Storyline

Mac and Jack are about to be honored by an African President they helped. Pete is handling the event. Mac learns that Jack was found wondering around and has no idea of what he's doing. Mac has him checked out and learns that he may have been brainwashed but what for and how to get him out of it. They don't know that the Vice President and his wife are the ones behind the whole thing. They want him to assassinate the President. And try to make sure Mac doesn't interfere.

Goofs

At the beginning of the episode, MacGyver says, "Miss Hendrix. Very efficient." In the next shot, we see the helicopter approaching against a backdrop of buildings that include a Royal Bank building (the tall building with the blue-and-gold logo; we just see a glimpse of it). The Royal Bank (RBC) operates its branches mainly in Canada, and has an American division that operates branches only in the eastern USA. A previous episode (#2.21) establishes the Phoenix Foundation to be located in Los Angeles; currently the closest American RBC branches to LA are in Alabama. See more »
