'Lethal Weapon' Season 3, Episode 12: Murtaugh finds out he may not be as good as he used to be in 'The Roger and Me'
'The Roger and Me' could potentially be the most important episode of the season - Trish wants to run for public office and Murtaugh has an epiphany.
'Lethal Weapon's next episode could potentially be the turning point for this season, which is speculated to be the last. You know what that means right? It means that there will be some major shakeups in terms of character development and story. So what is the prediction for 'The Roger and Me'? Well, for starters, Murtaugh has an epiphany.
Episode 12 will take us through a murder investigation of an underground MMA fighter who died under mysterious circumstances. Cole and Murtaugh are back together this time unlike 'Dial M for Murtaugh'. Now Murtaugh, who has complained about being too old for the job since season 1 suddenly realizes that he may not be as good as he once was, for real. He was a pretty sharp fighter back in the day, but his moves are getting slow and old. Now we all know how annoying Murtaugh is when he gets insecure so it is possible that we will have a lot of unnecessary snapping and petty behavior on his part. He has always found a way to get over it at the end of each episode, so he probably will this time too. However, we know that Damon Wayans, who plays Roger Murtaugh on the show had announced last year that he would be quitting the show after this season - so it's possible that this is the time that he realizes that he must move on to other things.
As for Trish, she decides that she wants to try running for the public office. Now, Trish has always been the woman who's kept away from running for the government side of the law and has made money off private clients. She was extremely happy with it too but it is possible that her heart changed because of the cases she's been taking up recently. Especially in 'There Will Be Bud', she stumbled on to a case with Leo Getz and she did look pretty pleased in the end since justice was served. It would be a huge deal if Trish does decide to run for public office - she's a badass lawyer who would definitely make a difference.
As for our boy Cole, he's trying to keep things cool and casual with Erica but unfortunately, it doesn't go well - Maya seems to react to the wedding in a bad way, the synopsis reveals. We don't know if she's sad for her dad being alone because her mum Natalie is finally getting married to Andrew or she sees right through Cole's pretense and wants them to get together. We know there are undeniable sparks there. This episode could potentially pave the way for a romantic relationship between the two characters. Does anyone else feel like 'Lethal Weapon' is tying up all its loose ends? We'll have to wait and see.
'The Roger and Me' airs on Tuesday, January 15 at 8pm ET/PT on FOX.
