35: 3x11 "Maternal Instincts"

This week on XENA: WARRIOR PODCAST, Vera, Katie, and Livy take on a real mother of an episode, 3x11 “Maternal Instincts.” The conclusion to the trilogy begun with “The Deliverer” and “Gabrielle’s Hope,” “Maternal Instincts” picks up the dangling threads of the Rift arc and weaves them into the most devastating tapestry ever. We discuss the catharsis of a good tragedy, the Rift’s deconstruction of Xena and Gabrielle’s characters, the futility of Callisto’s vengeance quest, whether Hope was born bad or just born with bad hair, and finally we debate the ultimate question: what time of day is it during Gabrielle’s suicide attempt? #YIKES
