  • Slow paced but impressive ending

    Macgyver falls for the ultimate femme fatale in this memorable episode. Of course, we can't blame him, who would suspect this stunning little beauty who he meets in an art class would be the bad guy? Millions of dollars are at stake if Macgyver and the Phoenix Foundation block a marina being built by their environmental survey. So the owner's hire the "negotiator" Deborah to drive Macgyver off the project. She begins with subtle methods, but ultimately is left with no choice but to kill Macgyver. Naturally, the episode starts a bit slow as Macgyver falls for Deborah, but it helps lead to a pretty climactic end where Macgyver, who is near helpless from flash blindness, is brought to an abandoned warehouse to be killed. The thunderstorm really sets the mood for this scene, which is one of the best endings in the series.
