Xena and Gabrielle are stunned when they see that the reborn Hope looks identical to her mother. The warrior tries again to kill the evil goddess, but Hope wages her own attack, even against Gabrielle. The two manage to escape the barrage of weapons that Hope is hurling at them. Outside the halls of war, Xena is angry that Gabreille stopped her from killing Hope before when she was still vulnerable, but the bard explains about Ares’ threat. Now that Hope has completed her rebirth, she and Ares start on their own plans. Callisto realizes that she won’t be a part of those plans. She appears to Xena and offers her help in killing Hope, providing that the warrior will end her life with the Hind’s blood dagger when they are finished.
