Walker 1×06, Season 1, Episode 6, “Bar None” aired on The CW March 11, 2021
Not one twist, but two in Walker 1×06?! We did not see those coming and our heads are still spinning! GAH! Okay, okay – before we get to those huge reveals, let’s breakdown what happened on Walker 1×06 because there were so many great moments before those two giant bombshells.
Just another day? The anniversary of Emily’s death is here and, as much as Cordell says it’s not a huge deal, it’s a very big deal. The kids want to mark the day by camping with their Dad, but Cordell gets distracted by the problems at the Side Step. Walker’s parents step in to take the kids camping, but Stella has already extended an invite to the cute barn boy she met. He’s a little too cute and sweet and honestly, we should have known he was up to something.
Bar for Sale. At the start of the episode, Geri (ugh, Geri) wants to sell the Side Step, but Cordy is not having it. The bar is filled with memories of Emily and it’s clear that Cordell isn’t as “okay” as he lets on. And after a beam falls in the bar, Cordell makes the bar a crime scene in order to stop the sale, but it really just needs some repairs – by a REAL handyman (sorry Cordell). We love that it’s Emily who was the handy one and Cordell proves that by nailing his had to a beam. Oh, buddy.
Micki’s Mom. We have heard many things about Micki’s mom, but now we get to meet her ourselves! (I know we shouldn’t love her, but we so do!) She Micki’s worst nightmare and now, she’s Cordell’s too. After Cordell’s rough encounter with a civilian a few episodes ago, he must have a psych evaluation and Micki thinks her mom is trying to destroy Cordell’s career in order to punish Micki. Yikes.
Man on the inside. Now let’s get down to the real dirt of this season – Emily’s murder! James and Liam are still working on their hunch and decide to loop in Hoyt (in prison) in order to get some info from the man who confessed to Emily’s murder. Hoyt is a schemer and slimy as heck, but he loved Emily and he is all in on the plan to get the truth out of Carlos. Within hours he bonds with Carlos and learns that he is dying AND that his niece has a successful art gallery over the boarder. (More on this in a moment!)
Prep and repairs. Micki spends her day with Cordell to help him “fix” the Side Step and to do a little mock interview in order to prepare him for the wrath of her mother. It’s so very clear that Micki is avoiding her mother as she helps Cordell repair the Side Step and it’s also very clear that this bar means so much to Cordell because of Emily.
Hard truths. Micki and Cordell do some yelling and some drinking and realize they need to face their emotions a little more. We love these two when they are being sassy and giving each other fun jabs, but we really love seeing them truly confront their emotions and call each other out on some stuff. It was also nice to hear Cordell acknowledge that the system is not fair and that he is making an effort to not abuse it.
Bar camping. Cordell and the kids spend the night camping in the Side Step and it’s the perfect way to honor Emily. And when Geri (ugh, Geri) comes in in the morning, they decide to buy the place – Denise and all! They are going to turn it into a family place in honor of their mom.
OMG. Now we need to talk about the reveals in Walker 1×06!
Reveal #1 – After they got some info from Hoyt, James and Liam start doing some digging on Carlos’ niece to see if they can connect any other dots and HOLY SH*T. Turns out the company that they think is buying Carlos niece’s art as hush money is Geri’s company! GERI?! Is it possible that Geri was somehow involved in Emily’s death? This whole time we thought they were BFF’s. What the actual f*ck?!
Reveal #2 – The cutie McCute boy that Stella brought on the camping trip was super sweet and kind and we were fully prepared to love him and ship them, but he’s not just some random fella – he’s the son of the leader of the Rodeo Kings! WHAT?! STELLLAAAAAAAAA!
