Episode Summary

One by one, Kronos is putting the Four Horsemen back together. Once they struck fear in the hearts of men with sword and axe. Today, their weapons of destruction are different, but their goal is the same: to bring mankind what it fears most, the Apocalypse. Only Duncan MacLeod stands between them and the end of the world.moreless

  • The four horsemen are back together.

    OK, we're going to France early this season, probablly because we're our of ideas. Chronos and Methos pick up War and Famine and go to a secret lab to put together a plan to poison Fance's water supply (like anyone would notice? Don't all the Frence drink Evian and Perrier?). The results are pretty predictable. MacLeod kills Famine. Methos kills War. MacLeod kills Pestilence. The Oracle Scoggins doesn't kill Methos. We get to see a simultaneous Quickenting, which is sort of a weird swirly thing arround the eyes. Methos and MacLeod look kind of embarrassed--like spotting a friend while you're both in the lobby of a "house of dubious repute". And now, for another gripe about fight choreography. What is the point, if you're filming actors wearing all black, against a black background, with hardly any lighting? In short, if we can't see it, what's the point? What little we have been able to see for the last season and a half shows a clear lack of talent in the choreography department. It is very easy to see where Highlander:The Source came from, based on how bad these episodes are.moreless
  • Such a great episode!

    Wow, how can I reduce to mere words my feelings about this episode. On the one hand, you have Methos just trying to get along with Kronos. Methos is above all, a survivor. On the other hand you have Duncan trying to make sense of what happened both in the past and in the present. Duncan is an extremely honorable man. I especially liked the fight sequences and how Methos lamented that he was forced to kill the one member of the Four Horsemen that he liked. Methos' comments to Duncan as the episode ends leads to you the thought that over the past 5000 year, he has had many, many regrets.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • There seems to be some confusion in these episodes as to when the Horsemen last rode together. In "Horseman," Methos says that Silas may not remember them b/c "it's been over a thousand years" since they last saw each other. Later still, Methos and the other Horsemen make repeated references to not having rode together in "2000 years."

    • It's never explained how Duncan finds the submarine base Kronos uses for a hideout (the scene explaining how he traced the monkeys was cut, but appears in the Euroversion).

  • QUOTES (16)

    • Caspian: We're having a friend for dinner, tell me which goes best with rodent, red or white?
      Silas: Eat him and I eat you.
      Caspian: You're crazy, you should've been in the madhouse instead of me.
      Silas: Keep talking, I'll send you back there without your head!

    • (from the alternative cut)
      Methos: People who don't learn from their mistakes, repeat them.
      Kronos: We don't make mistakes, we make history!

    • Kronos: If MacLeod even gets close, kill her.
      Cassandra: He's alive?
      Kronos: Not for long!

    • (from the alternative cut)
      Kronos: Methos the scholar, that's a good one.
      Methos: I want to study, I want to learn.
      Kronos: What for? What have you got to learn?
      Methos: Everything! About the world! About myself, about who we are.
      Kronos: I can tell you that. I am Kronos, I always have been, and I always will be, and you are exactly like me.

    • (from the alternative cut)
      Kronos: {to Methos} You can't outsmart me, you can't outfight me, and you sure as hell can't kill me.
      Methos: You're so sure of that?
      Kronos: You had your chance and you didn't take it.

    • (From the alternative cut)
      Methos: It's been over a thousand years - he may not remember us.
      Kronos: He'll remember - what we were you don't forget.
      Methos: And if he doesn't want to come?
      Kronos: He'll come...or he'll die.

    • Duncan: Kronos was right - you set the whole thing up, didn't you?
      Methos: What d'you mean?
      Duncan: You knew he'd come after Cassandra, and you let him because you knew I'd come after her. You couldn't kill him, but you hoped I could.
      Methos: Maybe.
      Duncan: "Maybe." Methos, what about Cassandra?
      Methos: One of a thousand regrets, MacLeod, one of a thousand regrets.

    • Silas: MacLeod's here?
      Methos: Yes. (Methos draws his sword)
      Silas: You're challenging me? For the girl's head? Take it. She's yours, brother.
      Methos: I am not your brother.
      Silas: How can you do this? How can you go against what you are?
      Methos: You don't know anything about me!

    • Kronos: You didn't really think I wouldn't know you'd tell MacLeod, did you?
      Methos: It's not like you think it is.
      Kronos: Ah, it's exactly like I think. My dearest brother, that's what makes you my perfect right arm; we think alike. We always have.
      Methos: I doubt that, Kronos. No one thinks quite like you.
      Kronos: Spoken like a true scholar.

    • Duncan: Why did you lie to me?
      Methos: About what?
      Duncan: About Cassandra, about who you were.
      Methos: I have been many things, MacLeod.
      Duncan: And who are you now?

    • Silas: Methos, you look troubled.
      Methos: Just thinking.
      Silas: Ah, you were always good at that, eh? And after all these years, you still are.

    • Caspian: You have a plan?
      Kronos: I have a few thoughts. I have a few dollars, enough for a start. Now we have Methos; now we have a plan.
      Methos: What did you have in mind?
      Kronos: Once we rode out of the sun bringing death at the point of a sword. There was no man and no Immortal who could stand before us. We were death on horseback. They called us the end of the world. Well, gentlemen, I want to give them what they fear most, the apocalypse.

    • Silas: Methos! Hey, Methos! What the hell is this place?
      Methos: This is Kronos's idea of Camelot.
      Silas: Where are the stables, hm? The horses? Well, how do we ride?
      Caspian: Where have you been for the last two thousand years, idiot? Living in the woods, and now you think we can just mount up and gallop down Broadway?
      Silas: We can do whatever we please.
      Caspian: Right. Four guys on horseback. Wild masks. They'll think we're in a circus.
      Silas: They won't think it for long, will they?

    • Kronos: Two days on an airplane and another two on a horse. I hope you're not wasting my time.
      Methos: I thought you enjoyed my company.
      Kronos: Even for you, Methos, my patience has limits.
      Methos: This is the place. I'm telling you, Kronos, he's here. Would I lie to you?
      Kronos: Have you ever done anything else?

    • Methos: I killed Silas! I liked Silas!

    • Duncan: "The Three Horsemen of the Apocalypse" - doesn't have the same ring to it, does it, Kronos?

    • Title
      The actual biblical reference to Death (Methos): And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
