Season 6, Episode 2.
This episode takes place in Romania with the fall of Ceauşescu still fresh in Romanians' memories. Well at least it was about the legacy of another real-life evil dictator other than the overused Hitler.
MacGyver and Pete soon encounters a military corp still loyal to Ceauşescu with one of them capturing MacGyver.
In the course of this episode MacGyver forms an unlikely friendship with his captor as we see flashbacks of how he came to be the way he is.
This episode seems to offer hope for this soldier so it is sad what he ultimately had to do towards the episode's end.
