1 Oh.
- Hi.
- Hey.
You, uh, breaking and entering? Hey, have you seen Dad's old picnic basket? - I've got this date tonight.
- His what? Are you going to court today? - No.
- What's with all the starch? Uh Are you wearing aftershave? Look, okay.
- Ugh.
- If you must know, I'm, uh, taking Twyla around today.
Gonna go help her find a new apartment.
It's not a big deal.
- Twyla? - Yeah.
- You sure that's smart? - Easy.
We're just running errands.
Does Geri know? Look, I know it's a rebound, but Okay, Geri made it clear she's not interested in us.
And-and Twyla Twyla's not a rebound.
She's a friend.
You know, it-it's-it's casual.
Uh Cordi, you don't do casual.
Okay? - You're a serial monogamist.
- Okay, so, wait, are there rules? - Mm.
- What? Was was I supposed to go straight from widower to player? Also, you have coffee with a guy and get engaged, so Uh, no.
Bret and I got engaged after six months of dating, okay? So And it wasn't coffee.
Okay, okay, okay.
I just Look, there's something simple about it, w-with Twyla.
I don't have to think about me losing the ranch, or me and Geri, or-or us all fighting with the Davidsons, any of it.
All I can say is that when I'm with her, I-I feel like I can take a breath.
Cordi, if you need to talk to me, - you know that I'm always here, right? - I do know that.
I do.
Uh Thank you.
Meanwhile, big brother to the rescue.
Daddy's picnic basket.
Have fun.
Wearing Mom's necklace again? Yeah, um Colton found it.
You got to tell Todd.
What? Come on, you said Colton's name, and you did that thing you do with your-your face, your cheeks or whatever.
- Smile? - You don't smile like that at Todd.
I smile how I smile.
This is just the way my face moves.
It's not fair, to either of you.
I know.
It's just it's not that easy.
Just rip it off, like a Band-Aid.
Good luck.
Hey, um, can we talk at lunch? Sure.
Great news.
- I got in.
- Oh, okay.
- Oh, wow.
- All the cram sessions, late nights, it all paid off.
Thanks to you.
I was getting worried about the whole long-distance thing, but now we're all good.
Sorry, I-I interrupted you.
What'd you want to say? Um Don't worry about it.
Let's celebrate.
- Come on.
- Okay.
Real nice.
So, it sounds like things are going well with you and your brother.
Yeah, well, we're getting there.
- Yeah? - We, uh, we visited Lucas's grave last week.
It was healing.
That's that's great.
That's great, but I I hope you guys are doing some - lighter things together, too.
- Yeah.
Yeah, of course.
I mean, we're actually going to a Neville Meriwether book signing next week.
Who's that? Seriously? He's a British Academy actor who portrays the fearless fowl himself, Hawk Shadow.
- What? - I Caw.
Caw? What? Okay, well, other than this deeply - disappointing finish - Whoo.
this was a good session.
Yeah, that was, that was good.
Ah, Cap.
- Hey.
- How's it going, man? Uh, it's it's good.
We're making some progress.
But I got to tell you, you Rangers are not a talkative bunch.
- Oh, you doing the not talking thing.
- Yeah.
I was doing the thing, yeah.
Yeah, you got a second? - Yeah.
- Got some news for you.
DPS commission approved you for the in-house therapist position.
- That's great.
- Yeah, well, it is, but there's a catch.
They're insisting that the job be full-time.
I pushed back.
I told them you're trying to make this work with Sacred Heart.
You've already had breakthroughs over here, all that.
They were not swayed.
You know the kids need me.
High school's only gotten a lot tougher with all this Insta-crap.
I get it.
I know what those kids mean to you, but DPS does have a point about consistency.
The deeper you get with these Rangers, harder it's gonna be to keep it a part-time thing.
All right, look, I'm gonna have to think about it.
Whatever you decide, we're cool.
- All right? - All right.
- Appreciate it, Cap.
- Yeah, man.
Let's see, first on the list is The Balboa.
The Balboa? Sounds like a casino.
It's an apartment, I swear.
Okay, okay.
Thank you for doing this.
Pleasure's mine, Twyla Jean.
Uh - Go for Walker.
- Walker, I need you over at HQ.
Denise, I requested the morning off.
James is aware.
I is this important? I sense a wrench in our plans.
