Would Methos have killed Cassandra if he could get away with it
(i.e. without Duncan finding out)? Here's a script excerpt from
the scene in "Horseman" before Methos dumps Cassandra over the bridge.
As Cassandra races through the building. Kronos is somewhere far
behind her. Then she feels a BUZZ. She turns and comes face
to face with METHOS.
CASSANDRA Damn you.
She dives at him, ready to take him with her bare hands. Methos
takes a hit on the shoulder, then side-steps cold-cocks her
with his sword-pommel. Cassandra goes down, out cold. Methos looks
at her unconscious form for a BEAT, the sword in his hand. One easy
swing is all it would take, and she's out of his life, forever.
He hesitates a BEAT he looks up as he gets the BUZZ...
