More Riggs and Palmer moments are on the way. "Lethal Weapon" season 1, episode 16 spoilers revealed the two are spending more time together. Meanwhile, Riggs and Murtaugh will investigate a murder involving a high school football phenomenon.
In "Lethal Weapon" season 1, episode 15 titled "As Good As It Getz," Riggs (Clayne Crawford) and Murtaugh (Damon Wayans) enlists the help of DEA Agent Karen Palmer (Hilarie Burton) to protect an attorney, Leo Getz (guest star Thomas Lennon), who was an important asset to a drug cartel case. Riggs' interaction with her changed his view of Palmer and some fans are pairing the two together.
The official synopsis for "Lethal Weapon" season 1, episode 16 via Spoiler TV revealed the two will be spending more time together and Riggs will contemplate on a big shift in his life in the future. Maybe, he can finally move on? Palmer was introduced in episode 7 where she investigated the murder of a fashion expeditor. Fans are hoping Palmer can help Riggs recover from the death of his wife and unborn child.
However, it seems like viewers will have to wait for more time for the Riggs and Palmer ship to sail. The promo for episode 16 featured Riggs introducing a young girl named Jenna (Chin Yere) to his partner. She is a college engineering student so she might be connected to the case but that hand on her shoulder and his flirty attitude say otherwise.
Riggs and Murtaugh are set to investigate a murder which involves a high school football phenomenon in episode 16. The case is further connected to the corrupt world of college athlete recruitment. The promo also shows Murtaugh following Jesse Raines (Chris Tavarez) -- probably a football player -- who is having a fun night at a bar. The scene then shifted to the two getting in a car accident.
"Lethal Weapon" season 1, episode 16 titled "Unnecessary Roughness" will air on Wednesday, Feb. 22, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