- Is that Twyla? - Yes, it is.
Bring her, too.
I need you both.
Copy that.
- All right, we're all set.
The op is a go.
- Great.
Um Excuse me.
One sec.
- Hello? - Denise, hey.
You know what, I'm, um, I'm a little tied up right now.
What can I do for you? Oh, um Well, I was, uh, I was just wondering, you know, we-we talked about having dinner a while back, and we made reservations at Revolori's tonight, and I just wanted to make sure we were still on.
You know what, I'm so sorry, Ger.
- Can we just, um - Here's the truth.
I don't really know how to do this.
And I'm guessing you probably don't either.
So, family road trips when you just find out you're family probably aren't the greatest.
So, I think we should do something else, maybe over pasta? You know what, um, - I'm gonna have to call you back.
- Yeah, okay, um, I-I hope you do.
How convenient y'all were together.
Yeah, Denise, um just helping her look for a new place.
That's more a job for her parole officer than a Ranger.
She has skills that we need for this assignment.
- That why you want her as your new CI? - Her expertise, both in banking and in the rodeo, make her vital to this particular case.
That it? Or is this maybe just another way to take a run at me? What are you talking about? You went after my father, and you were wrong.
Can we focus, please? Yes, sir, Cap.
As a condition of your release, you are required to help the DA's office with any investigational needs.
Fully aware, ma'am.
So, what bank teller's skimming off the top? It's not a bank.
It's an auction.
Travis County Horse Auction.
A regional investigation discovered that someone's using the auction to launder money for the Becerra Cartel.
Becerra's the new guy in town.
He's trying to take over Serano's old territory.
This horse auction seems to be his money laundering hub.
So, if we can pinpoint who's facilitating the washing and stop them, Hydra won't grow a new head.
That's where you come in.
You want me to follow the money? - Find the inside man? - Exactly, but we don't know who on the inside's cleaning the cash.
We go in blazing, they'll scatter like leaves, so it's gonna be a three-person team.
You, Cassie, and Twyla, all right? - Do you want to do this? - Excuse me? Walker? It's okay.
Okay, yeah, great.
Let's do it, but if there's even a whisper of danger, I'm gonna call it, and we send in a tact team.
You'll need these to access the front office.
Now, we've already cleared the auction manager.
He's clean, and he'll help you gain access.
five and a half.
Five hundred thousand dollars and 25, could be 25, anyone else? Sold! $500,000.
Thank you.
Walker's gonna cover you from the stands.
- Cassie will surveil the high-end bidders.
- Hey! Right.
So, once you gain access to the registry, just look for any discrepancies.
Any new buyers, fuzzy math, - anything out of the ordinary.
- Okay.
Anything unusual? Not yet, just the usual suspects.
Oh, Cassie, watch out for Bob Brimley.
What's he look like? Big fella, older than dirt, wears one pair of overalls.
Careful, he's handsy.
All right, these are some of the best horses in the country.
But be careful, they're a little spirited.
Whoa! And there you go.
- Cordi, did you hear me? - Sorry, um Didn't catch that.
Jim Norwood.
Never heard his name at any rodeo circuits.
Let's see.
He buys horses in volume, but never enters any contests.
Uh, what do you mean? I mean, he buys horses and sells them, and he keeps within the margins as not to arouse any lookie-loos.
- Well, that's not at all sus.
- Huh.
Every sale and purchase Norwood has ever made has been executed by the same auction clerk, a Miss Norma Ships.
Hang on, folks.
Someone else is accessing the log.
Wait, something's up.
Guys, I think we have movement.
I'm calling it, everyone clear out.
Haven't seen you around here before, ma'am.
Uh New hire, sir, and on the clock, so if you don't mind, I'm just gonna Think we ought to have a quick talk.
Get you oriented.
Uh, excuse me.
Hold on.
Cordell Walker, Texas Ranger.
Gentlemen, I'm gonna have to ask you to put your weapons on the ground.
Great, great.
All right.
Hey, we're just taking care of some auction business.
Then, uh, no harm, no foul.
I need you to take a step back.
Thank you, sir.
And why don't we, uh Why don't we talk some auction business? - Hold 'em! - I got them! No! Wait, wait.
No, no! Whoa, whoa, whoa! Hold it! Stop.
Hold it right there.
