Cast of characters:  Xena, Gabrielle, Amorese, Callisto, Eli, Brutus and Caesar.  I was really psyched for this episode and was extremely disappointed.   However, we found out several things in this episode...We now know for sure that Caesar is dead; We know that Eli has found that in order to heal you must have perfect love through stillness and emptiness. (Isn't that what Gabrielle was learning from Aiden way back in Paradise Found?); We know that Callisto is now in Hell and she agrees to be a disciple (He obviously must be the ultimate evil - did you see what he did to Callisto's hair?); We know that Gabrielle must have been taking sword fighting lessons between her meditations. (Amazingly she never used a sword effectively before, and now she can kill an entire squad of Roman soldiers?); And we also know that Callisto's IQ must have dropped severely since she told Xena everything about Lucifer's plan for Caesar, and gave Xena information that allowed her to convince Brutus of the truth about Caesar's megalomania. (So now Callisto has Lucifer angry with her too I'm sure).  And to top it all off, Gabrielle after a few months of incessant preaching peace and throwing away her prized Amazon staff, forsakes her "Way of Peace" for the "Way of Friendship" (does Eli know this "Way"?), and it looks like both Xena and Gabrielle both make it into Heaven.  End of story?...I doubt it very much since there is going to be a next season.  So this upcoming show "Deja Vu All Over Again" which concludes the fourth season is about their spirits in the present day? (Sounds like a Hercules episode doesn't it?).  Wow...   Well, definitely too much from me, I hope you enjoy this episode.  As always, please let me know what ya think. -
