'Lethal Weapon' Recap: Can Riggs and Murtaugh Stop a Killer Before He Commits an Unforgivable Crime?

So, "The Seal Is Broken" is about Riggs' alcoholic binges, Miranda's first death anniversary, sin, retribution, lost love and families who refuse to let go. Lethal Weapon brings us through a series of murders and attempted murders where the victims are sinners who die (or almost die) in the same way that they confessed killing someone else. Sounds confusing, but it's really not.   Lethal Weapon 's 13th installment juxtaposes sinful love, with innocent love, and grieving love. The first character is a philanderer. The second is a young boy overwhelmed by the thrill of young love and hormones. The third is our man, Riggs, who still mourns his wife, but faces the fact that being alive means being able to love in every way a man is made to love. There's also some commentary about familial love which come in the forms of Riggs' father-in-law and Murtaugh, but we'll get to that later. ...Read More... //

'Lethal Weapon' Recap: Is Murtaugh Guilty of Black-on-Black Discrimination?

This week's Lethal Weapon fix, "Brotherly Love," isn't as testosteroney as its predecessors, but that's mostly because Murtaugh is suffering from a defective pacemaker and needs to take it easy. Of course, when your partner is an adrenaline junky with a death wish and a penchant for making rules up as he goes ... there won't be much R&R on the agenda.   Riggs and Murtaugh go up against their most frightening adversary yet: Trish Murtaugh. Trish's client, Dino Brant, is hauled to the precinct because blood found at the scene of an attempted robbery matches his DNA. The DNA sample is dirty and Riggs conveniently forgot to get a warrant before searching the suspect's work locker, so Trish is not about to let the robbery charge stick. Instead, Riggs' blurting problem outs Murtaugh to Trish and lots of humor and love ensue.   ...Read More... //

'Lethal Weapon' Recap: Has Captain Avery's Past Caught Up with Him?

Riggs and Murtaugh try to figure out if someone in the sheriff's department is responsible for the death of a Texas Ranger in this episode of Lethal Weapon , "Lawmen." The question of integrity is at the forefront as two legal entities take the ring against each other with the LAPD's Captain Avery right smack in the middle of it all.   From the beginning, I was skeptical about Captain Avery. I had him pegged as a major douche. As we've rolled through the first 10 episodes, I have come to respect him more and more, but "Lawmen" has sealed the deal as we get a view into Avery's past when he was a mere detective and Roger Murtaugh's partner. Avery has to choose between his own aspirations and doing what's right. When the truth comes out, Murtaugh rips Avery a new back side, and Avery takes it with aplomb. The only one willing to cut Avery some slack is Riggs, who knows that sometimes you have to color outside the lines. ...Read More... //
