Murtaugh is about to reveal just how much he cares for Riggs on “Lethal Weapon.”

At the end of the Fox show's Season 1 finale, Riggs (Clayne Crawford) jetted off for Mexico to hunt down Tito Flores (Danny Mora) and avenge the murder of his wife, Miranda (Floriana Lima). Knowing that he needed to be there for his partner, Murtaugh (Damon Wayans) followed Riggs across the border to either stop him or help him with his plan. Whichever the case is, Murtaugh’s decision to chase after Riggs shows that he deeply cares for the troubled cop — a sentiment that Murtaugh will finally verbalize in Season 2.

According to TV Guide, Murtaugh — in a moment of passion — will tell Riggs that he loves him. While viewers have to tune in to the new season to find out Riggs’ response, the news outlet reported that his reaction will result in a little confrontation between the two and will mark a turning point for the pair’s relationship.

“We get to play how [Riggs’ response] affects their relationship moving forward,” executive producer Matt Miller said.

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.”

While major plot details about Season 2 — including the outcome of Riggs’ mission in Mexico — are being kept under wraps, Miller revealed last March that they actually have plans to reboot the series in its sophomore run.

“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 told Yahoo TV. “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.
