Garrison is definitely the one who got away, that’s for sure.
Walker Season 2 Episode 2 was one of the most intense episodes to date. Things always get crazy during undercover missions since so much is at stake.
It was nice to see Micki steal the spotlight for a change with Walker coming in with an assist.
Micki’s undercover gig took a dark turn when she came face-t0-face with Garrison, her ex-boyfriend.
There were obviously a lot of unresolved feelings between them, not to mention a lot of chemistry to boot.
It was clear that Micki and Garrison were on two different paths, but they worked well together.
He didn’t give up her cover to Serrano and immediately informed her that he could be her CI and give her the evidence to take the gang leader down because he wanted an “out.”
Since Serrano killed Spider and was cleaning up all of his messes, it was only a matter of time before he also turned on Garrison.
It’s a kill or be killed kind of world, so he was trying to get ahead of the “be killed” part.
And it almost worked. They had some solid leads on Serrano, but eventually, Garrison had to walk into the lion’s den in order to ensure that they finally got the guy.
By then, Serrano was onto Garrison, and he tasked him with shooting Cordell Walker — without missing this time.
Micki was so blinded by her past with Garrison that she didn’t even realize he was the Austin shooter she was looking for.
And in order to save Cordell this time, Mici had to take down Garrison.
It’s an impossible position to be in considering that there were still very real feelings for Garrison.
Through their final adventure together, we found out that they were in a very serious relationship together and that Micki pretty much left him at the altar.
The whole gig was a trip down memory lane, so it definitely got Micki in her feels slightly.
It wasn’t easy to push Garrison out of the way, and though she saved Cordell’s life, you could see she immediately regretted it as Garrison slipped through her fingers.
He fell to his death because of her and right in front of her.
In his final moments, he uttered “it’s not your fault,” which at least absolved her from a bit of the guilt.
This is the life Garrison carved for himself, and no matter what she did or didn’t do, Serrano would’ve gotten him one way or the other.
At least in his death, he was able to help the love of his life one last time. He helped bring down Serrano and spared Walker’s life.
He went down a hero.
Micki mourned his death with some bourbon and the mixtape he made thinking of her, but that’s not going to be enough.
She’s tough, but that’s a hard thing to bounce back from no matter the headspace.
Throughout all of this, she pushed Trey away. He kept reaching out and inquiring about her, but she wasn’t the least bit interested in responding or assuring him that she was okay.
Earlier this week, the shocking and heartbreaking news that Lindsey Morgan is exiting the series, and I think this is the catalyst for her to hang up the ranger hat.
Micki is likely going to need to take time to figure things out without Trey.
It’s a huge loss for Walker, but at least the exit won’t be abrupt in terms of storytelling.
We’ll just have to see Trey deal with that heartbreak.
While it’s going to be difficult for him, I hope that he sticks around because he’s a good addition to the small town and a great coach.
He found a way to turn detention into a learning moment by pairing up the foursome and throwing them into a sort of escape room that relied heavily on trust and communication.
The result? A romance brewing between Colton and Stella.
Colton was smitten when he saw Stella handling the horse.
Of course, that’s yet another Romeo and Juliet kind of love considering the beef between the Davidson family and the Walker family.
It’s unclear what exactly happened the night of the fire that killed Denice’s father, but I don’t think it was solely Walker’s fault.
Can they hash things out so that we’re all on the same page?
Stella always has the worst luck with men and their families.
It definitely seems like there are sparks flying between Denice and Walker, which I’m not thrilled about because I’m rooting for him and Jerri.
When are they going to have their moment in the sun?
What will happen when the family’s come together for a good old fashioned cook-off? Will feelings get hurt over some chili?
I can’t wait to find out!

Walker Review – Two Points for Honesty (2×08)
It was a bit touch and go for the Captain on Walker Season 2 Episode 8.
And while all signs pointed to Serano/his men being responsible for the hit on Trey and the bullets that injured Larry, it turned out not to be connected at all.
Admittedly, it’s an interesting choice to segue away from the Serano case to introduce another shooter with the motive.
I guess that’s par for the course when you’re in law enforcement and make enemies left and right, but for storytelling purposes, it simply made things more confusing.
The shooter ended up being a man named Cole who was arrested by Larry before he even rose up the ranks to Captain. He was recently released from prison and wanted revenge.
And though there was a hospital crawling with Texas Rangers, he somehow found his way into Larry’s room to confront him — with a gun.
Thankfully, by that time, Liam already figured it out and Walker was right there to interfere.
