real subtext or much emotion here between the girls. Gabby
says she loves Eve as her
own and wants the baby to have her rite of caste. This offer
of Gabby's soul to Eve
gets her the usually ho-hum response from Xena. At this point
I'd tell Gabby to move
along and get a life because she can do much better than Xena.
I'd hire Salmoneus
as a lawyer and sue for custody of Eve because Xena will only
end up screwing
that kid up in the end.
they get to the village they learn Yakut and Amerece have died
- this in turn lets
us, the viewers, know that TPTB can't keep anyone around for
long that might be useful
to the series (Well Yakut was a sweetie, Army just annoying).
Xena and Gabby didn't
seem to grief stricken by their deaths either - yet another
writing, directing problem
if you ask me. Or the simple fact the stars are sick of the
journeys to the past to see Yakut's tribe which are just
cheesy clips of that ill fated
show "Amazon High" - Gods above I can see why that
sucker got turned down for
a series. Working it into this episode makes so little sense.
But on the upside (if you can call it that), we got to see
Danielle Cormick and Karl Urben (or whatever his name
is) again. Of course it would be better if it were as Ephiny
decides to give Eve her rite of caste but refuses to do the
gooy horses blood thing.
Xena busts into the 'private ceremony' - Xena can save their
ass over and over, but
she can't come to the ceremony because she's not an amazon.
Even though it's HER
KID??!! TPTB haven't solved that continuality problem
Xena uses the cheesy "AH" clips to show the amazons
should let the enemy leave
their lands so Yakut and all good amazons can go to heaven -
or land of the dead
or wherever good amazons go. In the end Xena show's them the
give up on horses blood, 'baptize' Eve with water instead and
everybody does the funky
chicken in their skimpy clothes. How about that for a report
week is the 'funny' ep but it doesn't look funny at all. Xena
tells Gabby she doesn't
have to worry about killing Joxer because she'll do it. She
looks pretty damn serious
but I gotta funny feeling that, just like Mary Richards, he's
gonna make it after all
.(Did I just show my age again with that bad joke?<VBG>
