An interview with Renee O'Connor about AFIN part I and II
The quote that stuck out for me is that first one about how if it was up to Gabrielle, she wouldn’t have let Xena die and that she did not even care about those souls. But that she did care about Xena being in peace.

You go ROC, always knowing the heart of Gabrielle so perfectly.

The smile had taken on a frozen quality. “Thank you for the share, Terra! I think that’s quite enough for today, don’t you?”

She’s the one who’s going to need therapy after this,” Wash murmured. Terra at least had the grace to look sheepish.
