Summary

Review

Hades appears to Xena and asks her to help him free his sister, Celeste, who has been kidnapped by an elderly but good King Sisyphus. It's not however straightforward since Celeste is Death and with her held captive no one can die. At first Xena thinks this is a good thing and ignores the request, but when Xena and Gabrielle meet some injured people in the road, her opinion begins to change. When they visit a hospital, she becomes convinced that she must free Celeste so that these peoples suffering can come to an end. Assisted by Gabrielle and a friend she's met on the road, Talus,  who has knowledge of the King's Palace, Xena sets off to release Celeste. King Sisyphus is the master of trickery, and almost traps Xena, but with the intervention of his wife, he is stopped and death is freed. Just in time, Toxeus and his army of undead attack. Celeste touches them and they pass on. She also takes Talus, at Gabrielle's sorrow, because he has been dying of a disease for some time now, unable to die. Gabrielle cries as they leave.
