EXCLUSIVE | 'MacGyver' star Henry Ian Cusick says Season 4 Episode 6 will shed light on Russ Taylor's past
'MacGyver' Season 4 has been a very interesting ride so far with the last episode dropping a major cliffhanger. As it stands, it appears Matty Webber (Meredith Eaton) may be a traitor and secretly the head of the Phoenix Foundation, though it is possible she's been framed.
In either case, with Matty's role at the organization in question, Henry Ian Cusick's Russ Taylor is about to take up the reins of the Foundation once more and it looks like Episode 6 is going to be all about Russ.
In an interview with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW), Cusick gave us a few hints about the episode and also about how we may find out more about Russ' past as the season progresses.
"Yes, you'll get a very Russ Taylor-centric episode, and I believe it's episode six where you learn a lot about it," Cusick explained. "But there's still a lot about his thoughts that you don't know that I believe they might be, it might be alluded to and relate to part of the season."
"I think maybe episode 21 or 22, 18... I can't remember which one but yeah, in episode six, you get to know quite a bit about [Russ]. He has a love interest and that is not his distant past I think his recent past, more like in the last five or six years, you get to know a bit more about what makes him tick," he added.
Here's the official synopsis for 'MacGyver' Season 4 Episode 6 'Right + Wrong + Both + Neither': "When Russ' first love, Emilia, is kidnapped by the same rebels he fought during his private military contract days, he takes the Phoenix team to a small, impoverished town to rescue her and rid the town of the rebels for good."
'MacGyver' Season 4 airs new episodes every Friday at 8/7 c exclusively on CBS.
