Xena stops a war between the Amazons and the Centaurs while Gabrielle becomes an Amazon Princess. The episode begins with Xena and Gabrielle crossing Amazon lands, and meeting a party of Amazons including a hostile Ephiny (Danielle Cormack) and a more friendly Terreis (Rebekah Mercer). Suddenly they are attacked, and Terreis is hit by an arrow. Gabrielle leaps up to try and help her, but Terreis dies after passing on her right of caste to an uncomprehending Gabrielle. It turns out that Terreis was an Amazon princess, and Gabrielle has inherited her positions as well as her necklace! Meanwhile, Phantes(Colin Moy), a centaur is captured with the very same arrows that Terreis was shot with and the Amazon Queen Melosa(Alison Bruce) plans to have him executed. Xena realises that there are other forces at work, and goes to investigate the local warlord Krykus(Mark Ferguson) and his henchman Celano(Chris Bailey). Gabrielle finally gets out of that peasant blouse and skirt, and into something much more attractive.
In important episode for Gabrielle, and the introduction of the always popular Amazons.

No Males, Centaurs, or Amazons were harmed during the production of this motion picture.
