  • A masterful episode.

    The last episode of season one is also the best of season one. While most of Macgyver's adversaries were poorly cast, hollow, or just dumb characters (Axminster...), Peidra was a formidable opponent that was able to match Mac in just about every way. The opening scene really gets the episode off on the right with a great sequence in the shop as Peidra uses a kid to disguise his identity. After this the plot takes an interesting twist as Macgyver plays the assassin's role in order to find who is behind the hit. The subplot of Terry also wanting to avenge her sister adds another element Mac must deal with. Some fans may have a problem that Macgyver didn't really invent anything to help him in this episode, but it is so well written and paced I think most can look past it.
