  • MacGyver is in the middle of moving house and Pete would like him to protect a Russian defector, Mac doesn't want any part of it. Mac's friend's wife is the mole and influences him to kill Mac and the Russian defector as they know too much...

    I personally think this episode is pretty average, the ending is very weak and rushed in my opinion.

    The opening gambit had some action, with some good stunts as MacGyver fixes a car while it's driving - no brakes!. A bullet hits the brakeline and fluid is rushing out, MacGyver suggests that he can pump some of the power steering fluid in the brake cylinder - viola, we have brakes.

    MacGyver's quick thinking was also good as he grabs two metal candlestick holders and wraps some microphone wire around them, also cutting some rubber matting to not get himself electricuted. He jump starts his friends heart - brilliant.

    Overall, the storyline was pretty average and thought it was a little rushed.
