  • What's going on when Immortals' swords spark during contact, during a fight?

    Every once in a while we'll see electric sparks flying off swords when they made even gentle contact in battle, between Immortals. What's going on there? Does the weapon an Immortal is holding somehow become "charged" with the wielder's inner Quickening/energies? Something else?

    I suppose that when 2 immortals fight to the death, their Quickenings somehow change state and anticipate the one of the opponent nearby.
    When the intensity of a fight increases, (metal) weaponry and maybe even other metal objects in the vicinity may get charged (like static electricity) as a result.
    So I think that sometimes both Quickenings come in contact with each other during a fight, creating the sparks.

      I have rewatched Highlander again. I think that the weapons are indeed infused with the Quickening of its user.
      It would explain the sparking and the extreme durability of the weapons and also why some immortals can easily cut through concrete, plumbing, electrical cables & scaffolding,
      but not through the pipes of staves that are used in defence by an immortal.

      It has as a consequence that breaking an immortals weapon is kind of a big deal.

        A conduit for the power that will flow when one Immortal loses their head! I like it.

          Also why the Kurgans sword can be assembled and used like that. The Quickening infuses the weapon.
