11"Pilot"Jessica YuAnna FrickeJanuary 21, 2021 (2021-01-21)2.44[8]
When his beloved wife Emily is murdered, veteran Texas Ranger Cordell Walker buries his grief by volunteering for a nearly eleven month long undercover assignment, during which time he becomes estranged from his daughter Stella. Upon returning home, his friend, Captain Larry James, partners him with Micki Ramirez, a former State Highway Patrol officer eager to make a name for herself as a Ranger. The two work together to shut down a fake charity run by a brother and sister who are involved in heroin trafficking, but Walker annoys Micki when he assaults a suspect who insulted his wife's memory. Stella acts out, telling her father that he always puts duty over his family. When Captain James offers him the chance to join an anti-cartel task force, Walker contemplates turning him down after realizing that he needs to fix his broken relationships. His mother Abeline offers to let him move into an old farmhouse on the Walker family ranch so he can start over, but Walker decides he wants to fix up the house he bought with Emily.
22"Back in the Saddle"Steve RobinAnna FrickeJanuary 28, 2021 (2021-01-28)2.11[9]
Walker learns that, under new rules instituted by Captain James, he can't return to field duty without passing a recertification test. During the horsemanship exam, he starts thinking about his wife and finds himself unable to finish. Regardless, Walker inserts himself into an investigation of a fire at a local ranch, which left a farmhand dead and supposedly killed a prize racehorse. Micki learns that the fire was staged, and that the stable owner, facing ruin after collecting large bets for a horse with an injured leg, tried to kill the horse in secret before arranging for a flight out of the country. Walker finds the horse still alive and rides it to help Micki capture the fleeing suspects. James clears him for active duty in gratitude. Stella continues to act out, forcing Walker to finally confront the reality that pursuing his wife's killer has done nothing but take him away from his responsibilities as a father. When it becomes clear Stella and August want to live in the farmhouse rather than their old home, he goes along with it.
33"Bobble Head"Randy ZiskSeamus Kevin FaheyFebruary 4, 2021 (2021-02-04)1.86[10]
Walker is put in a difficult position when his childhood friend Hoyt Rawlins returns to Austin and immediately steals Micki's new truck. Hoyt is close with Abeline and her grandchildren, but is also a professional thief and hustler working to sell guns to Mexican cartels. Micki is forced to arrest Hoyt when Walker refuses to do so, after being warned by Bonham that he has a "blindspot" for people from his past. August succumbs to peer pressure and attends a bonfire for local high school freshmen where he gets drunk on whiskey. He accuses Stella of trying to drive their father away by breaking the law. Walker's instincts allow him to see through Hoyt's deception and figure out where the guns are being packed; the dealers are arrested and Micki stops Hoyt from escaping in her truck again. Stella, with her father by her side, takes responsibility for her actions and is sentenced to pay a fine and do community service by a judge. The experience enables the two to finally make peace with each other. On the way home, Walker, noting that Stella's license hasn't been suspended yet, shows her how to drive stick the same way Emily taught him.
