Walker (2021) s02e15 Episode Script

Bygones

´╗┐1 Hawk, I came to say thank you for saving me from that cult of demonic teens.
Who knew Satan's greatest weakness was kung fu? You don't have to thank me, Diana.
It's my job.
Whether it's a cult of demonic teens, a cyborg serial killer or just a pack of rabid bears that escape the zoo.
Whenever crime comes a-knockin', I'll be there to answer the caw-caw! Next time on Hawk's Shadow.
- What was that? - Oh.
Come on.
Look, it was the '90s.
It takes more episodes to get into it.
- Okay, let's watch one more.
- No, no, no, no, no.
Okay, let's not watch any more There's enough real-life drama going on right now.
Um I-I've been meaning to check in with you, ask how you're doing since Miles, um, see if you're okay.
I don't know.
I, uh Yeah, I was pretty torn up, being so wrong about Captain Cole.
But, two weeks out, it was cathartic.
Get some closure.
Good.
How 'bout you? You talk to Geri? No.
Not really.
You know, she's out of town right now.
She's on a girls' trip with Gale and Denise.
And I-I totally get that-that she-she feels like she needs to get to know them.
You know? I guess I thought that if we were gonna give "us" a go, it was gonna be, um, you know, all gas, no brakes.
And now I-I feel, uh I guess I feel betrayed.
I mean, Geri is my best friend, and it feels like she chose them and that family over me and-and my family.
And if you can't trust your best friend to stick by ya, then You can always trust your partner.
Oh.
Server's been accessed.
Perp should be coming out any minute.
Okay.
All right.
- Catch me back up, uh, crypto queen.
- Mm.
Give me the quick 30 seconds.
The server that holds the firm's crypto wallets - Right.
- approved unauthorized transactions - twice in the past month.
- Right.
So the firm thinks that it's an inside job because Okay.
Yep.
I got it, I got it.
All right, good.
- Oh.
- Could be him.
Yeah.
Yeah.
Excuse me.
Texas Rangers.
We'd like to ask you a couple questions.
Hey! Stop him! Stop him! Stop! Walker, wait! Wait, wait, wait, wait! - What? What are you doing? - The double "H" logo - stands for "Harwick Hospitality.
" - He's in there! - It's two brothers who own a ton of nightclubs in Texas.
- Cassie! I used to go to Sandy's back in Dallas.
Pretty good vibe, but drinks are super steep.
- Okay - But they loved their exits.
You would move to the back, down a hallway and out a second door.
So you would never see people leaving, - only more people coming in to party.
- Cassie, what-what is your point? Because he's gonna get away.
My point is What? - Do you trust me? - Wh what? Whoa.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Don't move! Don't move! Don't move! Caw-caw! Caw-caw! No, no.
That's not even a-a sound the hawk makes.
- And I talked to DJ on the way over here.
- Yeah? Finally got him to tell me about chem class.
- Oh shoot.
- Oh.
- I was supposed to prep you for that.
- It's okay.
I forgot.
Hey, you forgot this.
Didn't exactly have it together when I left the other night.
Um, you know, DJ floated the idea of going to the beach when he's back from Boise for the summer.
I was thinking we could all go.
Together.
How would you feel about that? Wow.
That sounds like fun.
- Fun? - Hell yes.
Of course.
I mean, obviously, depends on work, but, definitely, yeah, that-that could be a lot of fun.
If we are doing this and I am not saying that we're doing this I know, I know, I know.
I need to be more present.
Open line of, uh, communication, right? Right.
- Right.
- Right.
Listen, I-I have to run.
Um Thank you for the jacket and the coffee.
- Okay.
- Okay.
- I'll see you.
- Yeah.
You suck at girls.
How come everything's painted white? Look at this! Precious family time together.
We're looking at ranches.
- Anything promising? - Mm.
- Pickings are slim.
- Well, cost an arm and a leg to get a ranch up and running anyway.
Yeah, maybe it's time to put this cowboy out to pasture.
All right, Daddy.
Uh, Stella Blue.
Good morning to you.
Um, heard anything back from Sauber yet? Oh, that's that school from Oregon, right? That's right.
That's her first choice.
See? I-I know things.
I listen.
Um, not yet.
But last day for letters is next week, so - there's still time.
- Okay.
All right, well, I I wouldn't worry.
You got this, Blue.
Hey.
Stella, you want to go see some ranches with us? Um, I was actually thinking of hanging with Todd and his brother today, if that's okay.
Of course.
- Walker.
It is - Yeah.
- 9:47.
- Uh, yes, sir.
9:48.
Uh let's go with 9:47.
Sure.
Sorry.
I-I went to go see a a new ranch with the family.
Uh, where we at? I was catching Perez up on the, uh, perp you nabbed last night.
Wh-whoa.
Excuse me.
I nabbed.
I am the nabber.
Okay.
His name's Matthew Ryan.
He worked I.
T.
for Drexen Wealth Management.
He confessed to stealing 100 grand in cryptocurrency.
He was gonna use it to buy a million in counterfeit cash through a middleman he found on the dark web.
Did he give up the middleman? Maybe if we track him down, we can use him to get to the counterfeiter.
Yeah, about that.
Walker, there's something that you specifically should know.
The middleman is Eric Davies.
Er Eric Davies? Eric-Eric Davies? - Like like that that Eric Davies? - Eric Davies.
Okay, the loop is over there and I'm-I'm right here.
So, who is Eric Davies? I worked undercover on a on a case with a gang of bank robbers named the Rodeo Kings - and - Yes, I'm I'm aware.
- Is Eric a Rodeo King? - No.
But he was married to one.
- Uh, Twyla.
- Walker ran a sting op, put her in jail.
Few weeks later, she fed us Intel on Clint West when he escaped prison.
- Oh.
- Hold on a sec.
W we don't need to question her, Cap.
We-we can handle this and figure it out - on our own.
- Damn, Walker, you owe her money - or something? - No.
It's complicated.
Okay? I-I told her I would visit her in prison and I-I haven't really had the chance yet.
There's been a lot going on, and I'm going to.
But it-it's Well, I guess the lesson here is, don't be late.
Twyla Jean.
Should've known my little field trip this morning would end with the two of us in a room.
Duke.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
I forgot your undercover name was Duke Culpepper.
Like, what, was Archibald Fakename already taken by another Ranger? I like your new partner already.
The Rodeo Kings are all dead or in prison.
I'm not sure what else you think I know.
This isn't about the Rodeo Kings.
This is about Eric Davies.
We think Eric's involved with some counterfeiters out of Houston.
Anything you can tell us about him? Uh, Eric just up and left me one day with a mountain of debt and divorce papers.
Taste in men was never my strong suit.
Last time I helped y'all, Ranger Walker promised he'd come visit and never did.
I'm gonna need something a little more concrete this time.
Well, I see that you're up for parole next year.
Can have that pulled up.
The Rangers can vouch for you.
Works for me.
If Eric's in town, he'll be at Maple Ridge Country Club.
Okay.
Let's check the club, see if Eric's been seen there.
Send you in, set an exchange, try to land a face-to-face with the counterfeiters.
If that's a no-go, I guess we can, uh, put a tracker in the crypto drive, follow it back to the group.
Uh, I hate to break it to you, sugar, but Eric can read people.
He'll see right through Walker's charade.
Charade? My charade? Hmm.
Don't you worry.
Uh we're gonna make sure to keep Eric on his back foot.
We had this play back in Dallas called the Magician's Assistant.
You send in some eye candy as a distraction.
And between Twyla's connection to Eric and her well, everything - she could be our best shot.
- Like that episode of Hawk's Shadow with the art thieves? Oh, my God, yes.
I was totally lying about Dallas.
That's-that's what I was talking about.
Okay, Cap, Cap, are we sure about this? Uh, the last time I saw Twyla on the outside, she double-crossed me and tried to run off with 300 grand.
Well, a shot at freedom is the best motivator.
What do you say there, Twyla? You up for it? I think I can abide it, assuming Walker can let bygones be bygones.
Well, uh, if Eric can read people like you say, then I think my partner is right.
We need you.
Just, uh, don't forget, when we're together, I am going to be watching you like a ha Like-like what? Sorry, you trailed off there, Walker.
What were you saying? Like a I believe you were going to say an animal? Maybe of the avian variety? Like a ha Like a, like a ha.
- Ho! - All right, okay.
So she brings up the three of us going on vacation, and all I can think to say is, "Sounds like fun.
" Well, did you say it with that level of enthusiasm? - 'Cause that wasn't good.
- Like, I've been tripping up around her lately.
It's like I wasn't like this when we were married.
Well, till we were getting divorced.
- I probably wasn't great then.
- It's understandable.
I just, I don't know, I guess I've never had to win her back before.
- You know? - Yeah.
But you were pretty open with her when you were in the hospital, right? Yeah, of course.
But, like, over coffee I can't just talk to her about everyday little things.
It's like she means everything to me, so I feel like everything I say has to be, like - I don't know.
- So you want to talk girl problems, Uncle Larry? Look, Faye broke up with me when she thought Gramps was a murderer.
And he's innocent now, and she still won't talk to me.
I've literally tried everything.
I guess women are just unknowable.
- Unknowable.
- No, no, no, no.
Both of you need to chill out, all right? Relax.
Expressing feelings is tough for a lot of people.
Especially men.
And even more so when that person means a lot.
I mean, we tend to bottle things up.
- Whoa, you okay? - Ooh, oops.
Are you two free this afternoon? I think I might have an idea that's gonna help both of you out.
My dad's my boss, so I can pretty much leave - whenever I want.
- I got a few hours till my next thing, so I can probably squeeze it in, yeah.
I know you said you didn't want me to vent to you anymore, but I just felt like my head was gonna explode.
No, it's cool.
I was just mad about our other stuff.
I got into Sauber.
- Oh! - But out-of-state tuition is way more than my college fund.
Financial aid, it just seems like a lot on top of everything.
No, I get it.
Dad's been pushing me towards real estate, but it just seems like an absolute snooze fest.
I genuinely forgot your dad had a job.
Oh, yeah.
He's a better Realtor than rancher.
He's trying to take care of stuff by himself.
Yeah, it took him two whole days to tear down the fence between the pastures.
Hey, um, can I ask you something? Mm-hmm.
So, why are you really here? 'Cause the last time I saw you, I kind of spilled my guts to you, and you didn't seem like you totally hated it.
I didn't.
But everything just, it feels so unknown right now, you know, with my family.
But also with me.
And Todd's stable.
Wait, that's hemlock.
Okay.
Okay, so hemlock's really poisonous.
Even a little might kill a horse.
I thought horses avoid poisonous stuff.
Not the hungry ones.
Me and Gramps cut this down every spring, and we should probably rip these up before it spreads.
I think I saw all this on our side of the pasture, - and my dad just - Took down the fence.
Gotta get a move on.
You ever tried to put on a cocktail dress in the back of a van? What? - There are people - Oh, shush.
Shush? Okay, what are you, what are you doing? Let me just do this real quick.
- Um, can you hurry? - Okay Um - Okay, was the belt really necessary? - Well, now you look less like a narc.
Thank you.
Your purse, okay? All right, look.
- Burner phone with your old number.
- All right.
Microphone for audio.
- You ready? - As I'll ever be.
I know we're kind of throwing you into the deep end right now.
When I was under with y'all, I had a mantra I kind of stuck to; it helped.
Keep the circle small and the lies honest.
As per usual, Duke, the only one lying about who they are today is you.
Oh, damn, she got you.
Now, if you two are done yammering, can you please get the show on the road? - On our way.
- All right.
I am putting my belt back on.
Ooh.
