MacGyver arrives at a Phoenix Foundation lab to meet with Dr. Kozby at Koz's request. After he goes in, a masked commando emerges from beneath his jeep and ascends to the roof. As he gets to the top, he clutches at his head in agony for a moment. Below, Pete goes into the classified lab and runs into MacGyver. He's going to see Kozby as well.

Commander Hilliard: Okay, how are we going to do that?
MacGyver: Slowly.

MacGyver: Steve, you saved my life once. Give me a chance to return the favor.
