In "Remember Nothing," Xena is finally driven to take back her wish upon seeing Gabrielle kill someone. Congratulations, you've saved your partner's innocence...for a whole one year.year.
** "Dreamworker" was the first episode to address blood innocence and the importance of Gabrielle maintaining it. The final scene sees Xena compare a first kill to throwing a stone in the lake, saying the stone will always remain under there and that the lake is forever changed. Cut to "The Deliverer": Gabrielle kills for the first time and laments that NothingIsTheSameAnymore.
** During "The Execution," Gabrielle learns that Meleager lied to her about quitting drinking. She takes that hard, later telling Xena that friends don't lie to each other. That sure takes on some new meaning when you watch the endings of both "Gabrielle's Hope" and "The Debt" two-parter.


Added DiffLines:

* HeartwarmingInHindsight: "The Key to the Kingdom" ends with Meg certain she'll never have a family of her own and Xena trying to convince her it is possible. After Season 5's TimeSkip, viewers see that Meg did have a family with Joxer.

*MyRealDaddy:Although John Schulian created the character in Hercules for the episode The Warrior Princess his Xena was more of a FemmeFatale and then a DistaffCounterpart to Hercules. It was the head writer for Xena, RJ Stewart who refined the character as we know her.

* BestKnownForTheFanService: ''The Bitter Suite'' is best remembered for Xena getting a ShamefulStrip from Ares and to a lesser extent Gabrielle running around naked.

* HilariousInHindsight: In "Chariots of War," Cycnus (Jeffrey Thomas) tells Xena they met at the Battle of Corinth. It wasn't that much later when Thomas was cast on ''[[HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys Hercules]]'' as Jason, the king of Corinth.

* HoYay: Xena and Gabrielle.

** The homoerotic relationship between
Xena and Gabrielle.Gabrielle constantly walked the line between subtext and text.
*** It's text in the modern-day reincarnation episodes, they get married and everything.
** Xena and Callisto. Although, that was more FoeYay.
** Gabrielle was canonically lusted after by a Valkyrie in a later season, and it was implied that Najara was in love with Gabrielle as well.
---> '''Xena''': (about Najara) "She's a tough girl, but she's got a weakness. It's the same one I've got."
** In "The Play's the Thing", Gabrielle's play convinces two girls to become "thespians".
** There's also Lao Ma, who attempted to teach a younger, angrier, Xena the value of peace, and of dancing with girls.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: ''''Xena: Warrior Princess: The Talisman of Fate'', a 3D FightingGame for the NintendoSixtyFour, is the very definition of "button masher". Characters' standard attacks are performed by rapidly pressing the C buttons repeatedly, and those were the only {{Combo}}s the game offered due to high ending lag on all attacks. Special moves and throws had such a high amount of startup lag, often for a full second (!), that the only way to not get punished for them is to camp. To make matters worse, there was a fairly large amount of HitboxDissonance to go with it. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And the game's villain is an]] OriginalCharacter, a BigRedDevil [[GenericDoomsdayVillain with the fittingly generic name of "Despair"]]. That said, the music and the graphics were well-done.
