Episode Summary

Event: LIBYA 1300'S

Sydney and Nigel rush off to Brussels to search for Zeus' sacred sundial, at the request of Sydney's old friend, author Eric Dalt. Eric is convinced that his girlfriend is a vampire descended from Zeus' lover Lamia, a lamae. In Greek mythology, Hera turned Lamia into a serpent to keep her away from Zeus. Since, her descendants have mesmerized their men. The spell can only be broken by the great god's sundial. In Brussels, Sydney and Nigel discover lamae, one of whom has set her sights on Nigel. Sydney must take on the female coven - alone.moreless

  • Sydney tries to save a friend from dying.

    Eric - an old friend of Sydney's - wants some help. He thinks his girlfriend (Suzanne) is trying to kill him - through her connection with an ancient female Greek cult. Sydney and Nigel go to Belgium. Eric is dying. Suzanne is jealous and unhelpful. And Nigel begins to fall under the cult's spell. Sydney believes that an ancient sundial will help Eric and they infiltrate the cult. Apparently, these women entrance the men and then kill them. But Sydney and Nigel get captured - and the cult try to brainwash Sydney while Nigel falls more deeply under the spell a cult member Emmanuelle. Fortunately, Suzanne comes to her senses and helps Sydney escape. They rescue Nigel but then Sydney has to fight off the cult members to take the sundial. They rush to hospital where the sundial and Suzanne's love help Eric recover.

    This episode had potential to be great - however the acting and plot wasn't so good. The acting for the characters of Nigel, Suzanne and Emmanuelle were generally poor. And there was a big similarity between how the main villain (Anna) disappears after the fight scene and how the main villain in the episode 'Nine Lives' disappears. Only Sydney comes out of this episode with her character intact.moreless
  • A vampiress killing her love.

    Syndey gets a call from Eric who asks her to come quickly. He is dying from an unknown disease and he thinks that his girlfriend Suzanne is responsible.

    When they arrive, Suzanne is less than welcoming and wants them to leave because she can take care of him alone. Around her neck she wears a symbol of a cult.

    Sydney and Nigel follow her to where she joins with the rest of the group and it doesn't take long before the hypnotic power overtakes Nigel and he is drawn to the women.

    This episode was entertaining in some respects, but there are better ones to watch. I didn't like it, but I didn't hate it either.moreless
