Hooves and Harlots-When Xena and Gabrielle encounter the Amazons, Gabrielle tries to save an Amazon and unwittingly finds herself an Amazon princess.
This episodes introduces 2 civilizations: The Amazons and Centaurs, which Xena has had past with both. We also introduced to Ephiny, as well as Queen Melosa, who are both well-rounded characters and it's refreshing to see more strong warrior women other than Xena. The subplot with Gabrielle protecting Tarais and getting her right of cast was great. Now Gabrielle finally gets to learn how to fight and do more than just talk all the time. Krykus was pretty good villain, it was a good twist with him wanting to force the 2 groups to go into war. I also love the fight scene between Xena and Melosa, and also how both groups came together in the end to defeat Krykus. All in all, a great episode with a lot of introduces and things for the cast to do.
