|Xena visits a palace and is somewhat surprised when all the guards stand down; she meets with King Lias and he explains that she is the splitting image of his daughter, Diana. The problem for the King is that some group are trying to kill his daughter before she can marry the princeling from a neighboring state. At first Xena is unimpressed until she hears that the marriage will bring the end of slavery in the neighboring state, at which point she agrees to help. Xena meets Princess Diana, and there is indeed a striking similarity. However for Xena to take her place, Diana must take Xena's place, and rides out of town on Xena's horse to meet Gabrielle. All too soon Xena is having to contend with multiple attempts on her life as she poses as Diana, and she begins to have the disquieting fear that the assassins are working for someone within the court. Diana learns that her people aren't getting the attention they deserve. Xena learns that Philamon secretly loves Diana, but is going to allow his brother to marry Diana. When his brother sees 'Diana' fighting, he decides not to marry her. Xena captures the insider and Diana and Philamon get married.||If this review has yet to be written, YOU COULD BE
