MacGyver: (S01E09) “Chisel”


This episode picks up where the last one left off with Bozer still angry from finding out about MacGyver’s secret life. He has to go through a background check to determine if he is a security threat. This, as you might imagine, makes him even angrier. 

A simple snatch and grab…of a person…becomes more complicated than expected, as usual. As they were grabbing the guy he sent out an SOS over his phone to all of his contacts. 

Running from the bad guys leads them to the American embassy where they almost get shot because the guards don’t believe they’re Americans. Saved by a phone call from the director, just in time. They got in but then the bad guys decided to attack the embassy. While this is happening Bozer was  given the chance to watch the director work while she tries to help her team. 

They do all that they can to hold down the fort because help was several hours away. After the Marines run out of ammunition MacGyver works his science to make explosives. The explosives appear to work but they soon find out that that’s only because the bad guys have reinforcements coming. They’re reinforcements are due in a whole hour before the team’s help would alive. That’s when MacGyver has his hail Mary science idea. He lured them into a trap with an explosive in it and traps them there, while having everyone inside of the embassy leave.  

Back of home, Bozer gets a job at the foundation in its lab!

Buss laugh moment of this episode: The background check for Bozer is more thorough that he realized. They went through his apartment. When he was given this information he was like…I guess you know the secret now…I go briefs…never boxers…and sometimes commando. LOL The look on his face and the director’s face when he said that. 

Punched in the feels moment of this episode:   n/a

Made me ponder for a sec moment of this episode:  MacGyver making physics calculations in the middle of a gun fight made me wonder whether or not I should have paid more attention in physics because I do not know what formulas he used. 

Solid episode.