Don't-don't - I didn't do anything.
- Okay.
I'm listening to you.
- What do you care? They're just horses.
- All right.
I'm gonna need you to put the gun down.
You're surrounded.
- Ooh, Stel, we're gonna be late.
- Were you for real? Yeah, we're gonna be late, and Mr.
Dunlap's probably gonna freak.
No, I mean about how you feel about me.
Yeah, that's how I feel.
I mean, since day one in the parking lot, it's been you.
I mean, I-I should've just told you that instead of being mean to the girl I like, and Yeah, that probably would've been a better option.
If this is gonna work, we really need to be honest wth everybody.
Okay, yeah, cool.
That was crazy.
- Duke and Twyla together again.
- Okay, uh, Cordell and Twyla.
Well, still, it's got me feeling all nostalgic.
I got to ask, did you ever even think about taking me and that 300k to Sayulita? No expectations, just go? - Is that a yes? - That that's a A a fantasy.
Yours or mine? There's still time, you know.
Well, minus the money.
You kind of messed that up.
I messed it up.
But the other part This feels familiar.
I should probably get this real fast.
Welcome to senior week.
We've got cornhole, basketball, a photo booth, and don't forget to get your yearbook signed.
This week is all about you, so have fun.
Sorry, bro, bad shot.
Just watch it, man.
Hey! Stop it! Get get off of me! Ooh! - Coach, I'm sorry.
I didn't, I didn't - Both of you, outside, now.
The rest of you, go back to whatever it is you were doing.
- Go.
- All right, Coach.
So, let me get this straight You race this Dan Davidson Um, Miller.
for your family ranch, and due to some technicality, you lose to - Dan.
- Miller.
- Yeah.
- Because your saddle breaks.
I know, I know, I know, it sounds absurd.
No, it is absurd.
100% absurd.
He's not beating you in race, not square, anyhow.
I try not to think about it.
What do you think about, then? I think about, um days like this, you, us.
I think about us, too.
Here, now, the moment.
Is that good enough for you? More than good.
- Yeah? - Yeah.
- Yeah? - Yeah.
Why the hell were you fighting? I could hear your side of it, or the principal can give you the standard suspension.
It's your choice.
- All right.
- Wait, Coach.
It was my fault.
I started it.
Okay, I get it.
Stella Walker.
Guys, I need you to shake hands and squash this.
Right now.
Let's go.
I'm sorry, bro.
I was out of line.
No, it's cool, man.
Colton, you can go.
Todd, you stay.
Come on, man.
If you hit any other teacher, do you know how much trouble - you'd be in right now? - I know, Coach, and I'm I'm sorry.
I I can take a punch, and I'd definitely choose a sore jaw over a broken heart - any day of the week.
- Coach I think I think she likes Colton.
You do know it's her choice, right? Yeah, but shouldn't I try or whatever? W Listen, I recently went through a breakup, one that I didn't see coming.
Both people have to want a relationship.
And the one who wants it the least, well, they're the ones who have the power.
It does get easier after high school.
- Seriously? - Nah, not at all.
But you do get a better understanding of things.
Thanks, Mr.
Barnett, for everything.
Of course.
- Hey.
- Hi.
You're back.
With flowers.
Well What's the occasion? Happy Day Zero.
I'm sorry, day zero? Yeah, because I hope that tomorrow can be Day One of us.
- Cordi, I don't know.
- No, I-I don't know either, but if I'm being honest, I want to know what being together actually feels like, i if if if you do.
To Day Zero, then.
To Day Zero.
Geri, hey.
Uh, have you seen Augie around? He he said he was coming here after school.
Yeah, he's in the back washing dishes.
- All right.
- Hey.
- Um - Yeah? I saw you here the other night with Twyla.
- Ger - No, Cordi, I'm not jealous.
But why would you go back to that? It was such a dark time in your life, Cordi.
Everything that she represents, to you and yeah, to me, too, okay? Geri, I hear you, but it's not like that, okay? A and she's she's not like that.
Does your family know? Right.
Do your kids a favor, don't let them get caught off guard by seeing you two together.
All your history undercover You know? Okay? I mean, you owe them that much.
I don't know.
That's a real nice ski mask.
Oh, my gosh.
That's funny.
Mm, mm.
All right, Augie, uh, she-she's here.
