Goofs

When Draco is talking to Xena in the tent, he says "...I guarantee it". This is historically inaccurate since the term "guarantee" dates back to as early as the 15th century, long after the supposed time period in which the series takes place. Actually, every single English word spoken in the show should be a goof, every character being theoretically speaking ancient Greek, Latin or another ancient language. See more »

Quotes

Xena: [as Gabrielle pressures Xena to take her with her] I travel alone.
Gabrielle: So, where are you headed now?
Xena: Amphipolis.
Gabrielle: That's in Thrace, isn't it? I love to study maps and place names! So, what route do you usually take?
Xena: Don't even *think* about it.
Gabrielle: What?
Xena: Following me.
[pause]
Xena: You don't want to make me mad now, do ya?
[Gabrielle smiles and shakes her head]

The Return of the Princess.
24 April 2007 | by (Mansfield, Pennsylvania.) – See all my reviews

After a memorable three episode arch on Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Lucy Lawless returns in her own series as the tragic Xena: Warrior Princess. The character's home and mother are introduced as well as motivation for her walk on the wild side that would be fleshed out in later seasons. Xena also meets life partner Gabrielle who acts as her conscience throughout the series. The show hits the ground running and this is a fine example of what would be coming, with Xena fighting those who preyed on the weak as well as the sins of her past. The only flaw is that it could have used a more in depth view at Xena's past. Even with Jay Laga'aia as Draco, former ally/infatuated suitor, the scenes between her mother and her are more interesting.

P.S. Gabrielle's betrothed, Perdicas, would later return in a different form.
