BLACK TOWER
400 years ago, Devon Marek was a spoiled aristocrat with a passion for the hunt. His first teacher, Duncan MacLeod, forced him to give up his lands and title when he became Immortal - and Marek's never forgiven him for it. Today Marek has built his own empire - and now hunts his most dangerous prey: MacLeod.

Trivia
bulletMarek was the first pre-Immortal Mac sensed, although he only realised this after Marek was killed and he'd inadvertently buried him. Comments made by Mac at the time show that Connor had taught him about pre-Immortals.
bulletAlexi Kaye Campbell played in Salman Rushdie's Midnight Children across the UK in 2003 - I saw him in Bath.
bulletFavourite quote:

"What I sensed, you pompous ass, was immortality." (Duncan)

Verdict
Great flashback scene, perfectly tying in with the Highlander timeline. If only the present-day scenes had been any better.
