Storyline

Mac and Pete are tying to apprehend an assassin who has a penchant for killing anyone who sees him. Mac poses as a man who sells timepieces which includes timers used for explosives. When the man shows up he tries to kill Mac, after he shows him the timers. Pete saves him and they go to the assassin's hotel and the man who hired him calls with instructions on how to pick up his latest assignment. Mac goes in his place and the man tells him he has arranged for the girl he needs. It seems the assassin uses call girls to get his assignments then kills them after. What Mac doesn't know is that the girl is the sister of the one he previously killed and asked to be placed with the man her sister was with so she can kill him. And some men are following them.

Macgyver is a action series and made part of my teenage years but when he was in risk situations and he escape in easy way is hard to believe,the ropes isn't so tight..he make fire using everything...unbelievable!!! this is why Macgyver is a success and opposite too,in this episode he is more normal and didn't have to fix up in sensational way...could be better this way but it won't be a real Macgyver so let's move off!!
