Also remember, that first guest you saw was not the sorcerer. He was his “apprentice”. So you still don’t know who the author or the sorcerer is

'Huh? You have magic or just a stinky breath? You crack me up. 😂 The green smoke did make it look like she knocked the dogs out with the sheer stench of her bad breath. Maybe they should've made it a different color. And yes, Rumple's transition back into Storybrooke was too smooth! He tossed that cane so quickly!

Darkness on the Edge of Town- Thank you very much for another fun and exciting reaction for my favorite show!!! What a fun episode Darkness on the Edge of Town is. And I cannot wait for many more episode reactions from you to come!!! :) First, in regards to Regina burning the bird painting inside her office... As you might remember, the painting belonged to Mary Margaret when she was briefly the town Mayor when Regina stepped down upon going through some heavy emotions after Marian arrived in Storybrooke when Emma and Hook accidentally bring them back from their time travel adventure. The bird painting is a very Snow White kind of painting and it did not fit Regina's office décor. Also... Regina noticed the painting in an earlier episode during this time period and disdainfully mocks it, saying how Mary Margaret had put it up in bad taste. So, in this episode... she burns it, symbolizing her return to power. I hope this makes sense. Now... I love the overall backstory, that reveals to us how Rumplestiltskin, Maleficent, Cruella, and Ursula all first meets as Rumplestiltskin summoned them together for a secret meeting at the Forbidden Fortress where Maleficent lives. And not only does Rumple convince the Queens of Darkness to trust him despite him lying to them about his true intentions in helping them as well, but we also learn how Rumple originally gains possession of the original dark curse, which we learn way back in the second episode of season one... The Thing You Love Most, that he had given it to Regina so she could cast the curse for him, yet that she soon gave it to Maleficent, until Regina then steals it back from Maleficent some time later. I always love great connections to past episodes, especially to episodes so early on. Later, Rumplestiltskin leads the villainesses to the cavern where the orb containing the dark curse is protected by three challenges, and the dangerous Chernabog which each one of the women must work together in order to break through it and to survive. Thankfully for them, they all succeed and they survive. However, Rumple tricks them and steals the dark curse away from them, then leaves them there to die, which started the women's even deeper distrust in the Dark One. I love how both Cruella and Maleficent are both able to pass their tests because Rumplestiltskin brings them in to work with him specifically for their powers that match the tests. However, I find that Ursula's power to use to her tentacles to grab the orb... while I do understand that she had to grab it as she does to avoid being killed should anyone walk up to the pedestal to take it by hand, I still think this moment is very weak. I feel badly for Ursula as a character and for the actress who plays her... Merrin Dungey, because this is the first opportunity she is given to show off who she is and what she can do, and this moment makes her appear to be weak and boring... which she's not. Personally, I really like Ursula as a villain. She isn't one of my favorite villains, but I really like her character overall a lot. But a lot of fans of this show don't like her mostly and this moment sparks most fans' dislike of her. So I feel bad for her. I really hope you will grow to like Ursula more as the show goes on. Now, as for the present day storyline inside Storybrooke... in the beginning we see the peace that's come over their town within the last six weeks due to Gold having been banished from Storybrooke. We see a brief montage that shows Regina back to being the Mayor, Snow teaching again while Granny babysits baby Neal for Snow, and it shows Emma meeting up with Killian as he has a coffee waiting for her. I love their little kiss, then seeing Killian kiss Emma on her forehead before she walks away and he follows Belle inside the library. So cute. Emma and Killian are absolutely adorable together!! I can't say it enough. :) Next... we have a beautiful scene between Killian and Belle inside the library where they're working together to find a way to free the fairies, as well as the Apprentice from the Sorcerer's hat. Killian's frustration in being unable to find anything for the last six weeks is completely understandable, as it comes more from his guilt over the very difficult situation he had been trapped in, that he really shouldn't feel badly about, except for him having agreed to help Gold imprison the old man within the hat as well, before Gold ripped out Killian's heart. And then... this conversation leads Killian to bring up how he had been a fool for allowing himself to fall for Gold's lie, while Belle feels the same way upon realizing how naïve she had been to trust in him as well. I love this conversation between them, as Killian has come to be a really good friend and confidant for Belle. And I love that while Killian still deeply hates Gold for what he did to him and nearly did to Emma, he is so kind to Belle and reminds her of just how much Gold did love her to try to offer her as much comfort as he can upon seeing her so sad. Beautiful moment between them. And it's one of my favorite scenes throughout the episode. Also... I love how Gold convinces Ursula and Cruella to help him in his dark plan, and seeing them come together, then arrive outside of Storybrooke, in Cruella's classic Panther De Ville with the license plate that spells out, "DEV IL" to show anyone who sees her car just who owns it. And boy... is it a beautiful car. I don't know anything about classic cars and I certainly don't have any kind of appreciation for them, but if I ever had money to buy such a car... I would absolutely love to buy myself a replica of Cruella's car. I love it!!! I love the villains overall partnership and Gold's big plan that has barely begun, as they seek out to gain back their happy endings, in their own search for the Author. Meanwhile... the heroes are busy fighting and dealing with the Chernabog that we see was somehow also trapped within the Sorcerer's hat, no thanks to Gold once again because we find out that it was him who gave Belle the spell to free the fairies from the hat as he poses as a professor from Oxford who is talking within Belle through emails, having given Belle the spell to free the fairies, but also one that would free the Chernabog as well in order to unleash havoc on the town. In order to create trouble for the heroes so that he could use the beast as a way to convince the heroes to let Cruella and Ursula into Storybrooke. I didn't expect this twist and I love this whole brilliant idea. And thanks to Ursula and Cruella, the heroes learn that the Chernabog goes after the person with the most potential in their heart for darkness just like it had once gone after Maleficent in their past together, but thankfully Regina and Emma figure out for themselves that the only way to defeat it is to force the magical creature over the town line, outside of Storybrooke where no magic exists. And after quite the exciting battle as they race in Emma's yellow bug to the town line... they succeed as Regina surrenders herself to the creature as she thinks she's the one the creature is after due to her heart still being black, in order to protect Emma, only to duck just in time as Emma slams on her breaks so that the Chernabog goes flying over the town line and dispels. So exciting! Again... I love it! In regards to the inspiration for the Chernabog... this creature is from the Disney movie... Fantasia from way back in 1940. The Chernabog is a creature shown in one of this movie's many sequences, and I love that another character from Fantasia. Unfortunately, but brilliantly... we later learn through Gold as he explains this to the two Queens of Darkness, that the creature wasn't actually after Regina like she and everyone else would have expected for it to, but Emma Swan. Because it's just like you quickly worked out... Emma has the real heart with the greatest potential for darkness on account of just how powerful she is as the Savior. Yikes!! I love all the mystery within these storylines. The Author storyline, Emma's heart with the great potential for darkness storyline, and more... such phenomenal mysteries that are so intriguing. Love it!! :) Also... I love how Regina is able to finally free the fairies from the hat after she casts the spell so she can release them, then seeing Killian continuing to feel guilty at their celebration inside Granny's afterwards, until Emma comes out to assure him he doesn't deserve to keep feeling so guilty, since it was Gold's control over Killian's heart that forced him to do so. This is my other favorite moment in this episode. I love how Emma attempts to lighten his mood as she talks about going to "buckle some swash", then how she assures Killian that to her, he has a well deserved "mark in the hero column". Such a cute moment between them. I love it! And like you... I am so happy that Killian's storyline from the Frozen arc is carried through into this new arc with him now feeling the guilt coming from his actions. And I love all the more that Emma doesn't blame him for his actions even from before he lost his heart... back when he was forced to make a deal with Gold to get him to remove his hand again upon it supposedly being cursed. I appreciate Emma's growth, because in the past I feel she most definitely would have been angry with him. And I agree with you that it's wonderful seeing just how much Killian has grown as well. Love it! Oh... and through the Blue Fairy, Regina and Henry learn a little more about the Author, and that somehow, for some reason the Sorcerer was in the possession of all of the Author's storybooks. I love the mystery behind the Author and the heroes', as well as the villains' searches for him or her too. I also like the scene in the beginning between Emma and Regina just before Killian and Belle come running into Regina's office to reveal that they discovered how to free the fairies. I love how Emma continues to assure Regina that they will find the Author to help Regina gain her happy ending, and that Emma soon finds the new Page 23 from the storybook, which we see all taped back together after Regina clearly had turned back to collect the pieces after having torn the page into pieces and let go of them in the previous episode... Heroes and Villains, just after Robin crosses the town line with Marian and Roland. Very nice. Later on, in spite of Mary Margaret's and Charming's protests, both Emma and Regina agree to let Cruella and Ursula into Storybrooke using the Snow Queen's scroll to do so, because they had kept up their end of their deal and helped them to defeat the Chernabog. And they do so, which leads to the Queens of Darkness later letting Gold into Storybrooke as well. Not good. It seems strange that no one would take back the scroll, or have someone keep an eye on the two villains after they drive across the town line and continue to walk around freely throughout town. However, it's a flaw I can overlook since I love this episode overall so much. I love the idea of them using the Snow Queen's scroll in order to let Ursula and Cruella into Storybrooke actually. I think it's a very clever idea because we really didn't see a whole lot of use of the scroll when the Snow Queen herself used it to get into Storybrooke, or when the Apprentice gives it to her. And besides... it is a way to bring our characters into Storybrooke again, without having to take any time away from the rest of this season arc's stories in order to show an all new way of solving this dilemma. Also... I really love the moment Cruella and Ursula let Gold back into Storybrooke when they toss the scroll out to him, and I absolutely love the moment Gold transitions from being a cripple out in the outside world, to when he suddenly can walk perfectly well without his cane as he tosses it away the moment he steps across the town line. Brilliant! Then... we are finally reminded in the end of this episode that the reason why Maleficent isn't with the two other Queens of Darkness and Rumple within the present storyline, is because she had been killed as was shown back in part two of season one's two part finale... A Land Without Magic, when we see Emma fighting against Maleficent in her dragon form down in the caves beneath the library and clock tower. At the end of this battle, Emma succeeds in killing Maleficent by throwing her father's sword directly into the dragon's chest just as she is about to blow her fire, and Maleficent suddenly bursts into flames and ash, leaving a pile of her ash on the rocks. Then, later in season two's episode... The Evil Queen, Hook is shown fighting against Maleficent in her newly mummified form, revealing that she's dead, but not completely as dead as she would be were it not for the magic casted over her when the curse brought Maleficent over in the dark curse as well. Now... somehow Gold has a plan to bring her back so that the Queens of Darkness will all become reunited once more. Phenomenal!!! I absolutely love this storyline, and I'm so excited for you to see all that's to come!!! :) And lastly... we have one final conversation between Mary Margaret, David, Ursula, and Cruella somewhere within the forest as they come together in the dark and rain for a secret meeting. And in this moment, it's revealed the four of them have a past together, along with Maleficent that Snow and Charming do not want to anyone to learn about, especially their daughter. And hearing Mary Margaret threaten to rip out the villainess' hearts is so scary. So unlike Snow White. I love it, although it's also a little sad too. There's so much more to come and I can't wait!! Such a fantastic storyline! Overall... a brilliant episode and I really love it. I absolutely love Maleficent, Cruella, and Ursula, and seeing them come to work together in both the present and the past. The actresses chosen to play all three of these powerful women are prefect, and even Cruella has magic too, which she didn't in her movies... 101 Dalmatians, both the Disney animated one and the two live-action movies with Glenn Close as Cruella De Vil, and I really love this twist given to her character for the sake of making Cruella just as big of a threat as the rest of these powerful villainesses too. The power of persuasion and influence over all animals and creatures. This is amazing, and when I first watched this episode when it first aired on TV, I was so excited for the reveal as to how it is Cruella has come to have magic too!! I love Kristin Bauer Van Straten (Maleficent), Victoria Smurfit (Cruella) and Merrin Dungey (Ursula)! Oh... and if I remember correctly, you are a fan of the show, Lost, so you might be interested to know that the voice coming through the drive thru voice box... is Daniel Dae Kim, who is from Lost. There are a ton of Lost references all throughout Once Upon a Time. I don't watch Lost and never have, but I know Daniel Dae Kim plays one of the show's main characters, just like the Snow Queen played by Elizabeth Mitchell, and Tiny, who is played by actor, Jorge Garcia... are both major characters from Lost too. Like you, I love seeing three villains like Cruella De Vil, Ursula, and Rumplestiltskin going through the drive thru at some chicken fast food restaurant. Very funny. :) Thank you so much again for your amazing reaction for Darkness on the Edge of Town! I'm so excited for more to come!!! So, until your next reaction... Thank you!!! Sincerely, Heidi

Zero. Literally zero spoilers. Frozen is finally over. And if you felt annoyed by Frozen characters being in this show less than a year after the films release. I was HEAVILY annoyed...at first. But the way they incorporated Ingrid felt good. It provided mystery and it honestly gave me something that I wish was in Frozen which was an actual complex villain that you COULD do a thesis on. Hans was not a villain. He was only a plot twist nor was he that important. But I loved that they salvaged Hans Christian Anderson’s original fairy tale with bringing a remix of the Demon Mirror (through shattered sight) and the Snow Queen, who was undeniably evil but also had a really warped sense of reality thanks to years of guilt after being trapped in an urn for DECADES. Plus I didn’t hate where the plot went. I liked the end results. Thus the Frozen arc while not my favorite I can give s pass on over Greg and Tamara (UGH). Literally THE worst villain team up this show ever tried. With Cruella De Vil? I won’t say a thing. But she IS there for a good story reason. Plus she provides a good thesis onto the particular story she is attached to. A lot of episodes prior also teased these three as the next major villains. From the Dalmatian in the Arcade machine. Something about a Sleeping Spell in episodes prior and I totally forget Ursula’s. But they left ton of clues. I honestly don’t know what else to say except when watching I loved the Belle moment so much when watching. Ever since she saw her evil self and Rumple dead face lie. I was fuming. I mean I knew Rumple would always be a much more darker character than Regina. And as stated with Neal dying in S3 I think they honestly salvaged his character from an irreversible path that would not have felt true to someone called “the Dark One.” But yeah you’re officially in the Queens of Darkness arc and I can’t state much except that it’s NOT the Frozen arc. Again to me the worst ever storyline was Greg and Tamara. In the long run of things they almost don’t even feel like actual thinking villains due to the way they were written. Just a headache.

Also during this time I got plagued by SOO many tornado warnings and watches where I lived and I missed a ton of episodes during the 4B (Queens of Darkness) when it aired three months after this episode. (It would end in Dec and come back in March. From March thru June is the worst time where I live when these storms become natural). I don’t wanna go to Oz Dorothy stop sending me invites! Love your movie and your shoes but no! 😭 only tornadoes I wanna see are with Helen Hunt in the truck.

Glad the Frozen stuff is over with and that I don't have to watch it for a whole season. I don't find Cruella being in the show to be random. She's in it because she's a villain like the others. And virtually all of the characters have sad events that have happened to them in their life, but Regina really takes the cake. Her life is almost always in shambles one way or another. When will she get some happiness?😞

Heroes and Villains- Welcome to the new Queens of Darkness arc! I love this episode!!!! What a beautiful way to end the Frozen arc, as well as a tragic and phenomenal way to set up the beginning of the new arc for the second half of season four. I love every moment of this episode. So thank you very much for your reaction! And I'm so happy you enjoyed the Frozen arc. Not as much as I do, but of course that's okay. I honestly can't say that it's my overall favorite story arc throughout this show, but it's amazing. I love so much about each story arc throughout all the seasons. In regards to your thoughts about the strangeness of Cruella joining this show as one of this new arc's coming villains... At first, I absolutely agreed with you that it seemed strange that this show's creators and writers chose to bring her into the show, especially as one of the main villains for the stories to come. However, I promise you... there is so much more to Cruella than meets the eye. And the actress chosen to play her is phenomenal. I love Victoria Smurfit. And as for Ursula being in the real world... it will all be revealed in time. I think you're really going to like what's to come for the second half of this season. I certainly hope so. As for my favorite moments throughout this episode... First... one of my absolute favorite moments is the brief moment towards the end between Emma and Killian when she pushes Killian's heart back into his chest. It's beautiful and it makes me happy to see the love of Killian's life restore his heart to him. She most definitely holds his heart, and no longer just figuratively, but literally as well. Emma is where Killian has always kept his heart and it's beautiful for me to see her restore it to him so that he can feel his love for her and the love she holds for him so completely. And as if I didn't love it enough as it is, Killian then tells Emma... "I told you, Swan... I'm a survivor.", just like he had told her back in the ending of episode three... Rocky Road. So beautiful. I absolutely love it!! I love Rumple and Belle, as well as Snow and Charming, and Regina and Robin Hood together. However, my all time favorite True Love couple throughout this series is Killian and Emma, of course. Just as they are my two all time favorite characters throughout the show as well. They always have been and always will be. They're just so beautiful and perfect together, because they make each other better in every way. Killian gives Emma the strength and courage to believe in herself the way he does, and Emma helped to bring out the hero in Hook and continues to show Killian that he's a good man and not the villain he struggles to not believe himself to be. They're so good together and their love story is absolutely beautiful. Next... another of my favorite moments is also another moment between Killian and Emma, in Granny's Diner when Killian comes to talk to Emma about finding the portal while Gold is talking through him by control of his heart. It's so sad because you can see behind Killian's eyes that he hates being controlled by his greatest enemy and that it's killing him knowing he's about to die, and being unable to say his goodbyes to Emma because he's being controlled in his final moments with her. And then... at last Emma finally speaks out upon continuing to recognize something is wrong with him. We've caught glimpses of Emma recognizing something's wrong with Killian before. First in Smash the Mirror Part Two, when Killian runs up to her in the mansion to make sure she's okay just after Gold first rips out his heart, as she looks into Killian's eyes after he forcefully kisses her, as she asks him if he's okay. And then again in Fall, when Killian comes to Emma to say his goodbyes just before the Spell of Shattered Sight falls over everyone. Emma touches her lips and looks after him in confusion once he walks away. Unfortunately, both times she shrugs off her sense of uneasiness that something was wrong with Killian, most likely because she feels she's worried about nothing and because Emma has a tendency to doubt herself. Until this moment in Heroes and Villains. Emma at last really recognizes that something is truly wrong with Killian after Gold finishes talking through him as she senses how strangely he's talking, then Killian attempts to walk away from her. But more so... I love that Killian reaches down to grab Emma's arm in plea despite Gold's power over him and Emma knows then that Killian is in trouble. Which brings me to my biggest nitpick I have about this episode, and that is that I hate how Emma does nothing to help Killian after she knows without a doubt something's wrong with him. It's like she still shrugs off her sense that something's wrong with him and ignores his plea for help upon grabbing hold of her wrist, and instead... she and the Charmings go with Elsa, Anna, and Kristoff to the mansion so those from Arendelle can return home. I like this moment between them as they say goodbye to their friends from Arendelle, but surely helping them to get home could have waited a little bit longer, while Emma rushed after Killian to help him. Were it not for Belle saving Killian when she did by taking control over Gold with the real Dark One dagger, Emma would have been too late to save Killian, and Gold would have succeeded in crushing Killian's heart. And that makes me quote upset. I really wish the writers would have changed this episode up just a little bit to help fix what little I dislike about this episode. But with that being said... my final favorite scene throughout this episode is the moment between Belle and Gold at the town line, as Belle orders Gold over the town line to protect everyone from the beast she finally sees him as. As tragic as this scene is, being forced into a powerless world away from her and his real true love that is his power is most definitely what Gold deserves. Just desserts. But mostly, I love this scene because it shows Belle with the kind of strength we've seen in her in glimpses throughout the show so far, until that strength in her seems to fade a little because she continuously falls for Gold's and Rumple's lies, time and time again. While I love Belle very much, I feel she is a little too wishy washy in her feelings towards Rumple/Gold, and it's a bit annoying. But at last... this moment in Heroes and Villains shows just how strong her character can be and while forcing Rumple across the town line breaks her heart because she loves him, she knows she has to protect all of those in Storybrooke, as well as the world from the darkness that's inside of him. Her heart too. And by rendering Gold powerless in the outside world, she succeeds. Absolutely brilliant!! What phenomenal acting from both Emilie De Ravin and Robert Carlyle too. And this scene for me, is Belle's best moment throughout the entire show. This is when she is at her best and strongest. Love it! But... Gold isn't down yet! :) He is powerless and he's weak now that he's trapped in the real world outside of Storybrooke, but he has a plan and now he has an ally, and he is about to find more. I love this moment in the very end when Gold comes to Ursula, who also is mysteriously trapped within the outside world and powerless, after seemingly having lost a battle that made her powerless as well. And this sets up the beginning of the season's second arc with three new villains. We have met Maleficent in the show before, but both Ursula and Cruella are new villains brought into Once Upon a Time, with the small exception of the moment in season three's episode titled... Ariel, when Ursula threatens Regina and warns her never to impersonate her again. However, we never actually saw Ursula's true form. Just her appearing before Regina in her magic mirror in the form of a statue that had been erected for her. And as for Maleficent... she was only seen in a few brief scenes until she's killed by Emma way back in season one's finale... A Land Without Magic, when she was killed in dragon form by Emma just as you remembered. You'll just have to wait and see why she's a villain chosen to be brought back into this show for the second half of season four. I can't wait for you to see what's to come in the new Queens of Darkness arc!! Now... I really enjoy the overall backstory between Rumple. Belle, Maleficent, Cruella, and Ursula, as the Queens of Darkness kidnap Belle to try to force the Dark One to give up the gauntlet that leads those in possession of it, to one's weakness so that they can use it against the heroes keeping them from finding their own happy endings, which leads us into a major theme coming up throughout the next story arc. And I love how Rumple later comes back to steal the gauntlet back, which sets up how Belle at last discovers the truth that she's blinded herself to this entire season. The tragic truth that Rumple's true love is his power and not her. Brilliant! :) Next... I was so happy to see that once the Snow Queen's magic over Marian had worn off and she appeared to be okay, Robin chose Regina over Marian, and I was happy that Marian understood that Robin's heart had moved on upon falling in love with another woman. Unfortunately, Regina's and Robin's happiness doesn't last because of course the Snow Queen's magic doesn't appear to have worn off completely like they all believed, and the only way to save Marian at this point, is to send her across the town line. And sadly, Robin needs to go with her, mostly for Roland's sake so he can be with his mother, but also because it would have been bad to send Marian off on her own into an unknown world. This whole scene at the town line is so sad, and sadly... we see Regina finally turn her back to Robin as she tears up the mysterious page 23 that showed her happy ending with Robin. So sad. And if that wasn't bad enough, it makes Regina believe all the more... just as Rumple and the Queens of Darkness all believe as well, that villains don't get their happy endings. And if this is true, then what does this all mean for other villains who have fought to redeem themselves and to try to become heroes? Heroes like Hook? And lastly... I absolutely love how this idea that Regina has questioned a number of times throughout the Frozen arc, is now carrying over into this new story arc and that it's about to become a major theme for what's to come. The belief in whether or not villains can have their happy endings. The heroes like Emma are going to fight to make sure Killian and Regina can have their happy endings, while the villains like Rumple, Ursula, and Cruella are going to fight to steal their own happy endings as well by making sure the heroes lose theirs. I am so grateful for another phenomenal reaction from you for this amazing episode, so thank you so much again, Marlie!!! :) Until your next reaction... Sincerely, Heidi

Yup, Danielle Cormack, who played Ephiny, also played Samsara. I’m glad Tony covered the Amazon High thing; I actually think the idea had potential, although I have never seen the intact pilot. (I like Selma Blair.) I actually think a spin-off about Amazons could be very cool, but not in this prehistoric setting. Ah well. ... Jennifer Sky was doing Cleopatra 2525, one of the shows launched to replace Hercules. So I guess she may have been too busy? But it’s not like she would have been far away. Maybe death just provided more dramatic impact. ... “In honor of our dead men, I say we accept no more males into our society.” I gotta say, this really doesn’t sound like a very good idea. Oh well; let’s dance!

To me this is the worst episode of Xena. Aside from the problems Tony mentioned, it has a big flaw in the plot. Gabrielle is a Greek Amazon, not a Northern Amazon. She can't give her right of caste to Eve in their tribe. And since when do Northern Amazons wear belly tops like Greek Amazons?

User #2312150 - 17 Oct 20 02:23
I have to say really not a fan of this episode and i tend to skip this one when i rewatch the show. It's quite a mess, not helped by the fact that large amounts of the episode are taken from a failed pilot for a show called Amazon High which Renaissance shot in 1997. This was pretty much a way to get some of the footage out there and is a big reason this episode feels very disjointed. And frankly glad the series didn't sell as its pretty awful in my opinion not helped by the embarrassing character Selma Blair plays- the whole time travel thing really doesn't work well. And its definitely not one of Karl Urban's finest hours! The character was pretty much a waste of his great talents. Also I don't really think we've had a good bunch of Amazons in the show for a long time (at least since Seasons 1, 2 and 3) and I am actually glad to finally see the back of Yakut, another character I've never warmed to. I am really annoyed at the fact Amarice (who i did like!) is actually written out of the series by being killed off OFF SCREEN. She actually left to appear in another series but surely they could have just said she had travelled off somewhere or a more happy explanation for her absence. I always hate when characters leave a show that way! You'll see a featurette in the near future where Steven Sears explains his original plans for her :-) Whole episode is pretty much a waste of time for me apart from a couple of nice Xena/Gabrielle scenes, some nice lighting and cinematography during the ceremony and of course some one point music (even if a lot of the Amazon dance music is recycled). So yeah definitely a bottom rung ep of the show.

