  • In one word: Fantastic.

    In an act of jealousy, Aphrodite, the goddess of love, enchants Gabrielle's scroll, so that whatever she writes in it becomes true! When Gabrielle (unaware of the enchantment) awakes the following morning, she finds a horde of barbarians galloping towards her and Xena gone! She performs amazing stunts and fighting skills to fight them off, to find Joxer in Xenas place! She suddenly thinks that this is all familliar and results back to the scroll. She relises that she had written this previously that night. She and Joxer then set out to find out what has been going on. She writes that the 'force' that enchanted the scroll lost all its powers and that it be bought to her. Upon discovering that Aphrodite was the culprit, she relises what kind of good she can do with this scroll and she tries to end war once and for all, but words it wrong and just causes Ares, god of war, to lose all his powers. After travelling around for a while, Xena finds Gabs and gang, and after coming to the conclusion of what bad it can do and that no one should have that kind of power, comes up with the idea of writing down the truth to end the spell. It works and everything returns to normal.
