Walker – See You Someday (Sequence Finale) – Evaluate: The Last Curtain!

Date:

Right here we’re people! For higher or worse, (and a little bit late in posting this since I am down with a chilly, apologies!) we made it to the top of CW’s “Walker” which ran for 4 seasons and 69 episodes; with its highs and lows, its justifiable share of visitor star’s galore, character arrivals and character goodbyes, a by-product which deserved extra love and extra seasons too, there was nonetheless a particular love for the present and nonetheless we really feel about it, I believe it is secure to say that as a collection finale, this episode did good. I for one am glad that they did not go all out with a loopy cliffhanger or go away issues horribly unresolved or not tie up all of the unfastened ends – we did have one very attention-grabbing facet which I’ll get to… however it’s a reduction to have had the prolonged finale with no alternate ending reshot? At the least for me, I might say that regardless of all the potentialities and unanswered questions concerning the “what next” if there was a season 5, there’s nonetheless a way of closure for the characters and that is sufficient too.

And on a fast private observe, it has been an incredible expertise to get the possibility to evaluate a present that is been a favourite of mine for the reason that very starting and though I got here in on the finish, I could not have requested for something higher to maintain writing about week after week – for 13 episodes straight! Alright, alright, now onto the finale earlier than I get all weepy and sappy; I already did that final week did not I?

The episode was principally a two-pronged storyline at the beginning of it, with Walker making the rounds to apologize to his close to and pricey ones – his youngsters and Geri, who have been the closest folks affected by the aftermath of his kidnapping and former obsession-turned-addiction with the Jackal case. They made it some extent to concentrate on the one-on-one scenes that he had, first with Augie on the very starting whereas they’re preparing for Augie’s commencement and it was attention-grabbing to see the distinction in that scene and the one with Stella afterward when Walker goes to satisfy her at her dorm. The entire season has gone to nice lengths to not solely present simply how comparable this father-daughter duo are, however in addition they remember to maintain telling us about it as properly and on the finish of the day, each Stella and August simply need their dad to be the form of one that exhibits as much as the place he stated he’d be, maintain the guarantees that may be saved; a stability between work life and private life is one thing all of us have seen Cordell struggling to take care of time and time once more, however it appears as if issues have been going to be modified after all the pieces was stated and accomplished.

We get to see Cordell making his speech at Augie’s commencement about how he wanted to learn to let go of his son, who has grown up into a person and is able to making his personal selections and can transfer on into the “real world” now, however maybe we will additionally try to see it in a approach that Cordell was speaking about himself too? Making an attempt to maneuver on from all the pieces that occurred and reside his life together with his household, separating the work facet of issues, even when it was solely short-term for the summer season. (Or wouldn’t it have been a little bit longer than that per Anna Fricke’s post-finale interview?) and though it was only a small scene in the direction of the top of the episode, we did get to see him going to speak to Cassie, which I believe went about in addition to it might have gone – the time aside would undoubtedly be one thing they wanted for one another and one may be hopeful to think about that ultimately they’d have discovered some widespread floor to be associates once more?

On the flip aspect after all was the ultimate spherical of interviews between Cassie and Trey to see which one in every of them would get the Lieutenant promotion, however first I undoubtedly wish to spotlight the scene with Cassie and Kelly! It has been heartwarming to see that within the face of such a horrible and heartbreaking loss, they did not simply inform us that Cassie had folks in her nook; to take the time to point out Geri being with Cassie at residence as she went by means of all the feelings over shedding Luna, adopted by Kelly displaying as much as simply provide hugs and being by her aspect to look at Fits (Pearson Specter title drop!) and even Ben, who has dealt together with his personal share of loss… I believe it helped us viewers members a little bit bit, to witness the sluggish however gradual therapeutic course of that she’s going by means of. And I do not know if it turns into a double-edged sword form of a factor, as a result of far be it for me to try to say that her getting the promotion and the brand new job was something like a comfort prize for all the pieces she suffered… the reality is that Cassie earned the Lieutenant title with all of her onerous work and expertise and dedication and dedication she’s given to being a Ranger. 

