Inscrutable, karate-chopping Cord Walker (Chuck Norris
) and his more "by the book" partner Jimmy Trivette (Clarence Gilyard Jr.
) continue to cleanse Dallas of the worst sort of criminal vermin during season six of Walker, Texas Ranger
. Walker and Trivette are occasionally given backup this season by a brace of recurring characters: Dallas detective Carlos Sandoval (Marco Sanchez) and youthful martial arts instructor Trent Malloy (James Wlcek), who become weekly regulars after the late-season episode "Undercover
." This season yields a pair of two-episode adventures, "Lucas
" (featuring a pre-Sixth Sense Haley Joel Osment
) and "Last of a Breed
, both of which were syndicated as movies in TV markets outside the United States. In the season's cliffhanger finale, Walker is about to propose marriage to his longtime sweetheart, Assistant D.A. Alex Cahill (Sheree J. Wilson
), when she is struck down with bullets fired by one of her old enemies!
