Synopsis Edit

Using a necklace and a microwave transmitter, Mac and the team attempt to locate Riley after her first solo mission with a group of dangerous hackers goes off the rails.

Plot Edit

Riley hesitates when she holds someone at gunpoint, causing a thief to escape with a portable EMP device. Jack takes the blame for it, but gets worried when Riley has to go on a solo operation involving a group of hackers known as Bedlam. While Riley tries to slow Bedlam down, Mac and Cage work on saving the US Secretary of Defense, whose pacemaker has been hacked.

Notes Edit

Deaths [3] [4]


Wilt Bozer: That dude isn’t crazy enough to set off an EMP on a plane while he’s still on the plane... is he? That would shut down the engines!
Terrorist: (sets off the EMP)
Wilt Bozer: Oh. He's exactly that crazy!

Jack Dalton: Did he just take the last parachute?!
Angus MacGyver: Yeah. And I just sent out a cargo crate with all the stuff I need to make more.

Jack Dalton: I remember the first time I had to kill somebody. It stays with you. It’s not something you easily forget.

Jack Dalton: She is not ready for a solo mission!
Matilda Webber: I thought you said what happened on the plane was your fault, Jack.
Jack Dalton: Oh yeah, what I said about the place... Yeah it was totally my fault. There.
Angus MacGyver: And mine. I helped. Un-helped.
Matilda Webber: You know I doc your pay every time you lie to me?!
Angus MacGyver: (looks surprised)
Jack Dalton: When we start doing that?

Samantha Cage: Are you sure this is going to work?
Angus MacGyver: I’m never that sure.

Secretary of Defense: This is kidnapping!...And treason!
Angus MacGyver: Actually treason require intent to aid the enemy so-
Samantha Cage: Mac you're not helping.

Jack Dalton: Brother if you can fix dead, we’re in the wrong business.

Angus MacGyver: If you're gonna do it, do it in style.

Riley Davis: To be fair. I ever really wanted to take any of your advice, so...

Matilda Webber: And now the Phoenix has a very powerful ally at the department of Defense.
Angus MacGyver: And all we have to do is kidnap the guy and nearly kill him.
