Full Episode Summary

Hercules was angry when he heard that the Warrior Princes Xena was raiding villages to increase her power and territory. What Hercules didn't know until later was that Xena's lieutenant Darphus was the one responsible for the total massacre of the villagers. When Xena protected an infant from her lieutenant, Darphus forced her to endure the Gauntlet, where she has brutally beaten by her own soldiers. Fleeing on her own, Xena challenged Hercules to a duel- and lost. But he spared her life, and eventually she joined him in defending the village of Parthis from her former army, slaying Darphus. Unfortunately, one of the Gods has plans for Darphus, so he becomes Ares' undead henchman.moreless
