so that we got a sense of the case through the newcomer’s eyes as everyone else, particularly Captain James, who was being kept in the dark, has already been tainted by the darkness. 

When they found Abby’s mother buried alive at the end of the episode with a Jackal tooth in her mouth, confirming their worst fears that the serial killer has resurfaced, you could see all of those past emotions from the case bubbling up to the surface for everyone. And Cassie finally understood why Walker and Trey were walking around on eggshells around James until they could get more proof (and at the insistence of his wife Kelly)—the toll the case takes on someone emotionally and physically is not for the faint of heart. 

This is the first time Walker has ever tackled a storyline as dark as a serial killer, but it’s exciting to see everyone get involved and put all of their acquired skills to the test. James might feel betrayed by Walker—and everyone else on his team—but I hope that seeing the Jackal back in action and feeling all those horrible emotions reminds him exactly why his loved ones chose to spare him until they had more concrete evidence. They know he’s a grown man who can handle it, but they didn’t want to see him spiral the same way he did previously; it was all coming from a place of love and concern. 

The partnership between Cassie and Det. Luna was interesting as the chemistry was unexpected—I’d almost go as far as saying that it was too flirtatious while dealing with such a serious matter. But then I also couldn’t help but shake the feeling that Luna is the Jackal. There was a certain charm about him that would be able to fool and woo a ton of people into their final moments.

Wouldn’t it be smart to hide in plain sight and stay one step ahead of everyone? He has been scoping the motel out, but he seemed to know a whole lot about everything and everyone. I’d like to think that I’m wrong, but maybe part of the Jackal’s elusiveness is his proximity to the people hunting him down.

Next on the list is Witt McCarthy, who, in a shocking twist, isn’t actually dead. He also isn’t as dangerous as Stella and Sadie believed him to be when he forced them to drive at gunpoint. Witt has simply exhausted all his other options of being on the run and faking his own death so that he could lay low and avoid the person hunting him and his now-dead friend Jordan—a woman who targeted Geri intentionally to steal a necklace. It’s unclear why the necklace is so important, or if she still has it, but it’s safe to say that the break-in was not an accident. 

Witt then allows Stella and Sadie to go free, asking them for forgiveness and help in return. Sadie is determined to go to the station and tell Cordell, and in a surprising twist, it’s Stella who decides against it. She knows that the minute she tells her father the truth she’s essentially sealed Witt’s fate. The woman is after Witt, and if she doesn’t get what she wants, she’ll kill him, and the blood will once again be on Stella’s hands. She felt such a huge relief being absolved of that guilt that she can’t in good faith just turn her back on him.

But it’s also too much to carry on her own, and when Sadie leaves town again, Stella shares the burden with August. Seeing them team up as a supportive brother-sister duo has always been one of my favorite parts of the show, so I’m looking forward to seeing this pan out. 

Stella may be in over her head, but at least August has her back. 

And as for the necklace, does Geri have it? Does it have any significance? Does the woman have some kind of connection to Geri or the Walker family in general?

 What did you think of the April 24, 2024 Walker episode on The CW? Do you have any theories worth sharing?

Walker Review - Lessons From the Gift Shop (4x03)

Walker Season 4 Episode 3 kicked Stella’s PTSD storyline into high gear, as it was revealed that she wasn’t simply overthinking or being consumed by the trauma—someone was really hunting her and Sadie for Witt’s murder. 

The ominous sign in her dorm room frightened her, and rightfully so, as it was just the beginning of the threats. Sadie tried to dismiss it, but she soon realized Stella had every reason to worry as her car was doused in gasoline, with a photo of Witt and a box of matches left behind. 

They were able to come up with some leads, but before they followed up on them, they carved out some time for the family sale at the HQ before calling it a night, only to find an unwelcome surprise waiting for them in the backseat of their car—Witt with a gun placed to Stella’s head. 

And that effectively answers Sadie’s question as to who might be hunting them down, though, the question of why still remains. 

Witt is very much alive and exacting his revenge, but until we know why he was at Geri’s place and targeting Sadie and Stella in the first place, we won’t know what it is that he actually wants from them.

Witt and Sadie have a past—one that she’s not proud of—so an educated guess is that he’s following up on that. 

Whatever it is, it’s clear Witt is a bad guy. And despite Walker’s trying to give his daughter space, he’s going to need to get involved sooner rather than later. 

What’s unclear is if he has any connection to Walker’s serial killer case. While that would be intriguing, I don’t see there being any logical or obvious connection between the two, especially since the case of The Jackal comes with a history dating back years prior. 

However, it’s still top of mind for Cordell and Trey, who have now roped in Cassie. The only part that threw her off? That they’re keeping it on the hush-hush from the Captain, who, as we previously found out, couldn’t be looped in because of the toll that the case previously took on his life and relationship. It cost him a great deal before, but I also don’t know how they’ll be able to work it off the books, especially as Jackal starts leaving behind a trail of clues and bodies. When it picks up momentum, it’s going to need all of their attention. 

Other moments throughout the episode kept things more grounded as Cassie and Liam bonded while going through her storage unit as she planted her roots in Austin and moved in with Geri. Trey also gave August a bit of a reality check with his first boot camp session—which Bonham wants to get involved in because the youth these days is “soft”—though it’s clear he has a long way to go before getting this “adult” thing down. It’s a science, and as Trey informed him, it’s definitely not all or nothing. You cannot allow yourself to get consumed by the activity of the moment—you need your hobbies for a little bit of a reprieve when things get tough to keep you sane. 

As for Geri and Cordell, they finally said the L-word to each other for the first time, which was a big step in their communication. It’s not easy navigating a romance later on in life, especially a romance with a person you’ve known your whole life. Nothing about their relationship is easy, but it’s their future, so Walker has to stop living in the past and looking through that lens if he wants to make this work. They made some good progress, so I’m interested to see how he’ll balance a taxing case, being a dad who constantly has to worry about his kiddos, and his personal life throughout the season.
