Trivia
bulletThis is the first of two episodes that Duncan makes no appearance in whatsoever. In fact, in this episode, none of the regular characters appear.
bulletKatherine claims to have posed for the Karma Sutra. Makes for quite a pick-up line.
bulletClaudia Christian made her name in Babylon 5. Ironically, she was replaced by ex-Highlander guest star Tracy Scoggins for the final season of that series.

Verdict
In its favour, Katherine is a potentially interesting character. Against it is poor acting, little or no relevance to the Highlander series and the feeling you're being cheated because it's actually a fifth female Immortal being showcased. C
