In the 1990s, she was an elderly woman. Her last show, "Studies in Light and Darkness" with another photographer, Greg Powers, drew MacLeod and Tessa. MacLeod discovered from Greg, a fellow immortal, that Linda was dying. She spotted him at the show and recognized Duncan, but her care giver thought her loopy due to her medication, Duncan was speechless, he had never thought to see her again, and had never told her what he was.
Once Linda was hospitalized, MacLeod went to her, both to protect her from the demented Greg, but to finally tell her who he was, that she was right: "Don't ask me to explain, Linda. It's not something you need to understand now. But what you need to understand... is that you've always been very important to me."
She expressed her gratitude for his help and encouragement, and sorrow for having left him. In her last moments, he assured "I'm so proud of you...always have been."
She smiled, "Thank you, Duncan. Thank you so much for everything."
"The pleasure was mine", and he wept at her passing.
