Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast
Episode 85: The Methuselah Trilogy Part 5: METHUSELAH'S GIFT - The Retrospective
Welcome to Part FIVE of what Kevin and Norman have "officially" dubbed "THE METHUSELAH TRILOGY"; the three episodes from the Highlander Television Series that revolve around the mysterious and magical crystals of the legendary METHUSELAH STONE! Our retrospective and commentaries for these episodes begin with Season Two's LEGACY, and continue with the Season Four episodes: TIMELESS and METHUSELAH'S GIFT.
On this episode of Blood of Kings we continue our look into the Methuselah Stone legend with a RETROSPECTIVE of the Season 4 Episode...METHUSELAH'S GIFT. This is actually KEVIN's favorite HIGHLANDER episode of all time. WHY you may ask? It doesn't have the best swordfight in Highlander...it doesn't have a Quickening...it doesn't have an evil immortal in it...it's not a 2-parter or a Season Finale. BUT...it dose have THE BIG THREE immortals...DUNCAN, AMANDA and METHOS! So why is this KEVIN's favorite episode of all time?
Well...you will just have to listen and find out! But here's a hint, it has to do with Kevin's favorite theme in Highlander: The bond and loyalty between immortal friends, that is tested through trials, trust...and love.
Methos -"You understand nothing. Three weeks ago, we were standing on a beach on Santorini watching the sun rise on the Mediterranean. Now, she is lying in a hospital in Switzerland breathing through a tube. You think it takes courage to do what we do? Face another Immortal with a sword knowing only one of you will live? You try being her! You try living one year knowing that your time is running out, knowing that when it comes to the final fight, however much you train, whatever tricks you have, you still lose! That's the way it is for them. So little time for them to see anything or do anything."
Amanda - "I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry."
