As Gabrielle and Joxer wait in a village for Xena to return from a mission, they run into Autolycus. The thief tells him that the night before, he had helped a man who looked like Joxer steal a sword. Joxer explains that it was his brother Jett, an assassin. He also tells them that his brother will probably try to use the sword to kill someone important. Gabrielle insists that they must figure out who Jett is planning to kill and find a way to stop him. The bard is fairly sure of what Xena would do in this situation and the trio soon set her plan into motion.
