Xena Warrior Princess - Ides of March 4x21
This scene kills me.
The role reversal. Gabrielle the protector and defender after her path of love, and Xena the vulnerable and helpless, her back broken.
The prophecy has come true and they both know what is to come. In that moment of acceptance they do not show fear, only love as they try to comfort one another.
It is so romantic and intimate that it actually feels voyeuristic to watch, and to know that it is the end for them both yet their only thought is for each other is just what this show was all about.
The tears actually fall from Gabrielle’s face. i hadn’t noticed that before.
