a classic episode on many many levels,it reaches into Xenas past to a great effect not shown to an extent before on the show(besides The Debt).
we find out about the events which lead to Orphan Of War,and even the heart wrenching death of Borias...and his killer.
Lucy is fantastic on all levels throughout this episode.
Past Imperfect shows Xena almost powerless against her enemy as She is exactly like Xena which makes it a very difficult foe to prevent from persuing their carnage.
Past imperfect is of a fantastic standard visually and in its direction by Garth Maxwell.
it is one of the best episodes on the show and of this season.
