A Family Affair

Director: Doug Lefler
Writer: Chris Manheim

Lucy Lawless
Renee O'Connor

Guest Stars:
Ted Raimi (Joxer)
Willa O'Neill (Lila)
Geoff Snell (Herotodus)
Lisa Crittenden (Hecuba)

story: Liz Friedman and Chris Manheim

After discovering Gabrielle was alive at the end of the last episode, Xena heads for Poteidaia and meets up with Joxer. Their search leads them to Gabrielle! However, the family reunions include a certain demon daughter and a terrible beast who is her little lad, the Destroyer! Was Xena`s vision really Gabrielle or was it only Hope who survived the fall into the lava pit?

Lisa Crittenden is better known as Maxi in Prisoner Cell Block H, but Hecuba was originally played by Linda Jones. Geoff Snell also played Herodotus in Sins of the Past. Listen carefully when Joxer is bound and gagged by Hope. You can hear Ted say "Oh sh*t!" Renee O'Connor - of course - plays the role of Hope once again. The actual way Gabrielle survived the lave pit was never properly explained until Season 6's Soul Possession - the last stand alone episode ever.

No spike-skinned, beast-like, incredibly hungry offspring who can`t stand the sun were harmed in the production of this motion picture.
