You’re lime green jello and you can’t even admit it to yourself in this week’s XENA: WARRIOR PODCAST! Vera, Katie, and Livy go up against the green-eyed monster in 3x17 “Forget Me Not,” an ingenious clip show that is actually an intimate character study, re-examining what came before as a way of cunningly pushing the plot forward. We discuss Gabrielle’s painful revelation and the acting breakthrough it represents for Renée O’Connor; the symbol-heavy spirit quest that links this episode back to “The Bitter Suite”; Ares as a manifestation of Gabrielle’s guilt, denial, and dark sexual energy; Joxer the Creepster; the River of Whoa; Gabrielle’s hero’s journey; and whether the actress playing the Priestess of Mnemosyne might be an actual oracle. MEEEEMORIIIIIES!
The power, the passion, the podcast!
