This movie was basically a rewritten first movie.
It did not acknowledge HL 2, in fact some dialogue in it erases HL2 from continuity and set up a new timeline.
HL2: Brenda died from UV radiation burns. HL3: she was killed in a car crash in Scotland and Connor apparently walked away without a scratch despite apparently being mortal. However I can attest from experience that sometimes sheer luck enables one to not be injured in a car crash.
HL 3 came out when season 4 of the series was starting as I recall or about to start. The movie was 1994 and I think Season 4 began to air in 1995.....
HL 3 does NOT link at all to the TV series and the series does not acknowledge it either. There is no mention by Duncan or the Watchers that Connor had adopted a kid or returned to dispatch Kane.
HL 3 did acknowledge that Connor thought he was the last immortal and that the Prize was his until Kane and his cronies emerged from stasis in the cave. It did not mention him being mortal at all, only that he thought he had the Prize but Kane's awakening either revealed he didn't have it, only a major power boost, or the Prize left him.
he goes back to NY City where the Gathering occurred to prepare and we get a brief revisit of the plot of his mortal ID being a murder suspect. Kane somehow tracks him there, they clash and eventually Kane loses.
Connor now apparently does have the Prize including the power of illusion casting and retires to live with his new girl and adopted kid. IT does not indicate if he is mortal or not.
Also the ominious lighting strike at the end leaves it open that maybe there are more immortals still....?
Anyway this movie is overall best ignored along with HL 2 and especially HL5
