Plot Overview

Duncan moves back to America with Tessa and Richie to continue investigating the book he found in Darius's rectory. He soon meets a man named Joe Dawson, who introduces himself as part of an organisation that observes immortals, but Duncan is reluctant to trust him.


  • Joe brings up the Kurgan and Connor MacLeod's defeat of him, as depicted in the first Highlander film. However, this creates some questions concerning continuity since it was made clear that Connor and the Kurgan were the last two immortals and Connor's victory resulted in him winning the Prize.

Arc Advancement




  • The battleaxe Duncan finds at Joe's belonged to and was used by Duncan to behead Caleb in "Mountain Men".
