When Xena protects the temple of the Fates, they grant her wish that she had never followed the sword, but only if she never draws blood in anger. As she sees her loved ones tormented by warlords she eliminated in her original life, her temptation to fight for right increases. Will she be able to resist ... and should she? Written by

The "new" Xena kills less often than then "old" Xena, but still quite often. In this episode, Xena catches a spear thrown at a priest of the Fates and throws in into the chest of the warrior who threw it in the first place! She kicks the sword out of the hand of the warrior who recognizes her and catches it from the air, then slashing the man twice in the chest. Another foolish warrior charges straight into the sword Xena is wielding. In the final battle, she kills one of the three warlords' warriors with her signature move, back to the enemy, stabbing him with sword at her right side, waist level, right into his abdomen. Even though the reality then resets to the moment outside the temple of the Fates when the boy charges straight at Xena and Xena does not kill him, she has already killed her *in her continuous time-line*, so the kill counts. The "new" Xena's body-count after this episode is 45. It is also worth of noting that in the alternate time-line, Gabrielle makes her first kill, stabbing Mezentius, but since that time-line is erased, the Gabrielle in the "real" time-line has not killed anyone.
