This was a decent episode. It seems like MacGyver can't have a personal life because of his commitment with the Phoenix Foundation. At least his job allows him to make friends and this time one is back and needs his help.
Sometimes people make bad decisions and this was an example. Jimmy couldn't stay under the radar and when his daughter was in danger he even had to betray MacGyver to try to save her. And the grandson.
Nice to see a baseball legend like Hank Aaron on the show. The MacGyverisms were not spectacular but they were okay. But at least that saved his life.
