MacGyver is tasked to go undercover as an inmate in a maximum security prison to break out El Noche, a notorious drug kingpin, using only batteries and salt, and track him to his cartel’s secret location and dismantle it.
The leader of a Mexican drug cartel, Joaquin "El Noche" Sancola, is kept in a prison in Texas. However, as a result, other members of the cartel have taken over and have started to cause violence in public. Mac is sent to the prison as a convict and must break El Noche out in order to find the cartel's hideout. However, he must do it with little help, as Jack has been reassigned to guard another part of the prison and Riley can't hack the prison doors.
MacGyver: One other fun fact about hydrogen. It's lighter than air. That's what kept the Hindenberg up in the sky... Until it didn't.
Jack Dalton: What is this guy, like, an Olympic sprinter or something?
MacGyver: Yeah, didn't you read his file, Jack? Special skills include stealing top-secret information with his phone and the 100-meter dash.
Jack Dalton: Yeah, I hear the sarcasm, I'm just too tired to appreciate.
