Spoilers for 'MacGyver' Season 5 

There is some bad news for 'MacGyver' fans — there is no new episode this week. This time though we were teased! The original release date for Season 5 Episode 11 was supposed to be this week on March 12, 2021, but the network changed the schedule later. With the next episode heavily focused on Mac and Riley, the fans that ship them have gotten really upset that they have to wait weeks before seeing a #MacRiley scene.

According to the CBS schedule, March 12, 8 pm, will see the Meghan Markle and Prince Harry CBS Primetime Special with Oprah Winfrey instead. While there is no official reason, we would assume that Covid-19 and that bombshell interview could be it.

We're not going to lie, the wait is a tad bit long but we have to say that the episode might be worth it. Read to find out what havoc Episode 11 will bring upon the romantic ships on 'MacGyver'.

When will Season 5 Episode 11 air?

'C8H7CIO + Nano-Trackers + Resistance + Maldives + Mind Games' will premiere on Friday, March 27, 2021, at 8 pm EST on CBS. The official synopsis of the episode reads, "Mac and Riley head overseas together to prevent a governmental collapse and inadvertently inhale new deadly microscopic technology."

While the mission seems dangerous, we have to say we're more focused on if anything will happen between Mac and Roley considering Desi isn't anywhere nearby — not that we want MacGyver to cheat, but the least he can do is acknowledge that Riley has feelings for him. With so much time together, and so much stress trying to well, not die, we have to hope that #MacRiley fans will get a hopeful glimpse of a couple.

Who are the guest stars in 'C8H7CIO + Nano-Trackers + Resistance + Maldives + Mind Games'?

The guest stars are Deepti Gupta as Priya Chanani, Scott Holroyd as Kevin, Alexandra Grey as Parker, Tina Ivlev as Teo and Jeremy Crutchley as Dr Silas Mercer. The episode is written by Joshua Brown and Teresa Huang and is directed by David Straiton.
