METHUSELAH'S GIFT
Someone is after Amanda's portion of the fabled Methuselah's Stone. They'll do anything to get it too - even go so far as to take her head. Meanwhile, in the Watchers' European Headquarters where the rest of the stone is held, one Watcher in particular is taking an unhealthy interest in the stone and its history: his name? Adam Pierson.

Trivia
bulletThis episode is a sequel to the second-season episode B19, 'Legacy'.
bulletNadia Cameron reprises her role as Rebecca Horne from the same episode.

Verdict
A decent follow up to the original story, but not quite in the same league. Adrian Paul's directorial duties mean a lot of the action centres on Methos and Amanda, and at times he's reduced to little more than a cipher for the rest of the action. B+
