Recap

MacGyver drives out to the Phoenix Foundation's wasteland test site and finds an envelope taped to the entrance sign. Inside it is an audiotape from Foundation scientist Willis, warning that the land is heavily toxic as a result of development, and the town of Maple Ridge if Bartlett City Development becomes a reality...

Episode Quotes
Willis: I made this audio tape to keep you company and to tell you the bad news I've been accumulating about the death of this land that was once busy with living things. God said "Let there be life" and there was life. Man said "Let me develop, use, and consume everything I can without thinking about the consequences" and this is the result. Charming, isn't it?



Episode References
MacGyverisms:
* A winch cable, played out to its full length, and the winch turned on giving him enough time to run out and rescue someone from quicksand
* Pool chalk powder to blind an opponent
* Fan from a wind tunnel, combined with a backpack, with tent panels fastened to it with rope, to make an ultra-light propelled glider
