Xena, Gabrielle, and Joxer are visiting a village where two families are constantly feuding. During their visit, Joxer gets in the middle of one of the arguments and is killed. The two friends mourn him outside the village.
The next morning finds them back in the village and Joxer alive. Only Xena is aware of what happened before. She manages to keep Joxer alive until they are ready to leave, but when they return to the stables for Argo, they find that the mare has been killed.
The day starts off again with the trio back in the village and Argo alive. But when this day ends, Gabrielle dies. Xena knows that she must find away to end the cycle and keep her friends alive in the process.
