Michael and Stevie's marriage echos David Hasselhoff and Catherine Hickland's actual wedding ceremony which was also performed by minister Henry Cutrona and saw Edward Mulhare giving away the bride. See more »


When the C4-laden radio-controlled model plane is seen in its final shot flying toward Michael's beachside chalet, the house explodes a couple seconds before the plane reaches it. You can clearly see that the plane barely enters the frame at the right but proceeds no further before the detonation; the plane never reaches the house before the house blows up. See more »

It hangs 'round it still
6 August 2006 | by (Pennsylvania, USA) – See all my reviews

Arguably the most intense "Knight Rider" ever, this episode takes the viewer on an emotional roller coaster. Michael's new life as a one-man criminal fighting machine truly comes full circle as he is faced with turmoil in everything he now knows.

Michael encounters distress, love, pain, fear, triumph, and defeat all in a matter of TV minutes. His past as well as his future is called into the public eye, and he must deal with both. The character relationships viewers have learned to associate with and covet are challenged like never before.

The series continued for several episodes after this one, although many fans consider this to be the "actual end" of the Michael Knight saga. If encountered in syndication, Knight Rider fans would be remiss to skip this installment.
