OK...I'm really torn here, so please bear with me.
First of all, if you don't want to have the episode spoiled, don't read this. But if you've seen the episode and want to hear my two cents, read on, dear fans of Highlander.
The story begins with an archaeologist who uncovers the sacred temple of Aruman, the demon immortal who represents Satan. He is released, and after the archaeologist travels to Paris to warn Duncan about it, Aruman appears in the guise of James Horton (THATS RIGHT, JAMES HORTON) and distracts Duncan while he uses his super cool telekinesis to strangle the archaeologist, so that he can't teach Duncan how to kill him. Apparently, the prophecy that Cassandra was referring to when she talked about MacLeod was about Aruman, and he was the "Highland Child Who Has Seen Both Light And Dark" who was chosen to kill Aruman, or at least hold him back. I refuse to believe that even Duncan MacLeod is cool enough to own Satan. Anyhoo, everyone thinks Duncan is going crazy because he's seeing Horton and Kronos and everyone he's killed that has been truly evil. Long story short, Richie finally sees Horton, and thinks he's kidnapped Dawson, even though Dawson was standing next to Mac when he was talking to Richie on the phone. Mac goes after Richie, and confronts Aruman, who takes on the form of Richie, Kronos, and Horton, who all basically pull the old circle and taunt. Mac accidentally beheads Richie, and kills him. The epp ends with Mac holding out his sword to Methos, Methos refusing to take it, and Dawson crying on Methos's shoulder over his lost friend.
My Review: 7 out of 10. This show gets points for finally using demons, but minus a million for killing off Richie.
