Amber (Sarah Sokolovic) is the estranged wife of Murdoc (David Dastmalchian). Both are renowned and infamous international assassins who met in Russia when hired to take out the same target. They have a son named Cassian (Brady Bond).
In Episode 3×06 (Murdoc + MacGyver + Murdoc), Murdoc kidnaps Angus MacGyver’s girlfriend Nasha (Sibongile Mlambo). This way, he wants to force MacGyver (Lucas Till) to help him retrieve Cassian who has been abducted for ransom.
While looking for Cassian, they encounter Amber, a professional killer. As it turns out, Murdoc lied about Cassian’s mother being dead. In fact, Murdoc and Amber are still married, but haven’t seen each other for years while Amber was being held in a Serbian prison.
She tricks MacGyver and Murdoc into stealing millions of dollars and bringing it to Benjamin Liu, the man who kidnapped their son. When Benjamin calls Amber “Cookie”, Murdoc realizes that Amber was in on the whole thing.
At the end of the episode, Murdoc spares Amber’s life; demanding that she leaves for good and never contacts Cassian ever again. Amber accepts. Murdoc goes back to prison while Cassian is put with a foster family to take care of him.
