Trivia
Karl Urban was originally intended to reprise his role as Cupid during the "Twilight of the Gods" storyarc in Season 5, but was unable to return due to filming "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy as the character Eomer. Karl Urban eventually returned in Season 6 as his equally popular character Julius Caesar. When asked about the fate of Cupid at a convention, Karl replied that he remained at Mount Olympus with Aphrodite and Ares - the only two surviving Greek Gods.

The show was originally set in Greece, but by the third season the show began to take place in Rome, Egypt, China, Japan, Siberia, Norway, North Africa and India. In addition to the Greek mythology, Hinduism and Christianity were also introduced through several story arcs.

In the end titles of almost every episode there are a few funny lines, known as "disclaimer", which usually end with "the production of this motion picture". They're related to the content of the episode. Several episodes in Season 1 have no disclaimer; from Season 2 onwards every episode gets one.

Q
What happens to Joxer's brothers?
A
Presumably Jet spends the rest of his life in prison as we see him sentanced to in 'Prince of Assassins'. In 'Eve' we are told that Meg has taken her sons and daughters to visit family in Athens. We know that Meg is an orphan and that Joxer is from Athens so it implies she is going to visit Jace who must still be alive.
Q
What happened to Valesca?
A
-Last we saw of Valesca she was trapped in molten lava during 'A Necessary Evil' but had attained godhood so that wouldn't actually kill her as it didn't kill the now goddess Callisto. In 'You are there' Charon the boatman refers to Valesca as one of the people who Xena killed whom he has conveyed across the River Styx into the afterlife. This suggests that Xena returned and killed Valesca offscreen, possibly between seasons 5 and 6 when she had the ability to kill gods.
Q
What is the Twilight and what happens to the Olympian gods?
A
-The 'Twilight of the Gods' is a prophecy regarding the fall of the Olympian gods such as Zeus, Hera etc It begins in the Hercules ep 'Armageddon Now' with the death of Strife, killed by Callisto using a dagger dipped in blood from the Golden Hind, one of the few weapons which can kill immortals. It is followed by the death of Hera who is killed by unknown means by her husband/brother Zeus in the Xena ep 'God Fearing Child'. Zeus himself is then killed by his son Hercules using the rib of a Titan (the ancestors of the gods). Athena, 'Goddess of War and Wisdom' then takes the throne but she, Poesidon, Discord, Artemis, Hades, Strife's twin and Hephestus are all killed by Xena using the power of the God of Eli. Both Ares and Aphrodite temporarily lose their goodhood but have it restored in the Xena story 'You are there'. In 'The Xena Scrolls' and several other Xena and Hercules' stories we see that Ares is still up and around in the modern world and still has his god powers. There's no word on Aphrodite, her son Cupid, his wife and their son Bliss or Appollo and Hermes, Olympian gods whom we meet on Xena and Hercules but we never see killed during the Twilight. Also there's no word on what happens to Odin or any of the other non-Greek deities we meet during both series. Presumably they were either killed off by the agents of the 'God of Eli' in the same way as Xena was employed against the Olympians or their existence is tolerated as Ares and Aphrodite's is because human belief in them and worship of them ceases almost entirely. In 'Deja Vu all over again' Ares comments that he is now significantly depowered because he has not been worshipped in the modern era
