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

Cut to some woods, through which one Bruce Davison, a.k.a. the somewhat battered but otherwise peppy Charles Graiman, is running. He stumbles and falls, then raises his perfectly coiffed head (seriously, what conditioner is this guy using?) to stare, terrified, into the commercial break.

Back to Graiman race-walking through the woods. He's brought up short by a flashback to a conversation he had with Grey Hair, who is evidently employed as his double; Grey Hair spots the power company's van, smells a rat, and sends Graiman out via a secret passageway to escape harm. Graiman slips through a door disguised as a bookshelf, then out an ivy-covered outer door. He stops to watch Pointedly Evil and Asian Henchman approaching the house, then flees.

Back at the mansion, Rivai expositions that Graiman had been using the double for public appearances; then he started using "Ben for everything," to the point where most people didn't know the difference. Sheriff Ramsey thinks it sounds crazy, but Rivai points out that the double is dead, which proves it was a pretty solid plan. Rivai asks again for back-up from Ramsey since hers is hours away. Ramsey agrees.

KITT. Mike's asking who's after Sarah and what they want. Based on a license plate KITT traced, they figure out that Pointedly Evil and the Eviltones work for Blackriver Corporation, a private security firm. Mike looks gloomy as he says he spent time with some of their guys in Iraq: "They're just about the money." Sarah snarks that that sounds familiar. Mike shoots her a "...wow, really?" side-eye. KITT allows for an awkward pause before explaining for the benefit of the radio audience that Blackriver probably wants Graiman's research so that they can gain control of Prometheus, which in turn will allow them to crash planes, launch missiles, and so on and so forth. KITT predicts "chaos, certain death, and possible war" while showing various demolitions on his viewscreen, followed by a mushroom cloud. I see Graiman didn't get around to upgrading KITT's copy of SugarCoat to the latest release. Mike's surprised that Graiman would just leave that info on the hard drives, but KITT says that only Graiman can crack the encryption. "Or someone who knows what [he] knows," Mike grunts, glaring at Sarah, who's like, okay okay, we worked on the initial codes together, but then we stopped speaking. KITT pipes up that he also knows what Graiman knows, so now that he's protected Sarah and found Mike, he's supposed to go to the FBI and turn himself in. Pause. Sarah orders KITT to stop, now, so he screeches to a stop and Sarah jumps out. "That seemed somewhat irrational," KITT observes. Bruening does his best with the dated line "You clearly don't know much about women," and KITT steps on his punchline, such as it is, with some blather about what his database says, but as Mike hops out to follow Sarah he mercifully tells KITT to cram it.
