Murdoc, the notorious international assassin and mercenary and Angus "Mac" MacGyver's (Lucas Till) nemesis is back in the new episode next week. After a one-week hiatus this week, we're in for a Codex and action-filled episode as it turns out that Murdoc has been having fun with the Phoenix Foundation comms and has been in on their day-to-day because he's been recording them. So, we have to say, waiting one week for this exciting episode isn't too bad.
