Passages is the 21st episode of Season 5 in the original version of MacGyver.


While in a coma resulting from a great fall, MacGyver has a near-death experience, where he is reunited with his grandfather Harry and his long-deceased parents.

Goofs Edit

Mac starts to descend on the davit before Harry operates the winch to reel him down.

As he's hanging over the side of the ship, MacGyver's level varies up and down between shots.

Mac is let down over the side of the ship much faster than the davit-winch could reel him down.
