Here She Comes...Miss Amphipolis

Director: Marina Sargenti
Writer: Chris Manheim

Lucy Lawless
Renee O'Connor

Guest Stars: Robert Trebor (Salmoneus)
Calvin Tuteao (Doge of Messini)
Karen Dior (Miss Artiphys)

Salmoneus (who else?) is running a Miss Known World Pageant where trouble is afoot. Xena goes undercover as a contestant to find the villain. The main contestants and their sponsors are all possibly involved in a plot to start a war. Can Xena keep the peace and maybe be crowned Miss Known World?

Very funny episode that takes the mickey out of the beauty contest scene - one Lucy Lawless knows as Mrs New Zealand 1989! Watch out for Miss Artiphys, who is not all "she" seems and Xena`s new blonde look.

Notes: The songs in this episode were written by Chris Manheim, music by Joe LoDuca. Keith K Walsh who was mentioned in the alternate disclaimer seen in repeats was writer Chris Manheim`s brother who died of AIDS and was the inspiration for Miss Artiphys. This episode was nominated for a GLAAD [Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation] award.
