Brilliant episode!
23 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode was a great watch with some cool fighting scenes, Walker and Trivette's relationship growing, and Alex in a skirt. In this episode we hear Walker talk a little about his martial arts background.

"Spoilers" The episode starts off with two businessmen having tea in China and one of them is a congressman who is trying to squeeze a deal out of the other more respectable and ethical businessman who gets murdered because of his countless deal rejections. Walker's old friend from Vietnam comes for a visit but it turns out his business in Dallas is anything other than legitimate as he knew the businessman who was murdered and is seeking revenge along with his fellow triad group called the Yakuza.

Walker and Trivette are assigned to protect the revered congressman after some attempts on his life. It doesn't take long for Walker to realize that the congressman may be a scumbag who wants to force his wife to be a prostitute for money. The episode ends in a cool fight between Walker and his old buddy (Yoshi) because Yoshi has intentions of killing him which is not Walker's idea of justice so it comes down to an epic battle between the two martial arts masters n which Walker gains the victory and also beats up the congressman and arrests him.

Great episode! This would be the very first in the series where someone puts up a good math against Walker which was nice to see especially considering he's not that bad of a guy but just thirsty for payback. The humor between Walker and Trivette is there and becomes more nourishing as the series goes on. Uncle ray was instrumental as usual being the wise man with lots of knowledge about life.
