HLS3: Finale II  
Highlander Season Three

Finale II, Air Date: May 1995

As Christine tells her tale to the newspaper publisher, MacLeod and Amanda, knowing their world is about to end, finally admit they love each other. Kalas kills Christine and the publisher and steals the computer disk before they have a chance to spread the story. Kalas offers MacLeod a deal -- MacLeod offers up his head or the contents of the disk are made public. Dawson and the Watchers attempt to find Kalas, but this only results in more dead Watchers.

Methos tries to talk MacLeod out of it, but MacLeod agrees to fight Kalas on top of the Eiffel Tower. Kalas is defeated and the resulting Quickening, amplified by the Tower, sends a power surge that disrupts every computer in the vicinity -- including Kalas'. The information on the disk is destroyed and Immortals and Watchers maintain their anonymity.

I love this show so much. Methos is Adam and Adam is a adorable. Love the red pants. And Amanda is in this too. Okay - Kalas is okay - love his crazy partner. Christine needs to get real. No, wait - she's dead now *g*.

Methos is in it. Love the Methos Joe line, "no, he was saving you", then the adorable body hug. Need we say anything more?

MY COMMENTS: This is a great jammed-packed, action/adventure/romance episode. Joe gets into a fist fight, Methos waxes amusingly philosophical and asks, “Why would I tell the truth?” Amanda and Duncan dance, physically and emotionally, each edging around the notion that they really love each other, but with neither wanting to do it in a way that creates unreasonable expectations about the future. Duncan is tempted to self-sacrifice, but ultimately follows Methos’ advice, figuring that - as he has always said - life has value, even his own. Kalas is a good villain, but Nino kind of steals his scenes. The flashback is among the more memorable in the series, with that wild, crazy fight scene generating some real chuckles. Great production values throughout the show, with only a few serious glitches (like Duncan and Amanda’s before-the-battle scene somehow being during the day). *All* the actors looked really good, and the ensemble worked together extremely well to make for a very satisfying episode. Is it among my favorites? Well, it doesn’t really show us anything new about them, other than to have Duncan and Amanda admit (sort of) what we all knew all along, and it doesn’t move the characters into new and different places than what we have seen before, and those are the episodes that really get me excited.

But it is so much better than 99% of the television we see today, I have no complaints.
