Legendary Journeys

Season Two of Xena: Warrior Princess aired from 30th September, 1996 to May 12th, 1997. The idea of this season was to deepen the characters and to create oppurtunities for future plots and scenarios. During the production of season 2, Lucy Lawless suffered a pelvic injury while filming a segment for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and a "Xena-lite" episode was produced to give her time to recover. There is considerable debate as to exactly which episode this is. Most fans assume that the extended body switch with Callisto in Ten Little Warlords was the episode in question, but R.J. Stewart stated that it was actually The Quest. Rob Tabert, on the other hand, indicated that it was in fact For Him the Bell Tolls.
