Flashbacks
bullet1660, Kristen's Chateau, France

Trivia
bulletAnn Turkel was once married to the late Richard Harris. Check out her official Web site here. You can see her battle with Duncan (Quicktime required) in the Action section of the Screening Room.
bulletEmmanuelle Vaugier currently guests as  Dr Helen Bryce in Smallville. See her official site here.

Verdict
A hit-and-miss episode, this. The flashback is good, but its length means the present-day tale feels a little rushed. Methos' presence is a little contrived, too, but ultimately he helps lift the episode and adds another layer to his character at the same time. B
