“The White Knight” levels up — in far-off Dubai, no less! — in TVLine’s exclusive sneak peek at the opening minutes of Magnum P.I.‘s final run of episodes, which kicks off Wednesday, Oct. 4 at 9/8c on NBC.
In the exclusive clip above, a beautiful operative (played by Perdita Weeks) masterfully targets a mark, after which is extracted by two cohorts dressed as paramedics (Zachary Knighton and Stephen Hill). When the baddies catch wind of the subterfuge that is afoot, who rides to the rescue but a literal White Knight — as in the enigmatic Robin Masters’ literary hero (Jay Hernandez) — and with unexpectedly electrifying results.

Press play above to see what’s really going in, then be sure to re-watch those same three minutes (and the 39 or so that follow) when Magnum P.I. returns on Oct. 4.
What is Magnum P.I.‘s Season 5B premiere truly about? In the episode “Hit and Run,” Magnum and Higgins go to work for a dangerous and controversial client; Kumu (Amy Hill) and Shammy (Christopher Thornton) help move TC (who got shot in the Season 5A finale) to a veterans’ rehab facility; and Rick flirts with a woman who works at the marina.
In two subsequent episodes, Magnum and Higgins help a friend of Kumu’s who lost her life savings to a scammer, TC becomes increasingly frustrated at the lack of progress in his recovery, Magnum and Higgins enlist Katsumoto (Tim Kang) to go undercover when a chef at a high-end restaurant goes missing (Hernandez and Weeks teased this a small eternity ago), and Kumu’s work with Cade (Martin Martinez) at the Cultural Center delves into one of America’s darker chapters — the internment of Japanese Americans in the wake of Pearl Harbor.
Will you be tuning in for all of Magnum P.I.‘s final 10 episodes (and within seven days of airing), when they start rolling out Oct. 4?
