Lethal Weapon RECAP and REVIEWS (55)

  • Family Ties

    Family Ties

    I don't know what is going on, but Lethal Weapon Season 2 Episode 21 threw me for a huge loop.

    I know about Avery possibly running for office a while back, but at that time, he had decided not to do it. Now, all of a sudden, he's out, and Murtaugh is in.

    How did this change so quickly in the course of two episodes with nary a mention?

    It's highly disappointing that Kevin Rahm's Avery will no longer be part of the Lethal Weapon team. There's always the possibility he might come back, but the Commission wouldn't have offered Murtaugh the job if Avery was coming back.

    It also sets up the possibility that Lethal Weapon isn't going to be renewed for a third season. If Roger takes the captain's job, he will no longer be partnered up with Riggs.

    No Riggs and Murtaugh means no Lethal Weapon.

  • Jesse's Girl

    Jesse's Girl

    It was hard to watch Lethal Weapon Season 2 Episode 20 without thinking about the controversy surrounding Clayne Crawford and his alleged onset behavior.

    One of my biggest gripes about the show over the last several episodes has been the lack of connection between Riggs and Murtaugh. The bromance that made us all fall in love with this show has been off kilter like the entire show has been lately.

    If the stories are true, then it makes complete sense why this is so, and that's a disappointment.

    I'm not going to pass judgment on Crawford because all the facts have yet to be laid out, but what a mess. And what a disservice to fans who have supported the show since the beginning.

    "Jesse's Girl" seemed to emulate the mess behind the scenes. There was no Riggs and Roger connection. Trish and Roger were way off base with Riana. Riana herself was out of character.

    And those awful flashbacks returned. Oh, and let's not forget a...


  • Leo Getz Hitched

    Leo Getz Hitched

    I don't know about anyone else, but Lethal Weapon Season 2 Episode 19 seemed a little out of place and all over the place.

    Was there a time jump I missed because I can't remember Molly and Riggs getting back together. And Riana possibly being pregnant right after she got her driver's license on Lethal Weapon Season 2 Episode 18 seemed a bit overdramatic even if it ended up not being true.

    Sorry, folks, but not even Leo Getz could save this one.

    I don't even know where to begin so let's start with Riggs and Molly.

    I love the idea of Riggs and Molly being back together again, but I would have liked to have seen how they got to that point considering the last time we saw them together she was fuming at his idiocy and didn't want to see him again.

    I didn't quite understand why Jake had to be back into the mix of things. Maybe it was to give some closure so that Molly and Riggs could get on with their lives without there bei...


  • Frankie Comes to Hollywood

    Frankie Comes to Hollywood

    If Riana knew that Roger almost lost his life the night she was born, she might not have been so quick to criticize her dad for being as overprotective as he was while teaching her how to drive on Lethal Weapon Season 2 Episode 18.

    It's hard enough watching your kids grow up, but when there is a deeper issue at play, it's understandable that letting go might be a bit more difficult.

    I wonder if Trish even knew what happened to Roger that night? Knowing Roger, he probably didn't share how Frankie Kelso almost made her a widow while she was in labor with their daughter.

    Roger has been in some scary situations, but that night Kelso held a gun to his head had to be one of the scariest of his life. Of course, Roger wanted to bring down the man who almost put a bullet in his head, but he never got the opportunity -- until now.

  • The Odd Couple

    The Odd Couple

    That happy ending between Molly and Riggs we were all hoping for didn't quite happen on Lethal Weapon Season 2 Episode 17, but at least Trish and Roger are back in their happy place.

    That's a huge relief.

    What is the world without a united Trish and Roger?

    While I love Trish to the ends of the earth and back, I'm actually on Roger's side.

    I get that Trish was concerned about Roger's safety, but c'mon, woman! The man deserves to have a little fun in his life. He had every right to be upset at being called grandpa, and it wasn't wrong that he wanted to prove to everyone that he wasn't a grandpa at all!

    So for Trish to drag this out as long as she has just to prove a point is rather ridiculous. It's been how many episodes now?

    However, it did provide us with a way to get back that great Riggs and Roger magic that's been absent for so long. And boy has that been missed!



  • Ruthless


    I'm not ready to say goodbye to Ruthie just yet! 

