TEASER

 

FADE IN:

 

ANNOUNCER

Last Week on Xena

 

GABRIELLE

Okay, I admit it. I'm excited. I mean

c'mon Xena, not EVERYONE gets

an invitation to go see Sappho.

 

Xena chuckles and rubs her partner's back as she turns to watch the land growing closer.

 

XENA

I wouldn't call a request

for help an invitation.

 

CUT TO:

 

Xena stops, and begins looking between Sappho and Gabrielle as an idea takes form; a smile begins to spread across her face. Gabrielle takes notice and sits up in her seat a little straighter.

 

GABRIELLE

Oh, I know that look.

What are you thinking?

 

XENA

It just might be crazy

enough to work.

 

SAPPHO

What?

 

CUT TO:

 

The two women step out of the dressing room. Xena's eyes widen when she looks at them dressed in identical outfits. Sappho's hair has been cut to match Gabrielle's and now it is nearly impossible to tell them apart.

 

Gabrielle and Sappho look at the shocked expression on Xena's face and without a word they both cross their arms at the same time and look at her with bemused smiles.

 

GABRIELLE/SAPPHO

Well?

 

 

XENA

Well what?

 

GABRIELLE

Who's who?

 

Xena walks slowly around them, looking them both over. She stops and slides her arms around Gabrielle from behind and whispers in her ear.

 

XENA

You're mine.

 

CUT TO:

 

ADRIENNE

What in the name of....

 

SAPPHO

I can explain.

 

ADRIENNE

I hope someone can. You tear

out of our bedroom... like....

 

She stops, turning slowly to Gabrielle.

 

ADRIENNE

(Contíd)

It was you in our room, wasn't it?

 

CUT TO:

 

GABRIELLE

Do you get the feeling for people

who are in love they don't like

each other very much?

 

XENA

I think they've just got problems.

I would imagine the stress of this

situation is laying pretty heavy on them.

 

 

GABRIELLE

Then we have to find the answers. If

they're really in love, they deserve

the chance to fix what's wrong.

 

CUT TO:

 

Xena and Gabrielle enter the room to find Adrienne hand feeding Sappho an olive and then giving her a passionate kiss.

 

GABRIELLE

(whispering to Xena)

Maybe we should come back later.

 

Xena nods and they are about to leave when Sappho laughs, pulls back from Adrienne and waves them in.

 

SAPPHO

Donít be silly. Come in.

(to Adrienne)

You be good.

 

CUT TO:

 

GABRIELLE

I think I made a mistake.

 

XENA

What kind of mistake?

 

Gabrielle turns around and sighs.

 

GABRIELLE

Iím not so sure anymore.

 

XENA

You think Adrienne may

now be involved?

 

CUT TO:

 

Dashing over, she realizes itís Gabrielle who has taken the arrow in the back and takes her from Sappho, slowly lowering her to the ground. Gabrielle opens her eyes and smiles when she feels Xenaís arms go around her.

 

GABRIELLE

Ouch.

 

Xena grins at Gabrielleís word, but they both know that the wound is worse than either is willing to admit.

 

XENA

Youíre gonna be okay.

 

Gabrielle just nods as her eyes slip shut.

 

ANNOUNCER

And now Part Two of A Muse in the HandÖ.

 

FADE OUT.
