MacGyver season 2 episode 7 preview: ‘Duct Tape + Jack’ = fun?

MacGyver season 2 episode 7There is something inherently likable about MacGyver season 2 episode 7 right from the jump, and it probably has to do with the episode title. It’s hard not to enjoy an installment of TV entitled “Duct Tape + Jack” for pretty obvious reasons. This is, (for the record) a rare occasion of MacGyver actually referencing a character in one of their titles. It also is a fun bit of shade directed at Jack and his inability to shut up … even when it would be to the benefit of the team for him to do so.

In continuing the recent trend with this show, this upcoming episode is taking the Phoenix Foundation crew overseas, where they are taking on a threat that could have international ramifications. This time around, it involves the team doing their part to ensure that a top politician in Ecuador is able to continue their campaign rather than fall victim to a plot from rebel forces. It almost feels like we are getting one part rescue mission and one part medical drama given some of the high stakes here.

For a little more insight, be sure to take a look at the MacGyver season 2 episode 7 synopsis that CarterMatt has for you below:

“Duct Tape + Jack” – MacGyver uses a heater and tabasco sauce to help a key presidential candidate in Ecuador receive a heart transplant he desperately needs after a rebel group tries to sabotage delivery of the organ, on MACGYVER, Friday, Nov. 10 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

We love the photo for this episode, mostly because it looks like one of those old-fashioned face-off posters that you would see before diving into a wrestling pay-per-view. This episode itself should be right in the vein of what you want to see with this show, though it doesn’t quite give you any details beyond that. Eventually, it would be nice to see some significant forward movement on one of the big character plot lines for the season, including the quest for Mac to find his father. Our current hope is for news on that subject before we get around to seeing the winter finale but in the mean time… a heater and some tabasco sauce???? This is something we can’t wait to see unfold.