While the Captain wanted to mitigate the situation since understood Cole’s anger and felt it was warranted, I don’t really know why he thought there would ever be another outcome.
When they saw a man standing at the Captain’s hospital bed with a gun, it was deemed an immediate risk that needed to be terminated.
Cole couldn’t have waltzed into the room thinking there would be a different outcome either.
The Captain admitted that he was in power so that he could change how things are run, which I admire, but I don’t think he realizes just how risky the situation actually was.
This is a man who engaged in a full-on shootout with him. He was following him, tailing his every move, and he was upset to find out Larry survived.
Larry might want to see the best in people, but sometimes, that’s simply not possible.
And though he felt personally responsible for the path Cole took, it was beyond his control.
Moving forward, the Captain and Walker will work together to reform the Rangers, and that might not be such a bad idea.
It’s been one thing after the other for these guys — they need to catch a break.
Especially Walker. I’m not surprised that he doesn’t want to endure the pressure of being the guy who makes all the tough calls.
He’s better at being the one that answers the calls. His dynamic with Larry is too special, so it would be a shame to mess that up, particularly with Micki gone.
But now that the Cap wants to share his governing responsibilities, it opens up a sport for a new Mick. Perhaps Jack? The cop who responded to the call and rushed Trey and Cap over to the hospital.
Something also tells me she might be a permanent fixture on the show, and Trey’s new squeeze.
Once again, the series left the best for last during a blunt conversation between Liam and Stan.
Stan gave Liam very clear instructions on where to find incriminating information about the Davidson family pertaining to the barn fire.
Since he represented the family following the fire, he knows all the secrets.
And, he’s willing to share because, at this point, he has nothing to lose.
I’m intrigued to learn more because the mystery of the Davidson’s and the fire has been looming all season long.
Did they purposefully set the fire to gain land? To murder Marv? In an attempt to kill Mawlin?
It also seems like the promo is teasing that Gale’s husband is in cahoots with Serano. Hopefully, this unearths that he was the one that was spying on them using the cameras.
I need Liam to finally feel redeemed for always thinking the worst of that family.
It’s going to be unfortunate for the friendship between the Walker kids and the Davidson boy, however.
It’s never fair when children pay the price for their parents mistakes, but in this case, it seems unavoidable.
There were some sweet moments throughout the episode, including Larry patching things up with his ex wife, Kelly, Bonham giving Trey a key to the barn, Walker’s emotional pep talk from Geri, and Stella and Auggie being a support system for DJ.
Walker wins when it comes to those relatable family moments, but the overall storyline just feels like a jumbled mess with no sense of direction half the time.

Walker Review – [SPOILER] Gets Shot (2×07)
Why does Walker always wait till the very last minute to bring in the action?
Much of Walker Season 2 Episode 7 felt like a wash as everyone just spent time talking about their feelings.
It’s fine sometimes, but this was overkill to the point that I found myself tuning out.
The moments that connect back to Emily Walker fall flat because she’s not a main character. We know she means a great deal to Cordi and the Walker kids, but it’s hard to feel the nostalgia or sentiment when we don’t have any memories with her.
The rest of the hour was mostly spent on Serano’s lawyers, Liam getting way too drunk, Stella questioning her future, and Trey moving on from Micki.
Trey isn’t the only one hurt by Micki’s decision — the viewers are feeling the fallout of Lindsey Morgan’s exit just as much.
I’ve enjoyed the series, even with its flaws, for two full seasons, but it felt empty without Micki.
Was she the glue holding the show together?
After her departure, the whole situation with Serano seems overly confusing. I’ll admit, I don’t even know what they want anymore.
All I know is that Liam called in a false police report on the Davidsons, which made things pretty difficult for Cordi’s case.
Serano’s lawyers wanted a statement from Liam, but when he chose not to participate, they seemed all too thrilled.
That’s when he, in his intoxicated state, realized that they were going to use Cordell’s misconduct against him to throw the case away, so he decided that it was wise to show up at the headquarters drunk.
It led to a really strange and awkward exchange with Serano’s lawyers, and eventually, a tender moment between brothers.
Cordell and Liam fight, but they always have each other’s back, and that’s the sweetest part.
Liam admitted that he’s been feeling pretty lost and embarrassed by his actions, so hopefully, this is his wake-up call to get back on track. If he does, he could even get back together with Brett, who also came to support him through this trying time.
Stella struggled with making a decision about her future, though, eventually, she landed on possibly going to college in Maine. Considering all that she’s been through this semester alone, maybe it’s not such a bad idea for her to get out of town.
