  • And the Award for Most Pointless Revelation goes to...

    Soul Possession-Ares wants Xena's soul for eternity, and he will do just about anything to get it. He bargains with Xena over Gabrielle's soul using a contract, and almost gets Xena to marry him. Of course Xena is aware of Ares' tricky nature and backs out of the marriage. So, the reincarnations of Gabrielle, Joxer and Xena have to fight with Ares at a modern-day meeting of CH.A.K.R.A.M. Xena manages to destroy the contract Ares created to get her soul. Once again, Ares' plans are ruined. While it was nice to see characters of Harry, Annie, and the psychologist again, this episode is rather random and pointless. First off, the gap between Adventures in the Sin Trade and Family Affair is ruined by inconsistantcy. Second, the Xena and Ares getting married was unrealistic and came off forced. Third, the revelation of Ares saving Hope and Gabrielle is way over due and after 3 seasons of believing that vague explaintion of Family Affair, it's really not need and pointless at this late in the series. The parts that I did enjoy was seeing Joxer again for the last time and Meg singing with the whip cream on her body. But that's about it! All and All, A pointless episode that brings up some unneeded plot developments!
