Lidar + Rouges + Duty is the 16th episode of Season 3 in the remake version of MacGyver.

Plot Edit

The Phoenix must recover the body of a pilot whose plane crashed while testing an experimental laser mapping system that MacGyver designed. Also, Riley tries to identify the hacker who tricked a SWAT team into arresting her and Elwood.

Notes Edit

  • LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) is a camera that uses lasers. It can be mounted on an airplane and get detailed three dimensional images of everything below, even through dense tree canopy.
  • Desi puts her hand to her right ear when listening to the radio patch-in through her comm. Later on, she does the same to her left ear when talking to Phoenix.
  • One of the terms of Riley's parole is that she is not allowed to access a computer. Even though the SWATing was for a wrong reason, she was actually violating her probation by helping her father and would have been sent back to prison. Matty would not have been able to get her out without blowing her cover.
