It’s a testament to Peter Wingfield’s acting, I think, that there are a lot of layers even to something this simple: not just fear, but suspicion and a surprisingly high level of vulnerability, like this is one of the moments you see Methos at his rawest, when he’s rapidly calculating which of the available options will give him the highest chances of survival.
Childhood friends who don’t understand that they are supposed to
hate each other. Family betrayal. An adventure that leads to so much
more than a happy reunion. An unexpected love that turns the world
upside down. Secrets and lies that threaten to destroy everything. Is it
possible to get your happy ending?
A/N: I know I said this would be out tomorrow, but I got excited.
“So tell me, what news is there of my father? Have you found out where he lives?” You turned your face to the sky and closed your eyes to mask your nervousness, letting the warmth of the noon sun wash over your skin.
Methos is for sure my favorite character from the whole Highlander franchise. How can he be 5000 years and stay so aloof, charming and perfect? Even after all those thousands of years he rode with Kronos, Silas and Caspian…
His scene with Alexa is one of the few where my little heart just melted, it was so cute, and he got me at “Because the alternative is unthinkable”
“I killed. But I didn’t just kill fifty, I didn’t kill a hundred. I killed a thousand. I killed TEN thousand! And I was good at it. And it wasn’t for vengeance, it wasn’t for greed. It was because… I liked it. Cassandra was nothing. Her village was nothing. Do you know who I was? I was Death. Death — Death on a horse. When mothers warned their children that the monster would get them, that monster was me. I was the nightmare that kept them awake at night. Is that what you want to hear?!”
There should have been a series dedicated to this character, it was a goldmine! And what did they do? Highlander: The Raven. I mean, what the flying fuck.
Anyway, love Methos, love Peter Wingfield and it was the best part of Highlander.
Well, that and the Kalas episodes. But that’s for another day.
Am I the only obsessed with the Highlander Series? I thought I was a dork for loving it as a kid but now that I’m rewatching I still love it! Now if only Netflix would add the 90’s reboot of the Untouchables.
