Did You Know?


The episode features a flashback to c. 1872, where a grieving Duncan is visited by Connor. Duncan had apparently settled with a Native American tribe, but his entire tribe was slain by white people. The events for this era of Duncan's life were further fleshed out in the later episodes "Line of Fire" and "Something Wicked". See more »

movie version does exist
8 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

I have the 98 Minute long movie version of this episode on VHS. It was made into an actual movie and was intended to be Highlander 3.

I had no idea it actually existed, and it took a bit of digging around on google to even find mention of it. The version I found was manufactured by Hemdale Home Video INC. and is dated 1993.

It's good to see another Highlander movie out there, even if it's on an all but extinct format.

My guess is they produced this as an unedited, extended version for fans and collectors, as it would likely not have been released on television in this length.

Definitely worth a watch if you can ever get your hands on it.
