Warning: The following contains spoilers for Thursday’s Walker finale. Continue at your own risk!

Those darn Davidsons finally got what came to them during WalkerFinal of season 2.

In order to confess to Gale that they killed Marv – she had cut after he told her about Geri and hit him in the head with the lantern, lit the fire – Geri and Cordell first had to fight a fake fight for Gale’s advantage. they said some hurtful things to each other. Then mother and daughter found themselves in a burning shed after confession, but Cordell appeared in time to rescue a trapped and unconscious Gale. Gale then promised to confess everything to the authorities and apologized to Abeline, and the Walkers got their ranch back. (Denise also admitted that she cut Cordell’s seal.)

Elsewhere in the episode: Geri told Cordell that it was still too soon for her to be together and that they were skipping too many steps; Captain James offered Trey a position as a Texas Ranger; Liam decided to work on the ranch; and Stella was about to graduate. But just as the family was getting ready for the big day, a mysterious van (possibly connected to the paramilitary group that Miles was trying to silence?) Grabbed Cordell as he ran, and tied him up. “Where’s Dad?” Stella asked her.

To get answers to that burning question and much more, TVLine spoke to showrunner Anna Fricke about what’s coming up in season 3 and the Supernatural alum she wants on the show.

TVLINE | What can you say about the danger Cordell found himself in and who is behind it?
This is something we’ve obviously exploring in Season 3, and our writers’ room is up and running, so we’ve just in the thick of it to discuss it all. I will say that Cordell in his research has come too close to something, and it is possible that something unexpected is coming back from his past to pursue him.

TVLINE | How will his loved ones deal with what happens to him? I know it’s not the first time he’s been in danger, but this seems pretty scary.
Yes, exactly. This is kind of how we met Cordell and his family in season 1, [with] Walker misses and he handles the homecoming in the first season of the show, but everyone around him has grown up a lot and may currently have a different reaction to his absence. That we will see the characters react differently and perhaps grow up in ways they did not expect.

TVLINE | Cassie said she will fight, but it is Cordell who finds himself in danger because of this new threat. Will she feel guilty about it?
We met her as a Ranger who was very actively looking for her missing partner, Miles, and she is someone who is very dedicated and very passionate about what she does, and she is a very true blue partner. So the fact that this is happening on her watch, for better or worse, will only bring her more fighting. We will see many more bigger stories with Cassie in season 3.

TVLINE | You have now solved some great mysteries and problems with the Davidsons. So will that family still be next season?
Yes. There’s actually some stuff we had to trim with them from the final that we did not get into. Stella and Colton are still strong, so I’m interested in exploring that romance yet. The ranch is still next door. It is possible that the land is still for sale. Not that it matters, but just that they might still be around. The Davidsons, we did not kill any of them. [Laughs] There’s still more story to play, especially with Colton and Dan Miller.

TVLINE | I want to talk about my favorite maybe reluctant Davidson, Geri. What can we expect for her upcoming season and, in particular, her relationship with Walker? Will the timing ever be good for those two?
On our show, we have a saying that we are always looking for maximum heart rate, and that is when we know we are on the right track. I love her and of course want to continue to oppose her as much as possible. [Laughs] But for Geri [next] season, romance aside, saw all the revelations she had last season just about her own origins and what happened to her as a child and what happened between her biological parents, and just taking on that history and that knowledge has really influenced has. And so we will see a lot more, in Season 3, of Geri who more decides who it is she really wants to be on her own, regardless of any bloodline. Just what she wants as a person. We will see that she is very proactive in season 3.

TVLINE | Do Geri or Walker feel that the things they shouted at each other during that false fight held a piece of truth?
Oh yes, absolutely. On the script pages, when we wrote that dialogue, we had action lines where the actors exchanged looks, “That came out a little too easily.” There’s a great moment when Geri looks back at Walker as she leaves, when it’s a look of concern. It’s the quickest flash that comes across her face, like, “Are we okay? Because that went a little deep.” It the feel real, and I think that will come up again between them, because it is not so [the characters are] professional actors. So to make that fight as fierce as it was, I think they both meant at least a part of it. So they want to work harder. It’s like they say to each other: They went too hard, they skipped too many steps because they thought they could, because they have so much history together. But really, there is more between them. They just went faster than they probably were right.

Walker Final RecapTVLINE | I actually thought Trey would consider joining that rescue team you introduced a few episodes ago, but now he’s been offered this position as Texas Ranger. Why did you decide to go that route? Was that some kind of bait-and-switch?
We wanted to introduce the Austin Rescue because it’s great. We definitely want to explore that world more. We thought in episode 18, it would be especially fun, considering Trey’s military experience, for him to show that skill. But also, we were excited about the idea of ​​taking him further into the Texas Rangers and just wanting to see that side of him, kind of get him out, run, jump, all that.

TVLINE | Trey’s way out of the show when it premiered by Micki, but then Lindsey Morgan left the series. So how much of a learning curve has it been to find how his character fits into the show without Micki?
It was very important to us, both for the character and for the actor, that he feels safe in knowing that he exists on his own. That’s why we really wanted to get him into stories where he did not depend on how he got in. That’s exactly how he got in, but even before Micki left, we liked that he was more involved with the Walker family so he could become a part of that household. Because they really bring people into that family, Abeline in particular is always welcome in walkers, and we really wanted Trey to make contact with the Walkers at that level. I hope we soon made it clear that he was here in his own right. There was not so much a learning curve because we just wanted to make it clear. Over there used to be a learning curve in [figuring out] how can we best show him and in what profession can he be, in principle, where he will deal with most people and we can really leave him on his own, and we feel like we get there.

TVLINE | You have a lot of Jared Padalecki’s old hand Supernatural friends after the camera. Is there anyone you would like to see on screen next season?
You know, it’s hard because we have Mark Sheppard [the prequel spinoff] Independencealthough he has a pitch for how he could appear on Walker. Actually, you know who I would love, with whom I have worked before [on Being Human], is Mark Pellegrino. That would be a lot of fun.
