Trivia

Originally, Eve was supposed to follow Xena and Gabrielle outside after Gabrielle hears about her parents. Michael Hurst, the director, decided it made the scene too "clunky" and gave Eve's lines to Xena. See more »

The danger of vengeance
22 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

Directed by the very talented Michael Hurst, "Who's Gurkhan?" dealt with some very dark subject material.

Revenge is not an uncommon theme on "Xena", it's not even an original concept for Gabrielle to be the one seeking it, but "Who's Gurkhan?" dares to take Gabrielle closer to the edge than "The Return of Callisto". It is the darkest Gabrielle ever is in the series.

While Gabrielle's character explores her dark side, Virgil finally shows his "Joxer" colour as he is sadly reduced to the comic relief. Not that Lee can't pull off the humour, but, until now, he's always been a much more dramatic character. Both Lee and Wilkinson were woefully underused.

Make-up, sets and costume outdid themselves again, which gave Hurst more to play with, which, with his cineographic eye, made for a very visually stunning episode.
