The world has fallen

into chaos and decay.

There is no law, no justice,

only death and destruction.

Some say it's a sign

of the coming of the Apocalypse,

a time that even immortaIs fear.

There are two in our city.

One of the immortaIs is Zai Jie.

Driven by faith and desperation,

he is on a quest to find The Source,

a holy grail of peace and salvation

to some immortals.

Many believe it does not exist at all,

like Duncan MacLeod,

an immortal who thinks

The Source is a fairy tale,

and illusion created to give hope

where there is none.

Duncan is also the only man

I have ever loved.

We haven't spoken in months,

but sometimes I sense his presence

watching me, protecting me.

Even though Duncan doubts The Source,

I don't.

I've seen it in my visions

and I've feIt its call.


In my soul, I believe in two things:

The Source and Duncan MacLeod,

The Highlander.




I thought you were someone else.

Methos, try and listen

to what I'm saying.

Reggie, calm down.

Tell me what's going on.

Over the past week,

the planets of our solar system

have moved outside their orbital paths

and are coming into alignment.

I mean, do you know how unusual that is?

There's no simple way to explain this.

But that could just be orbital wobble.

Orbital wobble is one thing,

but this...

This is outside the laws

of celestial mechanics.

And that's not all.

Literally millions of celestial bodies

from here to the central

sun of our galaxy are lining up.

When that alignment is complete,

in exactly 4 days, 3 hours, 47 minutes,

The Earth is going to be bombarded

with cosmic radiation.

The moment of The Source.

The light of the cosmos

is literally reaching out to us.


What about Zai?

Did we hear from him?


No, he's overdue.

Isn't your friend MacLeod there?

Can't he help?

MacLeod is not the man he once was.

Well, just try.

Food. Food.

Thank you.

Hey! Stop!

No! No, no!

Oh, God. I hate that.


There can be only one.

Login confirmed.



Z, where the hell

have you been, man?

Reg, there's no time.

It's coming down.

I think I found it.

Where is Giovanni?

Zai, you do God's work.

Do not be afraid.

Your Eminence.

Teli us what you found.

The ancient writings I found in Gaza,

I followed them.

They took me to central Europe.

Then I knew I was getting close.

I found a monastery where the monks

studied an ancient text

that spoke of The Source.

And then...

...he appeared.

He has risen.

The Guardian.

Zai, where is

the location of The Source?

I've written the coordinates

down on this map.

The coordinates are--

The coordinates are on...

Okay, you have to get to the monastery.

You have to find the monks

that bear the symbol

of the Brothers of Doleo.

They will help you find The Source.

Z, I'm losing you, mate.

Sh*t yourself.

Get out of there.

Save yourself.

Pray for me, Father.

Zai's no Jack-the-Lad.

He can handle himself.

He's got a shot, right?

Gonna get the signal back.

Requiem aeternam

dona eis, Domine--


He's coming.

Zai, get out of there.

There can be only me.

The Quickening!




What do you got?

The Guardian is awake.

Find MacLeod.

My God.

This is the end of time!

What are you?

I'm The Guardian.

Duncan MacLeod,

you have squandered your precious gift!

You could have ruled the world,

and you pissed it away.

Have a nice day.

The female, Anna...

She's not for you.

What's Anna got to do with this?


Come on. Over here.

Are you The One, MacLeod?


Would you kill to be The One?
