Xena visited Chinn (China) around the year 10 BG (Evil Xena period) and again in the year, 5 AG. As Evil Xena, she popularized the "Heads on Pikes Great Wall Garden Ornaments." Later she also introduced the technique of hairpin fatal lobotomies. (See Episodes "The Debt I & II, Back in the Bottle, and Purity). This time she returned to Chinn as a tourist. (BG=Before Gabrielle; AG=After Gabrielle).
"No blood was spilled or vases broken during the filming of this trip although a few funny looks were endured."
