Having broken free from Tartarus, Julius Caesar attempts to change both his and Xena's fate. Clearly, good judgment is still eluding the poor boy.
Julius Caesar: "Goodbye, Xena … Break her legs." -- DestinyJulius Caesar: … [examining a thread from the loom of the Fates] … "Stop … Back it up … Now … There … Let's take a look at that."Xena: "Why don't you and I work together?"Julius Caesar: "Much better … It's ironic, isn't it? How a single step can change the entire path of one's destiny. Had I not betrayed Xena, I'd be ruling Rome today. Instead, I get stabbed in the back by my good friend, Brutus, while Xena gets to ride off into the sunset with her girlfriend. Hardly a fitting end for Julius Caesar."
Julius Caesar: "So, you wanna help me conquer the world."
Xena: "Why not? We'd make an unstoppable team."
Xena: "I'd love to join forces with you."
Julius Caesar: "Some enemies are harder than others."
Xena: "Oh, I count on it." -- Destiny
Clotho: "You cannot change your fate …"
Lachesis: "… once it has been chosen."
Atropos: "Unchain us now and accept your destiny."
Julius Caesar: "Let me tell you about my destiny. With Hades out of the picture, underworld security's become rather, uh, lax, which brings me to this defining Xena moment …[cuts Xena's thread of destiny] … mysterious … romantic … good lighting."
Atropos: "Tampering with the loom will alter the very fabric of life ..."
Clotho: "… changing not only your destiny …"
Lachesis: "… but that of countless others."
Julius Caesar: [sewing Xena's thread into a different path on the loom] …. "Oh, I'm counting on it."
Julius Caesar: "That grain must be allocated. The people must eat."
Julius Caesar: "Excuse me … What news, Brutus?"
Brutus: "The Chinese emissaries have arrived."
Julius Caesar: "Ah, excellent. Lao Ma's peacemakers."
Brutus: "This visit is very important to us."
Julius Caesar: "Of course. And, as always, Brutus, I greatly appreciate your counsel … my good friend. Now, escort them in."
[Roman soldiers open the gate to the forum to find a woman dressed in black atop a black stallion. She rides into the forum easily swatting aside the soldiers. Riding up to Caesar and Brutus she lets two arrows fly, both nearly missing the emeprorer.]
Xena: [dismounting her horse and removing her helmet] … "My Emperor."
Julius Caesar: "My Empress."
