MacGyver twice crossed foils with a brilliant serial killer imprisoned in psychiatric hospital named Dr. Zito. In their first encounter Zito was using a fellow prisoner to target Lt. Kate Murphy, the police officer who arrested him. Two years later Dr. Zito escapes from court during his sanity hearing, and MacGyver and Murphy become victims of Zito's sadistic games.
Dr. Zito was portrayed by the brilliant W(illiam) Morgan Sheppard, one of the finest actors ever to grace any television series or movie.
