Hercules fights Zeus to protect Xena's baby who is going to bring upon the fall of the gods
17 October 2006 | by (Saint Lucia) – See all my reviews

great episode of Xena, love the fact Hercules was on it, was a sad episode because Herc killed Zeus. it was an excellent episode only disappointment was Herc did not ask who was the father it would have been interesting to see his reaction. ares was wonderfully , so was hades. Hera was surprising didn't think she would have help Hercules. the actors were great , you could see the emotions,wonderful job Lucy lawless, Renee o 'connor, Kevin Sorbo, Kevin smith, meg foster, Charles Keatings and all the other actors on this episode. i must say on this episode you could see the great friendship between Xena and Hercules that was developed. you could see the regret Hercules had when he had no choice but to fight Zeus. the sadness he had when he found out that Zeus was after Xena's baby. Herc really loves children and despite their differences Zeus and Herc love each other. this an episode that must be seen.
