Flashbacks
bullet1940, London, England
MacLeod may or may not be in central London working for British Intelligence, but he strikes up a passionate relationship with American journalist Diane Terrin, whose zest for danger in a quest to bring the plight of Blighty to the Yanks threatens to cut short a life she's mapping out with a more cautious Duncan.

Trivia
bulletThis episode marks Lisa Howard's swansong as Anne Lindsey.
bulletDuncan Fraser makes his third appearance - all as different mortal characters - in Highlander. His first was as the SWAT commander in A6 , 'Bad Day in Building A', and his second was as Julia Renquist's father in C8, 'Obsession'.
bulletBeverley Elliott also returns as a different character - she originally played a Supervisor in B14, 'Unholy Alliance, part one'.

Verdict
After a strong fourth season so far, Highlander comes a cropper with two rushed storylines suffering from a lack of Immortals and being crammed into a single episode. A powerful ending provides the only real moment of note.
