In the MacGyver episode “Mardi Gras Beads + Chair,” the team travels to New Orleans. Their mission is to find a woman named Dixie who’s posing as the wife of Duke Jacoby, one of Jack’s (George Eads) old CIA aliases. But while Jack shows up in the Big Easy and rehashes his past, some of his old enemies pop up and want revenge.
Dixie is portrayed by Amy Smart. She’s known for her roles on Justified (Allison), Shameless (Jasmine Hollander), Scrubs (Jamie Moyer), and Felicity (Ruby), among others. Smart is also recognized for her roles in the films Just Friends with Ryan Reynolds (Jamie Palamino, see link above), Road Trip (Beth), The Butterfly Effect with Ashton Kutcher (Kayleigh), and Starship Troopers (Pilot Cadet Stack Lumbreiser).
