Walker Review – [SPOILER] Gets Shot (2×07)

Reviews

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?
