Everyone shouts various colors of wire, and with ten seconds to go, Billy and Sarah blurt "Redwhite! Whitered! White! It's white!" at each other. Mike cuts the white wire, and everything is fine. Well, that wasn't dramatically satisfying at all, really. They just cut the wire at random and got lucky. What's the point of that? They couldn't have had some sort of technological reason for their choice? Maybe KITT could have had an upgrade that let him distinguish between ground wires and current-bearing ones? Or Cassandra could have heard something earlier in the episode that told her about how the bad guy always likes to use the white wire instead of the black one. Something like that, to tie the moment into the story. Instead of this, which was "We have a one in three chance of not blowing up. Hooray, we won!" Blah. And the only options were white, yellow, and blue, so why were Billy and Sara saying "red"? This scene stinks.
Okay, so the wire gets cut just in time for the LED countdown to get to "1". What an innovative and unusual development! I've certainly never seen that before. KITT's remote control override finally kicks in and stops the truck. It does not appear to have actually been on top of the dam at any point, so that's another reason this scene was completely pointless. The truck and KITT screech to a stop, and Mike comments that he can now take "riding a one-megaton bomb" off his bucket list. Sarah finally establishes that the Federal Reserve is moving a huge amount of gold today, so now we know what we're here for. KITT says that this will be the biggest gold heist in U.S. history if it succeeds. I'm not sure the word "heist" really fits the KITT persona.
KITT zooms to the Federal Reserve Bank of Phoenix, where the robbery is taking place. The goon-filled hummers are on one side of the parking lot, and KITT is on the other side. All the goons pile out and point machine guns at Mike, who has mysteriously gotten out of his bulletproof supercar. Mike stands next to KITT and cockily tells him to transform to attack mode. In front of everybody? I thought we were going to keep under cover for once. [Also, why didn't you turn into attack mode when you were trying to catch a convoy of explosives and/or impress a lady? - Z] KITT pops out his rocket launchers and blows up the Hummers, and the cops show up to take everyone away. Cooperton is actually a pretty good sport about the whole thing, complimenting Mike on his nice car and just glancing at Cassandra as he's led away in handcuffs. Cassandra thanks Mike and kisses him, which Sarah sees on the big HQ screen. Billy and Zoe are uncharacteristically silent.
