In a fun episode, Xena, Gabrielle and Joxer must stop Bacchus, and his vampire-like women even if it means turning into them. Chuck in a headless Orpheus, impressive Dryad SFX, groovy music and some flashy camera work and it makes this a memorably different episode.

It begins ordinarily enough with Xena and Gabrielle discussing the disappearances of some girls. They are in the Bacchae forest, and pretty spooky it sounds too. They are interrupted by Joxer, being pursued by a pack of wolves. After chasing them off, Joxer reveals his message for Xena - a the disembodied head of Orpheus. Bacchus has done this as he is mobilizing and expanding his empire. Xena must try and retrieve Orpheis` lyre - the music of which is the only way to tame the Bacchae. They must then enter his lair and kill him using a dryad bone. Easy.

Disclaimer :-
No Bloodsucking Bacchae were harmed during the production of this motion picture. However, a few driads lost their heads.
