|Through a Glass Darkly|
The episode opens with Methos and MacLeod at Alexa Bond's grave, they discuss memory, how one can never really die if there is still someone who remembers them. Enter Warren Cochrane, an old soldier who fought beside MacLeod throughout the '45, but who seems to have no memory of the Highlander or even of himself. In flashback to 1700's Scotland, Duncan and Warren Cochrane are among those fighting for Prince Charles Stewart, but only Duncan eventually realizes that the Scots must abandon the prince or be slaughtered in one mismanaged battle after another. In modern day, Cocharane is paranoid and confused, he has even forgotten he is Immortal. As Duncan helps him remember his past, he remembers that he blames Duncan for Charles Edward's failure to capture the Scottish and English thrones, and worse, the dreadful act that caused his memory loss in the first place.

Properly, the title includes a comma: Through a Glass, Darkly. To see “through a glass” (a mirror) “darkly” is to have an obscure or imperfect vision of reality. The expression comes from 1 Corinthians 13:12, "For now we see through a glass, darkly."