I think the most common reaction to this episode is “what just happened?” Anyway, I will always laugh at Gabby as Lolita and Joxer’s Saturday Night Fever entrance every time.

User #37711238 - 17 Oct 20 03:12
I’m glad you enjoyed this one, and your comment about wanting to see a show in this environment is what I think the producers were going for. It is notorious. What can one say about this episode, whether you like it or not, beyond WTF? I’d agree with Tony that it’s one of the episodes most likely to be on your average fan’s “worst episodes” list. Extraordinarily silly, and for me not in an especially engaging way. And you’re absolutely right...suddenly the Gods don’t seem to care one bit about killing Eve? Major continuity problem...have Discord and Aphrodite not been paying any attention? At times they tried some wild ideas on Xena, and sometimes they surprisingly worked, but this is an instance where their crazy idea wasn’t that successful for me. But you and Tony are good examples of how something can work for some and not work for others. The middle of Season 5 here is the point at which I think the creative team (several of whom were focused on other shows during S5) realized they needed to come back and give Xena some more attention. Hallelujah! There are certainly assorted fun moments in the episode, but it just doesn’t seem like an episode of Xena to me, which is why it’s one of my least favorite episodes. I don’t hate it like some fans do, but it doesn’t come across as a Xena episode for me. Like it has a bunch of actors I enjoy watching, but they’re all basically playing different characters, so I lose most of the connection back to the world of Xena, which is what I’m here for. That’s not to say that the underlying theme of Gabrielle needing to embrace her role as a mother of Eve isn’t one that the show needed to address. She’s referring to herself as Auntie in the beginning, when in reality she’s going to be a co-parent for this baby, and there’s so much trauma that Gabrielle still needs to move beyond (Hope, Solan, Hope again...) But this is how they chose to do it? Oy vey! Good things...let me see... This is probably my favorite Discord episode. I don’t generally like her character, but the actress did a good job in this one. I’m sure the production design and costume staff all had a blast getting to do something so different. And you’re right...this is also one where I recommend changing the episode order around. Xena is still in her black pregnancy leathers here, so it should be watched before Amphipolis Under Siege in my opinion. They clearly wanted to get a good action episode back on the schedule and opted to air that one earlier. But if nothing else, I will give this episode credit for producing half of my favorite Xena meme ever...don’t think I can include photos here, but I’ll throw it up on Discord.
user avatar
User #2312150 - 17 Oct 20 03:40
Well, Discord and especially Aphrodite don't really seem to be the types of God that would want to assassinate a child so i can look past that one. Chalk it down to being too engrossed in their catfight ;-) I do actually find their little light blast fight quite a hoot!
user avatar
User #2312150 - 17 Oct 20 02:07
YES!! Someone else who actually likes Married With Fishsticks! :-) I'd better explain, a lot of fandom considers this the worst ever episode of the series and I strongly disagree. Like you, I find this one a lot of fun and really enjoyed the imaginative set designs and the whole concept of the sea-world. It's very much inspired by the 1987 movie Overboard (which actually wasn't as fun) and also manages to be a crazy mix of 50's beach movies, Saturday Night Fever gags and Flintstone-esque costumes and is a great opportunity to see Renee and Ted play together in a totally different scenario. Also Renee as you say can still look incredibly hot even in a crazy wig! I'm usually a sucker for more off-beat episodes and you hit the nail totally on the head when you said the beauty of Xena is never knowing what style of episode you're going to get next. That kind of experimentation is long lost in TV in my opinion. And hey, Baby Roe does indeed grow on you! I do giggle a lot at the Jerry Springer inspired catfight scene too right down to the two security guards and Gabrielle's censored flip-off! On another note though, as you also said its nice to see at the end Gabrielle is able to feel much more at ease with Eve- extra important when you recall the trauma she had with Hope. And Gabrielle does get a couple of kiss scenes this episode to make up for all the Xena/Ares make outs in previous episodes even if the one on Joxer is a rather unintentional one. You were right when you said it felt like this episode was meant to air before, it should have actually aired before Amphipolis Under Siege but was moved around. So glad you liked it, Marlie! :-)

This is honestly very exciting. Didn’t think Exorcist would be hittin the round. Wonder what version will it be. The theatrical or the director’s cut. Loved the Director’s Cut tho for story purposes and I’m honestly sad I don’t have it. But ah well. I’m also sad the tv show got cancelled despite both seasons being done very well.

This is great news. Got some catching up to do now. A friend lent me his boxsets years ago and I really enjoyed how unique this show was. In return I loaned him my SG1 boxsets. For future interest how does the sponsorship of episodes to shows work exactly.
user avatar
Chosen_One_Reactions - 17 Oct 20 00:02
SG1 is on my hopefully someday list, but probably for the very far future haha :) The sponsor tier ($20) has 10 slots (all full at the moment). Every month a sponsor can request me to react to a pilot episode (max 1 hour). A lot of times sponsors want me to continue the same show, so in that case I watch one episode every month for as long as they pledge. If the selected episode is around 20 minutes I react to 2 that month.

The first Doctor I was aware of was when I was younger was 5. I saw 6 occasionally but I was too young to control the remote. I probably watched mostly episodes of 7 but some people at the BBC weren't really backing the show at that point. 8 is a movie. Then 9 gave me a chance to properly get back into the show and doesn't Christopher do a fantastic job. My favourite part of watching someone's NuWho journey is series 1 and this mile stone. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Looking forward to seeing how you take to David as The Doctor. He's also wonderful.
user avatar
User #8508665 - 15 Oct 20 17:03
I was much the same (although I started with 3). Ecclestone was responsible for reigniting my enthusiasm - so much so that I went back and watched a ton of episodes that I'd missed from the Classic series simultaneously with watching everything that the new series did. If it hadn't been for Ecclestone beiing so effective in the role,I never would have done that.
user avatar
User #14133603 - 13 Oct 20 04:16
How wonderful to have Christopher Eccleston as your first Doctor, one of the greats. You never forget your first Doctor, you may or may not have favourite Doctors to come, or from the past if you delve that deep, but your first always holds a special place. Just in case you did not know- the next episode is a Christmas special ‘The Christmas Invasion’ - the Christmas specials are part of a series and should not be skipped.

User #577179 - 13 Oct 20 15:38
like with wat everyone else is saying , your in for a long journey with doctor who, but i think the reason this show resonates with people is the fact that everything changes, i think it can be a good thing. i hope u will continue to enjoy this show. thanks again for reacting to it.
user avatar
User #35443290 - 15 Oct 20 22:30
Eccleston definitely deserved a second series. Sadly, series 1 was supposed to "sell" Doctor Who to new viewers and to explain the possibilities of the show, including the concept of regeneration. But even though every regeneration is upsetting at first, but it also brings so much to the show. Can't wait to see your opinion on David Tennant as the Doctor :) And about the finale itself, I love it. A few people don't like the Deus Ex Machina of Rose just having complete control over the universe for a few minutes, but I don't mind it. Bringing back the Daleks without naming them for an entire episode was a great idea, and the Dalek Emperor's design was pretty cool. And honestly, Rose playing The Weakest Link is still one of the funniest things ever to me.

User #2880014 - 13 Oct 20 10:19
you made it. you have finished season 1 and it was great and I loved everything. and now there's the 10th doctor. I love him so much he's my favourite but everytime I rewatch season1 I remember how much I love the 9th doctor and then I wish we had more episodes with him and then I am sad my favourite part was this the dalek: I did nothing you: did you have a PR agent or something? that made me laugh so hard omg

User #6912408 - 12 Oct 20 22:20
"I can see the whole of time and space, every single atom of your existence, and I divide them". Love that line so much. It's so badass. I love this two parter, probably my favourite finale of a DW series. It's just perfect. The regeneration at the end is also my favourite because being only like 9 at the time, I was Rose in that scene. I didn't know what was happening or who he'd turn into. Unfortunately nowadays everybody knows when a regeneration is gonna happen and who the next Doctor will be. I'd much prefer it if it was a surprise still. I always remember my immediate thought of seeing David for the first time was "oooo he's much younger". The 9th Doctor had a short time but had an amazing series. Series 1 will always be one of my favourites. You're in for a treat with David now though. =D Btw it was Chris' choice to leave the show so they obviously wrote him out. He didn't get on with some of the higher ups on the show. Whenever the doctor regenerates it's the actors decision to leave, not the show writing them out. So hopefully that helps =D
user avatar
User #30645024 - 13 Oct 20 11:54
Can you believe that some people actually suggest that season 1 should be skipped and that the 9th Doctor wasn't good?! Chris was also my first Doctor and I couldn't imagine the show without him. I stumbled across Doctor Who on a whim as I was flipping through tv channels one day. When they started getting chased by mannequins I was like "okay this is my kind of show" lol. I was totally shocked when Chris regenerated and had no idea this was something that even happened in the show. While it can be sad to lose a Doctor I think it's part of what makes the show so special. What other show can change a main character so many times, and stay on air for this long? I have a question for you, so I know that you knew the Doctor changes, but were you familiar with regeneration at all? If not what did you think was going to happen when the Doctor changed? I also want to thank you for taking on Doctor Who and making it one of your main shows. It's quite the commitment, but it's very rewarding at the same time.

I really like this episode. Throwing the characters randomly into other tv shows is such a fun concept to me. Like you I'm familiar with the first two, Big Brother and The Weakest Link. I think the last one is from a show called How Do I Look? I was convinced Rose was gone for good when the android zapped her because 1. We were so close to the finale and 2. This show doesn't mind killing people. I also heard that allegedly Lynda was introduced in an attempt to get us to believe that she may become Rose's "replacement". It's easy for the writers to screw with our heads because ANYTHING can happen on this show!

Shattered Sight- Yay!!! Thank you so much for your reaction to such an amazing, funny, and beautiful episode!!!! Again... this episode is most definitely among my favorites from season four as well. I feel that this Frozen arc has the most number of episodes within a single arc that I consider to be among my favorite episodes and we still have one more to come. This arc is really quite beautiful. :) Also... I do agree with you that I had hoped we would have seen a bit more darkness in everyone given how much this spell has been built up this first half of the season. However, I do believe it is like you said... that the spell takes time to fully build up and for people to really see the darkness within themselves. Just like we saw with Belle back in the previous episode... Family Business, when she was staring into her reflection in the Snow Queen's mirror within her ice cave. Her inner darkness was really building up more and more the longer she was under the spell's trance. With all that being said, my favorite moments... First... I absolutely love the final scene between Emma, Elsa, Anna, and of course Ingrid too, as Ingrid finally learns that her sisters loved her all along and that Gerda was so sorry for everything that happened between them, including taking all memories of Ingrid and Helga away from the people of Arendelle. I love how Ingrid sacrifices her life to reverse her Spell of Shattered Sight. What a beautiful and heartbreaking moment. It is a little rushed, as is the entire episode, but that's due to time constraints with having to fit the end of the Snow Queen's story within a single episode. It's beautiful overall. I've always loved the Snow Queen as a villain. She isn't my favorite by any means, but she is phenomenal. And I love that she also finds redemption so she too could have her happy ending, despite being a villain just moments earlier. Ingrid attacking Anna and then suddenly feeling such remorse is strange, but then... Ingrid does pick up the crystals and comes to feel her sisters' love again at their touch. So I get it as well. Overall... so beautiful. :) Second... I love, love, love both scenes between Killian and Gold inside his shop. I love Killian's lines and banter as he struggles to remain strong while he's being forced to do Gold's bidding against his will, in spite of feeling so heartbroken knowing he's going to die soon once Gold gets around to crushing his heart. And third... I love the moment inside Town Hall between Killian and Henry, as Killian is there on Gold's orders to kidnap Henry for Gold. I love how Henry calls Killian a dirty pirate, to which Killian responds, "Dirty... I bathe quite frequently, thank you very much." Their banter continues when Killian is happy to hear that Emma used the word "together" upon talking about their relationship. I think Killian focuses on the wrong words Henry says to him because Killian understands that Henry is under the spell's influence and therefore knows Henry doesn't mean any of the unkind words he's saying to him. So I appreciate that. Killian then finally gets inside through Regina's spell until he unfortunately falls hard on the marbles Henry put out on the floor in front of the door to try to slow down anyone who breaks inside, as Killian did, and to make things worse... Killian then runs into Will Scarlet, who still has a quarrel with him due to when Killian gave him a black eye and attacked him under Gold's influence back in the episode... The Apprentice. It's a good thing Killian is able to defeat him pretty easily. Very funny and so good. :) Now, as for Ingrid's backstory with young Emma... while I felt they were the weaker scenes throughout the episode overall, I still really enjoy this backstory that shows how Ingrid not only gets to know Emma when she's young, but also how the Snow Queen later comes to be in Storybrooke, and we see a scene between them just after Emma first arrives in Storybrooke herself inside Ingrid's ice cream parlor, known as Any Given Sundae. The only problem with this scene, is that back when Emma had just arrived in Storybrooke, and we know it's early on because Emma mentions she is going to call Graham for help upon seeing Ingrid is apparently stalking her, Ingrid swiftly uses magic to pull out Emma's memories of her and into the crystal, when magic didn't exist yet in Storybrooke. Maybe she was able to use magic because Emma is the Savior and we know that magic could come back at certain times because of her. But I'm not so sure. Maybe this was a misstep, or maybe Emma being there was what allowed Ingrid to use magic. Either way... I still enjoy this scene. What I love most about the past storyline is seeing how Ingrid makes the mistake of pushing young Emma, as well as Emma upon her arrival in Storybrooke... too far, much too fast. They're sad moments, especially upon seeing young Emma had almost been adopted and felt loved for such a brief time by someone, only for her to wind up getting hurt all over again. As for present day Storybrooke under the influence of the Snow Queen's Spell of Shattered Sight... oh my gosh, these scenes between the characters are hilarious. I love seeing Regina become the Evil Queen again so briefly. I love the banter between her, Mary Margaret, and David. I love the sword battle between Regina and Mary Margaret inside the sheriff's station while David is trapped still in the jail cell. And I love the overall banter back and forth between Mary Margaret, David, Anna, and Kristoff. So adorable and hilarious. I especially love the banter when David mocks Kristoff about being an ice man and how all of Arendelle is frozen... a fantastic nod to the Disney movie, Frozen. :) I love how Emma and Elsa work together to discover a way to destroy the ribbons around their wrists. And I love that they are quickly able to figure out they can use Regina's current hatred while under the spell to counteract Ingrid's love. Although... Emma really should have put up a new containment spell over Regina's vault in order to keep Regina inside once they did what they needed to do. Emma's lucky Regina didn't kill her parents or brother. And I love how Anna finally joins them upon finding hers and Elsa's parents' letter to them along with the memory stones containing the memories the rock trolls had taken from all of Arendelle of Ingrid and Helga. The moment between Anna and Ingrid is beautiful and heartbreaking. I love it! Also... I love the moment between Anna and Kristoff once again on the beach after Regina poofs them away, as Kristoff sadly continues to complain under the spell's influence. It's a sad moment, but I love how Kristoff's lines are still funny in Kristoff's way, because it's who he is. And he and Anna are just so adorable together. I love them! Sadly, Anna has to render Kristoff unconscious by striking him across the back of his head with the glass bottle, in order to save his life. Thankfully, this allows for Anna to find her parents' message in the bottle. Perfect! And lastly... to go with one of my favorite moments, I absolutely love how Killian pleads with Gold to leave Emma and all of Storybrooke alone now that the Snow Queen's threat has been taken care of, as a last request. And I love how Gold eerily and darkly responds that so long as the heroes don't stand in his way, they have nothing to fear from him, yet he can't promise such for the rest of the world. This moment is so sad because Killian is so broken upon knowing he's going to die soon, yet so amazing because Gold is so sinister and cruel. I love, love, love this scene!!! :) Overall... such a beautiful and phenomenal episode. I love seeing all of the townsfolk including Granny and the dwarfs fighting one another under the spell's influence, then seeing them hug one another as the snow begins to fall once the spell is finally broken. And I love, love, love seeing Regina, Mary Margaret, and David begin to laugh upon the spell breaking as well once they all see Regina dressed once again as the Evil Queen and remember how they were fighting one another, then seeing them join their loved ones outside along with Elsa and Anna too. Seeing them laughing with one another after all is said and done... it really does show just how far they've all come. Everything about this episode is brilliant! Thank you so much once more, for another phenomenal and fun reaction, Marlie!!! I'm so happy you enjoyed this episode so much. :) I can't wait for the next episode!!! Until then, my friend...

So it might sound kinda stupid, but I really sympathize with the Snow Queen. I actually cry quite a bit every time I see her final sacrifice there... Haha weird huh? I dunno, I guess I just stopped seeing her as a villain as much as a lonely, sad, and scared woman whos unique power makes her feel that she should be able to fight that sadness and fear by "making her own happiness." She was more alone than any other magic person that we've met for the most part, and that isolation made it so she could never truly believe she was loved and accepted, because she couldn't even accept herself as the only weirdo that ever existed (in their neck of the world anyway). I just saw a woman fighting tooth and nail for the kind of love you get from a family, and when she realized how wrong she'd been to think she never had that, she had to pause and realize what she'd become. So she sacrificed herself to make it right. It breaks my heart... lol. Maybe im just too emotional or empathetic, I dunno. It's more than I can say for Rumple though... he really drives me nuts!!

You don't sound like that at all! I wish I felt the sadness they wanted me to feel! You are seeing her in the way they have written her character. It just didn't click for me and it's perfectly fine to have different opinions or experiences. Do keep sharing them. You're NOT too emotional or emphatic. Keep being you <3

Sadly the NEXT episode is the Mid Season Break episode. Then the episode right after which you had to wait 3 months for. If I took all the three months from Seasons 3 4 5 6 and 7 that would be 15 MONTHS (1 year and 3 months) OF WAITING. 😭💀 I NEVER want to convert those numbers ever again. It really helps the second half of the seasons tho to feel more like their own season arc. Your reactions are wonderful. Even tho Frozen isn’t my favorite I did enjoy the acting a lot. To me Shattered Sight is just a super fun episode. Seeing Mary Margaret and Regina just laughing and smiling even though they were just trying to kill each other shows us how far they’ve come. I loved that so much. Finally. In regards to Rumple. I hated when Neal died. It was Graham’s death to a thousandth degree. But I think with his death we finally get back to the heart of Rumple’s true character. His death was necessary for him to start sink into darkness. It makes the most sense he would be the one backsliding and not Regina. I always felt like Neal should’ve been saved for later down the line.

I feel more emotion from Graham's death and Emma's and Henry's reactions to his death, far more than I feel for Neal's death. Although, my heart does break for Emma, Rumple, Henry, Belle, and Killian too afterwards.

And in answer to your question about who directs this episode, and which other past episode he directs... it is an actor/director named Mario Van Peeples. And throughout this show, he only directs three episodes, all of which you've now seen... It's Not Easy Being Green from season three, and Family Business as well as Fall from season four. I agree with you that his directing especially in this episode is phenomenal, and his skills are definitely shown throughout the previous two episodes as well.

Fall- Yay!!! Fall is absolutely and easily another one of my overall favorites throughout this Frozen arc. I love Fall so, so much!! It isn't perfect, and there are some choices made throughout this episode in regards to Elsa's character, that aren't great, but as a whole... I absolutely love this episode and it's about as close to perfect as any episode of any show can be. First, in regards to why Gold doesn't pull the Snow Queen into his hat to gain her power... it's because they have an understanding between one another. And because Gold has made a deal with Ingrid that protects her from him turning against her, as much as a part of him wishes he could take her power for himself. And you know that Gold always honors his end of the deals he makes. Plus... Gold makes it pretty clear throughout this episode that he actually wants the Snow Queen to succeed in her plans to cast her Spell of Shattered Sight, because this way ensures that no one will be left alive to come after him once he cleaves himself from the dagger upon killing Hook, then escapes out into the outside world with Belle and Henry to wreak havoc among the outside world. Now... my absolute favorite moment in this entire episode is the most beautiful moment between Emma and Killian, when Killian comes to the sheriff's station to sadly say goodbye to Emma. And what's worse... is that Killian knows he's about to die by Gold's hand and so his goodbye to Emma as far as he believes is a final goodbye, whereas Emma only believes he's saying goodbye to her for the time being, for as long as the Snow Queen's Spell of Shattered Sight remains upon them. It's so sad and such a beautiful moment for them. I balled when I first saw this scene when the episode first aired on television, and I still tear up every time since. The emotion we see in both Killian's and Emma's eyes, as well as on their faces... heartbreaking. Especially Killian's tearful goodbye. And then... once Killian leaves, there's a brief moment where Emma reaches up to touch her lips upon feeling Killian's kiss linger on them, and she shows this strange look like she senses something is very wrong, which I love because it shows that Emma senses something's wrong with Killian. Like his heart isn't fully into their kiss, and the truth is that it isn't, given that his heart is currently being held captive by Gold. So I really love this too. Phenomenal acting from both Colin O'Donoghue and Jennifer Morrison!! Another of my overall favorite moments in this episode is when Anna and Kristoff are trapped inside the trunk beneath the ocean, as Kristoff fights to give the woman he loves the strength she needs to have hope, and when Anna tries to marry him before they die. It's so beautiful and this episode makes me love both Anna and Kristoff all that much more than I've loved them before. It has also brought Anna and Kristoff up to be among one of my overall favorite True Love couples throughout all of Once Upon a Time. Along with my other favorite True Love couples... Emma and Killian, Snow White and Prince Charming, and Regina and Robin Hood. I love Rumple and Belle too of course, but they slip every now and again for me. But more on them later... Back to Fall... I love both of the actors who play Anna and Kristoff, Elizabeth Lail and Scott Michael Foster, very much. And I think it's wonderful that Kristoff is given so much more screen time throughout this episode. Love it! :) Another favorite moment... is the very brief moment when we see Killian hiding from Emma behind the counter at Granny's with the heartbreaking look of guilt and despair on his face. Again... Killian's emotion is breathtaking and heartbreaking. I feel so bad for him. And seeing him so broken makes me hate Rumple for causing all of this. Now, as for the Arendelle storyline between Anna and Kristoff... I love it. All of it!! I love seeing that the Snow Queen's freeze spell wears off for an unknown reason at the time, and I love the cute banter back and forth between them. I love seeing Anna and Kristoff fight against Prince Hans and his three brothers so they can escape. And then they come up with a plan to face Black Beard upon Anna having read in her parents' journal about the Wishing Star that they had possibly gotten from Black Beard, rather than face off against an evil wizard... Rumplestiltskin. Unfortunately, Hans outsmarts them and makes a deal with Captain Black Beard so they can capture Anna and Kristoff, then get rid of them once and for all. And in doing so, Hans plans to kill the heroes, but instead of just making them walk the plank and drowning them, Black Beard forces Anna and Kristoff into a trunk, then throws the trunk overboard with them inside. I hate Hans, aside from appreciating how much the actor chosen to play him is perfect in playing Prince Hans. However, I do enjoy the partnership between him and Black Beard... mostly because I just love Black Beard as a villain. He's hilarious and delightfully cheesy, and I love Charles Mesure as Black Beard and I like him as an actor. As for them being aboard the Jolly Roger... I recognized the Jolly Roger from the moment we see it onscreen again. And when Black Beard states that he is the Captain of the Jolly Roger, I always want to slap him. The Jolly Roger rightfully belongs to Hook, not to Black Beard, and certainly to no one else. However, the question is... how does Black Beard have it now? If you remember from back in season three's episodes... New York City Serenade, The Jolly Roger, and its finale... There's No Place Like Home, Hook had known that Black Beard has wanted to take the Jolly Roger away from him for many years, and at first in the episode, The Jolly Roger... Hook defeats Black Beard and takes back the Jolly Roger from him, then it was revealed in There's No Place Like Home... that Hook had traded his ship to someone for a magic bean so he could get back to Emma so he could save her and so she could save her family from the new curse that was coming. Now... it was never said then who Hook had traded the Jolly Roger to, but seeing as Black Beard is currently in possession of it in this current episode and in the present time... it's clear that Hook sadly had to give up his ship and the only home he's known since he and his older brother Liam had been in the Royal Navy together and was trapped in Neverland for over two hundred years, to Black Beard. It's tragic really because Black Beard doesn't deserve Hook's ship, but I absolutely love seeing the connection between this episode... Fall, and season three's episodes... New York City Serenade, The Jolly Roger, and There's No Place Like Home! Phenomenal!! And in answer as to why Black Beard was necessary to bring into this episode... this is why. In order to connect these episodes together and to reveal what's come of the Jolly Roger at last. I love it!! Next... we also learn through Hans that all of Arendelle has been frozen for the last thirty years, which brings this storyline we believed to be in the past, up to the present day... as it leads us into the Storybrooke storyline. And I absolutely love it! I love how the writers and creators are able to connect both storylines to bring everyone together as they have. Now, as for the Storybrooke storyline... I absolutely love it overall!!! I like how this storyline begins with another scene between Rumple and Ingrid, as they make a deal between one another. In exchange for Rumple sparing her life and leaving her alone in Storybrooke with Emma and Elsa, the Snow Queen agrees to allow Rumple to leave with Belle and Henry as well. Very smart, as I really enjoy every scene between these two villains. Next... we have each of the scenes where the heroes are trying to come up with a plan to either stop the Snow Queen's Spell of Shattered Sight altogether by using Anna's necklace to either find Anna, or to use the mirror dust embedded in it to cast the fairies' and Belle's spell that can counteract the curse's affects over everyone. I really enjoy each of these scenes with them together. Unfortunately, Rumple forces Killian through his control over Killian's heart to destroy the fairies' and Belle's efforts, by ordering Killian to trap all of the fairies including Blue inside the Sorcerer's hat. And you can see the shattering guilt on Killian's face when he entraps Blue, as he remorsefully apologizes to her for doing so. I absolutely love this moment in this episode!! It's very sad and quite exciting. And then... because Rumple destroys all the heroes' chances to save themselves from Ingrid's spell, they are all forced to accept that the curse is going to fall over them. So they must plan to protect one another. Which I will talk about in a moment... I enjoy the scenes between Emma and Elsa, while Elsa continues to fight to believe she will find Anna, even against the other heroes' decision. But more than these... I absolutely love the moment Elsa makes the wish that Anna would be there in Storybrooke with her, not knowing that Anna's necklace is in fact the Wishing Star that her parents had bought from Black Beard after all, yet could never use it to wish away Elsa's ice magic because the Wishing Star requires the wisher to be of pure heart. Elsa's, Anna's, and Kristoff's reunion, as well as seeing Anna and Kristoff become saved from death... is beautiful. I absolutely love seeing them all come together again! :) Now, in regards to my very minor dislike of these scenes... Elsa makes some pretty strange choices throughout these scenes in regards to how she steals the necklace, go slow enough for Emma to easily catch up to her again before she can break down the tunnel's wall, and then takes time later to hug Anna when the curse is about to fall over them. But I understand why they were written... so that Elsa and Emma could save Anna and Kristoff and bring them to Storybrooke. So these are very minor nitpicks. Next... the fairies have all become trapped inside the Sorcerer's hat and the heroes have all taken the precautions needed to protect one another. I really enjoy the scene in the sheriff's station when Kristoff greets David again, and they and Anna are brought together again, as well as when David introduces them to Mary Margaret and Emma as his daughter to Anna and Kristoff. I love that Anna questions how Emma can be David's and Mary Margaret's daughter. Very cute. Again... they are in a hurry, so it doesn't make sense that the heroes would stop to talk like this, but it's still a cute scene nonetheless. And there are a lot of shows and movies that makes these kinds of mistakes. So I can easily let these nitpicks go. I would love to see more of David's and Kristoff's friendship. But I just really love their brief moment together upon seeing these two friends reunited. And while we haven't seen more of their friendship with one another... it's definitely very believable. Sadly, Mary Margaret and David lock themselves up into the separate jail cells, while Kristoff must lock himself in cuffs to one of the desks so he too can't hurt anyone. And Emma must take baby Neal to protect him since she, Elsa, and Anna are immune. And later, Mary Margaret shows her fear to her husband, who assures her to have hope. These moments are very sad and touching. I also truly love the moments between Regina and Robin, as well as between Regina and Henry as well. Their moments are so sweet and beautiful, while also heartbreaking. They all love one another so much. One more tiny thing that really does kind of bother me about this episode... it's that towards the beginning, Regina tells Robin that the only ones who believes in her are him and Henry. However, this isn't true. Everyone believes in Regina now too. Or at least all of the heroes do. Emma, Mary Margaret, David, Killian, etc... Mary Margaret spent the last episode trying to convince Regina to believe in herself like she believes in her. So hearing Regina continue to say that she doesn't feel the others believe in her as much too... it's a little aggravating. I suppose I can understand that Regina is still really struggling to believe in herself and therefore she can't really see how much others do, but... oh well. I also absolutely love the scenes between Rumple and Killian, first in the beginning in the harbor when Killian is first told of Rumple's plans for him and for the fairies, as well as in the end when Killian tries to warn Rumple that he could have Belle's love if he just let go of his lust for power, after which Rumple threatens Killian once more as he tells Killian to enjoy his last day alive. So sad, but their rivalry is amazing as always! :) And lastly... my final favorite moment in this episode is the montage sequence showing each of the heroes looking up into the sky as the Snow Queen's Spell of Shattered Sight begins to fall. It's phenomenal and the music is so beautiful and perfect. Everyone looks so afraid and defeated. And we see Anna embrace her sister while she looks over at Kristoff as the spell falls, as well as David and Mary Margaret holding hands, while Emma protects her baby brother. And then... the glass from the spell shatters in their eyes and David and Mary Margaret let go of one another while they stare at one another coldly once the curse has fallen. It's so sad and frightening, and amazing! I love, love, love this episode so much!! And it's definitely one of my favorite episodes of season four, and throughout the entire show too!! I am so grateful for your reaction, Marlie. Thank you so much!!! Until your next reaction...

