    A must see for sci-fi lovers.

    Defenitely one of the darkest and most eerie episodes of the series. Macgyver is sent in to the wilderness to recover an organism which has mutated after falling back to earth. To his horror, Macgyver sees the organism has completely decimated any wildlife in the area. Working against time, as the whole area was ordered to be firestormed, Macgyver narrowly escapes and is able to make it out alive. The organism is brought back to an underground lab in the Phoenix West division where Pete and Mac encounter its creator, Dr. Milhouse. She is the very defention of a "mad scientist", who is able to see only the potential of her work while ignoring it's dangerous faults. The writers do a good job making it known this is here lifetime work, and we can she how it is possible for her to be so blinded by the facts.

    Soon the government orders the organism is to be destroyed, Milhouse reluctantly agrees, and all seems well. Or does it? The final 10 minutes are best not spoiled here but make it one of the better episodes in the season.moreless

    This is not your typical MacGyver episode, it pose a big ethic and moral issue. The scientist works on a culture to speed up harvest and gives vegetation the strength to grow in arrid and dry land as well as frozen land. She hopes this will help people in Africa to solve their malnutrition problem. However the satellite where she put the culture on falls back on earth, it kills all the animal life in the surroundings. MacGyver picks up the rest of the satellite and they found out she put her culture in without nobody noticing. Even though her culture is unstable and had transformed she still wants to continue on her research. Pete decides she has to destroy it for the good of everyone. She doesn't do it and her dog spills the culture and both contract the disease (speed up life at an astonishing rate), a few minutes later she's found dead (as an old woman) so is her dog. It really shows how sometimes scientists go too far to find a solution or a cure, their goal is good but the way to do it isn't.moreless