- Seriously? - What? I've been eating prison food for a year.
Got a mark? In the dining room by the window.
That's him, right? Yeah.
Okay.
Yeah.
Excuse me, sir.
Sorry.
Uh, you're Eric, right? Name's Chris Walker.
I'm Matt Ryan's boss at Drexen.
You mind if we have a-a chat? Just us? I think you're barking up the wrong tree, dude.
Don't know any Matt.
- Okay.
- Hi, Eric.
Long time.
Twyla.
Bonham, what's going on? Stella called me.
You took the fences down between the pastures without walking the land for hazards? My family has kept this ranch running for over a century.
You haven't been here a month, and it's already gone to hell.
Okay, how about you get off my ranch - before I have to call the cops? - Whoa, Dad, wait.
Just Tell him, Stella.
Look, I know everything is screwed up right now, but I really didn't know who else to call.
There's hemlock all over the Davidson side of the pasture.
And Colton told me that you took down the fence, and now there's nothing keeping the horses from grazing over there.
I'm s-sorry.
I didn't even I didn't even think about that.
Just Well, I guess we found out that big "D" out front - stands for dumbass.
- Gramps, please.
There are four of us.
If we start now, we can pull it all up in a few hours.
Can we please just stop the family stuff until then, for the horses? Twyla Jean.
Wow, what's it been, like, three, four years? Five, actually.
Well, hmm John Boy said you got arrested for some bank thing.
Mm.
Couldn't get the charges to stick.
Got a job working for Mr.
Walker.
I was surprised when he brought up your name.
Yeah, so Twyla here, she handles my, uh my discreet accounts.
Well, it's been so long, I hope we can leave our mess in the past.
You sure look like you're doing fine now.
She was right.
Massive douche.
- Bygones.
- Okay, you know what, Eric? I'm gonna shoot you straight.
Uh, so, uh, caught Matt skimming crypto off of some of our clients, and he let me know about your counterfeit deal, and, uh, I want in.
- Hmm.
- Heard the group you work with is top-notch.
See for yourself.
Watermarks, security ribbons.
You name it, they do it.
Talented guys.
Okay, how about this.
I can get you 200 grand in crypto for two million in fake cash.
There's a catch.
It'd be my honor to give my compliments to the chef face-to-face.
I wouldn't be much of a middleman if I did that, but I'll see what the boys say.
Okay.
What coin we talking? What coin? - You tell me.
- So, he means cryptocurrency.
- So, Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tether, whatever he wants.
- The Bitcoin? Ethereum? Tether? Whatever you want.
Uh, you know, after my legal troubles, no one would hire me.
Walker, he took me in, gave me a job.
He's good people.
Hmm.
Oh, so you two are a thing, huh? What? No.
No.
No.
Never.
No He's-he's my boss.
I-I wouldn't.
- I wouldn't.
Yeah.
- She works for me.
- She she works for me.
- Yeah.
Well, if you can't be honest with yourselves, you sure as hell ain't gonna be honest with me.
Good to see you, Twyla.
What's the play, Walker? We gotta take him down.
- Blow our cover.
- No, we'll lose the counterfeiters.
I know Eric.
He won't talk.
Whoa, Twyla, what are you doing? You brought me here to do a job.
Let me do it.
I am not I'm not hearing anything.
I'm-I'm hearing, I'm hearing What-what am I hearing? I'm hearing I'm hearing me.
Damn it, Twyla.
She left the mic.
I'll see if I can get eyes on them.
Okay, they're talking pretty close.
Send.
You get it? Yeah.
This is it.
This is it.
This is the double cross.
They could've planned it while she was in prison.
Easy with the conspiracy theories.
Who are you, me? - We don't know anything yet.
- See you soon.
Wait, here she comes.
Uh Hey, Twyla, how'd it go? - He's in.
- Oh He'll text me details of the meet later.
All right.
Now, rage rooms are fairly new, but doctors have been studying physical release pretty much since the dawn of therapy.
- Oh, my God.
