"The Key" is the 8 episode of 3 season of the TV series "Lexx".

The episode aired on Mar 26, 2000 on the Sci-Fi Channel in the UK.

The script for the episode was written by Paul Donovan. The director of the episode were Chris Bould.

For the concept that controls the Lexx, see The Key.


Returning to the ship, Stan wants to destroy the pair of planets so that Lexx can eat, allowing them to move on. Xev distracts Stan with a strong sexual interest, giving him everything he wants while gaining the key to the Lexx.


Using an incarnation in Xev's image, Prince continually probes Kai, 790, and Stan, asking for a way to get the Key to the Lexx. They hook Stan up to 790's diagnostics and Kai determines that the Key could be released during sexual rapture, instead of the ecstasy near death which Prince is so familiar with. Prince (in Xev's image) then concerns herself with a complicated ritual to give Stan the ride of his life.

Kai gets suspicious and tests the Xev impostor twice, to see if she kisses like a real Xev. After obtaining the Key, she then countermands the order to destroy planet Fire, and directs Lexx to Water. Kai then kills her, and the Key flows to a dismayed Stanley.
