Another "rift" episode, and probably the most dramatic, Maternal Instincts continues the story about Gabrielle`s child started in The Deliverer and Gabrielle`s Hope. Callisto returns once again, once more causes havoc. This episode also features the Amazons and Gabrielle`s child, Hope grown up a bit - but has she grown into the monster Xena feared, or is she an innocent? Quite dramatically upsetting events occur in this daring episode featuring a bevy of mothers and their offspring. Brilliantly written and acted - as always.

Jeff Boyd took over from Paul Gittins as the centaur Kaleipus, however, Gittins was back in the role in season 4.

Disclaimer : -
Xena and Gabrielle`s relationship was harmed during the production of this motion picture
