Actually, the chase is a little faster than I expected. This is where Zoe shouts "Burn rubber, KITT!" in a way that suggests she's already gotten into the tequila. The chase suddenly terminates in an ambush, featuring machine guns and a rocket launcher of some sort. KITT gets as far as "Prepare for --" before the rocket hits. After the explosion, there is no sign of KITT. So I guess I get to knock off early tonight? The guy with the rocket launcher walks up and studies the scorched spot on the ground as we go to commercial. There's a cliff going down to the beach. I mention that to set up a "cliffhanger" joke, but I'm not sure it's worth it. Let's just skip ahead to where we learn that KITT jumped into the ocean somehow, and now they're in submarine mode or something. [Michael seems pretty calm here, given that he prefers dry land. - Zach] The rocket was apparently incredibly advanced. Also, Agent MacGuffin (whose name is really Turner, but I like my name better) withdrew two million dollars recently, so everyone's sure he's gone rogue.
KITT drives out of the ocean onto the land, but only one kid sees him. I'm sure that was totally inconspicuous. No time to wonder what "going undercover" means to these people, though, because it's time for another scene where KITT wrestles with those complicated human emotions. Short version: KITT thinks Michael should go have sex with Zoe, but Michael thinks that's a bad idea. It totally is, unless you're hoping to end up with some interesting new scars. So Michael goes to sleep inside KITT, which is also a little weird.
The next morning, Zoe and Michael are showing Agent MacGuffin's picture around. Shouldn't they be surfing a little? It's nice that KITT's helping out with a voice stress analyzer, though. Michael gets accosted by three beach toughs and has to administer a whuppin'. Said whuppin' is going poorly until the shadowy dude from before (the one who watched the chase start earlier, remember?) shows up, claiming to be named "Skyler." He notices Michael's tattoo (which everyone always does, which makes me wonder who thought he'd be good at undercover work) and Michael, Zoe and Skyler start drinking tequila. Skyler eventually excuses himself and encourages them to come visit him at some secret surfing location. Zoe and Michael were not fooled by the "mysterious stranger who just happens to show up as the hero is getting attacked" ploy (that old chestnut!), so they have KITT check the fingerprints Skyler left on a bottle of Corona. The fingerprint scanner is the same thing that printed out the party invitation in the last episode.
