The CW has released the synopsis for "Don't Fence Me In", the fourth episode of the first season of Walker. The series, a reboot of the classic Walker, Texas Ranger drama, debuted last week to the biggest Thursday primetime audience the network has seen since 2018 with 2.43 million viewers tuning in to check out Walker during its pilot presentation. Walker was also the most popular program for its specific time slot since DC's Legends of Tomorrow in 2016. The series was first announced in 2019 and stars Supernatural star Jared Padalecki in the titular role.
The series sees Padalecki's Walker returning home to Austin after being undercover for two years only to discover that there's harder work to be done at home. A widower, Walker tries to reconnect with his children as well as additional family challenges. Those additional challenges appear to be a major focus of the episode which will see Walker learn from his brother Liam (Keegan Allen) about some trouble that happened while Walker was away. But Walker won't be the only person dealing with an uncomfortable situation. Micki (Lindsey Morgan) will find herself in the spotlight during an investigation, something that makes her a bit uncomfortable.
