BAD DAY IN BUILDING A
Tessa's collection of parking tickets requires paying, but little does she know that she, Mac and Ritchie are about to become key players in Bryan Slade's attempt to escape imprisonment.

Trivia
bulletBryan Slade bears a striking resemblance to Immortal Gavriel Larca (E9, 'Little Tin God'), which might have something to do with the fact both were played by Andrew Divoff. Visit his official Web site here.
bulletMac tells the story of a white city where immortal 'fairies' once lived in peace and harmony in some distant past. It's extremely likely that he's making this up on the spot, but he might just be referring to some distant (and possibly legendary) point in the Immortals' past.

Verdict
Not much to get excited about here. Thank goodness the producers cottoned on quickly to the need to involve Immortals and flashbacks in most episodes. C-
