Alti is back, as are some of the Amazons for Sin Trade part 3! More spiritual battles, deerskins and some impressive CGI skeltons in a Jason and the Argonauts style fight scene as Alti tries to steal Xena`s baby`s soul.

The episode opens with a nightmare for Xena. She realises that something is very wrong and she travels back to see the young Amazons she met in 'Adventures in the Sin Trade'. When she gets there, Xena realises that it is Alti, who has somehow managed to regain her power in the spirit realm. Gabrielle is the one who offers to go through the ritual to become a shamen as Xena is not able to this time. However, after all her deer hunting, Gabrielle is no match for Alti and nearly dies. They realise they need the power of all the Amazons and that Yakut is the one who inadvertantly released Alti. With the help of the Amazons, Xena tricks Alti into a fight between their spirits - the skelton fight. Thankfully it works!

The title is a play on words and refers to an old comic song entitled "Dem Bones, dem bones.."
Anyone wondering where Sheeri Rappaport's character Otere has gone - the main young Amazon in 'Adventures in the Sin Trade' - well, Ms Rappaport got a regular role in NYPD Blue!

DISCLAIMER: Xena and Alti were bad to the bone during the production of this motion picture
