Xena arrives in Amphipolis to find that Gabrielle’s sister Lila, and their friends, Autolycus, Minya and Joxer have gathered at her mother’s inn to surprise the bard for her birthday. Also at the inn is a strange woman, who watches the warrior.
Later that night during a storm, Xena looks out the window and spots someone in the courtyard. She then hears a crash and goes to her mother’s room, but it’s empty. She breaks open the door to the strangers room and finds her dead on the floor. Discord appears and tells the warrior that Ares appointed her Goddess of Retribution, and that she has until sunrise to find out which one of her friends killed the young woman.
