ORIGINAL AIRDATE: September 23rd, 2016 —
A DXS agent is killed during the terrorist theft of a deadly biological weapon
MISSION: MacGyver and his new team move to intercept a biotoxin, but lose an agent in the process. In the aftermath, MacGyver is dragged back into the investigation to prevent a large-scale bio-attack on U.S. Soil.
This week’s highlights include:
We neglected to mention a couple more notes from last night’s premiere, specifically that Bozer brings up Penny (presumably Parker) when explaining to Mac where this missile prop came from. Expect her to show up at some point. Also, MacGyver makes VO mention of his long-claimed, rarely exhbitied fear of heights.
Shodan is a search engine that lets the user find specific types of computers (web cams, routers, servers, etc.) connected to the internet using a variety of filters. Some have also described it as a search engine of service banners, which are meta-data the server sends back to the client. This can be information about the server software, what options the service supports, a welcome message or anything else that the client can find out before interacting with the server.
