With that being said, though, we’re actually more worried about someone making it through the episode alive and quitting that we are with someone being killed off. Maybe this is the producers luring us into some sort of false sense of security, but we’re not going into the finale on constant death-watch. We already had that over the course of the hiatus with Samantha Cage.
Here’s what you need to be concerned about entering Friday night’s new episode: MacGyver is claiming that he no longer has trust in Matty Webber and as you would imagine, that’s dangerous. He doesn’t want to be a part of the Phoenix Foundation anymore. If he leaves the team, it’s hard to imagine the show ever being the same. Could he still do missions? Sure, but this is an ensemble show so much more than the original. It’s about MacGyver alongside the strength of the team around him. Maybe he can convince Bozer to join but on their own, who will give the two characters assignments? How will they know where to start?
The objective entering the finale needs to be really simple: Find a way to justify Matty’s secret while also establishing a way in which Mac’s father can enter the picture that doesn’t make him want to leave the team in order to explore that relationship further. In its own way, that is something else that also needs to be considered here.
Could anyone else leave?
Anything is possible — yet, it’s hard to justify it based on where we are right now in the story. While there is certainly some distrust over the Matty situation, the Phoenix Foundation also is a job for most of these people — how are they going to be able to put this on their resume if they go and work somewhere else in the future? That’s rather tricky to imagine.
