Trivia

The costumes in this episode are all based on tarot cards. Xena was the high priestess, then the chariot, and also death for a short time; Gabrielle was the star, then the empress, and then the world; Callisto was the fool and then justice; Joxer was the hanged man and then the hermit; Ares was the emperor; Lila was the hierophant; and Solon was the magician.

Goofs

Xena must have been a truly remarkable person for not only was she present at the Trojan war, as we have seen in a past episode, but she also had the honor of knowing Julius Caesar. Considering that the Trojan war is historically placed at about 1194 BC-1184 BC and the aforementioned historical figure from about 100 BC - 30 BC for Xena to have survived over 1000 years is utterly amazing! Talk about your well kept woman! See more »

How many Tarot cards could you spot?
28 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

These are the Tarot cards I observed, in the order of appearance:

The Fool--Callisto

The High Priestess--Xena

The Wheel of Fortune

The Hanged Man--Joxxer

The Empress--Gabrielle

The Emperor--Ares

The Chariot--Xena

The Hermit--Joxxer

Death--Xena

Justice--Callisto

The Tower--struck by lightning

Judgment--ghosts rising from tombs with a trumpet playing

After that point, they continued without any more Tarot that I could discern.

They followed the designs of the Rider-Waite deck very closely, such as the Fool's green robe and dog, the High Priestess's two pillars, the Wheel of Fortune with its Hebrew letters and sphinx, the Chariot drawn by two sphinxes. Callisto says "Aleph am I," which is the Hebrew letter esoterically associated with the Fool card, and she quotes from The Book of Tokens, which is Rosicrucian meditations on the Rider-Waite Tarot.
