Hercules is trapped between their universes with Sovereign, who keeps fighting him, vindictive and feeling they stand no chance to escape, so no matter who kills the other and thus makes both worlds collapse. However trough a magical pool, they can watch Iolaus's quest. It fails to prevent Alcmene being killed, before she can give birth to Hercules, by the hordes of XEna, who conquers the world under Ares's protection. Hercules realizes their only hope is to undo that by time travel, if Iolaus realizes that Kronos's magical gem is at hand. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


Gabrielle: [In an alternative world where Xena has conquered the Known World and Gabrielle is her prisoner] I gave voice to the people - the fearful, starving, the ones who disappeared in the night, never to be seen again. Have you no dignity? No rights? A right to live, to be free from harm?
Xena: I guess they don't hear your voice.
Gabrielle: I'm not the only one. You can't break our spirit.
Xena: The cure for spirit is fear.
