  • Kristian Alfonso is back for revenge, but there is little else to like about this episode.

    You could probably sum this episode up best with "what could have been". First off, its a flashback episode, which more often than not are just made to be filler episodes. The previous three season finales have all been high quality productions, but this one feels tired, rushed, and low budget. What the episode does have going for it is Kristian Alfonso, who is arguably Macgyver's most memorable female adversary as Deborah from the Negotiator episode. However, as stated, half the show is dedicated to flashbacks either showing Jack's treasure hunting follies or previous villians who may have it out for Macgyver. The whole premise of the episode of Deborah wanting to just "look Macgyver in the eye" before shooting him is not enough to fill a half hour let alone one hour. Her appearance is wasted, and a sign to wise viewers that future Macgyver episodes will have some weak storylines.
