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. 

What did you think of the episode? Let us know in the comments now.

Walker Series Finale Review – See You Sometime (413)

Walker Series Finale Review See You Sometime Season 4 Episode 13

Walker concluded its four-season run on Wednesday, June 26, on The CW—but while many elements lent themselves to a series finale, overall, it was evident that the creative forces weren’t anticipating that this would be their final season (despite all the upheaval and uncertainty at the network as of late). 

For one thing, the final scene of the episode sparked widespread confusion amongst audiences, as it was a rather strange ending to introduce a brand-new character without any additional information, though, according to Jared Padalecki (Cordell) via TVLine, James Van Der Beek (a legend and OG The WB star) is a good personal friend who was going to “stir up” trouble as a cult-leader neighbor renting out the next door Davidson property. And, quite frankly, I’m kind of bummed that we won’t ever get to see that. 

There was so much more story left to tell when it came to the Walker’s—and for once, they were all finding their footing and the pieces were beginning to fall into place, leaving much to be desired from another season. Heck, I’d even settle for a few more episodes to wrap it all up. 

What about a time jump that allowed us to see Cassie in her new role as Lieutenant while also seeing her move on and finally find that happiness with Trey? The chemistry between them has been evident for awhile, even if the series took a bit of a detour to give her a romance with Detective Luna (Justin Johnson Cortez), who, quite frankly, was killed off the show too early. 

We know Cassie will be all right—she’s a resilient badass who can handle anything life throws her way, but it’s unfortunate we won’t be able to see the come-up after suffering such a major loss. 

During the battle for the promotion, it was Cassie versus Trey, which could’ve lent to some really great moments between the two finally coming to terms with their feelings for each other. It made sense that the role went to Cassie, as she showed that even in the darkest of days, she’s still a leader and a good ranger, but Trey absolutely deserves his moment down the line as he’s proven himself since joining the team. 

I assumed Cordell took all of his recent experiences and folded them into the decision to resign, especially considering how much being a ranger took from him, but I guess a leave of absence makes more sense if they thought the series would continue on. If it were up to me, he’d turn over his badge (or become a consultant) while going all-in with Geri on the Side Step 2.0. 

His most recent near-death experience was eye-opening, however, in the sense that he needed to be a more present father. His kids may be grown, with both of them flying the coop and heading off to college, but it’s never too late, and this may be one of their last opportunities for a solid family vacation. 

Again, it’s unfortunate that we won’t get to see the second phase of their life, with Cordell finally accepting his relationship with Geri and taking the next step by letting go of Emily and choosing to propose. Heck, we didn’t even get to see the proposal, which is upsetting in and of itself. There’s so much we got cheated out of—it would’ve made more sense for this to be a 2-hour finale so we could get all these last-minute touches.

Geri was always more invested in the relationship than Cordell, simply because he was still trying to figure out how to move on without disrespecting his late wife, but I’m glad he’s finally arrived at a place where there’s no more guilt. 

We didn’t even get any context as to what Liam’s role with the governor would be, or why the secret agents just arrived at his home mere moments after that mysterious phone call. Liam started the series as a go-getter lawyer before losing his way, and his ambition, for the next few seasons, but it’s nice to see him finding his place again. I just wish we could stick around to see it unfold. 

The only storyline that really seemed to get the closure it deserved was Bonham and Abeline’s. They know that their son is going to be alright, she has her business, and they are finally on the same page about making the most of their retirement—with the wind in their sails… and hair. Seeing them embrace this time together—so well deserved, might I add, after sacrificing so much for their family over the years—was worth it. 

What did you think of the finale? Did you feel cheated in the same way I did? Why didn’t we get more from Larry and his wife?

Do you agree with Padalecki when he says The new CW is just looking for the easy way out with “really easy, cheap content that they could fill up time with“? Because it sure seems like he’s right on the money when it comes to canceling all of our favorite shows without a second thought. 

I guess all good things must come to an end, and as we grieve Walker, we must also underscore that it might be one of the last remaining shows on The CW to ever represent what The CW meant to so many people, right along with the faces, like Padalecki’s, who have made the network a household name for so many years.

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?
