When Duncan comes for Kalas, his nemesis escapes into a cloud of steam. Determined to finish Kalas, Duncan seeks Joe's help. Kalas owns a nightclub and Duncan "persuades" the bartender to tell him where Kalas has gone.
Kalas has captured his own Watcher and is looking for information on "Methos", the legendary oldest Immortal. After Kalas kills one of the Watchers' historians, Donald Salzer, Dawson sends Duncan to a researcher on the Methos Chronicle, Adam Pierson.
Duncan is stunned to find that Pierson is Methos. Kalas confronts Methos, who escapes and sets up Duncan to take his head, realising that he cannot handle Kalas, but Duncan could.
Duncan refuses, but when he confronts Kalas at Methos' apartment, their fight is interrupted by the police, who arrest Kalas for Salzer's murder after Adam Pierson identifies Kalas.
Before he vanishes from Paris, Methos tells Duncan that he couldn't take the chance on Kalas winning. In the two part season Finale, Amanda arrives at the barge, being very, very nice to Duncan, which always arouses his suspicions, "Finale".
Eventually, she tells him that she broke Kalas out of jail, to kill him, but that Kalas got away. Kalas, using the thugs employed by his cellmate, wastes no time in coming for MacLeod and, as Duncan and Amanda try to find him, finds Maurice, who Duncan rescues in the nick of time and sends out of Paris.
Kalas captures Amanda, intending to use her as bait, but she escapes. A new problem arises, when Joe Dawson and Methos arrive at the barge.
Christine Salzer, the widow of Donald Salzer, the historian Kalas murdered, has found a database created for the Watchers and intends to give it to the newspapers.
Dawson tries to stop her, even trying to shoot her, but MacLeod prevents him from becoming a murderer, taking the bullet himself.
As the Immortals think that their secret will be on CNN, Kalas intercepts Christine and kills her, taking the vital disk.
He uses the information to find the European head of the Watchers and kills him. He gives Duncan a choice — surrender to him or Kalas will broadcast the information on the disk.
Watchers and Immortals combine to hunt Kalas down. Methos tells Duncan to fight Kalas. Amanda and Duncan, faced with the destruction of their world, finally admit their feelings for each other openly.
Duncan faces Kalas on the top of the Eiffel Tower and takes his enemy's head. The Quickening of such a powerful Immortal surges through the steelwork of the tower and overloads the Paris power grid, plunging the city into darkness and, in the process, blowing up Kalas' computer and destroying the disk.
After celebrating Duncan's victory over Kalas and remembering Paul and Fitzcairn, Joe and Methos leave Duncan and Amanda alone to work out how much of what they said to each other they really want to take back.
With Kalas dead, MacLeod is free to return to his normal life and resumes his interest in antiques, until one night he sees a bracelet in a private showing at a dealer's, a bracelet he thought long buried.
Shadowed by a curious Joe Dawson, he returns to his native Scotland for the first time in two hundred years to return it to the grave of his first love, Debra Campbell.
Once in Glenfinnan, he is greeted with hostility by Rachel MacLeod, the local innkeeper, as the village is beset once again by mysterious murders.
With the villagers recounting the legend of Duncan MacLeod, who rose from the dead to claim his father's sword and kill the Viking raider, Kanwulf, Rachel slowly comes to trust Duncan as the legend plays itself out again and, this time, Duncan make sure he takes the Viking's head and Quickening before leaving Glenfinnan at peace.
The season also saw the friendship of Joe and Duncan temporally end. But mid season saw Duncan like never before as an evil immortal after being affected by the Dark Quickening which corrupts him leading him to turn on his friends Richie and Joe.
In the episode Deliverence, Duncan with the help of Methos is able to overcome the evil inside him. The cliffhanger ending to Season Four starts with a telephone call that brings Joe Dawson to Paris, in the belief that MacLeod is dead.
Standing on the Quai, he is kidnapped in front of Duncan, who finds out from Methos that Joe is on trial for his life before the Watcher tribunal.