- Yeah.
This is gonna help you unlock those deeper emotions that you've been bottling up on a regular basis.
Coach Trey, say less.
Okay.
Okay.
Hey, hey, hey, do you even know what that is? Yeah, it's an answering machine.
His generation.
Hey, whoa, whoa.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
- Wait, wait, wait.
- What? Cap, try something for me.
While you're swinging, just yell about your day.
I'm not much of a yeller, bro.
Yell - Yell what about my day? - Just trust me, all right? Anything that comes to mind.
I mean, the tiniest detail.
- What'd you have for breakfast? - Yogurt.
- Yell! - I had yogurt for breakfast! What kind of yogurt?! I had strawberry yogurt for breakfast at the office! - Smash! - I had strawberry yogurt for breakfast! - And then what? - Then I checked my emails.
And then Cassie came in.
I briefed her about a case.
And then Walker came in.
He was late! Questioning decisions I was making.
- Yeah, how'd that make you feel? - It was annoying.
It was very, very annoying.
Sometimes I feel like our time as partners 'cause we were partners, he doesn't respect me as a boss.
- He doesn't see me - Okay, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Hey.
Whoa.
- Okay, you see? - Okay.
You see, that's what I'm talking about.
I mean, it took a little extra testosterone - to grease the wheels, but - Yeah.
Sharing those tiny details leads to the deeper stuff that you're looking for.
Kelly wants to hear all of that from you.
- All right? - Okay.
Augie, I'm sorry about all the "your dad is annoying" stuff.
No, no, it's fine.
I'm the captain of that ship.
All right, my turn.
Probably blow the rest of the family's minds to see us out here working together.
Yeah, I'm just here for the horses.
Well, I'm sorry about taking down that fence.
I was just trying to impress Denise.
Look, uh, Colt mentioned, uh, uh I hope you don't mind me asking, but how-how are your treatments going? I'm not sure I need to get into all that with you.
Yeah, that's fair.
Uh Both my folks fought cancer.
Uh, my mom made it through, but it-it did take my dad before we had a chance to work out our differences, so I'm glad to hear that yours sounds like the former.
It's never easy to lose a parent.
Especially to something as wicked as that.
So that's all of it.
Next time, start culling in March.
- It really slows the spread.
- Right.
Oh.
Thank you.
Uh look, I'm clearly in over my head.
And you know this land more than anyone, so maybe You want me to help work my family's ranch for you? A Davidson? - Not in a million freaking years.
- I'm sorry.
I-I didn't mean any offense by that.
I'm sorry.
Well, since you are an idiot, I probably should come back out this week and spray the fields, and I noticed there are a few fence posts that need to be fixed, and Chopper needs to be reshoed, so I can call the farrier.
All right.
Sounds like a plan.
Do you really expect us to believe he just changed his mind? What did you say to him? I said we should catch up after the exchange.
- Maybe get reacquainted.
- Ah.
Look, I-I forgot my purse, but I did what you asked.
Did he say when he might reach out? No, all he said was he'd talk to his crew - and get back to me.
- Come on, Twyla.
You told him something.
I know you did.
You probably outed us as Rangers, because - Walker! - What? Hallway.
Now.
- Go.
- Why? - What? - Walk.
- What? - Get in there.
Get What? Why? What-what are you doing? Cass, what? - Rule 33 43.
Whatever.
- Okay, she's hiding something.
You don't know her the same way I do.
She's flipped on me before.
Okay, are you sure that this isn't just entirely about Geri? Ger What does Geri have to do with any of this? Look, last night, you told me you felt betrayed by Geri.
And now you're saying pretty much the exact same thing about a woman who, may I remind you, - is doing this to earn a shot at her own freedom.
- Okay, okay, wait.
I get it, but - she is not Geri.
- No.
I'm not saying you don't have a right to be cautious here, but your feelings are clouding your judgement.
What is that? It's Twyla's burner phone.
"5:00 p.
m.
, dock at Shay Cove.
