This is the first episode of the show that Joxer and Callisto have not starred in together since they first appeared together on "Callisto" (excluding "The Greater Good", where only a silhouette of her appears performed by a body double).
Even though Callisto is now immortal and cannot be killed, she is scarred from the Hercules episode "Surprise" from hitting the burning tree, which came after she had became immortal. This can be considered continuity with the Hercules movie Hercules and the Circle of Fire, where Hercules had once wounded his immortal mentor Chiron and the wound never healed. It was established that this happened if one immortal wounded another.
Nitpick: At the end of the lava pit scene, right after Xena says 'let's go,' there's a shot of Xena and Gabrielle looking down the cliff. Those two are definitely not Lucy Lawless and Renee O'Connor.
Goof: Pay attention when Xena, Gabrielle and Callisto arrive at the rockslide site. Gabrielle accidentally hits a 'rock' with her staff and it makes an interesting hollow sound.
Goof: In the shots when Velasca pulls out the Ambrosia from her pouch it and when she hold it up to show everyone the Ambrosia is two different shapes in each shot. Then in the next shot it is a different shape yet again.
Xena: Look, Gabrielle, I know how much this hurts you.
Gabrielle: No, you don't! Every time I close my eyes, I hear her voice! I hear Perdicus scream. Now, I have to live with that till the day I die.
Callisto: Now, do we stick Gabrielle out like the sacrificial lamb that she is, or are we to trust that she won't be running?
Gabrielle: Xena! Are you all right?
Xena: Oh yeah, I'm fine!
Callisto: Oh, me too! Thanks for asking. But then, you've never really cared for me, have you?
Gabrielle: You're here. It wasn't my idea.
Callisto: Oh, no no, of course not! How've you been? Any new husbands since the last one I killed?
Gabrielle: Does an Amazon Queen beat a warrior princess?
Xena: Do you really want to find out?
Gabrielle: Can I ask you something?
Callisto: All right, we both know how much I love chit-chat.
Gabrielle: When we were at the village, and Xena was talking about Cirra...did you feel anything?
Callisto: My goodness, are you trying to figure me out? I'm flattered.
Gabrielle: Answer me. Or are you afraid?
Callisto: Such a pretty day for a blood bath.
Velasca: You must have a death wish.
Callisto: You know, it's funny, I think I do.
Ephiny: Shouldn't be a problem. I think I'm high on her list of things to do. Xena, that arm's dislocated.
Xena: Ah, yeah. (Snaps it back into place) All better now. See?
Xena: Callisto, I didn't come here for this.
Callisto: Well, then, you shouldn't have come at all.
Xena: You may be immortal, but I can still do damage. How'd you like to spend eternity in five pieces?
Velasca: Three heartbeats. Xena and Gabrielle have a friend. I know where you are, Gabrielle. Your heart just started beating faster. I'll quiet it down, soon enough.
Callisto: Let's play a game, shall we? I'll answer your question. If you answer mine.
Gabrielle: All right.
Callisto: What did I feel when Xena confessed her crimes? Well, the problem is, Gabrielle, I never feel anything. I mean, bits and pieces here and there, but nothing solid. Think back to when you were a little girl, and all you knew was your mother and your sister. And all of your faith revolved around them. Now kill them. My turn.
Callisto:When I sliced open your husband, how long did it take him to die?
(Gabrielle runs away, clearly distraught, while Callisto laughs. Xena approaches as Gabrielle runs past)
Xena:There's a path out of the mountains... what's wrong with her?
Callisto: We were playing a game of truth or dare. She's not very good at it.
Callisto: Here comes trouble.
Gabrielle: Xena, do you think that, deep down, Callisto feels sorry for the things that she's done?
Gabrielle: I do. I have to or I can't forgive her. And if I can't forgive her, I can't move on. Goodbye, Callisto.
Velasca: You're all fools! That mask was mine! By rites of the Amazon, that mask was mine! Hello, Gabrielle. Thought I was dead, didn't you?
DISCLAIMER: The reputation of the Amazon Nation was not harmed despite Velasca's overly radical adherence to an otherwise valid belief system.
