‘MacGyver’ Episode Guide (Oct. 14): MacGyver and Jack Travel to Russia

“Wire Cutter” (10/14/16) – Mac and Jack partner with older versions of themselves, a Russian bomb programmer and his estranged handler, to shut down a Soviet-era warhead in Moscow.

But when the antiquated computer needed to disable the warhead becomes inoperable, Mac must find a way to fix it with only duct tape and wire in time to prevent a new Cold War, on “MacGyver,” Friday, Oct. 14 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Guest starring in this episode are Aina Dumlao (Andie Lee), Elya Baskin (Alexander Orlov), Olex Krupka (Victor Levkin), Yorgo Constantine (Sevchenko), Selena Anduze (Agent Bannister), Bianca Malinoswki (Penny Parker), Angela M. Davis (Staff Member), Andre Pushkin (Big Spetsnaz), and Serdar Kalsin (Lead Guard).

“Wire Cutter” was written by John Turman and directed by Joe Dante.

“MacGyver,” a reimagining of the classic series, is an action-adventure drama about 20-something Angus “Mac” MacGyver, who creates a clandestine organization within the U.S. government where he uses his extraordinary talent for unconventional problem solving and vast scientific knowledge to save lives.

Joining his team on high-risk missions around the globe is maverick former CIA agent Jack Dalton and Patricia Thornton, ex-field agent turned director of operations and Riley Davis, an unpredictable computer hacker with a chip on her shoulder. At home, MacGyver is entertained by his ambitious roommate, Wilt Bozer. Under the aegis of the Department of External Services, MacGyver takes on the responsibility of saving the world, armed to the teeth with resourcefulness and little more than bubble gum and a paper clip.

“MacGyver” stars Lucas Till (Angus “Mac” MacGyver), George Eads (Jack Dalton), Sandrine Holt (Patricia Thornton), Justin Hires (Wilt Bozer), and Tristin Mays (Riley Davis).

“MacGyver” is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Lionsgate. It is executive produced by Peter Lenkov, Craig O’Neill, James Wan, Henry Winkler, Lee Zlotoff and Michael Clear.
