Okay… So I just realized that the dark and light Chakram are very slightly different… The Chakram of light having square shapes and the dark Chakram having the more razor edge shapes inside.
After noticing this, now I see all the times that the Chakram of light was used by mistake as seen here in that picture of Callisto (which I want to say is Xena stuck in Callisto’s body due to her her being more kept than usual)
[Xena’s death] is a huge regret on my part, because we didn’t realize really what it meant to people. We thought, ‘Oh, that’s a really strong ending.’ No. I just say to fans, 'Let’s pretend that never happened.’
