- Oh, I will.
After you're dead.
Talk's cheap.
Guess who won.
- So how's my love line doing? - I see you are very romantic.
Yeah, well, I've had my moments.
You attract women not only of beauty but of intelligence.
You're very good at this.
So you see any attraction for me in the very near future? Not likely.
I sense you're not looking to have a serious relationship.
No, but I can live with frivolous.
So, you see anything you like? Yeah, you know, I look at you sometimes and I realize how beautiful you are.
Maybe we should go home? Maybe.
Hey guys, I would like you to meet Hello, I'm Greta, I am the seventh daughter of the seventh son.
I see things that other people don't even look for.
As I was saying, this is Greta.
- Would you care for some wine, Greta? - Thank you.
As I was saying, a few dollars spent on Greta's gifts could be the best investment of your life.
- The wrap alone is worth the investment.
- No, Mac.
Trust me.
She has real talent.
I can see that just by looking at her.
Come on, it would be fun to have my palm read.
Only if she tells you what you want to hear.
I see you are a woman of taste.
- That was a rush - Are you okay? Yeah.
Where were we? What the hell was that about? What's wrong? It's not big deal, Tess.
She's just having a psychic experience, right? - That's it, I must've I mean, I did.
- Greta, I was kidding.
- Hey, don't worry.
- You have to get the hell out of this city.
What are you talking about? Trouble, and you're right in the middle of it.
I think we've heard enough.
Thanks.
Hey, come on, guys.
We're all having fun, here.
I mean, this is just a joke, right? Look, I saw what I saw.
I think this is for real.
I'm sure it is.
Let's go.
I know this sounds crazy as hell.
But I saw swords.
- It's okay.
Thanks for the reading.
- Come on.
Don't let it bother you.
She seemed so upset.
What about the swords? How could she know about that? Well, maybe it was a coincidence, or maybe she really did have a psychic experience and caught a glimpse of our life together.
- She scared me.
- Hey, Tess.
Nothing is written in stone.
Whatever she saw or didn't see, we decide our future.
And it's whatever we want it to be.
Hold me.
I love you, Duncan.
I love you, too, sweetheart.
- You bastard! - What was that for? Give me that.
- Why? - I am not a whore! - What did I do? - Roman! What did I do? - Roman! - What is this about? Well, I don't understand women.
She's crazy.
She's Carmen.
Carmen! - Roman! - What is it? MacLeod, he used me.
He lied to me.
He said he would marry me.
- I will marry you.
- Liar! - I saw it in your palm.
- What are you doing? You will have hundreds of women, but you will never marry.
Not me, not anyone.
Is this true? Give him a knife.
This is crazy.
- You have destroyed the honor of my family.
- What on earth are you talking about? - You raped my sister.
- What? You will marry her, now.
Roman.
I love your sister, but no one's going to force me to marry anyone.
Then you will die.
Roman, I'm your friend.
Carmen Go, MacLeod.
MacLeod! You will bury many women but you will marry none.
You will always be alone.
Do you hear me? Alone! Let's get married.
- What do you mean, "married"? - I mean married as in married.
You mean as in a proposal? You mean as in, will you marry me married? Is this better? Will you marry me? - Will you marry me? - Get up.

- All right! - What do you think? - All right! Al right! Yes! - Yes? Yes! - I'll marry you.
Why now? - What are you looking at? - Probably nothing.
I'll be right back.
- What's going on? Why he's just taken off? - Richie, Duncan just asked me to marry him.
- He what? - He proposed to me.
- For real? - Yeah.
- Just now? - Uhu.
Why? Well, no, no, Tess.

I know that he loves and all but I mean after all this time, it seems a little strange, don't you think? - Well, no.
Not to me.
- Well, congratulations.
Did you ever think What if we had never met? What if you didn't jump in that boat? What if Don't drive yourself crazy.
Where would you be now? Where would I be? Give up.
Where would you be? - Well - Well I don't know.
I can't even imagine a life where we're not together.
Do you think there's such a thing as fate? Something that drew us together? I think what drew us together was you, your face, your eyelashes, your hair, your ears - My whole head? - And everything inside.
But most of all, your heart.
Duncan It's got to be funny opening the store again tomorrow? So, is this going to be a traditional wedding or what? What do you mean? I mean, have you thought about who's going to give you away? Come on, Richie, give me a break.
See, I was actually kind of hoping that Mac would ask me to be his best man.
I wouldn't have it any other way.
- All right.
Cheers! - Cheers! Cheers! Tess Mac, could you give me a hand here for a second? Mac? A simple no would have worked.
