Eve gets herself in trouble again when she heads back to Amazon territory. Varia suffers from an extremely dangerous inferiority complex. Gabrielle gets her arse whooped instead of Xena for a change. Ares returns to the malevolent genius that he is. And, Xena's left to pick up all the pieces.
Mawu-Ka: "You've seen our lands. You've seen our hunting grounds. Our numbers grow bigger everyday. Will you join your tribe with ours?"
Kanai: "These are good lands, but my people grow restless and wish to return home."
Gwyn-Teir: "This valley is the birthplace of the Amazons where Artemis created our people. This is our home … for all of us."
Mawu-Ka: "We can't survive scattered to the winds any longer. Everywhere, Amazons are persecuted. We have united to protect ourselves."
Kanai: "And everything is decided by your council of Queens?"
Varia: "Not everything."
Mawu-Ka: "We uphold Amazon law, but Varia leads our warriors. She is our Queen. She brought us together and made us strong."
Varia: "And now, it's time to use our strength. We've spotted Roman troops combing through our forest."
Gwyn-Teir: "Why would the Romans come here?"
Varia: "Whatever the reason, I'm going to make sure they don't leave."
[Eve wanders through the forest.]
Roman: [from a distance] … "Keep moving. She can't be far."
Eve: "What are you doing here?"
Roman: "The Emperor dispatched us to be your guard."
Eve: "My guard? I'm bringing a message of Peace. I can't come to the Amazons with Roman troops."
Roman: "I have my orders. We will accompany you."
Eve: "This is insane. Tell the Emperor that I must do this alone. I can't--"
[A shrill war cry pierces the forest as Eve and her 'guard' is surrounded by hundreds of Amazons.]
Soldier: "They're surrounding us!"
Roman: "I thought they were a small tribe."
Eve: "I am a representative of Eli and of Rome! I am here for Peace!"
Roman: "I don't think they care … Fall back! Stay together! Keep tight!"
[The Amazons attack the small band of Romans.]
Roman: "Come on! I have to get you out of here!"
Eve: "No. I'm here for a purpose. I'm not leaving."
Varia: "Well, if it isn't Livia."
Eve: "I'm Eve, Messenger of Eli."
Varia: "Take her prisoner … Whatever name it is that you're going by now, you're going to pay for the crimes you committed against the Amazon Sisterhood."
Roman: [to soldier] … "We've got to get word back to command! Go back to the last village, find an officer and tell him what's happening. Go!"
Gabrielle: "They won't take us either. He say's there's a legion of Roman soldiers coming through."
Xena: "All this movement back towards Rome … I guess this new emperor's really serious about waging Peace, huh?"
Gabrielle: "Well, thanks to you."
Xena: "Eve's the one who set him on the road to Peace. Let's find another place."
Gabrielle: "Well, whoever it was, I'm just glad there's an end to the fighting."
[Whilst walking through the village, the gals come across an exhausted and wounded Roman soldier who apparently mistakes them for officers.]
Soldier: "Amazons. Hundreds."
Xena: "No Amazon tribe is that big."
Soldier: "Well, I saw it. We didn't have a chance against that many."
Gabrielle: "What were you doing on Amazon lands?"
Soldier: "The Emperor sent us to protect the Messenger of Eli."
Xena: "The Messenger of Eli, what happened to her?"
Soldier: "The Amazons took her prisoner. They were calling her Livia. They seemed set on avenging some wrong she's done to them in her past. I don't know what they're going to do to her."
Xena: "They're going to kill her."
