LEGACY
When her mentor Rebecca is killed, Amanda is determined to avenge the death, even though it means going up against the formidable Immortal Luther, and very possibly losing her head. She comes to Mac for a final fling before her likely death, and when he discovers that she's after Luther, he tries to take the battle on himself, feeling he has a better chance of survival. Together they discover that Luther is hunting the pieces of an ancient crystal that Rebecca divided among her students, believing that the whole crystal will make him invulnerable and ensure that he is the Last Immortal.

Trivia
bulletEagle-eyed fans of James Bond will notice Nadia Cameron's turn as Beth Davidson in Tomorrow Never Dies. She most recently appeared on British TV as Florence (credited as Nadia Cameron-Blakey) in the opening episode of BBC1's A Most Mysterious Murder.
bulletThere's a follow-up to this story - featuring Nadia Cameron in flashback - in the fourth season. It's D16, 'Methusaleh's Gift'.
bulletFor the second time we are shown flashbacks that precede Duncan's birth (the first was in the previous episode B18, 'Pharaoh's Daughter').

Verdict
Another cracking episode - and Amanda finally gets some real meat to add to her character.
