The A-Team “Wheel of Fortune” (part 2 of 2)

B.A. approaches the store and decides to make as big an entrance as he can, driving Mega Van right through the front window display. He shoots up the place a bit, and is taken to a closet where Face is being held.

Face greets B.A. with, “I thought that was you at the door!” After B.A. asks where Murdock is, we find him, along with Joshua and Jeremy, as they make their way across a desert landscape. They find a guard shack, and scope out three guys just standing around in military uniforms.

Another guy brings some gear out from under a bush, and Joshua exposits that the only way to get out alive is to fly out. Murdock chuckles and remarks, “And to think I could be in Hawaii.” Meanwhile, Joshua gets changed into a military uniform.

Joshua overpowers the guards, and the other three rush in, quickly finding the helicopter. Sorry, folks, nothing overly cool here. It’s just a helicopter. Airwolf could outgun it, Blue Thunder could outpace it, and that funky car from Black Moon Rising easily outclasses it. A shootout ensues, with explosions and tons of bullets fired with nobody getting hit. In other words, par for the course for this show.

After one last soldier is dispatched in a kung fu fight with Jeremy, the remaining enemy guys are rounded up by Murdock and Company. Murdock eyes one of the soldier’s radios warily before proceeding with the escape. Once they’re in the air, Murdock compliments the way the chopper handles, and Jeremy takes the opportunity to test the weapon system, blowing up a warehouse.

After flying around a bit more, the other shoe finally drops. Murdock realizes that rather than flying around in a foreign country we probably don’t have an extradition treaty with, he’s actually been in the Nevada desert the entire time, and is now approaching Las Vegas. He glares at Joshua, and we go to break.