The series keeps stressing the relationship between Abeline and Colton’s late grandfather. There’s definitely a connection to the barn there, I just don’t know what it is. Were they having an affair the night of the fire?
Is that why Auggie found a lantern in the barn with his family’s brand?
And for the most shocking moment — Serano’s men tried to take out Trey and got the Cap instead.
Based on where the Cap was shot, I think he’ll be just fine. It’ll be a long road to recovery, but he’s not going to die.
However, it definitely underscores just how dangerous Serano is.
I’m just glad they didn’t get Trey. Could you imagine literally getting shot while you’re trying to mend a broken heart?
And Trey was only on Seran’s radar because he went to visit Micki, which is totally unfair.
As I mentioned previously, the episode was pretty dull until that final shooting, which jolted me out of the couch.
Will Cordell find a way to make this case even more personal even though he was told to stay out of it?
Will Captain Larry pull through? How are the Davidson’s connected to all of this? And will the real story about what caused the rift between their families finally come to light!
Sound off in the comments below! Are you starting to lose interest in Walker? Is it starting to lose the little bit of edge that it had?
Walker Review – Micki Says Goodbye (2×06)
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas on Walker Season 2 Episode 6.
The series got into the festive spirit, well, for the most part. There were lights, sure, Christmas tree, yes, and even snow, but the underlying tone of the episode was far from jolly.
Let’s start with the biggest kicker — Micki has left the building.
When she turned in her badge, I’ll admit, it made me much more emotional than I thought it would.
Micki has been on quite a journey after reconnecting with her ex-fiance while undercover. Not only that, but she let him slip away, quite literally, and lost him for good.
There’s no bouncing back from that.
She thought she could get back on the horse and fix things, but too much was both said and unsaid between her and Trey.
Trey didn’t trust her, and once you lose someone’s trust, that’s all there is.
You also can’t blame Trey for questioning the relationship. Throughout much of Walker, she had trouble committing to him and she kept saying that it’s because commitment is so new to her, but now he finds out that she was one step away from tying the knot.
As much as she wanted Trey to be the right person for her, he wasn’t, and that’s not something you can just force.
Micki also lost herslef in the process.
She lost the love for her job, she lost the meaning of wanting to push forward, and she made the bold decision to walk away and find herself before it was too late.
Her actions, though heartbreaking, are commendable.
She wasn’t in the right headspace to do the job anymore; she wasn’t the Ranger she wanted to be, so she stepped away.
It’s a huge loss for both Captain James and Walker. Micki was the best partner he has — she pulled him back from the brink when he was under, and she continuously kept him in line.
They balanced each other well, so it truly is a bummer.
Hopefully, the next partner Walker has will be half as great as Micki.
And as Captain James said, the door is always open if she ever wants to return.
As much as I loved Micki, I’m hoping that Trey gets a solid relationship moving forward. That man has so much love to give, and he deserves someone worthy that can give it back.
Now, onto Walker and Liam’s adventure to Thalia, Texas to hunt down Serano’s group that robbed an evidence truck with reindeer masks.
See — festive.
Denise suggested Liam assist Walker since everyone in town know she was a DA and would never talk.
Unfortunately, Liam’s hatred towards the Davidson family got the best of him.
Admittedly, Dan Miller was acting pretty shady, so it wasn’t surprising that Liam and Walker suspected his involvement.
Even Gale seemed like she was trying to throw them off of Dan’s scent.
But Liam’s actions were uncalled for. He should’ve heeded Walker’s advice to follow the breadcrumbs rather than calling in to get around a warrant.
There was always a chance that Dan was innocent.
Liam should definitely talk to someone.
Unfortunately, his actions are only going to make the Davidson/Walker rivalry worse.
At least he was honest with Denise about what he did. I’m obviously not entirely convinced Dan is innocent either.
His hatred for the Walker’s is also unhinged. He joined Serano’s men to use surveillance to watch Walker, so I’m not putting anything past him.
Maybe Liam’s gut will be right in the end.
There’s also the whole mystery of the barn fire, which I’m hoping will be resolved when new episodes in 2022.
Sadly, this is going to hurt the kids the most as they’re all forming a pretty sweet friendship.
Elsewhere, Auggie admitted to injuring himself by breaking into the Davidson barn. Poor Walker didn’t even have the energy to think of a punishment on the spot.
Also, Buh-Humbug Bonham is my new favorite Christmas grinch. Though, in the end, he did find the holiday spirit after all when he embraced the St. Bonham spirit.
What did you think of the final Walker episode of 2021?
