Eileen Brennan (Holland Roden) is the daughter of “The Ghost” (Sean Cameron Michael), a notorious bomb maker who’s famous for his elaborate bomb traps used in terror attacks.
Angus MacGyver (Lucas Till) and Charlie Robinson (Emerson Brooks) served together in the army as EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) techs. On a two-week-mission in Kabul, they disarmed 127 IEDs together, setting a new record. During their tour, they encountered bombs planted by a bomb maker called “The Ghost” because no one ever managed to see his face to identify him.
In Episode 3×08 (Revenge + Catacombs + Le Fantome), Team Phoenix is approached by Eileen Brennan. She’s an Irish military intelligence officer; claiming she knows the whereabouts of “The Ghost”. Charlie joins Team Phoenix and Eileen to finally get hold of the bomb maker.
During the episode, MacGyver gets trapped while trying to deactivate a bomb set in Paris. “The Ghost” tells him that there is one more bomb hidden out there, waiting for Mac and his friends.
It’s later revealed that Eileen is the daughter of “The Ghost”. When she was a child, he had killed her mother by accident while putting a bomb together for the IRA. She only asked for the Phoenix Foundation’s help because she finally wanted to get revenge. She kills her father and disappears; leaving it to MacGyver to deactivate the bomb.
