When 790 reluctantly reveals that Xev has a built-in expiry date that's only 79 hours away, the Lexx heads to the planet Woz where the only remaining Lusticon, the love-slave transformation device, is located. Before they can use it to reset Xev's expiry date however Stan and Kai are sucked into a war being waged between the Wozzard and The Dark Lady, each having very different opinions about the morality of the Lusticon.

The Wozzard tells Stanley Tweedle that he must first kill the Dark Lady, who he claims is creating love slaves to sell into the sex industry with short expiry dates. The Wozzard however lies about his lusticon, and uses it to revert Zev into her old form prior to sentencing on the Cluster, forcing her to watch a badly made propaganda video, but doing nothing to alter her expiry date. Eventually Kai and Stan breach the Dark Lady's fortress, but it is the Wozzard himself that kills her. Kai however is able to recover the control interface, allowing 790 to restore Zev's love-slave body and libido, but with a new expiry time of 79 years. The planet is later destroyed by Mantrid drones.

The episode is an obvious tribute to The Wizard of Oz and contains many subtle references to it:

  • Wozzard refers to the Wizard, the Dark Lady is the Wicked Witch of the West.
  • early in the episode the crew crashes a moth on the ground killing someone (who?) in a manner similar to the death of the Wicked Witch of the East.
  • The Dark Lady has a crystal ball like Wicked Witch of the West
  • Cyclones are constantly in the background in tribute to the method by which Dorothy was taken to Oz.
  • In the final scene, Xev says, "There's no place like home."
  • more?
