    Episode 45: "The Samurai"

    A good flashback story. A unsatisfactory modern-day story, complete with weak acting and unnecessary filler. The final fight was unimpressive, and the Quickening was more like the Splashening. Taken as a whole, the episode was mediocre, but the Japan flashbacks really made it worth watching.

      Episode 46: "Line of Fire"

      Great flashback story, especially when Who Wants To Live Forever comes in. Weak, predictable modern subplot with Richie. The final fight/quickening was so embarrassing that it moved this from one of the better episodes in the series to one of the more absurd. As with The Samurai, it's only worthwhile for the flashbacks.

        Episode 47: "The Revolutionary"

        Duncan plays moral judge again and kills yet another old friend. I don't remember Karros saying, "Hey Duncan, do you want to butt into my affairs and kill me?" To be fair, Dr. Anne manages to be even more devoid of redeeming qualities than Duncan. Overall, dull and unremarkable.

          The Samurai - Although prior to this, it was indicated Duncan received his sword from Connor, I enjoyed the story of how Duncan came into possession of his katana as well as learning some of his early martial arts.

          Line of Fire - The story was OK. Kern was a particularly brutal immortal. The confession scene was amusing.

          The Revolutionary - I really like this episode and have viewed it many times. Karros makes a good bad guy. I think the key to a successful bad guy is, no matter what they do, they feel they are in the right and therefor are justified in their behavior. This is a good case of that. The fight at the end is good and this is one of the few episodes we get the tag line "There can be only one".
          "It's Rock & Roll. If you aren't breaking some sort of law, then you are doing it wrong." - me, answering a bandmate's question of what would happen if someone called the law on us for playing too loud at an outdoor show.