Watchers are being killed across Europe and the Watchers believe that Joe's revelation of their secret is the root cause, unaware that it is the consequences of their own hypocrisy and double standards that is visiting destruction upon them.
Blind to their own arrogance and willingness to interfere in the Game, they ignore Duncan's pleas for clemency. As they prepare to execute Dawson, it is they who are judged as a mysterious Immortal guns down the Watcher hierarchy and flees past Duncan, who arrives in time to find Dawson wounded and unconscious in the final scene.
After the events in "Judgment Day", the Watchers abandon all pretense of not interfering in the Game. Believing that MacLeod is responsible for the slaughter of the Watchers, Jack Shapiro, their head, orders his death and, at the beginning of "One Minute To Midnight", Duncan is trying to survive their manhunt.
Believing the only way to avoid a war between the Watchers and the Immortals is to convince Shapiro of his innocence, MacLeod goes to their battle headquarters, only to find that the Immortal who is the real killer has beaten him to the punch.
The bitter irony of the situation is revealed — Jacob Galati is hunting the Watchers after Horton killed his Immortal wife, Irena, during his rampage across Europe in that ended when he killed Darius in Paris, "The Hunters".
Jacob refuses to believe that the Watchers are not evil, but agrees to meet Joe, who has been nursed back to health by Methos.
Joe won't meet Jacob though and helps the Watchers to capture him. Duncan is forced to stand by whilst the Watchers murder Jacob and is devastated to receive his friend's Quickening.
Methos rejects Joe and the Watchers for what they have become, but MacLeod returns to confront Shapiro, to put an end to the killing.
When Shapiro refuses, Joe belatedly realizes that his friend has become another Horton and helps Duncan to secure peace with the Watchers. Wanting nothing to do with Paris, Duncan returns to Seacouver.
There, he finds the Immortal Cassandra waiting for him. She is being hunted by Roland Kantos, one of her students, and she tells Duncan of a "Prophecy" that he will defeat great evil.
Kantos relies on the hypnotic power of his voice to defeat his opponents, but Duncan, after nearly losing his head to Kantos' tricks, defeats the mesmerist by plugging his ears.
Joe comes to the dojo and gets the cold shoulder from Duncan, but before he leaves, he tells MacLeod that Richie is in town, "The End Of Innocence".
Duncan tries to make his peace with Richie, but the young Immortal is still plagued by nightmares after Duncan almost killed him in "Something Wicked" and warns Duncan to stay away from him.
When Richie challenges and kills Carter Wellan, his mentor Haresh Clay comes for Richie, breaking his sword.
Richie is arrested trying to steal another one from a museum and is bailed out by Duncan, who warns him that Clay is as good as they come and gives him a sword.
The two Immortals work out their differences and, now acting as equals, it is Duncan who asks Richie to stand aside as he avenges his humiliation at Clay's hands when they first met and takes his head.
In "Archangel" Duncan accidentally kills Richie thinking he is a demon he is destined to face. The series dealt with the Ahriman story arc in the first two episodes.
A majority of the season dealt with Duncan meeting some female Immortals. The producers were experimenting to look for a replacement to Duncan for the planned spin-off Highlander: The Raven.
Highlander: The Series originated in Europe. Lambert knew that Highlander producers Peter Davis and Bill Panzer wanted to make a Highlander series and connected them with Charret.
The French leading production company Gaumont Television bought the rights to the series to have it produced in syndication in America with a local crew, a ground-breaking move at the time.
The executive producers were Bill Panzer , Peter S. Davis, Gaumont Television president Christian Charret  and Gaumont co-production chief Marla Ginsburg.
Kevin Droney and Philip John Taylor were supervising producers at the beginning of the season; from the seventh episode onwards, David Abramowitz became supervising producer instead of Taylor.
Executives in charge of production were Marc du Pontavice and Denis Leroy. Scripts were contributed by both staff and freelance writers, Brian Clemens among the latter.
Brent-Carl Clackson was line producer on the Vancouver segment, from episode one to thirteen. When production moved to Paris, Clackson was succeeded by Patrick Millet with the title of production manager for episodes fourteen to twenty-two.