Paris Jefferson is a definite stand out as Athena in this episode and one of its strengths and she's a God that really gives us some perspective on why the Gods feel they are justified in fighting for their existence. Also her relationship with Ilainus humanises her and her grief at her death really makes us feel genuinely sad for her along with the haunting line she delivers to Ares "We're next." Great delivery there. Add some really well staged battle scenes, the moving moment where Cyrene and the townspeople sing for Xena (how things have changed since Sins of the Past!) and that great Gabrielle speech when morale is down and you have a solid and involving episode. Of course the Xena/Ares make out scenes are once again a little too much (I was also really not wanting Xena to go THERE!) Of course we have that bugbear that haunts both Hercules and Xena that in reality the Gods could just wipe out everybody if they wished and to really enjoy the shows you have to kind of let it go that they had limitations and inconsistencies when it came to their powers. Dramatic licence really otherwise the stories would have ended a lot more quickly!

Musetta Vander, who played Illainus (spell check😬) has played the She-Mantis in Buffy and Sindel in Mortal Kombat but is best known to me as Lash from the Oblivion movies. ... Yes, Athena gave Cecrops immortality. ... I don’t want to be very negative, so I won’t harp on this, but I don’t love this Twilight stuff. Specifically, it really doesn’t make sense to me that the gods would have such a hard time killing Eve. Honestly, this should have been over in 30 seconds. I don’t care how many skills Xena has; this is kinda ridiculous. Also, the gods never give the most obvious motivation for their actions: self-preservation. Zeus was not “clinging to power,” as Xena claims; he was trying to save his entire family. But instead we hear that mortals can’t live without gods. Whether they can or can’t, why don’t the gods point out that, hey, all of us, including our own children, are supposed to die because of this one baby. I don’t blame Xena for protecting her child, but I don’t blame the Olympians for trying to save their sons and daughters and husbands and wives and parents and so on. Sigh. Oh well. ... That all aside, I think this episode is still well done. I really like Xena’s mom singing the same song that the village women were singing while working in the very first episode. And Ares... well, Ares is cool pretty much no matter what the situation. Although he’s hardly in the best light trying to coerce Xena into a new phase of their relationship. 😳... The goddess of wisdom never even suspected that the bundle that was wrapped so much you couldn’t even see a baby might be a fake? Okay ... I think I appreciate Paris Jefferson, who played Athena, more than I used to. She IS good.

I never really thought of it like that, but I have to say I agree, the gods would be protecting their family. Well, Athena would. Many of the gods had no capacity tho understand the fear of loss and lived like caricatures to their own natures, so perhaps not all of them. Good points though! I can't blame them for doing what they think they have to do.

I think you might already be aware how much I love Athena as a figure from mythology and what she stands for. So I couldn't help but love the respect they still managed to show her in this show despite her being Xena's main enemy. They really did a great job portraying that Athena was not just any other god Xena might encounter, but was someone whos involvement was actually quite a big deal. I wish they weren't on opposite sides, but I love that by showing that conversation between Xena and Athena, we can see that Xena also wishes that. And how many gods would Xena say THAT about? :-)

Ah, the episode to finally make all those Xena/Ares shippers *really* happy! Well, not that anything serious ends up happening, but they get a cool (or should I say “hot”) scene to appease them. And yes, there are plenty of fans who fall into that camp. Xena fans (Xenites) tend to be pretty cool about everyone loving what they want about the series and not judging. For example, there were certainly those viewers who were very anti-subtext back in the day, but I don’t think those people have stuck around...the fandom doesn’t tolerate that kind of negativity. Kevin Smith’s charisma certainly makes his character more appealing, but I do think some fans are so drawn to it that they forget how truly horrible he’s been to Xena. But even Xena has to admit she feels something for him. How much is outright attraction and how much of it is generated by Ares? He clearly wants Xena to choose him of her own volition (even if he’s manipulating her most of the time), but it wouldn’t surprise me if he’s giving off some godly pheromones that are hard to resist. In the beginning, it’s SO gratifying to see Xena back in her usual brown leathers...and they make it a cool slow motion jump to celebrate the return. The pregnancy leathers served their purpose, but you can’t beat her iconic look. I laughed when you mentioned tin foil...you’re absolutely right, and I feel like there weren’t as many costumes that seemed silly in the previous seasons. But I guess that can happen when your amazing costume designer leaves to go work on Lord of the Rings and win an Oscar. There are still incredible costumes in the later seasons, but I do find silly ones at times that are distracting for me. Athena makes a terrific adversary (I can’t call her a villain as she’s fighting for her family and doing her best to avoid hurting innocents). She very much shows how she’s distinct from Ares as the goddess of both wisdom and war. I feel like she views war as a necessity rather than something to revel in, as Ares would. In the world of Xenaverse subtext, it’s very apparent that there’s a relationship between Athena and Ilainus. It’s suggested in the same way as Xena and Gabrielle’s relationship, through dialogue and the performances of the actors, without outright showing a romantic kiss or other undeniable gesture. Cyrene leading the villagers in the anthem of Amphipolis, taking us back to the first instance of that song in the pilot when Xena returns home, is incredibly moving. Think what it must mean to Xena...so different from that original return when the people were ready to stone her...obviously more has happened in the background of the story that wasn’t shown in any episodes such that their feelings toward her have changed so dramatically. There’s also a nice parallel to The Price here where you can see how Xena and Gabrielle have evolved as partners. They’re both working together on the plan where they often need to act separately, and Xena trusts Gabrielle to lead parts of the battle away from her. There’s mention of the wounded being able to keep watch, which Gabrielle understands as necessary, but Xena doesn’t consider asking them to hold weapons and be ready to fight. It all shows growth and a compromise of balancing what the greater good is in this situation. And Xena even struggles with the decision of having the villagers fight to protect Eve until it becomes clear there’s a larger story here, about people’s relationship with the gods rather than the story of a single baby. Ares finally brings up the thought (which I think you shared earlier and did again this time) that the gods could be making this a self-fulfilling prophecy, and it remains to be seen what the prophecy really means. All we know so far is that the birth of Eve hasn’t yet caused the death of any of them directly. I’ve always wondered what the twilight storyline might have been had they decided not to write it around Lucy’s pregnancy. Someone correct me if I’m misremembering, but I thought Rob Tapert said somewhere that they had wanted to do the twilight idea and that it didn’t originate out of pregnancy brainstorming sessions specifically. I’m not certain though, but it’s interesting to think how else they might have gotten there without the birth and the prophecy being the trigger behind it. I do have some issues with the logic in this episode and through other Season 5 episodes. It continues to be hard to imagine that the gods couldn’t figure out a better way to kill Eve. As others have discussed, it wouldn’t make compelling television if the gods were so all powerful that they could snap their fingers and kill Eve with a thought, but their ineptitude does make you scratch your head. At least Athena gives some kind of explanation indicating that she wants to avoid hurting the villagers. But couldn’t she just appear when Eve is in the crib, wave her hand to throw back anyone there, and then end it? What the gods can and can’t do from one episode to the next and one season to the next varies tremendously. Again, we have to not think too hard about it. I guess you could explain it as their powers slowly diminishing as people turn away from worshipping them. And the fake baby at the end really does require you to stretch your imagination...couldn’t they have had a basket or something that would make it a tad less obvious than a swaddled doll? Gabrielle continues to give Ares the best smirks. The one at the end reminds me of Seeds of Faith when Xena names her as the father. It was crucial for her to call to Ares and essentially threaten him if he agreed to Xena’s offer, as that sold it for him that it was for real. Though when Gabrielle says, “If you lay a hand on her..” - I would not want to be on the receiving end of the bard’s anger if that had happened! And the ending is great...Gabrielle starts to show a bit of jealousy, and Xena can’t help but tease her a little, but it’s not going to evolve into a fight between them. And now that you’ve reached this episode, I can share that I have two cats named Ares and Athena :)

I do want to say something about what you said about the fandom being pretty cool about everyone liking what they like about the series and not judging and then mentioning people who were not into the subtext not being tolerated by the fandom. That sounded a little contradictory. I actually like about Xena that the show can appeal to everyone and that it was made in such a way that no member of the audience feels excluded and can have their own take on the relationship. If someone chooses not to view the subtext in the show, i don't see why they should be treated as a negative influence if their comments aren't telling others what to think about it. I have to mention unfortunately that i have had a couple of negative experiences in the community where i was actually attacked for being a heterosexual fan of the show. The quote i actually got was "this isn't a show for straight people so you have no right to comment on it." Which i think is pretty extreme. Luckily it was a couple of isolated incidents it seemed but i do think the series should be inclusive of everyone -as that is a big message in the show itself- and allow everyone to see and love it in the way they most enjoy. Nobody's take has to be diminshed as long as they love the show and don't come down in a bad way on others for having different opinions. Personally i always liked Steven Sears comments about as far as he was concerned there were no labels in the Xenaverse- Xena and Gabrielle and others loved who they loved, man or woman. And that surely is the best universe to live in.

Hi, Tony, I think you may have misunderstood me, or I was possibly unclear. My reference to those who were “anti-subtext” was not intended to mean those who don’t include subtext within their interpretation of the show. My use of the prefix “anti” was meant to refer to those who were actively *against* the subtext and saw it as a negative development on the show. I don’t know of a better way to refer to those individuals. They didn’t want to see any suggestion of subtext...as someone commented on my YouTube channel, “I loved this show, until the weird lesbian stuff started.“ You explained my reasoning behind that perfectly in the rest of your comment. The show walked a very fine line of not trying to diminish anyone’s view of the show. For example, I know someone who identifies as asexual, and that’s how she chooses to view Xena and Gabrielle - as a loving but asexual couple. Others see them as a romantic friendship (as in Victorian times - kissing and nothing more). Others see them as best friends and soulmates, but not in any kind of romantic way. I’m sorry you’ve had negative experiences, but glad that they were one-offs. There are always going to be a small number of people who feel threatened by others who are different or see things differently.

I do like the whole Twilight saga but it does seem funny how the gods can't even kill a little baby with their bolts of lightning and tornadoes. Athena could've easily just blasted all the villagers away but she mostly just stands around and lets these weak armies get slaughtered left and right? And the whole Elenis "your wound is beyond my healing" thing - uhh Xena's died before, except you're a freaking goddess Athena and live on Mt. Olympus, just go home and feed some ambrosia to Elenis's dead ass and boom she's back c'mon lol. The singing villagers when Athena is giving her speech always gives me the feels, I could see Marlie tearing up a little, it always gets to me! <3 Also Xena with the Ares nipple bite, AHHHH 🤣🤣

User #24561012 - 10 Oct 20 23:39
I think Xena was not dead in 'The Quest'. She was just in a coma. (In the episode, xena said to Gabrielle 'I'm not dead, at least not completely'. Therefore I think ambrosia can make someone recover from a coma, but not resurrect dead people or heal someone who is not in a coma. And didn't ambrosia already drop into a pit in The Quest?

That was the problem with the show... tone down the gods because Xena and Hercules would have lost in one second.
user avatar
User #4849268 - 11 Oct 20 01:15
I'm pretty sure Xena was dead dead. When she died she saw M'Lila and M'Lila said "when the living think of the dead, the dead can hear their thoughts". I think what Xena meant by "I'm not dead, at least not completely" is her essence, her soul was still hanging around, hence why she was able to possess Autolycus and Gabrielle temporarily at times. Her soul couldn't go back into a 'dead' body but the ambrosia brought it back to life. Also I don't think you realize that ambrosia is literally the "food of the gods", they eat that stuff on a daily basis. The ambrosia that dropped into the pit was a mere 'treasure'/rarity left by the gods for the lucky humans who are able to solve that little puzzle. Sometimes there are consistency issues with Xena but I still love the show. If Athena could just snap her fingers and stuff Elenis with ambrosia to bring her back to life then they'd just start that siege all over again, but they had to make it 'real' and gut-wrenching for a god like Athena so she could know the pain of loss in battle.

User #2312150 - 12 Oct 20 20:14
Thanks for the clarification, Jen. Obviously those kind of comments that were left on your channel i totally understand your feelings about! That definitely qualifies as anti. Really though its their loss if they stopped watching the show- they're missing a lot of great stuff. Ironic thing is in my case I don't really know why i was attacked cos I'm pro-subtext so it was obviously a prejudice thing. Though it wasn't as extreme as actually having my life threatened for liking a less popular ship in the X Files! That was a doozy! I do think understating the subtext made the relationship between Xena and Gabrielle much more natural and powerful and REAL. It wasn't being used to bait viewers like some shows are definitely guilty of today and i really appreciate it for that too. My big fear when they talked about the reboot (which thankfully didn't happen) was the talk they would really overstate it and i just knew they wouldn't have done it proper justice. I mean Lucy and Renee can convey so much with just looks and no dialogue sometimes.

User #37711238 - 12 Oct 20 21:37
Thanks, Tony! The channel comment honestly was more disappointing than upsetting. There can be real vitriol out there in the online world, and yes, even the Xenaverse isn’t immune. I’m sure there was no reason you were attacked beyond the other individuals being insecure. Or they may have been going after you based on interactions they’d had with other male fans of the show. Any of that is uncalled for and incredibly frustrating when it happens. My impression today is that since we’re well past the heyday of the show, anyone who was overly negative has hopefully moved on (or at least learned to keep their mouth shut about others’ opinions that they don’t personally like). The fans I’ve seen stick with the show 25 years later are overwhelmingly the kind of fans I’m proud to be a part of.

Though i never knew about that scripted goodbye kiss between Gabrielle and Joxer in this episode. If Joxer had been near to death, it would have actually been touching to see Gabrielle give Joxer a caring non-romantic kiss. Though i don't know how the kiss was described in the original script.
user avatar
User #37711238 - 12 Oct 20 19:45
That I don’t know, as far as what the script said specifically. I’ve just seen a few comments...from Rob...from Chris Mannheim. I think it would have been tricky to have a non-romantic kiss between them...while that could have been Gabrielle’s approach, that would be hard for Joxer to kiss her back in a non-romantic way...unfair to the guy almost.

User #2312150 - 11 Oct 20 01:36
Yes, i agree, the staging of the final fight between Xena and Gabrielle really robs us of what could have been a battle sequence to rival the stunning one in One Against An Army. You can clearly see at times in the background when X and G are fighting an opponent other soldiers just running around them randomly instead of all straight on attacking like they would have done. It reminds me of movies where there'd be some disaster or emergency and you'd see people all running in different directions and bumping into each other instead of just running for the exit lol Its one of the factors why this isn't a great episode for me even though there are some very good moments in it. Obviously some of the fight shots are still excellently portrayed as ever but its that element and Eve hanging from the tree that take me out of the sequence- when i see Eve hanging there it just makes me think of the baby hanging in the rafters scene from "Warrior....Princess....Tramp"! Also, i love Ares and I love Kevin Smith and there's no doubt as you say Marlie both are extremely attractive people but in this episode and the next one, there's way too much Xena/Ares making out scenes for me! I think it's down to the incredible charm of Kevin that we still enjoy Ares even when he's doing incredibly despicable things to Xena. I think in the hands of a lesser actor, we would have really hated him! One thing i do really love about this episode is it features one of the most moving Gabrielle/Joxer scenes in the series when she finally says to him that she does love him but its not the way he wants. Hearing her say she is protecting the people she loves and finally directing that at him is most welcome especially when her distraction in the first part of the episode really seems to be getting in the way of help for Joxer being a priority. So altogether for me an episode that could have been way better in many ways. Also I was happy to hear you mention Hercules because i would have been happy to have seen him have some more involvement in these Twilight episodes considering Herc was the show that introduced us to the Gods.

User #2312150 - 12 Oct 20 18:36
Also i think the idea of Ares manipulating the "Gab drag" even though you're entitled to that opinion diminishes Xena's responsibility for the violence she inflicted on Gabrielle. Ares may have pushed her buttons a little but i think her rage was still going to explode and it also diminishes Xena's sang declaration to "forgive me" for the unleashing of that dark side we know will always be a part of her. I don't think she should be let off the hook that easily for trying to kill Gabrielle in that context.
user avatar
User #37711238 - 12 Oct 20 19:53
I could still buy Xena asking for forgiveness whatever level of responsibility she had. She would still blame herself for being weak enough to have let it happen. Personally, I don’t see her rage building beyond where it would have been in Maternal Instincts, and to be honest, I’m not sure she ever expressed that particular emotion in MI. For me, it was all pain and not rage. If any of that was there, it was directed at Callisto. She saw Gabrielle multiple times after discovering Solan’s body, and I never saw rage - just pain and grief. I just can’t believe in the character of Xena (at that point in her life) actually trying to kill Gabrielle, even at her lowest. But it does make for dramatic television :)
user avatar
User #37711238 - 12 Oct 20 01:40
I agree with the others that the overall structure of the final fight is very problematic for me. The look of the fight was cool at times, but certainly not the best battle choreography in this one. You have several huge armies and they line up to attack Xena and Gabrielle a couple fighters at a time? And Xena has time to rig the harness for Eve in the midst of battle? You really have to suspend disbelief with this one. It is nice seeing so much of Kevin Smith as Ares this season given how little he was in the previous one. Ares getting into Xena’s dreams shows the power he still has over her at times. I don’t buy that it was simply Xena dreaming. He seemed pretty aware of what all she had dreamt. Callisto was able to invade Xena’s dreams back in Intimate Stranger, so I’m sure Ares could do the same thing...though I cracked up at your “5-course meal” line. And I don’t mind it because his being able to get in her head supports my Gab Drag explanation that it was driven by Ares. I don’t always love how Gabrielle was written in Season 5, this being one of those episodes. I feel like they wrote her to be harsh toward Joxer early on in the episode so there could be a resolution to that later, but it does seem odd that Xena has to be the one to ask her about the value of Joxer’s life. I guess we can consider Eve so recently being born and their being hunted by the gods causing her to act a bit out of character. Also of note, there was a “goodbye kiss” scripted between Gabrielle and Joxer that Renee and Ted wanted to nix as not right for the characters. According to Rob Tapert, “I was at the readthrough and I said, 'She can't kiss him! You know what a betrayal that would be to everything you've said?' And Renee said, 'Oh, thank you.'" We’re starting to gather a list of episodes now where scenes of Gabrielle kissing male characters in the later seasons keep magically disappearing...so different from Season 1 where she was kissing practically every guy she met. And there’s still plenty of Xena and Ares kissing for those who need that kind of thing! And I completely agree with you about the breastfeeding scene...just think that this was from 20 years ago and was unusual then, but it would still be unusual to see on TV even today!
user avatar
User #2312150 - 12 Oct 20 18:18
Actually that's not technically true about Gabrielle "kissing practically every guy she met" in Season 1 and is a bit of an exaggeration. She only really had a smooch with Iolaus (can't blame her there and they had been through a lot together in Prometheus!) and Perdicus (who she had a previous history with). Her other crushes never really went to that stage or were unrequited and Talus in Death in Chains was pretty tragic. I do actually feel though if we have to have so many scenes of Xena/Ares making out (even if some are dreams) we could at least have allowed Gabrielle to have a kiss or too. Bit of a double standard. Though I find it interesting how protective Renee was of Gabrielle kissing other characters later in the show when Lucy seemed to have no such qualms apparently!
user avatar
User #37711238 - 12 Oct 20 19:42
Well, she kissed Iolaus and Perdicus...and Sphearus...and Petracles...all within the first dozen or so episodes. I think that’s it? Didn’t say that they were life-changing kisses or anything, just that she kissed a lot of different characters early on. And I think it’s safe to assume there was a good chance of a kiss with that kid in The Titans that was offscreen since Gabrielle actually said he was almost her first! And we all know there would have been a kiss with Talus if he hadn’t been such a noble guy. So I don’t know...I don’t think it’s much of an exaggeration if any. But your view is your own. The dichotomy with Xena and Gabrielle you point out is interesting to consider...at least with Xena that focus was entirely directed at Ares, and they didn’t have a significant character for Gabrielle where that could have gone other than Joxer. So it would have either been him or the introduction of someone new.
user avatar
User #2312150 - 12 Oct 20 20:22
well she did kiss Sphearus as a distraction to escape a lecher and the thing with Petracles was more manipulation on his part so they don't really count as romantic kisses which i actually thought you were inferring. Apologies if you weren't. Who knows what happened with that guy in The Titans- though i have to say in that instance i'm glad we didn't see a kiss lol I didn't have a problem with Gabrielle's crushes though as she was a much younger character at that point and i think she obviously came to understand more about real love as the show progressed in many different contexts.
user avatar
User #35443290 - 12 Oct 20 19:43
The Joxer and Gabrielle scenes are what make this episode good to me. I didn't care much for the fight scenes and somehow didn't really feel the characters were in that much danger. It was unlikely Joxer would die due to poisoning or that Xena would lose her baby to an army. Overall, the only real "threat" I felt in this episode was Ares. His relationship with Xena is clearly more linked to sexual attraction rather than romantic attraction, their scenes in this episode used to bother me much more than they do nowadays. It's the coercion that bothers me now: I love Ares and the fact that he's not a good guy, but seeing him trying to get access to Xena's body by threatening the ones she loves is deeply uncomfortable. It's one thing trying to manipulate her into "giving in" to her dark side, it's another to outright blackmail her into giving him a child. This episode was effective in changing the way I see him, that's for sure! And yeah, Xena and Ares are basically the bisexual dream, but my Xena/Gabrielle shipper heart can't take it haha!
user avatar
User #2312150 - 12 Oct 20 20:32
Personally its behaviour like what you mentioned above, Mark, that could never make me ship Xena/Ares. Even if his feelings about her are confused (and i do think at times they are) some of what he does to her in this episode and others is pretty disturbing. I definitely qualify it as an unhealthy relationship- also because it is so linked to the dark past Xena fights to keep behind her.
user avatar
User #24561012 - 10 Oct 20 23:51
Personally I find the final fight disappointing. It's like every soldier waits her turn to attack Xena and Gabrielle. And its pretty ridiculous that when Xena strings up Eve and talks to Ares, none of the soldiers attack her.

