Episode 7 - Birdwatching
 
Riggs and Murtaugh investigate the death of a surfer. Meanwhile, Murtaugh grows suspicious of Trish’s new friend, with whom she’s been working on a charity event – and then learns it’s NBA champion SCOTTIE PIPPEN (guest starring as himself). Also, Riggs has violent nightmares that bring up scars from his childhood.
 
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.