Can I help you? Richie What do you want? - Take whatever you want.
- I will.
Tessa? Richie! What happened? Mac, a guy came in here and zap me in the head - What guy? - I don't know, a big guy, - How did he look like? - blond hair.
- Where is Tessa? - I don't know.
- Mac, I'm sorry.
- It's not your fault, it's not your fault.
I just have a feeling I've just been set up.
- What do you need me for? - Bait.
But he'll fight anyway if that's all you want! Maybe that's the way Immortals do it, but I have to be a little more careful.
- You're a watcher.
- Oh, she know about us.
Yes, I know about you but I don't understand you.
What in God's name do you think you're doing? My friends would call it saving the human race.
But I do it for other reasons.
I get off on it.
- Why Duncan? - Because he's a freak.
- He's a good, decent man! - He's not a man.
He's not human.
He's an it.
I think it's time we spoke to him, don't you? This is MacLeod.
Listen to me carefully, you son of a bitch.
If anything, I mean anything happens to Tessa Wait, don't tell me, I'm a dead man, right? If you're lucky.
How'd I guess? Don't worry, buddy, you'll get your shot.
And to show you I'm not such a bad guy, I'm gonna let you talk to her.
- Mac - Tess, are you all right? - I'm fine.
Don't come, it's a trap.
- Where are you? Of course it's a trap, but that won't matter now, will it? I'll be in touch.
Mac, look what I've just found.
Isn't this the earring that Tessa was wearing today? I just need five minutes of your time.
- Something happened to her, didn't it? - Tessa was kidnapped last night.
Then what are you doing here? Shouldn't you be with the police or something? I need your help.
Mister, I do an act.
A little theater for the paying customers.
- My mother had the gift, but I never did.
- You do now.
Look, last night was my first time.
My only time.
It's not gonna happen again.
Please.
I'm sorry.
I'm blank.
Nothing.
The only thing I get is a picture of the pizza I had for lunch.
Try again.
I do this and then I'm out of it, right? You go away? Far away? - What did you see? - Nothing.
What did you see? Talk to me.
All right.
I saw her.
Your friend.
She's a prisoner or something.
And there was a guy with a mask.
He was swinging a sword.
What kind of weird stuff are you people into? Is she okay? Can you tell me something about the location? - No.
- Is there anything, anything else at all? There was a wall, with animal heads on it.
Dying art.
People just aren't killing things like they used to.
That's too bad.
It's hell on the fur business too.
My cousin Mel is a furrier uptown.
- That's nice for him.
- Nice? It's terrible.
He's in hock up to his ears.
Nobody's buying nothing and when they do some wacko starts throwing eggs and garbage at them.
The man I'm looking for is tall, blond If God didn't want woman to wear fur coats why'd he invent mink.
- About the blond man - What does he do, birds or beasts? - What? - What'd he hunt? Ducks? Quail? Big game.
There was this guy in.
But he was bald.
I got a great memory for animals.
But people Thanks anyway.
- Did you get it? - Yeah, everything you asked for.
- Something to drink? - Yeah, thanks.
- So, what's next? - I'm not sure.
I just killed the person that could have led me to her.
Don't ask me to explain.
There's got to be something in here.
I can't believe Greta called all this.
Are you beginning to believe in this psychic stuff? I don't know, Richie.
You know, sometimes just because something can't be proven now doesn't mean it'll never be proven.
People used to believe that the Earth was the center of the universe.
A couple years ago I would've never believed that Immortals could exist.
So, never been married before, have you, Mac? No.
Well, I guess without being able to have kids there's not much point, right? - Something like that, yeah.
- Then why now? I mean, I know it's probably none of my business and - basically I shouldn’t be asking - That's twice you're right.
Yeah.
Sorry.
It's okay.
I'm sorry myself.
Look, it might be just because of what Greta said.
Or maybe it's just the thought of really losing her.
- Mac, don't worry.
We'll get her back.
- I've been around a long time, Richie.
Four hundred years, I'd say that's quite a bit of time, yeah.
Yeah, but sometimes I feel even older than that.
I've seen so many things.
I've fought so many battles.
People become part of your life and then they they just die.
This all stays with you, Richie.
You have to live with it.
Their hopes, their dreams, their pain, their love.
Tessa makes me feel so young.
Every time I see her it's like the first time.
Every time I touch her.
Sounds to me, like you're in love.
Yeah.
Come on, I want to get back to the store.
We got to be by a phone.
Right.
Better eat.
You'll be here for a while.