The regular directors were Thomas J. Wright , Jorge Montesi and Ray Austin. The fencing coach was Bob Anderson , who coined for himself the title of Master of Swords.
At the beginning of Season 3, F. Braun McAsh became the Swordmaster and choreographed the remaining four seasons and the fourth movie, Endgame.
The opening theme was " Princes of the Universe " from the album A Kind of Magic by Queen ; incidental music was composed by Roger Bellon. Christopher Lambert did not wish to do television, though he agreed that there should be a series, and originally Connor MacLeod was to be the protagonist.
Lambert agreed to appear in the pilot and pass the torch. They were only able to afford him for three days of filming. Lambert declined to do any future episodes.
Alastair Duncan , Anthony De Longis , Alexis Denisof , Geraint Wyn Davies , Gary Daniels , and James Horan were all in the running for the lead role.
S, Canada and Europe for the lead role. Originally, the actor was a tough sell to the investors because he was an unknown though he played Russian ballet dancer Kolya in The Colbys.
However, the producers felt that he would appeal to both male and female fans of the franchise. Paul reminded them of a young Sean Connery. Paul said in an interview that he was drawn to the series because it had so many layers: history, romance, adventure and spirituality.
In an interview he said that he was the very first person to audition for the role in Los Angeles. Canadian born French musician Mylene Farmer was offered the role of Amanda but she turned down the role.
Although Immortals are scattered around the world, the events of the series are most notably located in Vancouver , British Columbia and Paris , France.

Eine seltsame Kraft geht von der Leiche auf ihn über und zerstört dabei Teile der Tiefgarage. MacLeod versucht zu fliehen, wird jedoch von der Polizei verhaftet; sein Schwert kann er vorher aber in der Garage verstecken.
Daraufhin wird er von seinem eigenen Clan und sogar von seiner Geliebten Kate bezichtigt, mit dem Teufel im Bunde zu stehen. Ein Mob fordert seine Verbrennung, doch einer seiner Verwandten, Angus MacLeod, erreicht, dass Connor lediglich verbannt wird.
Später lebt Connor mit seiner Frau Heather abgeschieden in einem halbverfallenen Broch mitten in den Highlands. Mit dem ersten gewaltsamen Tod wird die Unsterblichkeit bei diesen Auserwählten wirksam; fortan altern sie nicht mehr, können keine Kinder zeugen und nur durch Enthauptung getötet werden.
Connor soll daher in die Lage versetzt werden, sich gegen ihn zu verteidigen. Daraufhin verlässt Connor Schottland und bereist in den folgenden Jahren die Welt, bis er nach Amerika kommt, wo er sich niederlässt, um dort den letzten Kampf auszufechten, denn inzwischen sind nur noch wenige Unsterbliche übrig.
Zurück im New York der Gegenwart: Die Polizei kann MacLeod, jetzt ein Antiquitätenhändler, den Mord an Fasil nicht nachweisen, obwohl er noch argwöhnisch von ihr beobachtet wird.
Von der Mordwaffe konnten nur Splitter gefunden werden; diese wecken jedoch die Neugier der Pathologin Brenda Wyatt, zusätzlich Autorin über die metallurgische Geschichte antiker Schwertschmiedekunst.
Connor gesteht Brenda letztlich sein Geheimnis, und beide beginnen eine Liebesaffäre. Derweil taucht auch Kurgan in New York auf, und schnell kommen er und Connor miteinander in Konflikt.
Kurgan tötet einen weiteren Unsterblichen und benutzt dann Brenda als Geisel, um die finale Auseinandersetzung mit Connor zu erzwingen.
Ein langer Kampf zwischen den letzten beiden Unsterblichen entbrennt, den MacLeod gewinnt. Brenda und er ziehen sich nach Schottland zurück.
Als Preis erhält Connor MacLeod die Macht, die Gedanken der Menschen lesen zu können. Die Vorlage zum Film lieferte ein Drehbuch des Filmstudenten Gregory Widen.
Produziert wurde der Film von Peter Davis und William Panzer, die auch heute noch die Rechte an Highlander innehaben.
