Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
This enormously popular fantasy series really hit its stride in the third season (1997-98) with a string of neatly written, emotion-packed episodes in which the bond between Xena (Lucy Lawless) and her companion, Gabrielle (Renée O'Connor), was stretched almost to the breaking point. "The Furies" gets the third year off to a rousing start, with Xena's recurring adversary, the god Ares (Kevin Smith), arranging for her to be driven insane. Later, episodes such as "King of Assassins," a showcase for the secondary character Joxer (Ted Raimi), retained the lighthearted aspect that initially endeared Xena to fans. So, too, does "Been There, Done That" -- the show's well-received version of Groundhog Day. Still, it is the seven-installment arc that has Gabrielle on an emotional roller coaster that largely distinguishes this season from earlier ones. Over the course of this extended story line, Gabrielle gives birth to a baby girl, the "Daughter of Darkness," whom Xena sees as a child of disaster. The relationship between the two women is edgy during this period, but eventually it strengthens as a result of the tests they face together. Season 3 also contains one of the show's most popular episodes, "The Bitter Suite," in which star Lawless shows off her sensational singing voice. Although the action content is not neglected, the ’97-'98 shows are more noteworthy for their development of the leading characters, and many Xena devotees believe this group represents the high point of the series.
