This week on XENA: WARRIOR PODCAST, we choose the Way of Friendship. Vera, Katie, and Livy fulfill their destinies in (beware!) 4x21 “The Ides of March,” the sorta season finale, the culmination of several major long-running arcs, and a perfect expression of the ecstatic emotionalism Xena is capable of. We discuss why Callisto is so well-suited to the role of stage manager in the Last Temptation of Xena, Caesar and Brutus as the bizarro version of Xena and Gabs, what being a vessel of perfect love means for Gabrielle, when visual storytelling is so powerful that words become unnecessary, the use of parallel editing to create new meaning in the episode’s spectacular climax, and the radical portrayal of female love toppling the patriarchy and ascending to heaven. Plus: "Kyle" Urban, get a room Jesus, finding Mount Amaro on Google Maps, theramin ghost music, Xena’s best hair, Gabs’s missing henna, Hi Zoë!, The Walking Dead, and it’s my spine!!! This is our longest episode yet, so hold on to your butts!!!
The power, the passion, the podcast!
