** This seems proven in the show when Kalas recieved a vicious cut across his throat during a duel with Duncan in the 1920's. Seventy years later, Kalas' once-great voice is now reduced to a throaty rasp.



* In the first episode Connor tells Duncan someone should keep an eye on Richie when he witnesses a duel(Duncan agrees and it's how he ends up taking him in). When watching the show the first time it comes of as because he knows about immortals, but the meaning changes when watching it again after the second season episode where Richie becomes immortal. Duncan and Connor both knew Richie was pre-immortal and that's why Duncan took him in, so he could there to teach him if his immortality was awakened.

* Through the first season of the show, one might wonder how the authorities constantly miss so many headless bodies turning up with signs of destruction around them from the Quickening. The introduction of the Watchers explains this as (while not obviously stated), it's hinted the Watchers want to keep up TheMasquerade as much as Immortals do. Thus, it makes total sense that when they see a duel go down, a Watcher is quick to clean up as much of the evidence as possible to keep the existence of people dueling to the death quiet.

* It's worth noting that in spite of living through various wars and fighting many immortals Connor's body is in fine condition with no scars to speak of, yet the Kurgan sports a gnarly scar on his neck after his battle with Ramirez. Then you realize, with decapitation being the only way to kill an immortal, that the neck is their one and only weak spot. So wounds to their necks won't heal like the rest of their body.

* The reason why Ramirez, the centuries old Egyptian sounds Scottish is because, he and Connor and Heather are all actually speaking in Scottish/Gaelic/whatever Connor's native dialect is.

* In the season 1 finale, "The Hunters," Horton attacks Duncan with a taser in an attempt to immobilize him. But Duncan managed to fight through the voltage and pull the prongs out. The first time I saw this episode, I thought there would be no way he could do that, regardless of how tough he was, because tasers inhibit motor functions. He wouldn't have been able to move. A few years later, I read about the history of the development of taser technology. Around the time this episode was released (1993, I think) the high-powered tasers that inhibited motor function didn't exist yet (those didn't come out until 1998). It was actually very common for people on PCP, or with just a high tolerance for pain, to be able to fight off the older tasers because they were only designed to shock the attacker into submission... which is why the ones we have now use an electrical charge that's the same as the electrical signal the brain sends down to the body, shorting out all muscle control. Basically, if Horton had used one of the modern tasers, the show wouldn't have lasted more than one season.

* In the first movie, Connor does in fact follow Ramirez's advice on how to fight the Kurgan: he uses heart (Brenda saves his life), soul (by demonstrating courage and skill and care for others) and steel (he decapitates the Kurgan with Ramirez's 2500 year old sword). Made a great movie even better!
