MacGyver is feeling the Bishop Prison Blues.
In this week’s new episode of MacGyver, the secret ops agent receives perhaps his most dangerous task yet: going undercover as an inmate named Frank Morris into a prison that is “home to the worst of the worst.”
MacGyver’s mission is to break out El Noche, a notorious drug kingpin, and then follow him to his cartel’s secret location and dismantle it. But he’ll have even fewer tools at his disposal than usual — all he’ll have to break out of prison with is salt and batteries!
As we see in this exclusive sneak peek, Jack (George Eads) is posing as a guard and MacGyver manages to snatch a paper clip. But otherwise he won’t have much backup: “No comms, no gear, no Swiss army knife.” Can MacGyver survive this brutal place to get El Noche to the outside?
“It’s not easy in there,” Riley (Tristin Mays) frets.
MacGyver airs Fridays at 8 p.m. on CBS.
