                            'Lethal Weapon': Episode 13 Coyote Ugly takes us to the US-Mexico border

If you don't see a new 'Lethal Weapon' episode coming up this Tuesday, don't worry, the show hasn't suddenly gone off the air. The buddy cop drama is set to return after on February 12 with an all-new episode 13 called 'Coyote Ugly'.

It is unclear why there's no new episode this week. However, the week after, most of your favorite shows may also not have new episodes as most of primetime will be occupied by the State of the Union. It's a bummer, we know. However, when the show returns, it definitely promises an action-packed hour. 

After a smashing episode 12, LAPD's finest return with a case that takes them to the Mexican border. The episode synopsis reveals that Cole and Murtaugh investigate a case involving a father and daughter crossing the border and end up uncovering a major issue with the California Border Patrol. "Whatever they were bringing across, it was worth killing for", an official tells the duo in the promo. It shows Cole and Murtaugh trying to fight as hard as they can with nowhere to run. There's no sign of the Murtaugh we saw in the last episode where he wanted to retire. 

Meanwhile, Trish prepares her campaign for District Attorney and must face events in her past before they find their way into the media spotlight. We've known Trish to be a straight arrow so far but you can be certain that there's something dark coming back to haunt her from the past — after all, everyone has a secret. 



 

This episode will pretty much be a deja vu for Cole. This season began with him carrying the guilt of a dead boy in Syria and, now, here we are with a father-daughter case. It would also be very personal to him since Maya, his 12-year-old, and him have just started bonding again. This episode may not feature Erica Malick at all and shift back the focus on Cole's personal storyline.

During the fight, Cole gets injured and ends up having flashbacks of his 18-year-old self, the synopsis reveals. The last time we saw a younger Cole was when he was being recruited by the CIA, and when he was just a boy, traveling with his photojournalist mom. It would definitely be interesting to see Cole's first steps into adulthood — it will also give us an insight into his character. Maggie Lawson and Paola Lazaro will appear as Natalie Flynn and Gutierrez respectively. 

Catch Cole and Murtaugh battle it out on 'Lethal Weapon's upcoming episode 13 'Coyote Ugly' on Tuesday, February 12 at 8 pm ET on Fox.
