Xena Season 4 Episode 21: The Ides of March..We saw the emergence of "The Gabinator" - Gabrielle FINALLY lay down her peacenik persona, picked up a sword and killed to save Xena's life. She had chosen the Way of Friendship which meant she chose to kill to save a life; her beloved Xena. Xena and Gabrielle both died in this episode...once again. This episode inspired many fanfic pieces and a great deal of artwork. Here's my collection which was created in 1998. As you can see the "cell scene" is featured...for new fans, this is the scene that launched a thousand and one fanfics; superb acting by our dynamic duo and so beautiful. Gabrielle's fight to save Xena was raw and you could feel the horror of it all. Brilliant acting by Renee and Lucy.
