Duncan escapes to Paris, and meets up again with old ally Fitzcairn, who is ready to settle down
after 700 years of bachelordom. Unfortunately, it seems Kalas is not so easy to evade, and the consequences of
Duncan's flight are going to be heavy...
1637, Italy: Duncan and Fitz meet for the first time, one seducing a duke's daughter while
the other is charged with protecting her. Thankfully, the pair hit it off (eventually) and agree to learn to read
together - although Duncan must kill Fitz for his employer's satisfaction first.
+ David Robb once played Prince Charles in the 1982 TV movie, Charles & Diana: A Royal Love
Story! Another notable British actors in this American-only release included Charles Gray, Christopher Lee
and Caroline Bliss (Moneypenny to Dalton's 007).
+ Having enjoyed star status in the series' second season, Michel Modo is relegated to the ignomy of guest star
for this and any subsequent Highlander episode he appears in.
A worthy addition to the Kalas storyline, although knowing the ending will make it a painful experience
to sit through as the inevitable seems to fall into place. B+
