The Dirty Half-Dozen

Xena: Warrior PrincessAres has taken the secret to making Hephaestus’ metal and has given it to his protege, a young warrior named Agranon. The young man is very open to the god of war’s plans for ruling the world. But Xena is on to Ares. She and Gabrielle free three of her former warriors from prison and a fourth from his impending execution. Xena offers them a chance to earn their freedom by helping her stop Ares and Agranon. While the four warriors may have once been in Xena’s army, none were there at the same time. So while they may trust the former warlord, they don’t trust each other. But Xena believes that they will soon learn how to work together as a team. Xena divides them into groups of two. Glaphrya and Darnelle are to gather supplies. Walsim and Monlik are to map out a way into the castle that Agathon and his army are using, while Xena and Gabrielle go to see King Gregor about using his army for a deversion. But after visiting the castle, Monlik decides that he has the upper hand over Xena since he has the only map. When Xena disagrees and demands the map, he tries to kill her. The two fight and soon it’s Monlik who is dead. Now the others must find their own way into the castle.

Xena: Warrior PrincessGabrielle struggles to come to terms with the fact that she killed Meridian as she and Xena travel to a village to find passage back to Greece. As they pass through a forest, three Banshees appear. The Banshees attack Xena, but leave Gabrielle alone. They back away from her saying they worship her. Since Gabrielle isn’t feeling well, she convinces Xena to give up the fight for now and they leave the forest.

In the village, Xena leaves Gabrielle at a tavern while she goes to speak to the captain of a ship that will be going close to Greece. The bard finds her appetite has returned and is soon eating everything that the tavern keeper will sit in front of her.

Outside the tavern, a crowd has gathered. They shout at Gabrielle and throw torches into the building, trying to burn it down with her in it. But the bard manages to use a pole to vault out of the structure and lands in the water nearby. She climbs onto the peir and the villagers chase her. Xena hears the commotion and follows.
