Walker Season 1 Episode 5 Recap
Walker Season 1 Episode 5 titled “Duke” starts with a flashback where we see Walker working undercover. His name is Duke Culpepper, a Texas Ranger assigned to clean up after the rodeo. During her time in disguise, she impresses a regular, Twyla Jean. Currently, she was trying to meet the Duke again, so August responded. Now, wanting to keep her family safe, she had to meet him so as not to blow up his cover. When he had a panic attack, he went to a remote place for August then went to a remote place turning into his alter ego, Duke. He then meets Twyla at a cheap motel. Elsewhere, Micki Ramirez is discussing with his girlfriend, Trey, about taking their relationship to the next level. After this, he was briefed by Captain Larry James and Walker brother Liam on how Walker would go undercover again.
$ 300,000 is still missing, leading the FBI to suspect that Walker is clean. This was because he refused to testify for fear of his family that they might be vulnerable to the bank robber, Rodeo Kings.
When Duke meets Twyla, they are interrupted by a cruel colleague, Jackson. He approached the Duke, who was immediately saved by Micki under the pseudonym Adrianna. The two of them think quickly of running away and plan a new heist to catch the remaining bank robbers. We even looked to Liam about how he convinced Walker to stay undercover longer so he could build a more detailed case against the muggers.
As Walker tries to maintain his guise, he’s distracted by his past conversations as we flash back. We returned to the first day when the assignment ended. Here, he was cornered by the Texas Rangers and the FBI. The hardest part was the leader of the gang, Clint West, who started a gun battle that burned everything. During this time, we see that his seriously injured girlfriend, Crystal, has hidden the stolen $ 300,000 in the karaoke bar’s jukebox. Now, in the present, he tries to steal money for himself, but he is intercepted by the FBI. After this, we finally witness the end of Walker’s undercover life as he fakes his death in a fake gunfight.
