So.... that was the finale?
23 March 2017 | by slackersmomSee all my reviews

This was a thoroughly mediocre episode. It includes the return of a character we met in a previous episode, and, according to the credits, "introducing" an actor that I'm sure nobody had ever heard of at the time. So that "introduction" alone means something is going on with this episode. Anyway, as I said, the storyline was the epitome of 'meh,' and the only item of note was the introduction of-- surprise!!--MacGyver's grown son.

Yeah, it was pretty weird. Almost like the Powers That Be found out halfway through filming that this was going to be the finale, so a quick rewrite and bing-bam-boom, we have Mac Junior, and a heartwarming connection for our lone-wolf hero.

The best part of this was the final scene, which actually was kind of fitting for MacGyver, as he literally rides off into the distance on a carefree road trip. (However, as wonderful as it was to see RDA in leather (!!) on a motorcycle, I think his jeep would have been more eco-friendly in the long run.)

In any case, I can think of a dozen other ways this series should have ended, rather than with a nothing of an episode, and the addition of a surprise offspring. (Although I have to say that him discovering he has a son is a lot better than him rediscovering an old love, or going off with a new one--like that German woman, Maria.)

Also loved the voice-over by RDA thanking the show's fans for their loyalty and support. Nice!! <3
