  • Ares' debut...

    Ares makes his initial appearance in the series and his first ploy to win Xena back by attacking villagers and having her take the blame for it. Upon meeting face to face while she awaits trial in a dungeon, Ares lays a heavy line on Xena, "Behold your former mentor and still greatest fan". He goes as far to offer her freedom if she will embrace her former past. It's probable and safe to say that even if Xena's sentence were death, Ares would never allow it to happen. When Gabrielle's plan of defense fails, Xena devises a brilliant plan to save herself.
