Hey guys, in the wiki entry it says that in the episode "Free Fall", where Joan Jett plays an immortal out to kill Duncan, it is written that Duncan calls his finishing move "empasse di soto". I misheard it that way as well. But I believe what he actually said was "passata sotto" (passed below) or "passata di sotto" (passed under). Observe:
What's on your mind?
It was announced yesterday that Stan Kirsch, who played Richie Ryan, has passed away.
Details are thin, but unnecessary, the point is, one of the Highlander family had left us, and we are the poorer for it.
We offer this community's sincere condolences to his friends and family during this difficult time.
If Jacob Kell is Connor's clansman, then he's also from the clan of MacLeod. Why then is his name Kell and not MacLeod?
What are the major contradictions which need to be explained if wanting to view things like the films, the TV, Animated Series or Search for Vengeance as a single timeline? I'd like to know if we can think up ways to explain it where it would all work out.
The only thing I've come across is the idea that Connor is the ONLY immortal in films 1-3 whereas in "The Source" and "Animated Series" there are clearly still others.
Couldn't this simply be a mistake because he didn't know about any others?
This theory suggests that the rules were misunderstood. Like, if there was only 1 toy left for Christmas, sure you could fight for it but there's no need to... seriously.
Wonder if Highlander will ever be rebooted for both movie & TV series.
If they reboot Duncan MacLeod's story later, here's how I picture it - Star Wars & Devilman style.
- A young mortal taken in by MacLeod
- Later becomes an immortal and someone Duncan loves dies.
- A few women the young immortal fell in love with are lost to him. One running from the law, one who he knew since childhood was forced to throw her out of his life, when realizing he couldn't protect her and her child.
- This causes him to waver from the pressures of being in The Game. A mysterious immortal offers him to be taken under his wing. He offers to help him with a woman who'll he'll have for the rest of his life and a child who he can pass on his legacy to him.
- This immortal however is evil and dangerous as the devil himself. He is one of the Four Horsemen, and he offers him a place as one of the newer Horsemen.
- Their goal is to end The Gathering, so that they be free to rule the world as they please. During some event, they successfully expose their race to the world causing panic and crisis. Prejudice and resentment, etc.
- Immortals are being hunted down and Duncan tries to stop his young apprentice from the madness he unleashed.
- Duncan wants to save him, but the young Immortal whose been filled with hatred from all the experience, he'd rather see them all dead and be the only one standing. But an accident causes him to fall and be burned alive.
- The evil Horseman saves him and restores him.
- The woman the young immortal fell in love with had a child. She gave birth to it before she died. It happened when she tries to beg him to stop the evil he unknowingly unleashed, but wouldn't listen as he feels paranoid that she betrayed him for MacLeod.
Just going by Star Wars' Anakin story
- Duncan sends the child to an orphanage where he can be adopted into a happy family and that he'd watch over him.
- The young child grows up but suddenly becomes immortal and Duncan trains him but wouldn't tell him of his parents' deaths until later.
- The young child's mission is not only to save his father but also end the war between mortals and immortals.
What do you think?
On Coltec's page, it lists him as being from present day Mississippi, as part of the Cahokia tribe. The episode he appears in originally (Something Wicked) states he's from Cahokia, not that he's just part of the tribe. This would apply he's from the native American city of Cahokia, which was located in current Illinois, just northeast of St. Louis.
Is there a reason why the Wiki lists him as being from elsewhere?
With the Highlander WorldWide convention fast coming, October 20-22, 2017, in Los Angeles, I am attending! The money, the money. I will live through this, with joy. Adrian, Elizabeth, Stan, Peter, F Braun McAsh, Anthony De Longis, James Horan, Gillian, and MORE, and I'm just gibbering with excitement!
Recently there has been a question about what should be included in the list of rules Immortals adhere to. It has long been accepted that the list consisted of both hard and fast rules such as no fighting on holy ground, and slightly (and only slightly) more flexible guidelines about not making your fights public. There is a little leeway on that one, since Immortals do sometimes let mortals into their lives.
