Ruler is the 17th episode of Season 1 in the remake version of MacGyver.


Bozer’s first overseas mission goes terribly wrong when MacGyver and the team are blamed for a terrorist bombing and The Phoenix Foundation is forced to disavow them. Using a ruler and coconut oil to make disguises, the team must avoid authorities and clear their names without any support from back home


The team travels to The Netherlands and during the mission become disavowed by The Phoenix Foundation after the fallout from a mission designed to entrap them to fail - a contingency being activated by Patricia Thornton under her codename: Chrysalis.





Jack Dalton: I knew a guy from the Farm who got disavowed. He ended up doing four years in a Chinese prison and still didn't get to go home. He ended up living in Shenzen working as one of those dudes who stand in line.
Riley Davis: Is that even a real job?
Jack Dalton: In Shenzen, it is.

Angus MacGyver: Well, it wouldn't be a mission if we weren't on an impossible timeline.
