|When they hear of six abductions of local girls, Xena and Gabrielle venture into the woods where the Bacchae are known to live to try and recover them. No sooner do they enter than they meet Joxer who is being pursued by wolves who are almost definitely in truth the Bacchae. After fighting them off, Joxer opens the bag he was carrying and shows it's contents to Xena - it is the head of Orpheus, the musican who keeps Bacchus the god of wine and his deadly bloodsucking followers the Bacchae at bay. Deprived of his body by Bacchus, he can no longer play his lyre and thus the Bacchae are on the loose. Returning to the place where he left his lyre, they found his friend murdered and the lyre gone. A festival is in full swing and Gabrielle is drawn into dancing with two women who may well be Bacchae themselves. Seperately a pair of thieves come on two girls carrying the lyre and attempt to steal it from them, a bad move since the girls are Bacchae. Joxer believes that Xena has been bitten by the Bacchae and watches her as they visit a Driad cemetary to gather the bones which will kill Bacchae. Having been unable to recover the lyre, Xena and party attempt to enter the caves where Bacchus and his followers dwell, a task hampered by the fact that Gabrielle becomes a Bacchae herself. Drawn into Bacchus web of depravity, Gabrielle turns on her friends and only by becoming a Bacchae herself can Xena hope to complete her mission and save Gabrielle. It also turns out only a Bacchae can kill Baccus.||If this review has yet to be written, YOU COULD BE
