As for Hudson and Raquel, the pair will appear in an episode set for April, and they will give MacGyver and his team a mystery to solve. TV Line revealed the following:
“Mac and Desi go with Bozer back home when his mother’s best friend dies in a tragic accident. But soon after arriving there, they realize that the woman’s death may have been murder, and the city’s contaminated water supply holds the key to finding the killer.”
