Episode 16 - Ruthless 
 
The city’s gun buy-back program is robbed, and the team goes on a hunt for those responsible. Meanwhile, Murtaugh walks on thin ice with Trish, Riggs finds an unlikely friend in Ruthie, and Captain Avery is reunited with a college frenemy who has key information about the case.
 
Series 2 overview
 
Lethal Weapon combines action and drama with friendship and humour as it follows classic cop duo Riggs (Clayne Crawford) and Murtaugh (Damon Wayans), who are working a crime-ridden beat in modern-day Los Angeles. Murtaugh has everything to live for, Riggs has nothing to lose, and in the series one finale, Murtaugh found out just how much Riggs was willing to sacrifice in pursuit of the drug cartel that he believes is responsible for his wife’s death.
 
Series two finds the pair up to their same tricks, with Murtaugh attempting to steer clear of the demons that haunt his partner, while navigating some challenging times at home, alongside his wife, Trish (Keesha Sharp). And even though Murtaugh seeks support in Riggs, he realises their partnership is still a volatile roller coaster ride.
