  • Duncan encounters Amanda, an Immortal who has sometimes been his lover, and often a thorn in his side, for centuries. Fireworks ensue.

    7.6
    This is the first of many Highlander episodes to feature Amanda, a 1300 year old master thief, courtesan, trickster, and all-around high maintenance woman. She went on to become one of the most popular recurring characters in Highlander and starred in the one-season spinoff series "Highlander: the Raven".



    This is a don't-miss episode just because Amanda is such an important character in the series. She is ambiguously motivated - self-centered, amoral and manipulative, but occasionally altruistic and always incredibly sexy. Her on-again, off-again relationship with Duncan is an important thread throughout the series.



    Also interesting is the friction between Amanda and Tessa. Meeting your lover's old flame is stressful at the best of times - how much worse when she can casually reminisce about making love with Richard the Lion-heart before he left for the Crusades?moreless
