From getting direct DOD intel to catching up with CODEX leader Leland, there’s been a lot going on at MacGyver lately. Developed by Peter M. Lenkov, MacGyver is a reboot of the ABC series of the same name. It stars Lucas Till as Angus “Mac” MacGyver. The series follows him to fight crime on his own terms using clever engineering methods. MacGyver as a whole has completed 4 seasons. It is currently in its fifth ongoing season, spanning 9 episodes so far, along with the 10th and 11th episodes that will be coming later this season. The shows are part of the same universe as rebooted shows, including the Hawaii Five-0 and Magnum. PI
MacGyver follows the story of Angus “Mac” MacGyver, who works for a secret US government organization. Instead of fighting crime with combat, Mac uses his intellectual skills and his highly trained mind to solve cases and catch criminals. So, here we take a look at what happened in MacGyver before and what we can expect from the upcoming 10th episode of the fifth season.
MacGyver Season 5: The Plot So Far
So previously at MacGyver, the Phoneix team was visited by Jerry Ortega, a former member of the Hawaii Five-0. Ortega revealed that he was approached by several recruitment attempts from CODEX. So he thought he could help them. But before they get to work, Mac and Desi are pulled out of the case by Matty.
Matty has a fairly private case on his hands that involves his friend who is also his mentor and is a cold war hero. He revealed a strange disease that was spreading among the staff. On the other hand, Ortega received information about the bombing request from CODEX. The Phoenix team resolves the situation and comes to the conclusion that Jerry should be sent as a bomb maker.
The Phoenix Team arranges a meeting between Jerry and CODEX regarding the bomb. Their plan worked out successfully, and the team was able to capture four CODEX members. Jerry, in the process, was able to retrieve the flash drive he had stolen from one of the CODEX members. After inspecting the drive, Jerry and his team realized that the CODEX recruiting process was spread across the globe and connected to places more than they thought.
