‘Walker’: A Tornado Brought in Harsh Realities

A tornado was the perfect bad omen to describe what was about to happen to Cordel Walker’s life in “Fine is a Four Letter Word.”

Walker (Jared Padalecki) knew that Carlos Mendoza (Joe Perez) didn’t kill his wife, but Liam (Keegan Allen) and Captain Larry James (Coby Bell) made him put the case to rest. Partially because they believed the case was solved and partially for his own good. Now, they can’t hide the fact that he was right, and it was devastating to watch.

Liam spent a week inside his office trying to work on the case and was also terrified to go home and see any of his family in case he put them in danger.

I think I’m going to like Keegan more as Liam than I did Toby in Pretty Little Liars. He cares so much. And Bret (Alex Landi) wasn’t wrong, he does like to control everything, but it comes out of a place of love.

It broke my heart that he told Bret that he cheated in Mexico. I get why he did it, but shouldn’t he let him decide? And, does it matter if they are together or not? If the enemy knows Liam cares about him, he’ll be a target regardless.

As much as I hate that this is their story at the moment, I loved seeing Keegen acting this vulnerable. He’s terrified for his brother, for Bret, for his family, for himself. He’s trapped in this situation he can’t get out of. It’s far from the confident lawyer that saw an episode ago.

He’s not wrong to be scared. The North Side Nation sounds very dangerous, and they did blow up his car. I’m ready for the show to shift gears towards searching for Emily’s (Genevieve Padalecki) killer. It feels like it will be a great intense storyline.

Liam wasn’t the only one to have a vulnerable moment. Micki (Lindsey Morgan) was not telling Trey (Jeff Pierre) that she found out her mother is really her aunt. I get that she says it would be true when she told him, but he wouldn’t judge. He’s such a caring person. He would have just been there.

We all do the same thing. We know we need to talk about something and instead bottle it inside. At least on TV, when they do it, the actors get to show their amazing talent when everything unravels.

Even Abeline (Molly Hagan) and Bonham (Mitch Pileggi) Walker, the perfect grandparents, and parents, have trouble communicating. I loved that he went to see the man his wife cheated on him with. Classic reaction. They had a sweet moment at the dance, though, but they still need to talk about it.

A lot of things came to a head-on “Fine is a Four Letter Word.” Stella (Violet Brinson) found out that Trevor (Gavin Casalegno) is the son of a man that her father sent to prison. While I don’t think Trevor was truly going along with his father’s plan, it still broke her heart. Where does that leave them now?

And it was such a fun dance. He made her a fort out of the mats to remind her of simpler times. He’s such a sweet guy. I hope there’s more to their story. They are so cute together.

The episode where we got to see Austin Nichols as a cowboy bank robber was fun. But seeing him as this criminal doesn’t fit in my mind. He’s Julian Baker of One Tree Hill. The cute, goofy guy that wasn’t good at making guy friends. And it’s not like this is the first bad guy I’ve seen him play. Before One Tree hill, he played the arrogant American tennis player in Wimbledon. So, he knows how to play hated characters well, and you can accept them. If he is a larger villain, I somewhat look forward to that, but he will always be Julian in my heart.

Please more Trey and Trickier! (Rebecca Brenneman/The CW)

One thing that has to continue being a thing is Trey, Micki and Walker working together. I love this threesome, and right after, I thought that, Trey was trying to come up with names for them.

Trey and Micki are Tricki, so they are Trickier! They can’t coin a name for this great threesome and not have them do team-ups again. They have amazing chemistry together. And I need more excuses to have Trey on screen. He’s cute and funny. I know this is Jared’s show, but it’s filled with so many amazing actors. And Trey is one of my favorites.
