LAST WEEK ON XENA....
EXT. HEDELON CITY - DAY - ONE WEEK LATER
Hedelon City stands at the end of a stone lined road. It is large, and has thick stone walls. The crowned sun sigil is painted in several prominent places, and many people walking in and out of the city also wear the sigil on their robes.
Alstan and his people enter the gates. They are greeted by the men standing nearby with waves and warm shouts.
Alstan! Brother! We didn't expect
you before another moon!
Ah, my friend. I need council! There
has been a challenge to the message,
and I've come for wisdom in defeating it.
Several men gather around him. Unnoticed, Xena and Gabrielle pause in the shadow of the walls to listen. They look around in disbelief at the size of the city, and the number of people.
Xena, this is a lot bigger than I imagined.
Me too. Hard to believe something like this
grew so fast.... Right under our noses.
The guard puts his arm around Alstan's shoulders.
Trouble? Hard to believe. The word has
gone out over the land, and many have
come here to celebrate it. Look around!
Alstan turns and looks. The city seems full of pilgrims.
A sight for sore eyes. But no matter, it's
only a minor setback. Come. Let's go to
the temple, so I can hear again the
message and restore myself.
The travel party heads off down a wide avenue. As they pass a statue, they turn and bow respectfully to it, then continue on. Xena and Gabrielle start after them.
We need to find out who's behind this,
Xena. We can't take on a whole city. And
these people really sound like they.... Hey!
Xena has stopped short in her tracks. Gabrielle plows into her and bounces off, grabbing hold of Xena's arm to steady herself.
We just found out.
Gabrielle turns and finds herself staring at the statue.
It is Eve.
