Deleted Scene from the Season 4 Episode 9 Past Imperfect
Season 4, Episode 9: Past Imperfect
In order to save a town from destruction, Xena must figure out who is copycatting her past evil deeds.
SCRIBES & SCROLLS: Written by Steven L. Sears; Edited by Robert Field; Directed by Garth Maxwell
PASSING PARADE: Marton Csokas (Borias); Catherine Boniface (Satrina); Craig Muller (Pasicus); Paul Gittins (Kaleipus); Mark Ferguson (Dagnine); John Manning (Oaklin).
STORY SO FAR: An enemy who seems to know Xena’s every move, recreates a battle from her past which brings up old and painful memories for the Warrior Princess. Meanwhile, Xena fears the prophesy of their death is at hand and tries to cottonwool Gabrielle.
DISCLAIMER: Borias’ goose was cooked during the production of this motion picture.
REWIND FOR: Supersonic cannonballs – they were going awfully fast in that long shot in Xena’s first vision… smart gal, inventing rocket fuel.
Satrina’s soldiers are part fish – they were under water way too long to be good for the health. Easily five minutes by my watch… but I guess that’s the advantages of living in an era which has yet to invent time.
The worst midwife in the business (see below – literally).
Yikes, Scary Xena Alert – watch those baby blues bug when she says: “Getting inside my head now?”… hey, I got chills. And yeah, I think Satrina well and truly got a clear picture of what was in Xena’s head.
The face of a woman in labor and pretending not to be, as Xena squeezes out her “crucify them” line.
QUOTABLE: “We’re going to need a lot of wood. When I’m done here there’ll be a line of crucified bodies leading from Corinth to the Caspian Sea and I will crucify them all.” Xena, who, if taken literally, seems not to understand that you can’t crucify an already crucified body… not much point really.
“When I saw Borias’s body I couldn’t believe he would come back for me and he loved me.” Awww, Xena, what’s not to love?…. killings, maimings, poor parental role models and treating your man like dirt, aside. Actually, she has a good point…
