This week on XENA: WARRIOR PODCAST, become your breath, and on the count of ten, think yourself back to Ancient Greece! Vera, Katie, and Livy clarify their remembrances of 4x22 “Déjà Vu All Over Again,” the inexplicable Season 4 finale and Renée O’Connor’s directorial debut. We discuss why this clip show/bottle episode maybe wasn’t the best assignment for a first-time director, its nostalgic use of Season 1 clips, the many layers of texts and meta, how Harry is the worst even though he’s Xena, how to make the kisses on the show less frustrating, and the queer af identity scrambling that messes with normative views of gender and sexuality. Plus: Ares’ hair is out of control, set design by Spencer Gifts, we finally ship Gabs/Joxer, even the birds ship Xena/Gabs, and holy sh!t we finished Season 4 you guys!

The power, the passion, the podcast!
