When Aphrodite steals a Mystic Diamond - that keeps the North Star lit. She casts a spell on Xena, Gabrielle and Joxer to bring out their innermost desires and to stop their attempts to recover the Mystic Diamond which turns Joxer into an ape man, makes Gabrielle vain, and preoccupies Xena with fishing.

Trivia:This episode's plot bears a striking resemblence (but most probably coincidental) to the title of the 1967 Beatles' song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds"; Lucy could refer to Lucy Lawless, and Xena (her character) is planning to shoot a diamond into the sky.

  • Xena can sense Ares but not Aphrodite

                                              Disclaimer:

"Joxer`s dignity was slightly harmed during the production of this motion picture. However, Gabrielle`s pink nightie was restored to its original condition."
