The Twlight is here
17 September 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The confrontation between Xena and the gods of Olympus that has been building all season long, finally comes to a head in "Motherhood".

The guest list is jam packed with familiar faces both from "Xena: Warrior Princess" and "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" as the gods bring all of Olympus down on Xena in an effort to kill Eve, formally Livia of Rome.

Wilkinson, Smith, Jefferson, Raimi, Lee, Tydings, Tobeck, Desmond; the fabulous guest stars of "Xena" are here in force for the season five finale – and very few series are capable of pulling off a season finale like "Xena"! Rick Jacobson is back (having just directed "Livia") to direct this mammoth episode – something he did often in the series – and, just like with "Livia", he keeps this fast paced episode moving perfectly.

Any episode that is a story by series creator Rob Tapert and then written by the ever amazing R.J. Stewart is guaranteed to be a phenomenal episode and "Motherhood" is no exception.

From the very opening scene, there is no pause, as "Motherhood" moves flawlessly between some of the best fight scenes of the season (if not the series), and moments that fans still talk about, six years after the series has ended. "Motherhood" contains what is among the most talked about and controversial moments in the series between fans.
