Vampire police detective Nick Knight (Geraint Wyn Davies, TV's '24') is back for the third and final season of the thrilling horror series, FOREVER KNIGHT. Tortured by his immortality, Nick's hunger to recover his humanity is more powerful than his lust for blood. But will Nick ever get to see the light of day? Tracy Vetter (Lisa Ryder) joins the cast as Nick's new partner at the police department, and Davies' real-life son Galen plays Patrick the orphan in 'The Human Factor.' Third season highlights include Nick's possible connection to the mysterious murder of 'Blackwing,' the race to discover a cure for a deadly virus in 'Fever,' and Nick's enlisting of a confined madman to solve a brutal slaying in 'Trophy Girl.'
Though it's achieved immortality in the hearts of its devoted fans, the supernatural-themed series Forever Knight
ends with this third-season set, which brings the saga of vampire-turned-sleuth Nick Knight (Geraint Wyn Davies of 24
) to a startling conclusion. Change seems to be the theme of the third season (1995-96), which sees the departure of much-loved sidekick Schanke (John Kapelos) under violent circumstances (as detailed in the two-part season opener, "Black Buddha"), and the arrival of a new partner, Tracy Vetter (Lisa Ryan), who's involved with another creature of the night, Vachon (Ben Bass). Further complicating matters are the return of Nick's former lover Janette (Deborah Duchene), who reveals a surprising twist of her own in "The Human Factor," and Divia (Kathryn Long), the daughter of Knight's mentor/nemesis LaCroix (Nigel Bennett), in "Ashes to Ashes." But of course, the biggest wrinkle of the third season is Nick's struggle to resist his vampiric urges; this conflict, along with the fates of most of the major characters, come to a head with the series closer, "Last Knight," which still packs a punch with its dramatic (some might say drastic) denouement. Blood, romance, mystery, and death--all things that make for an addictive series, and all major elements of Forever Knight
's final season, which certainly accounts for the show's long-lasting cult appeal. The five-disc set includes all 22 episodes of the third season, and is rounded out by a trio of appropriately dark and evocative music videos created from series footage. --Paul Gaita
