MacGyver hurries to make a court date on Halloween: character witness at the sanity hearing for Dr. Zito. Pete and Murphy are waiting for him, and note that Zito is acting perfectly sane. It's been five years since Zito was tried, and Murphy is worried the judge will dismiss the case. Psychiatrist Dr. Marion Skinner is testifying on Zito's behalf. MacGyver testifies about how he met Zito two years ago when he engineered Eric Cross' escape from the state mental hospital, then manipulated Eric into trying to murder Murphy. He states that Zito is evil and Skinner objects. The judge overrides her, then asks MacGyver if Eric ever admitted Zito was responsible. MacGyver admits that Eric hung himself in his cell before anyone could verify his story. Zito's attorney declines to cross-examine and the judge rules that Zito is more dangerous than ever and will remain incarcerated...Read the full recap
D.A. Howard: Mr. MacGyver, how would you describe Zito?
Dr. Marion Skinner: Well, we're going to keep fighting. You've made too much progress to give up now.
Dr. Zito: Oh, be assured, I never give up, Dr. Skinner.
Dr. Zito: Do you actually think you're qualified to judge what is evil?
MacGyver: I just call it as I see it.
Dr. Zito: I'm an expert on the subject. One day I'll educate you. A lesson in evil, you might say.
Dr. Zito: I hated to cut short our little discussion about evil. It's a subject close to my heart.
