Episode Summary

EDIT
Spanish swordplay, like Spanish dancing, is equal parts passion, skill, and strict discipline. The Immortal Otavio Consone is a master of both. An arrogant Spaniard who 150 years ago tried to teach MacLeod the sword art called "The Mysterious Circle," Consone vied with MacLeod for the hand of a beautiful senorita, with tragic results. Now MacLeod must protect a Flamenco artist and her daughter from Consone's revenge.moreless

  • Wow, A good episode! Finally!

    8.5
    This is the first actually good episode since the 2-parter ending of Season 3: "Finale". FInally, someone did some basic research into sword fighting. Finally, someone bothered to actually learn enough to properly choreograph a fight. Finally, a fight that isn't 2 people dressed in black on a black background, with no lighting, so it is actually possible to see the fight. Wow, it's almost like someone actually bothered to remember what Highlander is supposed to be about.

    Unfortunately, this is the only episode this entire season that bothers to display anything like this quality and attention. Most of the season is "What comedy flavor can we put into this week's episode?"



    Really, watch this episode, and nothing else.moreless

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Duncan: You know not what I am.
      Theresa: I know enough. I know what I feel when you touch me, I know when I look in your eyes that you love me. Nothing else matters, we'll have a lifetime to learn each other's secrets. What else is marriage for?

    • Richie: Sometimes, something seems impossible, but it's not. It's just... it's just the way it is.

    • Duncan: Consone thought the fight was all about control, about mastering every step and every move. But, you know, there's a place in the dance where you just forget about dancing. When you do things beyond what your body has learned, it's beyond what your conscious mind is capable of.

  • NOTES (1)

    • Anthony DeLongis first appeared as the Immortal Lymon Kurlo in the third-season episode "Blackmail." In this episode, obviously, he plays a different role.
