Episode Summary

EDIT

When Xena defends the Fate's temple, they give her the gift of changing the past: her brother Lyceus never died and she never became the warrior princess... but that also means she never rescued Gabrielle from slavers.

  • Xena's wish...

    8.0
    For saving their temple, the Furies grant Xena's wish; she had never become a warrior and her brother Lyceus had never been killed. The only catch is that if Xena sheds so much as a drop of blood, everything will be returned to the way it was.



    Did the Fates set up a no win situation for Xena? Would the normally enthusiastic and somewhat gullible Gabs be so miserable and cynical if her life had been drastically different?





    Although I enjoyed it, I found this episode to be disturbing. An alternate reality is usually much worse than the situation you already have.moreless

  • 2nd episode of Season 2, Xena and Gabrielle find themselves heading to the Temple Of The Fates. Upon getting to the Temple, the Temple is attacked and Xena and Gabrielle do what they do best…. Protect.moreless

    This is our first encounter with the Fates, and we learn how cryptic they can be. They allowed Xena to go back to a time where Xena never became a warrior. They took her back to when her brother Lyceus was still alive. The conditions of Xena staying in that time is to never shed blood in rage…. Never be a warrior. This of course all comes with a price…..

    Instead of losing her brother, Xena quickly learns that her mother is dead. She is very upset and realizes that Gabrielle is not in her life either. Xena is trying to adjust to this "new" life when she realizes that Gabrielle is still around, but as a slave to a Warlord. Xena then does everything she can to save Gabrielle, who does not even know Xena, from the life of a slave.

    I think this is such a great episode. One of the first episodes that puts Xena and Gabrielle's love to the test, and that they are destined to be together. The back story was interesting as well, but not the main point of the episode. I think that it was meant to show that no matter what, Xena and Gabrielle belong together. All in all, this is definitely one of my favorite episodes of the series, and the first in an "alternate" life. "Remember Nothing" stands at best in this category of episodes, only to be surpassed by Season 6 "When Fates Collide".

    In a funny little bit about the opening scenes…. Gabrielle is still in her Season 1 peasant clothes while traveling with Xena!!!moreless
  • What If???

    a classic episode in every sense of the word,season two had gotten off with a great start in Orphan Of War and this is a major episode of epic proportions,a genuine episode tht screams of brilliance.

    it is the usually common What if episode tht is commonly used in tv shows of a particular genre(see Buffy,Doctor Who,the x files etc)and this is again another fabulous version of tht style of a what if episode.

    Xen meets with the fates for the first of several times throughout the course of the series.

    they help Xena into seeing into an alternate reality if she had never picked up the sword.

    the result- her brother is alive,but Gaby is sent into slavery.

    a genuinly fantastic episode tht is of the best ever made...which only adds to the brilliance of season 2.moreless
