Adventures in the Sin
Trade, Part II

Xena and a wayward band of Amazons seek to stop the evil darkness of Alti. Xena comes to terms with part of her past (which, as always, has turned around and bit her in her lovely posterior). Speaking of posteriors, Cyane and her Amazons are finally allowed to cross into Eternity. The writers give audiences a excrutiatingly tantalizing look into the future. And, Xena continues her search for Gabrielle with renewed hope.

Oteri: "This is good for me, right?"
Xena: "That's right. Now, just relax...(crack)."
Oteri: "That feels great."
Xena: "A little more pressure and you can kill someone with that move."

Cyane kicking a bit of Xena punk ass
Xena's Deep Dark Past:
Borias: "This woman you are trying to kill, she is with me."
Cyane: "You sent word that you wanted to talk of peace."
Borias: "That's true, but peace would be impossible if you were to kill her."
Cyane: "She tried to kill me."
Borias: "Is that true, Xena? I understand your anger with her, Cyane, but Xena's not like you and me. She thinks with her will, not her reason."

Xena: "That was some nice talking, Borias. I'll give you that ... oh come on, you really don't think I'm gonna let you punish me, do you?"
Borias: "You went directly against my plan. You almost ruined everything. Trying to assassinate her was idiotic."
Xena: "You're right. She's much too tough to die. We should definitely hang with her for a while. Besides, she's got some fighting techniques I just gotta learn."

Ah, nothing like a nice steaming before a fight
Xena: "You must feel a lot of anger towards me."
Oteri: "Yes, but in some strange way I owe you something. I mean, you taught me how to stay alive."
Xena: "No, no Oteri, if you learned anything from the that monster I used to be, it was how to stay dead, let it be known to anything that is beautiful or meaningful and I can never ask your forgiveness. I do ask that you let me help you build a new life. That's what my friend, Gabrielle, did for me."

Xena's Deep Dark Past:
Cyane: "You know, you have the potential to be one of the greatest woman warriors. At heart, you're an Amazon whether you believe it or not."
Xena: "It's not for me, Cyane."
Cyane: "What is for you, life with Borias?"
Xena: "You think I deserve better than that?
Cyane: "No, I think he deserves better than that. He's trying to change, Xena. Let him. If you two stay together, you'll just end up killing him ... and you don't want that baby inside of you growing up with a murderer for a mother, do you?"
Xena: "I'm already a murderer, Cyane. Becoming an Amazon won't change that."
Cyane: "You're a murderer because you still act and think like one. Join us. We can teach you a new way, a new code to live by. We live for each other, not for ourselves."

Alti: "You can't join them."
Xena: "Relax, Alti, it was just a proposal."
Alti: "Xena, you and I love the same things."
Xena: "I don't think so."
Alti: "Yes, we both live for power. So far, your power has been limited to a world of blood and sweat."
Xena: "I've done quite well in that world."
Alti: "Yes, but imagine what you'd do if you had the spiritual force to match the power of your army. You'd be unstoppable. Anything would be within your reach ... Greece ... Egypt ... Rome ... Caesar."

Cyane: "Don't put your soul in her hands, Xena, she'll destroy it."
Xena: "You won a spiritual duel. How'd you do that?"
Cyane: "Your choices are simple, side with us and find life...side with Alti and find death."

Alti: "Tell me who she is. Tell me who the blond one is. Tell me who she is."
Xena: "She's goodness and innocence, Alti, and she'll live inside me forever. She frightens you because she represents what can defeat you."

Xena's Deep Dark Past:
Alti: "Son of Darkness, Enemy of the Land, come and curse the child that Xena carries within her. Make sure that he never experiences the love of either of his parents."

Yakut: "This must be what the prophecy wants. She's lost all her powers. Maybe they passed to you. Do you feel any different?"
Oteri: "A little."
Yakut: (whap!) "No, that couldn't have been it. If you had her powers I never would have got that punch in."

Oteri: "How are you feeling?"
Xena: "Alti, she cursed my son. She cursed him."
Oteri: "Well, did the curse work?"
Xena: "Yes. Solan knew the love of neither Borias nor me."
Oteri: "Why would Alti do that?"
Xena: "Because she knew, she knew that the light of a child's face would turn me away from her darkness. She couldn't afford that."

Oteri: "Amazons, Xena has proven herself to be our friend. Let's give her the Amazon tribute."
Xena: "No, don't do that. You can't give me that tribute."

Xena's Deep Dark Past:
Cyane: "Xena, this is a sacred place for Amazons. Only leaders of our tribe are allowed to see this."
Xena: "You mean I'm not welcome? I thought you said I could become an Amazon?"
Cyane: "Yes, that's true, after an initiation, but until then ..."
Xena: "Who's this? Who died?"
Cyane: "A young warrior. We found her in the woods. It's so strange, she must have fallen out of a tree."
Xena: "Oh. A little red-head? She didn't fall ... I pushed her. Yeah, see I killed your little friend for sport, and now I'm going to show you how I can out-Amazon the Amazons."

Xena: "Alright, I delivered her."
Alti: "You did, indeed."
Xena: "Is all that you wanted her blood?"
Alti: "It will give me great power."
Xena: "You better deliver on your part of the bargain."
Alti: "Xena, your destiny will be fulfilled just as I promised."

Xena: "I killed all the Amazon leaders. Without them the Amazons were easy prey. They were all but wiped out ... except for you. I didn't know it then, but what Alti took from Cyane allowed her to keep their spirits in the Land of the Dead. I believe that Alti's powers derive from their spirits. She's a spiritual parasite. She lives off of their strength and turns their Light into Darkness ... and I am responsible for it all."

Alti: "Wondering what that was? That was a piece of your future. Do you know why I'm taking you into your future?"
Xena: "You want to kill me by making me experience my death."
Alti: "Oh, you're so clever."

Some very, very cruel taunting ...
Sometime in the Future:
Xena: "Gabrielle, you're the best thing in my life."
Gabrielle: "I love you, Xena."
 ... from the writers

Alti: "Your little friend is dying with you, Xena. How does that make you feel?"
Xena: "Good."
Alti: "Good?"
Xena: "Because if she's dying in my future it means she's alive now."

Xena: "Yakut, the new Holy Word that the shamaness must give the Amazon dead is ‘love.'"

Riding off into the sunset
Xena: "Oteri, tonight your destiny is fulfilled. You take my power as leader of the Amazons."
Oteri: "Where are you going?"
Xena: "Home ... she's alive."

DISCLAIMER: Xena's search for Gabrielle was not harmed during the production of this motion picture.
