Lethal Luau Recap

Al and Tom arrive, and an enraged Al attacks the killer. He dodges Al's attack and sends him flying into the sofa, then knocks out Tom and leaves. Al promises Mike that he'll get the ninja next time, while Talbot peers out of the bedroom. He points out that he has a dinner with the governor that night, and Mike assures him that he won't have to cancel it because they're going to set a trap.

That night at the dinner, Tom is undercover as a waitress. Mike and Al are on stage posing as band members, and perform "Tiny Bubbles". Meanwhile, the ninja sneaks into the kitchen and hides on a cart. Tom wheels him out to Talbot's table.

Mike continues singing to the older women until Al gets carries away with his drum accompaniment. Tom arrives at Talbot's table and the ninja leaps out and attacks Tom. Mike finally gets Al's attention, and Al takes down the killer. A bruised-up Tom drags himself to the ER. Talbot thanks Mike and his men, but Mike figure that it's not over. The senator tells Mike to do his investigation for him and leaves, and Mike tells Al to do the paperwork while he deals with the ladies.
