The Lava Pit is the iconic pit that Gabrielle and Hope fell into, during the eventful climax of the "Sacrifice II".[1]

When Hope fell into the pit, her father's flames rose to her rescue[2], whilst Ares saved Gabrielle from death, due to their contract.[3] Xena demanded to marry Ares in front of the pit.