Less farting automatically makes this better than that first two parter. Random observation, but I noticed at 13:08 how the Doctor just snatches the newspaper out of the guy's hands and he has no reaction whatsoever lol. Yeah the Tardis is alive! It was hard for me to wrap my mind around the Tardis being alive and having a soul. Didn't really have much sympathy for Blon. Hard to have sympathy for a mass murderer. Mickey was right Rose treats him like the spare. I like Rose, but it always bothered me how she treats him sometimes. This actually wasn't the original episode they had planned. The original story was titled “The Void”, and would have been set in Pompeii in A.D. 79. It would have contained the revelation that Rose's life had been artificially manipulated by the Doctor so that she would develop all the qualities of a perfect companion. I'm kind of glad they didn't go with that storyline. I don't think it would've put the Doctor in a very good light.

I always hated how Rose kept switching interests like even though she has deep love for the Doctor, she treats Mickey like crap yet STILL leads him on even though she knows deep down that she actually prefers The Doctor (even though nothing can come of that) It's not entirely her fault as the Doctor just came into her life but I wish she didn't treat Mickey like a part time boyfriend, it just makes her look really unfaithful and I hate the idea of open relationships in general (if that really is the case) Because Mickey at the moment is very emotionally attached to her. I mean they've been together for years but nah, that's just wiped off. Anyway, hope Mickey moves on because he does actually deserve better.

2 Overall thoughts- Sorry this took so long I've been busy since starting my YouTube channel. I don't know how you do it girl. Also on some basic level I don't want this to end either 😭. I also wish Herbal was there or at least they had given him some kind of real sendoff instead of having him disappear. He would have been a rock for that group. I will say of all the cliffhanger endings this is one of the more satisfying ones like Angel season 5. I want to know what happens I want to buy that book but I was okay when it ended. The one I recommend the least in terms of cliffhanger endings, Dark Matter. Do not watch that show and expect anything without being infuriated by the end. shoot their series that actually made it all the way there in that gave me annoying endings Roseanne, Big O, Lost, Game of Thrones, so the fact that this got cut short and still feels like an ending that you'd get in the east in terms of story structure, unfinished but with something oddly satisfactory about it, for the purpose that life is like that. Neat bows and story ends are rare, just new stories for the most part. I liked what they did, given what they had. But I am curious about that book. Glad you liked it too. Funny how people who just want freedom and to be left in peace always get the most hate. Like a man said, there's always a cost. Loved everything you said by the way. it was nice to see this after an episode of Inuyasha I just watched called jinenji kind yet sad, or Inuyasha does a brief rant about what it's like to be different that I really felt. Honestly him and his brother's relationship is one of the most realistic brother relationships, homicidal side aside, I've ever seen on television. and the main villain I always like to call the Grinch who stole Christmas meets Satan and I love it. to this day him and son go fighting at that castle is one of my favorite scenes in Media. For all the childlike elements, I have to skip over (luckily it's mainly whole episodes, easy skip) especially shippo, I love that show. But I love this one more and I'm sad to see it go. And if the book proves cheap enough from Germany, I would not be opposed to you reading it to us. Also not opposed to you re reacting to this with your sister, but I understand if she wants to see it sooner than later, especially with your schedule being what it is.

This is really long so I'm dividing it into three sections: 1 show thoughts- @27:56 Definitely hellboy like 28:57 Kind of you to warm your hands in preparation for the slap 🤣🤣🤣, and he only deserves the kindness because of the good direction for his arc. "No more than you or me." @31:01 LOL "people who can actually aim" @34:07 Anyone else get a Dolores Umbridge vibe here? @38:28 Yeah Logan seemed pretty impressive there. @40:40 That whole conversation especially that good Logan moment was a good example why us vs them fails. Better Max was in charge. You never want to become your enemy and she understands that. Even while admitting "he deserves to die a lot!" And her last words to him were so very iconic - agreed. And that cop gloating over their pathetic humiliation was perfect. Besides I don't know what it would have done to Joshua to kill him. Probably better if Max does it in the end. @47:08 Slayer moment. @52:09 I'm certain Max's reaction was hey Amy Dumas from WWF is it a breeding cult, who knew?

I don't want it to be over 😞. They left so many unanswered questions! Rewatching this episode made me pissed off all over again at the conclusion of this show! Who exactly is Sandeman? Do they ever find a cure for the virus? Do Max and Logan get back together? How long do they stay at Terminal City? What happened to the breeding cult? Also, to answer your question overall I prefer season 2 over season 1. I like that we get to meet "anomalies" like Joshua and get to see what Manticore was like first hand. But, I HATED that stupid virus they put in season 2, so it loses major points in my book for that. Max is my favorite character and agent White is my least favorite. He had no redeeming characteristics at all. I don't see how anyone could like him. If it's any consolation while rewatching this show with you, I decided to see if there was any type of media out there that wrapped up this story. Well it turns out there is a trilogy of books! The first book is a prequel to the show, and I'm not exactly sure when the second book is supposed to take place. But, the last book is supposed to tie up the lose ends, and give us a conclusion to the show! I haven't read any of them, but I'm especially interested in obtaining the last book. Of course the last book looks like it will be the most expensive, and hardest to get. 🙄 Thought I'd tell you in case you didn't know. Anyways it's been a pleasure rewatching this show with you! I wish more people would react to it.

3 questions answered- No favorite season, each other ups and downs. Season 1 gave me more of the individual touch of different people I liked and had Herbal and Bling, and it had a hardcore sci-fi feel. Season 2 gave me Joshua and Alec, and went deeper into morality on a larger scale, and had some real light hearted fun and a fantastically impactful finale. Characters Best cameo's the girl with mind powers, the jailed tenor, the cop that mocked white. From love to hate (long term) Original Cindy Max Herbal Believe It or Not Alec there's something very complex there Joshua Bling Logan His cop friend Normal Sketchy Lydecker Zack (sorry) That chick who I much prefer to think of as Kira from deep Space nine White Hopefully I didn't forget anyone.

it was so much fun watching this show with you. I prefer the first season, as I was more excited just to get to know the world and characters, but I agree that the second season will probably be much more enjoyable when you rewatch it. max and original сindy are my favorites. and joshua. but I'm going to miss all these characters, for sure. many questions remained unanswered, but somehow this ending gave me a sense of peace. quite inspiring and impressive.

Even though I would have loved more answers I do feel that same sense of peace, especially regarding Max her development 😊 So happy they all stood up for themselves and refused to hide any longer. Thank you!^^

I think you dislike the Snow Queen because she’s a wannabe charmed one.

Smash the Mirror Part Two- Thank you so much for your reaction for another episode that I consider to be among my favorites within this season. I know you're not enjoying the Snow Queen very much, and that's okay. I completely respect this. She isn't one of the best villains for me either, but I do really like her overall character. I just love the eeriness she emits. And I really love the dynamic between her and Gold as well. Both actors and their characters play off of one another very well. In regards to why Gold doesn't pull the Snow Queen into his hat to gain her power... it's because they have an understanding between one another. And because Gold has made a deal with her that protects her from him turning against her, as much as a part of him wishes he could take her power for himself. And you know that Gold always honors his end of the deals he makes. And as for the ribbons and why they suddenly have magical properties... back in the previous episode, The Snow Queen... Rumplestiltskin asks Ingrid and her sisters for all three of their ribbons in trade for the magical gloves and the urn to help Ingrid keep her magic contained, then Ingrid asks him why he wants them. Rumple answers, "Sometimes... with enough love, ordinary objects can come to possess their own special kind of magic." And this is exactly what has happened with the ribbons. Back then... the ribbons remained only symbols of love the three sisters shared for one another. And now... upon Emma learning to believe in herself at last thanks to Elsa, Ingrid was able to magic the three ribbons around each one of their wrists, as their bond and belief in themselves along with Ingrid's on belief within herself and in them, as well as the sisterly love that the ribbons symbolize as the ribbons become imbued by new magic just like Rumple claimed they could one day. I hope this makes sense. As for my favorite scenes... I absolutely love, love, love the scene between Hook and Rumplestiltskin, first when Killian runs towards the mansion to try to save Emma from being sucked into the hat, only for Gold to appear before him to stop him as he binds Killian to the gate in order to keep him from interfering. And second... I love the moment after Gold sees that Emma has changed her mind to go through with giving up her magic, when Killian mocks him for his failure and while Gold is disappointed, he reveals to Killian that losing Emma wasn't a complete loss. Unfortunately for Killian, the revelation the Snow Queen reveals to Gold back in the end of the previous episode... The Snow Queen, when she whispers it into his ear... is that Gold needs the heart of someone who knew him before he became the Dark One, and Gold cruelly and forcefully rips out Killian's heart, becoming in total control over Killian so that Killian is now the Dark One's puppet. Killian must obey every command Gold gives to him so long as he remains in possession of his heart. Both actors play these scenes so amazingly well. And what a reveal!! It's so phenomenal. I love each of their facial expressions, from the extreme glee and total pleasure Gold feels upon hurting his oldest enemy in one of the worst ways possible, to Killian's pain, despair, and self loathing we see on Killian's face and in his eyes once again. Absolutely marvelous!! :) Back under your reaction for Smash the Mirror Part One... I mention that Gold possibly left the map that allows for Killian to find Emma, out on the counter for Killian to find. However, I suspect that Gold actually did so for this reason... I suspect he foresaw that Killian would come to his shop seeking help to find Emma, or even knew that Killian would figure out his plans for Emma and would confront him to try to stop him, as he does later at the mansion. And so I believe that Gold most likely left the marked map out for Killian to find purposefully so that he could draw Killian to the mansion as well, since he had plans to rip out Killian's heart because it's the final ingredient needed to cleave himself from the dagger. And upon Killian's arrival, the perfect opportunity for Gold to rip out his heart is given to him. Gold always has reasons for doing everything he does. I love it! :) Another of my favorite moments... I love the moment towards the end, when Killian enters the mansion at last and shows such relief upon seeing that Emma really is okay, as he rushes up to her and pulls her into his arms. Killian loves Emma so much and Killian's expressions and his emotions prove this. I love how he kisses her in spite of Elsa still being there, and I love how Killian tells Emma that he loves every part of her when she's surprised by why he's so happy she chose not to get rid of her magic. So beautiful. And then... I also absolutely love the expressions we see slightly from both Killian and Emma, yet the emotions that are never really expressed or spoken of except through their facial expressions. Clearly, Killian is ashamed of himself, not only for keeping the truth from Emma in spite of having tried to confess it to her, but also for getting himself into the position where Gold was able to rip out his heart and to take control over him. Killian struggles so deeply with self loathing. And in this moment, it's clear Emma senses something's wrong with Killian because of how deeply he kisses her and the pain she sees in his eyes. He's overcompensating by kissing her so desperately, knowing in his mind that he loves her, and yet he can't feel his love for her as much as he does with his heart in his chest. So tragic! And this time, Killian can't tell her the truth. So sad and so beautiful. This storyline between Killian and Gold is my favorite within this Frozen arc, and throughout all of season four as well. I absolutely love it!! :) Now... I really love the overall backstory between Ingrid, Elsa, and Anna, as well as Kristoff too. Sadly, Kristoff isn't in these two episodes much, but I love every bit of what we see with him. Especially when Kristoff comes into the dining room to protect Anna upon seeing the Snow Queen threatening her. But to backtrack a little... I love how Ingrid outsmarts Anna and Elsa despite wanting to see them beat the Snow Queen. I love how Ingrid shares the story of the King from the book, The Trolden Glass, about how the King curses his kingdom so they would suffer as he did upon the loss of his daughter. I love also how she finishes, as she casts the Spell of Shattered Sight over Anna after she explains it would take too much power and too many years to be able to cast the spell over all of Arendelle. And this eventually leads ties into the very ending in Storybrooke when the Snow Queen finally gains all she needs to cast the Spell of Shattered Sight over everyone in Storybrooke as well, which she's succeeded in doing upon seeing her cause the mirror to shatter. And this is why this two part episode is titled... Smash the Mirror Part One and Two. And then... we see that once the spell wears off from Anna, after Elsa refuses to hurt her sister despite the spell forcing Anna to pull Elsa into the urn because of her unspoken rage she has suppressed from her lonely days seen throughout Disney's Frozen, that the Snow Queen freezes all of Arendelle in rage upon losing not only Elsa because Elsa was stronger in her love for Anna than she hoped, but also because Rumplestiltskin appears and magics the urn with Elsa still inside away from her. I love how Arendelle becomes frozen all over again and I love how Rumple seeks to make a deal with Ingrid. The urn and Elsa, for the Sorcerer's hat. These scenes reveal why Anna is still missing and why Elsa could only hear her sister's heartbeat from Bo Peep's crook, and it reveals how Rumple comes into possession of the urn with Elsa still trapped inside, as was revealed back in season three's finale... There's No Place Like Home. It also reveals how Elsa has no memories of Ingrid or her time spent with her because Ingrid steals her memories with one of the purple stones she appears to have collected from the Rock Trolls, and how the box containing the Sorcerer's hat came to find its way back at the Sorcerer's mansion like we saw back in season four's premiere... A Tale of Two Sisters, as we see that Ingrid chooses then to make a deal with the Apprentice and the Sorcerer instead of with Rumplestiltskin, in exchange for a doorway to finding her third sister... Emma. Brilliant!! I enjoy the scene between Rumplestiltskin and Ingrid just after the Snow Queen freezes all of Arendelle, when Rumple steals Elsa inside the urn from her in hope of making a deal with her for the box containing the Sorcerer's hat. I like how Rumple mocks Ingrid, and teases about liking Anna frozen because this way, she's less mouthy. Very funny. And now, as for the present day storyline... I absolutely love it all as well. I especially love the scene near the end between Robin and Regina, as he reveals to Regina Page 23 from the book that could have been in the book had Regina only made the decision to enter inside the tavern that night when Tinker Bell told her about her True Love. But because Regina ran away instead, a new Page 23 took its place, for reasons yet to be revealed. So beautiful. I also really love the scene between Regina and Mary Margaret as well, as Mary Margaret encourages Regina to continue to have hope and how Regina mocks Mary Margaret about having a quarter for every time she says the word, "hope". I love their conversation. Next... I enjoy the beginning scene between Emma and Ingrid as well, as Ingrid pleads with Emma not to trust Gold has her best interests at heart, while still trapped by the urn's remnants by projecting a form of herself made from her snowy magic. I absolutely love the scene between Emma and Elsa inside the Sorcerer's mansion, as Elsa helps Emma find her strength to believe in herself as much as she needs to believe in her loved ones' love for her. And I love how doing so allows Emma to gain back complete control over her magic because she's no longer afraid of it or of hurting them. Very powerful moment for sure. And I love Elsa's and Emma's relationship. They are absolutely sisters. Now... I really enjoy the moment between Emma and Gold inside the mansion as well. I love how Gold manipulates Emma so perfectly, by telling her the complete truth about his deception in order to convince her she is doing the right thing. He makes himself appear to mean well and to want to help Emma, when in truth he's only seeking out her power as a real villain does. He's so good at being so evil. It's amazing. It's sad to us because we know he's also lying to Belle, who is unaware that he's up to no good. But Belle also isn't completely blind to his deception any longer. Her moment in front of the Snow Queen's Mirror inside her lair put the doubts inside her head too. Next... I love the happy moment between the Charming family and Elsa, when Emma shows her loved ones that she's okay again, as they celebrate with fireworks in the sky above them. Sadly, Killian is unable to join them since he has been forced to enter the library in order to bring the hat back to Gold. I really wish he could have been with them, standing by Emma's side. But everyone's smiles within this moment are quite beautiful and heartwarming. :) And lastly... Gold sadly erases Killian's message to Emma from her phone so that she won't ever hear it, which really made me mad, because I would have loved to see Emma's reaction to his beautiful goodbye message to her, and I would have loved for her to learn the truth behind Gold's intentions for her through Killian, even though she most likely would have been very angry with him. However, I think she would have been even more concerned for Killian too. But even though Emma doesn't hear Killian's message to her, it takes nothing away from his words to her left within the message at the end of Smash the Mirror Part One. Overall... such sensational and fabulous episodes, so thank you so much for watching them both together, Marlie! I can't wait for your next reaction!! So beautiful!! Thank you again! Until then, my friend... Sincerely, Heidi

Though, in all seriousness, Ingrid’s circumstances are her own fault, though not for the reasons it seems. Her fear of hurting others was greater than her faith in her bond with her sisters. She blames it on her sisters not understanding her but the truth is that Ingrid didn’t understand how deeply she was loved by them. Plus if she had embraced her gifts, it’s likely she wouldn’t have accidentally killed her sister.

Jerry couldn’t have said it any better! Ingrid not understanding the power of her bond with her sisters, along with her own fear of her powers, has blinded her from seeing just how much more powerful “true” love is. This has led her to go to the crazy extremes to gain love she thought she never had, but was there the whole time! Also everyone who went through their magic for the first time have gone through it differently so who knows how Ingrid really feels (probably a lot of hurt inside that she’s hiding). You can’t come back from killing your own blooded sister:( so Realizing all this, it helps have empathy for her, and to no “Hate” her like you do 😂😂 (at least she’s a great actor to make you hate her so much...so talented she is haha)

I also really love this episode :-). I think that just because an idea, like the importance of embracing yourself, is used a LOT, doesn't mean that it's always done well or that it can never be used again. The message is too important to not continue to use forever as long as people need to hear it. I think people sometimes dismiss ideas as cliche, and forget that they are often cliche for a reason, and new generations still need to learn it and see it. Emma is one of my favorite characters in all of television, and I love that this show doesn't sideline her as many shows have with protagonists in the past when they can't figure out what to do with them next. She somehow remains compelling and doesn't lose her "bad-assery" even when she is out of her comfort zone. That's rare I think.

