Interesting facts

+ Nicholas Lea is best known for his role as Krycek in The X-Files. He also appeared (as a different character) in the second-season episode 'The Fighter' (B11).
+ We discover that it's reasonably safe to blow up an Immortal without killing him or her. Duncan and Cory are the guinea pigs in this particular experiment.
