Character: Aussie thief Scott Bruenell
Fashion statement: Who knew workman's coveralls could be
Deathless dialogue: Can I get a beer?
Peter appeared in the "Foreign Exchange" episode of The Sentinel
playing the arch nemesis of a female Australian cop who was joining
the cast of the show in that episode. His lines were few and far
between (and so was his Australian accent), but he did have plenty
of opportunities to fire guns, swing his fists and even hang-glide
well, pretend to, although since Peter has parachuted in
real life, maybe he'll take up hang-gliding sometime!
What can we say about Scott Bruenell? Is he Methos gone bad again?
Consider the evidence...
- One of the first lines Bruenell utters is to order a beer. One
of the first lines Methos ever utters is to offer Duncan MacLeod
- It looks like Bruenell plans to steal money from the mint, but
unbeknownst to his fellow crooks, he's not after the money, but
the printing plates. In "Revelation 6:8" it looks like
Methos has joined Kronos' gang, but unbeknownst to his fellow
Horsemen, he leaves behind clues for MacLeod to trace him.
- Bruenell's escape is foiled by Aussie cop Megan confronting
him next to his getaway van. Methos seems to like confrontations
next to vehicles the trains in "Methuselah's Gift," the
Jimmy in "Comes a Horseman," the Range Rover in "Indiscretions."
- In the climactic fight with Megan, Bruenell pulls out a hidden
knife. In "Forgive Us Our Trespasses," Methos pulls
out a hidden knife and stabs Steven Keane.
