Season six failed to scale the heights of earlier
Highlander seasons. There are many reasons for this, but one of
them was a desire to test the waters for a spin-off series featuring a
female Immortal. As a result, no less than five episodes showcased
potential actresses and characters, in which Duncan made what amounted
to cameo appearances in some, and was completely absent from another.
Episode 11 then tried a different tack, featuring Joe Dawson and
Methos, but thankfully everything was wrapped up neatly in a two-part
finalé that was a clever homage to It's a Wonderful Life.
"His name is Duncan MacLeod, the Highlander. He was born in 1592
in the Highlands of Scotland and he is still alive. He is Immortal.
For 400 years he's been a warrior, a lover, a wanderer, a champion.
But he is not alone. There are others like him; some good, some evil.
For centuries he has battled the forces of darkness, constantly facing
other Immortals in combat to the death. The winner takes his enemy's
head and, with it, his power. I am a Watcher, part of a secret society
of men and women who observe and record but never interfere. We know
the truth about Immortals. In the end there can be only one - may it
be Duncan MacLeod, the Highlander."
