Trivia
bulletThis is the first of Werner Stocker's appearances as Darius. Werner hailed from Bavaria, and tragically died soon after the end of the first season in Munich.
bulletJames Horan is one of those genre veterans who pops up all over the place, especially in the Star Trek universe, where he's played characters in The Next Generation (two separate characters), Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise. Visit his official Fan Club page here.

Verdict
For me, the first stand-out Highlander episode, with the flashbacks and characters of Darius and Grayson ushering in a new depth to the series.
