  • A beautiful young woman, Felicia Martins, throws herself to her death, only to revive with the realization that she is an Immortal. She seeks out Duncan MacLeod as her mentor, and becomes amorously involved with Richie Ryan. But there is much more to this "ingĂ©nue" than meets the eye. She is in fact a long-time Immortal, engaged in a wily scheme to trap MacLeod and acquire his Quickening. MacLeod must see through her subterfuge in time to protect not only himself, but also Richie.moreless

    Trivia (6)

    • When Comanksi describes Felicia, he says she is five foot four, Joan Jett who played Felicia is actually five foot five and a half.

    • When Comanski comes to question Richie about Felicia over the death of Devereux, we see Richie is wearing a red cord around his neck. The cord is knotted to his right, but when the camera switches to behind him, we can see the knot at the back of his neck.

    • The song Richie plays at the start of the episode is "Cherry Bomb" by Joan Jett, who appears in this episode as Felicia Martins.

    • Duncan slips up on Felicia on the beach. She is surprised by his voice. She should have sensed his approach.

    • In the final battle, Duncan and Felicia both go into the water. When they come out, both of them get a close up and when we return to the full shot, both of them are dry.
