The gods have gathered in the Great Hall on Olympus. They’re angry that Ares has kept the fact that Livia is Eve to himself for so long. Athena says that now Xena is a mother, she’ll be even harder to stop and calls on the Furies. Ares says he has already tried that with Xena. Athena knows that, but claims her plans are more subtle. Aprhodite begs her not to go after the bard. Athena tells her that if she’s got such a soft spot for Gabrielle, then she shouldn’t watch.
Meanwhile Xena and Gabrielle, after saving Eve from a mob seeking revenge against Livia, are with the followers of Eli. Xena says that Eli had a way of initiating people into his way. A woman says that there is someone who continues that tradition, the Baptist. They go to this man and he baptizes Eve. As he is doing this, Xena gets a message sent by the Archangel Michael. Suddenly Poseidon rises in the ocean as Discord, Demios, Hades, Hephestus and Artemis appear on the beach and attack Xena, Gabrielle and Eve.
