This week on XENA: WARRIOR PODCAST, is this burning an eternal flame? Vera, Katie, and Livy are tracking more monsters in 6x08 “The Ring,” the second installment of the show’s Wagnerian mashup. We discuss how this ep compares to the middle chapters of our favorite movie trilogies, what special qualities director Rick Jacobson brings to this material (hint: rhymes with FOMO), Brunnhilda as an exemplar of the show’s two versions of love: the possessive egocentric and the purely selfless. Plus: always read the fine print when handling all-powerful rings, why did baby Grindl forsake love?, should good hurt/comfort happen more often or does its rarity make it special?, Maternal Instincts jokes, Odin is a close talker, Xena’s illogical and anticlimactic bout of amnesia, and the power of Deadly Hugs!
The power, the passion, the podcast!
