In hindsight, it's pretty weird. 'MacGyver' is now in its fourth season but we've never really learned anything about the mother of Angus "Mac" MacGyver (Lucas Till).

Sure, we know she died when Mac was young (possibly at the hands of the CIA) and we know that she was the mastermind behind File 47, a catastrophic plan to rest the Earth that her sister Gwendolyn Hayes (Jeri Ryan) is currently trying to implement. But so far, that's been about it... until now.

Episode 10 'Tesla + Bell + Edison + Mac' will see Mac going into a dream state and meeting some of his biggest scientific heroes, as well as his long-lost mother. Even without mommy dearest in the mix, Mac's list of heroes is pretty weird as it includes both Nikola Tesla (John Ales) and Thomas Edison (Tom Thon) who were intense rivals.

Clearly there's going to be plenty of drama in the episode, especially since Mac has begun to question what sort of a person his mom might have been. Ever since he found out that she was one of the people behind File 47, Mac's been quite troubled and hopefully, this episode will help him find answers to some of those questions.
