** Was Simon Killian a bloodthirsty maniac who ignored the WWI Armistice because he wanted one more gigantic battle? Or did he honestly believe that anything less than a total defeat would leave the door open for [[World War 2 further bloodshed]] and was trying to prevent another war?



** Richie does get better over the course of the series. And the fans tend to agree that killing off Richie was the show's Jump the Shark moment.

** Otavio Consone used a high quality rapier with a wavy edge. This would result in cuts that were more painful and, assuming one survived the duel, more difficult to close and heal properly. [[EvilIsPetty This sums]] [[SmugSnake Consone up]] [[MasterSwordsman perfectly.]]

* GeniusBonus: A fair amount of thought was put into what sort of sword each Immortal would use.
** Kronos' broadsword was clearly decorated for maximum intimidation, with spikes on the handguard and pommel for additional damage during infighting.
** Steven Keane, a proudly English Immortal, used a British army saber.
** Otavio Consone used a high quality rapier with a wavy edge. This would result in cuts that were more painful and, assuming one survived the duel, more difficult to close and heal properly. [[EvilIsPetty This sums]] [[SmugSnake Consone up]] [[MasterSwordsman perfectly.]]
