  • This episode is a very moving one as Duncan loses the closest person to his heart, but not the way we thought it was going to happen.

  • Quotes (3)

    • Richie: Do you see any attraction for me in the very near future? Greta: Not likely. I sense you're not looking to have a serious relationship. Richie: No, but I can live with frivolous.

    • Carmen: MacLeod, you will bury many women. But you will marry none. You will always be alone, do you hear me? Alone!

    • Duncan: I've been around a long time, Rich. Richie: Four hundred years, I'd say that's quite a bit of time, yeah. Duncan: Yeah, but sometimes I feel even older than that. I've seen so many things, I've fought so many battles. People become part of your life and then they....they just die. It all stays with you, Rich, you live with it. Their hopes, their dreams, their pain, their love. Tessa makes me feel so young. Every time I see her, it's like the first time.

    Notes (2)

    • Flashback: Gypsy Camp, 1848

    • Alexandra Vandernoot (Tessa) leaves the show as a regular.

    Trivia (1)

    • Although Mac says he's never been married and the gypsy says he never will be, in the movie Highlander: Endgame, it is shown that he was married in the past, albeit shortly.

    Allusions (1)

    • Dust In The Wind This song plays over Duncan's montage about his life with Tessa, and is one of the very few times that non-incidental/non-Queen music is played on the show. A mega-hit for the art rock band Kansas in 1977, its bittersweet theme on the transience of the material, mortal world was very appropriate for the loss MacLeod felt for his beloved Tessa.
