Now that Detective Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford) is back from Mexico after bringing down the Flores drug cartel, is it safe to say he and DEA agent Karen Palmer (Hilarie Burton) can resume their romance on Tuesday’s Lethal Weapon?

Not so fast, partner!

As is evident from this clip from tonight’s new episode, it’s the first time Riggs and Palmer have met up since his Mexico return, but it seems her job responsibilities with the DEA have been stripped down to menial tasks. Is Riggs to blame because his going rogue at the end of last season had to do with information she gave him about the murder of his wife?

You’ll have to tune into the episode for the full story and to see where things go with Riggs and Palmer, but their relationship is very compelling to watch so we can only hope they get back on the romance track.
