This video shows one more line in the Ba4 retreat (when coupled with Ng1) against the Fried Liver Attack. Ba4 is not a good retreat square for the Bishop, and, needless to say, moving one’s Knight four times only to get back to the starting square is not good either.

I left the last video a bit abruptly, and I received a comment about a line that I neglected to mention (thanks ebutym for your comment). I had made the mistake of simply accepting the computer’s recognition that the position was lost without looking at it in detail to understand why exactly it was lost. It was a lot of fun going through these lines, mostly because White is so utterly destroyed, so I figured I’d share this with you. In a couple of places, Black should pick the more precise attacking move, so it was helpful to look at the lines.
So, in the position below, Stockfish 7 recommends that White give up the queen (either by taking Black’s light-square Bishop or playing d4 to block Black’s dark-square battery). Ebutym’s comment was to play d3, so that the Queen could move to d2, where it could watch over f2. This is an interesting idea. Why do you think the computer recommends giving up the Queen rather than saving it? (the video below the image goes over the variations)
And here is the video with the lines:
