Summary

Review

Xena is teaching Gabrielle how to catch fish with her bare hands in the pool at the foot of a waterfall, when a young boy runs out of the woods pursued by a gang of men. She rescues the boy and defeats the gang and discovers that the boy is on the run because his father believes he has to sacrifice his son to his god. Xena can't believe that a father would really kill his son, and proceeds to investigate, but finds that it appears to be true. After several scuffles with the gang of zealots, Xena discovers that the father has been drugged after Gabrielle becomes delirious having eaten some nutbread intended for the boy. Meantime the boy is recaptured by the zealots and Xena is in a race against time to stop the sacrafice. Turns out it was Maell, the boys brother, who pretended to be a god with special effects. Xena foils his plan, but at the last instant, a voice comes from no where telling him he doesn't have to sacrifice his boy. Xena commends Gabrielle on her impression, but she said it wasn't her. They both stare into the sky cautiously! If this review has yet to be written, YOU COULD BE THE ONE TO WRITE IT!!
