The studio production team (played by co-stars) is panicking when title star Kevin Sorbo fails to turn up for New Zealand Hercules shoots, presumed missing after an L.A. earthquake, where a mystery man has been saving caved in people.

The title refers to a 1897 newspaper article in New York's Sun about an 8 year old girl named Virginia O'Hanlon asking if there really was a Santa Claus. The reply was: Yes, VIRGINIA, there is a Santa Claus. See more »


At the end of this episode, Ares appears with Strife by his side. However in the episode just before this, Armageddon Now (#4.13), Strife was killed with a Hinds Blood Dagger, therefore he should not exist in the 'present day'. See more »
