opens with Callisto in Hell. Not a very nice place let me tell
ya. Fake Gabby and Xena's taunt her and the wig fake Gabby has
on looks like the child Hope hairdo - pretty freaky looking.
Anyway, she talks with an ugly dude and realizes she could do
the devils bidding since he has an interest in Xena. Seems the
devil wants bad Xena and he can do this if Xena loses her
'way'. The devil also wants Caesar to do his bidding and
placed in ultimate power of the world.
tells goofy guy she wants to talk to the 'big guy' and help
get Xena into Hell. But there's only one rule - Callisto can't
harm Xena physically. . .but she can play all the mind tricks
in the world.
is having an erotic Xena dream when suddenly she stabs him. He
wakes up to find Callisto sitting next to him. She's there to
see that he becomes Emperor and keep Xena out of his way.
Gabby and the Amazonette that I'll continue to call Betty (see
subtext report on End Game) are on their way to see Eli (whose
in Greece now) when they get attacked. Xena finds out Caesar
put a 6 million dinar price on her head. She decides to go to
Rome and kill Caesar. She asks Gabby to stay put and Gabby
agrees - the way of the warrior is Xena's way and she will not
Xena is in Rome, Gabby and Betty catch up to Eli who has
healed a man who couldn't walk. They chat and Eli does his
preaching, however Brutus shows up and takes Gabby as a bargaining
chip for Caesar against Xena. He promises Gabby will be
unharmed and Gabby doesn't believe it but the group goes
in Rome Xena is sneaks in and nearly chakrams Caesar but
Callisto catches it and Xena gets the "Oh ****!"
look on her face and takes off. She runs down an ally to find
Callisto twirling the chakram on her finger. Calli tells Xena
that she can't win. Brutus has captured Gabby. Xena said she
doesn't believe it and Callisto tells her that Brutus is going
to be sent to Gaul and she's got info . . .and the
conversation drops from there.
Gabby and the gang come into the Roman compound they see all
kinds of crosses being made. Brutus asks who they are for and
is told some pirates are being brought in. Gabby tells him he
doesn't really believe those crosses are for pirates? And he
still says Caesar will keep his word and not harm anyone. But
you can see, ole Brutus ain't so sure.
leaves and Xena walks up and asked where Gabby is so shes
could save her. Gabby deserves that much since she saved
Brutus. Xena says she has inside info on a trip to Gaul Caesar
has planned for Brutus - assassins are waiting for him there.
She tells Brutus to beware of the 'Ides of March' because
Caesar will proclaim himself Emperor. Brutus still says he
doesn't believe her but being a man of honor her tells Xena
that she can find Gabby at a compound at the bottom of a
heads back to Rome where he learns that Caesar is going to
kill Gabby and tells Brutus that he wants him to go to Gaul
next. Brutus looks nervous and asks why. He won't tell Brutus.
In addition he tells Brutus that he's got an announcement to
make before the senator soon. Brutus now knows that Caesar has
to be stopped.
is staking out the Roman camp when Callisto comes back
offering an eternity of peace if she'd follow Gabby's way of
life. Xena sees that Callisto is trying to hard to 'change'
her warrior way and declines. She kicks butt all the way into
the jail and saves the gang.
rushes out and Callisto watches the fight below in the square.
Xena is succeeding and she's going to get away. Callisto can't
have that so she hurls Xena's chakram into Xena's back,
cracking the chakram in two pieces. Gabby watches Xena's legs
buckle to the ground and screams for her to get up.
big guy charges with a sword, Gabby picks up a spear and
impales the guy. More guys charge and Gabby picks up Xena's
sword and starts slicing and dicing. She keeps screaming for
Xena to get up but Xena says she can't, something happened to
her spine and she can't move.
keeps taking the guys out - she head-butts 'em and drives a
knife into one. She slices another guys throat. All the while
Xena is crying telling Gabrielle to stop. After the 8th guy -
yes Gabby killed 8 people - she gets surrounded. She drops the
knife and realizes it's over. Eli, Betty and the other
followers are fleeing safely into the woods.
Xena and Gabby are in a holding cell. Xena can't move and
she's resting in Gabrielle's lap. She tells Gabrielle she's
sorry for all the times she should have treated her better and
she's sorry Gabby gave up her 'way' for her. Gabrielle said
she chose the way of friendship and that Xena saw her for who
she was and she'd never regret that. Xena said she wished she
had read Gabby's scrolls and Gabrielle tells Xena she would
have liked them.
guards come and begin to take them out to the cross. At the
same time Ceasar is about to give his speech. Brutus has
talked members of the senate into killing Caesar since he's
far too powerful. Callisto watches X and G getting dragged and
stands catching snowflakes on her tongue<LOL> Gotta love
daggers in the assembly start to come out from behind the
toga's as Caesar is talking. They tie Gab and Xena up and
ready them. AS the first nail goes in, Caesar is struck in
Rome. Then again and again. The direction is great because the
look of pain for Gab and Xena is the same for Caesar who is
dying at the same time. Finally Caesar lay dead. G and X are
hoisted up on the cross.
dies first. Her spirit going over to Gabrielle and cradling
her face. Next Gabrielles spirit comes out and they hold
hands. A bright light comes out and you can see their two
little flying spirits get sucked into the air. . .fade to
there you have it. . .was it everything you dreamed of<LOL>.
I think this is probably one of my favorites from Season Four,
if not the series, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
course this isn't the end - ROC's directing debut is next
week so stay tuned. It looks like a really funny one so it
should be entertaining.
