Lethal Weapon: (S01E06) “Ties that Bind”


A solid episode overall. Nothing to0 ground shattering. 

Murtaugh’s daughter sent bra and panty pictures to her boyfriend. Riggs and Murtaugh confronted him and he had the audacity to not know who Murtaugh was talking about because he has so many girlfriends. Rather than get a beat down, the boyfriend, a known pick pocket, was enlisted to help with this episodes mystery. 

About that…a very beautiful scantily clad woman was chased down a street by a car and then eventually rammed into a tree. While investigating her death Riggs spots a former friend of his wife. Turns out she’s an escort working the same ring as their victim. First, Riggs and Murtaugh believe it’s a younger member of a very wealthy family and though he was douchy he was not the culprit. It was, in fact, his father. Riggs and Murtaugh showed up to one of his sex parties just in time to go chasing after him while he was chasing Rigg’s friend. She survived and decided the escort life was not for her anymore. Riggs got to spend some time with someone that reminded him of his wife. 

Murtaugh and his daughter had a heart to heart and though she is sad because the boy broke up with her, she ultimately understands why Murtaugh and her mother reacted the way they did. 

Buss laugh moment of this episode: When Riggs broke his new neighbor’s guitar. He was so nice and polite when he asked to strung a few strings. Little did the hipsters know…LOL

Punched in the feels moment of this episode:  When Riggs was told that he was not the only one who lost his wife. She was also someone’s friend, daughter, etc. Sometimes we get lost in our own pain that we forget that other people might be hurting too. 

Made me ponder for a sec moment of this episode:  Why throughout history, though women have proven to be just as strong and intelligent, men have chosen to simply view them as no more than sex toys…
