The security agents hired to protect the high-risk political leaders are sharpening their skills at Marc Redmond's Vanguard School. Michael goes in undercover as an agent trainee, to penetrate the operation and determine which of the participants is the potential killer. When one of the agents - who happens to be a beautiful young woman - feeds him some misinformation, designed to throw him off the track, Michael almost closes the case prematurely. But at the last minute, he learns that all the would-be agents are involved in the plot. Jeopardizing his own safety, Michael harnesses all of K.I.T.T.'s powers to go after them, and in a spectacular chase finally diverts the assassination attempt.
