Xena and Gabrielle are eating dinner in a tavern, when Xena notices a man watching them. She asks why he’s watching them and he comes over to their table and introduces himself as Beowulf. Xena asks what he’s there for and he places a rusty lock on their table. The warrior looks at the lock for a moment and then tells Gabrielle that she needs to talk to Beowulf. Later in their room, Xena is reluctant to tell Gabrielle about what she discussed with Beowulf. The bard assures her that she doesn’t need to know everything – but the next morning, Gabrielle awakens to find Xena gone, and a note on her bed.
