While Pete's wife Connie, an archaeologist, and their adolescent son Michael, who resents his absentee father, are on a dig in Louisiana, they are kidnapped by the men of mercenary Frank Bonner, a former agency colleague of Pete's, whom he wrongfully blames for the death of the Bonner family in a Yemeni tribal pacification mission which went wrong after Frank embezzled agency funds. Though his accusations against Pete are false, Bonner is planning a gruesome revenge: make Pete watch his own loved-ones die. MacGyver flies ahead so that he can bug the gang's car at the meeting point. Even as they change vehicles, Mac works out where they are going, and sees through the lies of confederate-merc Obadiah Moss, whom they had planted as a redneck fisherman to point Mac into the bayou. Mac uses diversions and trickery so that he can make a surprising entry, frees Michael, and together with him, returns for Mike's parents, pulling Macgyverisms all the time. Written by
