Late one night a wounded man appears at Xena and Gabrielle’s camp. He says he has a message for the warrior, but before he can tell her what it is, the men who attacked him appear. Xena fights them off and returns to the messenger. He gives her the cryptic message and dies. Afterward, Xena makes plans to head to Chin.
As the duo travel to a seaport, Xena tells Gabrielle about her time in Chin. The bard decides that she can’t go along with Xena to Chin and the two friends say their goodbyes.