Smash the Mirror Part One- Thank you so very much for another fantastic episode!! I absolutely love this episode. It's not quite as strong as Part Two, but it's still very good, and I really love it nonetheless! And first, in regards to your thoughts about the abrupt ending... it only ends this way because it is a two part episode. If it was just a regular episode, I think it probably would have ended a little differently. Or maybe it would have ended with the amazing scene between Gold and the Snow Queen, which I absolutely love. This scene between Gold and Ingrid is one of my favorite scenes throughout this episode. It's just absolutely amazing, and so well acted by both Robert Carlyle and Elizabeth Mitchell (the Snow Queen). Gold often has moments within numerous episodes where he circles around a character he might be trying to outsmart of defeat for his own personal gain. So seeing him circle around Ingrid in this moment within this episode, isn't anything out of character for him. And yet... we very quickly come to see that Gold has outsmarted the Snow Queen in order to keep her from thwarting his plans for Emma by entrapping her within a circle of the remnants of the urn that had been destroyed by Elsa back in this season's premiere episode... A Tale of Two Sisters upon her arrival in Storybrooke. And like you... I absolutely seeing how Gold does this! It is absolutely brilliant! And I love his entire explanation for how he goes about collecting the remnants of the urn he had found inside Zelena's barn too. I love watching these two villains face off against one another, and seeing just how unafraid they are of the other. I just absolutely love their power struggle and how they both threaten one another like they've done since the beginning, in spite of the appearance that they aren't threatened by the other. Now... the real question is... Which of these villains will come out on top? As for another of my favorite moments, which is actually my very favorite moment throughout this episode... Of course it involves Killian, and you know it's partly because he's my favorite character and because I believe Colin O'Donoghue is just phenomenal as Captain Hook. But there's so much more to it than this too. I absolutely love the moment when Killian calls Emma the second time from within Gold's shop and confesses everything to her, even if it is over the phone. But you should try to understand... in this very moment, Killian doesn't believe he will find Emma, or Gold in time to save her himself. He has no idea where to even continue looking and he has no form of magic to find either one of them. So he leaves Emma this beautiful and heartbreaking message to her in hope that she will listen to it before she follows through with her plan to rid herself of her magic with Gold's supposed help. However, it's when Killian sees the map a few seconds later, that he quickly discovers where Emma might be heading upon Gold leaving the map behind, allowing him to see the area Gold had circled to guide Emma there. And while it's never explained... I suspect that Gold leaves the map out on his counter on purpose for Killian to find, knowing he would most likely figure out hi true intentions for Emma and that Killian would come to see him. Why? You'll see. :) I absolutely love the emotion Killian shows as he's leaving Emma this heartfelt message. Especially in the moment he admits the truth about having lied to her and how he hopes she will never forgive him, because it will mean that she will hear this message in time to save herself. Killian pours his heart out, and oh... the pain and tears in his eyes! He's so broken and I can't help but feel so heartbroken for him. This kind of emotional moment is when Colin O'Donoghue shines. He acts this scene and all throughout both of these episodes so phenomenally, and I just love him so, so much. I'm sure you must be tired of me repeating myself over how much I love Killian. I just can't help it! But this moment is just very powerful and emotional. And that's why I love it so much. And while Killian hasn't told Emma yet that he loves her through these three little words, this moment proves to us as this show's viewers that he does love Emma very deeply. :) Now, to back up a little... I enjoy the beginning scene between Ingrid and the Apprentice. I like how they talk about the Sorcerer, who may very well be Merlin like you suspected he might be. Merlin is known from all the Arthurian legends to be the most powerful of any Sorcerer to have ever lived. So it's right that you should suspect him to be this Sorcerer whom the Apprentice speaks for. Plus... the Apprentice is a character that comes from Disney's, Fantasia. As do the Sorcerer's magical hat and his magic walking broomstick. And in Fantasia, Merlin speaks to his Apprentice... Mickey. So it would make sense that this Sorcerer whom the Apprentice keeps speaking of, is Merlin. I also love how Ingrid is completely unthreatened by the Apprentice when he firmly presses his sword's blade against her throat. She doesn't scare easily. At least not anymore. Not since she remained trapped within the urn for thirty or so years. And I like how the Apprentice eventually comes to give into Ingrid's demands to help her find a new magical sister, because he knows just how important the magical hat really is. But in doing so... the Apprentice also leaves her with a warning. That her request will take time and patience. As for the scene between Emma and Henry... while a part of me wishes that it had been Killian who finds her early on in the woods, it does makes sense that Henry would find her first instead, given that he knows his mother, probably better than anyone including Killian and her parents. I like how Henry pleads with her to come home and to believe that no one is afraid of her. That he's unafraid of her. Unfortunately... she loses control of her powers again, causing her to unintentionally hurt her son. And while the cut left behind on the back of his head may appear small, it's most likely meant to be worse than it looks. Plus... he would probably have a heck of a headache from the impact. But sadly... Henry finally just leaves Emma once again like she asks of him to do so that she won't hurt him again. In regards to Emma losing control of her magic... it's like I mentioned before in my comments under your reaction for the previous episode... The Snow Queen. Ingrid merely gets so deep inside Emma's head, just like Gold does to Killian back in episode four... The Apprentice, and I really love the parallels between their storylines within these two episodes. But back to why Emma is continuing to lose control... It's not because she becomes jealous of her brother like you initially thought, but because she's been reminded that she had to grow up all alone, causing Emma to completely begin to doubt herself and loose faith in her strength as the Savior. She's become distrusting that anyone could ever fully love her completely for exactly who she is with or without her magic. Which is why she's so quick to be afraid that her parents really do fear her more than they've ever admitted before. Ingrid is most definitely very clever because she knows all too well the right things to say and do in order to convince Emma that her loved ones fear her, while she does not. And what's worse... is that to a small degree, Ingrid is right. Emma's parents did fear Emma's magic upon seeing her boil the milk in the bottle when she becomes upset in the beginning, then again upon learning Emma broke the hole through the side of the station, and especially upon seeing her lose complete control of her magic, which nearly causes a lamppost to fall on Hook, until David pushes him out of the way and is hurt when it strikes him instead. Even though their sudden fear is purely instinct and not really any fault of theirs. Sadly, things only become worse when she sees she has hurt her father and nearly hurts the man she is falling in love with, and especially when Mary Margaret immediately cries out her name with fear of her in her eyes, even if it is only seen for a split second. By this point, the Snow Queen has gotten so deep inside Emma's head, that she can't any longer control her own powers, making her lose complete control. Like magic works for anyone who possesses it... Emma's magic is connected to her emotions. So because she feels so out of control right now, so is her magic. I hope all of this helps you to understand what's happening with her. I also like the mother/son moment later between Regina and Henry as well, when she encourages her son to believe he has more power within him even though he doesn't have magic, because he not only is the Heart of the Truest Believer, but because he is the one who brought their family all together and has helped make it possible for each of the three curses to have been broken. Plus... she reminds him that heroes always win. I also like how Regina doesn't push him into talking to her about what's bothering him, until she senses he's ready to, while biding her time by reading comic books with her son too. So cute! :) Next... I like the scene between Emma and the Snow Queen in the woods as well. I like how Ingrid tries to convince Emma to listen to her as she offers her what is actually really good advice, even if she does so with the hope of bringing Emma over onto her side. That the only way her fear will end is by embracing who she really is. Sounds like good advice. As for the continued storyline between Regina and Robin having an affair while Marian is still frozen... I completely agree with your thoughts about them being together. I do love Regina and Robin together. Absolutely. I just really hate that once again... we have two more characters having an affair, because I cannot stand affair storylines, and I most certainly do not condone affairs whether they are fictional, or real. Regina and Robin being together is wrong and while their scenes together both in The Snow Queen and in this episode are adorable... I still wish the writers had written their story just a little differently, so that they could be together without there being a repeat of David's and Mary Margaret's overarching storyline throughout season one. I wish Robin could have held onto his conviction and moral code. But with all that being said... I really love how Regina shares with Robin her story about Tinker Bell's help in finding her True Love, and how her fate is decided by the Author who wrote her as the Evil Queen in all of her stories within Henry's storybook. Which leads me to my thoughts on Robin enlisting Will to help him find more answers about the Author... I really like these scenes between these two thieves. And it makes sense that he would ask for Will's help, because Robin knows that Will has lived in Storybrooke far longer than he has, and if there's anyone who might know of anything... it would be Will. Since he is after all a thief and known for being highly observant. And I love how Will takes Robin to the library so they can begin searching for answers there. The moment Will attempts to break in again is hilarious, especially when Robin opens the door upon recognizing that the library's still open. Very funny. I like the dynamic between them. :) As for the backstory revealed so far between Elsa, Anna, Ingrid, and briefly Kristoff as well... I really enjoy the overall backstory. I like how Ingrid admits to Elsa the truth about Anna being locked down in the dungeons, yet lies about the circumstances of her having been locked up. However, I love when it's revealed that Elsa had played her aunt by pretending to believe everything she had told her about her sister trying to betray her. As for why Elsa and Anna are so untrusting of their own guards... I suspect it's because they fear that Ingrid might have influenced them all to stand with her, either through magic, or perhaps she may have simply paid them off to stand with her. I doubt it's because Ingrid would have become the rightful Queen of Arendelle upon her return, especially since no one can actually prove she is who she claims to be given that no one actually remembers her. I think it's simply because Ingrid is very conniving. Plus... Elsa, Anna, and Kristoff don't trust anyone so easily, especially since the events played out within Disney's, Frozen between them and Prince Hans. He did after all play on their trust and then betrayed them. So I think this makes sense. Elsa, Anna, and Kristoff simply choose to trust in themselves and no one else. And yes... it is Prince Hans who is frozen within Ingrid's wardrobe where Anna finds the urn hidden as well. After the Snow Queen had frozen him back in the third episode... Rocky Road when he had attempted to pull Elsa into the urn, unintentionally freeing her instead. As for the scenes between Killian, David, Mary Margaret, and Elsa, while they're all worried about trying to find Emma... I enjoy the scenes overall. I love the humor when Killian talks about going to get whichever dwarf Emma most despises so he can go talk with her upon them believing she doesn't want to talk with any of those she's closest to. I also love how Killian is silently and wearily concentrating on trying to find Emma by studying the maps of the woods, while listening to the conversations going on around him. And upon hearing Mary Margaret's end of Emma's call, Killian then leaves the Charmings' loft to try to call Emma, then to confront the Crocodile, knowing full well that Gold intends to use the Sorcerer's hat to steal Emma's magic, just like he witnessed Gold do to the Apprentice. You can really see his worry for Emma in his eyes and on his face. Very sad. Oh... and it's hilarious how Killian once again is confused by what to call his cell phone upon calling it a talking phone, after which David halfheartedly teases him about it just being called a phone to which Killian then responds, "What an impractical name. Be back in two shakes." So funny!! :) As for your thoughts about Elsa's intentions upon overhearing David's and Mary Margaret's conversation about them accepting Emma's decision to rid herself of her magic... you will have to wait and see what she's up to, which will be answered in Smash the Mirror Part Two. However, I actually really like David's and Mary Margaret's conversation about their daughter. It makes absolute sense with Mary Margaret being unsure if Emma destroying a part of herself is a good decision for their daughter to make because she is speaking from her heart and because her being the Savior means so much to who Emma has become, while David is more rational and logical by believing that Emma is right to make this decision because it would mean that the reasons for the Snow Queen wanting Emma would be taken away from her and therefore... Emma would be safe from the villainess' threat. I appreciate hearing both sides, and I can absolutely understand both sides. And lastly... I also really love the scene inside Gold's shop between Gold and Emma as well. I love seeing Gold walk in to find that a number of the trinkets and items within his shop are moving and are being turned on by Emma's out of control magic. I love that gold of course knows right away that it's all because Emma is trying to hide in his shop from everyone. But more so... I love how Emma asks Gold for his help to take away her magic so that she can be free from her burden and fear of hurting those she loves. And while Emma believes him when he tells her he can help her, of course Gold is lying. And unfortunately, because Emma is so desperate, she doesn't sense his lies. I love how Gold comes up with a story about having a very powerful spell that can take away her magic, but that it's so dangerous given that the powers he's taking away from her is Savior magic. What a clever way of drawing her to where she will be all alone, and where he will be able to steal her magic by pulling her into the Sorcerer's hat. Love it!! Oh... and in regards to Killian's role throughout this story arc... there's still a lot to come for him, that stems from the reawakened rivalry between Hook and Rumplestiltskin, that is especially brought out further from the events between them within the fourth episode... The Apprentice. And what's to come is fantastic!!! I can't wait!!! Thank you so much once again for your reaction, Marlie! I really enjoyed watching this episode again with you, and I enjoyed watching your reaction for it. I can't wait for your reaction for Smash the Mirror Part Two!! And thank you for reacting to both parts together. You're amazing! So, until then, my friend...

Can’t comment on the other two eps you watched. It’s getting cold and this feels appropriately. But yeah The Gloves are what’s featured in Frozen. Gerda and Elsa’s father gift the gloves to her so she could control her magic after also almost killing Anna at a young age. But they die at sea after and adheres to her parents barbaric attitude of seclusion and hiding her power at such an impressionable age. Also Duke of Weasleton is part of Frozen as well hence why he didn’t die. If you ever wanna watch the spinoff you can. Again. Will’s role isn’t something to get attached to as they NEVER explain his motivations (and this is not being spoilery as there’s literally NOTHING to spoil cuz it feels like they don’t know what to do with him especially since his backstory was already touched and wrapped in the Spin Off that no one saw). But Snow Queen was so banana cuckoo and it makes sense as she’s been trapped in the urn for YEARS. Forced to remember what she did to her sister and what her other sister did to her. It ROYALLY screwed with her head like it would for any person in a solitary isolation cell. Doesn’t make what she’s doing currently right. But for me it did help explain why the SQ is doing every form of mental gymnastics to believe in this. Ingrid doesn’t think she crazy. But obviously everyone else knows she’s next level CREEPY crazy. I do like that this is FINALLY Emma’s first (personal) big villain. Rumple had Peter Pan. Regina had the Wicked Witch. It’s just very intriguing to have Emma face one herself. Cuz I literally went thru this episode like “wow this girl is truly crazy. Like she TRULY believes in this sick cause of replacing her sisters and take it legitimately. Can I please have Triple Scoops of YIKES for me Queenie?”

The Snow Queen- Such a good episode. I really like it a lot. It isn't one of my favorites from this season, but it is quite emotional and beautiful nonetheless. It's too bad that you're not too big of a fan of the Snow Queen, but I understand and I'm still hoping you will grow to like her more by the end of her storyline. With all that being said... thank you so much for another fun and exciting reaction for Once Upon a Time!! :) Ingrid's backstory has finally been revealed and it's quite tragic with Helga dying from a frozen heart when Ingrid looses control over her magic, then is soon pulled inside the urn by her third and youngest of the sisters, Gerda, upon her becoming afraid of Ingrid. And here we have answers as to how the Snow Queen became trapped within the urn from when we see Prince Hans set her free in trying to get rid of Elsa back in this season's third episode... Rocky Road. And why Ingrid has become the Snow Queen, as her fear, anger, and hatred consumes her for all the years she remained trapped inside that urn, turning her into a villain. It's all tragically brilliant! However, I don't just feel bad for Ingrid. Her backstory is heartbreaking, so I feel bad for her in the past timeline, as well as for her sisters absolutely. Yes... it's heartbreaking that Gerda turns on her, but she did just lose her other sister when Ingrid lost control of her powers because she became angry. The Duke was a jerk and I wanted to see him get punished, but Helga jumped in front of him to protect him, because it was the right thing to do. She didn't want her sister to turn into a villain that all of Arendelle would have seen her as had Ingrid killed him. And while the Duke is a jerk for saying all those horrible things, he didn't deserve to die for them. Gerda lost both of her sisters that day and it's tragic. And of course she had become afraid of her sister after that moment upon seeing that Ingrid had killed Helga. And rightly so. And this brings me to why I can understand why Gerda and her husband later on had come to wish to get rid of Elsa's magic as well. They most definitely had a responsibility to protect their daughters, as well as the people of their Kingdom as well. And after all that Gerda went through after losing her sister Helga to Ingrid's magic, and having to imprison Ingrid inside the urn... it's no wonder why she was worried for Elsa too. I don't think she so much feared her daughter, but more so that she feared for her, knowing the pain Ingrid suffered upon being seen as a monster so much so, that it eventually caused her to lose control. I understand why Elsa's and Anna's parents did all they did to try to keep Elsa from using her magic and to keep Anna from ever knowing about Elsa's magic. It's tragic that it led to Elsa and Anna being separated most of their childhood as they grew up, but I understand. And it's sad that Elsa's and Anna's parents lost their lives in trying to free their daughters from that kind of pain Gerda suffered through. Also... I too love the parallels between the Snow Queen's backstory and the Disney movie, Frozen... especially in regards to Ingrid's and Elsa's characters, and sadly now Emma too. There are so many parallels and it makes me love even more that this Frozen arc storyline for the Disney movie's characters, takes place five years after the events seen in Frozen and that it isn't a different take on their story like so many other characters' stories are. Not that the other stories are bad by any means because I love them all. It's just nice to see a new story expanded from an old one, rather than being rewritten like so many others. But back to this episode's present day storyline... I really enjoy seeing it unfold, with Emma's growing fear of herself the more the Snow Queen gets inside her head. And that's why Emma looses control of her magic. Not because she becomes jealous, but because she's reminded that she had to grow up all alone, causing her to doubt herself and loose faith in her strength, as well as to become distrusting that anyone could ever love her. Which is why she's so quick to be afraid that her parents really do fear her more than they've ever admitted. Ingrid is most definitely very clever because she knows all too well the right things to say and do in order to convince Emma that her loved ones fear her, while she does not. And what's worse... is that to a small degree, Ingrid is right. Emma's parents did fear Emma's magic upon seeing her boil the milk in the bottle when she becomes upset in the beginning, then again upon learning Emma broke the hole through the side of the station, and especially upon seeing her lose complete control of her magic, which nearly causes a lamppost to fall on Hook, until David pushes him out of the way and is hurt when it strikes him instead. By this point, the Snow Queen has gotten so deep inside Emma's head, that she can no longer control her own powers, making her lose complete control. Sadly, things only become worse when she sees she had hurt her father and nearly hurt the man she is falling in love with, and especially when Mary Margaret immediately cries out her name with fear of her in her eyes, even if it was for a split second. As for Killian accidentally calling Emma a monster moments earlier when they first see Emma step out of the station through the rubble left behind by the hole in the wall... of course Emma took that to mean he was calling her a monster, but when he says "monster", it is because he believed that the Snow Queen had blasted the hole through the wall. Not Emma. Killian would never call Emma a monster or hurt her intentionally in any way. He never once has feared her, and he doesn't even now. And when Emma starts to run away, he is the only one of the group to attempt to go after her until Emma pushes him away and runs to her car to drive off. The others are still shocked and afraid in this moment. I just love Killian all the more for how much he loves Emma and tries so hard to protect her, even if he makes mistakes in doing so along the way. Killian's show of love for Emma in this moment with Killian is why this is one of my favorite moments within this episode. As for Mary Margaret's fear of her daughter... I agree with you that no one is really to blame for what's happened to Emma, except of course for the Snow Queen. Mary Margaret's fear comes out purely from instinct, not because she fears her Emma. Because she doesn't, and she proves this by admitting David, Killian, and Elsa that she, or they messed up. I certainly don't blame Mary Margaret for what's happened either. Another of my favorite moments in this episode, is the brief scene inside the clock tower when Killian, David, and Elsa are examining the fake mirror the Snow Queen planted up at the top of the stairs, until Belle comes in and immediately tells them to stop staring into it. I love it when Hook states, "It must be broken, because I've been staring at it all day, and I think I'm even more devilishly handsome and charming than usual." I can't help it... I just absolutely love it when he teases the others about how good he looks. :) Next... I like how the Snow Queen plants a fake mirror to draw Emma into her trap so she would be able to speak with her alone, which causes all of the trouble Emma is now in. As I said before... Ingrid is very clever. I also absolutely love the brief scene between Killian and Gold in Gold's shop after the others leave to help Emma when she becomes trapped inside the police station as well. These two characters are brilliant whenever they're in a scene together. I just love seeing their continued rivalry, and I love that Killian just knows Gold all too well to not believe a word he says. And he's absolutely right. :) As for Robin's storyline with Regina and Will... I do absolutely love Regina and Robin together. However, this storyline, while the moment Robin returns to Regina inside her vault and tells her today he doesn't feel like being the man who follows his code, then kisses her is beautiful, and you really want it to happen... I still just hate this storyline overall as a whole because again, it's another love triangle that causes so many unneeded problems that I felt were unnecessary to the show's overall series. I still hate love triangles, and in this case... Robin is actually having an affair like David and Mary Margaret had throughout season one. However, this scene with Robin and Regina is beautiful. And I like the scene between Robin Hood and Will Scarlet inside Granny's Diner too, as Will reminds Robin of why Marian loved him, after Robin tells Will why he fell in love with Marian too, as he's apparently done many, many times. And lastly... another of my favorite moments in this episode is the very end scene between Rumple and Ingrid, when she comes to his shop seeking to make a deal with him at last. I just love the whole conversation between them about how Ingrid wishes to take full control over Storybrooke, while Rumple then can take power throughout the rest of the world should they succeed in getting everything they want. I love that Ingrid seeks to take back hers and her sisters' ribbons, in exchange for her telling Gold of a secret ingredient he doesn't yet know about that is needed to help cleave him from his dagger. I even love how Ingrid just whispers the answer into his ear in order to leave us as the audience in deeper suspense. I can't wait!!! There's so much good to come and I'm so excited for you to see how this story continues to unfold. These next several episodes are phenomenal and are all among my favorite episodes for season four. Thank you very much and I am so excited for more to come!!! Until next time...

I like this episode. But one thing I don't like is that we are introduced three god killing weapons just in the first half of Season 5. Light Chakram, The Dagger of Helios and The Rib of Cronos.

I wasn’t around for the Xena/Herc timing poll, so I can’t speak to how that turned out. And I haven’t watched a lot of Herc beyond the Xena-related episodes, so it seems we’ll get to go through that together. I don’t expect I’ll be as invested in Herc as I am with Xena (though that isn’t entirely fair - I’m not as invested with any show like I am with Xena), but I’m definitely looking forward to seeing the other appearances of all the Hercverse/Xenaverse actors I know. And curious to see which story ideas went to Herc as opposed to the ones that went to Xena, since a lot of the production staff overlapped. It’s nice to see Herc back on Xena considering we haven’t seen him since Season 1’s Prometheus. I agree with Tony that this episode seems like it has a bit too much story to tell (half a Herc episode and half a Xena episode, though each could have been their own - would have been cool as a 2-parter with 1 actual Herc episode and 1 Xena episode, both as crossovers). I think that’s why I like it, but don’t love it. The Hades recasting is the actor who played Flanagus (the Greek father fighting as a Roman) in A Good Day, and I also agree with others that I don’t prefer this portrayal, though not faulting the actor as it was more scripting/direction. My guess is the actor wasn’t available (remembering that it isn’t easy for actors to drop in to New Zealand). As for Solan, it’s a shame they had to recast, but I’m sure the original actor was getting past puberty and it wouldn’t have looked right. Finally we see that Ares actually does love Xena, but he has made quite a destructive mess over the years trying to figure that out and he has no clue how to show it. Him loving her doesn’t forgive everything he’s done, but you can start to look at him in a different light. I love the birth scene...Xena is hot and wants the coat off, then she’s cold and wants it back on, and poor Gabrielle is trying to do whatever she says. Then Gabrielle tries to get her to visualize, and Xena tells her to be quiet. One last comment...I can’t believe they subtitled Solan whispering to Xena to name the baby Eve...spoiler alert! They should have just indicated that Solan whispers unintelligibly. That was the point...you’re not supposed to know what he said until Xena reveals it at the end! Way to go, person in charge of subtitles! :(

You’re right; revealing Solan’s whispered words was major subtitle screw-up.

User #20384928 - 1 Oct 20 23:50
First of all, get well soon. 👍🏻 A point of clarification: Hercules and Xena were both six seasons. Herc’s sixth season was very short, as A) Kevin Sorbo’s contract was up and he wanted to do other things, and B) there were different people in charge of the studio who weren’t interested in continuing the series, as they already had the requisite 100 episodes and figured “hey, cancel Hercules and we’ll just make new shows and do 100 of them!” The two shows made to replace Hercules, Jack of All Trades and Cleopatra 2525, lasted one season and two seasons, respectively. 😐 Anyway, when I first saw this episode, I thought it was the greatest of either series. I no longer feel that way, but I still think it’s the best of Xena’s fifth season. It’s just so huge. ... I don’t recall this version of Hades (you’re right, it was a recast) ever appearing on HtLJ, although I’m not certain off the top of my head. I prefer Erik Thompson, the previous lord of the Underworld. ... I was in favor of Herc reconciling (sort of) with Hera, but not so much in favor of her confusing end with Zeus’ spin cycle of doom. ... I know I was one of those advocating for your watching Herc and Xena together, (in part because of this episode) but I actually am excited about you eventually watching it after Xena at some point. I think it’ll be interesting, and you may recognize some old friends along the way. 😁 ...Again, I hope you feel better, and that was really good!

As good as this episode is, i've always felt it should have been a two-parter because it feels at times like almost too much is crammed into it and i feel some scenes/storylines could have benefitted even more from the extra time. Also being a fan of the Hercules show, this is a pretty good and powerful resolution to his relationships with Zeus and Hera and even though its spoiled you a lot before you actually react to the Hercules series i still think there's a lot of surprises in it you will still enjoy. But i would have liked for some elements of it to have been less rushed. Also to this day i'm not really happy with the recasting of Hades and Solan- Hades seems such an 180 degrees turnaround from the character previously established in Hercules and Xena it really is hard to reconcile its the same person- I mean when did Hades become such a sinister JERK? And including Solan seems a bit too much overkill in an episode already bursting at the gills with so much and rather undermines the ending of The Bitter Suite in some respects. The Elysian Fields concept in both shows could be inconsistent at times and this doesn't really tally with the "dead can hear our thoughts" concept previously mentioned. But apart from those criticisms there's still a lot of power to moments of this episode and its nice to see Kevin Sorbo do a crossover into Xena again as its been a long time! And as he played a pivotal part in Xena's character evolution its fitting to see him here again fighting with her and helping to protect her at a crucial moment of her life. Funny to see him with shorter hair though! That music cue you really liked towards the end of the episode is a classic track often used in Hercules and is on one of that series' soundtracks. By the way, can i just say your talk about having no problems with skeletons fighting had me laughing for over 10 minutes in your review.....Even if you weren't feeling so good doing these recordings (and I hope you feel better) you still greatly entertained! :-)

User #20384928 - 2 Oct 20 01:36
I agree about the inconsistency about the Elysian Fields, although in my own head I can reconcile the idea that people can hear the living think of them and yet still not realize that they’re dead. But yes, it’s a bit loose.

User #2312150 - 2 Oct 20 02:18
Yes the music to that final battle with Zeus scene is on the Xena Volume 6 soundtrack and is called "End Of Days" but the particular cue used at the moment Zeus is about to strike down Xena, Gabrielle and Eve is one that has been used in the Hercules TV movies and series a few times and even though its part of that track that part exists in a longer cue on one of the Hercules CDs.

For me, this one is a fairly serviceable clip show episode...some cute moments, but not especially memorable. It is nice to have a clip show that focuses on the funny bits rather than the drama. I appreciate that the plot thread of Gabrielle having stopped being a bard hasn’t been dropped because she really does need to find that part of herself again. And I also like continuing to grow the Gabrielle/Aphrodite connection. I have to wonder if they came up with this story idea and then had to find that miniature Argo or if they discovered the horse and decided to write an episode around it. It’s a pretty bizarre specific story idea otherwise.

User #2312150 - 2 Oct 20 00:58
Glad you enjoyed this one as its another of my favourite comedy episodes of the series and I always watch this one if I'm ever a little down because it soon cheers me up. The shopping/store scene i absolutely love also and together with minature Gabrielle is an absolute hoot (my Mum loves this episode and always breaks up at Gabrielle's squeaky voice) Apart from all the wackiness and fun in this one (even if we do have to see THAT rabbit scene again!!) as a writer I appreciate the storyline with Gabrielle trying to find her inspiration again and the resolution and realisation she has at the end of the episode is very nice. As much as i have enjoyed fighting Gabrielle, its genuinely nice to see her writing a scroll again and her continuing relationship with Aphrodite is a source of enjoyment too- love their discussion/slumber party in this ep. As for the pie fight, according to Renee those pies had been left quite a while before shooting started and were actually pretty darn hard when they hit you in the face.......
user avatar
User #20384928 - 2 Oct 20 00:20
Yep, a pie fight! I think it’s right that Xena finally take a pie to the face at the end. ... I don’t know where else to mention this, so I’ll do it here. I believe it would now be safe (from a spoiler perspective) to play the video game Xena: Warrior Princess Talisman of Fate. It’s a fighting game for the Nintendo 64 from 1999 that I think is pretty fun, if you’re into that kind of genre. (You have now seen all characters and their alternate costumes, I believe.)

Thank you so much for another great episode reaction for Haven! I like this episode a lot. And I really love the concept of the "trouble" shown in this episode as well. Very ingenious. Again, as for how this "trouble" works for Vickie, who draws a person or thing, or even a whole landscape that can then be destroyed or reshaped in some way by a mere touch... just as it was revealed within the last episode, "troubles" come out through stress. All "troubles" work this way. Vickie's father was in trouble with Richards, he was then held hostage, and she was then forced to do things for Richards in order to protect her father. On top of all that... the rumors of the "troubles" have begun to spread and therefore everyone is more on edge than usual. This is often why we've seen Audrey suddenly begin to yell at people she and Nathan might suspect as their "troubled" person. She knows that the added stress of her aggravating them will cause them to lose it and reveal themselves to her and Nathan. Once again... I love seeing Nathan struggling with showing emotion, partly caused because he's unable to physically feel. There's more to it, but he really despises himself because of being unable to feel and he's never allowed himself to grow close to anyone because of it. As you might imagine... part of being in a relationship with someone, requires physical touch, and Nathan doesn't really know what that feels like. I really appreciate seeing his awkwardness. Overall... another fantastic episode and a fun reaction! So thank you again, so much! Thank you! Until next time, my friend...

