Xena and Gabrielle are attacked one morning while they are sleeping. Their attackers were sent by the warlord Zogrius. He wants to prevent Xena from interfering in his plans of attacking a nearby village. On their way to find the village, they are met by a man, Howar, from another village. He tells them that his village is in danger of being destroyed by a giant. Xena decides to head to his village instead, but she sends Howar to the other village for a message for Zagreas. The warrior and bard find that Howar’s village is deserted except for one woman, Minya. She is thrilled to meet the warrior princess and is willing to do anything to help. Howar returns and tells Xena that Zogrius has called off his attack. The warlord wonders what Xena is up to.
