|While Xena and Gabrielle are eating in a Tavern, one of the girls working there reports having seen a ghost outside. Xena goes out and finds the ghost of her dead lover Marcus (from The Path Not Taken) waiting for her. He starts to tell her of a terrible change in the underworld, but before he can finish some dark figures appear to drag him off and they all disappear. Going with Gabrielle to the place he mentioned before he was dragged off, Xena dives into a lake and swims to the bottom where she finds her way through some caves to the river Styx. Going across, she discovers that the demented Atyminius has taken over the Elysian fields and thrown those who should be there into the underworld. Finding Marcus, they proceed together to a castle where Hades, is imprisoned having had his helmet of invisibility stolen. Xena and Marcus discover that the psychopathic murderer Atyminius has stolen it and has plans to invade the world of the living, starting with Gabrielle. She escapes with Xena & Marcus's help. Together, they follow Atyminius to a wedding, where he plans to kill the bride to be, his trademark. Xena tricks him and kills Atyminius. She returns to Hades without the helmet asking him to allow Marcus into the Elysian fields. Hades agrees and Xena & Marcus spend one more day together. Then she has to kill Marcus to send him back. Gabrielle comforts her as they look over the lake.||If this review has yet to be written, YOU COULD BE
