Imbued with the evil power of her father Dahak, Gabrielle's daughter Hope joins forces with Callisto to kill Xena's son Solan.
- Annoying Arrows: Callisto. She provides the image for the main page.
- Bigger Bad: Dahak doesn't appear in this episode, but everything done is in preparation for his return.
- Creepy Child: Hope, naturally.
- Killed Off for Real: Kaleipus and Solan
- Rule of Symbolism: It seems hugely disrespectful that Solan would be cremated beside the demon-child that murdered him, but it does provide a compelling image of two women standing before the pyres of their dead children.
