'Shadows'

Highlander Season Three

Shadows, Air Date: November 1994

MacLeod is tormented by visions of his own death, beheaded by a mysterious dark-hooded figure. Anne tries to convince him to seek medical help, but instead he turns to his old friend Garrick, who has spent centuries studying the mind. MacLeod saw Garrick in the 17th century when MacLeod barely escaped being burned as a witch. What MacLeod didn't know was that Garrick was unable to escape as well.

Garrick convinces MacLeod that the dark-hooded figure is a racial memory that haunts all Immortals and that the way to defeat it is to not fight it, to accept it for what it is. When MacLeod, haggard and exhausted, faces the specter for the last time, puts down his sword and refuses to fight it, the figure goes for MacLeod's head -- until at the last moment MacLeod realizes the figure is Garrick, seeking his revenge after all these years. In the tag, Anne, frustrated that MacLeod won't open up to her despite their intimate relationship, leaves him.