I don't think the characters are supposed to be particularly likable especially in the beginning. I've seen some people describe this show as addicting. You're not entirely sure why your watching it, but you look up and you've watched a whole season lol. My favorite part of the show is the music. I actually like some of the Glee versions of songs better than the originals. Emma has obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and mysophobia (fear of germs). Oh and I remember you describing the Doctor Who pilot as "out there" and "unique" too. I guess I pick weird shows 😆. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

With your reaction to the cliffhanger ending I can’t wait for the episode 2 reaction lol! Yes that is Rachel McAdams from Mean Girls, the Notebook, Sherlock Homes, Disobedience and a lot more. They set up so much in this episode, but some of it won’t be clear until later. Everything has a purpose and gives you information about the characters or the world [much like Babylon 5]. There are no empty scenes. Love that. You picked up on a lot of the contrasts laid out. Passion vs finances, past vs the present, starting out with your dreams in front of you vs living with your dreams behind you almost like nightmares haunting you. Past vs Present: You get it with the Oliver, Ellen and Geoffrey pretty straightforwardly. Also with Kate and her old teacher. She has a certain fond memory of being his student. But in the present he’s clearly trying to live his dreams through her success and has grown to hate teaching [maybe he hated it back then too]. How the present can make you rethink the past. That opening bit with Geoffrey was more riveting theatre then anything in Oliver’s play. Love that storm scene too. The shift from drama to lights going out and “oh nuts!” is charming. Then the cut from that scene to Oliver staring at sheep is great. That’s the thing he’s obsessed about, props not the story or the play itself. Ellen does come off a bit harsh this episode in the present, but she’s clearly frustrated because she still cares about the “the details”, the art. The phone conversation is the highlight for me too. They gave us just enough info for us to understand the emotions in play for both without knowing the specifics. Geoffrey only responds when he hears Ellen mentioned, and Oliver for all his drunken openness and self-pitying mood hangs up before Geoffrey can tell him why no one wants to talk to him. He really doesn’t want to hear, it would hurt too much, even if he could guess it, hearing the “truth” or your worst fears can be hard. The instrumental score is fantastic, but I don’t think I noticed it until my second watch. The music highlight: The reflective melancholic music that comes in as Oliver overhears people talking shit about him in the restroom moves us into his headspace as he spirals into drunken melancholy. Leading him to make the call later. I’m so jealous you visited Shakespeare Globe Theater. That’s awesome!! I went to the Stratford Shakespeare festival in Canada which this show is a homage and parody of. It also cast a lot of stage actors and the writers are people familiar with the festival. I love going to plays locally at least whenever I can afford it, pre covid19 at least. There’s a great Shakespeare theater company about 3 hours from my house. I use to go 3-4 times a year. The show works even if someone has no interest in theater [though that helps] because it’s also a workplace dram/comedy As I’ve said before, Buffy is my fav show overall, but episode to episode this is my fav. Honestly if it had even 50 episodes of similar quality it would easily be my favorite show overall. I think it’s obvious I’m hyped to see your reactions. Glad the first episode has you interested.

No empty scenes!? Way more shows need that tbh haha. I'm going to pay more attention to the score next time :) Happy to see they actually cast stage actors and have knowledge of the festival. Feels right to support the industry the show is portraying. When the situation gets better I should take a look around here and see if I can finally get to see another play :D Thank you!

I think you’re a fan of Babylon 5 and Buffy so I’d guess you might like it! The writing is just as great. It’s a little slow at first and is not a genre show but its mixes humor with drama like those two shows. I’m always pushing it on people irl so why not online too :D

User #17044442 - 28 Sep 20 23:24
@20:32 Never understood the nerves of acting on stage. It's fantastic. You get to be someone else and the audience disappears. Kind of addictive. Although I did do a musical once and learned a valuable lesson. The audience doesn't disappear during my poor attempts at choreographed dance. Definitely freestyle artist there yikes. two tricks to line memorization one really getting the emotional headspace of your character. And two use strips attached to sticky tabs, to cover your lines that you can lift when you need it. Though I have noticed I cried a fee times trying to put together the pup songs for my YouTube channel lol. So I get what you mean. I hate being stuck off key in places. The people listening to the hockey game cracked me up. As did the behind the scenes "beat them with sticks" and "now that is theatre" talk. @35 ish heartbreaking Galaxy Quest moment @37:23 I think I love this show. Same as both of you, the phone moments. Wait they killed off my final investment in the show with the irony of Canada's best Ham? As a cliffhanger!!!!???? Lol you dancing "is he dead or not?!" 🤣🤣🤣🤣😅😅😅 But yes rude ending. And yet curious now. Great pilot, right up there with Eureka. I can ever manage the funds, that will be on your pilot list, not so much to react to such a little known series but to get other people watching it. Art to make money, it's a delicate balance that done right can keep the standards for art high, done wrong endless, uninspired remakes. Including plays I've been in roughly 8 for me, all but 2 local. So definitely want to do more someday. I had a little trouble putting the plot lines together as well, so don't feel bad. Luckily it becomes obvious by the end. @59:00 My theory? He wanted into their romantic relationship. And while if he wants three ways, that's his thing, but something about it felt pushy, the "b@$t@rd$ part, like you can't force someone to have interest in you or be into your tastes. That's their choice. Something tells me he used her to get into their business as a form of jealousy. Least that's my theory. She probably stayed for her career and wouldn't leave with her love post cheat. Excited to find out as it's so very theater if true.

"Everybody lives!" is an iconic scene and "Are you my mommy?" an iconic line. Though personally, my fav line will always be "Rose, I'm trying to resonate concrete", the delivery is just too good. I adore this two-parter, it's definitely a step-up from the first one. I've seen it many times and I still react when Dr. Constantine turns into an empty person, it was just so creepy! Captain Jack definitely made up for trying to con Rose and the Doctor and I'm very glad he didn't die. And yeah, that's John Barrowman, who played the Dark Archer in Arrow! I think they did well by placing this life-affirming story right after "Father's day", which can be considered the saddest episode of the show so far (though Dalek is quite tragic too). I definitely agree you don't need to make something tragic to make it memorable or great. Emotional rollercoasters are great, but rollercoasters need some ups. Anyway, great reaction and review, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Another great reaction. This series definitely has a special place in my heart. Each one has gems and those episodes that are maybe not as good comparatively speaking. (This two parter is definitely in the gems category!) What is often extremely enjoyable about following a reaction series, is that you get to see each episode through a fresh pair of eyes. This can reinvigorate your appreciation. I think you are going to provide that on a weekly basis. When you smile I smile. 😁

Loved your reaction to Doctor Constantine's transformation :) Please bear in mind two things: 1) This was originally broadcast at around 6pm on Saturday,when most families in the UK would be having tea - so it would have had even greater horror impact;2) you have the luxury of immediately watching part 2,and getting the resolution. At the time,kids would have been left in suspense for a whole week. Oh,the nightmares they would have had! ....welcome to Doctor Who :D

When this show goes creepy it goes creepy lol. I just knew the gas mask transformation was going to gross you out.

@7:00 one thing Alex sees that Max clearly doesn't is that Joshua is an adult who has real needs and can't just live his life cooped up with no real socialization or future. Glad she learned it by the end. @8:45 Ah the junk DNA theory, like looking at a book in a language you can't read and tossing it. @15:13 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Yeah I'll admit, I prefer real twins. Much harder to tell apart the fake ones. @19:30 Take your best friend With You! Or at least offer!!!! Happy she stayed. @20:15 LOL "Don't be like me, keep it concise." Same! @30:21 Already devolving into kinds. How do they think they got hunted in the first place? Allowance for that kind of social behavior. Ideological is the closest that gets to rationality but for two simple flaws in that as well. 1) We all have our blind spots and can't guarantee we aren't wrong in our beliefs. 2) People are complex, not robots. I have many friends who may be enemy or neutral on some topics while helpful allies in others. And it's important to listen to other voices for those reasons. Not necessarily adopt but soften yourself to not become so militant as to become the monster you fear in life. LOL I don't know why but someone fighting themselves never ceases to make me laugh. @33:55 I too vote yes! 😅 Fe'nos F@ckoff 🤣 @42:20 I'm glad I have a reactor that thinks in nuance. How people feel about the ending is pretty individual. So you're right, we'll see.

Yay! Another Babylon 5 reaction! Great way to go into the weekend here! I'm really glad you liked this episode, Marlie, but had a feeling you would. Loved your comments on the acting of O'Hare, the lighting and direction, music and your speculations and thoughts on the revelations in this episode- always most welcome! :-) As you say it's hard to watch Sinclair go through so much trauma but at the same time you want to know more about what he can't remember...and I'm glad you're intrigued and want to know more. I still can't believe there are some people who to this day rate O'Hare's acting as "wooden", i came across one such quote the other day. His performances are always strong in my opinion and he has a definite gravitas that can move well between softness and reflection and pure full on intensity- the flashback to the Battle of the Line is exceptionally powerful as you said. One really cool character moment that is often overlooked in this episode because of all its genuinely gripping drama and moodiness is Dr Franklin's revelation that he destroyed his notes that could have been used to launch biological warfare against the Minbari in the war. This is a great statement on Franklin's morality and dedication to preserving all life, especially great to hear in a universe that you're already picking up on in this show has some very dark and troubling things going on in it.......Congratulations also for realising so early on that Sinclair was already in the cybernet :-)

I'm absolutely shocked that O'Hare's acting was considered wooden. What?? The fact I can read his facial expressions among other things prove otherwise. How weird and I hope he wasn't hurt by those weird remarks. You describe precisely why his performances always draw me in. Dr Franklin continues to surprise me 😊 Thank you!

Fingers crossed! Just got back from the pub for a pre-lockdown (responsibly table-service distanced meet) with a couple of friends, so lightly toasted, but I just have to say upon watching another great reaction again. I'll reply tomorrow spoiler free with thoughts and intriguing questions when I'm sober and less prone to waffle, but I have to say I'm very happy that you're rating Michael O'Hare's performance as Sinclair up there with Peter Jurasik as Londo. I always thought he did a great job as Sinclair and felt that critics didn't get it back in the day. I've also just got to thank you for the best B5 reactions in town, but also Tony for funding this. Tony! You're a minor god who struts heroically amongst men, possibly with a cool disco beat behind you. Once again I offer to carry your episode sponsoring burden for a few episodes - or to team up Chosen-One willing and throw more cash for more B5 goodness. Failing either... can I buy either of you a pint? I feel I need to stand my round on this, so to speak, be it tasty coffees or craft beer goodness or owt besides. x

Thanks for the shout-outs, Peter and Barbara! I do quite like the thought of walking to a disco beat especially being a child of the 70's! Thanks Peter for also offering to want to take up sponsoring the show. Marlie has stated there may be a possibility that B5 will follow in the footsteps of Dark Angel soon when she finishes posting reactions to that which would mean more regular reactions to the show so let's all cross our fingers......On the lockdown front, living in Birmingham UK, its rather unsettling to hear of the big rise in cases here so I agree to escape into these great reactions is an extra bonus for that reason too. Hope everybody is staying safe in this very trying and scary time!

"The innocent lie because they don't want to be blamed for something they didn't do. And the guilty lie because they don't have any other choice." I'd argue because they made their choice and are scared to face the consequences or have no interest in coming clean. Otherwise a solid, easily quotable observation. Very quotable show. I have three calendars to prove it. And it is nice how they tie it up at the end for the other reasons people lie, him and Delynn, sometimes you have something to protect, and the other two, thinking they have a mission. It's fun watching any reactor slowly realize the commander is already in the chair but @13:06 is something that sets you apart. Very few people stop to read things like that.  @38:27 Your reaction to that matrix moment cracked me up. Never thought of it as more than just still inside the VR machine. Cool theory. Same time I want a crack video with that scene and Neo randomly showing up. Anything else I can think of is spoilery so... great job.

not sure if my comment was visible or not, so to be safe, I'll send it again ;p So when Randall started singing, did you really reach for those glasses from your reactions to Ally McBeal's embarrassing moments, or was it just my imagination? (pretty sure it was my imagination) 😅👓🧐 I have to say, this is probably my least favorite episode from season 1, but your reaction and your review made it so much better, and a lot of what you said made me look at it in a new way. However, this whole career topic is so foreign to me. Which is so weird, because in a year's time, I'll have to find a job and rent an apartment, and just finally be an adult, I guess? But it seems so far away and so unreal. Maybe that's why this episode is always uncomfortable to watch for me, because I'm terrified that I might end up like Jack and not like Randall. Working in a gray office, putting my dreams in a drawer. And doing it all for years, because I have to, not because I want to. First of all, I believe you haven't shared this story before, Marlie, at least I haven't heard it, and thank you so much for sharing it now. Thanks a lot to your mom as well for agreeing to share this. Second of all, I'm incredibly sorry that you had to go through this. Some people are disgusting; it feels like they make it their goal to make life unbearable for others. It says more about them than it does about you. But honestly, your mom seems like a very strong person. I'm glad you and your sister have someone so wonderful in your life 💗 Miss Yvette from The Pool episode returned to share some facts again. Thank god Jack actually listened to her. I loved this little scene where he's in the boys ' room (since Randall and Kevin shared a room) looking at Randall's stuff, thinking about how smart he is, and how important it is that he doesn't miss out on offered opportunities for a better education. I really liked what you said about visual storytelling. I also love the scene between Kate and Rebecca, although it's sad, and throughout the episode, Kate looked at Rebecca and noticed how Jack treated her... Ah, I'm so glad that Kate was more confident and stood up for herself in this episode. Way to go, Kate. And yes, Toby wasn't in this episode, maybe that's what I was missing :D but I'm happy that we've started to see Kate's journey not just regarding her relationship with Toby and weight. We also heard that she and Rebecca aren't on the best of terms right now. And maybe they never were. Hmm. And Kevin... he opened up a little. I love the kitchen scene. In one podcast, it was mentioned that when asked about how old he was when Jack died, it was as if his voice was overdubbed later. So maybe he said the exact age, but then they decided to keep the mystery longer? About Kevin's co-star. Argh. Honestly, I can't stand her. And I just don't understand her at all, you know. And maybe that's what attracts Kevin, but... no. I just don't want to see people having sex at a stranger's memorial anymore. No, thanks. It was just wrong. Speaking of awkward situations. Randall. I'm proud of him. Seriously. I could never have done what he did. He's a star. And yeah, Randall and Beth are amazing! I can't wait for you to see more of their relationship. And when Randall said that he wears a tie to work because he wants to and that he won't apologize for the fact that his work is difficult to explain, and he finds his work fascinating, I just love that scene. Oh, and Jack and Randall with their ties! Ah, really cute. Jack and Randall in this episode just gave me all the emotions I needed. Thank you again, Marlie. Your reactions are always so honest, and I can never thank you enough for that. Oh, by the way, they started shooting season 5 a couple of days ago. And the premiere is scheduled for October 27. So excited to have the Pearsons back. It will be interesting to watch the new season and your reactions to the first season at the same time :)

Lol good eye haha 😂 I did take the glasses and put them closer to me just in case. But then I actually enjoyed his singing so the glasses weren't needed after all. I understand being scared of that. I also have this 'deadline' I rather not think about where I have to decide whether I'm going to continue with reactions or try to get a 'real' and more 'secure' job. Hopefully it will work out for the both of us <3 Thank you so much. You made my mom and me tear up ha I love Yvette so much! I was wondering if that scene with Kevin was dubbed, but I didn't want to ruin the moment and later on forgot to address it in the review. I hope his co-star already reached her peak in unacceptable behavior and actions eek. Thank you again!

Family Business- I really enjoy this episode from season four's Frozen arc. Again... it isn't one of my favorites within this season, but it's still fun and there are so many twists and so much more of Ingrid's backstory explained, along with what has happened to Anna so far. It is certainly a lot to take in. :) My favorite scenes are small in comparison to the major storylines going on throughout this episode. But nonetheless... I am a sucker for the sweet and tender moments. I absolutely love the moments between Emma and Killian... after they find the file on Emma in Ingrid's ice cream truck, then... in the end in the station. I also love the scene between Anna and Kristoff too. And out of the major storylines within this episode... I really love the scenes between Rumple and Belle. First... I love how supportive and gentle Killian is with Emma out in the woods as she's worried about Ingrid's plans for her. And it's hilarious when Killian states that he was once a child too, then how Emma jokes with him about him being one a million years ago, until he quickly tells her it was more like two hundred years ago. Still a long time. And in the end, I love it when Killian states "Don't I know it." when Emma asks why Ingrid would want her simply because she's blonde and hardly the only other one out in the world aside from Elsa. I just love that smug face he makes at her and seeing her smile at him. I love how supportive and protective Killian is of Emma in both scenes. And thirdly... I also absolutely love the lovely and adorable moment between Anna and Kristoff in the backstory. I love how Kristoff teases Anna about her falling in love with Hans in a day, then reminds her of how she had met him the very next day after Anna states that she had been young and naïve to think she had fallen in love with Hans so quickly. So cute!!! :) We don't get a whole lot of scenes between Anna and Kristoff together in the backstories, and I wish that we had gotten a few more, seeing as they are so adorable together and are one of my favorite couples in the show. But Anna with Kristoff are just cute and fun. It's amazing to me just how much they are alike their Disney characters in Frozen. These two I feel are among the characters who are easily the most like their Disney movie counterparts. Both Elizabeth Lail and Scott Michael Foster play them perfectly! Now... I enjoy the main storyline with Belle as she does all she can to try to right the wrong she committed back in the Enchanted Forest just after her mother was killed by an ogre during the time of the Ogre Wars trying to protect Belle. And I love how this storyline eventually comes to connect to the first ever storyline we see with Belle way back in season one's episode... Skin Deep, when Belle convinces her father to call on Rumplestiltskin for help. Now... I do enjoy the overall storyline with Belle and her past with Anna, and I enjoy their storyline as Anna guides Belle to Grandpabbie and the Rock Trolls to seek help in remembering what she couldn't in regards to her mother's death. Although... I do agree with you that it isn't quite as good of a storyline as it could have been had it been written differently. Nevertheless... I do enjoy it anyways. It's sad that we see an unexpected side of Belle when she chooses trying to save the memory rock over helping Anna. But I still enjoy how Belle does everything she can to make it right by finally telling Elsa the truth about knowing her sister and that she fears that Anna might be missing because the Snow Queen kidnapped Anna after her fall from the cliff. As for the present storyline between Belle and Rumple... I really love it as well. I love the scene inside the Snow Queen's ice lair, as Belle becomes enthralled by the enchanted mirror, and sees herself as she taunts Belle about how naïve and foolish she is to believe in Rumple. And while it was cruel and terrifying for Belle, who was terrified upon hearing the dark magic's taunts, sadly we know it all to be true, because Gold is absolutely lying to Belle about her having a fake dagger and that he's still the man she once again believes him to be. Unfortunately, Gold makes up the perfect reasonable doubt to convince Belle he's not lying to her. Poor Belle. And dang Rumple! I'm angry with Rumple for being so deceptive, especially for lying and hurting Belle so much, and it's sad that Belle is so naïve to his deceptions. However, I love this storyline between them very much. Overall... this episode is still pretty good. And while it does seem strange that the Snow Queen's plans for Emma and Elsa involve replacing her sisters... it is an intriguing revelation and I'm so excited for the storylines to come. Oh... and I especially love how Belle reveals to Emma, Killian, and Elsa in the end that Ingrid plans to enact the Spell of Shattered Sight, that will force everyone to turn on one another until they destroy each other, leaving only Emma, Elsa, and Ingrid alive. Yikes!!! This show is getting so exciting!!!! Thank you again, so much! I can't wait for more reactions for Once Upon a Time to come!! The next episode is really good, but the next few after that... are phenomenal!!!!! :) Until next time...

Breaking Glass- Thank you so much for another fun reaction for Once Upon a Time! I enjoy this episode. It's not among my favorites within this Frozen arc, but I really do enjoy this episode a lot. First... my favorite scenes within this episode, as you might imagine, are the two moments between Killian and Emma. They're so cute and they are even more adorable together. I just absolutely love their moments together. And in this episode, we first have Killian carrying in some boxes like Emma asked him to collect for her. And that goodbye kiss he gives Emma on the cheek... adorable. And then in the end, we have another cute moment between them as Killian asks to see some of Emma's things from her past, and she finds the strength in herself to show him things that remind her of the difficult times in her life. Killian is the one person she can open up to, because Killian has always been the one person who brings out the best in Emma. He gives her strength unlike anyone else has ever been able to do. Henry has too, but Killian is the one who has been able to break down her protective walls that have kept Emma so closed off from everyone for so long. And I absolutely love seeing them cuddle, especially in this scene as Killian lovingly wraps his arm around Emma's shoulders while she holds his hand. So beautiful. But, to backtrack a little... I really love the storyline between David and Mary Margaret as well. I like how David finally convinces his wife to go out on a date with him, while they leave baby Neal in Belle's care. I can certainly understand Mary Margaret's struggle to let him go for awhile because of all they've been through with losing their children... first with Emma because of the Evil Queen and her dark curse, and then with Neal because of Zelena. I definitely can understand Mary Margaret's struggle. But I love that David is finally able to convince her to join him. Sadly, Mary Margaret continues to struggle while they're out, and she can't sake the feeling that she needs to go back home. David is thankfully understanding and tells her that he will continue to look for the thief... Will Scarlet, who broke out from the jail. And then... I love how Mary Margaret comes to assume once she finds Will on the beach, that David set Will free as a ruse to help pull his wife out of her funk. And Will's reaction to Mary Margaret and how he interacts with her is hilarious. This beach scene between Mary Margaret and Will was funny and cute. And I love how quick Will was to state that David had set him free once Mary Margaret spoke her thoughts out loud too. And in the end, we also have a lovely scene between David and Mary Margaret again, as she thanks her husband for helping her, and David shows her how much he supports and loves his wife after of course he admits that he hadn't set it up for Will to escape so she could find him again. I just love how Mary Margaret is able to find a part of herself again. So sweet. :) As for the Snow Queen... I love her as a villainess and I love how she speaks in her soft eerie voice. Elizabeth Mitchell is amazing in this role and I really, really love the mystery behind her character. I also really enjoy the scenes between Emma and Regina throughout the main storyline. I'm kind of annoyed by Regina's attitude towards Emma, and how she constantly goes on and on about how no one has ever been there for her, when we've seen otherwise. But I especially love the end scene between them when Emma finally tells Regina that she hasn't been trying to help Regina to ease her own conscience, but to prove to Regina that she wants to be Regina's friend. I also really love the moment when Emma and Regina combine their powers together to fight against and defeat the Snow Queen's giant snowman. This shows just how powerful these women are together, so long as they stand together. Unfortunately, the Snow Queen appears to them seconds after the snowman is destroyed, and attacks both Emma and Regina. And were it not for Elsa appearing to save them, who knows just how far the Snow Queen would have gone. I love how the Snow Queen tested Elsa, in hope of showing Elsa that she is stronger than she believes herself to be by helping her to fight through her fear. And Elsa succeeds. Unfortunately, the Snow Queen hopes to use Elsa's strength for her own gain, and she uses Regina's and Emma's brief show of weakness to steal what she had been after all along throughout this episode, as well as Sidney's betrayal towards Regina. And she steals Regina's compact mirror for which she later uses to enact a new dark spell upon creating a magic mirror of her own. Not good. As for Sidney's appearance and his betrayal... I don't really care much for Sidney's character all throughout this series because he has always just acted as Regina's patsy and he's been weak, in spite of me really liking how he is the Evil Queen's Magic Mirror. However, in this episode, I actually commend his character for showing strength against Regina at last, even though this would be when we are supposed to want him to stand with Regina and Emma too. Sidney turning against Regina is what the Evil Queen would deserve, were Regina still the Evil Queen. Unfortunately, he chose when we all love Regina to do so. However, I like this twist that finally shows him turn against Regina. And lastly... we have a past storyline between young Emma and a young girl named Lilith, or Lily. I enjoy these scenes as well and especially how this storyline ties into Emma's present struggle in trying to earn Regina's forgiveness and friendship once again. And I was definitely just as intrigued by the mystery behind this other girl, and her birthmark in the shape of a star. Overall... I enjoy this episode a lot. And I was shocked to see that the Snow Queen's storyline coincides with Emma's past from when she was still in the foster care system. I didn't expect this at all. What a surprise! Thank you so much again!!! I can't wait for more, so until your next reaction...

I do intend to avoid spoilers. However you were correct in that Will Skarlet (Scarlet?) is from OUAT in Wonderland. He is potentially the only remaining thing from that show after it was cancelled. Zero spoilers for his character’s story arc there if you do watch that. (the creators said that these events take place AFTER OUATIW but honestly it really doesn’t make any sense for that to be the case). Also yeah Frozen in reality came out less than a year from this moment and Disney was hellbent in making sure their number one property wasn’t distorted or too twisted considering they were so brand new. Hence why Elsa and Anna wear the same clothes. Luckily I LOVE the actresses who play Anna Elsa and “The Snow Queen.” Her eerie soft kind spoken voice while sounding completely bananas. It’s amazing. Very unique to our previous villains. She’s a very chill cucumber and it’s very startling. They all do a really good job. I just hate the Regina and Emma fighting in this episode and the ones previous. I understand so much where it’s coming from tho. Regina isn’t wrong but we all knew she is kinda bad at grasping major emotions. 😭 I understood it tho completely. It’s not out of character for her to feel the way she felt especially for Regina who is an extreme private and introverted person who has millions of walls built.

Xena 100% - otherwise I’m probably more inclined to watch shows I haven’t seen before. I considered your OUAT reactions (Xena and Disney are my two big fandoms), but I watched that when it aired (all but the final season), and I was more focused on catching up with your Xena reactions before the end of S4. I’d rather be current with something you’re watching than playing catch-up. Koz told me I have to stick around for Hercules, since I’ve only watched a handful of those, primarily the Xena related ones.

