    Like most other KR episodes, this ending was a letdown. The beginning and middle of the stories were fine but the ending was so bogus. It always seems the writers run out of time, ideas or both. The bad guy always gives up at the end without a fight. Michael Knight approaches the bad guys with his beat up Studebaker. The evil woman sends the kidnapped kid and the evil bad guy in the Trans-AM to go after him. KITT at the last second is able to crack the code and eject the bad guy out of the car. Then Michael and the boy hop onto their car. They head for the evil lady and her associate. And what happens after that? Nothing.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The version of Pac-Man shown is for the Atari 5200. While KITT might've been able to handle that, Randy's computer would not have been able to display that game, and there was not a comparable quality home computer version in 1983.

    • Twice a computer override is used, once to steal KITT and once to disable the armored bus. Both instances, "override" is misspelled as "overide."

  • QUOTES (3)

    • KITT is inside the portable television set
      KITT: I used to be sleek, and black, and dashing, and now.... oh Michael, do I look just dreadful? Be honest!
      Michael: KITT, what matters to me is who you are, not what you look like. [...] You are a lot more than silicon chips and fancy circuitry. You're my buddy. You're my partner. KITT, you're one of a kind.
      KITT: Thank you, Michael. The feeling is mutual.

    • Michael: Adrienne is a regular black widow, and when she's through with [Randy], she's gonna kill him!

    • Michael: (to a now portable KITT) How you doin' down there? You okay?
      KITT: "How you doin' down there?" You're making me feel like a child.

  • NOTES (2)
