MacGruber - The Hungry Lion

With everyone believing he is dead, MacGruber (Will Forte) struggles to stay alive as old frenemy Constantine Bach (Timothy V. Murphy) attempts to torture him and Enos Queeth (Billy Zane) moves forward with his plans involving Brimstone. Forte is naked for the entire episode, strapped down, in a plexiglass prison, or running around like an idiot in some kind of industrial facility the bad guys had just laying around. The blind Constantine turns out to be harder to outwit than he should be, but then again MacGruber is pretty fucking stupid. The episode's title comes from a bastardized version of "The Lady, or the Tiger?" which makes absolutely no sense with how it is used here since our protagonist is neither given two choices nor ever comes across two literal doors.
