    In this episode, MacGyver does a fantastic job turning the youngsters around by being a true leader: someone followed because he knows what he’s doing, not because of an “or else”, and indeed, even these control freak kids start to listen to him instead of feeling like they’re just being bossed around, start to reciprocate his compassion instead of seeing it as a weakness, and eventually they are able to work together as a team. MacGyver doesn’t harass Luther for refusing to help: he understands that the inner transformation cannot be forced or rushed. The lost knife is a great story. I remembered it almost word by word and MacGyver made his general disapproval of honour killing clear enough by then that it doesn’t look like he was suggesting that killing Ramón would only be immoral if Luther was wrong about him.