- Hey.
- Hi.
- I'm Twyla.
- I know who you are.
- Please.
- Okay.
What you don't know, is how sorry I am.
I feel awful for all the hurt I've caused you and your family.
Look, I wish I could undo it all, and I know that I can't, but I can do everything possible from here on out to make amends.
Look, you, um you told my dad where Clint West was, and that saved my sister, so thanks.
It was nothing.
Uh, so your dad told you we've been working together over the last week or so? - Yeah.
- Yeah, yeah, a-a-and now that the case is over, Twyla is thinking about sticking around for a while.
Uh That's it? I'm sorry, I thought you guys were gonna say something completely different.
Like you were dating.
And, Twyla, I really like how you're turning your life around, but our family is-is kind of - okay at the moment, you know? - Yeah.
Uh, w-well, actually, Augie, I'm gonna tell you that Twyla and I, we, um we-we talked about, you know, dating, and and and we, uh, we decided Uh, we ultimately decided against it.
Yeah, um You know, I like your dad a lot.
But I think we can all agree that there's just too much history.
Okay, great.
I'll be in the car.
Yeah, yeah, of course, bud.
Twyla - If this is too soon - I know, it's it's fine.
Okay? Um I guess we can call it a failure to launch.
Um If this is a bad time, I can Uh, no, no, please.
Come on in.
- Sorry, I should've called you back earlier.
- No.
I kind of ambushed you.
Well, we're family now, - so I guess that's part of the territory.
- Yeah.
- Um - You know, one of the most tragic things about this whole thing is that we were both robbed of a sister.
But I think we could still change that.
Um um, Geri I would like that.
I I really would.
But if I am completely honest with you when I look at you, all I see is the daughter of Frank Broussard, the man responsible for my father's death.
I know that's not on you No, that's not on me.
Nor is the fact that Marv Davidson gave me away on you.
We were both victimized by these men, our dads.
And now that we know the truth, don't you think that that we both owe it to each other to make some kind of peace? How about we get a drink? I happen to know a place.
Would you please take your seats, seniors? The slideshow is about to begin.
Hey, you didn't text me back last night.

Uh, do you happen to have your keys on you? Sure.
- Do you know where she is? - I have no idea.
This is Walker.
Um I think we have a fugitive.
Twyla Jean.
What's going on, Stel? Remember when I said we needed to talk? Yeah.
I think I know what about, too.
Um, I don't think we can be together anymore.
You're a really great guy, Todd, - and I really like you, but - You don't have to say all that stuff.
Please don't, actually.
This is about Colton, right? I'd be lying if I said he has nothing to do with it.
- But with or without Colton - You don't want me.
I just want you to be happy, Stel.
I hope you find what you're looking for.
Thank you for saying that.
I'm not saying let's be friends right away or anything, but Sauber starts in the fall.
See you on campus? Okay.
Come here.
- Hey.
- Hey.
What's going on? Dispatch said - you were driving her to the county line.
- Yeah.
As per the DA's office.
- DA's office? - Yeah.
Hays County is here to pick her up.
- Thought you knew.
- I guess I didn't get the message.
Uh, Cass, can you give us a minute? Yeah.
Yeah, yeah.
I can't believe Denise transferred you.
- I'm gonna call her right now and fix this.
- Uh I asked to be transferred, and the DA kindly obliged.
Y You asked Twyla, if this is about what August said The kid spoke his mind.
But the truth is, us being together it isn't really in the cards, is it? My brother was right.
He, uh He said I don't know how to do casual.
- That seems like a fair assessment.
- Yeah.
Twyla, you've changed.
You really have, for the better.
And that's so great.
But I guess I haven't.
I just lost sight of who I really was for a bit.
Duke was your person.
Cordell he's someone else's.
Well, we sure do know how to have a damn good time, though.
Yeah, we do.
Um Were you really gonna gonna leave without saying goodbye? Ugh.
You know me.
I I didn't want to make a big to-do.
- Twyla.
- Yeah.
They're waiting on me.
- Of course.
- I gotta go.
Yeah, uh You take care of yourself, Twyla Jean.
I'll see you around, Cordell.
These two legends were so loud that Dan changed the name of our Wi-Fi to "We Can Hear You.
" And the old lady Agnes changes hers that night to "Yeah? What's Your Point?" No! Oh, my gosh.
