    Elixir was a superb episode of Legend of The Seeker and I really enjoyed watching this episode because there was more character depth and growth as Richard really began to understand Kahlans powers after she confessed a peddler. I think this episode had a great story, entertaining action, and intriguing drama. It was also fun to see another Wizard and more magic. This episode among others had its share of shirtless Richard, and bathing Kahlan which adds appeal. Richards training with Zedd and how it helped him defeat the other Wizard was a part of the lessons Zedd has been teaching. I enjoy the humor between Zedd and Richard about the lessons. I look forward to watching the next episode of Legend of The Seeker!!!!!!!moreless
  • Legend Of The Seeker is running along very well and getting better with every episode.

    I liked the moral dilemma posed in this episode, with respect to magic and how it should or should not be used. The people of the village were buying all kinds of potions from a local magician, and their lives were so affected by their use that they had ceased to be normal. On the other hand, Richard has to use one of these potions in the course of the story to be able to save Zed. So the final message is, it's not the means that is problematic, but the way we use it. Magic is something special and it exists to be used for particular reasons. We should neither fear it nor misuse it. After all the story of the Seeker emphasizes in many occasions on the suspicion and persecution of wizards and Confessors by ordinary folk. It is exactly the misuse of magic in everyday life that causes it to be feared.

    There is also a secret that has to do with Kahlan and Richard, I assume it will begin to be revealed in the next episodes.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • In this episode, we see that Zedd has the power to command rats through oral command and without using his hands.

    • Nitpick: In the opening of the episode, where Richard is chasing the horse thief, when he's on the back of the horse, he has only the vest on his upper body. When he falls off and watches the thief ride away, he's wearing both the vest and a shirt underneath.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Zedd: Your enemies will be far more devious than a melon.

    • Kahlan: (speaking of a young couple) Maybe there's hope for them.
      Zedd: Maybe for them. But not for the two of you.
      Kahlan: What are you talking about?
      Zedd: Kahlan, Richard has feelings for you.
      Kahlan: You're imagining things.
      Zedd: To see that which is not there, gaze upon what is. I see the way he looks at you, and how you're starting to notice him. But you know neither of you can ever act on these feelings. So the question is: Are you going to tell him, or shall I?

    • Zedd: So what lessons do you draw from all of this, Seeker?
      Richard: There aren't any easy answers. Magic isn't good or bad, it's... complicated.
      Zedd: Ah, that's lesson number six.

    • Zedd: It's... something that's not easy for Kahlan. It's a heavy burden she carries. It's not for me to talk about. Maybe she'll tell you.
      (Richard goes off to ask Kahlan)
      Zedd: I didn't mean now!

    • Zedd: Rahl isn't the only evil in the Midlands. He has his sympathizers and collaborators. It's the Seeker's duty to fight them wherever he can. Remember, before chopping off the head, make certain the body is dead, lest the head grow back.
      Richard: What lesson is that?
      Zedd: No lesson. Just something I learned from a cookbook.

    • Zedd: Lesson number four, Seeker. To see that which is not there, gaze upon what is. You must learn to perceive the world as no one else can.

    • Zedd: Where there is no way, the Seeker will find a path! Lesson number four.
      Richard: You said the last one was number four.
      Zedd: Number five then!
      Richard: ... Are you just making these up?

    • (after Richard sees Kahlan nude at the waterfall)
      Richard: Kahlan, I just want you to know I didn't see anything...
      Kahlan: Richard, you shouldn't lie to a Confessor.
