Athena attacks Xena's hometown in an effort to destroy poor, little Eve. Xena further masters the art of seduction and manipulation. And the renowned cult sci-fi vixen Musetta Vander finally makes her way to the Xenaverse (as Elanis, Athena's girlfriend … I mean … second in command).
Soldier: "I hate this watch. Nothing ever happens … Who goes there?! Step forward! … Well, well. You know, this is Prince Damron's road. You'll have to pay the toll."
Elanis: "Toll? Dear me, I seem to be a little short at the moment."
Soldier: "Well, I'm sure we can sort something out."
Elanis: "Oh, I'm
sure we can." - enter 20 or so silver-clad archers.
Elanis: "Get her!" - Xena breaks up the party.
Gabrielle: "Shh, you'll give us away. Mommy's working."
Xena: (to wounded soldier) "That should ease the pain. Can you stand?"
Gabrielle: "Xena, are you alright? Who were those archers?"
Soldier: "It doesn't make sense. I mean, who'd want to seize the road to Amphipolis?"
Ares: "Hey, Xena. Have a change of heart? Well, my offer still stands. I am willing to protect you and your child at no small amount of personal risk I might add."
Xena: And what if I decline? You ransack my home town, hold my mother hostage until I agree?"
Ares: "You've got the wrong god. There's another who deals in mortal blood … (Xena rips an arrow out of the wounded soldier to see the engraving on the tip) … Like all the other gods, she knows your bundle of joy portends the demise of the Olympians."
Elanis: "It is done. We used your arrows as you ordered and spared the border guards to tell Xena that we are headed to Amphipolis."
Athena: "Don't tell me one of those toll collectors laid a weapon on you."
Elanis: "Xena was there."
Athena: (heals the cut on Elanis's cheek) "You have my favor, Elanis … always. But take care, it doesn't make you any less mortal."
Elanis: "I saw the child. I could have killed her for you."
Athena: "You're a fine warrior, Elanis … but the most dangerous animal on earth is a mother protecting her young."
Athena: "In the name of Zeus, I will kill the child myself."
