Did You Know?


Lyceus and Xena are captured and in giant bird cages; Lyceus is trying to cut the cage bars and Xena says,"Try cutting against the grain". Whether by chance or erudition, the writers got this right. Ancient Greek iron was true wrought iron, composed of layers of low carbon iron and silicate slag. This iron had been hammered out, folded, hammered out,folded... The end result had a grain like wood has and blacksmiths had to work with the grain just as carpenters do with wood. See more »


Xena: Get up. You've got a second chance. Swear you won't waste it by killing.
Boy: I swear it!
Xena: Get outta here!

Remember Nothing
23 December 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

The episode starts off with some exotic martial arts like the one practised in Brazil. Xena and Gabrielle are on their way to a temple to honour Xena's late brother, Lyceus. They are attacked by a masked man, Xena kills him but the attacker is a youth and Xena feels guilty over his death.

The Three Fates appear and thank her for defending the temple. They offer Xena an opportunity to erase her past, bring the dead youth back to life. However she must never shed blood in anger again.

Xena returns to a life before she became a warrior. Her young brother Lyceus is alive and despite the taunting of the Fates, she strives to live a peaceful life.

However in this society Gabrielle is a captured slave living a hard bitter life. All the good the Xena has done is undone, the warlords she previously had bested are still around and just as villainous.

This episode is a reworking of 'It's A Wonderful Life.' Xena is a fairly muscular village girl in a dress and trying to resist all temptations to take up arms. However Xena realises despite her bloodsoaked past, she has on balance done more good.
