Cradle of Hope

Just one brief comment on this charming episode:

Xena (to King Gregor and Pandora, when asked about her wishes for the baby she and Gabrielle had found on the river): "Just one request: Name him Gabriel".
Telling, isn't it? ;-)

P.S. This episode has many symmetries with the 3rd series crucial episode "Gabrielle's Hope", which will ignite the beginning of the infamous Rift between Xena and Gabrielle... In Cradle of Hope, there is also a baby in a basket left alone on the river, and there is also the importance of Hope as the last thing that remains when everything is lost...
