When Gabrielle arrives in the village where she was to meet Xena, she’s surprised to see that her friend is about to let a group of warriors burn her at the stake. Thinking fast, the bard manages to extinguish the fire and frees Xena. They flee the village square and hide in an alley. It’s then that Gabrielle realizes that’s not the warrior who is with her. The look-alike identifies herself as Leah, a Hestian Virgin Priestess. The two women finally meet up with the real Xena. The warrior realizes that someone may be intentionally putting the priestess in danger. The trio head to the temple to find out what is going on.
