Episode cast overview:
Tim Rossovich ...


Mac is home after surviving three murder attempts while he found proof in Central America about dealer Fernando Marin's part in the U.S. cocaine market, only to be forced at machete-point to bring another accomplice to the Phoenix Foundation- oops, that's just Jack Dalton 'inviting' him to a surprise birthday party, the rare guests like grandpa and Penny are his presents. They and some objects remind Mac of foreign adventures he had the last seven years around the world. Now Mac tells Pete at fifty he's too old enough to rely on luck and announces his resignation, so he can start having a private life rather then run away from every potential love. Is his mind really set? Written by KGF Vissers

Pete says he was thinking about the first assignment he ever gave MacGyver, and references part of an episode from the first season, but it's been previously established that MacGyver met Pete seven years ago and started working for the Phoenix Foundation shortly thereafter and that he and Pete had been on a number of wild assignments all over the world in those seven years. And it was clear MacGyver was seasoned by then. See more »
