Kai is protective of Ellie and doesn’t want to see Ellie hurt by Yancy.”

Justin previously starred on The CW’s Walker: Independence, and had an appearance in its mothership show, Walker, at the end of Season 3. He is set for a recurring role in Season 4 as Detective David Luna. You can see our last interview with Cortez about Walker: Independence, here.
