Riggs (Clayne Crawford) finds himself at crossroads in next week’s episode of “Lethal Weapon.”

According to the synopsis for Season 1, episode 16, Riggs ponders a huge change in his personal life, as he continues to spend more time with Palmer (Hilarie Burton). Does this mean that Riggs is thinking of bringing his relationship with the DEA agent to the next level?

In this week’s episode 15, Riggs and Palmer grew closer to one another as they teamed up for the investigation of a shootout related to the Flores drug cartel. Riggs’ affection for Palmer couldn’t be more obvious in the episode, as he bought her Chinese food, accompanied her during an all-nighter and saved her from a helicopter. And it seems that Palmer feels the same way about Riggs. As a matter of fact, Scorsese (Johnathan Fernandez) caught the two sharing a kiss in the elevator at the end of the episode.

Apparently, Riggs is not the only one who is thinking about his future. In next week’s episode, his partner Murtaugh (Damon Wayans) also considers a big change in his professional life. Is he considering applying for a more high-paying job after Trish (Keesha Sharp) resigned from her work at the law firm? Only time will tell.

As for the case of the week for the upcoming episode, Riggs and Murtaugh investigate the murder of a high school football phenomenon, which forces them to dive into the lucrative and corrupt world of college recruiting.

In addition to Burton, other guest stars in the episode includes Michele Mitchenor, Chris Tavarez, Joyful Drake, Robert Curtis Brown, Robert Arce, Michael J. Harney, Chin Yere, James Black and David Klency.
