Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This episode is set in Macedonia in the year A.D. 1942. Archeologist Janice Covington (Renee O'Connor), who bears a startling resemblance to our old, old friend Gabrielle, is searching for the legendary Xena Scrolls, a fragment of which was unearthed by her father years earlier. Several other people are interested in unearthing the scrolls, among them translator Melinda Papus (Lucy Lawless), a dead ringer for Xena herself. Before the story is over, the spirit of ancient Warrior Princess Xena has inhabited Melinda's body in an effort to prevent the chaotic resurrection of the War God Ares (Kevin Smith). Keep an eye out for another familiar-looking character, here traveling under the pun-inspired moniker of Jacques S'Er.
