Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Hudson Leick makes her first official series appearance as ferocious blonde warrior Callisto, who is forsworn to avenge her family's death at the hands of Xena's former army. Callisto sets her plan in motion by posing as Xena (Lucy Lawless) and committing random acts of terror in order to frame the ex-warrior princess for murder. When this plan falls through, Callisto kidnaps Gabrielle (Renee O'Connor), using the girl to lure Xena into a fatal trap. Also making his first Xena appearance is Ted Raimi as klutzy wannabe warrior Joxer.