Why are you waiting? Why don't you just get it over with? The longer MacLeod has to wait, the edgier he becomes.
An edgy man makes mistakes.
- Maybe he won't come.
- He'll come as soon as I tell him to.
- Yeah? - Billy is dead.
Macleod killed him.
Your "good and decent man" just killed my friend.
You have no one to blame but yourself.
Bitch! Billy really believed in this crap.
He was a soldier.
Soldier? You're trying to kill an innocent man! That isn't war, it's murder! Anything? I thought you wanted no part of this.
I didn't, but I can't get it out of my head.
I keep having these visions, these images.
It's making me crazy.
Did you see anything new? - I saw you.
- What was I doing? I don't know.
I mean, all I get is bits and pieces.
It's not like I put in a tape and watch the movie.
What do you think I was doing? Fighting with somebody.
The guy in the mask, I think.
Look, this is all new to me.
I read palms, make a few bucks.
It's a gig, not a lifestyle.
Read my palm.
- What good will that do? - Please.
My God, you've got a lifeline the size of the Mississippi! Wait a minute, how old are you? - What are you? - What did you see? Halloween.
Guys in costumes, sword fights, This big old house And then it all just went black.
- What do you mean, the visions stopped? - No! It was different than that.
It was pitch black, you know, like like someone turned out the lights or something.
- But blacker.
- Was it night? But, what color were the walls? I mean, I need details.
What details? Black is black.
Was there anything else of Tessa or the man holding her? - No.
- There must have been something.
What do you want from me? You want me just to make up something so you feel better? No, I want you to give me something I can use! I'm sorry.
I know you're doing your best.
Is there anything else? What about the house? - It's an old Tudor, I think.
- Was there anything special about it? - No.
I mean, it's probably nothing.
- What? The windows of the house.
Some of them were colored glass.
- Look, I told you, it's not much.
- No, it's more than I had.
Wait, this is my home number.
- I won't sleep until this is over.
- Thanks.
- Let me know what happens, ok? - Ok.
- Did he call? - No.
Mac, what's he waiting for? - It's his game.
- What are you doing? Looking for the Tudor house that Greta saw.
Mac, there are tons of Tudor houses in this city.
Some are registered as historic landmarks, so Sure.
Dozens.
Yeah, but not all of them have colored glass windows.
What are you doing in there? Stop! Stop, please! You have to help me! - Lady, you're drunk or something? - Please, help me! I still need you! - Hello? - Is that you, Richie? - Who is this? - Still stunned? Why don't you come find out? Funny man.
Let me talk to MacLeod.
- He's not here right now.
- That's too bad.
Give him a message for me.
You tell him the girl's at and tell him that I'll be expecting him.
That was very good before.
I won't underestimate you again.
- It's not me you have to worry about.
- We'll see.
- Mac? - What the hell? What are you doing here? He called just after you left.
He's in that house.
I know.
I want you outside.
Tessa's the only one I want to worry about in there.
Right? Right.
- Right? - Right.
Wrong.
So, he brought the posse.
Welcome, Highlander.
You got here sooner than I thought.
- Where is Tessa? - Here.
Who are you? Very impressive.
It's only a matter of time, Highlander.
- Mac! Thank God! - Out of the way! - You all right? - I'm fine.
- I'm fine too, if anyone cares.
- I thought I told you stay outside.
So, sue me.
Take Tessa home in the car.
I'll take your bike.
I want to find out a little more about this guy and his friends.
- Don't be too long.
I love you.
- I love you too.
- Tess - Thanks.
Come on, let's go.
Nice car.
How about a ride? Some other time.
Let's go.
Now.
Give me your keys.
I want your rings, wallet, necklace.
Come on! - Okay! Okay! - Please - It's okay! - Come on! Hurry up! Come on! All right! It's all you got? You got more! Where's your purse? In the car? I have no a purse.
I swear.
Only only the rings.
You lying bitch! "I close my eyes" "only for a moment, and the moment's gone" "All my dreams" Um I didn't want to miss the tour.
Is this the way you always make an entrance? - I want to make an impression.
- You have.
Bravo.

Damn your Gathering! Damn your whole race! God! I’m not your enemy.
Maybe I want someone I can grow old with.
You know I wanted the same thing.
To grow old with you.
- I love you, Duncan.
- I love you, too, sweetheart.
"Don't hang on" "nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky" "It slips away" "and all your money won't another minute buy" "Dust in the wind" "all we are is dust in the wind" "all we are is dust in the wind" "Dust in the wind" "everything is dust in the wind" "everything is dust in the wind" You're one of us, now.
Sell it.
