Episode Guide
Can Opener



Can Opener is the 8th episode of Season 1 in the remake version of the MacGyver.


When MacGyver comes face to face with Murdoc, an international assassin hired to kill him, Mac must defend both himself and Bozer, armed with only a corkscrew and paper towel rolls. Also, Bozer feels completely betrayed when he finally learns Mac's true identity.


Mac and the team head to Latvia to capture Janis Lapa, the leader of a terrorist organization. However, Janis sends an S.O.S out to the other members, who chase Mac, Janis, and the team to Latvia's U.S. Embassy. The team must protect the embassy from the terrorists for six hours. Meanwhile, Bozer, still upset at MacGyver, is held at the Phoenix Foundation to be assessed by Thornton. After learning about Bozer's prosthetic-making abilities, Thornton allows Mac to give Bozer a job at The Phoenix Foundation, which Bozer accepts.





Wilt Bozer: Please tell me you got a gun, too!
MacGyver: I never use 'em.
Wilt Bozer: I'm gonna hang with you until this is over.

Nikki Carpenter: Despite what you may think, I don't want you dead.
MacGyver: I'm just gonna trust the other gun-toting psychopath on this one. I think you might know him 'cause you hired him to kill all my friends.
