Dear Hercules: the Legendary Journeys fans, please help me figure out which episode this Hercules clip occurs in?

It's used in Hair, a terrific Media Cannibals vid from the VCR era that [personal profile] gwyn is remastering, and if I can find the right episode, I can give her the DVD version for her remaster.

All we've got is this very short clip. A floor of dry leaves, some possible buildings in the background, and Hercules doing a forward shoulder roll. Very generic.

But: if you slow the clip down frame by frame, you can just see that Hercules is wearing Iolaus' amulet. Which I thought meant that the clip must be from Descent, the second Dahak arc episode in season 5, but I've been through it twice already and I can't find the damn clip. If you remember, Hercules starts wearing Iolaus' amulet in the beginning of that episode, and then hands it back to Nebula at the end and sails off to Ireland for shenanigans with Morrigan.

So, is there another episode I've forgotten about where Hercules also wears Iolaus' amulet? Or am I off track entirely?

Gosh, that's hard to see. Are you sure that's Iolaus' amulet, and not some other random amulet? ETA Or a wayward leaf?

I'm thinking those possible buildings have the feel of him coming out of somewhere underground, not any of the villages or similar, but I could be wrong. Of course, there must be some great big door or stone thing closing behind him that we don't see in the clip, right? Or some baddie about to step into the frame right after the clip?

Hmmm. Time for me to break out the DVDs tonight, methinks.

FWIW, that clip is nowhere in the episodes in the first three disks of season 4.

Just had another random thought before sleep claims me... systematically checking every Hercules episode might not find that clip, if it's from an episode of Xena where he guest-starred.

I'll continue the hunt tomorrow, and I do have all of the Herc and Xena DVDs.

My pleasure. I think it's wonderful that these vids are being remastered and preserved.

I can check those two Xena eps that Herc appears in tonight after work, easy! And then I'll keep working my way through HtLJ S4.
