In the flashback, Richie looks older than he was in that year, but hey, maybe that's one of the things that changed since Mac never existed.
Trivia: In season's 5 last episode, "Archangel," we find out that Duncan met Connor MacLeod not long after he met the Hermit, still in 1625. In this episode, it's 1634 and Duncan has already left Connor. This means that Connor was his teacher for no longer than 9 years.
Trivia: This is the first time Dawson's artificial legs are seen.
Strangely, the pedestrians in the background seem unconcerned about a gunshot, a boy with a machete held aloft or a woman jumping from a bridge (mainly because they're passing by a television production).
The explanation to Duncan's first Quickening is wrong. It's a known fact that a man cannot behead himself. Duncan must have helped to kill the Hermit.
Trivia: Highlander milestone: we get to see MacLeod's first Quickening in this episode! Perhaps surprisingly, it occurs at least a few months before Duncan met Connor, meaning that the younger MacLeod has absolutely no idea what's happening to him; he doesn't even know he's Immortal yet.
Why does Ahriman take on the appearance of Kronos as he looked in the Bronze Age when he shows himself to Duncan? Duncan never met him until the 19th century.
Despite the fact the demon is supposed to arrive at the end of the millennium, it shows up in 1997? And why is it working on the Christian millennial calendar?
Jonathan Firth keeps forgetting to limp on his character's club foot, ignoring it entirely during his swordfight scenes.
The events at the Villa Diodati in 1816 as shown here bear almost no resemblence to the historical documents of what happened (see Byron: A Self Portrait). There are also many other historical discrepancies - Mary Shelley was not married to Percy Shelley and thus not known as "Mary Shelley" (as Methos refers to her), Mary Godwin was 18 at the time rather then in her 30's, Frankenstein has nothing to do with the loneliness of immortality (although her story "The Mortal Immortal" did), etc.
Mike plays perfectly well in his audition but Joe tells him to leave - there's no indication as to why Joe and Duncan thought he was strung out, although they clearly act disappointed at the fact he is.
For a guy who chronically cheats with poison gas and ambushes and all, Morgan inexplicably lets Duncan verrrry slowly climb up the ladder and stick his head up above the parapet - at any time here Morgan could easily take Duncan's head when the Highlander is using one arm to climb, one arm to rather feebly hold his sword, and rapidly collapsing due to the curare.
Delaney is a member of the U.S. Army Criminal Investigations Division (CID). Why she's in Paris investigating a jewel theft and murder is anyone's guess.
This is the only holiday episode of the series.
Trivia: This is one of those instances that MacLeod doesn't use his katana to behead his opponent, instead he uses daggers.
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).
Even though the "Horsemen" flashbacks seem to take place at least two thousand years in the past, Methos and Kronos (as well as the other two Horsemen) have the exact same accents and speech patterns as they do in the present.
The flashback scenes with the Four Horseman are identified as occurring "in the Bronze Age". However, Kronos' armor and all of their weapons are made of steel.
In the end, why didn't the real Methos go with Duncan in order to find Richie faster? The editing of this episode makes it look like Duncan can teleport since Culbraith was still trying to kill Richie by the time he arrived. Why is it that Culbraith only had one outfit?
