YOU GRADE IT
For The Love Of Mike

Lurking. Door slowly opening. Pistol. Lurking. Smoke finds no one in his assigned room, just a phone off the hook. Pistol. Door. Asian Henchman enters a room. Pointedly Evil enters a room. Jenny fires the pistol at last, hitting the fire-safety instructions sign instead of the intruder -- who turns out, of course, to be Mike. The sound attracts Smoke, who heads toward it as, inside the room, Jenny asks if Mike's okay and Graiman asks where Sarah is and Jenny bitches that Graiman "built another one" and blah blah. Mike's like, "another" one? Graiman thinks it's time Mike learned the truth, but before anyone can spit it out, KITT reports that the three "heat sources" are headed their way.

While Anthony Crapp is methodically proceeding through KITT's firewalls, Mike, Graiman, and Jenny are hopping out the window of their room, and Graiman is explaining that, after he finished the first KITT, he got relocated so that nobody would ever know who built it. Over comms, KITT suggests avoiding visual contact; Mike skips "duh"-ing this advice to ask his mother how she fits in. They were relocated there too, she says, when Mike was a baby -- "at [his] father's request." I thought on first viewing that the big reveal would be that Graiman is Mike's father, which means Mike and Sarah are actually siblings, which means ew, but then I remembered that there's a Hasselcameo still to come. The three of them scuttle across the suspiciously deserted motel outbuildings as Mike bitches that his father left them, and Graiman says his father "had obligations he couldn't abandon, even for you." Yeah, somebody had to buy those Members Only jackets. Jenny concurs, and ends the "suspense" by telling Mike that his father's name is Michael Knight, the driver of the first KITT. Jenny and Graiman gaze at him fondly. Mike gazes back all, "You two are freaks." Heh. Then Graiman shrugs, "He'll get over it" (hee), and Mike rounds the corner and runs smack into...

...Rivai, who's got a gun on him. Graiman calls her off, and they all head over to KITT, walking entirely too slowly for a group of people who know armed assassins are nearby. Rivai tells Graiman that his double got killed, and asks how long it would take to break Graiman's encryption codes. He estimates that it "could be hours," and Rivai's talking about getting him somewhere safe and getting the drives back, but Graiman doesn't really listen because he's reuniting with Sarah. Then he greets KITT and asks if he can pinpoint the baddies' location. KITT, using the froggy voice common to all compromised AIs since the HAL 9000 first debuted it in 2001: A Space Odyssey, garbles that he's trying, but he's getting hacked at the moment. KITT's estimate that the baddies will have control of his drives in about 23 seconds sets off...a lot of worried staring. "Fourteen seconds," KITT croaks, like, does someone want to...do something? Besides stand around waiting for Pointedly Evil, in an attempt to create suspense which Pointedly Evil will himself disperse by prating on instead of just killing you all? (...Spoiler.) After an ice age, Graiman orders KITT to shut himself down.
