Xena and Gabrielle are walking through a field littered with bodies when the Archangel Michael appears. He tells them that Caligula is behind all of this carnage and that he will kill anyone who will not join his cult of blood, particularly the followers of Eli. Xena realizes that Eve must have headed to Rome and threatens Michael, saying that if she can kill gods then she can probably kill Angels too.
In Rome, Caligula is showing off his immortality to the people to gain their loyalty. When he learns who Eve is, he plans to throw her in jail. But before he can a woman comes riding up in a chariot. It’s Xena and she’s prepared to kill him. Just as she’s about to strike, though, Ares knocks her down, saying that if Xena kills Caligula, she’ll kill Aphrodite too.
