Gabrielle, while bringing Xena`s body home to Amphipolis, encounters the Amazons (with Ephiny) only to discover she is the new Amazon queen. A new amazon, Velasca (Melinda Clarke) killed queen Melosa in fair combat. They want Gabrielle to give Xena an Amazon funeral - a cremation - and stay and rule. Meanwhile, Autolycus finds Xena`s spirit inside him. Together, they must steal Xena`s body from the Amazons, defeat an evil Amazon and reach Ambrosia to bring Xena back from the dead. There is a brief guest appearance from Michael Hurst.

Lucy isn`t in it much as this was an episode created as a result of Lucy`s broken pelvis accident. The story was by RJ Stewart, Steve Sears and Chris Manheim - the whole writing team. Anytime Lucy is in it, she barely moves. The infamous Kiss scene is a big favourite among subtext fans. Did Gabrielle kiss Xena or Autolycus?

Disclaimer :-
Xena`s body was not harmed during the production of this motion picture. However, it took weeks for Autolycus to get his swagger back.
