MacGyver Season 5 Episode 1 Spoilers

The upcoming episode is titled ‘Resort + Desi + Riley + Window Cleaner + Witness’ and here is its official synopsis as outlined by CBS: “Mac and the team infiltrate a hotel used as a hideout for criminals and find a woman with vital information on Codex. However, their target has a new secret identity, including a completely new face.”

Fans might know that the fourth season had ended on an abrupt note, just after 13 episodes, thanks to production shutdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, we did not get closure to the Codex arc, which will continue to play out in the fifth season’s premiere. Season 5 picks up the story from the season 4 finale when Codex leader Gwendolyn is killed. But the twist? She is not the top leader!

The main guy leading the group is Leland. In fact, Codex happens to be a very old group, which was most probably launched around the time of the Black Plague. Although MacGyver and the Phoenix Foundation put an end to Leland and Codex’s plans from causing a global apocalypse, they still need to secure the future.
