Beginning 5 minutes before the end of the previous issue, we see Katherine trying to get all of her A.I. program files while the gunfight between Michael, Tabitha and the masked gunmen rages on above her. She loses all but one of her discs which she uploads into the car, and K.I.T.T. comes alive, just in time to rescue Michael and Tabitha, who are understandably surprised at the sight of this talking car. With the two of them strapped in, K.I.T.T. takes off in the direction of the gunmen. The FLAG network comes back online, and Michael and Tabitha are given orders to abandon pursuit of the abductors and get the car to safety, but K.I.T.T. turns off the broadcast and continues its plan to rescue Katherine, whom K.I.T.T. repeatedly refers to as “my mother.” Michael and Tabitha have no choice other than to go along with the plan, despite their obvious unease at the idea that this car is now thinking for itself. There’s a high speed chase, with a lot more gunfire, and it ends with K.I.T.T. skidding off the road and tumbling over a mountain…with Michael still inside it.
Another solid action-packed issue from the creative team of Thorne and Johnson, which I continue to enjoy, especially now that K.I.T.T. is in on the action. Although I do hope that the backstory behind these characters and the organization they work for starts to get filled in a bit more quickly that it has up to this point.
