I do like the twist on the old theme song they're using.
Welcome to Baja! Do you like beaches? How about girls in bikins? How about slow motion? How about Zoe blathering about how "my fakies could use some work, but my laybacks are solid." Right on, um, Jackson. 23 Skidoo? Michael tries to bond with her by saying "Hang 10," but apparently she doesn't like his awkward, fake slang. KITT butts in to say that they're nearly to their destination, which is the hotel "El Surfer". Seriously. Meanwhile, Zoe "gets into character" by leaning into Michael all in her bikini and all. When suddenly! Sarah's on the windshield-phone, and I guess there's supposed to be some awkwardness. And there is, but I think it's just because of the stilted dialogue and stiff acting. Alex orders Michael and Zoe to put KITT on full "find the RFID chip in the missing guy" mode, but approves Zoe's plan to get fish tacos and margaritas first. Sarah's appalled, but Alex is delighted that they're getting into character. Then he tells Sarah to get back to work on researching Agent MacGuffin.
The El Surfer is adobe and features vaguely flamenco background music. Michael is a little worried that their room has only one room. Zoe makes Michael uncomfortable by, in order, straddling him, talking about tequila, and being dressed in a bikini. KITT has found the homing beacon, though, so it's time for them to go right out to the car, which no longer has surfboards on it. KITT says that the homing beacon is coming from a car over there (fine, not "over there"; "20 yards to your 2:00," happy?), but he can't guarantee that the missing agent is in there because he doesn't have a visual. Oh, for the first time, KITT can't just commandeer a passing satellite and get high-resolution real-time images? Then it's time for a low-speed chase as Michael and Zoe follow the mystery car. And a dude watches from the shadows.
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.
