Murtaugh tells Riggs how much he cares about him in a new preview clip for Season 2 of Fox’s “Lethal Weapon.”

The minute-long video starts with Riggs (Clayne Crawford) talking to someone about Murtaugh (Damon Wayans). “[He’s a] good guy. Worse part, he’s way too emotional,” Riggs says of Murtaugh.

Soon after, fans are reminded of how Murtaugh could be sentimental at times. “Rick! I love you, man,” shrieks Murtaugh as he stops his partner from shooting Tito Flores (Danny Mora) in the head.

“Did you say you love me?” asks the troubled cop.

“Yeah,” the father of three confirms. “Isn’t this something that you want to say back to me?”

Riggs says “yeah,” but before he can complete his response, one of Tito Flores’ henchmen suddenly shows up, ending the partners’ heart-to-heart conversation abruptly.

TV Guide reported that the touching confrontation between Riggs and Murtaugh will mark a turning point for the duo. “We get to play how [Riggs' response] affects their relationship moving forward,” showrunner Matt Miller told the news outlet.

Season 2 picks up a few weeks after the events in the Season 1 finale, and both Riggs and Murtaugh haven’t really accomplished their respective objectives in Mexico yet.

“[Riggs] has been following Tito Flores down there and [is] basically harassing him, leaving him voicemails, text messages — like he’s been a complete lunatic,” Miller told TV Guide. “He’s been biding his time and waiting for the right moment, where he wanted to enact his revenge. Murtaugh, [meanwhile, has] been down in Mexico this whole time trying to find him and following Tito Flores places hoping he finds Riggs.”

Apparently, those weeks have led to a very expensive Mexican trip for Murtaugh. Miller said (via Deadline) at the Television Critics Association summer press tour earlier this month that Murtaugh has actually “racked up a credit card bill his wife is not too happy about.”

In an interview with Yahoo TV last March, Miller said that they planned to reboot the series next season. “The idea is to reboot the series in Season 2 by giving some resolution to what went down in Mexico in a way that feels satisfying, without necessarily having to do a serialized couple of episodes,” Miller said at the time. “We have a new mythology that we’re going to be introducing; the cartel will still be alive in Season 2, but they’re not going to be a focal point. We’re using them as a layer and building on top of it.”

“Lethal Weapon” Season 2 premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 26 at 8 p.m. EDT on Fox.
