Giant Killer

Xena: Warrior PrincessWhile Xena meets with her old friend, the giant Goliath, Gabrielle encounters some Philistine soldiers who have taken several Israelite prisoners. Xena is upset when she learns that Goliath is working for the Philistines. As Xena talks with Goliath about why he is helping the Philistines, Dagon decides to execute a prisoner, David. Gabrielle tries to stop this, but is unsuccessful. Xena arrives and soon she has freed the Israelites. Once they have reached safety, Xena tells them that she knows how to take care of Goliath. The two warriors will meet in battle the next day. But Goliath is prepared for her and the Philistines use the opportunity to ambush the Isrillites. During the attack, David’s brother Jonathan is seriously injured and dies. Xena realizes that with him gone, the Israelites will need a new leader. David offers to take on the giant.
