Riggs and Murtaugh follow a violent case involving a drug cartel, theft, two killings and, unfortunately, Murtaugh's old T.O., Ned Brower. As the case unfolds, it turns out that Ned is more involved than just driving the cash, which leaves Murtaugh with an inevitably dangerous decision to make. Looking for back-up, the duo turns to Cruz for help. In the midst of all the chaos, Riggs continues to depend on outside vices, rather than face the reality of Miranda's death, while Murtaugh and Trish struggle to find alone time.

Did You Know?


The driver of the armored truck at the beginning was a character by the name of Ned Brower, played be none other than Ted Levine. This scene plays homage to another movie Ted Levine was in, HEAT (1995) where he was part of a crew that rammed a large truck into the side of an armored truck in order to rob it. See more »

The buddy magic's really starting to kick in
5 October 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

I've made this comparison before, but I see so much of "The Good Guys" in this series. And just like Stark and Bailey, Riggs and Murtaugh get assigned the little cases before things blow wide open. It's one of the show's virtues that so much time is spent developing the characters in between shootouts. If "Lethal Weapon" has legs, it's because of this particular partnership.

To that end, this week features a few good one-liners, and the opening armored car heist was a nice nod to "Heat". It's another episode that made me smile and that makes it easy to give this show a chance.