I think seeing the joy in you and you dancing along to Jace's "Dancin' In The Moonlight" is one of my favourite ever moments of you reacting to date :-) In fact your whole joy during this ep made this a classic reaction! And yes, FUN is what this episode is and I've always loved it (except maybe for Amazon Amoria who i find a little irritating). Funny to see how jealous Gabrielle gets at her flirtation with Joxer and their final scene in this ep is nicely played by Renee and Ted. Great to see the return of Draco- the "music video" for his version of Always Something There To Remind Me always makes me chuckle as does his Kick Out The Jams performance. They really do need to lift that love spell though. As everybody has said, its great to do a callback to Xena and Draco's fight from Sins of the Past-and Gabrielle in her go-go outfit!!!! Be still my heart!!! ( I do really wish I'd been at the 10th anniversary Xena convention where Renee and Lucy had come out of the celebration cake and started dancing around the stage in those outfits!) Jace is definitely awesome and the resolution between him and Joxer is sweet. His version of Dancin' In The Moonlight is so catchy and i absolutely love it. As Jen says its very safe to listen to the volume 5 soundtrack so have fun doing that! :-) And I LOVE that funky version of the Xena theme that plays during the final fight.......

This is the one of the best 100th episodes I've ever seen! Truly a celebration and listening to the soundtrack instantly brings a smile to my face. Being able to share my reactions with you guys made it even more memorable! I'm so happy Joxer came to his sense and joined his brother :) :) and yes we need more of that version!

OMG I love this episode! Celebration is the word for it definitely! Okay so I have never felt this way in my life, but for some reason on this watch through with you, I am suddenly extremely attracted to Joxer and I have no idea where that came from... I feel like Gabrille in for Him the Bell Tolls where she's light headed after he kisses her, and then has to slap herself awake! Also, just as a side note, I went to a little concert Lucy Lawless did in California one night after a convention, and half way through the show, Renee surprised the audience by coming on stage to join her in that same costume she was wearing at the end there... it was so epic!!

User #37711238 - 25 Sep 20 05:23
Yay! It’s late, but I had to stay up for this :) You wanted something special...did they deliver or what for the 100th? I think I’ve gotten pretty good at predicting which episodes you’re going to like and which ones you’re going to *really* like, and I was right about this one! I think I’ve been looking forward to this reaction of yours most in Season 5, short of Fallen Angel. One thing you have to love about Xena is how they can get away with doing epic drama in one episode and then switch to a campy musical in the next. And it’s only because they go for it with absolute conviction that they’re able to get away with it. So what’s the general consensus? This episode does not work for some fans, but I think it’s a hell of a lot of fun. For me, this was a great idea to have an episode that minimized the fight scenes for Lucy. I’m glad that for a second musical episode they opted not to attempt something as ambitious and dramatic as The Bitter Suite. This way, you don’t have to compare the two...they can each stand on their own since they’re so different. The Bitter Suite remains one of my favorite episodes of the entire show, and this one comes nowhere close, but it shouldn’t. It doesn’t try to. It just embraces the campy wackiness that it is and has fun. You’re correct that the music is all essentially covers, and they span a wide variety of musical genres, but they also tend to be reinterpretations. I’d say the most original is the song “Getting Ready” which uses all new lyrics (it’s a song from the musical Bye Bye Birdie called “Going Steady”). “Dancing in the Moonlight” is by far my favorite track - Jace and all of his booty short dancing guys! Everyone gets some eye candy in this episode! In looking at the Season 5 soundtrack, it’s mostly the music from this episode (all of the songs along with a Beatles cover that ended up being cut - Lucy and the singer who did some of Gabrielle’s vocals). There are some additional tracks from earlier seasons included, there’s one that was replaced in a later Season 5 episode, and there’s one that I think is in episode 16 based on the title. But honestly, I don’t think those would spoil anything of any significance. The track titles shouldn’t mean anything to you. If someone else feels differently or I missed something, please say so. Another cool note...they just recently released Lyre Lyre on vinyl! Ted is so, so good in this one. It’s a pleasant surprise that the earlier Season 3 mention of Joxer and Jett having a third brother they didn’t want to talk about actually pays off finally here and that it wasn’t a lost plot thread. Jace is simply fabulous! Cyrene really needs to get a clue...that’s the one plot line in this episode I have to roll my eyes at. I may be crazy, but it looks like Gab is doing tequila shots while she’s auditioning the horrible acts, though I guess it could just be water and lemons... And they did let Renee actually sing a little bit in this episode unlike The Bitter Suite...she does the sing/talk bit in the Getting Ready number and she sings with the group in the chorus parts of War, but they do use another singer for the final number where Gabrielle has a solo. Gabrielle “cage dancing” in a white go-go bikini...Lord, help us! I don’t know how Draco’s guys convinced her to put it on, but we’ll just thank them for giving us that iconic look and for Renee getting a chance to shake that fringe! The rap is the weakest number for me, but I do appreciate the call back to Sins of the Past and the original fight on the heads with Draco in the pilot. And I think that blooper at the end is everything you need to know about Lucy Lawless and her sense of humor. Supposedly she borrowed the costume from Renee’s double (who was a tad bit bigger than Renee). What other star, probably 8 months pregnant at that point or close to it, would dance around the set in a bikini to give everyone else on the crew a laugh? And Lucy and Renee both whipped out those white bikinis for a special moment at one of the Xena conventions. There are no words...we simply do not deserve them!

I knew I had to post it asap haha! I'm listening to ''Dancing To The Moonlight'' while writing this reply actually :) it deserved a vinyl for sure :D I'm still not over the cage dance ahaha, and Renee looked AMAZING in that outfit oof.

I just had more fun watching this reaction than i've ever had watching any other reaction! I love this episode soo much, it's one of my regular go to episodes when i feel like just kicking back and having some fun, and watching you react with the same kind of joy i feel when i watch it just made my day. I never had any friends that watched xena and when i watched it, it was the very early days of the internet lol, so i had to experience it by myself. Getting to watch it with you as you experience it for the first time has truly been a joy! Looking forward to watching the rest of the series with you.

I remember when this originally aired; I was in high school and a number of us students were really enthusiastic about the music, in particular “Dancin’ In The Moonlight.” In fact my old mix tape had the original version included by me just because I got especially turned on to it by the Jace version. 😁 Watching your experience with this episode in particular is a great example of why watching reaction videos is so much fun in the first place.

About what you said before starting the episode: Xena's my all-time favourite show (with Doctor Who) so it's such a joy to see you having so much fun reacting to it! There are still so many amazing episodes coming up and I just can't wait for you to discover them. Xena is a wild ride. Now, about the episode... what a great one, I'm glad you enjoyed it so much! Jace's first appearance is just amazing, I was also laughing all the way through Dancing In the Moonlight. Those booty shorts, that choreography... this is art. Joxer being interested in other women and Gabrielle being a bit jealous he's moving on made a lot of sense and I'm glad they included it. I wasn't expecting Xena's mom to show up but it was a nice surprise, I hadn't even thought about her since Xena has announced her pregnancy. Also, I just love the anachronic elements of this episode. The music, the decor, the costumes... Ancient Greece, but make it cooler! It opens up the world this show's set in so much: maybe Xena and Gabrielle have been going out in clubs since season 1 and we just never knew about it. And I thought it was great to use the same format as The Bitter Suite for the 100th episode, considering The Bitter Suite can be considered the highest point of this show so far (who knows what's coming). It's a nice callback without being a copy, since the two episodes have opposite tones. So, they chose the right format to celebrate the show in my opinion, but also the right themes. This episode talks about love, acceptance, forgiveness and is ahead of its time, just like the show overall. I mean, this is a 25 years old show saying children don't necesseraly need a father: a family can be a child, two moms, a grandmother and a funny uncle. This is a 25 years old show straight up calling out "femphobia" (and its misogynistic and homophobic roots). In my opinion, a tv show recurring character being confronted about their views on what's socially acceptable (such as their views on family or masculinity) often feels forced or performative, because it's only adressed once or twice in the entire show. But here, it works perfectly, because the show's been implicitly and sometimes explictly, through its setting and its episodes, bringing up important social themes such as family, faith, misogyny, the prison system and many others . All with an emphasis on the importance of support and love. So yeah, this episode celebrates Xena really well and I'm glad it didn't flop for you!

There's no denying this episode has some very powerful scenes - the scene with Callisto and Eli is beautifully shot and acted, Gabrielle's "Don't you blame me!" moment is powerfully acted by Renee (really bugs me when Xena keeps coming down on her in that scene and in the beginning when she hassles Gabrielle about her accidental moment with the hanky guy- especially after wading in with her chakram first and having made several bad calls herself in the past!) and the final settling of Xena and Callisto's long feud is both powerful and an unexpected twist. However, I will offer more thought on my feelings about Callisto showing up at a later date.....However there are also moments that don't quite work for me and don't come off as well as they should and its a shame to lose earthly Eli so soon though glad his death does eventually seem to have a good purpose. Still bloody sad to lose another major character though- as you say, enough Xena singing by bonfires!! Yes this was the 100th episode shot but the 99th aired and the behind the scenes on the original Season 5 dvd is awesome...;-)

User #37711238 - 25 Sep 20 04:06
I find this episode unsettling as well, but I do enjoy it. It’s hard to watch, and there’s very little relief from all the drama. Speaking of relief, this episode does at least have one of the funniest scenes in the beginning...Xena saying that Gabrielle is the father just kills me! That bit is most definitely a fan favorite, and Gabrielle’s smirk at Ares is just priceless. Plus his comeback...down boy! We continue to see Gabrielle struggling to understand what it means for her to embrace her warrior spirit. She’s not a Warrior in the same way that Xena is, and she’s trying to find that for herself. I think there was a scene cut from the episode where Gabrielle was trying to learn more from Ares...partly what she was referring to when she was with Eli’s ashes, using what he could teach her but to fight for peace. It’s nice to see that Xena and Gabrielle can fight in the moment, but are able to make up and move past it. No more rifts! Callisto being reborn as Xena’s child is so poetic given their history. Xena took away Callisto’s family, then Xena sacrificed her light to save Callisto from Hell, and Callisto is now giving back to Xena that which she stole, a child. There was that moment in Fallen Angel that’s easy to miss if you aren’t looking for it, where Angel Callisto touches Xena’s stomach after they return to life. The God of Eli appears to be behind this immaculate conception, which was delivered via Callisto. So at least Xena and Gabrielle can stop worrying about how the pregnancy may have happened. It is intriguing how they continue to mix elements of various religions together on the show. It happens to myths, history, and even religion in the Xenaverse. And I believe this was actually the 100th episode shot (next one is the 100th as aired), and there is some behind the scenes footage of this one you’ll be able to watch in the extras.

I think it was another good ending for Callisto

User #20384928 - 25 Sep 20 03:13
Eli, originally, was based on the stories of Jesus in India. I won’t tell anyone what to think of those accounts, but that was the inspiration for the character. ... Hey, I got name checked! 😁 ... I think I felt at the time that Callisto’s being reincarnated as Xena’s child was poetic in its way, and certainly jarring. I don’t necessarily love reincarnation stories, but I do like such a strong reconciliation for Xena and Callisto. ... I really can’t chalk up the “Dagger of Helios,” not to be confused with the, uh... Dagger of Helios (from “The Quest”) as being anything other than bad writing, not only for the re-used bit of nomenclature, but also because it seems odd that this heretofore unmentioned god-killing thingy just comes into play, and THEN Ares just throws it away when he was so keen to be able to have the power to kill gods before. But oh well. This 99th episode is still pretty darn good.

User #35443290 - 25 Sep 20 21:26
I just love this episode, it's one of my favourites of season 5. A bit of Eli is always appreciated so I'm sad they decided to kill him, even if it seems there's a valid reason behind it. Xena questions Gabrielle's judgement several times in this episode and, every time, it's unfair towards her. So I'm glad they made up at the end of the episode, without a Gab drag this time! That's progress! I actually really enjoyed Ares in this episode: he feels dangerous but also vulnerable, threatening and killing but also being threatened and almost being killed. It makes sense considering the whole Twilight idea being introduced. Though his attempts at manipulating Gabrielle were both useless and uncomfortable, I sort of agree with him on Eli being selfish for putting Gabrielle in that position. And I'm glad Gabrielle made it clear in this episode that she doesn't see him as a friend or a possible ally. It's weirdly satisfying to see how much he underestimates her, yet still would like her to follow his path. Now, imagine if someone had told you, right after you saw Callisto's first appearance, that Callisto would give Xena a child in season 5. I don't know who thought about that, but honestly? I like it. I like that idea that Callisto and Xena created something together, they didn't just destroy each other. Sure, I was more than satisfied with Callisto's ending in Fallen Angel, but this one works well for me too. If you rewatch Fallen Angel, you'll notice they included it in the episode: right before Callisto meets her family again, she touches Xena very briefly, seemingly for no reason!

I've been waiting for this episode for a while!! I had a feeling it would make you cry as it's really the first emotional episode. I love this episode though. The story, acting, music, monster design and ending is just so good. I also found it funny you said last episode Rose wouldn't take advantage of time as she's just along for the ride, then this episode happens XD But she has now learnt from her mistake. Looking forward to the rest of the series! =D

I love this episode, and people disappearing around Mickey in one of my first memories of this show! This episode does a great job at expanding what we know about Rose, her family and personality, but also at challenging Rose and the Doctor's relationship. I particularly enjoy the moment when the Doctor, despite Rose's mistake, just asks her to apologize, then he apologizes too. The show really tries to portray them as having the same power in their relationship, despite the Doctor clearly having more life experience and options, and I love that. I can't wait for next week's episodes!

Such a sad episode 😢. Yeah I can't really be mad at Rose for saving her dad either. If I was put into a similar position, can't say I wouldn't try to do the same. He was far from perfect but, Peter was selfless and brave when it mattered most. He was a better man than even he thought himself to be.

New Patron here, and I am catching up on all your Doctor Who reactions. I super appreciate your reaction to this episode. This is the episode where a lot of people declare their never-ending hatred for Rose, and I will never understand it. Yes, she did something ignorant here. But it was ignorant, not stupid. Rose is The Doctor’s first companion since coming off the time war and seeing the destruction of his planet and his people. He is hurting and angry. He chose Rose as a companion because she would be courageous, supportive, and help him heal. But he didn’t explain time travel AT ALL to her because he doesn’t want to talk about what happened to him. He fully expected Rose to just “be along for the ride”, but she’s much smarter than that. She’s brave and curious, always asking questions. Because he has hidden so much from her about the dangers of time travel and what has happened to him (which we don’t fully know yet, but we know something happened), she made an ignorant, uninformed choice. But she wasn’t stupid. Now she knows better, and their relationship is stronger for it. Although they have been through a lot together, they bonded in a different way here and both understand each other better. And now, I am on to episodes 9/10, which are my favorite episodes of the season!

When I watched this for the first time I remember thinking it was over for Annie as soon as White found her. I thought he was going to kill her because he's just that evil and wasn't surprised when they found her body. So, it's interesting to me that you thought he would let her live and abduct her. I like your idea better. I think they should've kept her for the remainder of the show. She was sweet and made Joshua happy. Somebody deserves to be happy on this show because Max and Logan sure aren't at this point.

also if you were looking for other shows, i'd like to suggest the gifted as another possibility since you've seen the pilot. the show reminds me a lot of the parts i really liked about season two of dark angel. :) i also think the vampire diaries or from dusk till dawn could be interesting, though both have a lot of triggering elements, so maybe not if that would be an issue.

User #17044442 - 23 Sep 20 02:57
Love this episode. It doesn't even feel like there's a B story, like this could have been two episodes with these plots. Welcome to the Whedon level "oh crap I really like this character" Alec moment. I wish there had been a season 3 for that to be solidly appreciated. The only thing that bugged me was the jealousy thing, that felt extremely forced. I mean think back to all the situations where they had other people, even recently, 0 jealousy. Doesn't make sense that a random hug, after watching her date ambulance guy, would explode like that. I think it's one of those "because reasons" situations and while I've had issues with Logan, especially the blocking, I can't blame him for a trait they obviously pulled out in a rush for the purpose of moving the plot rather than honest story telling. Odd considering how much there was this episode. I kind of get what she means. I hate when people see how bad the fibromyalgia really is. I get 4 reactions, the faking it crowd (like they can magically see my nervous system), the never asking me to do anything again because poor delicate me can't handle it, and the ones that get it's a temporary part of my day and just move on. Of course when people don't see it I not only get more faking accusations but the ones who will overuse my body without a second thought and actually get mad when I can't do something. Okay vent complete. Not really anyone's fault. We're all different and it's easy to blame others for a lack of understanding. I think back to that Buffy Speech to Jonathan in season 3 and it's true. Most people are fighting their Own battles and don't have time to think that much on ours. And that's fair, we don't Really know what they go through either. Still, in a perfect world they could at least explain the situation to her and maybe she'd be cool, like the artist. But that's a big risk to take and does put her in danger. So I get it.

As you mentioned you had finished Dark Angel (though you obviously have some reactions to come of the last episodes) i do hope that Babylon 5 can still be considered as a possible replacement for it. It's coming to a point now where your viewing of the show would really benefit from regular reactions because of major story elements coming more to the fore :-)

i forget the timestamp but it's the very first scene, so: considering how max is so adamant that joshua should stay inside/out of sight for his own safety it's very strange that she'd bail on him when she knows he has to be outside, but i guess the plot needs to happen??? 1:58 - literally why is he doing this, even if there's no one around there's still the potential he'll be overheard or someone could spot what he's doing. isn't eyes only supposed to be covert? also you're out with your girlfriend and working??? did you learn nothing from season one logan??? 2:31 - all things considered she's handling the fact that she came out to see him and he'd rather work, again, pretty well, but i do like that jessica's expression conveys annoyance a second or two before she says this line. 2:50 - lol not yet! they might as well have though. 4:10 - i think this is an interesting conversation and i wonder if they've had it (or versions of it) before and this is just the first time we're seeing it. it's pretty clear alec's in a certain kind of mood that's prompted him bringing it up seriously/aggressively, but max has also expressed her fear about getting logan killed pretty often. i wonder if her knowing about rachel makes her see it in a different light? 9:36 - oh my GOD ANNIE 😭😭😭 11:11 - seriously who was the costume designer this season, turn on your location i just wanna talk 13:18 - baby :( 14:12 - okay these outfits are a lot better. 14:56 - this still breaks my heart. 15:15 - honestly the amount of times he doesn't regard how she'd feel if he died from touching her makes me really angry upon rewatching (in this episode, but also several times beforehand). yeah, it's his life on the line, but she's the one who'd have to live without him and knowing it was because of her, even if it was due to him being careless (and there's a number of times where he doesn't think about their proximity when she clearly is). 19:34 - :( 19:54: - 😭😭😭😭 24:52 - this scene is done so well and i really love it. jessica and jensen play really well off of each other and it shows such growth from where the characters were to where they are. 26:42 - all of this breaks my heart. 28:25 - i like that he calls her out on this, although there were definitely other factors contributing to why she didn't like him at first (such as him selling her out and trying to kill her). 30:00 - alec, you're wanted for murder, maybe don't? 30:50 - i'm sad. 34:41 - fuck, this hurts. i'm sure joshua doesn't know why alec is so adamant about this but that makes it even sadder. 36:15 - 😭😭😭😭😭 37:18 - haha fuuuuuuck. 39:05 - fuck you fuck you fuck you 39:30 - no, seriously, fuck you. she broke up with you for a valid reason that you haven't been respecting, and you see them arguing and him hugging her and automatically jump to 'she's cheating on me'??? fuck you. i also love how max's expression shifts from shocked and hurt that logan would think that she'd do that to him to cold hardness as she decides to lie. wow i've got a lot of feelings about this one.

And in answer to your question regarding Will Scarlett and his reason for breaking into the library to read Alice in Wonderland... Will Scarlet is a cross over character brought into Once Upon a Time from Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. He’s an okay character. He certainly has his funny moments with other characters that I appreciate about him, and he has a history with the characters from Alice in Wonderland. If you would like to know more about his backstory, then you can watch the spinoff should you ever decide to watch it. However, I assure you that it’s not necessary to watch the spinoff in order for you to enjoy his character just as he is.

The Apprentice- Yay! I absolutely love this episode!! Of course you can imagine why I love it too. Killian, thanks to Colin O'Donoghue... is phenomenal in this episode! :) Easily, this is another one of my favorite episodes from season four. And I love that Hook has begun to fit himself into the modern world, from accepting having a cell phone so he can communicate with the others as is shown in the previous episode... Rocky Road, to his change in wardrobe here in this episode, and dang... he looks good!!! :) First... I absolutely love, love, love the moment Emma walks into Granny's to ask Hook out. Easily one of my favorite scenes. This is such an adorable moment between my favorite couple, and I love that she's the one who at last takes the initiative to ask him, as we know that Hook has attempted to ask her a number of times before, only to be unsuccessful. I love how Emma asks him so quickly because she is nervous about doing so, which causes Hook to miss the dart board completely when he attempts to throw a dart at it as she asks him because he's caught so off guard. Adorable! And I love how Killian mocks Emma for being unable to plan a proper date, and how he offers to do so. Then, Emma states, "Well, just so you know... I don't pillage and plunder on the first date.", to which Hook answers her, "That's because you haven't been out with me yet." And that face he makes... Hook is a gorgeous, gorgeous man. And he most definitely beats Flynn Rider from Disney's, Tangled with his smolder. Hook has smolder in spades. :) And then... Hook goes to try to blackmail Gold in hope of getting his hand back. Yes... it's very foolish of him to do so, especially because Hook does know Rumplestiltskin better than most people, given their history together. He should have really known that trying to blackmail the Dark One would end badly for him. But nonetheless, I love this entire scene between them, and all the scenes throughout the episode between them. Their dynamic is phenomenal. I love getting to see more of their dark rivalry come back, as both men continue to struggle against the darkness inside of them. But more importantly... I love and truly understand Hook's reasoning for wanting his hand back, as he wishes to be whole for Emma. To be able to hold Emma with two hands instead of just one hand and a hook. Killian doesn't just feel less of a man for having only one hand, but the reason why Gold is able to manipulate him so easily by making Killian believe his hand is cursed, is because Killian is very insecure about himself as a hero. Deep down, he fears that he isn't good enough for Emma, and to him his hook is a symbol of the villain he used to be. Killian is definitely a romantic like Gold teases him about. And I feel that while he has accepted his hook as a part of himself in the two hundred years he was a pirate and a villain since he's met Emma and has worked so hard to change to become a better man... his hook has become more of a reminder of the man he used to be and a part of him is afraid Emma will always be reminded of the villain he used to be so long as he keeps his hook as well. So Gold's way of manipulating him is perfect, and just cruel. Gold believes he knows Hook better than he knows himself, and all of this is why I love their rivalry so much. As for Hook refusing to believe Gold when Gold tells Hook what will happen if he takes his hand back... that Hook's hand will cause him to fall back into the selfish pirate and villain he used to be... I can also understand why Hook doesn't trust him, because the Dark One lies and tricks just like Gold says as he mocks Hook in the end. And sadly, Gold gets so deep inside Killian's head, that Killian falls for the Crocodile's manipulations. However, Killian also has every right to suspect that Gold might have done something to his hand, or that he is simply lying too. Either way... all magic comes with a price and Hook most certainly pays a big price in this episode. Now he's unfortunately in Gold's debt for the foreseeable future. I just love this new storyline between Hook and Gold. There's so much to come! :) As much as I love Killian in this episode and understand why he seeks his hand back from Gold, for Emma's sake as well as his own, he does sadly go about it the wrong way and I definitely recognize this. Unfortunately, there is no right way to go about it with Gold at this point either. Blackmail is the only way for Hook to get something from Gold because of their history together. They hate each other. Gold definitely wouldn't have helped him if he simply asked. Hook's choice to blackmail Gold isn't right, but it's the only way and Hook knows this better than anyone. Next... I love, love, love the moment when Hook comes to pick Emma up for their date at hers and her parents' loft. I love the brief scene between Emma, Mary Margaret, David, and Elsa just before Hook knocks, as Mary Margaret takes a picture of her daughter when she comes down dressed in a pink dress with her hair pulled back for her date, as if Emma was leaving for her prom. So cute!!! :) And then... Killian arrives at the door and I love how he and Emma both stare at one another in awe at how each other looks, as Hook is dressed in black jeans, a black button up shirt, vest, and a new leather jacket instead of his long leather duster he's always worn, then reveals his new/old hand upon holding out a rose for Emma. I also love how Emma mocks him by calling him "Captain Hand." And then... this brings us to Emma calling Hook, Killian once again like she does back in season three's Part Two finale... There's No Place Like Home, and I absolutely love it! I also love how cute David is as he acts like a father would towards the man coming to take his daughter out on their first date, and how Emma is embarrassed by her parents. Next... I love the scene when Emma and Killian are on their date inside a restaurant called Tony's... which is a nod to Disney's, Lady and the Tramp. If you watch closely at the moment they first walk into the restaurant, you can see another couple eating spaghetti from both ends until their lips come together in a kiss, just like Lady and Tramp do in the Disney movie. I'm happy you recognized this moment too!! It's great, and the first few minutes of their date is adorable. Unfortunately, this is the beginning of Killian's fall, when Will Scarlet attempts to flee from the restaurant until he bumps into the waiter standing above Emma, causing him to spill the wine and wine glasses on top of her. Immediately, Killian grabs Will by the lapels of his jacket collar and demands that Will apologize to Emma. And as worried as Emma becomes upon seeing Killian acting out of character all of a sudden, Killian is swiftly frightened by his actions and pulls his hand back, as he then becomes wary of Gold's warning that his left hand would change him back into the villain he used to be. Not good, but I love this whole scene. I really love the simplicity of Killian constantly looking down at his hand out of fear of what it's doing to him thanks to Gold getting inside his head and messing with him. I absolutely love how Colin O'Donoghue keeps with this fear of his hand turning him all throughout the episode. It's smart and it adds so much to who his character has grown to become. While Killian is now a hero, he doesn't believe it most days because he doesn't believe in himself. His fear of falling back into being Captain Hook is phenomenal, and him fearfully starring down at his hand often adds so much to it. Fabulous! :) And then... we have another of my favorite moments between Killian and Emma, as Killian walks Emma home and they say goodnight. I love the kiss shared between them and how Killian asks Emma out on a second date, to which Emma responds with this beautiful kiss. Sadly, it's slightly interrupted, when Killian begins to stare again at his hand once more in fear upon sensing something's very wrong. And then... I love the moment between Emma and her parents, when they surprise her at being still awake and Mary Margaret is so excited to ask her daughter about her date. And how uncomfortable David is with hearing about it. So adorable. Later, Killian comes upon Will again as the thief is attempting to break into the library, and Killian suddenly becomes enraged with Will when he resists as Killian tries to persuade him from breaking inside, then strikes Will over and over again with his left hand, before threatening him that he better not tell anyone he attacked him, then runs around the corner. And upon this occurrence, Killian fearfully realizes that Gold was right about his warning. I love his facial expressions throughout these scenes. Colin O'Donoghue is brilliant with expression and emotions. This is a big part of why Killian is my overall favorite character throughout the whole series. :) Next... Killian then goes back to Gold to demand he take his hand back so he get rid of it to save himself and protect those he cares about from himself. Unfortunately, Gold continues to manipulate Killian, forcing him to make a deal with him. An open ended deal without Killian knowing what Gold will ask of him in return, that he has no choice but to accept. This leads us to when Gold and Killian meet up at the docks where Killian slept through the night, and then together they make their way to the Apprentice's home in Storybrooke. And Gold forces Killian to hold the Apprentice down while he traps the old man inside the magical hat. Then... in the end we have one final scene between Killian and Gold once again inside Gold's shop. I love this scene, as the two rivals come to a bitter understanding between one another, as we learn that Gold didn't actually curse Hook's hand, but simply preyed on Killian's fear and hatred for him, and Killian's hatred for himself. I feel so bad for Killian, because he falls perfectly into Gold's trap. Gold/Rumplestiltskin is brilliant. He lies and tricks, just like he warns Killian he does. Just like Killian knows about him. The only thing I really don't like about this scene, is when Killian threatens Belle to try to get out of Gold's debt. It's wrong and while I know Killian wouldn't really hurt Belle ever again at this point, I still hate that he even bothers to threaten to hurt her. It's not in him any longer. And it's out of character for him. I really wish this line had been left out. As for Killian not going to Emma about what he's done and what Gold's done to him... It isn't so much that Killian is too proud to admit he needs help. It's because he's afraid. Afraid that Emma won't see him as a hero any longer and afraid that he will lose her. It's not good that he won't tell the truth to her or to anyone else, because the truth would certainly solve a number of his problems, but Killian of all characters struggles deeply with showing his weaknesses. And the truth is, Emma is the same way. Now... as for the backstory with Anna, Rumplestiltskin, and the Apprentice... I really enjoy it a lot and I love that we learn more about the reasons for Rumple/Gold wanting the box containing the Sorcerer's hat. It's brilliant that should he succeed in collecting himself enough power inside the hat, it will allow for Gold to cleave himself from the power of his dagger so that he can no longer be controlled by it, but still keep his power. And this is why Gold doesn't do anything more with the hat once he pulls the Apprentice into the hat. Because Gold has yet to collect enough power needed to perform the magic that will cleave him from the dagger. Fantastic!!! I also love how naive Anna is towards Rumple at first, until she finds her strength to defy him when he tries to convince her to poison the Apprentice. This storyline parallels perfectly with the Storybrooke storyline where Gold manipulates Killian, as we see how Rumple tricks and manipulates Anna too into getting him the Sorcerer's hat, having failed to be able to do so beforehand just as Zoso and other Dark Ones before them had as well. And speaking of Zoso... in case you don't remember him too well, he is the Dark One before Rumplestiltskin became so, just like you suspected. He is the Dark One shown back in season one's episode... Desperate Souls, who manipulates Rumplestiltskin into killing him so Rumple can take the burden of the darkness from him. I love this call back. :) Anna then manages to get a hold of the dagger and forces Rumple to send her home to Arendelle with the box in hand. And she only tells Rumple to send her home with the box in hand, not with the dagger too, which is why the dagger isn't transported with her. I am so proud of Anna for getting one over on Rumplestiltskin. And then... another of my favorite moments is in the end between Anna and Kristoff inside the stable with Sven, when she finally returns home. I love how happy Kristoff is to see Anna return. They're so cute together. And it's adorable how they act off of one another. This is just the first scene between them together we see, and in time you will come to see what makes them another of my favorite couples throughout the show as well. I absolutely love Anna and Kristoff!! :) Overall... I really love this episode and it's easily one of my favorites because of Killian and Emma. I just absolutely love them together and I love, love, love all of the scenes between Killian and Gold as well. Fabulous acting all around. Thank you so much, Marlie!! And I truly had so much fun watching this episode over again with you. I can't wait for more!! Until next time... Sincerely. Heidi

