After spending most of the episode apart, Xena and Gabrielle reunite. Whee teamwork! ….in the form of chariot chase trust exercises:
That looks like a safe thing for Gabrielle-not-used-to-riding-horses-at-all-whatsoever to be doing. Heck, I’m impressed she didn’t fall off when Xena first made her horse run.
What’s Xena’s horse’s name, anyway? Has it come up? (Don’t spoil it, I’m sure it’ll come up.)
I like our ladies’ dynamic of not really relating to each other and making weird faces at each other’s backs. There is room for improvement.
After finding out Little Bad is Gabrielle’s flame from the previous evening, Xena says, “Remind me sometime to talk to you about your taste in men.”
And if on-coming chariots hadn’t been in the way, she could have added, “Don’t bother, I’m right here.” (Well, maybe not at this stage. I haven’t seen any tantalizing subtext yet.)
Anyway, more battle!
