This episode contains examples of:

  • Cruel Mercy: When Kirilus gets defeated by Xena, Ares appears to tell him what a chump and then just leaves him there. Evidently, he feels that leaving the guy alive to his humiliation is more satisfying than killing him outright.
  • Disc One Final Boss: The warlord Kirilus. He was just a pawn in Ares's scheme to win Xena back.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Atrius appears and tells Xena that he is her father. Subverted Trope. It's actually Ares in disguise.
