12 Great Homoerotic Duos on TV
Xena and Gabrielle ('Xena: Warrior Princess')
Were Xena and Gabrielle lovers? Is the sun going to come up tomorrow? "Probably" would be the answer to both of those questions, and as to the former Lucy Lawless all but confirmed it in a 2003 interview with Lesbian News, stating that the strapping twosome were "definitely gay" (even "married") when referencing the famous mouth-to-mouth scene in the Season 2 episode entitled "The Quest." Of course, the show's writers embraced the ardent "shipping" fandom that sprouted up around the couple, liberally sprinkling romantic innuendo into many of their interactions throughout its six-season run.
