Say, is it just me or does Crusoe seem to have an awful lot of people in it for a show about a guy stranded all alone on a desert island for forty years?
Okay, we're back. Sarah and Michael are doing the inevitable "Nothing happened! I swear!" "I don't care if anything happened!" dance. Zoe throws in a nice twist with "At least nothing I remember," but it's still pretty generic. Zoe tries to bond with Billy about how fun it is to be in "the field", but Billy misses the safety of "the KITT Cave". Yeah, I'm not calling it that. Michael convinces Sarah that maybe Agent MacGuffin is involved with the terror cell they think they've unearthed, so it's off to the secret beach. Michael and Zoe grab the boards, leaving Billy and Sarah alone. Billy claims to be getting hives.
Skyler is standing in an extremely manly fashion with his thumbs tucked inside the waistband of his wetsuit, which is already peeled down off his torso. If it's peeled down any more, this show will be on cable. Zoe gives Michael an incomprehensible, slang-filled pep talk, and Skyler and Michael go off to look at the beach. We see someone wipe out dramatically (to the sound of a Wilhelm Scream, which always makes me happy), and Michael flinches a little but still seems willing to go out into the water. Back at KITT, Billy has this thing where he envies Sarah for being able to both operate computers (like him) and go outside (like the cool kids). Then KITT reports hat the tracking signal is less than 100 yards away, so off they zoom.
Michael and Skyler are out in the ocean and having ex-army chat. Skyler talks in ocean metaphors and I think what's happening here is that Michael is pretending that he wants to get into the illegal weapon smuggling business. A giant wave shows up and Skyler hits Michael with a backfist. Skyler surfs away and Michael asks KITT how to stand up on a surfboard. KITT's advice ("Just stand up") is not all that useful, and Michael wipes out almost immediately. Nice undercover work!
At the beach, Sarah and Billy have followed Skyler to a beat-up RV, while Zoe helps Michael stagger to his feet. KITT turns on the X-Ray, Infrared and Penetrating Radar. What, is he going to give the RV cancer? Oh, I kid. He's just seeing through walls. And using a parabolic microphone. It turns out that Skyler's crew has Agent MacGuffin's wife. The picture and audio cut out, which makes Sarah freak out a little. KITT gently suggests that she could try getting out of the car and looking through a window to see what's happening. Then he says the windows are too high for her, so Billy has to do it. What? They can't find her a box somewhere?
