Flashbacks
bullet1952, Warsaw, Poland

Trivia
bulletPatricia Gage hails from Glasgow, although she emigrated to Canada at a young age. Check out her list of credits at the IMDB here.
bulletCarlo Rota is perhaps best known in Canada as the host of The Great Canadian Food Show, which probably explains his character's own love of food and cooking.
bulletThis episode marks Amanda's first Quickening in The Raven. She was previously shown taking Zachary Blaine's head in A18, 'The Lady and The Tiger', while her first ever Quickening was implied in a flashback sequence in D16, 'Methusaleh's Gift'.

Verdict
It's amazing how a "proper" Immortal-based story can raise the bar. Although by no means perfect, there is some clever dialogue and interplay, while Carlo Rota makes an interesting villain, if a little too easily dispatched at the end. B
