Mixed Reviews of MacGyver episode 12 story
TV Fanatic described it as a jam-packed episode. Indeed, it had a wedding and a bank robbery. Moreover, there was talk of treason.
However, loyal fans of the series might miss the trademark MacGyverisms expected of the series. Nonetheless, Screwdriver was rather enjoyable to watch. Thornton as the alleged traitor within the Phoenix Foundation adds a twist to the story.
On the other hand, Carter Matt believes the show’s writers would likely have a hard time topping MacGyver episode 12.
What Happens After MacGyver Episode 12
According to Carter Matt, episode 13 titled Large Blade presents a number of opportunities for fans to learn more about their heroes. Apparently, the occasion will push the heroes into a difficult situation. However, it is one where MacGyver’s talent will likely shine through.
Based on the synopsis, MacGyver has the opportunity to save the day once again. This time around, his only tools would be a large blade and a water bottle. The escaped prisoner ran off with Jack’s gun after the helicopter crash. Regardless, the show’s hero does not need a gun to get out of a tricky situation.
MacGyver needs to ensure their safety and that of the injured pilot. At the same time, he needs to make sure to recapture the escaped prisoner. Moreover, keep him unharmed in order to face justice later on.
“On the way back from capturing a war criminal, Mac and Jack’s helicopter crashes in a remote area of Kazakhstan, injuring their pilot and allowing their prisoner to escape with Jack’s gun. Using a large blade and a water bottle, MacGyver must get help as the pilot’s condition worsens and before the war criminal takes them as prisoners.”