It definitely opened up an attention-grabbing storyline that might have been explored in the way forward for course – Cassie would now be the one to whom Cordell and Trey reported to, in addition to the chance to see James working aspect by aspect with Cassie! A partnership and friendship that wanted to be explored additional in the event you ask me! I do not suppose we had seen James with a second-in-command earlier than, so the staff dynamics would have been fairly completely different to say the least! Additionally, figuring out me, I’ve to level out the small second when Cassie is organising all of her private belongings in her new workplace, (Hawk’s Shadow assortment on high of the bookshelf as its meant to be!) having her pin Luna’s message to her from their karaoke date night time – “I can’t even look at you right now” made me tear up for certain and is doing the identical factor proper now as I’m typing it lol – he is nonetheless part of her and that was vital to see! Thank goodness for Anna Fricke saying there was no actual plan to get Cassie and Trey collectively, sorry not sorry, however I am without end going to be a Cassie/Luna shipper! #DavidLunaComeBackToUs

All of it culminated in Augie’s commencement get together and the aftermath of that as properly – we get to see all of our characters splitting up into smaller teams as they’re wont to, every scene giving us a little bit tease of what was to come back sooner or later for all of them in several methods – Geri with Stella and Sadie in the lounge of the Walker ranch, speaking concerning the Facet Step 2.0 in OKC and the way doubtlessly they’d have given us Sadie working there or even perhaps operating the place? Second-in-charge? Something to have saved Saylor Bell Curda round is a win for me! Ben and Liam have been about to maneuver in collectively which is certainly a contented factor to see… however extra curious was their ending scene when Liam will get whisked away on a top-secret project to assist the Governor! (SPOILER ALERT: apparently it was one thing about his lacking daughter and excessive stakes political involvement for Liam? Walker’s second spinoff proper right here possibly?)

Abeline and Bonham have been patched up and on the identical web page about their thought for retirement lastly it appeared; they weren’t going to be two very hands-on folks with the occasion planning enterprise, many of the day-to-day stuff I assume – together with the bride-of-the-week – would have been dealt with by Ben and never Abby herself, (actually the brand new present is writing itself right here, consider the chances folks!) however Bonham could be round to lend his boat out to {couples} when the time got here! And it was great to see the 2 of them taking their well-deserved boat trip collectively. That could be a couple one roots for, even when they’re already endgame!

Talking of endgame, simply earlier than heading out for his or her household trip, we get a glimpse of what Cordell may need been planning by way of his future with Geri – a hoop field slipped into his denims pocket means that he would suggest in some unspecified time in the future, however given all the ups and downs that they’ve been by means of this season, and figuring out that sure, they’ve come out of it collectively on the opposite aspect… it undoubtedly appeared as in the event that they have been nonetheless not fairly but on the identical web page, so would Geri have stated sure? Nicely… let’s go away that to our imaginations and suppose that possibly by the top of season 5, we might know for certain? I believe that it is good we did not get the precise proposal scene, that might have been far too rushed and never the appropriate name for them – there was extra work for Cordell to do: by way of how he wanted to be as a accomplice to Geri sure, but additionally to heal himself and work out what his subsequent steps have been on knowledgeable degree and private as properly. Someplace down the road, that is an ending we will image!

And because it was talked about very briefly firstly of the episode, viewers have been in for a shock once we all acquired to see simply who it was that lastly had moved into the Davidson’s household ranch; none apart from James Van Der Beek himself! Speak about a cool cameo! In fact it was additionally an entire head-scratcher of a second one might say, given we had no thought or inkling about who this new character was – however on condition that Anna Fricke talked about “kooky cult leader” I believe it is secure to say that we acquired our introduction to what would have been the fifth season’s new antagonist? Hey, at the least we’ve got fanfiction to tide us over now that the present has completed proper? (P.S – who else liked the Twilight shoutout! That acquired fun from me!)

Time to show it over to you all pretty people one final time now! What did you consider the collection finale? Was there something that you just thought wanted to have been answered earlier than we reduce to black? How many individuals are up for a Liam/Ben + Abby spinoff which offers with the kidnapping storyline but additionally has hilarious shenanigans for the occasion planner duo each week? Who right here found out that JVDB was certainly enjoying a cult chief based mostly on his outfit alone – or did the basket of handmade cleaning soap do the trick? I for one was utterly baffled to be sincere. I’ll go away the ultimate phrases and ideas and feedback to you guys! Thanks for letting me evaluate this present to the perfect of my skills… it is not goodbye, it is extra of an… till the subsequent one!