- They're at least 80 years old.
- Wow.
- Well, I will drink to that.
- Yeah.
Amen, sister.
- That was, you know - No, no.
It's it's actually very nice to hear.
I do have to say there have been a lot of times in my life that I would have loved a shoulder to cry on.
Wait, don't get me wrong.
- Mom has her good qualities.
- Mm.
But something tells me that - you're probably a better listener.
- Well, thank you.
And I want you to remember that now you do have a shoulder.
I mean a third.
Oh, hell, that came out wrong.
It's nice to hear.
I'm gonna do it.
It's gonna happen.
It's time.
It's time! What are you doing? Today's the day that good ol' Denise the Deer comes down.
Okay, well, first of all, that's a boar, not a deer; I'm not that drunk.
Well, whatever it is, it's coming down.
What Wait, wait.
Wasn't that a present from Emily Walker? Yes, it was.
And she would want you to feel welcome.
So do I.
Thank you.
- Hey, Louis? - Mm-hmm? Can you put this in storage for me? - Thank you.
- Got it, Geri.
Last call? Um Oop! To family.
To blood.
- Hey, hey, hey.
- Hey.
Come on in.
What's up? I just wanted to come let you know that I I've come to a decision.
And? I still got work to do at the school.
I see.
But I have a proposition for you.
All right.
I'm all ears.
I owe it to these seniors to see them through to the end of the school year.
They've worked hard, and I want to see them get their diplomas.
But after that, when the summer hits, I'll join up here.
Really? I'll talk to the DPS commission.
- Yeah? - School's almost out.
Seems reasonable to me, right? Yeah.
Thank you, Cap.
I appreciate it.
- I'll see you tomorrow.
- Wouldn't have it any other way.
My man.
Hey, Bill, it's Captain James.
Listen, we're probably gonna have to pull some strings, but I just found the perfect candidate for the open Ranger position that we need to fill.
All right, we'll talk.
Hey, that's my parking spot.
What, this a reenactment of when we first met? Oh, do you Do you not want August to sucker punch you? No, I definitely don't need that.
So, um, what's up? It's over between me and Todd.
Are you okay? Yeah.
Yeah? Yeah.
- Okay.
- So it seems like our families have stopped fighting.
My gramps is working with your dad.
Our grandmas aren't throwing chili at each other.
And we can both sort of call Geri our aunt now.
- That's weird.
- Mm-hmm.
So, um, how long do you think this peace is going to last? Probably not forever, sadly.
But that doesn't really matter to us.
Right? Uh, I really like you, Stella.
I really like you, too.
- Hey.
- Hey.
Look at you, breaking and entering again.
Hey, how did, uh how did yesterday go? - It was great, actually.
- Good.
Ben thinks picnics should stay in the 1950s - Oh - but we stayed in, ordered ramen.
Well, you you love ramen.
Lucky you.
- I love ramen.
- You love ramen.
So how'd it go with Twyla? Uh, she asked to be transferred to the next county over.
Oh, man, I'm-I'm sorry.
No, don't be.
You were right about me.
About who I am.
When I was with Twyla, I was able to forget about everything because I was literally pretending to be someone else.
But that's another life.
You know, one without responsibilities, uh, or attachments.
Definitely not mine.
Someone would have to pry this family away from me for me to ever walk away from it again.
And, uh, if or when the feeling does come up where you need to follow your heart, I volunteer to take you to the airport.
To make sure that you board that plane.
- Okay.
- I will buy you that ticket.
- Yeah, fair enough.
I know you will.
- Okay? I know you will.
Twyla said something else.
She mentioned something, and it I can't stop thinking about it.
What? What'd she say? She asked about the-the race.
The race for the ranch.
She couldn't believe I lost.
And the truth is, I can't believe I lost, either.
I mean, Dan's a good a good rider, he is.
But something happened at this horse auction I had to go to for work.
I-I watched a rider take a tumble because his saddle wasn't secured properly.
Let me ask you this.
So-so Daddy's been working with leather - basically his whole life, right? - Right.
How many of his straps have snapped? - None.
- Exactly.
So what are the odds that, on the day I'm supposed to race for our family's legacy, the leather gives out? Cordell, what are you saying? I'm saying, the Davidsons what if they cheated?
