Recap: Xena S 03 E 11 Maternal Instincts

Imbued with the evil power of her father Dahak, Gabrielle's daughter Hope joins forces with Callisto to kill Xena's son Solan.

Tropes

  • 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.
