McAllister and Joshua capture Riggs, Murtaugh and Rianne. Riggs and Murtaugh are being tortured but Riggs kills his captor and helps Murtaugh and Rianne escape. McAllister and Joshua get away. While Riggs chases Joshua, Murtaugh goes after McAllister. While driving away, McAllister is blindsided by a bus and a fire starts in his car, burning the heroin and getting dangerously close to the grenades nearby. McAllister meets his doom when the grenades explode. Meanwhile, Riggs intercepts Joshua at Murtaugh's house, where we presume Joshua was going to kidnap/kill the rest of Murtaugh's family. Riggs challenges Joshua to hand-to-hand combat on Murtaugh's lawn just as he arrives, with all the other cops watching. Riggs beats Joshua, who pulls a gun as he is carried off. Riggs and Murtaugh kill him. Riggs and Murtaugh are now best friends for life.

Lethal Weapon mistake picture

Revealing mistake: Riggs handcuffs himself to the depressed businessman. They jump off the building but they're not handcuffed to each other anymore. They used plastic cuffs which could separate during the stunt in case anything went wrong. They break just as they jump, so they grab each other's hands to stay in contact. After they land the cuffs are attached again. (00:31:00)
