    3. Proximity sense: the full range of this power is not known but when two or more immortals get within proximity they sense each other's presence. However this does not automatically tell them where the other immortal is, nor does it ever tell WHO the other immortal is. It could be a friend....or not. Also immortals cannot sense mortals but they can sense those destined to be immortal.

But in the first movie before the clan battle, Kurgan says "there is one among them named Connor, leave him to me" so obviously his sense told him which member of the MacLeod clan was his target, and led him straight to him.

Kurgan could have sensed a potential immortal in the clan and investigated to see who it was before the battle

Or we just chalk it up to the long range ability to sense specific immortal's locations at times.

Season 1 ep 2 of the TV series showed Duncan and Tessa walking along a road to go visit and old friend of his. Duncan suddenly collapsed to the ground as if struck and when he stood up he senses that his friend was just beheaded.

Also Highlander 4 Endgame: after Duncan absorbed Connor's power and was restin and mourning we see Kell and it looks like he has sensed the end of his enemy.

It might be that other immortals at times can sense the passing of another immortal if they are in range however this would be an apparently random thing as at the end of season 3, neither Amanda or Methos knew Duncan had won the fight until he emerged from the Eiffel Tower.

Inconsistencies abound in this franchise.
