The stakes have become high now, as unless Walker maintains his cover, his family might be in grave danger.
Walker Season 1 Episode 5 Recap
Walker Season 1 Episode 5 titled “Duke” starts off with a flashback where we see Walker working undercover. His name was Duke Culpepper, a Texas Ranger assigned to clean up after rodeos. During his time undercover, he impressed a regular, Twyla Jean. At present, she was attempting to meet Duke again, so August responds to her. Now, wanting to keep his family safe, he must meet her so as to not blow his cover. As he has a panic attack, he grounds August then drives to a secluded spot changing into his alter ego, Duke. He then rendezvoused with Twyla at a cheap motel. Elsewhere, Micki Ramirez has a discussion with her boyfriend, Trey, regarding taking their relationship to the next level. After this, she is briefed by Captain Larry James and Walker’s brother Liam on how Walker was going undercover again.
The $300,000 was still missing, making the FBI suspicious whether Walker was clean. This was because he had refused to testify out of fear for his family that they might get vulnerable to the bank robbers, the Rodeo Kings.
As Duke meets with Twyla, they are interrupted by a violent associate, Jackson. He approaches Duke, who is soon saved by Micki under the alias of Adrianna. Both of them think quickly to get away and plan a new heist to catch the remaining bank robbers. We even get a look into Liam as to how he had convinced Walker to stay undercover longer so that he could build up a more detailed case against the robbers.
As Walker tries to maintain his cover, he is troubled by his past exchanges as we again go to a flashback. We head back to the initial day when the assignment ended. Here, he was cornered by Texas Rangers and the FBI. The most difficult being the gang leader, Clint West, who starts a shoot-out setting everything ablaze. During this, we see that his mortally wounded girlfriend, Crystal, had hidden the stolen $300,000 in a karaoke bar’s jukebox. Now, in the present time, she tries to steal the money for herself, but she is intercepted by the FBI. After this, we finally witness the end to Walker’s undercover life as he fakes his death in a faux shootout.
While Walker had his persona on, August tracks him down and nearly blows his cover. He confronts his dad regarding him potentially abandoning their family yet again. But, he had no choice but to continue at that point. After the mission, Walker goes to August, assuring him that he won’t be going back undercover. While he does so, he even burnt all his remaining articles from his time as Duke. Walker even clears up with Liam, how he does not resent him for making Walker go undercover longer. Privately, we see how Liam reveals to Captain James regarding irregularities in Emily’s murder, but both of them decide to keep this information with themselves for now.
