the pilot, Immortal thief Amanda meets Nick
Johansson), a cop who is investigating a series of robberies. During
the course of the investigation, Amanda is framed for murder by a
crooked cop from Nick's department. Amanda's name is cleared, but not
before Nick's partner Claudia Hoffman (Torri
Higginson) sacrifices her own life to save Amanda's. Nick discovers
Amanda's immortality when he sees Amanda die, then get up and run away.
death has a profound effect on Amanda, and throughout the series (with
help from Nick's own strong moral code), she attempts to change and
become a good person. She discovers that she caused the deaths of a battalion
of soldiers in World
War I, which further influences this change. Amanda finds herself
facing up to Immortals, even if she doesn't think she can beat them,
when previously, she would have run away.
In the final
episode, Nick inhales a deadly poison, and is told he has twenty-four
hours to live. Amanda, trying to do the right thing, shoots him. When he
awakens a few seconds later, he discovers that he too is Immortal. The
reason behind shooting him was that his immortality could only be
triggered by the shock of a violent death. Unfortunately for Amanda,
Nick is none too happy about it. The series ends with Nick walking away,
angry at Amanda for not telling him that he was Immortal (which she had
known all along), and for making the decision for him.
