Immortal Kalas discovers the existance of the Watchers and uses them to track the legendary Methos, the semi-mythical oldest Immortal, in order to take his head and become unbeatable. Duncan is determined to find Methos first. This top notch plot is cut through with a rather pointless story of Richie on the racetrack.
Methos: Peter Wingfield
Duncan Macleod: Adrian Paul
Antonius Kalas: David Robb
Joe Dawson: Jim Byrnes
This serves as the introduction of Adam Pierson / Methos. Methos had been masquerading as Watcher Researcher / Historian Adam Pierson in order to avoid other immortals and obscure his own Chronicle. He later expresses an admiration for the Watchers and their work, the sincerity of that view may be questionable considering his life was at stake at the time, however, he has demonstrated a persistent interest in history and scholarship. Additionally in Judgment Day and One Minute to Midnight he actually sides with the Watchers regarding Jacob Galati, although the price he pays is high.
