to not know where or who you...
2 March 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Have friends who were raised/adopted and only 1 really has no interest in finding birth parent(s), I can see why some do an others don't, and that too can change over time. On Highlander, they aren't suppose to know where or who they came from, its all apart of the myth/story of immortals.

This epi, we aren't to "know" Richie is one of them yet, well actually "we" don't, even Tessa questions Duncan as to why he wont help, so of course he does.

Richie was about 3 or 4 when the woman he thought was his mom dies in front of him, and from the glimpse he gets of his papers sees she was still married when died. Richie finds someone who then "claims" to be his dad, (Duncan suspicious), and well Richie really tries to believe even though not a very good man/father and even sticks up for him, but...Duncan has pretty much found out who the isn't and that he "owes" money and willin to steal...

Richie finds out he isn't who he thought, well was hoping for, found out they were (she was) foster mom and this other man is going to see his son to well make amends ? well who knows...and this ends with him still thinking he might find out what happened to his parents. Of course love the flashbacks as Duncan too wonders where he came from, even though his father "disowned" him but of course he still avenged his fathers death (lucky his mom said he was Duncan MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod, another future epi with another legend).
