Zeus pays a visit to the Fates, who confirm his belief that the twilight of the gods is approaching. They tell him that the birth of Xena’s child will be the beginning. Though Hera tries to disuade him, Zeus decides that Xena must die before the baby is born. Hercules catches up with Xena and Gabrielle, bringing a gift for the baby. But as the three friends are talking, Proxitici appear. They fight them off and learn that about Zeus’s plan. While Hercules goes to talk to his father, Xena and Gabrielle head to the underworld to get Hades’ helmet of invisibility.
