Under the Kilt

David Abramowitz - Creative Consultant
"This is where Tessa dies. Did I get letters from this one; people hated me for killing her. But the truth is that the actress wanted off the show."

Don Paonessa, Creative Consultant, Post Production
"Aside from playing around with the way Tessa was shot, there was nothing really unusual for Post in this show. I went to set the night Tessa was shot."

Ken Gord, Producer
"Steve Geaghan, the Production Designer, would find one little thing in every show that became his mantra and the gypsy wagon in this show was his mantra. Brent-Karl Clackson and I used to have great discussions with Steve because he would turn the entire show into the thing that he was turned on by, which in this case was the gypsy wagon. On this show, there was also that black set, which was supposed to be "the darkness." It sounds pretty easy, but it took us all day to turn that thing into a black set, so as a result the gypsy camp got minimized in shooting."


A mortal named Pallin Wolf, one of the renegade Watchers who believes the Immortals must be eliminated, lures an Immortal to his house and kills him, getting hte advantage by tricking him into a sealed room that is completely dark, then stalking him with night vision goggles. Meanwhile, a Gypsy fortuneteller they meet in a restaurant, Greta, warns Tessa that she is in danger. When Tessa is kidnapped by Wolf, MacLeod returns to Greta, asking for her help. But she is mostly a hustler and not accustomed to getting actual visions, so the clues she is able to provide are meager. Finally, Mac finds Wolf's house, where Wolf is waiting until he remembers a matchbook Greta gave him with her phone number on it. Lighting the matches, he regains the advantage and kills Wolf. However, as Tessa and Richie are heading for the car, a young junkie accosts them for money and in an act of senseless violence, shoots them both. As Mac mourns, Richie tentatively sits up, healing -- he is an Immortal. But Tessa is gone.

Gypsy Camp, 1848