Rocky Road- Fabulous!!! Thank you so much for another fantastic reaction to the first of my absolute favorite episodes from season four's Frozen arc!!! I love Rocky Road very much, and there are so many twists and turns throughout this episode. Wow!!! First... my absolute favorite moment within this episode is the moment between Killian and Emma in the end as Emma confesses to Killian that she's been pulling away from him because she's so afraid to lose him like she's lost Neal, Graham, and even Walsh... who no fan of this show who loves Emma and Killian together, even consider him to be any sort of real love interest for Emma. But I absolutely love the look of surprise and adoration on Killian's face as he looks at Emma the moment she confesses this to him, and then when he states... "Well, love... you don't have to worry about me. If there's one thing I'm good at, it's surviving." And then... he pulls her body close to him and kisses her passionately and lovingly. So beautiful. It's a perfect moment. I absolutely love these two together!!!! :) Now... to begin with, I really don't care all that much for the continued Marian storyline due to her creating yet another love triangle between her and Robin, and Regina. However, her becoming frozen by the Snow Queen leads to a different take as to what I was expecting for a love triangle storyline between Marian, Robin, and Regina to be like. And I really do appreciate the turn of events, especially when Robin comes to Regina for help to save her, then later admits he believes True Love's Kiss has failed Marian because he is truly in love with someone else... with Regina of course. I really like this brief moment between Robin and Regina. And while some fans of this show interpret this to mean that Robin no longer loves Marian anymore, it's not true. Robin loves her very much. However, Robin has moved on. He mourned his wife's loss and grieved for her and spent many years coming to accept his loss. Now... Robin has found love again with Regina and their love is just as real and strong as his love with Marian once was. So yes... Robin still loves Marian and always will, but he's moved on and is now more in love with Regina. I hope this makes sense. Next... I also really enjoy the storyline between Emma and David as they find the thief in the forest, who turns out to be Will Scarlet, a former Merry Man and friend of Robin's until something caused them to part ways. I like that this thief leads Emma and David to the Snow Queen's ice cream shop... Any Given Sundae, where their suspicions that someone else must have ice magic after trusting that Elsa wasn't the one who hurt Marian, was confirmed because the ice cream throughout the shop is all still frozen despite there being no electricity or running compressor to keep it so. I really like that Emma is struggling lately, not only with trusting in her magic, but also with simply being sheriff, especially after Regina snidely retorts that Emma's the one in need of saving as of late. Emma has always struggled with being the Savior and with believing in herself, but up until this point since the events within There's No Place Like Home, she's been better thanks to Hook because he believes in her and has always given her the strength and courage she needs to believe in herself too. Sadly, she's once again begun to doubt in herself, and even more so now thanks to this new villain in Storybrooke, who appears to have already been here for some time before Emma and Hook travelled back to Storybrooke through the time portal and beyond this time, with Elsa trapped inside the urn accidentally in tow. If you remember... Hook pulls the urn out from the cupboard inside Gold's vault with no windows or doors where he and Emma are trapped in just before Emma finds her magic again when he's looking for something to help them escape their prison. And when the portal reopens so they can finally return home, the urn then gets pulled into the portal with them, hence bringing Elsa to Storybrooke. I love this new mystery. Next... I absolutely love the major storyline between Elsa and Kristoff in the past in Arendelle. And I love their friendship and seeing Elsa accept Kristoff as someone suitable to marry her sister. I love how Kristoff has continued to remain with Elsa while Anna's still on her own journey, as he continues to try to help Elsa as she deals with her duties as Queen. I love their friendship that is bloomed throughout this episode, especially when Elsa defends Kristoff the moment the Snow Queen is about to threaten him. Love it! Also... I love that their relationship isn't solely focused on because of each of their relationships with Anna. And in this storyline, we learn that Prince Hans of the Southern Isles, and his twelve brothers are on their way to Arendelle in search of the magical urn we see that Elsa was later trapped in at some point within the past. Also... the actor chosen to plays Hans most definitely looks just like his animated character in Frozen. Like always... the casting is top notch and even Hans is no exception. While I don't care much for Hans' character in Frozen or here in Once Upon a Time given that he is a villain and a bit too high and mighty, I do actually quite like learning more about him and getting to know more about his relationship with his twelve brothers. Also... I love how Kristoff then sneaks off to spy on Hans with Sven in spite of Elsa asking him not to out of worry that he'll get into trouble, which fortunately for Kristoff, he doesn't. But he learns of Hans' plans for the urn and runs back to warn Elsa that Hans plans to use it against her so he can become the new King of Arendelle. So... Elsa and Kristoff make plans to find the urn on their own before Hans and his brothers can. I also love the moment between Kristoff and Sven when he's talking to his closest friend while spying on Hans. This reindeer is so adorable. I love it's expressions and sounds he makes, and how Kristoff talks to him upon understanding what he believes Sven is saying to him. I love the whole scene in the cave, when Kristoff and Elsa reach the urn and how Kristoff warns Elsa to destroy it, only for her to fail to do so because she wants to study it instead. And I love the fight between Elsa, Kristoff, Hans, and three of his brothers, until Hans threatens to kill Kristoff unless Elsa turned over the urn to him. I really love Kristoff's and Hans' banter back and forth, then the moment when Hans unleashes the Snow Queen from the urn and is suddenly turned into an ice sculpture by her. Hans gets exactly what he deserves. And like I said above... I just love how Elsa pleads with the Snow Queen not to hurt Kristoff, saying to her and mostly to Kristoff that he's her friend. Beautiful. Then... later in another scene between Elsa and the Snow Queen, we learn that the Snow Queen is Elsa's and Anna's mother's sister. I didn't see that coming at all and I love this twist outside of the Frozen storyline. I love that the Snow Queen is Elsa's and Anna's aunt. Now, back in Storybrooke... my favorite storyline outside of the beautiful moment between Killian and Emma, is between Hook and Elsa, after Emma kind of demands that Killian look after Elsa and protect her, due to a number of the townsfolk being afraid of Elsa on account of what happened to Marian, to Emma as she nearly froze to death inside the ice wall, and because the ice wall is now surrounding the town and keeping them all trapped inside. And yet... instead of leading Elsa to the sheriff's station like Emma asked of him, Killian decides to lead Elsa to Gold's shop where they can get some help, because Emma's possibly heading into danger and he refuses to just wait by while she is so. Once they reach Gold's shop, Killian threatens Gold as he states that he knows Gold better than most upon seeking revenge against him for over two hundred years, and knows that the dagger Gold had given Belle was a fake, just as we know to be true. I just love Hook's and Gold's entire conversation and the looks they give one another, until at last Gold gives in. I absolutely love, love, love seeing the rivalry between Hook and Gold come back unto this show again. It's absolutely fabulous!!! :) I also love, love, love the conversation between Killian and Elsa as they're walking through the woods and talking about Emma, and how Elsa recognizes Killian's love for her. Then, they finally come to where the ice magic leads them, where they find the Snow Queen. I love how Killian pulls out his new phone that he hardly understands to call Emma, and how he struggles to explain how it works to Elsa because he barely understands it. So cute and so funny. "I don't bloody know... I just press the Emma button and she answers usually." And yet she doesn't, like most times he tries to call her she doesn't and he grumbles about having to carry the phone when she hardly ever answers him. I love how he struggles with having to use his phone, or any modern day technology... him being a two hundred year old pirate. So cute. :) And then... the Snow Queen attacks as she traps Killian by freezing his feet and lower legs to the ground, then uses her magic to not only create a number of falling icicles over Hook, but to also neutralize Elsa's magic so she can't use her own magic to help Killian. Thankfully, Emma and David at last appear just as the Snow Queen is about to kill Hook in order to frame Elsa to show Elsa that everyone will turn on her and see her as a monster... just like the Snow Queen did to Marian in order to try to turn everyone against Elsa. To get everyone to fear her. I believe Marian was just a target of opportunity for the Snow Queen, and nothing more. Thankfully, Emma saves Hook just in time by blasting him and David, who runs forward to try to help Hook first, backwards with her own powers. I also love the moment the Snow Queen suddenly lets slip that she knows Emma, making Emma suspect there's more to this new villainess as well. What another great twist in the story... that's there's a possibility Emma and the Snow Queen knew each other like Elsa knew the Snow Queen in a life she can't remember either, due to the rock trolls supposedly using their power to make Elsa, and possibly Emma, forget about the Snow Queen. Brilliant!!! And lastly... I love the conversation between the Snow Queen and Gold in the very end. The Snow Queen's quiet and eerie voice is very creepy, and I absolutely love it. And I love her as the new villain for this arc of the season. I also love how Rumple seems to know a lot more about this Snow Queen as well, and I love that he is now eagerly awaiting for the Snow Queen to come to him to make a deal. Yikes! I can't say for an absolute certain exactly which season or story arc is my favorite because I love them all, but this arc alone probably has the highest number of episodes that I consider to be my favorites within a season. There are so many good episodes that I absolutely love. And overall... I love, love, love this episode so much! Thank you again for such a wonderful and fun reaction, Marlie!!! I can't wait for your next reaction,!!! It's another one of my absolute favorite episodes this season! Until then, my friend... :)

I like this episode a lot! Like you, I was wary of Xena acting like a child and I'm glad they decided to put her in Daphne's body instead. The Daphne and her father storyline was sweet and the Gabrielle and Aphrodite scenes were just hilarious to me. I'd missed Aphrodite, she's such a funny character. Can't wait to see your reactions to episodes 9 and 10!

Why this episode? Because the star is pregnant and they were running out of ideas? It shows that they needed to cut down on Lucy’s scenes in general, not just action scenes. This isn’t an especially memorable episode for me, but there are definitely some great moments that stand out. The Gabrielle fight scenes are on point in this episode, especially the whip/fire one - an absolute favorite! Aphrodite appears to have developed a bit of a soft spot for Gabrielle, which is a nice counterpoint to Ares always being obsessed with Xena. The young actress playing Daphne does a great job as Xena, and good job again at recognizing her from iZombie. She also plays Tinkerbell in Once Upon a Time. Cunning linguists...yes, I’m glad you caught that one so we didn’t have to call it out more specifically! Who had bets that we would see Gabrielle and Aphrodite dressed as conjoined twins wrestling in oil at some point on the show? Anyone? Certainly not me...I really wonder where some of these ideas come from! I think it’s great when they’re trying to get into the club and their helmet horns hook together, and somehow Renee and Alex keep the scene going. I also like the ending, walking on the beach...it’s like a callback to Ten Little Warlords when Xena gets her real body back after being trapped in Callisto’s. I don’t know if it was done intentionally, but I saw the similarity. And I’m really looking forward to your next batch of episode reactions as well. One note about episode 5x10...make sure you watch through the credits to the very end, after the disclaimer, for a very quick blooper that is shown. You don’t want to miss it! I recommend watching all the way through the credits and then rewinding to see the disclaimer afterward. And sounds like your sister has a great opportunity! Don’t worry about not being able to do more reactions with her for now. Seems like you’re on track to finish up Xena episodes early next year, so you can always keep things going with more reactions with her then, more reactions to extras, etc.

This episode both manages to be great fun and also deliver a very touching story about dealing with grief and healing the pain of loss in a family at the same time. And you have to love seeing a little girl go full Xena on the bad guys especially with the iconic theme playing! Also love the scenes with Gabrielle and Aphrodite especially their undercover visit to the Gemini Club as Bruna and Hilda- that is hilarious! Other great highlights include the ICONIC Gabrielle whip-wielding fight scene, the Amazon Girl Scout cookies scene lol, the over the top metallic crash in the music whenever Tharon sits in his chair (which always makes me laugh as does the way Stephen Finch plays his henchman Sandor). In many ways with its rather camp villain and its great mixing of the touching with the funny it fondly makes me think of Season 1 of the show. Like you, i'm glad they didn't pull the full body switch and enjoyed the friendship between Xena and Daphne and how that was developed. I can also imagine a lot of young girls watching this episode and delighting in seeing someone just like them getting to be Xena :-)

Good luck to your sister, first of all. ... Yep, that was a young Rose McIver. ... The twin thing is weird for several reasons. Weird doesn’t equal bad, of course. ... The significance of this episode for me is this: because the 6th season of Hercules was so short, only 8 episodes, the final episode of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys would have aired right before this. Obviously I won’t spoil anything, but from here ‘til the end of Xena’s sixth and final season, they went it alone. Unless you want to count the shows they tried to replace HtLJ with, but those shoes had no connection to the universe of Xena. Anyway, the “Aphrodite succoring/suckering the poor” joke was one I don’t think I ever got until THIS viewing. But the cunning linguist thing, yeah, I got that. At some point. 😁

Actually i really like the scenes with Gabrielle and Lin Qi in this episode- there's a rather nice chemistry between them and i know the episode originally made it much more clearer there was an attraction- there was even a proper kiss scene filmed and there is an existing still of it. But I feel it works better in the final edit as a rather nice understated thing and shows how much Gabrielle has matured on her journey and how much she is an inspiration to others. I do really like this episode and its one of my favourites of the season along with Purity. I also disagree that Xena and Gabrielle are once again less connected in this episode- especially given the scene where Xena picks up on her fear and I love how protective Gabrielle still is of Xena and her child. So i think that chemistry is there even when they are not on screen together. And Gabrielle is obviously referencing Xena when she talks about the person she calls home. As much as i enjoy Xena wading into battle with a sword and a chakram, i really enjoy seeing her stopping a war through different means here and the scenes of her using the power are pretty cool and spectacular- as ever aided by Joseph LoDuca's music. The final message of using love to stop a war is pretty powerful and its interesting to hear Xena talk about the compassion she felt in this context.

Also i don't think it deserves a comparison to Michael Bay. At least this actually has some substance and characterisation- unlike Michael Bay projects ;-)

Just to clarify, I only named him as a joke regarding the massive amount of explosions in this episode. Micheal Bay can't even touch the brilliance that is Xena :)

Again, I don't care much for this episode. Ming T'ien being back made little sense to me. If people could manifest their spirits due to their "burning hatred" for someone else, their unfinished business, then a lot of Xena's enemies would be able to do it and we would have heard about it in the last 5 seasons. I know plot holes have happened in the show before, but this one is just too far-fetched. Also, Ming T'ien was truly a great villain in The Debt, with his origin story and his lack of self-awareness about his monstrosity. But here, he's just another warlord who doesn't have one good line in the entire episode. And I do wonder about his "hatred for Xena": honestly, after seeing the Debt, I'd say he'd be proud of Xena for killing him. Maybe he hates that she fought him in The Bitter Suite, by not giving in to hatred? I enjoyed seeing Joxer being serious too. The Gabrielle and Lin Qi moments were nice but it would have been better without the "boyfriend of the week" vibe we were getting like we're back to season 1 or something. As it's already been pointed out, a kiss was filmed, but it wasn't included in the final cut. Renee told the producer she felt Gabrielle wouldn't have kissed him, so it was partly thanks to her: thank you Renee! About Xena and Gabrielle not being together much, I agree. Sure, it's pointed out they love each other and Gabrielle says Xena's her home. Yet Gabrielle nearly dies then they don't even hug when they reunite. It's great to say they love each other, it's better to show it. And I don't understand why Xena didn't tell her about the vision, when Gabrielle made it clear the last time around that she wanted to know about that sort of things.

So I assume that’s meant to be the origin of the terra cotta warriors of Tian. Funny, I didn’t remember them looking so panicked. 😬 Anyway, ah Gabby, you can still find a boyfriend in every town you go to if you feel like it. Throwback! 😁👍🏻

And one of my fave responses of yours in this reaction "why don't they just get a sticker?" LOL

Tony, in case you are interested (or anyone else is) I requested the first Hercules TV movie from Liam Duke and he reacted to it on the 16th. It went very well. Just trying to get more Herc/Xena activity going, and I intend to continue with more Herc and eventually Xena (though this may take a while.) A number of people on YouTube were enthusiastic about Herc/Xena reactions when he posted news about the movie. Sorry about this comment, but I didn’t know how else to contact you. 😬

Thanks for the heads up, Koz. Nice to hear that Liam watched the first movie and it went well. Are you requesting Herc on his pilot tier monthly? I'm still trying to spread the word about Herc/Xena and will be happy if we can get the same amount of reactors reacting to them as are reacting to Buffy etc

I have the same goal, of course. As for Liam, he’s not really monthly. He reacts to requests whenever he has time and so forth. So we’ll see when the second movie shows up. 😆

Ok. I will certainly consider joining his Patreon in the future if he gets time to watch more :-) I left a comment on his youtube post expressing my pleasure and mentioning how great it'd be if he watched both shows eventually. Nice to see quite a few others there requesting the same! :-)

I did watch his reaction last night and was pleased to see how much he enjoyed it :-) Hopefully he can get to more Herc re your requests in time.

I’m hopeful about it. 😁

Michael Bay does Xena...I like that take on this episode. I’ll have to remember that one! So this episode is a big part of why I don’t like the previous episode Purity, because it’s really part one of these two Return to Chin episodes, and this second part is one of my least favorite episodes of the whole show (sorry, Tony!). My #1 issue is that the Xena and Gabrielle I know wouldn’t be okay with killing 100,000 people, even if they were part of an opposing army. That’s like dropping a nuclear bomb and trying to argue that it was for the greater good, and not even making a good argument at that. This show usually has such a more nuanced and intelligent understanding of war - look back to The Price and many of the Roman episodes. But here Xena and Gabrielle are both okay with just killing 100,000 foot soldiers? It feels completely wrong. My best guess is that someone had the idea to make a story about the Chinese Terracotta Army (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terracotta_Army), but I really hate how they did it. It would have worked a lot better for me if Khan or the evil siblings had done something that backfired and caused their own army to turn into stone, but having Xena do it through the power of love? That I just can’t wrap my head around, and it’s why I don’t usually give much thought to these two episodes. I also understand what you mean, Marlie, about not being invested. This is an episode I’m very glad wasn’t my first one ever of Xena because I don’t know if there’s anything about it that would have brought me back to watch another. And Gabrielle is captured AGAIN in this episode...it’s like they’re trying to evolve her character, but keep falling back to general sidekick tropes. Lin Qi is one of several scripted kisses in the show that Renee argued against as not being right for Gabrielle’s character. So thankfully we can just put him in the pile of guys who fell for Gabrielle, and it’s nice that he didn’t have to die since he was a good guy. Renee supposedly went to Rob and said it wasn’t working, and he changed it in editing. And I think you can almost see that in how it plays out in the scenes...like there may have been more there originally, but it ends up playing more like Lin Qi starting to fall for Gabrielle, her realizing it (there’s a nice beat where you can see Gab has gotten a clue when he says something like “It depends who you walk through it with”), and ultimately her not wanting to hurt him, giving him a sweet yet chaste goodbye kiss on the cheek. The one thing I do very much appreciate is Lin Qi reminding Gabrielle that she’s a bard. Yes, she has had a LOT going on since returning from the dead, and she’s in overprotective mode as much as she can be around Xena, but it was nice for someone to remind her. I believe the back-to-back twins are an homage to the film The Bride With White Hair, which itself was one of the inspirations for Xena’s character. But all that aside, I think what bothers me most is how these two episodes seem to dilute the power of The Debt episodes, for me at least. There’s a reason why most sequels aren’t as good as the original. The significance of Lao Ma’s powers as presented in The Debt are continually minimized as more people are able to tap into her powers and invent new ways to channel them. I also think that future visions of death shouldn’t be allowed on this show anymore. It was used to such great effect in Season 4 that doing it again just cheapens it. And with that Season 4 vision, it was caused by a shamaness. Now it’s from Xena holding a bag of powder? I guess it’s yet another outlet of Lao Ma’s powers. Sigh.

Actually i never took it in this episode that Xena took killing all those soldiers lightly- you can see it clearly on her face after the battle is ended and i think her talk of compassion actually extends to the enemy she had to dispatch too- at least that's the way I interpreted it. She certainly isn't celebrating having to destroy those men. I guess i'm the only here who actually likes these episodes and I will continue to enjoy and defend them. I certainly think both need more appreciation by the fanbase- i certainly wouldn't put them on the worst list- there's a considerable amount of season 4 that ends on that list for me.
