  • Sydney is forced to help another relic hunter find an ancient Greek statue of Athena.

    7.0
    Sydney is captured and an ancient Greek necklace is placed around her neck. Carson - a rich relic hunter - utters a few words which forces Sydney to do her bidding. Sydney becomes pliant and leaves her work to help Carson find an ancient Greek statue. Nigel and Karen are concerned and find out that the necklace/words put a spell on the wearer. Sydney goes to Greece to help Carson find an ancient buried town - where the statue may be hidden. Carson is concerned that a nearby volcano may explode and bury the Greek island - so time is short. All the while, Sydney struggles to break the spell but is unable to do so. Nigel goes to help but gets captured. Carson forces both to help her and they find an entrance into the buried town. They have to avoid some ancient traps - and while planning to do so - Nigel escapes. Sydney and Carson go back underground while Nigel follows and knocks out the guards. Sydney evades the traps and finds the ancient statue. Nigel follows and helps Sydney break the spell by taking off the necklace/uttering the words. Sydney then uses the necklace on Carson to save the statue and issue orders to the guards.



    In the previous episode, Nigel acts out of character for storyline purposes - in this episode, Sydney does the same. While it is disconcerting to see Sydney so unnaturally happy, the storyline is interesting and the scenery great. There is a great scene near the end where Nigel plans to knock out one of the guards, trips and knocks him out anyway!!! Claudia Christian (who was great as 'Susan' on Babylon 5) plays the villain well - with a few quirks thrown in.moreless
