Xena and Gabrielle escape a storm, unleashed by the gods in an effort to kill Eve, in a cave. Joxer is waiting for them with three people who say they are Magi, with gifts for Xena’s baby. But the warrior recognizes one of the gifts as being sacred to the goddess Artemis. She and Gabrielle fight the “Magi.” During the fight, Joxer is cut on his arm. Xena recognizes that one of the swords belonged to a warrior from the temple of Apollo, which means there was poison on the blade. Xena sends Joxer and Gabrielle to find a certain tree to make an antidote.
