Sars: B- | Grade It Now!
YOU GRADE IT
For The Love Of Mike

On the way to Vegas, Sarah and KITT have a conversation we've seen a hundred times before via the Terminator and Trek canons re: the inability of AIs to understand the nature of grief. Then Sarah gives us some backstory about her parents' divorce, how her mom got fed up with Graiman's "eccentricities" and paranoia. "You blame him for your parents' failed marriage," KITT Freuds, and Sarah says she did -- and she told him that, and she hasn't had a chance to take it back. KITT puts his tire in his mouth by posting a picture of Sarah and her mom on his viewscreen and remarking that he has no recent data for Mrs. Graiman. Sarah whispers that her mom died last year. KITT silently slow-dissolves the photo off of the viewscreen, which is hilariously cheesy, but kind of sweet at the same time. Hee. Then, after a brief exchange in which KITT tries to prove that he's down with the lingo by agreeing that something "sucks," Sarah's like, and you dredged all this shit up why? KITT says that sometimes it helps to talk about it -- or so he has read. Sarah eyes his viewscreen with fond exasperation and admits that that's true. They drive on.

Frat Pad. Mike is going to Vegas to try to win the money they need at poker. Spindly is anxious. Scene.

Cut to an inexplicably long montage of Vegas scenery, although the travelogue does include a cool shot of the Sphinx at the Luxor reflected in KITT's super-shiny exterior. KITT has located Mike at the Montecito. Then a wireless communicator set comes out of the glove box; KITT tells Sarah to put the earpiece in so they can keep in contact.

Rivai pulls up at Graiman's mansion, which looks exactly like Reuben's house in Ocean's Eleven. The local police chief, Sheriff Ramsey, greets her and says his men haven't found any evidence of foul play. Rivai is dismissive and blows past him to take a look around herself, but Ramsey asks her for a favor first -- he doesn't have contact info for Sarah, and he needs someone to ID the body. Would Rivai mind? She curtly agrees and heads inside. Rather more time than would seem necessary is devoted to Ramsey fidgeting on the front steps before we head over to...

...another Vegas travelogue. Y'all, we watch CSI; we know what Vegas looks like. Air the pilot at 90 minutes if your material's that thin. Mike's at a poker table, bluffing his way to fortune, when Sarah marches up with a smart remark. He's shocked to see her, she's like, "Nice to see you too, jerk," and then she tries to convince him to leave and come with her right away and she'll explain later. He's like, there is no explanation that would work, and she tells him her father is missing and possibly dead, and she survived an abduction attempt that morning. "That's actually a pretty good start," he admits (heh), but then gets all bent when she says she hasn't gone to the cops. Cut to Smoke, reporting that he has a visual on Sarah and she's talking to some guy. The baddies fan out through the casino as Mike says he's sorry, but he's got problems of his own. Just then, KITT reports on comms that the baddies are in play. Sarah tugs Mike's arm and tells him that her would-be abductors "are here." Mike stares us stonily into the break.
