PATIENT NUMBER 7
Police at her heels, killers on her trail, Kyra is on the run, with no memory of who - or what - she is. In the streets of Paris, she runs into Duncan MacLeod. MacLeod spins a wild story: that he and Kyra were lovers three hundred years ago. That she is a soldier, a warrior. That she is Immortal. Kyra doesn't believe a word of it... But if it isn't true, why is someone after her head?

Trivia
bulletAlthough Mac and Kyra shared a bed on their first meeting, they remained friends over the centuries, although it had been over 100 years since they had seen each other by the time of this episode.
bulletAlice Evans was born in Bristol in the UK - just down the road from where I used to live (Bath). She's currently engaged to Welsh actor Ioan Gruffudd of Pobol y Cwm fame (a Welsh soap), plus some other roles (Hornblower, Fantastic Four, and so on). Check out her IMDB entry here (contrary to the claims on that site's IMDB, it appears her first English-speaking role would have been this Highlander episode).

Verdict
The second episode to showcase a potential female replacement for Duncan falls flat on its back. Nice bit about why Kyra is in the state she is, but that's it.
