Trivia:
The "new" Xena kills less often than then "old" Xena, but still quite often. In this episode she kills one of King Gregor's soldiers with her chakram, kills another with her sword and pushes the man so that a third soldier is impaled on his sword. In the final fight, Xena kills three soldiers and Nemos with her sword. The "new" Xena's body-count after this episode is 14.See more »
