This week on XENA: WARRIOR PODCAST, go on and kiss the girl! Vera, Katie, and Livy are living a fairy tale with 6x09 “Return of the Valkyrie,” the conclusion to the show’s ambitious Rheingold trilogy. We discuss the complicated question of what aspects of Xena’s essence and values were removed by the Ring, Wealthea’s intriguing similarities to Gabrielle, the return of fire and water as thematic symbols, and that swooning Sleeping Beauty kiss, which rings in a new era of the show that embraces and celebrates Xena and Gabrielle’s romantic relationship. Plus: Gabrielle goes on The Bachelorette; who the heck is Wiggles; Waltraute gets smoked; XENA’S DR. ZHIVAGO FURS STOP TRAFFIC, TIME, AND OUR HEARTS, Brunnhilda’s fire arms braided Gabrielle’s hair; and OMG Xena and Gabrielle just got married!

The power, the passion, the podcast!
