TV Guide Online
The Archangel Michael asks Xena and Gabrielle to stop the evil - and immortal - Roman emperor Caligula (Alexis Arquette), who is slaughtering innocents. Afraid for her daughter Eve, who is in Rome, Xena agrees to the job. But her plan takes a bad turn when she learns Caligula has taken Aphrodite (Alexandra Tydings) as a sex slave. If he dies, she will die, too. To complicate matters, Michael manipulates Eve into becoming the bait he believes Xena needs to kill Caligula...

Sofrina`s Summary
Archangel Michael calls on Xena to stop new Roman Emperor, Caligula, a madman who has achieved god-hood. The girls arrive just in time to interrupt Eve`s execution, learning that Caligula is sapping Aphrodite`s god-hood and killing him means killing her. Things get tough when Xena is stripped of her god-killing power and Caligula saps the last of Aphrodite`s immortality. Lots of bare midriffs; Xena`s stunt double really outdoes herself; chariot racing; and Kevin Smith`s edible bare chest.

DISCLAIMER: Gabrielle's undercover disguise was extensively harmed during the making of this motion picture.
