In a mythic tale, Hera chains Prometheus so his gifts to man start disappearing..(healing, fire, etc.) According to Greek myth, Prometheus was a Titan who stole fire from the gods to give to man. Because of Hera`s nasty trick, people now lose the ability to heal so the smallest wound can kill. However, Prometheus is bound with the chains of Hephaestos, and only the sword of Hephaestos - made from the same metal - can cut the chains. But there`s a catch. Whoever strikes the blow, will be killed instantly!

Hercules and Iolaus join in to help Xena & Gabrielle set Prometheus free. Along the way Xena and Herc, and Gabrielle and Iolaus do a bit of bonding in this enjoyable crossover episode.

Notes: Michael Hurst managed to break his wrist filming the fight in the barn. This episode also features the Hercules comic character Falafel, the salesman. Watch out for the scene where Xena is being dragged through the air by the bird. As she crashes into some mountains, the mountains shake!! Jodie Dorday who plays the dancing priestess Io, is better know as the Amazon Solari.

Disclaimer:- Iolaus was harmed during the production of this motion picture. However, the Green Egg Men went on to live long and prosperous lives.