    Lethal Weapon Season 2 Episode 16 may have been the farewell for easily one of the best characters ever introduced on the show, but hopefully, it won't be the last that we ever see of her. 

    She has to come back to visit Riggs, right? Right?!

    It was a fun-filled and occasionally emotional hour. In other words, it was a solid hour of Lethal Weapon that struck all the right chords. In a season that has been uneven, that's an accomplishment. 

    You know who was fun throughout this hour? Roger. I like it when Roger can get in on some of the action, humor, and fun without being regaled to the "straight man" to Riggs' chaotic shtick.

    It's too bad that Trish doesn't enjoy Roger this way. Though the car lady...


  • An Inconvenient Ruth

    An Inconvenient Ruth

    On Lethal Weapon Season 2 Episode 15, Riggs feared that he was losing his edge, and Roger got a taste of the Daredevil life.

    If that wasn't fantastic enough on its own, Riggs caught a glimpse of himself in the future via Ruthie. If he remains sober and takes care of himself, that is.

    Ruthie may be the best character introduced on the show to date.

    Roger channeling his inner Riggs was entertainment for the ages and led to another one of those classic franchise scenes. How could you not enjoy every second of it?

    Of course, Roger's walk on the wild and crazy side was all thanks to being mistaken for Harper's grandfather. First, while Roger is old enough to be her grandad, he doesn't actually look so old that he could only be her grandfather.

    That young firefighter mistaking him as such felt a bit off. Trish was unfazed by it, but Roger spent the rest of the hour trying to prove he's not some old dude.

    It proved ...


  • Double Shot of Baileys

    Double Shot of Baileys

    There was a flicker of the old spark between Riggs and Murtaugh, and it was great to see.

    I was worried when Riggs and Murtaugh teamed up separately with Bailey and Bowman, but by the end of Lethal Weapon Season 2 Episode 14, it was almost like old times.

    The only thing I would change about this episode was the amount of time we spent in flashbacks about Riggs past. I get that there was a correlation between Riggs losing his truck and the opportunity to delve further into his childhood, but all it did was drag the story down.

    This could have been a really fun hour, but every time we circled back to Riggs and his lost truck the momentum was lost.

    Did anyone else feel that or was it just me?

    I didn't like that Riggs, once again, sunk to rock bottom and that it was all related to his childhood and his dad. And, once again, I say enough is enough with it all.

    After all his craziness on Lethal Weapon Season 2 Epis...


  • Better Living Through Chemistry

    Better Living Through Chemistry

    What was that all about?

    It pains me to have to say this, but this show has lost its magic.

    On Lethal Weapon Season 2 Episode 13, Riggs ends up in a mental institution as part of an investigation, and the experience gives us another look into his very dismal childhood.

    There are several problems I had with this installment of Lethal Weapon, but let's get that horrible memory of his mother's suicide out of the way first.

    Doesn't anyone else think enough is enough? We knew that Riggs' mom died and that it had to do with cancer. The idea that she actually killed herself because of it and that Riggs basically witnessed her death takes it way over the top.

    Riggs' childhood is so messed up, it's almost unbelievable to me that he was able to become a Navy SEAL, let alone a cop. Wouldn't his past have been a factor and have prevented him from becoming either? 

    He certainly didn't just start drinking after Miranda's d...


  • Diggin' Up Dirt

    Diggin' Up Dirt

    Trish and Leo Getz make a pretty good team!

    The unlikely duo teamed up to help Roger and Riggs solve a murder case, and Getz proved himself to be a real Sherlock Holmes.

    While Lethal Weapon Season 2 Episode 12, was lackluster, watching Leo and Trish in action together was lots of fun.

    Leo Getz is not someone you want around all the time, but in small doses he works. He was at the right place at the right place at the right time, but isn't he always?

    It's surprising that the guy doesn't have a stack of lawsuits against him for stalking because he sure does a lot of that. 

    I liked that Trish stepped out of the lines at the funeral when Leo teased her with the idea to do their own investigation. Roger was more interested in positioning himself as the next department captain, so he completely missed what was completely obvious to Leo.

    Leo struck the right chords when he suggested they work together because she wa...