And one more thing, counterfeiters don't want crypto.
They want cash.
300,000 real for three million fake.
" So a last-minute change after a mystery meeting with a known backstabber.
That-that's not fishy at all.
Look, do you trust me or not? And I mean that for real this time, not in a showboaty way.
Do you trust me? Of course.
Whoo! Man - Hey.
- Oh, watch out there.
You know, if Faye broke up with me over something I had no control over, maybe she just didn't like me for me in the first place.
That's crazy.
I gotta pee.
Good luck.
- Oh! - Hey, thanks for that, man.
That was that was much needed.
Oh, no, man, you don't need to thank me.
I mean, dropping knowledge is my thing.
- Apparently.
- Yeah.
Plus it's a good excuse to kick it.
- Yeah, man.
- Yeah.
Hey, look, I know you got the Sacred Heart thing going.
I think there are some Rangers that could really use your magic therapy sauce.
Are you serious? Would you consider helping out? Totally around your schedule.
You know, you can kind of feel it out.
Of course! Yeah! Yeah, man, I'd love to.
All right.
Well, hold on, would I would I get the hat? No.
This face in a Stetson? Come on.
Hey, Cap? You hearing us out there? - Yeah.
Loud and clear.
- Great.
Cass, uh, double-check the tracker in the bag, please.
Good to go.
Signal's strong.
So, uh, 300 grand.
Same amount as the Rodeo Kings job.
Interesting.
What, exactly, is the problem? You've been riding me all day, and it's really starting - to lose its charm.
- Okay, well, help me understand.
Eric's out, and then you go talk to him in private, and all of a sudden, he's back in.
Except he wants to change the terms of the agreement to 300 grand, last minute.
You know, you double-crossed me before, Twyla.
Why wouldn't you do it again? Why do you always think the worst of me? I don't.
Then how come you didn't visit me in prison like you said you would? I was going to.
I wanted to.
This last year has been difficult on me, on my family.
I needed to be there with them.
And frankly, seeing you in there the first time was hard enough, knowing that I put you there.
Do you ever wonder what it could've been like if we met under different circumstances? Walker, they're here.
Oh.
Howdy, y'all.
Howdy.
Who's the new girl? She is my money manager.
Not really easy to, uh, come up with an extra hundred K on short notice, but this one here is the best.
Name's Archibald.
- Did you bring the money? - Sure did.
Not you.
Twyla.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Walker, what's going on? Everybody calm down, all right? Eric, what is this? Do I need to explain what bending you over a barrel looks like? Guns, please.
Yep, yep.
Okay.
Let's all just Let's all take a breath here.
Keep the money.
Keep the money.
No harm, no foul.
Just let Twyla go.
Twyla? - Yeah.
- She can speak for herself.
Told you he'd fall for it.
Aw, come on.
I couldn't pass up the opportunity to steal 300 grand from you, Walker.
Me and Eric are gonna stop by his counterfeiting buddies, pick up some more cash and ride off into the sunset.
Oh, honey, I don't have any buddies.
I'm the counterfeiter.
Hey, Eric, check this out.
Ooh, boy.
I might have underestimated you a bit, Mr.
Walker.
We're heading in, 90 seconds out.
Uh, so you found, uh, the tracking device.
Just a a little insurance policy, that's all.
- I think we're done here.
- Okay.
Pleasure doing business.
Now, if you just hit the deck and count to 50 50.
Uh That sounds familiar.
You got it.
No, wait.
Give me the gun.
Twyla.
Twyla.
60 seconds.
Put the gun down.
Twyla, don't do this.
You should've visited me in prison.
And you shouldn't have left me in debt five years ago! Eric, drop the gun.
Texas Rangers.
You, don't move.
You good? Yeah.
I was wrong about the belt.
I was I was wrong, too.
Shall we? Sh What? No, don't, don't - Ca-caw! - No, no, no, no, no.
- I I'm not doing that.
- Walker, come on.
Do it just once.
- Hey.
