The Giant Killer
22 January 2020 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Xena and Gabrielle have gone to a biblical time. It is the era of the Philistines and Israelites.

Xena has gone to a giant's graveyard to meet a giant who once saved her life 10 years earlier. Goliath a friendly guy but seeks revenge for the death of his family.

However Goliath has sided with the Philistines who have captured some Israelites and show cruelty to them.

This is another variation of the David versus Goliath slingshot story. This time Xena helping out the Israelites. Goliath gets a bit more complexity and a sad backstory. Gabrielle falls for the psalm quoting David.
