From getting hands-on DOD intel to catching up with the CODEX leader Leland, there is a lot that has been happening in MacGyver lately. Developed by Peter M. Lenkov, MacGyver is a reboot of the ABC series of the same name. It stars Lucas Till as Angus “Mac” MacGyver. The series follows him fighting crime in his own way using clever methods of engineering. MacGyver has overall completed 4 seasons. It’s currently on its on-going fifth season, covering 9 episodes so far, along with an upcoming 10th and 11th episode in the season. The show is part of the same universe as the rebooted shows, which include the Hawaii Five-0 and Magnum. P.I.
MacGyver follows the story of Angus “Mac” MacGyver, who works at a secret U.S. government organization. Instead of fighting crime with combat, Mac uses his intellectual skills and excellently trained mind to breakdown cases and catch the criminals. So, here we are taking a look at what happened in MacGyver previously and what we can expect from the upcoming 10th episode of its fifth season.
MacGyver Season 5: Plot So Far
So previously on MacGyver, team Phoneix was visited by Jerry Ortega, the former member from the Hawaii Five-0. Ortega revealed that he was approached by a few recruitment efforts from CODEX. So he thought he could be helpful to them. But before they start working, Mac and Desi get pulled out of the case by Matty.
Matty has quite a personal case in her hands involving her friend who was also a mentor to her and was a cold war hero. She revealed a strange illness that is spreading among the staff. On the other hand, Ortega receives information about a bombing request from CODEX. Team Phoenix breaks down the situation and comes to the conclusion that Jerry should be sent as a bomb maker.
The Phoenix team arrange a meet between Jerry and CODEX regarding the bomb. Their plan works successfully, and the team is able to capture four members of CODEX. Jerry, in the process, is able to retrieve a flash drive he stole from one of the CODEX members. After checking out the drive, Jerry and the team realizes that CODEX’s recruitment process is spread around the world and linked to places more than they thought.
