      Also, I had the impression the Prize in the first film was whatever the victor wanted it to be.
      Then how do you explain the Alec Hill arc, William Culbraith's Quickening and Jacob Kell asking Connor about wanting to be inside him?

      It's fairly explicitly stated imo.

      Maybe all knowledge of all immortals become accessible when an immortal wins the prize?

      If the Prize is what the victor wants it to be then more movies would fit together.

        That would make for an interesting immortal. One who seeks to defeat specific targets in order to access their gained knowledge. Did Kane find a way to complete his training before he took Nakano's head?

        HL-TAS somewhat expanded on this topic as well although Quentin's never showed any comprehension of the Quickenings he gained.
        Cross-topic: Because this discussion touches on a similar concept

          That's what I think it is, or should be.

          If there's only two Immortals left, each one would have about half of all of the Immortals there ever were. Perhaps when there is only one, that information and "data" becomes completely unlocked to them, imbuing the victor with... maybe not prescience or omniscience... but certainly in full control of all the amassed Quickenings (even the second, third fourthhand ones) within them.

            I consider The Series and Endgame, Earth 2, and Quickening and SFV apocryphal. The Source is just garbage :-P

              So the Prize is either dissociative identity disorder or schizophrenia?

              A solid basis for longtime fandom.


              BTW: The One might be a highlander movie...

                Of a controllable kind... maybe. Or maybe you just become the amalgamation of all of those Immortals as a person... with computer-like access to all of the individual memories, too.

                  Assimilation into the collective as a Prize? I doubt that's what immortals think they are probably chasing...
