This week on XENA: WARRIOR PODCAST, it’s journey’s end. Vera, Katie, and Livy climb the mountain that is 6x22 “A Friend in Need Part II,” the final episode of Xena: Warrior Princess. We discuss the challenge of endings, the visual callbacks and thematic importance of “Sins of the Past” and “The Gauntlet,” the use of sound design and editing in Xena’s last stand, Gabrielle’s hero’s journey and her culture clash with Morimoto, and the episode’s final presentation of personal desire vs. the greater good. Plus: Vera’s favorite arrow, Birds! Birds! Birds!, there’s always time for a threesome, Xena’s secretly straight hair, the sitcom beat, face squids, and move over TV CPR: we’re all about TV Water Transfers now! Don’t forget, we aren’t finished discussing AFIN II - there’s more to come in THE GREAT UNPINNING!
