      The Phoenix Under Siege episode of MacGyver is another good episode. It’s the return of Harry Jackson, MacGyver’s grandfather, as played by the talented John Anderson. It’s a special anniversary for the two, though not a pleasant one. It seems the two are planning to attend a professional hockey game together for the first time. It’s not the hockey game that’s important, it’s the being together on

      the anniversary of the death of Harry’s wife and MacGyver’s father.

      Flashbacks fill the show, either from Mac reflecting or Harry thinking back about that painful and stormy night when Mac’s father lost control of his car, resulting in an accident that killed him and his mother-in-law. These are all poignant and tender scenes, helping the audience to feel the loss and pain of the deaths.

      • the game in Pete’s office, so he and Harry go to the Phoenix Foundation, and that’s where things go south. A hired contractor is there to sabotage the Foundation, but when she meets MacGyver, she realizes she has a gold mine on her hands. She contacts her employer and makes arrangements to kill Mac for $100,000.

        Now it’s up to Mac and Harry to survive the clutches of the hit

        woman and her henchmen. There’s actually a neat scene where she fights Mac with karate or some martial art, only she gets a little carried away and jumps her way into a nasty end.

        The last scene is really well done and shows how far Mac and Harry have come since we first met Harry towards the end of season one. It’s a happy moment, and that’s always nice to see.
