New ‘MacGyver’ Clip Explores Jack’s Romantic Past (Exclusive Video)

Angus MacGyver is one smart secret agent, but even he can’t understand how Jack let the girl of his dreams slip away.

In this week’s episode, MacGyver (Lucas Till) and the team attempt to rescue Sarah (Amy Acker), Jack’s (George Eads) former CIA partner and ex-girlfriend who went missing in Venezuela after she obtained evidence to take down an international arms dealer.

In an exclusive clip of the episode obtained by TheWrap, Sarah takes them to the apartment where she has been hiding out. Before Jack and Mac head in, however, Mac grills Jack about why he can’t take his eyes off his former flame. Jack confesses that he still has feelings for Sarah, and that maybe this is his chance to get her back.
