Mac (Lucas Till) will be busy locating a suspected bomber in “MacGyver” Season 4, episode 8. According to the official plot synopsis, Oversight (Tate Donovan) will recruit the hero after surviving a brutal bombing attack.

A preview video of the next episode has surfaced online and it is promising an explosive plot for Mac. Oversight will recruit Mac to find a suspected bomber after surviving an attack. According to the plot, this will be the episode where the hero will meet his Aunt Gwendolyn (Jeri Ryan).

Aunt Gwendolyn is a recurring character in the show, TV Insider reported. Promo pictures of the next episode that have been released online show the first meeting of the two characters. The photos tease how Mac will be shocked by the unexpected family reunion.

Mac’s aunt is an ex-DXS agent who was presumed dead, executive producer Peter Lenkov teased. She is Mac’s mother’s sister and she has been keeping an eye on him from the shadow all these years when he thought she was dead.

How will Gwendolyn’s story be connected to the plot of “MacGyver” Season 4, episode 8? There is a reason why the character is surfacing now after all these years. She is suspected to be the head of Codex. The main plot of this season has been about the agents going after Codex, but that chase will result in some unexpected twists.

As far as Mac is concerned, he will be in a dilemma. On the one hand he wants to connect with a family member, but at the same time he has to recognize that his aunt is opposed to everything that he stands for, which should make things difficult for him even though his aunt will remind him of his mother.

Fans who want to catch-up on the show before the next episode airs, the TV series is currently streaming all the episodes online.

“MacGyver” Season 4, episode 8 is titled “Father + Son + Father + Matriarch.” It will air on April 3 at 8 p.m. EDT on CBS.
