Recap / The A Team S 2 E 6 When You Comin Back Range Rider Part II

Go To

Hannibal and Face barely escape with the evidence against Bus. The team continues the fight against Bus, despite the difficulty caused by having to avoid Colonel Decker simultaneously. Things get further complicated when their next strike against the train goes wrong, leaving most of the team captured by Bus. Can the heroic Range Rider save the day?

This episode contains examples of the following tropes:

  • The Cavalry: Discussed; the villain tells Hannibal that he shouldn't expect things to turn around as "there ain't no cavalry in this picture." However, he's wrong, as Murdock finds out what happened to his comrades and returns as the Range Rider to turn the tables on the bad guys.
  • Hand Gagging: Murdock puts his hand over Lane's mouth briefly when he sneaks up to rescue Hannibal. He lets go quickly once he's sure she isn't going to scream from surprise.
  • I Shall Taunt You: An implied example; Face comments that B.A. must be getting "weak" if he can't break the rope they're tied with. B.A. breaks them quickly afterwards.
  • Over-the-Shoulder Carry: Hannibal hoists Bus' niece, Lane Carter, over his shoulder when carrying her away so that Bus will let him and Face escape.
  • Papa Wolf: Carrying on from the last episode, it's demonstrated that Bus cares about and is very protective of his niece. When Hannibal kidnaps her during an escape attempt, he immediately sends his men out after her, and when he meets Hannibal again, he tells him that he's lucky he didn't harm her.

  • We Need a Distraction: Murdock enlists Lane's help when he comes to rescue Hannibal from her uncle, telling her to "count to five...and then scream for all you're worth." She runs toward them screaming about a fire in the barn, which gives Hannibal and Murdock enough time to get the upper hand.
