Wouldn't you just believe it. First Tessa is kidnapped, which is bad
enough. Second, she's kidnapped by a group of survivalists who shun
society and live in the Pacific North West wilderness. Third, the
leader of this group is an Immortal, and fourth, he's in love with
Tessa. It's not all doom and gloom, though: Mac is on their tail,
and he's understandably peeved.
1873, Pacific North West: Duncan learns to
track from Carl the Hermit. Caleb also acquires this skill from Carl
at an undetermined later date, courtesy of a beheading.
Carl the Hermit
+ Marc Singer is well known for various roles in TVs and movies,
including the lead in three Beastmaster films (he also
guest starred as a different character in the spin-off TV series),
V (both mini-series and TV series proper), and various guest
roles from Planet of the Apes in 1974 to Batman: The
Animated Series (playing Man-Bat).
+ This episode was originally aired after Deadly Medicine.
A competent story, if nothing special. At least
Duncan gets to meet an Immortal he's never met before, which must be
quite a novelty. C+
