Cast Edit

Background information and notes Edit

  • This episode was hastily written after Lucy Lawless was injured and fractured her pelvis. The few scenes featuring Xena were filmed while Lawless was still recovering.

Continuity and mistakes Edit

  • When Autolycus bursts out of the dagger vault, one of the doors swings shut behind him. In the rest of the scene, the doors are still open.

Disclaimer Edit

  • Xena's body was not harmed during the production of this motion picture. However, it took weeks for Autolycus to get his swagger back.
