Season 2 Summary
The main arc of the season concerns the feud between the Davidsons and the Walkers. It dates back to when Abby broke up with Marv Davidson to marry Bonham. Later Marv died in a barn fire that the Davidsons believe Cordell was responsible for. This season it is revealed that Marv had given away Gale's first child who was unwell. He told no-one except Anny. That child turns out to be none other than Geri! In settling an old bet, the two families hold a horse race, and the Davidson's win under dubious circumstances but it means they get the Walker ranch. Geri's new relationship with the Davidson's puts a strain on her burgeoning affair with Cordell and they take a break.
Liam, is been sacked for planting evidence on Dan Miller, Denise's husband who he suspects of being involved with Serano's gang (which he was). Eventually Geri becomes suspicious that Gale new her child had survived and confronts her. Gale confesses that she killed Marv when she found out her child was still alive.
In the Texas Rangers, Micki starts the season undercover trying to find the sniper who tried to kill Cordell. She meets up with her old fiance, who she left at the altar. He's not only in Serano's gang, he was actually the sniper. Micki ends up killing him, when he again plans to take out Cordell. The trauma of this causes a crisis for Mickey and she decides to leave Austin, the Rangers and Trey.
Her replacement is Cassie PErez, who has left the Dallas Rangers to investigate her partner Miles' disappearance, which has been ruled a homicide despite the lack of a body. Eventually, Cordell and James track down Miles who is very much alive. He explains that he and his boss faked his death after the shadowy organization they were investigating threatened his daughter. Miles is sent into witness protection.
Cassie fits in well with the local Rangers and Cordell and his family and friends. She ends up moving into an apartment next to Trey's. Along the way Cordell hooks up wit Twyla who he knew when he was undercover, but that doesn't work out. He and Geri also break up permanently. The Walkers' get the ranch back and Liam leaves the law to work there.
