[Fantasy, 60 min., 1996]

[Nick as Cory Raines]

Immortal bank robber Cory Raines is held at swordspoint in "Money No Object."

The episode description, from the official Highlander web site:

Written by: James Thorpe
Directed by: Rafal Zielinski
Guest Cast: (Stan Kirsch), (Nicholas Lea)

MacLeod and Amanda are reunited with CORY RAINES, the charming, smooth-talking "Clyde" to Amanda's "Bonnie" during their five state crime spree in the 1920s. Amanda, always ready for a little larceny, is tempted by the carefree and adventurous lifestyle Cory offers her and takes him up on the offer when she realizes MacLeod won't beg her to stay with him. But MacLeod rides to the rescue when one of Cory's schemes goes astray.

"This was hilarious. Cory was about as different from Krycek as you could imagine: playful, charming, impulsive, always smiling, never serious about anything. There are plot holes big enough to fly an alien mothership through, but it was nevertheless a very funny and enjoyable show. Adrian Paul's wooden manner, which generally irritates me, suited this episode perfectly. He was the straight man to Nick, and his stiff surliness was a perfect foil for Cory's light-hearted charm. I'm hoping Cory Raines will return to annoy McLeod again in future episodes -- many, many future episodes!"

"Good lord, what a cutie...I hope they have Cory back sometime."

-- Pat Jacquerie

"Wow, I just saw the Highlander ep with Nick Lea as Cory Raines. What a difference a role makes! I'm stunned!"

Nick was also in the episode "The Fighter," playing a different character.