The rules are:
No Immortal can fight on Holy Ground, no matter who regards it as Holy Immortal
Combat is one on one — no outside interference, no two on one
Mortals must not learn about Immortals — if you're killed, you move on/don't make a spectacle of yourself
No Immortal can have natural children
In the end, there can be only one — the last one will receive all the power of all the Immortals who ever lived
The rule in contention is to keep one's fights secret, which is the logical offshoot of not letting mortals learn of the existence of Immortals. The contributor who claims this does not apply, seems only to base his view on the original movie and nothing else. In the original movie, there is no backstory, no other immortals to worry about, if the Kurgan gets spotted, well, he's pretty sure he will be ruling the world pretty soon, so he doesn't much care. In the series, however, it's pointed out on several occasions that letting mortals in on the Immortal secret would be a bad thing. The episodes, Finale and Black Tower spring to mind. The implication has always been that Immortals keep it to themselves, and that means fights will not be staged as a cage match for all to see.
If you have something you'd like to add, please do. Would like to see a general consensus on what the rules should be before a final ruling as to the list included in the article.
In my considered opinion, there isn't much point making links for every tiny thing or every extremely minor character in an article if they don't actually connect to anything. If you aren't willing to take the time to create the page, I see no reason to make an orphan link that some one else than has to deal with. All for being a comprehensive resource, but dead links do nothing for us. If you have a counter argument, feel free, but I see this wiki as a slow and steady place, everything will get done in its own time, and there is no real need to go dropping red flags everywhere.

Don Salzar, the watcher who was killed by Kalas, and was Methos's mentor, I'm not able to help but to wonder if he knew that Methos was "the Methos?" I would almost think so, because they shared a lot, and as he was dying, when Duncan found him, he was trying to write Methos's name in blood. Maybe Methos made him promise not to say anything to the other watchers.
I liked the episode, of "Eye for an Eye," a lot. Sheena Easton was AMAZING in the role. Duncan and her's love scene on the docks was SEXY!!!!! :):) :) I think Annie's hate and anger was actually a cover, for the pain of immortality, and all the losses. I also think Duncan really did care for her, and and wanted to help her, but I don't know if she really wanted to listen. I actually think Duncan and and her, had more chemistry then him and Anne did. Anne was nice, and I think he did love her, but not like he loved Tessa or Amanda.
Of the five new female immortals of season 6, were your favorites? My favorite was Katya from "Justice." I thought their love scene was really nice and sexy,and they really seemed to connect. I also think Duncan was starting to fall for her. He seemed rather upset when she said she had to leave, though I think he understood why she had to. My guess is, he would have liked it if she would have stayed with him for awhile.
Here's what I think, Tessa was the best MORTAL woman for Duncan, but Amanda was the best IMMORTAL woman for Duncan. Anyone else think the same thing?
I'm curious: Were you surprised at the end of the episodes "Promises," when Duncan threw Hamad out the window? Anyone else find Kassim annoying, the way he seemed to just expect Duncan to find it easy to kill, no questions asked? Not saying Hamad didn't deserve it, but it isn't supposed to be easy to kill. I don't totally knew why Kassim didn't just kill Hamad himself-who cares if he promised never to lay hands on him, just do it anyway. Did anyone else think the same thing. Also, I think he threw the whole oath thing in Duncan's face way too much, and hated it when Kassim called Ducan a coward. Also, I have a tendency to think HIghlander was one of those shows, where if you knew what the characters were thinking, certain things that seem weird or contradictory, would make more sense if you knew what they were supposed to be thinking at the time.
What was your favorite episode with Duncan and Amanda? I have to say my two very favorite episodes with them, were Forgive Us Our Trespasses, from Season 5, and Legacy from Season 2. Top 5, in order would be Forgive Us Our Trespasses, Season 5, Legacy, Season 2, Finale, pt 1&2, Season 3, Dramatic License Season 5, and Methuselah's Gift, Season 4.
What did you think of Beth Vaughn in Warmonger? She was rather obnoxious, but she wasn't bad. Think she really wasn't Duncan's type? Were you surprised when Duncan went for her at the end? Could you have done without the whole "In the Biblical Sense," at th end? :) Angeline Ball is a great actress though, and was very good in the role.
