Highlander:The Official Store

from the review and synopsis of
 
Comes a Horseman

I am Methos. You live to serve me.

From his initial appearance on Highlander as Methos… the world's oldest man, Peter Wingfield kept adding shades of meaning to his lines that made the writers think… "There is more here than meets the eye." PW has also gone on the record as saying even he didn't always know what Methos was implying… but that it seemed "right" for his character.

Well in this episode… writers, and actors, finally reveal something about Methos' dark past… and the clues and innuendoes about what one learns in 5000 years, or who should sit in judgment on the crimes of immortals… suddenly come into clear focus.

While joking around about "Adam's" appearance on a game show, DM and Methos feel the presence of another immortal. True to character, Methos takes a powder and DM goes looking for the immortal. He finds him and recalls meeting Melvin Koren in 1867 Texas when DM was a scout with the Texas Rangers and Koren was a Commanchero whose gang of thugs criss-crossed the territory sowing death and destruction where they went. DM attempted to take Koren's head… but failed and ultimately lost track of him. Now Koren is back… and DM wants him.

Pursuing him, DM finds instead immortal psychic, and former lover Cassandra ("The Prophecy") who has become, since last we met her, a harridan focused on killing the immortal who first killed her… the immortal for whom she has had an overwhelming hatred for 3000 years… the only surviving member of… "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse."

"His name is Kronos… and he was one of them!" she spits angrily

"The horsemen were myth!" DM tells her… but Cassandra disagrees and tells him the story of her life, her people, and her death.

Meanwhile, Methos finds himself with a knife in his chest as Melvin Koren/ aka Kronos locates him… with the words that will live in Highlander lore: "Greetings, Brother!" It seems that Methos was once Kronos' right-hand man… his master planner, his companion in murder, rape, and general mayhem.

"I grew out of my angry adolescence long ago!" he tells Kronos to no avail. (Some adolescence! Methos was 2000 years old when he rode with Kronos!)

When Methos shows up to talk to DM about Kronos, Cassandra draws her sword and claims he is Methos… and she will have his head. It seems her intelligence was wrong and a second horseman lives. DM holds her back while Methos escapes.

Note: Cassandra's Watcher files a report at this time… she has overheard it all… and the Watchers now know Adam Pierson is Methos. This information is not in the episode… but is included on The Watcher Chronicles CD-ROM and on files included with the DVD's.
