For The Love Of Mike
The Blackriver team takes a really really long time to land a chopper and disembark from it, after which Anthony Crapp expositions that, if they can get close to KITT, they can hack into it. "Him." Whatever. Pointedly Evil says that, if they find Graiman, the car will come to them.
Mike is frattily eating potato chips, and drops one in the foot well. KITT's like, do you mind, and viewscreens a picture of Iron Eyes Cody. Hee! Mike's like, whatever, man, and it's time to kick off the endless series of Odd Couple arguments that characterize the Knight Rider driver-car relationship. KITT even includes a Bible quote in his Felixing, which Mike characterizes as "intolerable," and then KITT slams the brakes on and whaps Mike and his bag of chips into the window. Mike burbles an apology with his lips mooshed on the glass, but KITT is only changing course; he got new coordinates, plus a phone call from Graiman that he's patching through. As Graiman's photo pops up, Mike and Sarah exchange "sweet, he's alive" looks.
Commercials. You can win your own KITT, or another Ford of your choice, by going to nbc.com/knight_rider. Won't get 167 miles to the gallon, though. Just FYI.
Graiman tells Sarah and Mike that he escaped through "the passage" and went to Jenny's. Mike isn't thrilled to hear that his mother is involved, or more generally that Graiman fingered him for this mission, but Graiman blows past that to say that KITT is bringing them to the motel, and that Sarah should use KITT's phone to contact Rivai: "Tell her and only her where you are."
Over a filler-y sequence of KITT buzzing along the desert roads at sunrise, we hear Kevin leaving Sarah a message, and then a message from a guy named Brock, who is apparently "kind of" Sarah's boyfriend. Mike makes fun, and then a message plays from Rivai, and Mike tells KITT to call her and viewscreen the motel's address.
Cut to Rivai picking up the call, confirming that Sarah's okay, and -- oops! -- putting her on speaker while Sheriff Ramsey is in the room. The sheriff can send a car to the motel immediately, and Rivai will meet them there within the hour. Rivai heads out; Ramsey stares corruptedly, then calls it in to the Blackriver team. In the front seat of the Ford Evilsplorer, Anthony Crapp reports that they're only 12 miles away from the motel.