- Hey.
Is everything all right? Your text sounded urgent.
Oh, oh, uh It is, and it isn't.
It's just Bear with me here.
Have a seat.
- I'm trying to be a gentleman.
- Okay.
- Hi.
- Hi.
I was at the grocery store this morning.
Okay.
I was walking down the cereal aisle, and there was a tub of sour cream, just sitting there, right? Like somebody had called an audible.
- Mm-hmm.
- Instead of taking it back to the dairy section, where it belonged, they just left it there.
To most people, this would not be a big deal.
I was enraged.
This is why I never sent you to the grocery store.
You joke, but This is what I'm trying to say.
Law enforcement isn't just a job for me.
- It's who I am, Kelly.
- Larry, I know you know you know I know this.
It is part It's part of the problem.
I know.
Just hear me out.
Hear me out, okay? Before we split up, I was trying to keep work separate from home.
Right? But by doing that, I was keeping me separate from you.
And like you said, I don't want to repeat mistakes.
I don't.
So yesterday, when you brought up vacation, I shouldn't have said, "Sounds like fun.
" I mean, you, me, DJ on a beach, that's like What I should have told you is that just the thought of that made me feel whole again.
You know? So what do you say? You still in? Sounds like fun.
Yes.
Mawline says lunch is ready.
Okay.
Looks like you got an email from Sauber.
Oh, it's probably just spam or something.
You got in, didn't you? Yeah.
But I haven't told anyone 'cause I don't even know if I want to go yet.
And there's so much stuff going on, - it doesn't seem like great timing.
- Hey.
You don't need to hide your wins.
Your daddy would want to know regardless of what you decide to do.
You know, I've felt a little adrift recently, but sometimes you gotta just latch onto something and get excited about it.
Like working the ranch again.
Well, that situation has been a little hard to swallow, but the truth is, out there working my family's land just might be the best way to to honor their legacy, whether we live there or not.
So you tell your daddy.
Okay? You spread the joy and whatnot.
We need a little bit right now.
- Okay.
- Okay.
Hey, by the way, how'd you end up out at the ranch yesterday? I thought you were gonna go hang out with Todd.
I don't know, just changed my mind, I guess.
Well, you might want to be careful of that one.
Thank you for speaking for me in there.
Felt good to have someone in my corner.
I meant every word.
You earned your parole.
I'm just glad I could be a part of it.
Oh.
I brought you these.
Some ├ęclairs from the club.
Look, I don't mean to sound ungrateful, but why are you being so sweet to me? When I came to Austin, I had been out of the Ranger game for a minute.
Walker gave me a shot at a fresh start.
Felt like you deserved one, too.
You know, he can be a big old dummy sometimes but he means well.
Thank you.
Well, well, well.
If it isn't, uh, liar liar pants on fire.
You know you're the reason I had to lie, right? When Eric made his play, I knew the only way to catch the counterfeiters was to go with him.
Have you follow us back to their shop.
But if I tell you that, you bench me, thinking I'm gonna run off for real.
And if he doesn't see me on that dock, he just drives right on by.
No counterfeiters, no parole.
No parole.
What I didn't realize was Was that Eric was the counterfeiter.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
When they found the tracker, I knew I had to do something.
I can't tell you how good it felt smashing him in the face.
Twyla, I'm sorry.
I should have trusted you more.
I've been going through something that's left me a little raw, and insecurities got the best of me, and, uh, I'm-I'm sorry.
It really feels like I've been saying "bygones" an awful lot, so I'm just gonna say I forgive you.
I never answered your question on the dock, when you asked what I thought it might be like if we had met under different circumstances.
And it got me thinking I guess I finally realized that ever since the day we met, there's been either lies or a badge between us.
And I'm not trying to say that it should have been diff - I'm not gonna tell you that it's like - Relax, sugar.
You've got "hot mess" written all over you.
Okay.
Okay.
My point is, um Come here.
Hi.
Cordell.
Twyla.
Twyla Jean.
