Blood of Kings 089: CIMOLI'S CHOICE - Promises, Part 1: The Retrospective.
While Norman was off in Las Vegas participating in competition sword fighting at CombatCon, his Blood of Kings co-host KEVIN, recruits fellow Highlander expert and the main editor for Blood of Kings...MIKE SELLERS.
Rachel Macleod: "I think a man of honor lives with what ever he does."
Kevin and Mike discuss why the HIGHLANDER TV SHOW season four episode...PROMISES, is Mike's CIMOLI'S CHOICE! Mike goes into great detail why this episode is one his favorites. Is Duncan a Hero, or a Hypocrite? The episode PROMISES challenge Duncan Macleod's honor, pride and vanity.
Duncan saves the life of President Hamad, a visiting politician, whose assistant is Immortal Kassim. But it turns out Kassim was arranging the assassination of the cruel Hamad to allow Nasir, descendant of the Moorish kings Kassim served, to take over the government. Now Kassim wants Duncan to kill Hamad in order to repay an old debt that Duncan owes him. It's a promise that Duncan struggles to keep.
To quote Highlander Script Coordinator and Associate Creative Consultant, Gillian Horvath: "The underlying theme in Promises is, just because Duncan is the hero, it doesn't mean he's always right, and smart in every situation. Just because Duncan dose something, it doesn't means it's the right thing to do."
Also, we discuss the return of fan favorite character Rachel MacLeod (Kristin Minter), who appears in her 3rd and final episode of the Highlander TV Series. She previously appeared in the Adrian Paul directed episode Homeland. She also appeared in the previous episode Deliverance, where she assisted in helping Duncan recover from the effects of his Dark Quickening.
So please join Kevin and Mike for PART ONE of a two part deep dive RETROSPECTIVE... into PROMISES!
